If the Mariners brass ran the Sonics:
-Trade Kevin Durant and Jeff Green for Brian Skinner and Kevin Ollie, citing "veteran experience"
-Luke Ridnour becomes beloved local icon with own Auto Glass ad
-Ray Allen allowed to play 80 games on gimpy leg after he originally injures it in the second game of the season. Coach John McLaren says "he's bound to come around at some point."
-Sonics GM Bill Bavasi praises the gritty intensity of Luke Ridnour and says the best free agent PG on the market is David Wesley. When reminded that David Wesley isn't a free agent until after the 2007-08 season, Bavasi decides to trade Robert Swift for Eric Snow.
