Bench, depth and filling positions

So yeah. Recently someone (forgot who it was) mentioned, that we probably won't be able to resign Kenyon Martin for cheap. That got me thinking. According to Trade Machine we're currently a little more than 6 million over the cap. Outside of SG our starting five is great, but our bench lacks a little. We need caproom to etxtend Blake, we overpaid Foye and Gomes by about 4 mill (combined) in my view, we overpaid Deandre (but frankly, what other team wouldn't have), we might have overpaid Caron a little, we have 3 starting caliber PGs, no starting caliber SG, two SGs, who aren't taller than 6'4, no true backup SF, 4 backup PFs and no true backup C.

We depleted ourselves off our draft picks. 4 players are coming off the books, of wich we would probably like to resign 3 (Martin, Billups and Evans). So it doesnt look like we get considerably more capspace. But from a pure team situation we are more attractive to free agents than we ever were.

The only assets we have right now are our two trade exceptions, the 4 mill expiring contract of Randy Foye and (god forbid) Eric Bledsoe. I don't feel like we should give any more draft picks and I assume with the current point guard situation in the league it's higly likely, that we wouldn'T get as much for him as he's probably worth.

What do you think? Do we make a trade, before the deadline, do we stand pat, do we keep this roster and what FAs are realistic gets?

P.S.: I know, I know, it's too early, but I'm just curious what you think. Please let me hear your opininions and ideas on the subject and if you feel like it's too early, or for different reasons you don't care about that stuff right now, just write "too early", or whatever. Thank you very much
