    Don't we want a PF that is not inept on offense?

    I'll go ahead and discount Morey trading Asik for an injury-prone 31 year old when its clear he wants picks and prospects.

    People are really underrating Varajao here. He was playing like an all star before his wrist injury. He's a team first guy and would not mind coming off the bench. It's like getting close to Asiks production on an expiring contract. Varajao is a better scorer, defends, can play 4/5 and has always been a an elite rebounder.

    what does Varejao offer that Asik doesn't? Asik is a better rebounder and defender and they both suck at offense.

    Aldridge has never been first to break any trades so i put no stock in this.

    Waiters is a decent option off the bench
