    Capela is more of a 4 imo. We'd need another center anyways and skilled big men seem rare nowadays. Shouldve kept Cole Aldrich lol.

    Or maybe we could give Andrew Bynum a try? He's a free agent and only 28

    Capela is a four? lol A four that can't shoot or hit free throws? Capela is a true center.

    It all depends on who we get, who the coach is, if our philosophy is going to change or not etc. Leslie might say abandon this 3pt, lay-up and FTs nonsense with focus on fast breaks and fast pace.

    Since we're probably going to be stuck with Brewer (nobody else will want him and his contract) we should try and sign both Horford and Noah and reunite the Gator bros. Then sign another back court player that can create and score for himself and make **** happen.

    Out: Howard, Terry, Jones, DMo possibly Ariza.

    In: Horford, Noah, either package the 1st rd pick and Ariza to move up and draft Heald or keep Ariza and sign Eric Gordon on the low. Pick up Russ Smith early in the off season and let him get acclimated ASAP. Try to get Afflalo . Hope to find another gem in the 2nd round preferably a PG.

    Bev, Russ Smith
    Harden, Eric Gordon
    Ariza, Beasley
    Horford, Beasely, Capela, Trez
    Noah, Horford Capela

    Or

    Bev, Russ
    Harden, Heald
    Beasley, Afflalo, Brewer
    Horford, Beasely, Capela, Trez
    Noah, Horford, Capela

    i believe rockets wont be contenders next season so we should downscale from horford and festus and go for someone like noah, bismack bimbo, or mahinmi.
    i prefer noah cuz we might be able to get him on a short term contract, perfect for retooling. and he can pass which this team desperately needs. he shouldnt cost too much either

    Brewer + KJ for Tyson chandler. He'd be the perfect mentor for Capela (who definitely is a center and not a PF).
