    Every team isn't the Warriors, and no home court in the playoffs is the most likely scenario right now.

    Even with a healthy Clint you need a functioning big. Dallas likely wouldn't part with Jordan for a 1st rounder, but it might be enough for Gasol or Kanter. I would go with 2 late firsts for Gasol .. 1sts have no value for younger all star level players.

    Exactly. Kanter is a fun regular season guy but hes a weakness in the playoffs.

    We literally have a top 10 center in Capela. You think Gasol is going to want to play bench minutes?? Are we ever going to play capela and Gasol at the same time. Jesus your an idiot.

    Why would we want DJ?? Especially as a backup.

    Easiest way to know who actually watches the NBA and understands basketball is their opinion of Enes Kanter

    Hell, I'll take a Kanter right now. We should be that desperate.

    To the OP's point, though - it's not like we can just go and get a Marc Gasol. Threads like these are the worst.

    Willie Cauley-Stein from sacramento is more of a guy we should target ,like him and Shump for Chriss and Knight and maybe one of those second round draft picks we have as well

    Cauley-Stein would be great here, but it’s going to take much more than that to get the Kings to bite.
