    It will be amazing if our frontcourt is comprised of two 7 footers for a change, with Motiejunas and Bynum... or if we get Howard he definitely plays like he's a 7 footer. We should be able to clog the paint and grab rebounds much more than in the past, either way.

    With Asik coming off the bench. That would be more quality height than we've had since Yao and Deke were on the roster.

    Good call.

    IF it plays out that way and we get Bynum or Howard, plus Asik, without giving up Motiejunas... then one thing is for sure--a lack rebounding and blocks won't be a problem anymore.

    Jury's out whether we'll have any decent perimeter players anymore though.

    i think its more of a ploy to eliminate his trade value.

    McHale is a jerk.

    Hey, Kevin, you can't act like Jerry Sloan until you've actually been successful as a coach!

    I swear this dude is going to ride our young guys right out of town.

    I am excited about Motie though. Like his mobility and skill set.

    I think Machado is Jasikevicius 2.0. He'd be a star in Europe where he could be hidden in a zone all the time. I fair about the NBA though.

    Maybe he'll be good enough for all to learn how to prononunce his first and last name although D-mo sounds cool :grin: There is always problem with European big men 'cuz of lack of brutal force, but there are always exceptions, hope he and Machado make us better
