    We can also add more good players to this group next year. Rebuilding process has to start sooner than better. Howard is not staying here even if we can get him, actually, he badly needs some one to save him just like James's going to Heats.

    im not disputing all of this but where is there evidence that hes

    1 - an aggressive rebounder

    2 - can defend the pnr

    3 - has developed a nice offensive game beyond an 8ft baby hook with either hand, ability to knock down open 3s, and a dwight howard runner.

    That is like putting Pau at Center. Yeah it might work but it limits his effectiveness. He'll be a matchup nightmare at 4. He's too fast for PFs.

    Allow him to blossom in a position that he was meant for and lets not push him into a spot he just isn't built for.

    Get him in, and ship him out to Hakeem for preseason training.

    If we need to trade Scola he seems like a good replacement. At least he can dunk.

    Get him in, let him work with Hakeem and McHale, and progressively give him minutes. Make him earn them though.

    I'm surprised by his athleticism with that height and frame. Has potential to be something, let's hope we get to work with him.

    LBJ and Royce White have a handle. This kid is not a SF or point forward. Neither it T Jones. Motiejunas is a stretch 4 with 2 post moves.
