    watching the lakers game right now and amir johnson is lighting it up...gotta wonder about amir which i don't know much about, but i guess he is a center since he is guarding pau. he is one hell of a backup center.

    He's more of a PF. He was pretty solid last year.

    That said, he can't space the floor at all = we're not interested.

    if the trade with Hinkie is true then which means Morey has a bit hard time on trading Asik thing.

    This makes the most sense. Maybe Philly should throw in some sweetener. Asik is by far the best player among the four guys.

    I am with the camp that we need Hawes more than Young. A dependable backup center is very important.

    I'm not familiar with young, but from what I've saw has a jones type game that's more experienced & polished ?? can someone help me out here?

    - so if Morey gets him I'm guessing he is still trying to handle the PF spot just in case jones slacks off, and young will be more ready for a playoff run ?

    - 2 he is going to use one for a trade package ?

    Sixers fans think the Rockets need to throw in a pick to trade Asik for Young. I don't know which fanbase is overvaluing their own player here, but just goes to show you the descrepancies in players evaluation between people.

    I just don't think Young is the best fit because he can't be subbed in for Harden nor Parsons. I still like Turner as a possibility, especially his ability to create. Turner and Hawes would work.

    Also potential possibility is Cleveland. I wonder if Varejao+stuff may work here.

    Find a way to get Turner. Flip Turner, Lin, Jones plus pick for Love.

    Well, Boston has a TPE from the Paul Pierce/KG deal. So they wouldn't have to send out a red nickel of salary to acquire Asik. So he doesn't seem real credible to me.

    Thanks for the info.

    Toronto could be Morey's target. If we could get Derozan for Asik we would be set

    Derozan can backup Harden/Parsons.

    I don't understand Asik for Young. Young isn't going to start over TJ or CP25 & he isn't going to be any happier than Asik with the 2nd unit. CFs weren't happy paying Asik 8.3 M back up money, but y'all seem to be ok with paying Young 8.8 M to do the same thing. :confused:

    Asik and a 2nd for TY? Whatever. I think something else will bobble to the surface. It's understandable why Morey would prefer a first round pick, since so many of these players either aren't a significant upgrade or their contracts are too long.
