I love Zizic's potential but that's going to take some time. Who out that is a legit possibility to bring in? How many would be opposed to JaVale McGee? I think he'd bring that energy/rebounding/paint presence the C's could use. Would he take that exception the C's have left? Lord knows GS doesn't really need him.

I think Horford is pretty much a center at this point.

Yeah but the C's still lack that guy I just mentioned. They will still struggle on the boards. I can't handle it another year!

If you're starting 3 6'8" guys with Horford and IT maybe they can get some boards!

Willie Reed or Dwayne Dedmon are still out there.
It's about to be crazy, G.

Would either of these guys come here for 4 million? I guess once the money gets tight, it's already pretty tight, we could pick up a serviceable big man on a one year make good contract...

Bogut on a minimum is worth a gamble.

I'd love Len if Phoenix would let him go.  He's a RFA and if they resign Alan Williams I think he can be had.

Dedmon if he wants to come east for basically no money. I would love him here.

Also wouldn't mind a flyer on Len, but the tiny bit we could offer wouldn't be worth it. Phoenix would match that kind of offer in a heartbeat just because.

2.) Jayson Tatum                   2.) Blake Griffin
3.) Lonzo Ball                           3.) No other realistic options
4.) Josh Jackson                          move the needle much
5.) Lauri Markkanen

You are right it's worth the gamble. Bogut seems to be made of glass at this point, but on a minimum deal in low minutes off the bench and mostly saved for the playoffs, he's worth the gamble!

Horford is the center. Horford as center got us to within 7 wins  of a banner. For what reason would you change that? The days of a low post lumbering center are over. It makes some people uncomfortable but it's time to Adapt

The C's have a green rook backing up him. That's the point of my thread.

we'll probably go with small ball lineups during substitutions. We still have theis, yabu, and ojeleye. Some of these guys are tough enough to play small ball 5

You're overlooking his point, though.

Zizic + Yabu + Theis + Ojeleye = 0 combined NBA games

We may end up with Zeller coming back for the vet min to back up Al.

There are options out there though, it just depends what you are looking for, a cheap vet or a young guy who could outplay his contract
