I think this has already happened.

Its pretty clear we are elite now, and one of the major reasons we made a leap from last year are Baynes and Theis. I also think the time will come when Yabusele is better than either of these two guys, although that may be a year or two away.

We also could get away with drafting nothing but big men for the next 4 years, given our depth everywhere else.

I think Baynes is a keeper and Theis as well, Theis I feel deserves more minutes.  I think what we could use is a Gerald Green like player, vet who can sit and when called upon will score.  Deng was looking for an out from LA, he would be a nice addition but I don' think we have the minutes to give him.  Noel is just hanging on the bench, not a scorer but very good defender and with pick and roll and put backs he'd be good but again where do his minutes come?
Think we need to look for a competent vet who can fill in anywhere from no minutes to 20 if needed.  Almost like Scal used to do

If Deng gets bought out he actually could really help our team a lot.  Another veteran with savvy who can score on the 2nd unit would be a welcome addition.  And he has decent size too at 6'9.

We need a wing/guard who can score efficiently off the bench. Someone who can play the Tony Allen or Eddie House role. We're set with the bigs.
