We already have one solid big (PF/C) Biedrins so we only need one more competent big in the mold of Haslem, PJ Brown, David Lee, Matrix, Haywood, Areujua. It is very possible of picking up a true point guard like DJ Agustin even if we make a late season push. Asssuming Nellie is a short term band aid, we need a real traditional offense, so I don't see how Harrington helps as a tweener. We can't draft bigs so there is big advantage of drafting late in the 1st round, we can get the more polished bigs without athletic upside like Boozer or McRoberts or Tayshaun or Nick Fazekas. Our real positon of need ia to replace Harrington in the lineup with an experienced PF that can rebound, set picks and hit pick and pops. At our draft position, we may be more likely to land a marquee true distributing point guard that would allow us to play Ellis at his more natural SG position and a very neccessary insurance for BD and his chronic ailments.
Agree totally! I do think we can get the PF needed in the draft though. There so many PFs that there is bound to be at least one that will end up real good, thing is, will Mullin pick that right one.
I'd like to see Monta become a PG but if he could DEFEND opposing SG well enough (hard as he would always be undersized and their are more superstar SGs than PGs), then maybe drafting a PG (in the 2nd round!) would be the way to go
It sound like both you guys are talking about Josh Powell.
