If we dont get a defensive, rebounding post player, we just can not match up with several teams in the West.
Yeah, it's not a sexy trade, but would help a lot. And, being a expirer, Seattle can't ask for much. Worth a try, I guess...
I think you undervalue Barnes's importance. I don't see Kurt being able to help us as much as Barnes does. We can't just sign a big 4 and think that we can play the same style. Would Kurt thomas scramble out at outside shooters in the zone? We'd have to change our entire defensive setup. We're not a traditional big away from anything unless we make defensive changes to go with it. Personally I don't want that because I think a lot of our players are good defenders in this style but wouldn't be in different types of play. Also we switch on everything and Kurt Thomas couldn't guard a 1, 2 or 3 to save his life. Are we talking to spell Biedrins or play at the 4?
