During the game it was either Barnett or fitz that praised ezilis defense and mentioned they would be dangerous with him at center alongside bogut at power forward. Could you see that transpiring?

Maybe the other way around with Festus at PF.

Hmm maybe I heard wrong that could have been what they suggested. I would think bogut would be slow for power forward.

Don't know about the mobility of those two or either at PF, but in a couple of years, who knows, a possibility and if allows Lee to be traded for something real good, great.

I heard that as well, they said something to the extent having Bogut at the edge,top of the free throw line, and with his skill level give him the ability to pass from that area, and run some offense through him.

Why not experiment ? but I doubt we see both of them on the court at the same time.

The reference was by Barnett and his point was mostly to praise Bogut's ability to run the high post in the event that Ezeli is playing himself into a surplus of minutes. If anything, it'd be a short stint sort of thing, but I'd love to see it. Defensively, Ezeli's more mobile, so you'd have him play the 4 (ala Ibaka). Offensively, have Bogut play the 4 from the outside-in (ala Tim Duncan). It'd be nasty to see on defense.

Against certain match ups it would work (Utah).
Against others we get owned (Mia, Lebron moves over to the PF and is way too quick for Bogut).
