Maybe in 3 or 4 years if he can get stronger. But he is getting pushed around by small guys, what is he going to do with the biggens

Well he doesn't have to play the same way as Jefferson, we could play him like L.A. played Gasol (right at the edge of the paint)

However, he'd have to have a consistent jumper to play that way.

One thing I read is the contract with Roberts isn't signed yet and fits the exception very well. We may very well have another move in store.

No doubt.  One of the groups at either SF or SG will be different in a week or so imo.

Since Bonnell made that Stephenson tweet, I went ahead and made the assumption that Roberts will be signed with the room exception. Roughly $12.7 million in space to throw at Stephenson/Boozer.

Would getting both of them while still signing Roberts be a possibility?

If Roberts is signed using the room exception, then our cap space won't matter (he hasn't officially signed just yet). So if we could get Boozer and Stephenson with $12.7 million then yes.

If they have exactly $12.7M, could they sign Lance to $10.4M per and use the other $2.3M on Roberts, and then use some of the $5.3M that teams with no cap space can use to bid on Boozer?

No. you can't bid waivers with the MLE (that $5.3 million). We'd havee to bid on Boozer with the $2.3 million, or move Hendo or Neal to clear space.

Can we get Lance and Boozer the loser?

Now includes arguably the best contract handed out in free agency thus far. Seriously, we need to commend Cho on $9 million per, that's like $200,000 more than Indy was offering.

With the addition of Pargo out roster is done essentially. We have 1 more roster spot, but I'd say it will be empty to start the season. The only way anything substantial will happen would be a trade.

Yep, outside of a trade I'd think we're pretty much done.
