Unrestricted free agent Michael Beasley has been receiving interest from a number of teams including the Charlotte Bobcats, Memphis Grizzlies, Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns and Detroit Pistons, according to sources close to the situation. All of these teams have been in contact with Beasley’s camp and expressed interest in acquiring the forward either through free agency or a sign-and-trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Are we trying to put a potential playoff team together?

Walker - Augustin

Henderson - Gordon

MKG - Williams/Taylor

Beasley - Jamison

Biyombo - Mullens

Well..probably not a playoff team but doesnt seem like thats a very good young NBA roster.

Would like it, but where's the Center?

I do believe that Biyombo could become a real center, but IMO i'd rather tank it again next year and get a play at a Noel or Zeller. Build it young with talents like how Cho been preaching.

2013

PG: Kemba

SG: Gordon/Hendo

SF: MKG/Taylor

PF: Bismack/Jaminson

C: Zeller/Mullens

Beasley would be a great pick-up, at least we are doing our homework.

I liked Beasley more before we drafted MKG now it's a waste of money that could be used on a 5. That will let Bismack move fully to PF.

It looks like Dunlap really wants to play Biyombo at center for some reason.

So if that's the case, we might as well get the best power forwards we can.

He's a tweener and if you sign Jamirson you got 2 soft PF/SF and a 6'9 starting 5. So again getting dominated on the boards will be a nightly thing.

I really hope Dunlap isn't a dumbass and understands 2nd chance points can hurt a lot and having a post game is needed on this team.

I feel that Dunlaps idea of Biyombo at the five might be biyombo's ability to run the floor yet hang defensively with centers. He will beat them up and down the floor all night which fits perfectly with what Dunlap says he wants to do. just a though

Running up and down the court doesn't help us on the boards or him on the offensive end when he has to post up longer players.

I agree, but we aren't the coaches; so what are you going to do... you know?

If it was up to me, I would have Bismack Biyombo playing power forward and sign one of Hickson, Jamison, or Beasley to round out the power forward position, then sign a big center like Chris Kaman, Spencer Hawes, JaVale McGee, or Brook Lopez.

However, it seems like Dunlap want's to play Biyombo at the five, and sign two of the three power forwards mentioned above to round out the power forward position.

I personally don't like the way this is going right now, but it is nice that we are actually checking up on some guys.

The reason id sign Beasley is trade value. Get a bunch of good players together and you have the ammunition to acquire a big time player. Thats how we are going to get a star here is either drafting one and developing(MKG possibly) or trading for one and convincing him we are serious about being contenders in a year or two.

  1. I'm not saying we don't need a little length, but I think the NBA is moving away from traditional centers and more towards overall team athleticism. Look at the Heat and Thunder. There wasn't a bunch of 7 footers on the court during the finals. Biyombo could have matched up against Perkins/Ibaka/Bosh no problem.
