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.
