Michael Beasley On The Radar

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 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.

I like Bismack at the 5, if he could put some more muscle on he would be good to go.

One thing is for sure. This team needs talent. Beasley has it and Id take a chance on him.

Since we don't have a Lebron, Wade, Durant and Westbrooke that doesn't work out with us.

Not saying we are championship caliber or even playoff caliber, just pointing out the championship teams don't have traditional centers

Interesting, they must really not want Biyombo to be the 4. Would love to see smack grown another inch for me to be truly comfortable with our front court.

Kemba, Gordon, MKG, Beasley and Biyombo would be a fun team to watch. Bring in DJ, Henderson, Taylor/Williams, Jamison and Mullens(could even add Thomas in here), off the bench and we will have improved a lot. I can see that team winning 20-25 games. We would still be in strong contention for a top 3 pick as well.

Gordon won't start, he's more effective as the 6th man.

What I'm saying are the teams that have won championships without a legit center had 2 elite scorer (The Bulls in the 90 even thoe they had 7'0 footers and the Heat this year,) or 2 PF that can both guard centers like Detroit. We don't have the scorer nor the 2 PF that can guard centers.

Not to mention most of the championship winning teams have Centers. Lakers,Houston, Dallas and Miami 1st championship had ShaQ.
