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.

  • 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.



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.

I keep telling him that as long as Henderson is on this team he has earn the right to start.

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.


I'd like to add a Center like Lopez. Other than that, it's pretty much wasting money to have a mediocre team where we would fall out of the top 3-4 lottery pick with having a chance to draft a star prospect.

Other than that, I'd take Hickson if he would come here and have him at PF with Bismsck playing the 5.

I would love to see Biyambo develop at the 4 spot with a Back to the basket 5 with pick and pop ability.

That's exactly what I'm talking about. That's why I said T-Rob could've even been a good addition if we didn't take MKG bc of like OKC where they have Ibaka and Perkins.

I think all these Bobcats' fans are dying for a real traditional Center bc they saw Hibbert shined last year. But it's hard to really find one and teams these days are really going smaller athletic players.

You also want to draft Zellers who is a 5. So if you brought Hickson in to play PF you would have wasted a season of Bismack not playing PF. Zellers gets drafted by us and now you have to change Bismack again.
