I thought it was obvious but I'll include the fact that he's a 3rd option on a team with 2 other Hall of Famers, so, yeah, his numbers WILL be down.

It is what it is. He was the only offensive weapon in toronto and took all yhe shots. He was never a superstar in my eyes. If he could d up true PFs i might agree. He soft

I'll take Monroe or Cousins in 2014.

PG: Kemba
SG: Wiggins / Parker
SF: MKG / Taylor
PF: Monroe / Biz
C : Alex Len

Still, I don't know if we'd be competitive enough to contend for a Championship. Playoffs, sure. Unless, Kemba improves his passing game with the talents around him, we see a vast improvement from MKG, Len is dominant in the paint, and Wiggins or Parker do live up to the hype I just don't know if we're anything more than the Pacers this year.

Greg Monroe more than likely won't see free agencey as the Pistons will work out an extension with him next season.

 

Cousins is more realistic, but Sacremento has recently retracted any comments making him available.  I personally think we have a better shot of landing Derrick Williams, but I am not too high on him myself.

 

And with regards to your Pacers comparison.  They are an organization that we should try to model ourselves after.  If you would be disappointed in ONLY reaching game 7 of the conference finals and expect "Championship or Bust" then you greatly need to temper your expectations for the near future as we have a long road to go.

He's definitely soft, but he can also rebound, so that's kind of confusing.  I think he needs to be with a more defensive presence down low.  He'd still be a superstar here since he would take all the shots lol.

What do y'all think of Al Jefferson?

 

After making $15 mil a year last season, I think he is projected to be looking for somewhere in the ball park of a 4 year, $70-$75 mil deal.

 

That being said, 18-19 pts & 8-9 rebs a game would give our team a huge boost.   I think it could be a good move, but could put us with bad cap space in a few years if he doesn't perform like he has in the past.  I've also always respected Jefferson's

 

I am more inclined for us to take a risk on Greg Oden if he checks out and passes all physicals with something in the ballpark of 3 yr. $15 mil. where if it didnt' work out, we didn't kill ourselves in future cap room.

Hickson would be nice, we tried to get him last year. I think we might go after him again this year.
