Only reay two options with Jefferson in the lineup. Play MKG or go after Deng, James or a similar elite level defender. Not many Sf elite defenders In the NBA that would even be a FA the next two years.
Or play a horrible defensive lineup that can't stop the p&r and gives up 112-114 a game.
Either that or scrap Zeller being a starter the next two seasons and getting a defensive stopper at PF that can move like a Sf... Not anyone but James in this category either.
I'll keep saying this, but MKG literally holds the defense together and has twice has much responsibility of any other player defensively.
If you replace him, you need a sf that can defend at that level if the system and Jeffersoncontinue to be in place and there just isn't many options.
Honestly both of you guys are right. But MKG has to develop some sort of offensive game so he can play 30 minutes a game. Right now he isn't getting the minutes because he is such a liability on offense. But you are right that he is the defensive catalyst for this team and we are 10x better defensively when he is on the court.
