Okay, so this offseason, people are going to be talking about getting big names like Chris Bosh and Amare Stoudemire. It's probably unlikely for us to get a big name, but who are some players you have in mind that are under the radar?
Before the 2006-2007 season, we randomly picked up Matt Barnes and he ended up being such a great player for us. Do you think there's any players out there who could make the same impact or could be a good pickup for the future?
In my opinion, we should go for DeAndre Jordan of the LA Clippers. We could probably get him without giving up much in return, and have him back up Biedrins and Turiaf at the center position. He's bigger than Biedrins and he's a freak athlete. His size and athleticism makes his potential pretty good, since he's still young. He needs to work on his post game, but his big presence in the paint could help us out on the boards.He's like a poor man's version of Dwight Howard
Also, if we somehow make moves to get a late lotto pick, I think we should use the late pick and go for Hassan Whiteside in the draft. He's another athletic 7 footer. Like DeAndre Jordan, his size and athleticism alone gives him a high ceiling. Right now, he's too skinny and needs to work on a post game, but I can see him being the steal of the draft. It would be like what the Lakers did when they drafted Andrew Bynum, people didn't like the pick at first, but LA wanted a project big man who would eventually become a decent center in the league.
C: Andris Biedrins, DeAndre Jordan and Hassan Whiteside
That is a ton of size and potential right there. Randolph at 6'11", Jordan and Whiteside at 7'.
