I think Udoh is closest to a bigger Kenyon Martin.
Also, we could keep Curry and Ellis if we had a versatile perimeter defender that was a willing and capable passer. I think such a player would be more likely to sign and take less if we got a good strong post up center first. Biedrins can be traded for Outlaw for example, especially with Lopez's rebounding. Want some 2nd round picks with that? No problem. And Biedrins can also play alongside Lopez , defending power forwards. I mean they just lost Favors. Can the trade with Utah be lopsided but still good for NJ as a franchise? That's my view. NJ should now draft a very athletic forward and sign a defensive swingman or draft maybe Barnes and sign, like, AK or Prince type. Anyway thanks for the $2000000 and you're welcome for the rebounding. Moving on. Speaking of moving on, Lee and Sacramento for example, could fit well. Think of Whiteside and of Cousins' 4/5 capability. That might intrigue the Kings enough to part with their true 1st rounder and some 20 minute worthy sub? Thompson? Maybe Charlie Bell would be included? Second round pick or two? A third team could possibly be involved. Or not. The point is $16 million outgoing to a team with a 4 need which can afford it. Udoh will really help by next year in my opinion. He is just overwhelmed somewhat, especially with the horrible substitution patterns. Remember recently when Lee was missing a couple jumpers, Udoh was not in the game, and noone went to the offensive boards for at least 4 possessions. Udoh ain't on that. We could draft a 3/4 like Singler. And our young power forward or athletic 3/4 just drafted sets us up to afford a true post center. If not Yao perhaps Gasol?
A possible rotation 2011-13: Lin, Ellis, Curry, McGrady, Wright, Outlaw, Perry Jones, Singler, Radmonovic, Thompson, Udoh, Yao (Gasol). That is a complete team that can defend and still keep some chemistry from now so as not to waste a season for such a reason.
