    Unless we get a homerun on a Love/Lebron/etc scenario we have tons of cap space and our weakest point going forward is the 5.

    So how do we fix the hole at center?

    Chris Grant is a free agent, isn't he?

    In all seriousness, if we can't land a big-time free agent like LeBron, I'd throw some serious money at Marcin Gortat. He'd fit our new system with Blatt to a T.

    I say if no mega deal goes through, we get off to a good start, and Irving resigns or indicates that he will (I don't really know how that works), then we hold out until next years draft.

    I wanted to make a run for Asik, but with him off the table I think we can last one more year with Andy, Zeller, and TT.

    I don't want to waste cap space with so many young guys with extensions coming up.

    Channing Frye seems like a natural fit here for a lot of reasons.

    He isn't exact that true center but I'm not sure Griffin is even looking for one of those.

    I still like Mozgov as well as Gortat.

    My guess is we'll package Dion and TT with picks for an All Star caliber player. Roll with Wiggins at the SG spot. For SF I think we'll go after Parsons especially if Melo goes to Houston.

    God I wish we could get Marc Gasol. Would be PERFECT here.

    I'd settle for Pau, though.

    Pau is an option to consider as well.
