    What about Larry Sanders? Yes, he's on a really big contract, but that makes him easier to get. Just think how good our inside defense would be in a year or two - JV at C, and Sanders at PF If Masai could somehow include Fields or Novak in potential trade scenario...

      Sanders appears to be a bit of a knucklehead and I think his character may be an issue for MU and the Raptors in general. From a talent point of view he was really good the last couple of years but perhaps he was playing for a contract? He's not as solid defensively as he was in previous years. His stats basically scream Ed Davis to me.

      If you want a guy like Sanders I say just spend money on Davis instead.. should be easier to acquire him for example.

        Asking price for all Philly players is picks.
        We have lots of those too, plus exemptions too and he can play 3 also. I really hope Masai deepens the bench if he's going with this core group.

          I dont think we can move on the bold until we see what we have with JV though. Will he be a force on the offensive or defensive end?

          Right now, JV needs a strong defensive PF like Amir to cover for him.

          If JV becomes a defensive stopper, like he is capable of being, then we need a low post guy at PF like Monroe.

          So...what do you guys think of JV?

          (I'm going to keep beating this horse until I get a response god dammit)
          I also believe that Monroe would be "more appealing" than K Love. Also a lot cheaper to get (surely not Amir & 3 fists as discussed for Love). My biggest issue: who can play 4? They are both really 5s. JV might develop into PF, I don't think Monroe has the agility to do. Still it would be an interesting 4-5 tandem & watching it grow.
          D might be an issue as well, but they are young....

            Well you kind of missed my point I think. I wasn't really selling either Monroe or JV.
            I just meant that whatever move we make shouldn't be until at least the end of this season, if not in 2015.

            Also I think Monroe is 4/5. I can't imagine JV as a 4.

            Heh, if he is in the D-league still in a few years I will be surprised.
            He's terrible."

            Hope you're wrong.

              I believe Ujiri will be a buyer in the deadline, and he'll be looking mainly to add depth to every position, likely the small forward spot (Salmons the only wing, Fields injury, Novak/Daye specialists only) and the centre position (JV, than Hayes - huge drop-off).

              Do NOT expect Ujiri to go out looking for all-stars.
