    I sense we have too many guards and wings, but not enough bigs.

    Lowry, Fred, Wright, Kawhi, OG, Green, Miles, Powell.. that's 8 guys in our rotation that can't play center or PF (I guess OG can play some 4 but that's not ideal).

    So it's going to be hard for us to split minutes. I could see us upgrading one of our wings/guards (or packaging them together) for an upgrade at the 4 or 5.

    Miles seems to be the odd one out from a wing perspective.
    Modern NBA. OG and Kawhi can definitely play the 4.

      Right now the bigs we have are JV, Serge and Siakam.

      That's really thin.. if JV or Serge go down we'll be hurting. And we can't rely on Bebe all year long (assuming he's even an option). I'd feel a lot more comfortable if we could get a vet big to help round out that rotation.

      If that means trading Green or Miles to get them than I'd do it.
      Yeah, it would be good to add a backup C.

      I proposed on twitter that we should offer Norm for John Henson, since the Bucks look like they don't want to commit long term big money to Middleton and just got Lopez to play at C in front of Henson.

        Yeah I like that.. Henson has 2 years on his deal at similar value to Norm. So would match our Window that Masai set.

        I know the Bucks got Brook, but I'm sure they'd prefer to have some depth there. So I doubt they would do it.

          No way do I trade Green for another big. The guy made 2nd team all-defense in 2016-17 and is a nearly 40% shooter from 3 for his career, though he's fallen off a little shootingwise the last couple years.

          Much rather use the taxpayer MLE or deal Norm if possible.

            This is too soon: But Green is almost a better fit than Derozan for this team come playoff time.

              Yeah, any swap for a big would ideally be Norm, or failing that, Miles.

                I'd hit up the Hawks about Dedmon. Maybe they like Powell's potential. 7.2M expiring, very good defensively.

                  Not a bad suggestion.

                  For the first time probably ever, we have the luxury of too many wings. We could even trade Green and I wouldn't be upset since we still have more than enough guys to soak up SG minutes.

                    All 2-way wings too except Miles, even Norm if he can get his act together again.

                      Yeah, there's a bunch of options out there that Norm would fit if teams want to take a shot with him.

                      Dedmon (1 yr), Henson (2 yrs), Zach Randolph (1 yr), Al Jefferson (1 yr), Dwight Powell (2 yr PO), Koufos (1 yr)...

                        Except for FVV and Lowry, all can play the forward slot and except for OG all can play guard. Team is deeper now then when there were surplus C

                          Fyi Al Jeffreson was already waived by Indiana.

                            That would be a really nice pickup for backup C. He's still playing great in limited minutes and that's all we need him for. His per 36 numbers are still peak Al Jefferson.

                              Honestly this seems like an issue Masai should assess mid-season. Maybe sign a guy for the minimum, but I'd rather have the wing depth till I know what I have mid-way through the year.

                                Perhaps the tricky part of an Al Jefferson signing with the Raptors is that the bench plays an up tempo style of play - not sure that fits with Al
