    I agree, I would start OG over Danny but he is a veteran and Iím just wondering what Nurse will do.

    Danny Green is not a starter caliber forward in this league, he does a few nice things here & there but that's it.

    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.

    Powell+Miles for Love? Would the Cavs do that?

    The best teams play a ton of minutes with only 1 big on the court. I suspect well be no different
    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

    Good point. Boston is the team that we need to beat.. and they play Horford at the 5 a lot.

    Nope. Need a young promising prospect plus salary and a pick. The Cavs dont really need to trade Kevin Love for less of what he is deemed to be worth.

    Tyson Chandler for Powell and Miles I would do but dont think Suns want to take on cap.

    We do need another big

    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.

    Modern NBA. OG and Kawhi can definitely play the 4.

    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)...
