So I think most of us will agree that the two biggest needs are:
1) Defensive, rebounding center.
2) Defensive, uptempo point guard.
Here are some possible targets:
a) Oden. Impossible to get from Portland, unfortunately.
b) Gortat? Languishing on Orlando bench, can be acquired after the 15th (I think.)
c) Joel Pryzbilla. Not sure if Portland has the depth for us to pull this off..
For point guards:
a) I like Jerryd Bayless.
b) I also like Andre Miller.
There is a whole other issue of how to acquire these players, and what we'd have to give up. But first, let's identify what pieces are needed.
Feel free to propose other suggestions.
