Just wondering what people think about the SF position. Should we just sign a vet to backup JJ and Derozan, and wait for Kleiza to get back? Should we try to sign a starter?
There are definitely options going both ways, but I'll really just talk about starters. Caron Butler anybody? Would he be worth say a 4 year contract (I'm not even going to guess values given how little we know about numbers in the new CBA) at likely a high price, but maybe not too high..? We really have a pretty sad situation at the wing beyond Demar. Kleiza is a big unknown given the injury, and we've barely seen much of JJ to say he can be a starter for years to come. People might say draft one, but there's no guarantee we'll get a guy like Barnes or Gilchrist, or even a big combo guard like Rivers. We may even decide to draft PG if a guy like Kabongo has a great season and he falls into our lap. Much harder to find great starting PGs than SFs in free agency. Anyway, I'm not saying we should sign Caron Butler, but maybe we should be looking at a more talented player than Matt Barnes. Or maybe we should target a great vet like Grant Hill if he's at all interested(I know he's old, but he still looked good last year), and get a guy we know can play a smart game, be a leader, and is extremely versatile on the floor.
