Ryan Hollins.............................better yet Alabiiiiiiii
If Gray is not back, do you guys think that Amir Johnson could be our backup center, night in, night out? That means he would play the most part of his minutes at the 5 spot. If yes, I really like our team as it stands right now. Not that I don‘t want Aaron Gray back but the possibilities of him returning to the team are getting lower and lower each and every day...
We are loaded with guards and I like the idea of playing small next year with Amir or Davis.
If we are going for a center it has to be an experienced player with an expiring contract which will offer us flexibility next year.
Dalembert and Pachulia would be perfect if we can dump some salary on the trade. I would also throw decent offers at intriguing players with athleticism like Mcgee and Lopez who are still young and may amount to something.
Otherwise, I'm quite happy to roll with Gray and Magloire as our 2nd and 3rd option.
yogi stewart is looking to make a comeback - I say give him a shot.
"I may be wrong ... but I doubt it"
I think Amir and Ed are quality backup "bigs" ... they can play together, or either can play with Bargs or Big V.
Likely they'll bring back Magloire with all the youth on the roster, so we have the bench monster if we need a big body for fouls.
The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.
The NBA has changed significantly in the last 5-8 years with C's.
There are still some big traditional C's like Chandler, Bynum or Howard but there are also a lot of other 6'9"/11" - 230/240 guys manning the middle like Horford, Love, Noah, etc.
Amir/ED are not going to handle traditional guys in the middle - but they are the minority which is why I want a guy like Gray (or Zaza for that matter). I think they can handle the 'new' NBA C.
amir faired miserably at C
tho it'll be interesting if changing to a more uptempo offense will help out
Yeah, it's hard to think of a better fit than Gray. Can Gray lose 10 lbs and gain 4-6 inches on his leap?
Man, the C position really kinda blows in the NBA right now. Not a lot of depth...I hope we get Gray back. For what we need I'd rather him than some of the other options. I don't want to start a guy like Mahinmi or Hollins. I'd rather start JV. Anyone see Przybilla play last year??? Is he still viable?? Of course, Gray is still a better option than him, too.
at this point gray isn't getting any more athletic. can he handle the up and down pace though? i dunno.
Are we talking about the same Aaron Gray? I remember delicately Charmin-like hands and a big brute of a man who ran like a gazelle in the meadow.
In all seriousness, I'd love to have Aaron Gray back. He was a lot better than advertised.
Plus he's super entertaining to watch. I go crazy on his and-1's
Just re-sign Aaron Gray to a minimum contract. Am I the only one who remembered the MVP chants?
The guy works hard, and will fit in whatever system, bring him back. No Hollins, No Mahinmi. Veterans is what we need, Aaron plays like one. With all the young guys, it's smart to bring in a locker room dog, like Magloire. I'm quite surprised we have't gone after a defensive specialist, or some type of veteran wing.
