It doesn't look likely we'll be involved in any trades anytime soon. And that's OK. Let's hope this group of guys we have gel quickly

yeah but what if kaman is out for the couple of weeks he always seems to go down. Then we only have 1 center in deandre. Not to mention DJ prlly isnt ready to see big time back up mins per game. We need another center to complete the roster. It looks like dampier already has said he wants to go to the heat, and we already missed out on lou almundson and etan thomas. I wonder who we will pick up?

BG could hold up the 5 spot , I'm sure, that'd let Smith patrol under the canopy. Wouldn't you love to be stationed between those two?

then we would give up A LOT on the defensive end. Yes we could play small ball and really be fast, but id much rather see a line up of BG and DJ than BG and Rhino. We need another big man who can bang and rebound. Thats it.

With all the bigs now gone, the only thing to do is bring in several centers for training camp and see who sticks... I don't think we'll make a trade.

Why not in an emergency situation couldnt we move Blake Griffin to the 5 spot????? DJ is only 1 inch taller and BG weighs 1 pound more.. they are almost equal... oh wait.... its probably all in the wingspans huh?

Yeah, you lose out in wingspan, but also if u have BG at the 5 spot, you end up having to play Smith at the 4 spot. That would leave us at a huge disadvantage at small forward on the defensive end. And IMO i would rather have BG banging down low against a 6'8" - 6'10" guy than a 7ft center.

We could use a center given that all of our other bigs (besides griffin and DJ) are undersized. Meaning Rhino (6'5") and Blakely (6'5").

or Earl Barron

I strongly disagree with the idea of BG seeing any time @ 5 spot.

BG at center is a no-no. his wingspan for one, will put him at the biggest disadvantage.

I don't mind getting a guy like Earl Barron for the 5, but I don't want to limit DJ's development. I think going small might be a great idea but not with smith at the 4. I would put Aminu at the 4. We would be so quick.

just talking about going small, what if we ran baron, foye, ej (at 3), aminu (at 4) and Griffin (at 5) That is small ball but fast paced ball at its finest. But then agian small ball doesnt really get you wins...its just exciting lol

When you go small, you need to have a team that is dynamic from the outside... This team ain't it...

you hit it right on the money... was it the suns at one point that lived and died by the 3 point... i have never seen that method to be a championship one. I VOTE NO FOR GRIFFIN ON THE 5 SPOT.

If we could get a center and a PF and move BG to SF wow!! that would be awesome...
