Who do you guys want if you don't want DD here. If you're going to slander DD which is warranted you have to slander Bazemore for his awful playoff performances as well. Baze will get a lofty contract as well.
Whiteside is a huge question mark and he should get slandered for his playoff performance as well, especially this series. The guy's effort has been questionable, never wants to really leave the paint, and gets abused on the pick and roll. Oh and even though the game isn't played like this anymore one on one against other bigs he seems to get lost.
This off season is filled with flawed players. Who do you spend money on then?
Who to spend money on:
Horford-(versatile big man, good defensively, gaping hole at C)
Whiteside-(rebound and shot block, still learning the game, gaping hole at center)
Batum-(versatile wing player, good defender, didn't need the ball to be effective, gaping hole at SF)
Harrison Barnes- see Batum description, slightly lesser version
Festus Ezili- see Whiteside description, lesser version
Joakim Noah- see Horford description, approaching washed version possibly, proceed with caution
Kent Bazemore- same with see Barnes
Who not to spend money on:
Derozan-(one dimensional player not at a need position, that will take the ball out of the hands of the young guys)
Mo Speights (one dimensional player)
Roy Hibbert (supreme bum)
