He's never proven to be an "injury prone" player. He will command at least 8 million per season. If we don't think he's worth it, I guarantee he'll get it somewhere else. Then who do we have in this position? Who can we get?

Please don't tell me Kevin Love. He's another Pau in the sense that he can't lead a team as the number one.
