Jordan seems to be pretty raw, but he will have a couple of years to develop in Memphis before he is really necessary as a contributor. You never know if he will end up being Dwight Howard or Stromile Swift, but that's always a risk.
Love is a good option, sure. I don't consider Koufos an option because he reminds me of Gasol and it will be painful to see Memphis drafting someone like him after that ridiculous trade.

They're both highly skilled big men, but I don't think they are the same player at all. Kofous will be much bigger and is more athletic. Koufos can play closer to the rim as well with some tutoring. He actually has more range than Gasol as well.
