A frontcourt like this makes nugs competitive against the top teams
That teams big enough to play with anybody- only worry is loss in the speed game after already losing klieza and jones- but nene and birdman can takeover all of the roles kmart plays and can do plenty close to as good or better
Imo jason smith is a hidden gem, and would fit the nugs perfect as an outside player to complement carmelo and nene- nugs will not be able to draft a big this good the next however many seasons- and then dalembert would be so important against lakers, portland, boston, cleveland, orlando type teams- hed give so much of a break on nene and birdman and make them both so much more effective
Nene playing as a pf would be crazy- nobody could handle him- and at c he is good, but still is undersized against big c's-
I know they aren't making this trade, but the fact is kmart has to go if they are going to be this cheap- its the only option- he doesn't bring enough impact that can't be replaced for the money and amout of cap he takes up- qaurter of the cap? Not worth it IF THEY'RE STAYING CHEAP
But philly wouldn't do that trade- kmarts contract needs to be broken into 2 or 3 pieces if they really aren't using any of those valuble trade extensions and just staying super cheap mode- what are your ideas- who do you try for?
