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?
dalembert is tall but he also sucks. he got cut from Canada's national team. dalembert would be an awful fit. we don't need another down low player we already have nene and melo. if we get another big we need to get a guy like zydrunas ilgauskas who could spread the floor a little bit. teams are sagging on us because we still aren't a very good shooting team.
