I could never disagree w you saying that floor spacing is the big need out of a big- and that's why jason smith is a great fit- and its why rasheed was the guy to go after- couldn't get bargnani or spencer hawes or even yi, so smith would be.nice
But besides for a floor spacing big (which there aren't too many) post defense is the other issue- and no we wouldn't need dalemberts low post offense, but do need his size- imo nene would be a better defensive pf than kmart- kmart can't cover gasol and even bynum is way bigger than nene- put nene on gasol and I'd feel a lot better- same with birdman he would just be so much more effective w a center
Glad someone mentioned floor spacing, its only been the problem for years- carmelo is the ideal sf to play an outside/in pf alongside
