These aren't even a series of little nagging injuries. These are serious knee issues to a 7 footer. I'd rather get Gasol or Jordan and take risks on talent in the draft.

Yeah I agree. It would be cool if we could sign Yao to a cheap low-risk contract since he is a UFA and not an RFA like Oden. Then we can hope that he can play an effective 20 mins a night like Big Z did for the Cavs late in his career.

But yeah a Davis/Nene frontcourt would be nice. Trade Bargs for an established SF. PG in through the draft hopefully..

Ugh I just want this team to go in the right direction so bad..
