There's a big fat opening at the SF position, vacated by RJ and Nachbar. Yi and CDR are the two best suited for that position. Yi has a year of NBA experience under his belt.

Last year he was given ample minutes to put up numbers and averaged 8.6ppg/5.2rpg in 25mpg.

Given his height & skill set, I'm picturing something like Rashard Lewis as his top potential. maybe 20ppg/7rpg in a great year. I don't think he has quite the same 3pt accuracy, though.

So... my take - maybe 12ppg/6rpg in 28mpg.
emm, nah... Simmons or Hayes before CDR and Yi(7 foot PF)... I want Yi at PF.
