Default what are our biggest needs?

just another trade so keep discussion going here. out of

pg
sg
sf
pf
c
bench

how would you rank them in order of need?

1) pg - we need someone to run our offense that is good at it.
2) c - our post D is laughable. we get a center and move big al to PF
3) bench - we dont have any
4) sf - we just need talent here. we have adequate players here but no one really spectacular
5) sg - Foye is great when playing here, dont really consider this a need
6) pf - no need at all

theres my list

Our biggest need is def. a center. We literally have no inside presence. Next would probably be at the point. Sure Telfair was good yesterday but I doubt he will continue at that pace.

the only reason i didnt put C #1 is because of Love being at PF and Big Al can play the C but his defense isnt great

My ranking is:

1. Point. We gotta have a legit point guard with some leadership ability.
2. Center. We gotta have center that is a defensive force with some offensive game.
3. Wing player. I wish that we could get a slasher. Someone that will attack the basket...everytime we get the ball.
4. Bench. We need at least 2 players that can come off the bench and hold or expand a lead for us. They have to have some offensive game, as well as defensive game.

1. Center . A real legit big, not another forward/center, Thabeet or Mullens would be nice.
2. Coach . Flip Saunders, Maurice Cheeks, Sam Mitchel,...

Yup def. a guy to hit open jump shots. I mean Foye does, but I would love like a pure shooter. Foye really isn't a pure shooter.

I would also like to see Flip back, why not? He was always pretty good here and he has a lot of MN connections.
