Default Wilcox, Gooden, or Diogu?

Yahoo Sports is reporting that Channing Frye has agreed to sign a two-year contract with the Suns. Thus, the Nuggets have to look at other possibilities for a big man. Among those available are Wilcox, Gooden and Diogu. Wilcox, when healthy is a strong rebounder and can score sometimes. Gooden is a better offensive threat, but weak on defense. Diogu, when motivated is pretty good offensively and defensively and is younger than Gooden and Wilcox.

Given the Nuggets financial situation, probably Diogu would be their best option. Your thoughts??

Matt Barnes is probably their best option to replace Dahntay Jones.

I like Gooden, hes a hustle guy. Hes the kind of guy of guy that goes after rebounds and can give you some solid points off the bench. He has a decent mid range too. Havent seen much of Diogu tho, so i would have a hard time judging wich one is a better fit.

I'm all for Barnes by the way.

If this team is going to be completely cheap again I don't see how there's need for any more pf's who cans play the perimiter- there's still backup pg and another pf/c or c to get

We need to fill three positions a guy who can play both PF/C, a SF, and a SG.

We need a guy who can play both PF/C or just play Center as el gringos said because if he plays C, then Nene can go back to his natural position on the court, but one that can play PF/C will help out relive both positions for Bird, K-Mart, and Nene.

Small Forward is to relieve Melo, with LK possibly leavin we need someone that can play for him, Balkman is good, but can't shoot a high percentage.

Shooting Guard with Dahntay out it leaves JR, so we definitely need a player, yeah Weems is there, but I'm not sure how much "TRUST" GK has for the guy.

I dont think we need another PG because imo AC will likely return. Plus Lawson will get a chance to develop.
