P.S. I do think that one of these guys have the potential to take the spot from MBenga. MBenga is not all that special when he plays. It is true that he knows the system after being in it for a couple seasons, but that is not a big deal imo. If one of these forwards can do play defense, score and have size, there is not much else necessary.
I completely agree about Mbenga. This guy has zero offensive moves and just fouls on defense. But if has a guaranteed contract, I bet they would keep him just to save dollars as they are way over the threshold, unless one player REALLY plays great.
