Default Scottie Pippen's modern day equivelent?

I saw another thread trying to make a roster that was in tune and a shadow of the Bulls historic 72-10 season. And I see numerous comparisons of a version of Scottie Pippen today that are just out of whack. I want to come up with a true modern day equivelent of Scottie Pippen and his game.

IMO, the closest you get is Gerald Wallace. He's a poor man's version of Pip, to me. Doesn't do many thing as well as Pippen, but his game and impact is very similar.

Lamar Odom + awareness(both, offensive and Defensive) + Leadership = Pippen.

Turkoglu is probably the closest...on offense not defense

Odom is nowhere near as tough and nasty as Pippen. I don't see any similarities.

I heard a few rumblings about Batum... But I haven't seen him enough, and I flat out don't believe it anyway. I was really going to watch him this year, but he got hurt.

Wallace isn't all that close IMO. Pip was basically the Bulls point guard, Wallace is not in that league as a playmaker. Igoudala is probably the closest.

Batum is a great defender..but he's not great on offense and is not a point forward.

positive. Pippen was a ferocious defender and competitor. his will to win almost equalled Jordan's. he could guard 3 positions. he was more of a floor leader and he almost always had an impact on whatever game he played in. Odom to this day doesn't always seem to know what kind of player he wants to be. at times he may be Pippen-like but not consistently.
