I think they do a very nice job co-existing overall, especially defensively. Last game iirc they both had a double double and 19 points a piece.
I agree that they don't co-exist around the paint as much. For the most part PP doesn't get enough post touches and has become more of a perimeter shooter.
Lopez and the Nets need someone that can REBOUND, DEFEND and finish iniside at the four. Cousins has the toughness, the mean streak and he could become that defensive anchor we need.
Getting Greg Monroe wouldn't be an issue with me either, however I'd rather the Nets go after Cousins instead.
