He's a good prospect but not what we need. I much rather draft Faried to backup the PF & maybe even the C position. We lack rebuilding & no college prospect boards better than Faried. Kid leads the entire nation in rebounding.
If we're looking for perimeter D' to help develope Fields? I don't want a rookie being thrown into the fire on a championship contening team for that situation. I want a proven veteran perimeter defender (for cheap) such as a Shane Battier or maybe even Tayshaun Prince.
I wanna keep JJ though. He plays with heart & defensive intensity. Once we add a potential FA center such as DeAndre, Nene, Chandler or even Dalembert + a rebounder? JJ no longer has to be forced to try & defend the C position; when he's a natural SF-PF combo who's best when defending the perimeter. I want JJ on the roster. He's a defensive player who knows his role as a defensive role player. Hard to come by in today's NBA. I'd love to bring back Billups for much cheaper though. Moving Turiaf also saves 4M in cap.
