    Feel for the game, intensity and strength seemed to be his weaknesses when he first went pro; I wonder how he has progressed?

    If we can get Diallo or Wood for our extra back up big as the #14 guy, that's not bad at all.

    How much does Woods weigh these days?

    Is the league minimum 14? Always thought it was 13.

    Guess we HAVE to bring someone on then. We'll prolly wait til training camp to figure it out.

    There are quite a few decent free agents that will sign before the month is over. We’re only two weeks into free agency. Maybe Portland let’s some guys fight it out for the final spot, but I doubt it. I also doubt they’ll leave a spot open. They need a full roster because of Nurkic.

    So we have 13 + 1 two-way with Hoard. I think that makes 14, no?

    Hoard doesn’t count against the active roster. Portland will, in all likelihood, add two more players, and maybe another two way player on top of that.

    Notables left that I wouldn’t mind

    Point Guard
    Jerian Grant
    Jeremy Lin
    Shaun Livingston
    Trey Burke

    Wing
    Thabo Sefolosha
    Kyle Korver
    Iman Shumpert
    Jonathon Simmons

    Power Forward
    Cheick Diallo
    Christian Wood

    Center
    Joakim Noah
    Greg Monroe
    Pau Gasol
    Dwight Howard? (hasn’t been waived yet)

    Grant has interest from Israel. Lin should head to Asia honestly, he’d make baaank. Guys like Korver, Livingston, and Noah probably have multiple offers and are taking their time. Gasol evidently won’t be cleared until August.

    This only 10 3s attempted over the past 3 years has made me cool a bit on Livingston. I hated watching Turner take 3s so I’ll probably hate watching Livingston pass up open looks.

    WE NEED JOAKIM NOAH!!!!!!!!!

    He played well at Memphis, he's the veteran presence that we need and he also bring toughness on D and playmaking on offense.

    Please Olshey sign him!!!!!

    (also, he can become the backup C once Nurk comes back and maybe we trade Whiteside for Love/Griffin)

    Kosta Koufos would be a pretty good 3rd team center. He has the size and is willing to mix things up.
