    Yeah, but you always have to be a lot lucky to do something like that, and the thunder (seattle) had two top 5 draft, that helps too, but look at the lasts drafts, thabeet and the phila's guy evans I think, both second picks, milicic, I hate the draft because this, you never know what the guy will do
    with yao not coming back ( at least to a large contract ) i think we should sign him but for no more than 6-8 mil a season, i think he could be a potential all star one day

    What contract would you give to Yao right now?

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    I would give an one year mid level exception, thinking in this CBA, but i don't know, if I would risk that much, but thinking in other way, he is the best center in this FA, he is all we need right now, If we could be sure that he would be healthy for the next season...

    The problem becomes what do we do at center, the cap is GOING to shrink and it will likely be a hard cap so we might even have difficulties signing one of those guys, let alone getting a center as well. There is no one in the draft at C who I think could step in and start right away. I have been looking at trade possibilities, Andrew Bogut and Chris Kaman top my list at this point as potentially acquirable targets. I don't know what it would take to get Bogut but Kaman may come cheap(ish) since the Clips have basically let it be known they are going to match any offers to DeAndre Jordan. Of course there is still the chance that Morey is looking to re up Yao on the cheap for one season.
    man I would love bogut and kaman, bogut can be a little hard to get, we would have to give a lot for him, but kaman, if LA re sign Jordan, they would hear any offers for him, they need a SF, and we have two young and good for their game

    Has Thabeet done anything to show that he may still be able to be starting center(a good one) in the league?

    Not anything that he has done, I still think he could become one but he is so far away from it at this point unless he starts developing much more rapidly I doubt he gets there before his current contract expires...

    i would give thabeet into his 5th season. and then by then if he isnt getting better,then i would give up on him. chuck hayes is doing alot better and this is his 5th or 6th season. if thabeet could train like chuck he could be a great defensive presence!

    if hayes could have the height of Thabeet...or just be a 7-footer... he would be the best center in the league, by far...
    I don't know, i would give this offseason for him to get better, if he doesn't it is because he is in the wrong job, maybe volleyball, don't forget that he is earning 5mi/season, we have two team options on here, I think if we could get a center in FA like chandler or gasol, morey would not even accept the team option, he would save this 5 million

    Ok if athleticism is a combination of strength and quickness how the hell is Hayes not Athletic. He is quick enough to guard the 3 in many instances but he is strong enough to keep most 5's from backing him down. That is impressive athleticism, he cant jump out the gym or make circus dunks but that does not make a good BB player, in fact those guys usually end up being deficient players because they rely to much on flash without substance. The only substance I see Hayes missing is the ability to hit a *#&$ jump shot, and about 6-8 inches of height.

    I will say he lacks extreme coordination with the ball in his hands but so do a lot of guys at the 5. If he had the height I wold put him along side a guy like Tyson Chandler probably even ahead of him...

    oviously I was joking, but he would be top 10 with 6''10', with 7'' or more he would be top 3, he is not athletic but he has the stronger body in the NBA, I think just Howard and maybe Horford would be better than Hayes 2.0 giant version

    but also the reason he is so strong and almost impossible to move is cause he is alot shorter. make him taller and you have a totally different kind of hayes.

    Unless his frame as a whole grew with his height... are we hypothetically stretching him taller or enlarging him completely? LOL

    Anyway I would still say Tyson Chandler is what a taller Hayes would equate to. A bigger Hayes... 1994 Shaq. Either way unless someone has invented a science fictiony ray gun to accomplish this it is all just hypothetical. I look forward to a day when we have a Center who can swat shots as well as rebound and not be a complete offensive liability... so that Hayes can defend the 4/3 more often, he is still undersized there but it is more manageable.
