Howard is 27. How long is he realistically going to be dominant for? He already is dealing with a back injury. His value is athleticism based and will decline as he ages. I'd say he maybe has 3 more years of dominant play, then starts to fall out of that category. He will probably be good until 35 or so, but he wouldn't keep us a contender. As far as centers go, a trade for someone like Cousins or Drummond might actually help more.
It was more than anything a crazy fantasy. We really dont need any stars like cousins or howard. Just someone who plays like tyson chandler, joakim noah, larry sanders etc. Hard nose, big, rim protecting Center who has an attitude like pryzbilla.
I'm not worried about Leonard bulking up. I can tell he wants to, i kind of sense he is enamored about being muscular. Blazers have numerous training staff that get paid for that exact thing. Lets just hope he doesnt pull an oden and put on 60lbs over summer and blow out his other knee.
