Simple question with all of these big men coming available all at once whether it be by not fitting in a system, fed up with the organization or just a free agent, who would you want?
Josh Smith - Mentioned in almost every off season or trade thread any of us have ever made on here since 2009, sad. However based on the system we are running under McHale he might fit the most. LeBron and Spolstra said we're the modern day Suns now, so with JSmoove he gives us a rim running PF who shoots too many outside shots, but brings better defense than Morris and Patterson, but I think the two of them outshoot Smith.
ZBo - Randolph recently reported that he's upset and fed up with the Memphis Grizzlies and their innability to do things properly. He would give us an older big body to bang down low and grab rebounds to help Asik. However I think we run way too fast him.
Dwight Howard - He's a headcase, but I started thinking about it more in depth. If he signs a 5 year deal with anyone in the offseason it will be his decision. The money is going to be the same aside from state taxes, which does give Houston an advantage. He will have to be 100% in with the decision he makes and if he starts acting up saying Houston forced him to sign the free agent deal he will be crucified, and he knows that. He's a kid trapped in a mans body. Let's think how he would mesh with this team though, aren't we a better more effficient version of the Lakers? Would Dwight want to come here if he is going to be used the same way as he is in LA? Not to mention, don't we already have a center in Asik who is dominating the boards? He is used in the pick and roll and that's about it as far as offense is concerned along with put backs. Therefore, where would Howard play?
Andrew Bynum - Injured, and see Dwight Howard as far as place to play and would he be used since we push the ball up the floor as fast as possible.
Kevin Love - This is my ultimate pipe dream. From what I understand both he and McHale loved each other in Minnesota and this offense would be perfect for Love. He would assist Asik in getting rebounds and playing defense and has the ability to stretch the floor with a 3 pointer as well. When Asik goes to the bench he can also provide a low post presence. He has been riddled with injuries the past 2 seasons, that would be my biggest concern.
Please tell me what you think, who would you take going forward? I really think that the Rockets are one of these pieces away from really contending which is way ahead of schedule based on what they had before the season started before the Harden trade.
