I can see lowry,ross,deroza, gay and johnson playing heavy minutes to match up when the heat go small
all three of those guys are almost in the same class as dirk when it comes to 'shooting big men'.
at worst, AB has looked like nenad krstic.... and even nenad had grit and an edge.
Hopefully bargs drops 40 of the bench today
Thing is If he plays well and we are winning I would almost bet we won't trade him.
I don't mind trading him if his value is elevated but the team also has to determine fit/usage & value.
If he & the team ends up playing well because he fits this roster with Gay, you would trade him regardless of the fact?.

I do think he brings a different aspect to the game that none else on this roster can do, when he's on offensively, none can stop him.
Where a definite future trade is concerned, talk to me when the future is here.
