    Huge problem for the NETs at PF... how do they solve it? (suggest)

    IMO, the Nets not only need some one to take the starting PF spot in their roster, but they also need the player which will take the job to be a PF/sbCF type of player, rather than the (easier to find) SF/PF type of player...

    They need that type of player because other than having Chandler for SF/PF (even if he will have to be missed for 25 games), they also have KD to eventually be back for next season, but also because they need to have a solution in order to back up Jordan/Allen in case an injury occurs, or if a foul problem within the "bigs" appears in the most foul-vulnerable position (CF) within the roster...

    However, there is an obvious shortage within the league in the position and therefore PFs/sbCFs aren't available through free agency, nor they can be easily obtained through a trade...

    In any case, the most obvious solution that can be feasible for the NETs I can see, is to try and get Ilyasova through a trade from the Bucks who are "rich" with bigs... It will cost the Nets Dinwiddie in order to get him, but I suspect the Bucks would be prepared to through a little "smth" in the deal in order to sweeten the (hard to swallow) peel for the Nets...

    I believe that Dinwiddie for Ilyasova + Jaylen Adams + 2x2nd picks (via Pacers), or smth similar, is among the very possible trades to happen in the near future...

    Please suggest other alternatives the Nets may have...

    I would shift Jarrett Allen to PF and have DeAndre Jordan at C or keep Allen at the 5 but shift Jordan over to the 4

    It seems to me there is more demand for SF/PF than PF/C

    It does, doesn't it? Do the Nets that are the ones under the discussion here are possible "customers" for a SF/PF wing, or do they need a PF/sbCF is the Q here if I may remind you...

    Therefore failing to answer the question in the O/P but diverting the easy to understand subject instead, is by definition a troll's action...

    This feels like a thread created just to pitch a totally random, not especially logical Bucks-specific trade idea.

    1. I wouldn't call it a "huge problem," because nobody expects the Nets to contend this season without Durant anyway. They have an entire year to build up chemistry and get the roster right before KD gets healthy and they contend for real. There's no need to rush that roster.

    2. Even if it is a problem the Nets feel like they need to address, why is Ilyasova necessarily the best solution to the problem? There are 28 other teams they could go to if they want to acquire a player, and I see zero reason for them to push a Dinwiddie for Ilyasova deal right now, especially given that Dinwiddie is a much younger, much better, much more valuable basketball player today than Ilyasova is. If they are looking to shop Dinwiddie to bring in a PF, they could do much, much better than Ilyasova, IMO.

    I get that you love the Bucks man, but everything about this thread makes no sense.

    As a Nets fan Id say no thanks. Dinwiddie is too rich for a journeyman. Im comfortable rolling with what we have.

    Man, that would be some poor spacing, but most likely what they opt to do.
