So the draft is over, and a decent big man dropped to us at #37. For all the praise we've received after drafting Blair, he isn't the answer to the Spurs' big man problem. Unless Ian Mahinmi starts kicking ass and taking names, we still need a starting big next to Duncan, so who's available?
Here's a list of free agents I stole from an NBA message board I frequent.
Sean May (r)
Aaron Gray (r)
James Singleton (r)
Johan Petro (r)
Hakim Warrick (r)
David Lee (r)
Channing Frye (r)
Ike Diogu (r)
Paul Millsap (r)
Obviously (r) means restricted.
There's not a lot of great talent on this list, to be honest. And obviously, there are other big men out there who may be on the trading block.
I hate to say it, but I think 'Sheed might be our best bet if we can get him for what we have to offer. Zaza and Rasho also seem like viable options, but I'd rather not go there, given a choice. But let's discuss this. Out of that list, who do you all think are the best options? Or should we be looking for another trade?
