Those guys can contribute right away on defense and have at least offensive potential. Still need some vet help though, our bench looks putrid right now, that bench as currently constructed is not going to win a chip.
Still would prefer a Simmons trade (more realistic than Giannis) as that would not only expand our offense and add defense, but would provide high level protection at the PG spot in case of a Steph injury. If they could draft Wiseman and then trade for Simmons using only the MIN 2021 pick, future GS FRP(s), and Wiggins, that would be ideal.
How about... draft Okongwu. Sign Crowder with the TPMLE.
Then maybe we can grab Cody Zeller from CHA with the TPE to sure up our center rotation with an overpaid 7' vet.
Zeller / Okongwu / Chriss
Green / Paschall / Smiley
Wiggins / Crowder / JTA (or other vet min FA)
Klay / Lee / Mulder (or other vet min FA)
Curry / Poole / Bowman (or other vet min FA)
*In my scenario above, Zeller is brought on because the FO doesn't share all of our opinions (lead by LF75) that Bender is the center of the future.
The point is that our depth looks a lot better after adding a legit rotation player with the TPMLE. We're still f'd if Curry goes down, but that will be the case regardless.
