Would Al-Farouq Aminu be a good get for us? 

Post#1 » by HurricaneDij25 » Tue May 21, 2019 5:51 pm

I know we have our own lengthy offseason questions thread, but I'm just trying to brainstorm realistic options as to who might be available to us given that I'm not sure who'd want to come here with Vic being hurt and half our team being free agents.

Aminu did not have a great postseason, so he could come at a good price and spice up our defense at both forward positions.

Thoughts?

without specifically addressing him, I suspect a player like this is much more likely than Kemba or anyone else demanding more money than Vic is getting.

A 3&D type 4 is always intriguing. The tough part is he really likes Portland and they seem to have a lot of interest in keeping him.

Another idea would be Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. He’s older, and would be cheaper. But similar construct.

I wondered this too as a slightly cheaper, slightly younger Thad replacement. I think we'll have to pick-and-choose a bit who we resign. Bojan is probably the top of the list though I fear what he may cost. I think Thad is next. He's been great for us, but I wonder if some of that is that we have an established role to fill there and we could plug in someone else without losing too much?
