More interested in looking into adding Wes Matthews on the cheap. If we can't retain Jae (hopefully due to making another big move) that is a fantastic replacement
Don’t think wes can play the 4 like Crowder and our rotation is pretty packed at the 2/3. If we are looking to replace Jae, we should take Saddiq Bey at 20
I get that perspective. I'm more coming from the perspective that it's always worth it to add a legitimate 3 & D player with versatility. There's nothing more valuable for a contender than to have a platoon of versatile wing defenders available to support the core pieces.Especially when you consider our switch heavy scheme and the level of defense that Matthews has displayed and his vet savvy and playoff experience.
I think Matthews is currently on a minimum deal. If he can be added for cheap it's an amazing move IMO.
No rookie will be ready to fill Jae's role or any major role, and if anything, KZ is on track to be a future option at 4.
