If we end up taking a prospect, I think it's likely that we know Conley is gone.
That's exactly what came accross my mind in the Conley/Lonzo thread. I can absolutely see us using yet another assett to try to fix the center mistakes of the past. What would that be?
1st for acquiring Bradley + 2 seconds for getting rid off him
2 seconds for getting rid off Ed Davis.
1st for acquiring Udoka
1st/2 2nds for getting rid off Favors.
This is in the span of 3 years. 3 1st round picks and 4 seconds JUST FOR BACKUP CENTER! And this is when we already have Gobert as the starter.
The best part...still no backup Center.
Compared to others, I'm somewhat of a DL apologist. He did assemble a team that was the title favorite during the playoffs. But it's hard to ignore his massive failures in 1) finding a "pg" and 2) finding a backup C when both pursuits should not have been a priority in the first place. We never needed a "PG" to play next to Mitchell and backup C is the easiest position to fill in the league and least important when your best player is also a C.
