JC Kid has been indispensable this season.

I'm slowly coming around on keeping him long-term and just upgrading the Center spot next to him...

:dontknow:

It'd have to be someone who can defend Embiid/Giannis/BAM in the postseason while still capable of getting his own buckets when the offense struggles and Trae is being doubled.

Siakam?
Simmons?
KAT? (He at least has the size to play Embiid one-on-one.)
maybe Wendell Carter, Jr.?
or Jaren Jackson, Jr.?

How have these guys done against Embiid and Giannis?

Siakam and Simmons have held their won defensively.

KAT can score consistently against them.

I've never seen Wendell or JJJ play Philly or Milwaukee.

We had 11.

How would you do that? Capela can't be moved this year after extension, I believe. Who would you like to add?

Nevermind...just read the rest of the thread and saw you'd already answered that.

Of the guys you mentioned the only one I'd consider is KAT. The other two are not centers and Simmons is damaged and Capela is better defender than him at the center position
