I'm leaving off Capela because it's almost impossible. I'm also not including names like Myles Turner because as nice as that would be, it's also not happening without heavenly intervention.

I left off unlikely players like Joakim Noah, DeAndre Jordan, DeMarcus Cousins, Sabonis and lots of others. Here's a partial list of available candidates: https://hoopshype.com/2019/06/21/nba-free-agency-2019-centers/

That leaves guys who will be available through low cost free agency or possibly realistic trades.

Maybe take the top remaining options, and do the poll again?
Change the options number, and the poll will reset. Then change it back.

Ok...Horford Dream is dead. Let’s sign some Bigs.

Pourer better be the 2nd coming of Rudy gobert (french reference ) or timelord needs to turn into capella quick. I'm ok with thies starting. But we are extremely thin against ,bucks,pacers,magic,nets,knicks,even wizards signed byrant who else let's see probably the heat
See how it shakes down but unless something happens by the morning the good but the best of the rests will ring chase lakers and clippers so I'm not going to hold my breath.

I'm down for some Poirier. If this team proves to be championship caliber somehow, just go get someone at the trade deadline; I don't need to muck up the roster with big stiffs like Robin Lopez unless he serves a role on a championship roster.

Im good with Theis and Williams at Center. I don't need a veteran blocking the Timelord at this point. I know he doesn't know what is going on half the time right now, but it's time to let him play through some of it.

We are going to be better than people expect. Tatum, Brown, Hayward will improve. With that said, I don't think this team is near contention without Horford. A mid level vet isn't going to change that. The last thing we need is Kanter showing Williams how to play defense.

I am hearing there is a real possibility that Boggie Cousins is a real chance of coming o the C's. If true that would be a great starting 5. Walker, Brown, Hayward, Tatum and Cousins.

7 foot 235 looks like will translate to about 25 minutes 10pts and 7 rebounds 1 block 3 to 4 fouls a game. Is 25 and looks a mob thug.

Sign me up.

I think Theis and WCS as well. After the drama we've had off the court this year I'll pass on Boogie.

7'0 / 235, runs the floor well, looks natural working in the low post on offense, statistically compared with Theis, he appears to be at least a slightly better rebounder, similar block/steal/foul stats. He doesn't shoot the three.

Reasonable center targets left with the room exception.

Youngins: (fits timeline with core)
Kevon Looney, Noah Vonleh, Richaun Holmes

Vets: (stopgaps while the Timelord develops)
Boban Marjanovic, Marcin Gortat, Ekpe Udoh

Scoring centers if we want to go that route:
Enes Kanter, Greg Monroe, Frank Kaminsky

Potential vet min takers:
Tyson Chandler, Joakim Noah, Zaza Pachulia

#1 - Looney
#2 - Holmes
#3 - Vonleh
#4 - Kanter

Not sure we can afford Looney, and my excitement level drops off pretty steeply after #1. It's more like 1..........2..........3..4..56789

You really think that's gonna happen? I can't see stevens being ok with that.
