Prokhy has already stated publicly, that he wants the russian players. There are three of them in the league. Mozgov is rotting on the bench behind Koufos and McGee in Denver, while Shved and Kirilenko are flourishing in the starting lineup in Minnesota.
All of them would really fill a need for us:
Mozgov is a defensive minded backup center, and a real center, which Blatche is not.
Kirilenko, the defensive minded small forward, who would be a perfect backup for crash, and at the same time, he is the perfect quick and athletic PF, the spot we continuusly try to force Crash into.
Shved is tall combo guard, who can be a slasher, a playmaker, or even a sharpshooter when needed. He is everything we hoped MarShon to become.
Obviously Mozgov would be the most easy to get. He is not used on his current team. We might be able to get him for Mirza Teletovic.
Kirilenko + Shved, are much more expensive, but we have some assets. We obviously need Humphries here, for salary matching. We have to send Brooks, maybe some young guys or rights to our eurostash, and at least 2, or maybe 3 first round picks.
I know some of you would be reluctant to deal the 1st round picks, but we hope to be a strong playoff team, so our picks will be late first round picks, and we can buy one of those for 3 mill cash any time.
Here is the result:
Lopez / Mozgov
Blatche / Evans
Crash / AK47
JJ / Shved
D-Will / CJ
Obviously Kirilenko would play a lot of PF. and Blatche could still have some time at C.
Shved can also play the point, when CJ is useless.
What do you guys think?
