Post should help and give them some additional beef, and you can probably sneak Rosburg for 3-4 minutes a game or based on matchups.
They need JW3 to be someone who can be a positive impact guy for 20-25 minutes a game, or they will be really thin in the middle.
Am I completely off base in believing that Post can provide us a great deal of the interior defense that Oriakhi is presently providing us?
And let's not act like Oriakhi is a wealth of low-post moves and refined center play. He's generallly little more than a garbage man down there.
It sure seems to me like Post at the 5 and Criswell at the 4 (and I love Ross at the 3) would be a very good front court. JW3 and Jankovic can continue to develop physically and be used primarily as energy and instant offense off the bench.
