Aldridge is good, but if he's your replacement for Dwight then you messed up pretty badly. He's an injury prone finesse guy when everything is said and done. He's a complimentary piece to a true dominating player.
What about Aldridge and Batum for Howard? Would you take that deal?
IMO Batum is one of the top 6 SFs in the league, and is the type of 3 we need (good defender, good 3pt shooter, is a good playmaker).
Aldridge would fit our system well, he can play the pick and roll / pick and pop game very well, he's good on the post, and he doesn't suck defensively (he's no Howard of course).
I dunno, I think I'd take that deal. Give them MWP or Blake and add Wes Mathews (? spelling) and it would be awesome
EDIT: I feel I need to clarify I'm talking about 2013 Howard, not knowing if he can go back to being as dominant as he was before the back injury, his postgame looking very rudimentary, shooting 50% from the line, and not being the front runner for DPOY.
