Watching Lebron take over for stretches in these finals, it's so obvious that we need a good solid starting SF if we're going to have any shot at a ring soon. Be it an old ringchaser like Pierce.. Someone like Granger, Deng, Iggy.. Or one of the huge crop of SF's on the rise right now.. Paul George, Batum, Barnes, Leonard, Jimmy Butler, Parsons, MKG.. & some of the lower tier guys Gallo, Turner, Thad, Ariza. There has to be some way to get 1 of these guys for Pau. I don't even care about the rest of the deal, just swap Pau for the best player on that list that you can get & we should instantly be a better team.
Paul George would obviously be my first choice but that's completely unrealistic.. not that most of the rest aren't
I hope Mitch is going down that list from top to bottom & offering Pau for these guys + throw ins. I think Chi might be willing to part with Butler if we take on Boozer. They aren't going to keep Butler & keep paying Deng. Or the option that allows us to keep Pau, sign PP after he's bought out. I'd still shop Pau though.
