Keeping the core together

If we assume for the moment that we will be keeping the core together and trying to grow with this group, it would seem obvious that we need to acquire a FA. This has always been a scary time for Toronto fans in the past and we sure hope it isn't a repeat of previous outcomes.

I also think we need to acquire valuable assets with our 20th pick and hopefully with our 37th as well, but that has been discussed in detail. What has been less a subject of speculation has been the type of FA moves Masai could/should consider.

I am thinking along the lines of what David West has meant to the Pacers but probably at a different position, but same idea. Who do we feel are some of the candidates available to fill a void for this team?

One of and in no particular order:

Ariza, Turner, Gortat, Bosh, Deng, Pau, VC, Hawes, Blair

on the ultra cheap insurance move, Ivan Johnson who used to play for the Hawks. I'd sign him to a league minimum contract. Love his energy and grit.

So, what do you think?
