Now that Ainge has opened up 3 spots on the roster after the trades he just completed, he will be looking to acquire players to fill out the roster.
Question is what position on the roster needs depth added to it and what players should Ainge go after ?
Ainge said yesterday he wants to acquire a guard, small forward and another big.
I think due to the questions surrounding the health of Shaq and J.O. Ainge should acquire not just 1 but 2 bigs and then add a wing player to fill out the roster to add more depth behind Pierce and Green.
I personally would like to see the C's acquire Troy Murphy as is rumored as he would be a nice versatile big man who can play the 4 position, spot duty at the 5 position, spread the floor on offense and help on the boards.
But I also think with the loss of Perk and his low post defense and the fact Kstic and Murphy are not great low post defensive centers it would be wise for the C's to also add a strong, physical defense orientated center to the roster.
A center like Marcus Camby, Samuel Dalembert, Joel Przybilla or to a lesser degree Dan Gadzuric would be a nice to have on the bench and help fill the defensive void left by Perk, who could also play spot minutes if needed to help the C's defend power bigs like Howard and Bynum etc.
For a back up wing player I would not mind seeing the C's sign Deshawn Sims from the D league or a veteran veteran such as Sasha Pavolic, Jason Capone.
Others small forwards rumored to be bought out are Rasual Butler, Corey Brewer, Renaldo Balman and old pal Leone Powe who the C's may be looking into acquiring.
Anybody have any thoughts what position ( guard, small forward, power forward or center) the C's need to bolster and any names of players they would like to see signed to fill the final 3 roster spots?
