It's very clear now that JT cannot replace RA. It's Time to Structure the Team like the Grizzlies and Pull a Pau on Paul...

The Grizzlies has an identical starting set-up with the C's minus the center and a taller 3.

Scoring options:

1. Gay (SF 6'9") - Pierce (SF 6'7")

2. Z-Bo (PF 6'9") - KG (PF/C 6'11")

3. Conley (PG 6'1") - RR (PG 6'1")

Defensive specialists:

1. Allen (SG 6'4") - AB (SG 6'2")

2. Gay (SF 6'9") - Green???/PP???

But the Grizzlies are more efficient as a team defensively and offensively - even without a legitimate 3-pt threat. Their current roster don't spread the floor, but their points spread are pretty even -

Rebounds
Player MPG FG% 3P% FT% OFF DEF TOT APG SPG BPG TO PF PPG
Gay 36.9 0.41 0.31 0.78 1.3 4.6 6 2.5 1.36 0.74 2.49 2.13 17.3
Z-Bo 35.1 0.48 0.13 0.75 4.3 7.3 11.6 1.4 0.85 0.46 2.05 2.28 16.1
Conley 34.3 0.42 0.37 0.83 0.6 2 2.5 5.9 2.35 0.28 2.52 2 13.3
Gasol 34.2 0.48 0 0.88 2.4 5 7.4 3.5 0.98 1.83 1.73 3.17 13.2
Allen 27.2 0.43 0 0.75 1.4 2.7 4.1 1.2 1.71 0.58 1.05 2.58 8.3

and pour in consistently from their defensive tenacity, hustle plays and reliable 1-2-3 punch scoring options at Gay to Z-Bo to Conley/Gasol.

So what are the C's missing?

Can this Trade Machine suggestion help? and Why or How? - http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bk6efbu

Would this projected depth chart based on the trade machine results above work?

PG - Rondo/Barbosa/Terry

SG - AB/CJ Miles

SF - Green/PP/Casspi

PF - KG/Sully/Anthony Randolph

C - Mozgov/Wilcox
