bigjmw84 Posted June 18, 2015 Share Posted June 18, 2015 He is not much of a defensive player, but he can finish in the post with a soft touch.He brings rebounding we have been missing (5 off reb per game).He excells at the pick and roll and is an impressive passer. His strengths were put to use and he averaged 17pts 11 reb in OKC's system the last 25+ games. Snyder tried to use him as a stretch 4 in Utah when he is clearly a 5. Kanter is 23 years old and will only improve. While I like Millsap, I cant justify paying him 15m per for the next 4 seasons when he 30 years old and sure to decline before his contract ends. Horford would be able slide to the 4 where be could do more damage offensively. Horford has always just been average with his back against basket. With this change he would get more opportunities from 15-18 ft where he is lighgs out. He also wouldnt have to take a beating physicaly night in and night out at Center allowing him to be more effective down the stretch.We have truly lacked big we could count on to score in the post for ages. A move for Kanter would fix that. Bringing in Edy over to be our rim protecter helps balance out Center depth along with Moose. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
