J.J. Hickson?

He will become a free agent this summer and I truly believe he could become our pf of the future with the skillet he has now(he still has a good amount of potential). He averaged a double double playing less than 30 mins this year. His per 36 #s were 16 points and 13 rebounds...that's impressive. I feel like he would be even better here in dc with a pg like John. He is extremely strong and athletic and would be great on the break with wall. He is not a lockdown defender but is an emphatic shot blocker who brings the intensity and energy we can't get enough of. Even though he isn't a lockdown defender, he is a good perimeter defender for his position and can hold his own in the post, relying on his strength and athleticism. Offensively he can consistently knock down mid range js if the dribble and the catch, is an excellent finisher because of his strength and atleticism(such a big part of his game if you havnt noticed the pattern) and can score off putbacks around the rim. Would be great for screen and rolls with John. Additionally he is still young at 24 and has plenty of room to grow. With an improved offensive arsenal, continually improving D, and if he keeps rebounding I believe he could be an all star in a couple of years. Fortunately, he is undervalued so we could probably get him for about 4-6 mil a year. However this means we would have to rid of nene and probabaly vesely(which I'm absolutely fine with, but the hard part is finding a team that's willing to lose cap space for those two players. Consequentially we'd probably have to take some weak players with overvalued salaries. We also won't be able to resign Webster, as much as I like him this is the better move for the team. We could also start Trevor ariza who is being paid way to much to come off the bench. This would give us a starting 5 of wall, beal,ariza,hickson, and okafor. That's a good defensive 5 and and better offensive than last year. I really like hickson for this team as he is young but also has 5 seasons of experience under his belt. Please explain how you feel about this idea and/or if you have any better or more cost efficient strategies.
