resign ariza and gortat or get melo either way we need 1 big and 1 small for bench depth

Weather we retain Gortat and Ariza or we get Melo we need to add bench help. There are not a lot of good centers on the market so I think if we lose Gortat the position would need to be filled by committee.

We are not going to outbid anyone on a restricted free agent so that eliminates Patrick Patterson and Mike Scott. Our options are Jason Smith, Chris Kaman, Jermaine O'Neal and Drew Gooden. Let's sign them to around the minimum. I think Drew Gooden would definitely want to come back so I say offer Smith, Kaman and O'Neal the vet minimum and the first one to take it is on the team.

Now as for a bench guard we have Steve Blake, DJ Augustin, Jordan Farmar, Patty Mills, Ramon Sessions and Shaun Livingston. I would like to keep Andre Miller but if we could get 1 of these 6, Miller would be our 3rd point guard or we could buy him out if need be. Offer the vet min to all 6 and see who signs.

Personally I want to keep Ariza and Gortat and add cheap vets that strengthen our bench. Then in 2016 bring KD home!!!

A roster with

1) Sign Melo...enough money to sign Augustin and Jason Smith. Melo here till 2018

Wall/Augustin/Miller

Beal/Webster/GRJR

Melo/Porter/vet min
