This was a very good acquisition by Colangelo. This team is going to face either the Cavs or Magic in the first round, so they're going to need depth in the front court to match up against those clubs. Brezec showed that he had some game when he was in Charlotte. He's got some offensive game, he can grab a few boards (which is needed) and be a body to spell guys like Humphries and Nesterovic. There was no way Colangelo could acquire a star swingman for Dixon - you can only do much with crap. And this works out perfectly like others have alluded to because Brezecc's contract expires at the end of the season, freeing up money to re-up Calderon.

At the end of the day, I think we'll be facing the Magic in the first round.

The Cavs sold their souls to get back to the finals. They'll be in cap hell for a while.
