So we're getting Iguodala but using him as a 4th option, taking away his big game capability. Iggy has the ball in his hands quite a bit in Phili. Playing off the ball defering to three other guys would give him memories of being a rookie.

He's as good as Turk, most would say better, at scoring and creating.

It would be like having a offensive surplus. We would be better off getting a athletic defender at the three spot.

Iggy, Bosh, Bargnani. That's three guys capable of scoring 30+, why have another one who can't defend.

Balance is key in the NBA.
