not sure that wing was our most pressing need. Our biggest failings last year were rebounding and interior defense. Having a guy like Magette actually makes us worse in both areas, as he's a poor defender and rebounds far less than Jamario. Sure, if we could get a quality wing like Smith or Deng, that would be an intersting debate. But magette, wallace or diaw are marginal improvements over moon (magette I would argue is a step back).

I think O'Neal over Bargnani is a FAR bigger upgrade than Wallace over Moon. Not to mention that a franchise center will almost always have a bigger impact vs a franchise wing (not that wallace or magette are even close to being franchise wings ... ).
