Default Kendrick Perkins

I was talking to a friend last night about the Peja deal and the potential cap space it opens up and we both realized that Perkins is a FA.

Now, a lot of teams are banking that with the new CBA they'll be able to cut salary (not guaranteed) so right now Toronto is in a nice position to make a run at him. Even if there are teams out there that have additional space I still think Toronto NEEDS to make a solid run at him.

He'd address everything this team lacks. Interior defense, rebounding, toughness. Add into it, his experience with Boston, playing in the finals and being underrated offensively I'd LOVE for him to be here. If he's healthy, it's a no brainer. If we're committed to building with Andrea then we need to get him. If we overpay then so be it.

Having a front court with :

C: Perkins/Amir
PF: Andrea/Evans (yes, he needs to be resigned to a lesser deal.)

Defensively we'd be solid with that group and offensively as well.
