But really we'd be getting him to do the things Bargnani doesn't. Provide help defense with his length and athleticism, hit the glass, move the ball. He's a glue guy. If you like what Luol Deng did for Chicago this year, you'll like Marvin. He's obviously a poorer man's version of Deng, but has a similar style of game and glue guy-ness
That would be great trade for the Raps. As small forward with a perimter game could open the floor for Demar, plus he is decent defender. However, Horford and his dad have been complaining that Al should be playing power forward. As per Bargnani, he is a natural power forward, not a center.

I would go to OKC for Ibaka. They already have Perkins signed long-term protecting the paint and grabbing boards. Also they drafted Cole Aldrich last year and Byron Mullens two years ago. Bargnani for Ibaka and Thabo.
