yeah, a competetive nba team can make due with 3 bigs.

jeez, think about it people, these are the combinations:

FA center/bargs pf
fa center/davis pf
fa center/amir pf
bargs center/davis pf
bargs center/amir pf
davis center/amir pf

more than enough minutes to go around with foul troubles, bad nights, injuries etc, you dont go into an nba season with only 3 bigs on roster. thats just fucking stupid. And alabi doesnt fucking count.
If you would think more than one year ahead you'd realize that by signing a FA center we'd have 5 bigs under contract that need minutes in 2012-13 when Val arrives.

Unless we get a guy with a one year contract. How many quality NBA players would accept a one year contract from a rebuilding team, do you suppose?

Val will definitely create a logjam if a FA center is signed. If a guy is moved in a S&T, however, Alabi (maybe even Dorsey and Ajinca) would be available to eat up any left over minutes until Val arrives.
