adding a fa centre gives us 4 quality bigs this year, and then all we have to do is make a determination of which of them we want to get rid of when jv is ready to play consistent minutes in the nba. if jv takes another year to develop after next, this decision doesn't have to be made until the 2013-14 season. maybe amir goes, maybe Bargs goes, maybe whoever we get as a free agent goes. this is a good problem to have.

there is no big man redundancy on a team that only has 3 active bigs and one of them is andrea bargnani.
