If there was a surefire stud PF I might agree with you, but there's not. If you're going to be throwing darts at draft picks, you shouldn't throw them at guys who fill holes where you're already 3 players deep.

Bargs may not be a star, but he is a starting quality player, especially if he truly turned any sort of corner with his play at the start of last season. I see no reason he can't learn to be a Dirk level defender (devil's advocate: haven't seen much to prove he can either).

I think this year really screwed our evaluation of him, because we can't really know if the Bargs from the first 13 games can be sustained for a whole season or not. Teased us with what could be.
