The point is, I doubt Denver has any use for a starting front court of Faried, Bargs, and Koufos (or McGee). Who is going to guard the opposing SF on the bulk of possessions?
I completely understand what you're saying and you have valid points. At the same time Denver has a lot of depth at the 2 and 3 spots and not as much at the 4 and 5. I believe Farried is quick enough to guard an opposing 3 in the West,except for Durant & Gay. Who knows,maybe Bargnani
goes to another team in a 3 team trade.
