Default Colangelo looking to acquire a SF?

Hmmm .... in Doug Smith's blog today he mentions that a little birdy told him (hopefully not the same one that said Jose was going to be an All-Star) that with the lack of afffordable bigs out there, that he might be looking to acquire some much needed rebounding help via the SF position.

Joseph C, Toronto

A: I think if he finds a tough, strong veteran small forward, heíd start for sure, after getting use to the teamís defensive systems and new teammates. But if itís a four or a five, heís not going to replace Bosh or Bargnani in the starting lineup.

Donít discount the idea of finding a three, either; Someone Who Knows thinks thatís where Colangeloís looking right now because thereís a dearth of available bigs with affordable contracts.
