    Thabo looked so washed on O last year— still good defensively tho

    Sure, his 190lb frail frame would make Kawhi think twice before posting up.

    Everyone would, but Bojan is a very underrated defender. He used to be considered below average on defense before he faced Lebron in the playoffs and showed that he can step up his D when necessary. I actually like our depth when it comes to throwing multiple bodies at PG and Kawhi. We have Ingles, Bojan, Oneal, Green and who knows, maybe one our rookies will step up at some point this season.

    How soon you forget how Ingles owned pushoff p. Clippers look like a good team but they aren’t terrifying.

    Injuries have killed Thabo lately. If Thabo can stay healthy, then I would take him in a heartbeat. He is a defensive specialist that you can put on Kawhi or PG in the playoffs. I'm not worried about his offense because we have plenty of guys that can score, but to have a defensive stopper like that in the postseason would be huge. Of course, I'm not saying he will shut down either of them because that's impossible, but he can definitely slow them down.

    How good of a defender is Vinsanity at the 3 and the 4?

    Probably confirms we need to for sure doing something now, not just one move a few more.

    Who is this Dante person you people keep talking about? Which team does he currently play for? When do we sign/trade for him? What you’re describing sounds like a really good player but I don’t ever remember seeing him play.

    Jerebko or the Artist formerly known as Luol Deng might make a lot of sense. With the latter, it’s simply, “You have nine months to get into the best shape and health you possibly can, with a lot of DNP’s.” And these are the types of guys who will take the VM, sit, not bitch, be a good presence, and quite possibly, step up when we need them imo.

    I could see Jerebko being scrappy as **** on Kawhi.

    Does Deng have any defensive gas left?
