Trade vs free agent center

Pretty simple question. This is only aimed at filling that huge hole we have at the 5. Are we better off trying to trade for a center or waiting till summer and going after a free agent. For a somewhat useful list of what will be on the market, check out the list on Hoops World. Please note that those guys listed as unrestricted with an * are really not unrestricted. Don't ask me why that is. 

I will be voting for the free agent path. Trade our expiring guys for picks and keep the young guys. Above all maintain as much cap space as we can. Whatever the new CBA ends up looking like, flexability will be valuable. As for the "no one wants to sign with us" argument, some of the best talent on the list are local products. They know this is a good place to play ball. 

Also note this is just about finding a big. If Dork Elvis can swing a deal for Granger or a similar talent I'm down with it.

We have some good young players, I don't want to give up a huge chunk of talent for what is likely going to be available as a FA in a few months.  

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
