Poll: Asik vs R. Anderson

Now that Howard is our starting center for at least the next 3 years what do we do with Asik?

Option 1: Keep him and roll the dice with our current power fowards

There is a lot to like with this option. You will have 48 minutes of elite rebounding and top 5 defense. Our biggest weakness last year was when Omer was resting our defense went down the drain. Option 1 takes care of that problem. As far as our current power forwards are concerned, well Terrence Jones looks like he can contribute on both ends of the floor. D-Mo can also be that stretch 4 that can space the floor and create room for Howard and Harden.

My line up with this roster:

Beverly / Lin

Harden / Brewer?

Parsons / Garcia / Casspi

Jones / Dmo / Smith

Howard / Asik

Option 2: Trade Asik for Ryan Anderson

This makes the starting rotation more balanced but the drop off at the center position will be a lot greater no matter who you can get via FA, with-in or trade. I have been saying since last week that if we get Howard I'm sure Camby would want to come here and play for vet min. Chris Anderson is also available but who knows how much he wants. Is the trade off worth it? Can we trust Lin / Beverly / and Parsons to be good enough 3 pts shooters to spread the floor enough for Harden and Howard? Anderson has been almost a 39% shooter from the arc, there is now doubt he will get open looks and make teams pay for it.

My line up with this roster:

Beverly / Lin

Harden / Brewer?

Parsons / Garcia

R. Anderson / T. Jones

Howard / Camby

Conclusion:

Now that I put it in writing I think Anderson makes the team better. At first I though Asik would be a better value but I cam now thinking of how many open looks Anderson will get from 3. Also, he rebounds well for his role as a 3 point shooter. Anderson has almost the same contract as Asik but with one more year on it. He has also played with Howard in Orlando, not sure if thats a good thing or not.
