Especially after the KT trade, I know that everyone (including me) is rather perturbed by the lack of an answer to Tim Duncan and some of the other dominant post players.
I hear various names bandied about, but I haven't seen Scot Pollard discussed. Call me crazy, but:
- vet minimum, so very little financial exposure
- decent defender, and certainly not afraid to be aggressive (but I would argue that he's not 'dirty')
I know he comes with downsides (injury-prone, potential attitude issues), but given the rather desperate need - wouldn't he be worth the almost-no-risk? If he doesn't work out, he cost nothing, and he takes up bench space like all the others.
Just a thought.
