    I have no problem with that since Humphries:

    2 ) He can play both the PF and C position
    I agree with your other points but not sure about this. Hump is about the same size as Hans, and not particularly strong. According to 82games.com, he barely played at C for the Nets last year.

    If you want a guy who can play C, Hayes is your man. Yeah he's smaller than either Hump or Hans, but somehow he manages.

    I don't need a Big Man to play huge minutes at the Backup Center spot....I only need a PF/C ( like Humphries ) to play about 6 mpg as the Center behind Hibbert and next to Hansbrough.

    The way that I look at the breakdown of Frontcourt Minutes:

    PF rotation:
    1 ) Starting ??? PF/C - 22-24 mpg ( as a PF next to Hibbert )
    2 ) Hansbrough 24-26 mpg ( as the PF next to Hibbert / Humphries / Backup Center - Foster? )

    Center rotation:
    1 ) Starting C - Hibbert - 28-30 mpg
    2 ) Backup Center - Foster??? - 14-16 mpg
    3 ) PF/C - 6 mpg ( as a backup Center next to Hansbrough )

    My preference is Foster to be that Backup Center to play next to or ahead of the PF/C...but if not..then whoever is available for $2-3 mil a year. Getting a PF that can play SOME backup minutes at the Center spot gives you flexibility.

    Another thing to consider is that if Milsap or West can play some Backup SF minutes...which is possible given our SG/SF rotation....then that would work as well.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.
