I'm not talking about later down the line -- even though that's a matter of concern for another time and place -- but rather the here and now.
Yet, since the month of April is nearly upon us, there aren't many ways to plug this proverbial leak in preperation for the upcoming postseason. Heck, there's only one seemingly viable solution. Alas, it's certainly not diminutive waterbug Patty Mills or turnover prone rookie Armon Johnson. Nor is it playing Brandon Roy or Rudy Fernandez out of position, either.
Nope, the answer is a man who's the 4th pick in the 1997 NBA Draft, an owner of a championship ring from his time San Antonio, an ex-Blazer, a former Sonic during Nate McMillan's time as coach, and currently mentoring youngsters in the D-League as starting point guard for the Texas Legends.
Who's that y'all may ask? It's simple, really: Antonio Daniels.
At 36, Daniels still produces at a solid clip -- even if it's in the D-League -- and, more than any readily available point guard, should receive a 10-day contract to fill this team's open roster spot. Behind Andre Miller, the steady, controlled hand of Daniels -- whose best qualities include his superb assist-to-turnover ratio, ability to draw fouls, and surefire accuracy from the free-throw line -- is the right man for the job.
