The Center Position

Lots of talk about PG's today but there's the still the question nobody wants to think about (myself included): What if Oden is never healthy?

With Camby's expiring contract and the uncertainty of the new CBA, it would be nice if this were addressed as well.

What options do people see for improving the center position long term?

I don't think Nene, Horford or Gasol are plausible. The best one I've thought of is Al Jefferson. With the lackluster season the Jazz had and if they draft Kanter its possible he becomes tradable. Something like Camby, Batum and a future first rounder could be conceivable (although Utah might just not trade with us period).

Obviously not ideal, but I will say I think its important we get a center with enough of an offensive game to actually be guarded by the opposing teams center. I thought it really hurt us in the Dallas series when nobody had to guard Camby and both Chandler and Nowitzki could focus on Aldridge. As much as I love LA, he's no Duncan or Nowitzki and while he can dominate almost any other PF, he's struggles against many centers. That's why I'm not all that excited about FAs like Chandler or Dalembert. Plus, it would allow Oden to play a Bynum like role at ~20min/g if he's healthy since both Al and LA could play with Oden.

But what are other people thinking?
