The real problem with Felton


Felton's failure to secure the starting spot as the PGotF becomes a huge problem for the long term development of this team as a championship contender. The team already has big questions at the 5. The upcoming draft and FA provides some decent options at the 5 spot (at least the back-up 5 spot) but now the team will have to solve the 1 and the 5.

Even with Matthews struggles this season, the 2-4 spots seem OK. I don't see Wallace getting any huge contract offers and Batum's production has earned him a matching offer (as long as it isn't over 10 mil.) Between Matthews, Williams, & Smith the team should be able to figure out the 2 and don't forget that Batum can see spot duty there as well. If they can grab Freeland, the 4 hole should be solid for the next several years.

So we are left with a team that has 2 glaring needs. A point (still, after all these years) and a starting 5. The options are slim.

There are few 5s coming up in FA and the ones who will be available will be drastically overpaid. Going after those guys puts the team in a tough spot trying to keep the group of wings and forwards together. The draft doesn't offer a real solution either, there are guys available who have the size, but few are defensive minded rebounders that would fit so well with LA.

As for the point, the draft has some interesting pieces, but no surefire hits, and FA...Brooks might be an answer...but he is not THE answer
