Hickson, Ridnour, Mozgov and the evaluation year.

Assuming we don't get Hibbert (almost a certainty imo) I think we should go after these three players to round out our team and see what we have. With the addition of three promising rookies, I think the most important thing we can do this season is give them minutes. The Blazers aren't in competition for a title anymore and wins are no longer the highest priority. We have our PG of the future( fingers crossed), we have a potential center of the future, and we have two potentially dynamic shooting guards( Williams, Barton). If we sure up our roster with these three players we will have solid depth behind all of our positions of question and a great backup PF. None of these players will command big dollars and all will contribute. I actually think we would be a competetive team, but most importantly we could give all of our new assets big minutes. This would then become an evaluation year. If they all pan out, we have a starting unit that will be competitive for the next decade. If a few fail, we know what positions to seek out in the years to come. there is no reason to go after any big name player when we don't know about the players we have. Bringing in an OJ mayo, or steve nash would only retard our ability to evaluate the talent we have. Sure if you can get a D-will, or Dwight Howard you go for it, but bringing in second tier stars only makes us a second tier team. Get these players to plug some holes and let the young guys play. They might surprise all of us.
