Who's going to be the Center now?

So now that we know Roy Hibbert is going back to the Pacers who do the Blazers go after for the coveted role of Center. Olshey has stated that the plan is to get a center that wont hinder Leonards ability to grow as a player, that would mean to me that a Center who will split time with Leonard half and half or so as far as minutes go. Looking at the Free Agent pool of Centers there arent too many top notch players out there that fit in Portland's role, you have McGee, Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez, Jordan Hill, Jermaine O'Neil, Greg Steimsma. Out of this bunch and considering what Olshey is looking for I think there are a few good choices.

Ranking from best fit to ok fit:

1-Jermaine O'Neil

2-Greg Steimsma

3-Robin Lopez

4Jordan Hill

The other route that has been tossed about is the trade market, well there are a few teams out there that I am sure would be willing to make a trade. The question is what teams are those, what teams have a plethora of centers, and what are we willing to trade for a center.
