Better Low Cost Option: Bismack Biyombo or Roy Hibbert?

Our video Q&A series with Dane Carbaugh digs in to non-superstar options they could sign in free agency this summer to fix the gaping hole in the Portland Trail Blazers' front line.

Last week in our video Q&A session we wondered aloud about whether Hassan Whiteside would be the best choice for the Portland Trail Blazers down low. I then asked the Portland faithful to send me new questions for this week and, lo and behold, guess what was asked once again?

That's right, just a week later it seems fans and Rip City desperately -- and rightly -- want a new center via 2016 NBA free agency to complement Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum in the backcourt.

Specifically, two separate folks wondered whether the Blazers should go the Dollar Store route, opting for Roy Hibbert or Bismack Biyombo instead of shopping for Dwight Howard, Al Horford, or Hassan Whiteside.

I'm not entirely sure these players are Neil Olshey's top choices -- regardless of actual price, where Biyombo is unlikely to be a bargain -- but it's something to explore.

Watch the video above for the full breakdown and if you want to have your question answered next week, comment below or send me a message via Twitter or Facebook.

See you next week!
