Assume the Maloofs decide to pull a switcheroo and move Sacramento to Louisville.
They already have Cousins starting at center/ power forward.
Were I GM, I might look for a bench including a few of the following:
Greg Oden C
Jason Maxiell PF
Lance Stephenson SG
Jeremy Evans PF/C
I might also look to sign/ trade for guys like Rajon Rondo, Courtney Lee, Eric Bledsoe, or others.
There are a ton of those types of players in the NBA-- I'm only saying that, when given a choice, grab the one(s) that might boost ticket sales.
Fwiw, it's the same thought process that Cincinnati's gone through over the course of the past 75 years or so-- the one that brought them, among others, Pete Rose and Barry Larkin.
