Re: Should anyone on this team be off limits?
No, they were honest and stupid mistakes. Sorry for that.

2. If we ran a 6'7 MKG at the 4 we would have a lot more problems than we already are having.
Yes he's a bit under sized for a PF, but he's good enough defensively, has a 7ft wing span and decent enough size to make a crack at it. Though I think this is not a likely scenario.
He's played there before for us. My point originally is that if we draft McLemore or sign Monta Ellis for SG, then the only way we could keep Hendo is to perhaps shift him because he's likely to not accept a 6th man position on the bench. I would rather him depart than play SF, but at a stretch if we really want to keep him and draft McLemore, then it's an option to keep some experience on the court.
3. Hendo is a 6'4 SG and is already short for the SG position, what makes you think he can start at SF?
That's a lot shorter than I thought it would be. My post above wasn't overally clear. But to clarify:
4. If we got Monta Ellis, we would have the shortest lineup ever (from what you're going by) as: 6'1, 6'3, 6'4, 6'7, 6'9
- if we went for Kemba and Ellis is the back court I'd have no issues with them as guards, but I wouldn't keep Hendo.
- If we really wanted to keep Hendo in the scenario we draft McLemore for SG, then Hendo could play stints at SF since he's done it before.
- In terms of the 2014 draft we'll go for Wiggins if we're in a position to. That chucks MKG out of the picture as a starting SF. He's not good enough to be a 6th man. So it's either bench or move to PF where his defensive abilities should be good enough to start.
All in all I wouldn't want a team that small. I think we could get away with a smaller line up since it has had some success recently. But if pushed I'd rather see us get more size. If healthy I'd take Noel over Biz, but at PF Noel could do a job too. So if we did go for something like this:
6'1 ( Walker ), 6'4 (Hendo), 6'7 ( MKG ), 6'10 (Noel), 6'9 ( Biz ).
Then that could be a competitive line up. Then if we land Wiggins we can either stick him in and bench/trade MKG, or shift him to PF and Noel to C. Overall I'm not sure what scenario will happen, but while we have beeb rebuilding we have gone with small line ups and with the right players it can work (ie Heat, not suggesting we aee anywhere near that level).
Fair point, but Ellis does give us a go to scoring option.
5. We should stay away from a Monta Ellis, he will make it hard for Kemba to do his job at PG. We can find better FA's then him, all he does is play for stats.
