definitely upgrade over najera

I think everyone is overlooking the fact that Louis can play Center too. With Larry's new found love for small ball, if we sign this guy he would be a definite upgrade over Diaw when we do run that set (considering he actually can play a little center and is a workhorse).
I do think this signals Diaw is on the way out. Diaw+Dampier+DJ needs to bring us a starting point guard, a young center, and maybe even a draft pick or two.
He'd be the other end of the PF spectrum that Fabio brought...I mean Walter Herrmann. More scrappy hustle and less ackward running and throwing up 3 pointers.
All he needs is about 100 more tattoos and he could be Birdman in the Eastern Conference.
