Leave the roster spot open
Everybody saying a post scorer is our biggest need is right on the money. Being able to dump the ball to someone in the post and having them create offense brings balance to the court, and in turn will open up the perimeter game for our guards. A solid post player can manufacture points from the block or off free throws when a game gets tight and the outside shots aren't falling. And if he's good enough to garner an occasional double team, then you get open 3s or wider lanes for drives to the basket.
Indiana transformed into a serious playoff contender once they signed David West, combined with Hibbert's continued post development. Philly was just your basic run of the mill team in the East until they signed a solid post up guy in Brand, and they've since crossed the line into a regular playoff team. The Hawks had talent, but could never turn the corner until they drafted Horford.
Now, there's really no post scorer available, unless we wanna go the Eddy Curry route. May not be such a bad thing to look into, even though he's been a complete failure save for a season or two. But Dunlap could run his ass into shape (or out of town) so it could be a worthy gamble
