Get the offense rolling early in games, and then bring some defensive punch off the bench as needed. Noah can be one of those guys off the bench. I am done seeing Noah and Gasol on the court together though. Play Gasol 28 min/game and Noah 20 min/game.

Trade Taj for a 3 and D wing, preferably one with some size for guarding Lebron James. That guy will be our roadblock for another 5 years it seems. Would love to get Tobias Harris somehow. Maybe Wilson Chandler.

Sign a PF who can bang for rebounds to back up Mirotic. We can't let Tristan Thompson kill us in the playoffs again. There should be low-cost options available, maybe Thomas Robinson.

Draft Tyus Jones as backup PG. Smart as heck player with guts who can contribute right away and shoot the ball a bit.

Try to bring Dunleavy and Moore back.

This is basically how I see things moving forward. I have serious concerns about the viability of moving Noah to C. Everyone seems to forget he is one season removed from DPOY and 1st Team All-NBA. That is not a bench player. Now, if his knee is shot and not going to be markedly improved, then sure, in his diminished state he should be a bench player. But, it can be tough getting former stars to accept their limitations, even as much as Noah seems to be a high character guy. He'd really have to buy in to a new coach that he doesn't have a relationship with (presumably) telling him this was best for the team.
