. There just aren't many back-to-the-basket centers around with his skill set. I'm guessing that if Axel and Wilmore can't contribute much next year, we'll go with our long guys like Mitch, Braun, Kobe, Tray to rebound well and defend on the interior. Won't be much of a low-post presence, but that's okay. The game has changed.
