For the short term a potential (defensively versatile) starting PF and for the longterm a PG are our biggest 'needs'. As well as an elite shooter for the bench.
We don't need a center (unless we're talking about All Star potential), because with Theis and Timelord we're good enough at that position and a third string center is always easy to be found in free agency. And at the SG/SF position we're good for now and for the future with Tatum, Hayward, Brown, Langford, Smart(?) and Ojeleye.
We tend to agree, but since Timelord is 6'8", I decided to lop Carey and Stewart in the mix as they are a little bigger. All three of those would be listed as PF/C players. Also, my point on PG as a need is for backup and future starter to replace Kemba eventually, that's why I said it was a need.
Timelord doesn't play at a 6'8'' height. With shoes on he plays at 6'10" and with his wingspan he plays much bigger.
When official measurements are done, neither Carey or Stewart will prove to be taller than Williams by height, and even if they are, they won't be by standing reach or standing vertical, which is how basketball is played.
Its tough because R Williams and D Theis do not have pre-draft measurements available. Both are listed at 6'8 240. Ive seen Williams WS at 7'6. Its a total guess but I would assume Theis is at least around a 7'2 WS
