You already had several big men in your rotation. What do you feel Robin Lopez adds? Jon Horst: A true 5 (center). We felt like Ersan (Ilyasova) is versatile and a really good player and has great moments for us. D.J. (Wilson) is growing again and is versatile. Giannis can slide down and play 5. Obviously, more of a 4, 3, 2, 1 than he is a 5. I think, for us, to have a true 5 – none of those guys are true 5s – and to have a true 5 on our roster the way that we play defensively to go from Brook to Robin on a consistent basis night in and night out defensively, we think is going to be a monster. We were the best defense in the league last year. We think we can be even better this year having him with the impact he can have protecting the rim and helping our rebounding.
