You are possibly right. That's why I was hoping we would use next years first, this years second, package the thirds, fringe players for trades. Say we got Keath, he is 28 before the first bounce? At least with McAsey we could get an extra 8 years out of. Hence was hoping we could some how land him, along with a couple of trade in's. We need ready made players now, but we must make sure we do not ignore the team long term either. That's what usually bites teams on the ass once their 4-5 year window passes, and they drop hard because they had not enough long term quality to take over the short term gap fills/role players.TBH I think we miss anyway. Sammy Power has been vocal about us needing to spend our cap and bring experienced players into the side.
There are some decent tall options who might slide late if we want to go down that path. I suspect we trade two players in at least, a KPD and an outside runner.
Right now Young is the only defensive tall we have that is young (not counting Naughton)
We also lack a Morris type shut down/man on man Medium
