Sign Leon Powe.

via Kevin Pelton

Leon Powe is a risk of a different kind, as the torn ACL he suffered in last year's postseason will cost him at least the start of the 2009-10 campaign and could render him ineffective until the following season. Nonetheless, a non-contending team would be wise to sign Powe to a cheap two- or three-year deal with heavy incentives and small guarantees, if possible. When healthy, Powe has been highly productive; on a per-minute basis, he belonged with Lee and Millsap last season. He's an extraordinarily efficient offensive player who can create for himself, who rebounds and who is more than passable defensively.

What's the risk here? I don't know exactly how much it would cost to sign Powe, but it wouldn't be much. Yes, I know it's not exactly sexy to sign yet another injury-rehabbing player with high potential. When healthy, however, he's basically everything I wanted out of Gortat except better and cheaper. The question if you're Presti: how much do you offer?
