***** ain't free. Gotta give a player of impact to get one.
On the bold part, no and yes. Yes, he's an outstanding defensively but he is not one of the best two-way Dmen in the league. He has a way to go offensively. That's where, to me, his improvement needs to in order to become a true #1 in the league.

Having said all that, I wouldn't be in favor of a deal for him that included Skinner of Faulk.
