That would be a far better pick-up than Bouwmeester. Half the cap hit, same length of contract, better shot blocker, more physical, Right handed, and plays the right side.

The only knock against him at all would be his age, but considering it would only be for the remainder of the season and next year he'd be as close to perfect as you'd find.

I'm all for making a deal that improves the team, I just don't think trading for Bouwmeester accomplished that.
