Not Gortat, Bogut etc.
I think people on this forum sometimes greatly overrate the Spurs' assets. Green has a friendly contract, but no team would send us a top tier center for those two. Kawhi would be the only non Parker piece that would garner a top player. The only top centers in the league I can think of offhand are Noah, Hibbert, Howard, Brook Lopez, healthy Bynum, Anthony Davis (potential). Besides Bynum's horrible reputation and injury history, all of these guys are near-max quality right now. BTW, Tiago seems to be decently durable, unlike Chandler, Bynum, or Bogut
