That was what I was thinking. He's also 29 years old I beleive, and could be a mature vet for us. He's not a great 3 point shooter, but can knock down the 3 if need be. I'd give him a camp invite.

Your right he's 29 in October, He's available for NBA minimum. I look for some type of big deal after the 22nd. It could open some roster spots, the Pacers are going to match JJ, It appears with the offers Dale Davis is recieving we may not be able to afford him. Several team interested in him.
