He had a down year last season, but he could be the second scorer that we need.

Not going to happen. He wants to much money and is not that good.

Not to mention that we really have several other pressing needs beyond another small forward.

I wouldn't be excited about it. We'd have to do it as a S&T with San Antonio. I guess if we could get Hill in the process and shed Murphy at the same time I'd be mildly interested. Ultimately, I don't think Jefferson is the kind of 2nd scorer we need right now.

Another wing, that is exactly what we need.

I still dont understand why he opted out. Hes not going to make anywhere close to the kind of money he would have made this season

There's always room for one more.

Maybe he wants to go back to NJ/NY area. He says he is looking at them for possible destinations. Maybe San Antonio isn't a big enought city for him.

YES! Let's do it! Give the farm. This guy is the type of player we need to get us over the promised land! While we're at it, pair him with Zach Randolph and give him a max contract, too!

I think I remember reading that he wants a multi-year deal before the new CBA.

Good luck!

Oh I feel he'll get another contract... closer to the MLE than what he was making. I'll bet the Spurs FO threw a party when they found out he had opted out. His thinking was extremely flawed making that decision, extremely flawed. He was playing for a contending team with Duncan and Parker, and chooses to opt out. He had a PG to feed him just like Kidd did at NJ, and couldn't get his game together. Good luck Mr. Jefferson finding your next team who you think will pay you 10-11 mil a year.

If the Pacers were to add another wing to the roster, that would settle it. The Pacers would turn into a Buffalo Wild Wings franchise and threaten the CIB with moving to Buffalo, NY.

To start, you're not thinking beyond 1 year. His job is to make sure he gets the biggest total dollar amount he can over his career. Not just 1 season.

Secondly, did you honestly make it even begin to sound like Tony Parker is anywhere near the passer Jason Kidd is? That's a tremendously bad comparison. I think our lack of a PG here in Pacerland is effecting people's judgment.

Ist I read earlier in the week Jefferson's reasoning for opting out, so I know his reasoning is to get a multi-year contract. He feels he can make up that lost 15 mil in a long contract. I disagree. He would have gotten 1 anyway after next year w/o giving up 15 mil.

2nd No Parker isn't the passer Kidd is, but he isn't chopped liver either. If he can't dispute the ball and make other players better, why are so many wanting him? Why is he an Allstar? My point was Jefferson should have taken more advantage of having an Allstar PG in Parker. If he had, maybe he would have been more successful, and wouldn't have opted out.

It should be obvious jefferson opted out for the same reason Pierce and Dirk did. To ge the long term deal now before the new rule make that money unavailable. Considering what players that have not accomplished what he has are getting, he just may get a pretty good offer after James and Wade find homes.
