VA...this is a quote from where? Am I missing something, some part of a thread or what?

Anyone know anything about John Edwards? He definitely has the size, but is he any good or just another stiff?

Isn't he running on the Democratic ticket for Vice-
President? :laugh:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but before this, we had 14 people signed, which means this would bring us to 16, 1 too many. Who's getting cut?

Also, any info on Edwards would be nice. I at least like his body size.

These are certainly non-guaranteed, training camp contracts.

I doubt either player makes the team (although I like the idea of Wright *could* do) or has a material impact on the salary cap/ luxury tax.

Yeah, Hicks...That makes 16.

I like Rashad... mostly though, I'm just glad that we brought in more people to camp...

I'm sure these contracts are probably really low and are not guaranteed.

I agree...I hate this time of year. When the really exciting news is the signing of a 2nd rounder.

Before I clicked on, I was thinking the exact same thing, Hicks.

I look for Polly to go to Atlanta soon for a draft pick.

C - Foster/Harrison/Edwards
PF - O'Neal/Croshere
SF - Artest/Bender/JJones
SG - Miller/Jackson/FJones
PG - Tinsley/Johnson/Gill/Wright

That will likely be our line-up heading into the season.

Oh yeah, he was GREAT in the summer league.

Agreed.

Wright is nice in theory, but considering he played worse than Siggy during the summer, I don't see much point. And a 7-footer who doesn't get drafted is b..a..d bad. Unless he's Brad Miller, of course. :p

I'd just as soon leave the 15th spot open. If the necessity rises we can always sign someone during the season.

I don't think both of these guys will make our team, unless the Pollard to atlanta trade goes down. I think we will cut one, and Edwards has the advantage considering our lack of depth in the frontcourt. If we keep Rashad over Edwards, I think that will mean he proved he was considerably better than Edwards. That, or Edwards just sucks.
