Seems like the guy lights us up every time he plays us. I think he'd fit the "bench scorer" role that we're looking for. He can hit some pretty wild shots, but can be a bit of a ball hog at times. What's your opinion on him? Could he be an option for the Pacers?

I wouldn't want to give a pick for him and I doubt Hornets would want anything else. I wouldn't hate him but I may hate the deal to get him here.

He's a worse-at-everything George Hill.

41.5% shooters with no special defensive abilities and that love to chuck it up rather than find teammates or create offensive opportunities for others are a dime a dozen.

I liked him in the draft. I believe it was the Acie Law draft where the Hawks had our pick and took Law. Think he's a decent shooter. Pretty streaky. Not much more though. Would prefer a Redick or Rudy Fernandez, and they're similar, but bring more to the table

Good 3 pt shooter... he's good at draining the 3 ball... he's good from beyond the arch...

Seriously that's all I got, cuz that's about all he does!

BTW, shouldn't the cross-hairs be below the bull's eye for that message?

Disappointissimo.

As an Italian-American, I was hoping he would be better than he has been - a less efficient version of J.J. Redick that shows occasional flashes of brilliance. DSM is correct; George Hill does (almost) everything better. I don't think he's what we need.

I think the point is that he is already aiming higher.

He's a streaky shooter with a low FG% that has no "D". He's slight of build with no strength and a poor rebr. He's not what the Pacers need. PASS!

Maybe they haven't sighted in the scope on the rifle and it shoots lower than you aim. :laugh:

No thanks, he's too soft.

Basically, doesn't play defense, doesn't move the ball well, isn't a great finisher. So, you're getting a guy that shoots a lot. And not really that well, not above average or anything.

As a throw in with Kaman I wouldn't mind :laugh:

This. Beli is a 3 point shooter. He is pretty good at it (39.4% career average) but that's all he can do (other than looking like Stalone).

I know you meant Marco :)

No, The point of it is you have to aim higher in order to hit the bull's eye or you will hit below the bull's eye...LOL!

Wouldn't be bad off the bench.

Didn't him and Granger have some issues in Golden State a couple of years ago?
