    Default Tyronne Lue?

    It would be nice to snatch Lue up and give him a shot.
    DALLAS - The Kings will buy out the contract of Tyronn Lue on Friday, according to the agent for the recently acquired point guard.

    Lue, who was part of the Feb. 16 trade that sent Mike Bibby to Atlanta, will leave the Kings with the expectation and hope of joining a playoff-bound team. Or at the very least, a team without so much competition at his position.
    Lue - who was scheduled to earn $3.5 million this season - is one of three Kings point guards with expiring contracts, along with Beno Udrih and Anthony Johnson.

    He's a lot better than Travis Diener.

    Better than Travis or not, a decent veteran PG sounds pretty good right now.

    1. We have Diener.
    2. We have Owens.
    3. Daniels can also play at Point Guard.
    4. We won't make the Playoffs anyway.
    5. Giving Diener some experience with this team is better than reducing his minutes for someone who won't develop anymore.
    6. Would Lue really make this team better?

    7. That would put us over the luxury tax.

    A few good points, but for whatever reason Owens rarely plays and I would love to see someone better getting the minutes that Daniels is getting at that position.

    sign ira newble.. decent defender. but i will only sign him to minimum contract that we can offer not to go over the luxury tax.

    i just dont think marquis's defense and Danny's defense or maybe Rush "our so called stopper 3 weeks ago" on best players would cut it. ive seen ira newble stop some key players.

    but again, why would management waste money if they think they would not make the play offs.

    I'm guessing that Ira ends up with the Cavs again assuming that they have the space for him.

    BTW.....I really think that Stern should add some condition to trades going forward that players that are traded and subsequently waived cannot resign with their previous team for the rest of that season ( a la the Stackhouse provision that Stern was threatening to place on the Kidd trade ).
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I have to say IMO that Lue is not all that much better than Diener.
