    I don't think that's what most have been saying. Free agents, like all things, for most of us come down to price.

    Nene at 14 million? No thanks. Nene at 12 million? Ok, I can maybe buy it. Nene at 10 million? Fo sho.

    Same goes for Gasol for me basically, though I'm a little more inclined to over pay for him.

    Crawford at 10 million? No thanks. Crawford at 8 million? I'm in. Crawford at 6 million? Hooray.
    There goes the 12mil mention again

    I don't think adding a veteran presence like crawford would be a bad thing.

    What is your problem?

    I was making a point about how most of us view this decision. Not about what I actually think we can get Nene for. What makes that so hard for you to understand?

    Obviously, we will not get Nene for 12 million or 10 million, which is why I don't want him.

    Collectively, you guys are impossible. Every player has some fatal flaw that means we can't or shouldn't sign them or trade for them. Terrific.
    Yep we shouldn't sign anybody unless that guy is EJ, Dhoward, CP3 or Dwill......

    You didn't see since86 going crazy on me because I mentioned that one of you guys said 12mil and he thought it was me? just to be clear, Nene is not going to take less than 13mil

    Um, excuse me, but I find problems with all of these.

    EJ gets hurt a lot!

    Howard? DWIGHT Howard? His teeth are too white and creep me out.

    CP3 just looks too wholesome. I'm expecting a Dexter-like history where he's a serial killer that only kills people that kill gators in Louisiana or something.

    DWill has a LOT of tattoos!

    Lots of people have thrown out that 12 million number, no one actually believes we can sign him for that.

    Is not exaggeration, there is a reason why Hicks sounds frustrated, because everybody here is expecting that every player we pick is perfect and has not flaws, for example somebody mentions Nene? and the answer is No, how about Crawford? meh......

    This is such an open ended question. I don't know how to answer it, like I said for me it is all about what it would take to sign them.

    I don't have a problem with Nene, Gasol, David West, or Jamal Crawford at the right price, but probably at least 3 of those guys and maybe all 4 will end up getting contracts that would be too rich for my blood.

    Your takeaway from Jamal is he can create shots just not hit them. I'm kinda floored. I'm not arguing he hits 50% of them, but damn it's clutch self-created jumpshots, I don't think hitting 40% of those is that ridiculous. Hell, look up Kobe's %'s sometime in that regard.
    LOL no doubt!

    How many shots did Crawford miss when he lit kobe and the LAkers arse up for 50 last season

    Jamal stays in great shape
    only 31, not 35
    PROVEN ability to go absolutely freakin nuts when he gets hot
    Seems highly intelligent and well grounded
    and oh, outside of Danny, and not even so much him, who can create off the dribble on this team?

    Pitch him 8M a year and the starting 2 on a very up and coming team with a rabid fan base and great state love of basketball

    No you need to keep him on the bench IMO. That is his best role.

    Bird passed up the trade

    ill pass on Crawford too. I bet he is going to cost to much and he takes a lot of bad shots.

    The problem with this free agent class is that since these are the only players available and they are below average in quality (relative to other free agent classes), it's very likely that teams are going to overpay for most or all of the players that sign early.

    Unfortunately Nene, West, Crawford, Chandler all fall into that category of players likely to sign early as they are the best players available. All of them will likely be overpaid.

    I don't think there's a need for Crawford on this team, but he's perfect for a team that really struggles to score like Charlotte. Right now, we have enough SGs in a PG's body (Collison, Hill).

    I think he's a more potent scorer than Collison and Hill, but he has a bad shot selection (that has improved from worst in the league to satisfactory) and I don't think he offers much that George Hill can't do. That's especially the case when you factor in the differences in cost between the two players.

    Crawford had an amazing playoff run though. I had as much watching him against the Magic as I did any player against any team (up until the Finals).

    Me too, I am more of a bargain shopper. I'd like to see us find someone younger than all these guys.. at least under 29 years old. A 4 year deal for these guys makes them senior citizens in NBA years while they are on contract. It just doesn't seem prudent to dish out a max contract to guys who are going to be winding down sooner than later.

    Yeah I could see your reasoning there

    maybe reassure him he will get at least 30 minutes a night and be on the floor at the end of the fourth quarter

    does anybody know if the Pacers have been mentioned in any CP3 or DHoward rumors? Cause i hear that they are trying to find a way to play together and we have the cap room to get them here. Someone media guy at least needs to get a story out there and Cp3 and Dwight could actually get it in their even if its a little

    Our team has weaknesses, but we were close to squeaking out a series win against one of the best teams in the East. We're already better than we were last season with the addition of Hill, and we have multiple players with a lot of room to grow.

    If we're going to spend a lot, it better be for a markedly better player, not for someone who is likely to be surpassed by someone on our current roster at a much, much lower price.

    For those that suggest that we should go after BOTH JCraw and Milsap....could you breakdown how the minutes will work out for the PG/SG/SF/PF rotation?

    Although both are combo-players…..which gives us some flexibility.....my concern is that it would be very difficult to work out the # of minutes in the rotation unless we reduce at least one or two of the key rotational Players to playing 24 mpg.

    For example, the below rotation would work IF JCraw was ONLY added to the rotation where the key Rotational Players would be playing at least 28 to 30 mpg:

    PG
    - DCollison ( 30 mpg )
    - GHill ( 18 mpg as the backup PG )

    SG
    - JCraw ( 28 mpg )
    - GHill ( 10 mpg as the backup SG )
    - PGeorge ( 10 mpg as the backup SG )

    SF
    - Granger ( 30 mpg )
    - PGeorge ( 18 mpg as the backup SF )


    But if we were to go with Milsap ONLY to the rotation ( assuming that he plays a small # of minutes as a Backup SF ), we could have a rotation like this where the key rotational Players will be playing at least 30 mpg:

    PG
    - DCollison ( 30 mpg )
    - GHill ( 18 mpg as the backup PG )

    SG
    - PGeorge ( 24 mpg as Starting SG )
    - GHill ( 12 mpg as the backup SG )
    - Some combination of Inferno/Lance/BRush ( sharing 12 mpg as a backup SG )

    SF
    - Granger ( 30 mpg )
    - PGeorge ( 6 mpg as the backup SF )
    - Milsap ( 12 mpg as the backup SF )

    PF
    - Milsap ( 18 mpg )
    - Hansbrough ( 30 mpg as the backup PF )


    The problem is that if we were to go with BOTH Milsap and JCraw….unless we cut someone down to 24 minutes and the rest of the key rotational Players to 26 to 28 mpg, then the minutes won't necessarily work out.

    I know that I seem to be obsessed about minutes when it comes to Players and that this may seem very granular in detail when it comes to Players……but this part is important ( at least to me ) only because it makes little sense to add a Starting quality Wing Player or a PF/SF ( such as Milsap ) IF we don't have the minutes to justify bringing them in at a certain cost.
    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.
