    I think $6-7M per-year for Courtney Lee would be a massive overpay. My guess is he'll get a little more than what we gave Dahntay Jones -- probably $3.5-4M per-year.
    You think so? My impression of Lee was that he was Brandon Rush, only more consistent and no off court concerns. I think that guy is worth the MLE at least. I don't want to pay him 7 per, but I thought I heard he was looking for like 7-8, so I figured that wasn't going to happen but that he'd still get a good chunk.

    This is what I've been saying since Shaw became a candidate for Coaching in Orlando.....anyone joining Orlando will be taking on a huge mess of a FO and Roster that is CLEARLY rebuilding around Brook Frakkin Lopez and Big Baby.
    He will help rebuild the team and be fired as soon as they are about ready to win. Just like JOB........

    Lou Williams got the MLE C.Lee should get less than Lou, so MLE should be his max at most.
    Lou also got less than probably most/all people would have expected, so I wouldn't let that be your standard or else you're probably going to be frustrated.

    That sounds about right in that it sounds about as overpaid as DeAndre Jordan.

    Good information, but I'm focused on Green, since Mayo is being recruited by Phoenix and Dallas, and Lee is looking at Boston. If Brooklyn only has $1.2m to give to Green, I think offering him a $2.5m contract would be enough to entice him. He's already said that he'd take less to stay with the Nets, but BKN only has $1.2m to sign several more players at minimum. Green could easily slip to us, but I won't be surprised (just majorly disappointed) if we end up passing on him like we did Perry Jones.
    I keep forgetting about Carl Landry. It does seem a little weird we haven't heard a thing about him yet. I'd love to replace Tyler with him.

    That's a good move for Dallas and an ideal opportunity for Kaman. If Haywood underwhelms like he did last season, I could see Kaman starting eventually or at least pushing Haywood to keep his gig.

    Although my preference is to get a PF/C Frontcourt Player to play next to West AND Hibbert....I'd consider taking him over Hansbrough....he has a way better and consistent offensive game than Hansbrough.

    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.

    If Kaman finalizes a deal with Dallas Wed. wouldn't that take Dallas out of the Brand sweepstakes. They would have to do a lot of work right now in order to find space to bid, let alone signing Kaman to more then 10mil per year.
    hmmm, I really don't have the will to crunch #'s right now, but I really won't to know. I'm having a hard enough time typing correctly as it is! Thank god for backspace.

    Should say "replacement All Star." Always bugs me when a guy makes the ASG one time and for the rest of his life he's always called All Star.

    I'm a Humphries fan. Dude rebounds and puts the biscuit in the basket. I think he'd be a very nice get for the Pacers. And, again, it hastens the departure of one Tyler Hansbrough. Keeps West fresher. Gives you the option to have 2 PF out there at the same time. I see no downside to paying him. Its not like he's asking for a crazy contract.


    I'm on board. Tell Walsh to get it done.

    Roy's an All Star right now. He doesn't make it next year he should no longer be referred to as one.

    It won't matter if they amnesty Brandon Haywood.....he's owed $8+ mil each year.

    Roy might not be an all star if it wasn't for Al Horford going down and really Tyson Chandler deserved the nod as well. I feel Roy was chosen as a reward for the Pacers whole team.


    Really though being an all star is overrated playing at an all star level is not though. and some guys who didnt make it last year were playing at an all-star level as well so just going by who makes the game isnt quite fair IMO.

    I am interested to see what Kaman makes. This will tell me if Hibbert is overpayed. In a world where Olmer Asik gets over 8 mil I am guessing no.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    New Orleans pretty much gave Jack away in a salary dump. We could've taken him on, let Hill walk, and saved $2-3M (Jack makes $5.4M next season). I don't know who's better, I'd consider them close to equal, although I do think Jack is more of a legitimate point guard. He is three years older, though, and will be 29 when next season begins.
    I'm a fan of Jack, but to me Hill is better.

    Mavericks to sign free agent center Chris Kaman to a one-year deal paying $8 million, source tells Yahoo! Sports.

    I was hoping we'd get Kaman for this, as he would provide some much-needed inside scoring off the bench. I think Dallas still will find a way to bid on Brand, so methinks we'll need to bid more than a "bargain price."

    I'm not enticed by Mayo at $8M or Lee for $6M, so get a back-up SF cheap (Green? Delfino?) and again wait til mid-season to trade for/pick up some instant offense.
