    LOL I knew he had to have huge red flags. He is just way to good to not be on a roster without them. I would still add him to the roster tomorrow very low risk and great reward. He seemed like a gamer in college it may just be a case of competitiveness he is 25 if he gets his act together he should be a perinatal 6th man of the year type player if stops the BS.

    But I literally cant think of a better target in trade or what not. He is free too pretty funny if you ask me that we need a scorer who can great his own shot and shots for others, there is one for us and we dont have to give up a pick or anything lol. CDR is better than Marshon Brooks IMO by a wide margin and anyone who we could possibly trade for. His work ethic has never been questioned and he plays hard he rebounds and plays defense, I just don't get it. If JR Smith's cancer personality can make a turn around so can CDR.

    I haven't watched him play a second since he was Milwaukee, but I'd be fine with picking him up. If only because West would stare a hole through the back of his brain if he tried any of that stuff here.

    Ya JOB changed our culture

    In all seriousness we have a strong locker room now compared to the post brawl days. Main reason I believe JR Smith is now under control is Jason Kidd watch how he controls him during the game and calms him. JKidd is so underpaid his intangibles and leadership to that Knick team is easily worth 10m+ a year just what that team needed.

    To me it's like the Lance situation the guy is too talent for us to not give a shot.


    here is his game from the other night got to the line at will and was so under control




    He plays again today at noon.

    I'm on the CDR bandwagon too. I say sign Delonte West too.

    Have to trade players first to free up roster spots.

    Now really free Lance!

    I don't think the Pacers have a big to try to get Lee. Lee can hit shots and that's something the Pacers need.

    I think a backcourt of Lance (pg) and Lee (sg) could be fun.
    Lee makes too much for my liking, maybe Green and Mahinmi for Lee and filler?

    Wow what a terrible trade for the Pacers. I still LOL that you think Ian is over paid it's quite comical.

    and Lee makes too much for your liking LOL what do you want these guys to make food stamps? Cap Space doesn't win you games in all honesty cap space does the Pacers 0 good with how we have our money invested(which I don't agree with how we have it invested but that isn't gonna change so I am over it).

    CDR is better than Lee IMO and add in that CDR will make nothing and cost nothing easy decision between the two.

    Lee is making 5mil a year for the next four years that's more than food stamps and I like Ian but he is overpay.

    No it's not we couldn't of got a better C cheaper. He was a steal when we signed him IMO but he hasn't played that well so currently I would say he is paid just right. I still think his deal ends up a steal he is a really good defender and 7fts like that get paid. 4 16 was really good move IMO by the FO.

    @AlexKennedyNBA: Tim Duncan had 31 points, 18 rebounds, 6 assists, 5 blocks, 2 steals against the Nuggets tonight. How is Duncan doing this at 36 years old?

    Oops.

    Ray would have been awesome for PG, honestly, between learning how to move without the ball, and learning how to guard players who play off the ball..there could have been a lot of mentoring there.

    Maybe Duncan is healthier as compared to last few years. And probably because of how Pop manages his playing time. He's been putting up better numbers this season.

    It will be a sad day when Duncan decides to retire from the NBA.

    Nate Robinson might get waived and Hamilton traded.

    Nate might be a good pickup. Cheap and free.

    Trade Pendergraph + OJ for Rip and Nate?

    Lance can continue to start at sg and play backup point with Nate once Granger is back while Rip would be the backup sg once his foot is ok.

    Can then try and trade Tyler + DJ + 1st for a guy like Derrick Williams or some other upgrade at PF (carl landry would be a dream!).

    I don't really understand the fascination with trading away our draft picks. So many hypothetical trade scenarios posted here include a draft pick. Usually it's to make the deal fair to get to a better player, but sometimes it's used as a rationalization for making a lopsided trade or just because it's an obvious thing we have. Since we don't have a lot of money to go over the tax for better players either via free agency or trade, we need every pick we can get to hope we pull out a gem who can at worst stick on our bench for 3 to 4 years. It's cheap first round talent that too many people seem eager to trade away for slight upgrades.

    I'm not saying in no situation should we trade our picks away, but unless the deal blows you away it's probably worth a whole lot more to hang on to it.

    If we could somehow swing Green and Tyler for Lee and one of their minimum contracts (Collins, Joseph, Wilcox) I think it'd be a decent trade for both sides.

    They were interested in bringing in Green in the offseason (along with Chicago) from what I remember.

    He's productive in spurts, but its misleading and also one of my most disliked players of all time. The last Pacers/Bulls game is a perfect microcosm of what he does. Scores circus shots, brings tons of energy and excitement, tries to get physical with an opponent, eggs on the crowd, cries to the refs, turns the ball over several times or takes terrible shots in crunch time and loses the game. He's a losing player who plays losing basketball. Then is annoying as hell on top of it. I want to increase the basketball IQ, that would lower it.

    The Raptors were 4-17 with Andrea Bargnani.
    The Raptors are 4-2 without Andrea Bargnani.
    Is Andrea Bargnani the NBA LVP?

    Green Monroe scored 35 points (on 22 shots), grabs 10 boards and also gets 2 assists and 2 steals but the Pistons lose to the Raptors.
