DJ will be on an NBA roster next year. He was a backup PG on a contending team, and I'm sure several teams noticed. Seems like a good kid and a professional. AJ price had a good year on Washington last season. PG's seem to struggle here. I hope CJ is the exception....
If turner beats out hill and mahinmi in camp then fine, but odds of that happening are slim.
Absolute worst case, we can use stretch provision on Green next year. No sense wasting a valuable asset just to dump him.
If Green + pick can get back a rotation big though, I think we'd have to consider it.
I don't want to give up Hill or a pick but we need to move Green I hate it. The stretch provision would help a little.
I still see Hill as an unproven late first round pick. His odds of being in the rotation with more then 10 minutes this season are less then his odds of being in the nba 5 years from now. I have no gripes about Hill or picking him where we did, I just don't buy into the hype on a player taken that late until they at least prove themselves for a season or 2. A few articles and a summer league and some have him playing real minutes in the rotation and guarding Lebron. Next years pick should be a little better then Hill based off quality of the draft but it should still be a late first round pick. The value of giving the team a real chance to keep the core together should outweigh the value of Ian, Green, Copeland or a late first round pick.
Back to the theme of this thread.
I still think we need a true pf who can guard post players to replace Tyler on the bench and I don't trust Plumlee yet. We can afford a 1 year deal for Blair and should at least make the attempt.
Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.
Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.
Brand would be nice.
My offseason FA wishlist:
Sergio Rodriguez (backup pg)
Thomas Robinson (backup pf)
Andray Blatche (starting pf - replacing West)
Corey Brewer (starting sg/sf - interchangeable w/ PG)
No way would I want to move Solo just to dump GG.
As said above, at some point Plum needs to play. He may fail, but you cant just let him rot on the bench.
Solo seems like a good glue guy who can make others around him better. You can never have enough of those guys on your bench.
Id want a heck of a backup big to move Solo. And I dont think Solo/GG would net that kind of player
Stop quoting people I have on ignore!
Sorry... Poor choice of words... It was intended more as a joke w the punch line "in Europe"... And it receives a FAIL...
I don't see him as being any more egotistical than any other professional athlete... Carry on...
Nothing in life worth having comes easy.
DJ can definitely get a backup job. The Lakers, the Warriors, Nets, Bulls, etc could use an experienced, inexpensive backup who doesn't turn the ball over. What's helping his case is that he's not going to command a lot of money, so he's likely to have multiple options.
Anybody wanna go for Tinsley...
Nah, just joking.
Turner and Young are THE FUTURE!
