Looks like Boozer might be amnestied by the Bulls. Hopefully we can get her for cheap if he's ok with coming off the bench.
I bet the Rockets put in a waiver pickup for Boozer. Good thing that they will need to decide on Parsons first though. ....

What's Hedo Turkeglu's story? Do you think he will sign for vet minimum?

Agent brought up that when Parker was out or even when he doesn't handle the ball, Ginobili and Diaw facilitate quite a bit. Agree and we don't have that luxury because Reddick is not that great of a facilitator to be honest (not on a Ginobili level of ball movement and kick outs when penetrating) but Blake is almost as good of a passer as Diaw and Hawes puts us a little closer to Duncan's ball distribution. We....

Pretty embarrassing for Dudley that even in an NBA where washed-up Caron is getting stupid money, his $4.2 mil a year is so toxic that not even the dumbest and worst teams are willing to put it on their books. ....

The only minimum SF might end up being Wesley Johsnon as so far it doesn't seem like anyone is too interested in him, but that never means anything. A team taking a chance on him won't cry about $3-4M. Pelicans want Aminu back it seems from what their fans are saying, so if that's the case, there's no hope there. The other problem we face is that we can't just add a SF without getting rid of one of our SF's.....

For the vet min we aren't going to get a well rounded player. The best we can hope for is a young-ish player who's being overlooked and has potential to be molded into what we need. Wesley Johnson is 6'7" with a 7'1" wingspan and max athleticism. He's not going to be a knockdown shooter (even though he was 37% from 3 last year) or a shot creator, but he can be a very nice defensive player who can guard positions 2-4....

The only trade that would matter is getting Green. Salmons is really bad now, and Rush can't be pencilled in as a started until you see his level of play now. Raptors start Lowry and DeRozan and have Vasquez off the bench as a SG/SF, so they....

I see a bit of the Thaddeus Young situation in Green. Not very good when they are being forced to play a first option type role, but much better when they are used as a 3rd/4th option type guy. Offensively though, Thad is far superior to Green outside of 3PT shooting, but Thad's defense at SF isn't as sure, I'll have to watch some film, while Green can do this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?safe=active&v=yNog63olbSg ....

Is Casspi really an upgrade over Barnes / Dudley on either end though? It seems like unless we're getting an upgrade or a young defensive guy to develop, adding another below average to average level SF might be too much in terms of how many SG/SF players we have. We have 11 players on the roster (Paul, Farmar, Redick, Crawford, Wilcox, Barnes, Dudley, Bullock, Griffin, Jordan, Hawes). We'll go to a minimum of 13 and there's a max of 14. We have....

Omri Casspi is a slight upgrade over Matt Barnes. If you can get Casspi for the veteran minimum you must do it! Casspi: 12.91 PER last season (had same 12.9 PER in 12-13 season as well) Barnes: 12.05 PER last season (PER was 15.5 in 12-13. Big fall off which explains why he's on the trading block). Dudley: 8.91 PER last season (PER was 14.89 in 12-13.) If you can get Casspi for the veteran's minimum you must do it! Not because....

I think we need a slasher in a big way, With the passing ability of BG and Spencer Hawes when their at the top of the key with the ball they could pick apart a defense if you had a cutter slashing with an outside shooter keeping them honest. Hawes with his height would be an awesome play maker from the top of the key because he can pass over the top set a pick or drive if lane open. ....

Uhhhh, what? Hawes wanted to come here bad. He even said he'd take a pay cut before we were mentioned as interested in him. Doc promptly went after Farmar days before Collison left. What bigs were out there that are black and in the MLE range...Better than Hawes? Why did Doc seem intent on offering Farmar a contract before Collison left? Why didn't he....
