Przybilla, 31, is drawing interest from several teams, according to Duffy. While Duffy wouldn't reveal those teams, league sources said Miami and the Los Angeles Clippers are among them.

What are you guys taught, is he a good fit. I personally think he is a great backup center that played well when he was in Portland, but to land him will be somewhat difficult since we have the Heat and the Bucks in the Mix. How much would the clips give him, and if we do would we enough money to sign another player that can play the 2 and 3, guys what happens when gomes gets hurt who back him up, Foye?

I like him and think he would be a great fit for our team. I've said so mutliple times, in multiple threads before this one.

I don't think the Heat have any money and I don't think a vet minimum might be enough.

I do love the fit. He's exactly the kind of goons we need. We know first hand based on the dirty fouls he gave Griffin that he's willing to give very hard, dirty fouls.

I can't see Zilla being brought in for any less than 7. Plus, I don't see him being able to get up n' down enough to be effective with this particular group. I know what he can do, and it seems like a good fit on paper, but I don't this is the proper setting for him. Right guy, but kind of a forced fit I.M.O.

If he's healthy he'd be a nice addition- good rebounder and solid defense. $2.5 mil for this season?

CP3

Billups

Butler

Griffin

Jordan

Best bench in the league?

Williams/Bledsoe

Foye

Gomes

Evans/Tompkins/Cook

Vanilla Gorilla

Too sick, I still think we need to sign a player that is a true SG or SF, some one like Micheal Redd would bring leadership to the team and if he is 70% we can go all the way to the finals.

We need a defensive stopper in late game situations where we can do a defense-offense substitutions.

QRoss anyone? Haha

przybilla is a great fit. and he would sign for the 2.5 million we have. he brings in toughness, experience and another bodyguard for blake and cp3. with evans and przybilla, we would have our own version of the bad boys. not as skilled, but as tough.

Why don't we pick up either James Posey or Kelenna Azubuike?? I'd rather have one of them > Ryan Gomes

Because we need a backup Center before we need another SF.

'billa would be a solid backup for DJ and might even be able to start some games.

Plus, its pretty much speculative that he actually would've signed for the vet minimum. I don't think he would've done it. The guy gets hurt all of the time, and he was probably tired of sacrificing his body........so he probably wanted to be PAID.

Pryzbilla will cost way too much money unless he wants to take a vets Min to play here, on top of that he's injured all the god damn time I'd rather dig up the corpse of George Washington to put in at Center.

Clippers need to spark interest in Andrei Kirelinko. Not sure what he wants but he hasn't signed with anyone yet. Wonder if we can maybe get him for 1-2 years on a vets min. Give him a chance to show he can remain healthy and be useful then go somewhere else to sign a final, big contract.

Probably more BS, don't buy into anything unless there's an official report somewhere from a highly credible source. Some guy posting on here that someone who I have 0 clue who he is says were interested in some guy means jack s***

That's like some random radio broadcaster in Tulsa, OK saying that Andre Kirelinko is for sure signing with Minnesota because he thinks he's a good fit there for some odd reason, then a random T-Wolves fan that lives in that area posts on the Minny board that The Gator on Sports Radio in Tulsa says the T-Wolves are going to sign Ak47.

Dont buy into the hype.

Even tho we're interested. that doesn't mean he's (pryzbilla) interested in us. he might go to the bucks before us. we'll see tho. we can hope & pray. Smile

Has been my pick for big man backup for awhile. Would really like that signing.

I still don't understand why we let Fesenko go to GS for 1.07mil. That's basically the vet's minimum. Why let him go, he's the biggest and youngest of the available C's. Unless he wanted to go up there thinking he could beat out Bidrins for the starting job, which is entirely possible....Sucks, he would have been my first choice.

Pryzbilla is a good 2nd option but he's going to cost our mid level of 2.5mil. We lose flexibility with that signing and I still think a backup wing is necessary sooner rather than later. Caron and Billups will miss games this year and we're not going to win too many games with Foye and Gomes starting and playing the 40mins.

Al Thornton or Michael Redd. I'm fine with either of them. AK47 would be a dream come true and that's all it is. He's not attainable with our current financial situation.

that sucks that fesenko went to GSW but they probably could offer him exactly what you were saying dude. He knows we have DJ who he would play behind and he is no where near as good defensively but biedrins is weak, so there is more opportunity to prove himself. Thats too bad tho.

and why not maybe picking up bogans for a one year deal at vet min so we can have an elite level defender at the SG spot to come off the end of the bench and shut down guys like manu who we cant match up physically with chauncey?

Something that makes no sense and always makes goldenstate an irrelevant team is signing KWAME BROWN for a 1 year 7mill contract, and FRENSKO for a 1 year 1.4mill contract can someone tell me why this makes sense?

This is a big man thread but since some of us are talking about wings too....Michael Redd just signed with Phoenix. Another one bites the dust.

Let's bring back one of the OG's::: Al Thornton.

BBIQ is at or around ZERO but bring him over here and he'll more than likely learn a thing or two from the vets and Blake for that matter....Ballhoggery will cease because of the same influences....There were times that Al was our #1 scoring option when he was here! (Granted we were beyond horrible during those years)...On this team he would be somewhere around the 9th or 10th scoring option.

He'll easily accept the midlevel 2.5mil. He's a good value at that price and I'd much rather see Al as our backup SF compared to Gomer.

Ajinca signed in France so he is off the market too. No great loss there.

Regardless of their poor start, the Lakers will probably be a team in contention down the stretch. You'll need plenty of bigs to matchup with Gasol and Bynum. Now GS has 3 C's, and a pair of PF's that bring different skills to the table. They won't be a team that gets worn down late in games around playoff time, and now they'll have a little more matchup flexibility.

According to hoopshype today, Fesenko didn't sign with the Warriors. The Warriors went in a different direction they stated.

Sign Fesenko please!

Pass on Fesenko. The reason GS didn't sign he was because he just had knee surgery and won't be able to help for a while.

Not the droid we are looking for...

Sean Deveney: Agent Bill Duffy also said that Joel Przybilla will choose between the #Heat and #Bulls by week's end. about 27 minutes ago

Scratch him off the list...We need and should get Martin now.

OOPS You're right. Old habits are like Rip's nose are hard to break.

We have no back up SF. Caron is injury prone and Gomes has proven worthless. He can't hit the bucket in shootaround. Everybody has high HOPES about Bledsoe. WHY? He wasn't that great last year. We don't know if he can shoot. He's a gamble. Maybe he'll be great in 2 yrs but with my brillant line up we go for a ring now. With Prince you know what you're getting. A solid pro who doesn't need to be benched. A great defender and starter quality if Caron gets hurt. We don't have the minutes for EB and trading Mo' and keeping him ain't happening

Who're we gonna use for SF. Foye is the closest. We have no scorers off the bench. When they come in we suck. VDN can't use such a short rotation long without injuries or exhaustion.

You didn't think I was done yet

Prince has a ring. He played with Chauncey and they know each other. Championships aren't won by athleticism. He doesn't crack under pressure. Remember Prince's block. What hustle!

Does Bledsoe crack? Does he tighten his sphincter or sh*t his pants at crunch time (LeBron)?
