    Sign Melo for whatever we have left. Bring Ryno off the bench. Call it an offseason

    When Bzdelik gets his claws back into him, The Menace shall thrive in our defensive schemes. I love it.

    For all you Trevor Ariza stans, James Ennis gives you 90% of his production (both ways) for a much better price. Don't let other fans/media tell you otherwise.

    a team just lost 2 of their best wing defenders and just grabbed one to fill a need. whether you like ennis or not, they're addressing whats missing.

    I really love this pickup. Doesn't completely replace Ariza, but certainly addresses our gaping hole at the wing.

    All these people talking down the signing just because he isn't a big name, he can play the role we need him to extremely well.

    You're talking to people that care more about the name than the game.

    A good pickup. When you look at the stats over the last couple years, replacing Luc with him seems like a wash. And any edge Luc may have is mitigated by his bum shoulder(which I don't think he ever had surgery on) and the fact that Ennis is nearly 4 years younger(just turned 28).

    I like this move. Honestly, if we lose Ariza and Luc and replace them with Melo and Ennis, that's at worst a lateral move IMO. Then all that's left is resigning Capela and finding a suitable backup for him(Hartenstein? Joe Cheese?) as Nene can't cut it anymore.

    Is he meant to replace Ariza or Luc? If it's the latter, he'll fit right in and likely be much healthier.

    I think it's debatable that he'll have a better year this coming season than Ariza would at age 33.

    Then clearly you're not much of an NBA fan.

    If coach Jeff B likes him ...that makes me feel a lot more confident in this signing.
