    We're getting every player Harden has had some problem going against.

    Tucker, Luc

    Missed out on Simmmons though.

    Most people here don't know jack squat about basketball. Any NBA junkie will tell ya Tucker and Mbah a Moute is an excellent signing for a team looking to strengthen on defense, especially at that price tag.

    Ariza or Capela are not getting traded for Melo...I repeat, Ariza or Capela will not be getting traded

    I can say it louder for those in the back if they can't hear me

    Doubt we have to worry about it until the year after next. Remember we have those about $7 mil in NG’d contracts. Put us right under the the tax if we trade them + anderson for melo.

    Im guessing he'll also be sharing minutes (with Tucker) at the 4 depending on who we're playing, not just the 3. This means Tarik we'll be backing up the 5 most of the time.

    If we get Melo & we don't give up Gordon or Capela, on paper this team can really compete with GSW.

    Right. Paul, Tucker, Moutte, Ariza, Nene.

    That unit ain't scaring nobody offensively.

    Paul, Gordon, Tucker, Mbah, Nene sounds like a good second unit to me!

    If you're basing these lineups off of hypothetical injuries then I can base my own lineup off the premise of trading for Carmelo.

    Paul
    Gordon
    Tucker
    Melo
    Nene

    That lineup IS scaring people.

    Not liking this pick up if it means we can't re-sign Troy. Only justifiable excuse is if Troy demanded bigger contract than what is offered to Mbah Moute.

    I like Troy better. Fits this offense better with his quick-release-trigger-happy mentality. Mbah Moute is very hesitant three point shooter. Not to mention Troy is very athletic which is a very underrated part of succes in today's NBA.

    Replace Aria with Gordon, and you have a bunch of great catch and shoot players with the best PG in the league. I think that lineup will score plenty.

    Mbah and tucker will rarely see time together. If any. Gordon or harden will always be in place of one

    It surprises me how surprised we are about this signing..... I kinda always thought we were gonna get this guy as soon as we got CP3. Thought we would trade a NG's for him but when I saw he was a FA I knew he was coming just thought it would be after the Carmelo trade......
