    Very interesting article regarding T. Jones and the Pelicans. If DMo stays healthy and is the Rockets starting PF of the future and Montrezl Harrell is a very decent young back-up PF this season ... I can see this scenario become reality and the Pelicans could go hard after Jones.

    They can have Jones for Anderson.

    Wait they think Jones will be that second star....:rolleyes:

    Look I like Jones as a role player, but he is not the second star of a play off team. I would love the Jones Anderson trade.

    Idiotic. Didnt even read all of it because of the stupidity. Hes a POWER FORWARD NOT A CENTER ffs. You want to play a mvp caliber out of position?

    All day! If they want Jones for Anderson, I'd do that every day. Seems like it would make both teams better. We need the shooting, they need the versatility.

    and tim duncan played most of his early carreer in his natural position.

    Let's move Anthony Davis out of his natural position to accomodate what? The acquisition not of an all star but of Terrence Jones of all people!
    This is a crap article. Trully crap.

    Plus all the advanced stats show that A.D won't be able to even play good center coz he can't protect the rim well. Blocks=/= rim protection.

    League is going small. Davis will be fine at the 5. You don't have that many low post players to worry about Davis defending them. OTOH, Davis will torture whichever slow 5 is guarding him

    There we go again with the arbitrary per-36 stats when Jones will never get 36mpg or close to it.

    He's a 12-6 guy, until a coach gives him more minutes, no matter what the extrapolation out to 36 mpg shows us.

    oh jeez...I wonder when the "the league is going small" is repeated ad nauseum if the one who posts it know WHY it happens. What purpose does it serve?

    Anthony Davis is one of a handful of BIG men who can guard the perimeter. If you put him at center you minimize his advantage. Teams use small ball because they DO NOT have anthony davises. If they had they would go BIG BALL.
    Especially puting him in a very less advantageous position like center to stick in a talent like Jones. Not another All Star.
