    The next PG on the squad will only need to be a situational/insurance guy who enters the rotation only in case one of the regular guards misses a game. Otherwise, I imagine that the two guard spots will be occupied some combination of Paul, Harden and Gordon.

    If the team finds someone useful, though, I'm sure D'Anton will find a way to play the guy. After all, the team somehow fit Lou Williams into the rotation when the team already had Harden, Gordon and Beverley.

    Loved Jason Terry's locker room presence but he's just old as dirt. Hopefully morey can find some diamond in the rough.

    yep. got injured and consequently out of shape. his ankles became chronically bad and it not only affects his ability to perform but also his ability to stay in shape it seems.

    I'd look at Spencer Dinwiddie - the Nets may trade him as he won't get much time behind Lin and Russell. CJ Watson (waived by the Magic last week) would be my top choice among FAs. In terms of buyouts, worth looking at Dallas - too many PGs, Barea or Harris could be bought out.

    Rodriguez, Sessions, Barbosa, Lawson and D Williams can still play 10-15 mins in regular season blow-outs, but aren't worth any meaningful time in the playoffs and some of them come with heavy baggage.

    Dwayne Wade after the buyout. He'll be our Shaun Livingston. If not, Aaron Affalo.

    how about the Campazzo guy? Is there enough money for him? Though I think we need a taller backup PG..enough of the towel waver PG

    with taylor and bobby brown pencilled in, i'm not so sure they'll sign another PG. they still could sign a PG, but there are decent bargains out there at other positions that might be too good to pass up for the minimum.

    I'd look at (in no order): tony allen, beasley, spieghts, afflalo, barbosa, diaw, clark, bass, dunleavy.

    There isn't anyone out there who's a better PG than even Eric Gordon. We're keeping Taylor, that's practically confirmed. Bobby Brown will not go away. I'd rather get someone who can play 3rd string SG - I would go for Clark or Barbosa, in that order. Who knows, maybe Clark can still develop.

    I agree. Especially because adding another PG doesn't mean adding our backup PG. Our backup PG is Harden. So the next PG we add isn't really going to play a whole lot. We just need someone to fill minutes if Paul goes down while Harden is on the bench.

    Considering all who is out there, I'd rather go with a young guy like Taylor that could turn into a nice asset for us if he takes the next step, rather than a declining, sub-par vet. We've got plenty of veteran leadership on our team, but we've sent most of our youth packing. I think this is a great opportunity for Taylor to learn behind the best in the game at his position. The kid's got talent; i think it's worth giving him a chance.

    I'd look at jerian Grant. I was interested in him when he came out of college... decent PNR and very good defense as a tall PG.

    Coach has said he wants to keep Taylor with the team this year. Specifically said not to send him to rgv.

    Taylor is under ng contract so I think it'll be 'The Architect' Bobby Brown. I trust Bobby to come in and nurse a 25 point lead for six minutes in the fourth quarter

    No money. He's not NBA proven. Too short.

    Barbosa is the first person that comes to mind that's available and for cheap. He has the playoff experience and has been part of the system. Also is connected with players on the team. I don't think anyone else is comparable as far as those variables as a whole. If you're looking to win now, you backup pg isn't really someone that still is a project.

    Except EGo is more of a shooting guard.
    Looks like CP3, Taylor and 'My Prerogative' (Bobby Brown) for now @ PG

    nothing to do with anyone else but injuries to himself. unfortunate because he was a premier pg in this league and incredibly tough to guard
