    This guy has played 11mpg for us and shoots 20 percent from the field. We already had a scrub point guard in Alexi Shved. What was the point in trading one scrub point guard plus draft picks for another scrub point guard? Those second-rounders could have been used to sweeten the pot in a real trade, or used to get us another Chandler Parsons. Is there something I'm not seeing with the cap ramifications of this deal or did Morey the Moron blow it like he does everything else?

    Making a trade for the sake of making a trade. :)

    No graph? This thread is worthless without one.

    He's a 40% career shooter from 3.
    But apparently that doesn't translate to Houston (See Trevor Ariza)

    He's also a better ball-handler/PG than Bev.
    But, his shooting surely needs to improve for him to benefit this team

    Prigs is not a scrub, look at his stats with his assists to turnover ratio is high, McFail just refuses to play him.

    Morey the Moron--that's new ;)

    well, he's our insurance for when Terry's arms and legs fall off--from one 37-yr old to another

    really, what has the JET done lately? and yet he gets how many min a game?

    McHale doesn't know how to utilize PGs except to say "attack harder" "push the ball faster"

    Man... I just don't know. Our PG position is giving me a migraine. We're also really missing Dwight badly against all these big teams.

    Makes zero sense right now.

    UNLESS

    Will Bynum, Toney Douglas, and others told Morey no.

    Can Bev get the flu again so we can see what starting Pablo would look like?

    His contract worth 1.6-1.7 mil but only need 290K for buy out next season.

    That's the reason.

    He is a human life who's value extends beyond what he does for a living.

    You really convinced me with the multiple scrubs, can you include the scrub-level of the players in a graph somehow? Really interesting stuff.

    His primary value is his mostly non-guaranteed contract for next season.

    Bo McCalebb is currently a free agent, recovering from torn ligaments on his shooting hand from back in January. Just say'n.
