    I think 5/80 w another 10 in incentives is reasonable...

    Glad to have CC back in the fold!

    What great news and what a relief. I was out cruising the tropical fish shops, came home and checked ClutchFans, and then cheered! Crisis averted and a key member of last season's 65 win team is signed, sealed, and delivered.

    Bravo, Clint! You won't regret it. :cool:

    (and if we're lucky, we won't regret it!)

    @BackdoorHarden has made @H-Town Melo obsolete

    his agent must not have 'known their rights' - cause that always results in higher paydays... lol

    No team or player options. We've got Clint nailed down for a solid 5 years. Morey strikes again! He's young enough that I'm not bothered at all about not having a team option the last year. Capela will only be, what, 28? Crazy.

    This was never a worry. Also know that Ne' explained how Htown is the best place for Clint to develop. We've got a great vet who's healthy and wise. I'm biased but Ne is a leader, minutes under MDA or not.

    Me7o speaks with Ne often....this also feels like family reunion.

    And, with some movement of lesser impact, we may be able to load up on some more sharp shooters to finally put the Warriors down like the rabid beasts of faux competitors we all know about.

    Random Ear: Jet wishes Htown well...no, that's not a signing. Still very close to James and "The Union"


    But, we do need another guard for CP3 pain...ever think of an Anthony Mason type who plays point forward? Consider it, perhaps.

    XO....I'm feeling happy today. I ran 5 miles and didn't feel look like death, much like the fans in Salt Lake whose mothers are Ostertag twins.

    :0)

    -piece by piece till its a 6-piece....or...peace? both? What a great locker room potentially.

    The only Anthony Mason type I can think of is Donkey. Boris Diaw coming out of retirement? We really could use a skilled passing big.

    So the guy who single handedly made Gobert (24.5 M/per) and KAT (ROY and #1 pick
    K) useless should only get paid 5M? The guy whom if paired with Berad and CP3 won 90% of their games?

    I'm so glad we have the Harden Capela duo for at least 5 years, just when Harden starts to declined in

    Boris Diaw played for France yesterday. Played point forward for D'Antoni back in the day with Phoenix.

    Hmmm. I thought P.J Tucker was our "Anthony Mason" except Mason couldn't shoot well. Is Codman talking about Faried?
