    His veteran experience should help with the youngsters we have in the squad.

    Worth it even if the only thing he does is show up for OKC and Durant. For some reason he just knows how to cover him.

    He struggled most of last season but you always knew he was a vet leader on the team.

    It's a very important aspect to a good team, IMO.

    I hope he bounces back & would love to have him back.

    I would be surprised, if he was offered the BAE. He doesn't have anything left in the tank.

    I think we have his bird rights so we wouldn't have to sign him to the BAE.

    Pretty sure 2 years, $3.5 million is his vet minimum, and I imagine the 2nd year is non-guaranteed.

    Ok, that is good to know. I wouldn't be too opposed to a 1 year guaranteed deal with a 2nd year team option. Last season, he was very disappointing.

    Don't care for him. Wish we could get Delfino somehow instead.

    Veteran, leadership, locker room presence, can be a calming voice in the face of adversity and is still better than the total scrubs Covington and Gee. As things stand and if true...

    Bev / Canaan
    Harden / TD
    Ariza / Cisco
    TJ / Adrien
    Dwight / DMO

    With Nick Johnson and Dorsey rounding off the 12 men.

    Delfino is nearly coming off an injury that kept him out a year.

    Something tells me you don't think highly of the artist known as K-Pop. :)

    Although I like the signing of Papa...er, Papa...er, Papanikolau?, and I'd prefer to keep him here, the signing of Cisco might make the NBA rook that much more expendable if we can set our sights on a trade.

    Not advocating. Just sayin.

    I don't mind this, but I hope Kostas blooms quickly enough that we're not relying on Cisco for primary minutes at backup SF. Because boy, did his game fall off a cliff last year.

    You missed Papa. For a MLE signing, I sure hope he's in the rotation somehow.

    I thought Cisco would be a nice veteran leader, but his was disappointing last season. He failed to 1) hold Harden accountable for his defense, 2) hold Jeremy Lin accountable for his turnovers, and 3) hold Kevin McHale accountable for holding Harden accountable.

    Maybe it is an issue of injury. I hope he has rested sufficiently this summer while working hard on his accountability skills.

    I believe he just passed the CPA board exams.

    I hope this isn't true--Cisco is done IMO
