    Honestly feel like Tjones would have fit great with a MDA system

    TJones needs a fresh start. Maybe overseas he can establish himself and then come back to the NBA. Hopefully he stays away from street bums over there.

    Hand a gift basket to T_ones with some bengay and the BetterBasketball DVD collection and send him on his way.

    So will Jones play next in China, or will he get another small deal in the NBA before heading to China?

    I thought they would offer it to Jones because of the salary explosion and the fact that they could yank it later... but man, that says something about how far he has fallen when the threat of him accepting a $3-ish million contract was too great.

    Jones turned out to have the pluses and minuses as the pre-draft reports suggested

    Tjones would have been a 10 million dollar guy if he would have fixed his jump shot. His release is as slow as molasses.

    If D-Mo is healthy, then this move makes sense. I think Jones will be better off playing for a lottery bound team, without much pressure. Good luck to him.

    Tjones wants to go to Charlotte. They may want him if they lose Marvin Williams. Don't see it though. He's just not a rotation player at the NBA level at this point in time.

    Jones went from $15 million to not even a QO. There's a homeless man smiling right now.

    Thank you Morey! Started to think you wanted Jones back.

    If we get a chance to sit down with these free agents, the first thing that should be brought up is that TJones and Lawson aren't on the team next season.

    That's 6-8 wins right there.

    Next, disprove the myth that James can't play with another ball-dominant PG. Then, explain to them what an anomaly is.
