    Nice read. We might soon forget Thornton, if you haven't already.

    All this doesn't matter cause JB probably won't play him, OR KJ McDaniels :(

    Throw him in and see what happens. Can't hurt us much in this situation.

    If he is such a good scorer, then why was he out of the league?

    What am I missing?

    Didn't realize Goudelock and Beasley are the same age -- 27 yrs old. Hopefully both 'growing up for return to NBA' at the same time!

    fwiw: Thornton was 28, so they both might only get 1yr to show it!!

    Guards < 6'5 who can shoot really are a dime-a-dozen, without another skill (to include IQ). see: Thornton, Marcus

    Could it be that this team will really become a team to be reckon with come the playoffs. IF it is this will be one heck of a roller coaster ride of a season.

    You have to understand young one, sometimes life needs to teach you via another path. He's humbled now and a better person and player because of it. Shut up and enjoy the ride.

    If Goudelock has learned to play NBA caliber defense then he will stick and be a huge factor. But....playing defense in China it's nothing compared to the NBA. I'll have to see it to believe it. He's quick enough to be a very capable defender. But I have doubts whether he actually will be at this level. Hopefully he is.

    As long as he makes Steph Curry work on the defensive end cause we know someone who claimed he would couldn't. :p
