    If we gonna go down the seth curry and eric gordon hole then i will add that Bayless is available. 3 per for a backup with 2 more years. Defence mediocre and can play off ball.

    Also Mayo. The 2015 version not the 2013 fat one. 8 per. Much improved defence good shooting good playmaking for sg but as always at times too trigger happy.

    THANK YOU. Jack is garbage. He's declined so much in the past couple years since leaving Golden State. He isn't better that Beverley who most of us agree isn't good enough to be the starter if this team wants a championship. (Without a Love, LMA, Gasol sized addition)

    That's the main thing to evaluate guys. You have to be able to interpret the statistics and pair that with some sort of eye test. Personally, I watch everything from blowouts to Philadelphia vs. Orlando, but even that is nothing close to the extensive research our guys have available.

    That's why I don't have a lot of worry about the offseason. Morey is always a few steps ahead of us and most of the league for that matter, and he'll make the best decision possible.

    Things like the Bosh situation last summer happen, but with everything that's in Morey's control, I think he will make the best decision 99 times out of 100.

    LMAO, not sure about Chase, but I would definitely be happy about AB's return.

    This worries me more than the 2nd tier type stuff which I understand if you're getting them for cheap. DJ Augustin is not even near the category of those other guys. He's decent backup PG material and nothing more. That's why he's bounced around the league, and his stats are subpar. He shot 39% from the field and 33% from three and 2 turnovers a game in only 24 mpg. That's not good.

    I really wished we'd gone harder for Lowry last season, just thought we needed him more than Melo. Conley would be great but the chance so f us getting Conley or Lowry are gone I think. Lawson is by far the most likely candidate.

    Parker is entrenched in SA and they have to decide between patty mills and c. Joseph which he is restricted n QO shouldn't be that high... I'm sure there will be teams throwing more $ at Mr.94ft aka Dallas n possibly NY n LA imo n doubt Rox overpay to keep. Joseph just has never had opportunity to shine because he plays behind Parker n Mills is more 3pt specialist n energy. Reminds me of KLowry when he played in Memphis behind Conley scenario. We know Morey likes those under the radar players.

    The reason CJ mccollum think he would fit...guy has playmaking ability and yes not traditional PG but we know James likes ball in hands and I think he could def play off ball. Portland has a lot on their plate Lillard, Matthews, Afflalo player option maybe leaving, situation along with that of LMA, rumors is things got testy in playoffs. Trade scenario here imo TJones from Portland young up n coming stud 2nd, n kpap who Portland sent to us via T.Robinson trade maybe can be had? If they lose LMA u have start from ground on up again in POR.

    I just don't like the idea of Brandon Jennings n George Hill I'm on the fence. Don't want washed up PGs either.

    What about the high-salaried and oft-injured Eric Gordon? Maybe we can get him for cheap

    Try to move up in the coming draft and get Cameron Payne.

    Playing him less minutes like at a 6th man role could help the injury thing. But I've always loved Gordon and think he'd be very helpful.

    What I'd like to see is Brandon Jennings to Houston. He'd be a great fit next to Harden and he plays well off the ball.

    Also, if we keep Bev as a starting guard, I'd like to see Beno Udrih coming off the bench.

    If you don't want Jarrett Jack because he's long in the tooth, then why would you want Jason Terry?

    If Morey can trade up a little, around the 12-15 range and pick Tyus Jones, then bring Llull over the PG position will be solid for yrs to come. Keep Jet or Prigs around to show them the ropes.

    Because JT won't play many minutes, won't cost any assets, and will sign for the vet min (if he comes back).

    We need a shot creator/shooter on the perimeter - some good combination of both. easier said than done.

    keep bev.
    keep terry.

    what about austin rivers? or lin? haha.. (they're both unrestricted, no thanks)

    call me crazy but of all the unrestricted free agent guards with a high ceiling... i'd take a nice, long, cheap look at jimmer fredette. the guy just needs a fast paced offense with open looks. he's completely unused in the NBA (granted defensive limitations), but could be a steal in our 3 pt heavy offense. not as a starter, as an end of the rotation guy. (think white isaiah cannon)

    >fredette
    >batum
    danny green
    gerald green
    wesley matthews
    >lou will

    all are unrestricted.

    I agree with the overall sentiment but I would be shocked if Tyus is not available to us at 18. PG depth is solid in this year's draft, I expect 1 of Tier 2 guys to drop.
