    So many people think our record would be better if only Canaan had got more minutes?! Dude never even went Linsanity. He's just a young player. Don't get distracted by shiny objects.

    Glen Rice Jr back to the Vipers is a much important move than sending Canaan to the Vipers.

    Clearly our Phoenix Suns overlords are requiring both Shved and Canaan to get PT and see what's up.

    I think McHale would have an easier time playing Canaan if we had a bigger backup 2. Just not a good match with JET.

    Loool. Omg, it's not that hard to understand. You send Shved ALONG with someone. He's a nice trade FILLER option. Shved would never be the main piece of a major trade. He would simply accompany who ever the main piece was. Just to make the trade a little sweeter. Are you familiar with how Morey works at all?

    He still finishes at 56% (http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/c/canaais01.html). About average. Not great. Considering his other qualities, this lay person would say he deserves NBA minutes.

    Canaan can stretch the defense with his shooting. Trading him would be a big mistake

    For some reason, McHale doesn't like his shot selection, but he is the best 3pt shooter on the team - and if he makes it....it is a good shot.

    I said he would be a contract throw in. You disagreed. Now you agree. Lol.

    he should be getting PT yes, but with BEv and terry, how exactly did yall want to fit him in the rotation? He would be getting very little minutes. Bev, terry , and isiah are all too small to play 2 judging off most teams. So he would rarely get any PT anyway.

    He's a good player but i rather have Terry out there as a back up than him.

    I'm just glad he's gone so I don't have to hear "cannonball" 500 times a game. Seriously that has to be the stupidest thing bill warhell has ever said.

    BS decision.

    He can't learn Defense there. His offense is good enough for the bench in the league

    it's too bad he didn't work more on his man-to-man D over the summer. despite his shortcomings has a playmaker, with his footspeed he could be useful to this team keeping up with the quicker/smaller PG's that bev sometimes has trouble staying glued to
