    How about him? If we want to go all in and get players on a comeback trail and high risk, high reward like Boogie, why not give him a shot?

    I think we have to be bold to beat the Lakers.

    We don't have a backup PG

    We need former stars that can be stars again

    Maybe? I've heard crazier things. Only if other more proven players are not available though and we need someone. NG deal though.

    He's done. Ish Smith beat him last year for minutes. Boogie was injured, came back and looked good, then got injured again so there's a chance he can still be good. IT got injured, came back and looked like trash, and has been healthy since then so he's a known commodity.

    Those hip injuries never heal and for a player who’s biggest strength was his speed that is a death sentence. Pass

    I'd take a flyer on him. He needs a change in scenery. Certain teams aren’t for certain players. He's a scorer and needs the freedom to put buckets up

    Too tiny. Wouldn’t stand a chance in a switch-heavy scheme.

    He has been humbled.
    I think he could be 6th Man of the Year material
    It's not like Lou Williams was a defensive juggernaut.
    If Isaiah Thomas can just Get Buckets. . . .that might be enough.

    The worst defensive signing this team could make.

    Is Clemons still on the team? I’d replace him with IT, but that’s as far as I’d go, and even then, he might start complaining and b*tching about minutes because he thinks he’s still got it.

    Are Mudiay and Yogi still available? Mudiay over Yogi for me, but he will be okay too.

    we were a strong offensive team last year, and a very average defensive team.

    we've since given away our best defensive player for a 3rd scorer. I think we need to add some defense. IT is not what we need.

    Even with a pretty optimistic case for what he can be next year he's a terrible fit with this roster. He also doesn't handle sitting on the bench well. Hard pass.

    If we traded Russ and James, IT's still waiting for a call, and we're still trying to be competitive, mayyyyyyyyyyyyyybbbbbeee depending on what the Russ/James trades brought back.
