    bargain I suppose. One of the most expensive backup PGs, but at least he has potential to be great at defense again.

    If we trade Ariza or Brewer then this might make some sense. But only in that scenario.

    wing players are getting paid more than point guards right now. it's a matter of supply and demand. additionally, brewer probably wasn't willing to give us as much a discount as bev was because this is his last payday in the league.

    I think it's slightly overpaid for his worth but the PG FA pool pickings were slim, and pressure from other teams interested in him raised his price tag.

    To be worth the contract, Bev has to stay healthy and play with the same defense from the previous year. He needs to improve his shooting which was abysmal this year. He needs to learn how to pass the ball into the post and stop the lazy passes on the perimeter.

    Morey is building something special. Bev/Harden/Ariza/DMo/Howard can be a DOMINANT starting 5. Such a great balance of offense and defense. Add in Brewer, potentially Smoove and Stuckey, from the bench and you've got a VERY deep team STILL WITH MULTIPLE ASSETS. We are built to win in 2016 and beyond.

    Even I'm not mad at this. We still need a real point guard though.

    For those that think this is an overpay....

    Next year the cap will be 89m and the year after 108m. Possibly higher.

    He will be 7% and then 5% of the cap.

    Wing players getting paid more is a matter of CIRCUMSTANCE. It is by no means the norm. Team by team case. Chris Paul and James Harden ain't getting paid less than Paul Pierce and Trevor Ariza, I'll tell you that. I understand business but when the supply is so low that you over value the actual product (or player), you put yourself in a tough situation. Thats the kind of crap that will have you signing Aaron Baynes for 3 yrs/20 million. No supply of centers, so please convince me how that was a good signing because of lack of supply and high demand.

    How so? This is a great deal with the way the cap is increasing.

    This turn of events seems like it should drive up the cost to acquire players on relatively bargain contracts like Lowry, Lawson, Collison, etc.

    This is just great. The Rockets resign two of the worst shooters in the NBA for $14 million total.

    I think they could have offered that to one quality player instead of two mega scrubs.

    All we need is a playmaking/scoring guard to come off the bench and some shooters

    6.5M for Aron Baynes in this current market is ok. I mean, when you have DeMarre Carroll making 15M/year, it's ok to pay 6M for a competent backup C. I don't think that's an overpay.

    It was either sign them or get nobody. If we had 14 mil to spend LMA would already have committed. Smh. When the cap goes up these contracts are gonna look so cheap, think of it this way Wes Mathews got offered 16 mil a season from sac. We're getting two kep rotations pieces for 2 mil left.
