    Just a question. I am going to(reluctantly)say yes.
    My reasons:
    McGee's play was promising towards the end of the season.
    He is 3-4 years younger than Asik.
    He is more of a shot blocking and scoring threat than Asik.

    I blame his absent mindedness on youth and bad coaching. Houston would actually be the perfect situation for him.
    Now, i know they should not have offered that much to Asik, but in 3-4 years, Mcgee will be well worth that amount.

    What say you Clutchfans?

    McGee is actually a much better player than Asik and will get paid a lot more.

    Not to mention it would be a little messed up to agree to an offer sheet with Asik and then leave him hanging with just the QO.

    I wonder if McGee is plan (B) for the Rockets if we don't land Howard.

    I don't know if Houston has the cap space, but I'm talking about landing both Asik and McGee.

    That would make for a pretty good 1-2 punch at the 5.

    10 million for 1 year actually isn't bad; McGee just needs the right environment.

    dang, what is the nugs cap situation? It seems like they sign everyone to a 40- 50 mill contract.

    5/50 for McGree vs. 3/25 for Asik -- anyone still thinks we overpaid?

    Mcgee isn't that bad, sometimes when you're playing with a bonehead (aka Blatche) you turn into one as well.

    I'm not that big a fan of Mcgee but I would certainly prefer getting him at 10M a year than trading all of our young guys for 1 year of Howard.

    My only issue with him is with Mcgee you can't put an emotional/impatient guy like Mchale as coach. Mchale benches guys who space out and do useless stuff on the floor (aka Dalembert who played like 5 mins a game at the end), him and Mcgee might butt heads.

    Yeah, but if it turns out this isn't that "right" environment, then we're on the hook for $40M over four MORE years for a talented bonehead.

    But some posters here will be thrilled with those occasional highlights.
