    Morey was interested in getting that wing player as I have mentioned in a previous thread re: Dunleavy. Morey also had his eye out for Granger, but with Hamiltons strong play lately, Morey is deciding to pass.

    Fine by me. As long as we have a quality backup at the 3, I don't care who it is.

    I am sad about this. As well as Hamilton has played... I fear he is just on a hot streak, Ive always viewed him as a scrub. His ceiling is prime Ronnie Brewer, and that isnt good enough to pass on a guy who at 50% is better than 100% Hamilton.

    Having watched Granger play this season he hasn't been better than what Hamilton did last last.

    Hamilton is the perfect backup for Parsons

    knows his role and plays it well

    good chance he wasnt coming to the H anyway bro. He will probably go to the clippers, its more mins there for a guy trying to get a contract next year.

    I suspect Morey is now focusing on signing a FA vet Point guard to replace Lin.

    Hamilton has been playing well. I think I would have got Granger just to keep him away from the Clips. Oh well. On to the next one.

    very suprised that morey has basically stood pat (not carl's type) since the howard signing. my only guess is he must be preparing for another big free agent signing in 2 summers, or even a sign&trade this coming summer.

    I hope that Harden and Parsons minutes get reduced, but I suspect that the minutes will remain the same and JHAM will take Lin's and TJ's minutes.

    You always upgrade your roster if you have a shot. He should not be staying pat if Granger is available to nab.

    I don't think it's a secret that Morey is all in on the 2015 offseason. I don't know if there's a particular free agent he's got his sights on(I would guess Kevin Love), but there's no way he'd be stockpiling all these players whose contracts end after next season if he wasn't looking to have maximum cap flexibility.

    Granger has been terrible this season, he wouldn't add much to this team

    Emergence of Hamilton? Its been 2 games. The guy hasn't done ****. He's awkward with the ball and looks like a turnover waiting to happen anytime he's asked to create with the ball. We're trying to get to the WCF, not give unproven players time to develop in big moments.

    Emergence of Hamilton? C'mon, man...
