    jopatstradamus no joke. I only voice the title due to his bold response to the rest of the board for 3 years straight. Dude called him a fraud even when he was playing mediocre. I was wrong and you see the light of your day today and have every right to bask in its glory.

    T-Jones doesn't need a shooting coach. He needs a heart & brain surgeon.

    Looks like Clutch called it. Terrence would have signed the QO for one year.

    I think the majority of the board knew Terrence jones was a scrub. He was never quick laterally, had a terribly show shooting form, and was totally lost on defense every second he was on the court.

    Just the loud minority drowning out the silent majority.

    Granted, he posted some decent stats his sophomore year, but the fact that he never improved, even in college, was very telling.

    A one-year deal? Man, T-Jones' stock took a nosedive. A year ago, we were seeing articles about him commanding 10-15 mil a season in free agency.

    He hasn't signed yet but the reports are that the Pels were offering a 1 year league minimum of right at 1 mil contract. If offered the QO Jones would have made more than 3 times that amount.

    I thought the "shouting in the bum's face" is underrated on this board.

    Stepped on him and yelled at him.

    Lol people are expectating too much from a 18th pick...

    If he stays a 12 and 6 or 7 rpg player that is decent, and does not improve.

    He will get back to that.

    So the Pelicans & Rockets traded forwards.

    You can have Jones at just over $5M for the next 4 years or Anderson at $80M for the next 4 years? And they'll give you, give or take 5 games, 60 games per season.

    Yeah but that's assuming Jones will be in the NBA for 4 more years.....that's a super unsafe assumption.

    Ha, true.

    So are you taking Anderson by default? :)

    LOL yeah, pretty much, but I still think he's massively overpaid. I'm going to hope for the best.

    We do not know when Anderson will dropp off. But I guess in the next 2 years Anderson is the veteran there.
