    Now that Josh Smith has left us for the Clippers, who are we going after? Will KJ take up the entire MLE?

    Here are some free agents that are still out there:

    Carlos Boozer
    Norris Cole
    Chuck Hayes
    Tyler Hansbrough
    JR Smith

    I would rather like Morey to spend the money on KJ, Harrell and even Alan Williams combined than any of the above mentioned.

    What a joke.

    Knowing Morey it'll be Hansbrough for the MLE. Then he'll trade Ariza for Ty Lawson and start Sam Dekker at SF.

    SF: Sam Dekker
    PF: Tyler Hansbrough
    PG: Ty Lawson

    That would be very Morey-ish.

    I thought Harrell had a cap hold, so he wouldn't be used in MLE? Not sure though

    They're not talking full MLE I hope. McDaniels better make a huge impact this season after all of this.

    Second round contract is not guaranteed, so I don't believe he has any cap hold.

    Kind of like Nick last year.

    What is it with KJ? What am I missing he's done nothing in the NBA.

    KJ so he can rot on the bench because there isn't enough minutes for him.

    I like bringing kj back. He's a really good athlete, plays aggressively, can defend and he's not a total waste on offense.

    I figure we'll be playing a lot of small ball this season.
