I would've brought in Jamison regardless, the man is playing on a veteran contract and wants that ring.
What did James Johnson provide? He was a SF, when we needed a SF, yes, so he filled in a role. But did you see a line up for his services? No. Why? Because he wasn't that good.
Ebanks is the same. He'd fill the starting SF role for us, but is he a piece? No, of course not. He's just a guy.
And thanks for proving my point. If he was anything more than a guy, they don't go after Jamison. They keep the kid on the cap friendly contract and go after something they need then.
