Default Have you missed Linas Kleiza?

Maybe somebody waiting his return after injury in Raptors?
If yes, please advice some reasons.
If not - also please let know why.

I think Linas would fit well with what Casey wants to do on offense. My concern would be how well he is able to come back from the injury and whether he can defend well.

Yes. Our SF's blow currently and he would add some toughness and shooting from that position.

i miss him and would love to see how he would fit in under the new coaching staff.

Seriously. So far under the new regime almost everyone looks better and they seem to be used well. I would think that would continue with a guy like Linas.

He's leagues ahead of Butler and with him back we'd at least have a good offensive and a good defensive option at SF. Remember guys, he knows what it's like to be a number one option on offense and has actually scored over 40 points in an NBA game. There's no question that we'll get better once he's back.

idk why someone wouldn't want him unless they are rooting for tank mode - which i would understand btw.
otherwise, he can't be worse than Butler. He may not be 100%. And I have no idea if he fits in or not. But he's a superior talent.

I mean, if he plays like he did in NY, then I won't miss Klieza

To what we have for SF, totally agree. I like Kleiza and am eager to see what he can do on this team. What he lacks in athleticism he certainly makes up in BB IQ.

Nope, dont miss him. He wont be the same player as in his nuggets day. His injury is a tough one and im sure, it will influence his style of play.

I like JJ and Rasual is solid too. Kleiza would be a good guy when he'd play like in his older days but that wont happen.

Forget him, hes done.
