You can put two and two together. D.Will said the other day that "I was headed to the Mavs before we got Joe". You right,we don't know what was said behind closed doors,but I don't think the Nets make that deal for Joe without knowing for sure that it'll keep Deron there,which means he was informed/consulted about the deal before hand for his approval and commitment.

I agree Fields will fit into Casey's system well and at this point the Raptors might as well move DD/AJ/pick for Gay.

That is very, very debatable. Especially on the defensive end.

people, people, landry's contract is 6.66 per year for 3 years, not 2 smaller paydays the first two years, then a big one. If NY matches, that'd be their salary, not ours.

I like Fields. Sure, he's slightly overpriced, but we don't know how effective he can be just yet. Who knows, maybe in two years we'll be praising BC for picking up a 15/5/5 guys for relatively cheap. He was great in his rookie season, and playing with Melo is not a recipe for success for any wing. His numbers dipped across the board, even at the FT line, implying that his less than stellar sophomore year was as much about losing confidence as it was anything else. A new team and a fairly open situation at the SG/SF spots will go a long way in helping him find his groove.

If nothing else, he is a serviceable wing who will compete and make everyone else fight for their minutes. A little meritocracy never hurt a team...

Yes, the Tribe will always be tops in my book... but that P.M. Dawn song is pretty fantastic.

I danced with a girl to that song @ my grade 8 graduation.
It's shameful that my mind thinks of p.m.dawn over tribe but alas
my sentiment overrides my logical mind! (she was way out of my league and smelled amazing! lol)

Wow I just looked at Field's three point percentage in 2011-2012....Even Derozan shot slightly better from behind the arc.

And he shot 40% the year before. Last year was an off year to say the least which often happens the second year of a players career. I think he can at the very least be in the low to mid 30's in 3pt%. Obviously he has the ability to hit 3's. I also think he'll have a clear defined role here under Casey which he didn't always have in NY with Melo there, BS coaching situation/Coaching change. That's the hope at least.

It's not lol, just giving a realistic measurement/comparison. As long as he can hit a few wide open three's I think he'll be fine.

I think his tag has people soured, but if you forget the number, the player is actually full of potential. I can live with it, hell, had his signing worked, it would have been classic. Gotta respect the effort and live with the hit. But lets enjoy the player for who he is at this point, not for what he's getting paid, his ticket had nothing to do with his game.
