he probably looks at himself as at least a 2nd PG, not a 3rd PG, which he really is
anyways, if he's our 3rd PG we might as well find some other young guy to develop

Didn't have a huge issue with him. Won't really miss him much.

No, I read it. I was about to say you should just rename the thread to "Guys, it's just not looking good" - we have BC to thanks for that. MU will have to be really creative to improve the team with near zero flexibility. I think LKZ getting amnestied is practically guaranteed. What he gets for Bargs will be interesting. I'm hoping for 1 of the following or a combination of the following: cap relief (so an expiring contract or very small contract);a pick or 2 (whether they be 2nd round or 1st round); 1-3 rotation players who could fill a team need - backup PG, backup big.

Either we get back a rotation player and/or a pick for Bargs, or he gets amnestied instead of Kleiza. Kleiza could be a decent piece at the deadline for teams looking to shed salary.

I would like that return for Bargs. I still have my doubts that Bargs will be amnestied by MU. I've thought that as well about LKZ but I think he'll face the amnesty axe.

all i know is that with JL3 gone the PG position is now just Lowry who is split pretty much 50/50 by fans on whether he's good or not
other than JV and Amir the big positions are pretty much open
and there's the Bargs situation still
looks like a lot of unknowns in a lot of key positions on the roster, this should be an interesting free agency

If you're going to miss him, just think of all the moments Casey played him for 30+ mpg because of his love for "vets" and burying Sebastian on the bench

Really? Sebastian has been in the league longer than JL3. JL3 at least could hit a shot, Sebastian had problems with a barn.

I wouldn't call JL3 much of a vet compared to Telfair, he's only 2 years older than Telfair and has been in the league a year less than Telfair
Telfair didn't play because he frankly isn't that good and in a rotation that usually only features a starter PG (Lowry) and 1 backup, Casey went with the guy that was already on the team since the beginning of the season and a guy who is known as a scorer and probably our only 3 point shooter
Telfair is terrible offensively and has not developed any real skills since he got drafted in 2004 which is almost 10 years ago now
realistically, neither of these guys deserve any significant minutes, which is why JL3 was just released and Telfair hasn't been re-signed

Well, let's not get all doom and gloom. For the crowd that craves a spot in the bottom of the E.C. playoffs, they should provide it if they do nothing else, even with Bargnani. And either way, some not-so-great conracts continue to tick down in the meantime, creating new expirings.

And sorry, D.H. Not trying to step on any toes. That's why some of us are facts n figures ignorant. We haven't ttuned in to the CBA and salary cap guts.

Title makes it sound like JL3 was in prison or something.

He should be lucky that he got as much playing time as he did last season.

Glad he won't be back.. Not the kind of backup you want for your squad... He's a shoot first, second an pass third kind of guard, HOG.. Bootleg Nate Robinson, one person said tank because we got rid of him, more like tank with him

Telfair hasn't been extended yet, and it doesn't look like he will be. He's as good as gone.

Telfair made it quite clear to anyone who was listening or watching that he didn't want to be here. His family lives in Arizona. I like his defensive ability and was hoping he could stick and even compete interanlly with Lowry, but he didn't have a positive attitude in trying to make the trade work to his advantage.
