Default Kleiza

So we are apparently going after a SF and another C in the FA. Does that make Linas expendable? I value JJ way more than Kleiza. Should we keep him? What could we get for him?

If Weems isn't brought back we have no choice but to get a SF, since Kleiza won't be ready if the season starts on time. But really, i'm thinking he'll eventually be moved. Just a prediction.

The reason they are goin after another 3 is because Linas may be out till or just before the All-Star break (if there is a season) thats almost 3/4 the season... and when he comes back he's going to be out of shape most likley and really rusty... Next season is a complete write off for Linas IMO.

dont think we are trading kleiza especially with JV to try to help him with the transition from Europe and NBA. Probably letting go weems, probably expect Barbosa to not extend.. so we're left with Kleiza and JJ i guess. If barbosa extends i doubt we will find SF in the FA.

At this point, no teams will be willing to take him for fair value. He's coming off a major injury, didn't look that well in the NBA and has a relatively big contract. Might be better off keeping him and hoping he can improve.

Yeah, I don't think Kleiza is going anywhere. His trade value is near zero at this point.

He'll be allowed to make a full recovery, and the roster situation will be evaluated at that point.

By then we'll have a good idea of what Kleiza and JJ can contribute. They're both still mostly unknowns.

Linas could be much improved under a new system and a better role. He came here with an idea of expanding on his game and had too much freedom, or a role that was not properly defined. I could see him being a nice part of a flow offense, rather than seeing all the bad isos he was getting. What I worry about is how well he is able to recover.

I think JJ replaced Sonny Weems. Johnson/Kleiza have different playing styles, but JJ and Weems play almost in identical ways (at least before Weems got jumper-happy).

Not that I'm a big fan of Kleiza, I don't really like what I saw from him last season. I guess we're stuck with him, and can only hope the best from him.

Kind of a silly comment considering he was hurt 2 games into the exhibition games and was never close to 100% again until he finally called it a season in December. When healthy i think Kleiza can be a good contributor and he adds toughness.

Very few people have jumped back from the knee surgery hes getting. I wouldn't get my hopes up, trade him and get him out of the way IMO.

I'm sure you can in a package deal. If a team really wants a player like Jose or Bargnani, they will take Kleiza if hes thrown in there.

Man, you can't be serious. A team will want one of them so bad they'll take a crippled Kleiza. That's rich.

Gotta love when a guy hates a player so much but thinks others will jump at the chance to overpay for the same player that "obviously" sucks.

Yeah, lets keep Kleiza here to post up and get the ball stolen or blocked. Kleiza is a piece of shit.
