Default Landry Fields outlook

sooooo trying to take away a knick's trading piece in hopes of bring nash has been squashed. We have fields now.. i know that NYK's have till july 11 to match.. do you think he'll fit well on RAPS if we decide to keep him for the season..

i like field's game, i think he plays good defense and is pretty good at the 3 spot enough to start over whoever we have (james johnson?)..

what do you guys think? you think fields will become a raptor or is he better off gone as a trade piece?

his salary is not that bad, and I believe he will be a vital cog on our team. Casey knows how to make two-way players that are smart work. His last season is not reflective of what he can do whatsoever. I love it.

I don't know if he's significantly better than our other "3's", but I think Colan Gelo really does like the guy, he's torched us in days past.

i'm pretty sure BC knew what he was doing and he wasn't just signing fields to block the knicks, he gave him a contract that he felt was worth his value no matter what was going to happen with nash

A willing passer and smart cuts to the basket. Two years @ 5 million and the last year can be used as a 9 million expiring contract. However, I wish the Raps had the cap space when they were trying for chandler at the trade dealine.

hmm, Chandler was injury prone, surprisingly out of nowhere, I think thats the last thing we need on this roster, we'll see how Landry turns out

also i dont think we've had the chance to see fields ceiling due to melo possibly crashing his position on the knicks and possibly demoralizing him. i hope he continues to improve..

btw kinda off topic but when r the summer league games?

Well, everyone knows that a highlight mix is the answer to all questions about a player, so I must post one.

But seriously, I think he was a decent player in a not-so-great situation. The Knicks roster turned him into a nobody there. If the Knicks match, he'll go back to being a forgotten guy.

He's a smart and versatile player. And Casey said he values players with a high enough basketball IQ to grasp his system. I guess all I'm trying to say is that Javale McGee will never play here.

Really hoping that Fields or James Johnson isn't starting.

I like both but neither should be a starter imo.

I don't mind Derozan starting if the SF is upgraded especially if that SF can play D, so then Derozan plays in the backcourt with Lowry who plays tough D and a SF that also plays D.

Yeah - no McGee. I'm not sure what TOraps was smoking.

With Fields, I hope he's smart and misused. I think he might have gotten carried away with being the toast of NY and forgot what got him there. In which case who knows where he ends up performance-wise? I just want the FT% to improve for sure, and the bible class pantomimes to stop, or it has a chance to be a signing I despise.

What does the "bible class pantomimes" have to do with anything? If he's playing hard, and getting us wins in the future, who cares.

isn't his contract spread out evenly over three years, so the cap hit is 6.66 million a year? while, if NY matches, THEY get the last year as a 9 million cap hit, i.e the poison pill. dan, little help?

Correct. 6.33M per year. Give or take depending on the accuracy of the reported total.

And by the way, the Knicks have at least until the 14th to match.
