just putting this out there...
Beasley is available and would be cheap. what do you guys think of him for 5 mil?
cheap, good rebounder, can score. he's a nucklehead, but he's young and can be put in his place by a good coach like casey.

I think we should definitely try that, he's 23 or so. Imo he has time to turn the screw and become a really solid player.

the first thing i thought when i found out that beasley is available - "GET HIM TO TORONTO, DAMN IT!"

...Too bad he isn't a vet and we won't be interested in him :cookie:

If Colangelo wanted Beasley, we'd have him already. He didn't want him in the Bosh S+T, remember? No way Beasley comes here.

no, he'd just have attitude problems, be a sub-par rebounder + defender, then after 5 seasons we'd fire our coach to find a coach that might be able to hide his weaknesses and make him look like an all star in 13 games in a shortened season :cookie:

Amazes me that you'd continually dig at AB but leave underachievers like Bayless, DD, Ed alone. Talk about being impartial!

underachievers because they haven't spent 6 seasons on this team with no improvement in their weakspots which for Bargs so happen to be the basics for a PF (d+rebounding). DD just finished his 3rd season. ED was a sophomore. JB was playing behind vet PGs and coaches who don't exactly favour youth.

I never leave DD alone, he is worse than Bargs. I have probably posted many times recently saying that DD can only do 1-2 things.

JB - my stance has always been that if he's not starting here, I'd prefer him not to be on this team. He just is a much worse player off the bench.

ED - I would love for him to be this team's starting PF but with BC here (which means that Bargs is practically untouchable) unfortunately ED is a trade piece. Yes, he has underperformed but his rebounding is solid. His D is hard to judge given Casey's treatment of him. I, unlike others, never expected him to be an option on offense at all. The most ppg he could ever average is about 10 if he was a starting PF.

Just because I like to mention Bargs' faults a lot doesn't mean he's the only one with problems.

if 10th seed in the East isn't bad, Toronto sports teams have socialized you successfully.

Well that was before Beasley exploded in Minnesota that one year. But last year he played even worse than he did in Miami. Pretty sure he was injured.

I don't know if this needed its own thread, but Sonny Weems (according to the front page of hoopshype) is meeting with the Memphis grizzlies.

Thoughts? What kind of offer would you match (if any)?

we're probably not ready to make an offer. Depends if we do a big SF trade or not.

i think sonny could be a good contributor and i like him.

Who said Metta doesn't have game??!? Pursue this guy (not really)

Dropped 50 at Nike Pro City off mostly jump shots:



Who said World Peace can't play? Who said he can't shoot? Who said the Lakers would be better off without this guy? I know it's just a pick up game but he looks nimble and is making outside jumper after outside jumper. A lot of those jumpers were contested too. He's still got game, guys.
