I loved Barnes coming out of college. But Barnes is a far worse defender, they turn the ball over more with barnes and the ball sticks with barnes. He just doesn't fit us right now. Unless we are willing to wait 3 years to see if he tuns it around. You ask me the 20th pick is about right or a little too much.

Please! I'd give them the 20th pick without hesitating. I doubt that's enough though.

Wouldn't you prefer giving away that pick for a big SF that can defend?

Lol I always thought he was taller. Maybe GSW trades Iggy instead ( no he's not huge but can defend) Or we somehow pull off a miracle S&T for Deng.

I'm sure anyone would be glad to get Iggy or Allen with 20th pick but I'm sure Mem nd GSW can get better.

I still have faith in Barnes, I think he'd do great here, where he'd get minutes to play SF. We'd probably have to offer Amir too though..

While Barnes is a decent player, he isn't a defender that is going to lock down large SF's. Still wouldn't mind getting him if all we had to give up was our pick and possibly Psycho T (even though I enjoy him as a Raptor) to help sweeten the deal.

Other SF's that we should be looking at to sign this free agency are:

Luol Deng
PJ Tucker
Trevor Ariza
Shawn Marion
Mike Miller
Marvin Williams
Caron Butler
Richard Jefferson

SF's that are a risk and probably wouldn't sign with us at a reasonable price would be

Paul Pierce and Danny Granger

SF's out of the league that could be alright picks ups on limited minutes would be

Andres Nocioni and Ron Artest.

What makes you think they don't like each other?

I suspect he is referring to Ariza trying to kill DD with a vicious elbow a year or two ago.

I figured that's what he might be referring to.

It was actually 5yrs ago, but i doubt they hate each other..... DD didn't even realize he did that until after the fact.

Don't they always get into it? I remember something happening this year too with Ariza, but I don't remember it too well... so my mind can be just playing tricks.
Edit: NVM he got ejected for complaining about a call. Bad memory.

i'd love pierce on this team, but his defence has gone south. I'd grab pierce for 4-5 million, but he won't come here for that.
