If it was just a 1 for 1 or possibly even a 2 for 2 I might go for it but to afford him they'll need to lose another player unless they pay tax.
He brings some shotblocking to the raps.

Bryan Colangelo's made some good moves but I don't see how they could possibly convince the Bucks to give up on Luc Richard Mbah A Moute. The guy started for them for much of last season and Skiles loves him.

I wouldn't mind taking a flyer on Meeks, if it's possible. The guy can SCORE. Don't think he can do much else, heh, but he can really really score.

For the record: I'm happy about this. Always liked Amir.

We don't know how much we sign Delfino for though. It could be just a 2 for 2 and we wouldn't have to pay the tax, no?

They still have 4. Jose, Jack, Douby and Banks.

hmm, opens up another roster spots as well. Maybe Joey and Pops are on their way to Toronto. It's a low risk move which I hope works out for the best. a lot of moves this season really have been low risk moves oppose to the Turk trade.

Cheers.

Douby can play the 2. Jack can play the 2. Banks just sucks. They're versatile.

He would be our best shot blocker and our best pf defender
he won't play much but would provide instant lane intimidation

Douby plays more SG than PG. He plays like a SG, not a PG.

Yeah and we bhave a lot more D. Bosh can play good D. Jack is a good defender. Bargnani is a good defender. Turkoglu can play D well. Patrick O'Bryant can guard his man. Rasho has been praised for his D. Now, Amir Johnson an up and coming shot blocker. Our team is stacked offensively and defensively.

He can play against the tougher matchup with Bargs/Bosh next to him too. Take the pressure off of them. I can see him taking some of the center minutes from Rasho as well since so many teams play small now. Hopefully Amir keeps developing into a consistant rotation guy because he could be a great help off of our benhc.

haha, that's a joke. The main debate one why most fans disliked the Turk move was becasue of his bad defence and rebounding lol. Turk is not how a good defender. About all he can do is keep his man infront of him at times. And as for POB, go and watch a couple summer league game would you? He looked Dazed and confused on defence.

Cheers

POB can guard his man sometimes. Am I being too optimistic here? Turkoglu also held Lebron from absolutely taking over and massacaring the Magic. That's something good to put on your resume.

Explain to me how he is a bad bigman. Roko was only going to be good for cheering on the bench. Point guard duties are going to Jose, Jack and Hedo.

Even if he's not an offensive option, he's solid defensively and a great shot blocker.

roko wasn't going to play at all, we need more depth at the 4, amir has defensive talents and possible upside.

tell me how this is not a good deal for us?

you never said sometimes. And that is a ridicolous arugment, every players in trhe league is going to make a stop in a game. Pfft, and if you did your research instead of making assumptions, Lebron averaged 39 PPG's 8 Asssits against Orlando in the conference finals. I am not debating, It's been proven over and over that these two players are below avergae defenders, accept it or get out of fantasy land.

Cheers
