Default What About Adding Damon Jones?

Doug Smith mentions in his blog this morning that Damon was chatting it up with couple Raptors the other night in Atlanta. He'd be a good veteran/back-up PG not to mention give us some more toughness.

Thoughts?

An interested observer at that game, and a guy who had a chat with a Raptor type or two, was Damon Jones.

One thing for sure if the Raps find a way to bring him on board, it wont ever be quiet around the locker room again.

I hate that guy. All he does is shoot 3s on offense, and I dont remember him being a good defender. We already have Kapono for that.

I don't know if Damon can play basketball anymore. Shit, he's known as a 3-point specialist but he doesn't get a lot of burn...and all he does is camp out at the 3-point line. nothing else. I don't think he can keep up defensively. I'd pass on him. And speaking from my heart, I'm not fond of the cat. So all in all, what Bel said.

I'd take him - he was a really good player before his head got too big and he's played the backup role before. He can handle the ball, distribute and he has a lot of competitive energy.

Seriously, you guy are talking about getting Marbury with all his flaws, how bout D.Jones? He could probly hook us up with some nice kicks

We need to get a slasher...a defensive stopper...a lockdown perimeter defender - oh Damon Jones, another three point shooter, let's sign him.

I'd rather not sign him. He isn't a true point guard so there is no need to be redundent

Damon Jones? Wha? Not for his on court ability and CERTAINLY not for his wardrobe. That dude dresses like style is going out of style. Yikes.
