Default What about Telfair?

The Timberwolves are expected to either trade or buyout the contract of guard Sebastian Telfair.

Minnesota acquired the contracts of Delonte West and Telfair on Monday night in a deal that sent Ramon Sessions, Ryan Hollins and a 2013 second-round pick to Cleveland.

Telfair is owed $2.7 million in the final season of a three-year deal that he originally signed with the Timberwolves two years ago.

We could send an expiring to them for Telfair. Banks for example. Telfair is a very decent third string. Id take him over Banks anyday.
We could get him for nothing.

What u think?

What? they don't want Delonte, Beasley and Telfair on the same team.

Meanwhile...we have four point guards already. Why do we want a "decent" third sting pg?

We have 3 1/2 PGs at the moment. Calderon is on the way out of TDot, Barbosa is more a SG than a PG, and a switch between Banks and Telfair would be a good thing for both teams.

Wolves get an expiring and we upgrade our PG situation a lil bit. Cheap deal.

Telfair has still some upside. Playing with our young guys would increase his stats directly.

Nah, I don't want Telfair. We already have 4 PGs, and we're trying to get rid of one to make playing time for the others. So getting Telfair would be counterproductive.

What has Telfair ever done to show he could be productive? Pass. Besides it's painfully clear we have too many mediocre pg's.....

an inconsistent chucker who played himself out of the coach's rotation? I guess that makes for a nice fourth string PG.

Exactly. He can pass. Imagine a team w/o Calderon. No passer at all. And no point forward anymore. Im not talkin bout an allstar PG, im talkin about a 3rd PG who can create our young gunz some nice dishes.

Banks, Johnson, DeRozan and Weems on the floor....lol.
Who is going to feed them with assists? Banks? Ye...and i am Jesus.

I know Telfair is just mediocre, but we would get him cheap, and he can run our system 10 mpg. We have enough defenders. We dont need Banks anymore.

What makes you think DeRozan and weems can't create their own shot? DeRozan worked on his ball handling, and so did weems... you can expect DeRozan to be running the offense at times next season.

No.... I meant pass, as in no thanks.... dude is junk. He is mediocre... I'd rather keep Banks and his expiring contract and his professionalism on this young team.... plus he is a tank. Telfair? Dude isn't good enough to make this team even if we moved Jose.

the Raptors dont need another pont guard, they need a true center who can grab rebounds and put up some decent points

Hate to break it to you, but signing a 3rd string point guard isn't the priority right now.
