I don't think 8Mil/yr for Chandler is overpaying when you look around at what 8Mil gets you in the NBA.

it's obviously difficult to evaluate, but I would say chandler is worth somewhere between 7 and 8. Gallinari got 11 and personally I like Chandler more. I would have no problem with 8, even 9 would be acceptable, if a little riskier.

And I don't get why people keep harping about D'Antoni system. Players who were good under D'Antoni, were good even without him. It might have some merit with PGs who can benefit from the freedom he gives them, but for a SF? Not so much. Marion, Amare, Barbosa, JJ were very good players under him and very good players elsewhere.

Luke Walton makes 5 mill a year. Chandler deserves 9 mill +. Look at what some SF's are making. But at the same time JJ is progressing very well, and if he can come back next year as a legitimate offensive threat there's not much of a reason to pick up Willy C.

So "if" JJ can improve in 6-8 months there's no need to get Chandler? lol

JJ is already as good, no need for the if. We need elite talents now, WC is just a good player.

So, if you want that type of player, you have to go through draft and for that you need to tank. If you're ok with a philadelphia/indiana/denver type of team, that's fine, as long as you're not deluding yourself we could win a title WITHOUT winning the draft lottery (and by winning I don't mean getting the #1 pick, but getting the next duncan/rose/durant).
yes, i am well acquainted with probability, thanks. and the probability of getting a super-duper star via that draft or any other process is next to none. don't get me wrong, i fully support operation tank right now. we had no other choice. but if you are content to keep tanking, year after year after year, in the hope that a draft might have a guy like that and that we might get him, you are likely in a minority. hell, the probability that nba basketball ceases to exist in canada is probably more likely than the raps landing a super duper star and surrounding him with championship talent before fans and ownership are totally fed up.

we have no winning culture here. getting a good, solid team that competes every year is a better start than coming bottom five for 10 straight years hoping that we might land a stud. because realistically speaking, we probably won't land a guy like that any time soon.

tank now, but don't tank endlessly. that is the worst outcome possible for this team in the long run. take your shot, and rebuild again later. you can't just tank and pray.


edit - and for the record, phily is 21-14, 4th in the conference, indy is 22-12, 3rd in the conference, and denver is 18-17, and just out of the playoffs in the west. i'd take the first 2 of those, no problem. and denver is in that position despite getting jobbed out of 3 key players this year.

well barbosa is probably gone after this season anyways so it doesnt really matter, not trading him for something good in return is better than letting him walk

marion, amare, barbo all were that good under dantoni and later on because of nash. Nash built those players. I remember a commercial about nash where it had highlights of those four players, and their "career high stats", and then a pic of nash. JJ wasn't very good until he came to the raps, which he is now making a name for himself. So the players you just listed were good not because they were under dantoni, but because they played alongside arguably the greatest pg of all time. Now some other players who played under dantoni, without nash, they dropped off considerably after leaving his team, including wilson chandler.

and don't give me the bullshit that wc shot less and that's why he scored less, who says he'd score more by taking more shots? maybe the shots he wasn't taking was a result of him not having any other viable shots, not that he wasn't allowed to. Who's to say he can create enough opportunities in TO or anywhere else to create enough high chance shots to average 18 ppg on 50 percent shooting?

I agree completely with 'trane. You build a strong team first and foremost. Great players can emerge from that environment as much as they can from the draft.

I agree with several points in this thread, but still not convinced WC at 10M per makes a significant impact on this team. DD needs to take a big step, JV needs to make a big impact for this team to really take a step forward. Another decent SF isn't a game changer.

if you think Denver doesn't match 8M per, you're being naive. It's going to cost more than that to pry him loose.
