Just think about it with your brain for a minute instead of your heart. What cap space? What would one of these fringe starters off an MLE contract do for this team? :mu:

What do you mean by cap space? I thought we had our full MLE to use on him. And Hickson is a double double machine that can play both big man positions.


:mu:



And if you want to tank, I'm pretty sure Cleveland only won 19 games as Hickson as their starter. :cookie:

cap space is needed to improve this team overall. We have none, and no bench. Join us, all aboard on the tank.

lol you didn't answer my question. What does he do for this team? Get double doubles? that's not an answer. The only thing I got was play both big positions.

I'm pretty sure getting double doubles means it's for the team and helps us win games. Double doubles = more points and rebounds = possibly more wins. Any big who can do that is valuable. We only have one big who can really score, and even Jonas won't be that consistent. So it would be nice to have another big who can put up some points.

Although Kirby I DO now realize that we need to spread out that MLE to get a deeper bench, if we seriously do not have ANY capspace. But in my opinion, we need to address the four position the most this offseason, as much as I love Amir. Amir is a good starter but a great big off the bench. Not to mention I haven't heard of us looking at anyone else at all anyway at any other position.

Not at all. Some Portland fans disliked Hickson for his zero defense and lack of interest in the games. I do agree that at 3 years 15m it's a good deal, but he was a terrible C pairing with Aldridge even with his numbers. They needed a big body that could defend, and that's why he's gone while Portland fans are drooling over Robin Lopez.

Jeff, the tank has logic.

Besides, the point is to not get any better.:mu:

That might have a lot to do with the fact he isn't even a C. He's 6-9, he would play a lot better at his natural position, which is a position we are in need of. I don't know about the lack of interest thing. Either way, a double double stuffer is good value for the MLE.


And enough with the tanking points as if we are going to do it for sure, we don't even know if we are doing it. Chances are even leaning slightly towards sticking with this group.
