Some team will get a very good defensive player for a song.

He's a good kid. Physical defender. Can knock down 3's at a good clip. I'd rather have him than Douby.

Definitely not a top rotation player - but not really a "scrub". Could be a nice "insurance" guy near the end of the bench.

Check out his defensive numbers for a pretty good defensive Spurs squad.
On the court, opponent's scored 5.6 pts LESS per 100 possessions as opposed to when he was off. Would be a nice complement/insurance to our offensively minded crew.

I dont understand how he cant find a place in the league. Hes tough, he defends, he hits the 3 with decent regularity, and hes a smart player. He played well when he got minutes on the Spurs. Very odd.

And they gave him up in favor of a rookie 3rd string point guard behind Steve Blake and Andre Miller. Guess they want to give the young guys more burn. Even Andre comes off the bench now. Makes me wonder if Turkoglu knew something about lack of playing time in Portland??

If they gave Hedo in excess of 10 mil a season, I'm sure he'd be a starter. Udoka on the other hand was probably making close to the minimum.

would definitely take him over Douby
Portland has too much depth and I could see how he got lost in the shuffle

i don't see the Raptors picking him up though, already got too many guys to try and fit into the rotation. i would rather have him than weems though.

Normally I'm inclined to agree with you but they're paying Andre $7 million a year and he may be coming off the bench. Its nice to see Portland paying their young studs but all their moves to acquire veteran leadership have been confusing.
