Just for kicks I'll say over and I'll take the Raps minus 12.5.

Monroe cannot sign an extension, nor can teams exceed the cap to re-sign him as he won't have Bird Rights if he is traded.

Another one where we struggled early and yet the game always felt like we were going to blow them out. All it took was a few minutes of concentrated defence and they were done.

Well done boys.

I think there were rumours of trading down to get Leonard if our guy didn't drop to 5 (and frankly he shouldn't have). But when JV dropped, plans changed.

He's looked great for years. His PER the last 4 years: 21.6, 21.0, 23.5, 26.1 (this year). His WS/48: .215, .172, .227, .274. Yes, this year the Mavs are making him look better, but he has always...

Meh, it's fine. When you have the red and silver in there, it really isn't all that similar to the Nets logo (secondary logo, and there are several teams that have similar logos - I think it...

It's 3-in-4 years for repeater tax, so it would start the clock.

I agree that the Hans/Steamer deal is better. And I'd be ok with gambling that Amir/DD don't meet their incentives.

Well, it would certainly be with the intention of keeping Wright long term. You think the winning bid in Feb is going to be a 50+ second rounder? Years from now?

Wolstat tweeted that it is indeed part of the rebrand, but will have colour, so maybe the red version that was originally posted is the new logo?

Them being nearly identical in spite of taking WAY less contested jumpers is kind of my point. Clearly the contested jumpers were not driving the offensive performance of the team up, since their...

My problem is if you take on Green, your cap situation is kind of screwed next summer in terms of retaining your free agents without going into the tax.

Pull-up shots: 33%
Contested jumpers: 41%
ORTG: 110.7

Last 10 games:
Pull-up shots: 31%
Contested jumpers: 34%

Yes, because, as the numbers show, he is taking more of the type of shots that tend to cause players to "be playing poorly on offense."

I have zero issue with the contested shots DD takes with less than 4 or 5 seconds left. Of course, those do not represent anywhere near the majority of the contested shots he takes.

I agree - when the offense fails, we need DD to be able to hit 40% of his contested shots, because that's all that's left.

What we absolutely do NOT need is DD treating that shot as a primary option...

Hayes is expiring just like Wright. Wright has length and quickness and is an ideal fit in Casey's defensive system.

We could do a Hansbrough + Steimsma deal for Wright instead, and bank on DD...
