OK Mitch, stop. Just stop. No more deals. You killin these GM's man.

Jimmy should double Mitch's salary because he's head and shoulders above almost all of the GM's, if not all.

Didn't Philly have Meeks rights?

Wonder why they couldn't have thrown him in via SnT for about 1.5 mill more than he signed for, especially if they sent out Glock's non-guaranteed.

And this summer still ain't over.

Still time to land one more free agent. One more piece...

We don't even need another piece.

Bryant
Howard
Nash
Gasol
Jamison
World Peace
Hill
Meeks

That's the best eight man rotation in basketball and it's not even close.

What a great term! This off season that he has pulled off out of necessity due to what the little gnome like weasel did to all his hard work and successfully accomplished plan last year.... is un....effing....believable.

Unless you think Hill is going to be a 3rd string PF.

Hill is really a PF/C, just like Gasol. Jamison will play both SF and PF. I think he's better as stretch PF at this point in his career, but that's just me.

Jamison: Combo forward
Hill: PF/C
Pau: PF/C
Howard: C.

If we get Martin for example, Hill would move permanently to the center position. Martin would be a 4 (backing up Pau), capable of covering both forward positions on defense. Then we can move Jamison to the 3 behind Metta, and that works nicely:

Nash/Blake
Kobe/Meeks
Metta/Jamison
Pau/Martin
Howard/Hill

That's a legit 10-man rotation right there.

i want Jaminson at PF not SF. He has the advantage at PF NOT SF, not quick enough.

Ebanks as SF isn't half bad. Remember, he was starting for us at one point and was actually doing pretty well. So i expect him to improve a bit over the offseason. Also, if he's THE backup SF with consistent minutes i think he'll be pretty productive for us and is the defensive guy for the bench. young, athletic, mid range, defender, long...etc

ill roll with Ebanks

^ That's fine. Give me Delfino as the back-up 3. We need another shooting SF.

PF - Gasol, Jamison

Jodie Meeks had larger offers from the Washington Wizards and Milwaukee Bucks, but signed with the Los Angeles Lakers to compete for title.

Not to mention Hill and Nash.

Nash/Blake/Duhon
Bryant/Meeks
Artest/Ebanks/Clark
Gasol/Jamison
Howard/Hill

D-League: Goudelock, Sacre, and Odom.

:man10: Holy crap man.


:bow: :bow: :bow: :jam2:

Mitch is the FREAKING KING!! Mitch slapping everyone!!

I can't believe he just pulled off all of this. He just completely reloaded on the fly without using any real assets. He basically swapped the second best center for the best center, stole Nash for virtual peanuts and a TPE that we thought the team would never use, then shored up the bench with Jamison and Meeks for next to nothing and then locking down a nice player in Jordan Hill for under his market value as well.

If he doesn't win Executive of the Year then I don't know what to say. He's really Executive of All Time. Absurd offseason. Just INSANE!!

:jam2: I cannot believe what he's doing. I can't believe the team we've got.

I don't know what it is that he has

but probably if he told me "I have 5 benjamins and I would trade it to you for a grand"

I would probably say "ok"

He probably could really trade 100 dollars and get 200 dollars back, straight cash deal. Thats kind of amazing.

Wow you really put things in perspective here.

Basically Bynum for Howard (excluding filler). And then Nash for nothing. Then Meeks and Jamison on the cheap... Ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.

Good move! Another scorer off the bench that can create his own shot; additionally lights out from the three when he's open. We need a backup for Kobe; he's perfect. Youthful, athletic, and an improving game. Great...

Hill is not a C. He's undersized for a PF. Playing him at C would be useless.
