Helljumper wrote:I know it's just the D-League, but I just found out that DJO is killing it down there. He's the 8th leading scorer, but of the players above him, most have only played a few games. 21 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 1.5 steals, 44% from the field, 40% from threes. I doubt it happens, but at this point I'd be willing to give him a look. If by some chance he pans out, I'd like a line-up like this:

Nash / Duhon / Blake
Meeks / Johnson-Odom / Morris
Bryant / World Peace / Ebanks
Hill / Jamison
Howard / Gasol

Well regardless of DJO, I want to see a starting line-up of Nash, Meeks, Kobe, Hill, and Dwight. It gives us even more holes on the bench, but those could be filled by a Pau trade.

Yeah I have a hard time believing EVERYTHING he does translates to the NBA just because of his tiny stature, but I seriously think this kid's athleticism is the most intriguing prospect we've seen in a while. I'm not sold on him contributing right now, but it might be worth a shot. The kid obviously has some talent.

i wish DJO could play instead of Morris once. from what i know DJO is a better 3 point shooter, hes shorter but stronger quicker and more athletic. he can be successful. look at will bynum the guy is 6 foot nothing and is just strong and athletic. he defends using his quickness and strength (a solid combo i think better than height) and can hit the 3 ball as well as get in the lane. DJO isnt as good but has the tools. we should develop him as we are morris and i think he has more upside as a combo guard than morris just bc morris cant shoot well.

morris is a pg. djo has better tools to be a combo guard just like glock did. way rather have djo and glock than morris as theres no way anyone is gunna stop guys like cp3 deron westbrook parker rose rondo etc. but at least they can do something on O. and DJO can body up bc hes quick and strong which might bother them and make them work more than morris would.

i think its only bc 1) we have a ton of PG's (terrible ones on d) 2) were still trying to build chemistry and dont want to make it worse 3) blake isnt back yet.

id love west to sign here and start. hes the perfect combo guard for us. can defend, shoot the 3, and run the 2nd unit imo. i think his rep really hurt him and us signing him as were trying to form a team still

^^^I understand why we're not showing interest (roster spot) but the rep thing is just deserved though. I know some his former team says alot of nice things bout West but they could just be paying lip service, I really do think he is disruptus in the locker room and we clearly do not need anymore locker room problem as is.

even if we get lesser value, i think we have to do it in order to get 1) smaller more flexible contracts 2) get either duhon or blake off our books 3) get guys that are hungry 4) get quicker in key positions and 5) maybe get a draft pick in return so we can make future deals


:bow:

Yeah, I just came to terms with this. I think it's a matter of getting the right deal. Mitch has a knack for acting like his players aren't on the block and then pulling on the right offer. Crossing my fingers.

It will be sad to see Pau go :man6: but he isn't worth his $19M

Rudy Gay? Yes, please. Would be a great addition to this roster. Athleticism at the SF position and maybe we could land another piece too. I'd go for it. Just have to come up with the right deal but I feel like it would be a good move for us.

Yeah, let's not act like this is in the realm of possibility. Even the high guy I saw down the street would know not to take this deal if he was the Grizzlies.

They got rid of Delonte West too. They also benched Darren Collison in favor of Derek Fisher.

Definitely wouldn't mind having him backing up MWP, he's very active defender who can hit the occasional three. Oh and he's also a pretty good finisher.
