Last season he averaged 1.3 blocks per 25 minutes. That's not bad.

I'd say it would be his limited offensive game, he being on the wrong side of 30, and being undersized.

Although, I did want Maxiell for quite awhile because of that type of activity right there. From a Lakers standpoint, I think Hill brings the same type of activity, only he's 6'11-7', and has a somewhat decent skillset offensively with his short hook and 10-12 ft jumper.

Hill brings similar energy, but he's also proving to be pretty injury prone.

We need another PF besides Kelly on the team.

Gooden is mostly just a body... I'd prefer someone with a skillset in some particular field. There's a reason Gooden couldn't find playing time even in Milwaukee.

I would prefer that PF to have some sort of offensive ability, particularly a shooter.

Yeah, I saw that and didn't think that was very good. I'm dumb. That's a really good number. Check out where he's ranked in blocks/48min. Also check out a few other funny and shocking things on that list. Brook Lopez above D12 and Bledsoe the only guard, let alone a pg. Awesome!

Al Harrington anyone?

He came back from his 2012 knee injury around Feb. 2013. Then Vaughn shut him down to allow the younger players to get some run.

It’s a coach’s decision. I’ve talked to Al just about the remaining games that we have. He’s helped us in the wins at Philly and New Orleans. He’s proven that he can still play this game at a high level, and I’m going to give the opportunity to play to some of our young guys and give them some experience. I think he has experience at this game a little bit already.


If he's been working out and keeping in shape and his knee strengthened, I wouldn't mind him at the Vet. Min'.

As I said before, count me WAY in for Maxiell. I've always liked his intensity and D. He's younger and not a big jerk like Kenyon Martin. To me he's just more serviceable in general. I think he'd be a great pick up if we can get him. He's not a D' Antoni type player but I don't really care because I don't think a lot of D' Antoni anyway. Someone has to play defense and it might as well be one of the bigs. They already have a stretch 4 to develop in our draft pick up. Between that guy and Gasol and Hill picking up the garbage points, there's enough offense already. Get a guy who can slug it out down low and bring some damn toughness. Maxiell fits that to a tee.

Very cool list. I find it not at all surprising that Coward didn't give us more effort than that. And I think if Lamar doesn't re-sign with the Clippers they're REALLY going to miss that defense from Bledsoe and from Odom off the bench.

Cavaliers Considering An Amnesty Waiver Bid For Mike Miller

Image

By Adrian Wojnarowski

The Cleveland Cavaliers are strongly considering making an amnesty waiver bid to claim former Miami Heat forward Mike Miller, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Miami used the amnesty provision to free itself of the $12.8 million left on Miller's contract over the next two seasons. The decision will save the Heat significant money in luxury-tax payments, but the organization is still responsible for paying the balance of Miller's contract.

Cleveland has made several free-agency signings, including center Andrew Bynum, guard Jarrett Jack and forward Earl Clark, with a focus on returning to the playoffs next season. Miller is close friends with LeBron James, and the Cavaliers are planning to make a run to re-sign him in 2014 free agency.

Any team with salary-cap space can place a blind bid to claim the player, with the highest bid securing him. Teams can claim the player's full salary but must have available cap room or they can place a partial bid with their available cap space. For example, if Cleveland places a bid for $2 million on Miller – and it's the highest – the Cavaliers would be responsible for paying $2 million per season of the money left on Miller's contract. Miami would have to pay the rest.

The deadline for placing a waiver bid for Miller is 5 p.m. ET Thursday.

If Miller goes unclaimed in the process, he's a free agent and eligible to sign everywhere except back with Miami. Miller played a significant role in the Heat's back-to-back NBA championships and run to three straight Finals appearances.

Miller, 33, has played 12 NBA seasons, including stops with Orlando, Memphis, Minnesota, Washington and Miami. Despite several pivotal performances for Miami in key playoff and Finals games over the past two years, injuries often kept him out of the lineup, or playing hurt.

The Mavericks are closing in on a contract with Samuel Dalembert, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
According to Stein, the Mavs are still in on the Greg Oden sweepstakes but felt like they had to sign Dalembert after losing out on Dwight Howard and declining to sign Andrew Bynum.

At least he isn't going to Miami

Blocks are not good stats first off and if you have to stretch the minutes to get to a decent number that's not realistic.

Remember that over 1/2 of all blocks do not result in a change in possession and chasing 15 shots a game to get 2 puts him out of position a lot which causes other problems on defense.

Oh I know and agree, Roos. I'd much rather have a PF like a healthy Varejao and a center like a Marc Gasol. Both are elite position defenders, cerebral defenders, and great on hedging and playing the PnR, yet neither are shot blockers at all.

For our budget, i think an athletic, mobile fly swatter like Maxiell would be about as good as we could hope for is the mindset i'm speaking from. You're right though, flyswatters need to be disciplined or their chasing blocks disrupts the D more than the potential for getting a block. maxiell seems pretty disciplined from what I've seen.

I know I've posted 100 times about wanting to go after Larry Sanders next season to be a cheap rim protector next to whatever stars we can bring in.. I've also been on the Brandon Jennings bandwagon.. I'd like to increase our chances at signing Sanders next summer by getting him at the deadline.. Jennings on his 4.5M QO + Sanders for Pau.. Pau should have inflated his value by then & we may even be able to get some picks to go with them.. Maybe Nash gets included in the deal to get his salary off the books for next year.. Puts us in a great spot for next summer.. We still get to wipe the cap clean but we add Sanders & Jennings to our list of guys that might come back for less than they're worth to be a part of a great team.. If we start next offseason by getting Melo, Lebron, or George.. We could possibly talk Sanders, Jennings, Kobe, & Hill into coming back cheap. & I think we can replace Pau with Dirk.. If we build a superteam next summer I really like our chances of getting Dirk for cheap.. He couldn't make it more clear that he's playing 100% for rings now..

Jennings/Kobe/Melo/Dirk/Sanders.. Bring back Farmar, Young, Hill, maybe Johnson, LO if he ends up coming here, maybe Ron coming back? That team would be insane to watch..
