True , this was a good " let's come back to reality" post ... there is little we can do this offseason to adress our needs ...

^ but what about their D? It's not bad, but it's not particularly good either. And with Nash and Kobe in the backcourt, we need good defenders, especially against PnR and in rotation action.

still old and wouldnt want to spend money on him when we have much bigger holes at other positions...
i was for his signing before but i think that is to late now...maybe if we round the roster and sign him as the last spot on the roster...now at this point i wouldnt spend money on him...

We can give out as many vet. min contracts as we want. It's not about spending money on him and not being able to give it to other players. Him signing for the minimum, doesn't alter that plan.

It's not that simple at all. Right now our big rotation is:
Hill/Kelly
Gasol/Sacre

What about that gives you any type of confidence to turn away ANY player? If we're stuck with Gasol as our Center this season, we might as well get a tough minded PF so that SOMEONE down low plays defense and pushes people around.

And if Dwight stays, then it's STILL important to find a replacement backup PF because Earl Clark and Antawn Jamison are gone.

Kenyon Martin will get 1/2 of the mini MLE, about 1.7 million. We can't afford that. He is out of our price range...not to mention the fact that he wants to play for a ring...if he is going to settle for a lottery team, it certainly won't be for back-up minutes at the minimum.
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

With Dwight gone we could really use some KMart right now, hopefully he signs with us for a year.

If the Spurs are after him, I'd have to think he goes there before he even thinks about coming here. Possible championship > possibly making the playoffs.

We need all the bigs we can get to run hack-a-Dwight. I like Martin for his D, and that is a big need right now. Since we can't really go out and get younger/athletic wings might as well get slower tough guys.

Wouldn't mind him at all. He's still a very solid defender (hell with our current roster, he might be our best defender lol) and he brings the toughness we lost letting MWP go.

Hearing the #Knicks are a favorite to re-sign Kenyon Martin, but still fairly quiet on that front. With Elton Brand out of view, K-Mart key.

I wonder what for. I'm guessing two years at the minimum.
