Third amnesty casualty of the day takes place with Bucks letting Drew Gooden go. Others were Miami's Mike Miller & Toronto's Linas Kleiza.

Don't want Gooden.

I haven't watched Kleiza recently. If he's anything like he was in Denver, I'd be interested.

Not interested in either really. Kleiza has been straight garbage since his Denver days and Gooden just isn't good.

After all of our off-season success in getting talent, I think we can do better.

Gooden doesn't bother me that much..... he's a big who's displayed some toughness in the past and is an adequate face up big. Better than playing Sacre any heavy minutes IMHO.....

Gooden has been injury prone but worst case scenario we could use him as a body. IMO we still need a 4/5 and some kind of hybrid 3/4 a la Kirilenko. Not sure who's left though.

I'd much rather go after Maxiell. And then if we can, I'd put in a bid on James Johnson from Sacramento. He's a RFA, but they might not have any plans to keep him. I'd at least give it a shot for the minimum.

Pass on Gooden - he is a knucklehead. Very low hoops IQ.

I'd take Gooden. This past season he was relegated to being the 15th man on the team, but when given time, he can play.

IF he was playing like he did in Den, Tor wouldn't be cutting him and plus on top of his sucking, he's been injury prone since the day he signed that absurd of a contract.

Linas Kleiza has also cleared waivers and is a free agent. Strong possibility he heads back overseas

Kleiza used to be really solid. he apparently left his game in Europe before he returned to the NBA in Toronto. He's painfully bad now.

Gooden? No thanks. Lazy, low iq, and unaware. He was solid in Cleveland though.
