Orlando??? they have nothing we need..
Also Stop saying mike miller ..we have sasha,karl,rad,luke ..they are all that type of player
btw Nj has nothing we want..VC is a punk ( soft) ..
The knicks are interesting..the problem is they have no one who can defend both 3 and 2 guards ala ( artest, battier ect) and hit the 3
CAVS? They have nothing..
Bulls have ty thomas,nocioni..but they will be wanting to axe gordon
I would be looking at the bucks ..and trying to get redd..at all cost..that would open the door for Kobe Pau and Bynum ..
they would have to play us honest ..
Man, I like what you're talking about with Redd. That would be an insane offensive lineup for sure. But I'd take Marion - I've liked the idea since it came up this summer. I think this is all pretty speculative. But bottom line is: Marion's a much better fit here than in Miami, and LO is a much better fit in Miami than here.
Stumbling block is Marion wanting even more money than he's getting now, whereas LO is willing to take less. But I don't see ANYONE shelling out the megabucks for Marion this offseason. There just aren't any teams that want to pay 12-15 mill for a very good, former all star SF headed towards the downside of his career. If there isn't the competition for his services, then we have the inside track. If we could pay 10 mill a year for 4 years, basically probably what it would take to keep LO or just a little more, but we get a starter at SF, our weakest position, then we come out ahead. I like Ariza but he will be looking for MLE type money at 5 mill a year. So then you've still got a three-headed monster at SF, and LO coming off the bench at 4 for the next 4-5 years. If you get Marion, Ariza can be dealt or let go at year's end because you have the player Ariza is trying to be already. IMO Marion saves money potentially because you won't be paying salary for both LO and Ariza. You get one guy to do the job for two. That's smart.
