Jens has yet to fill out a bio.
yeah man likewise!
I agree with everything you said, Barnes is a solid pick up but we did commit alot of money to him, especially when he had a very average finals series, he missed something like 23 shots in a row, hopefully he lives up to his contract.. Dirk deal was well deserved, and Deron too, wish we got a younger PG though..
Hammons is going to be interesting, hopefully they give him a good chance to crack the rotation this season, i loved Mejiri but he's too old to be a rookie!
I'm hearing the rumors that Greg Monroe could be traded soon, and i've seen a lot of people thinking he could come to Dallas or Charlotte (both my teams haha), thoughts on him coming here? I like the idea, we wouldn't have very good defense with him and Dirk on the floor but he's still young and was a franchise player before Drummond went to Detroit, plus it would give us a solid young core going forward with Monroe, Barnes, Wes and possibly Curry if he works out, we;'d just need a PG!
I like Bogut, especially with him being on a 1 year deal.. Zaza was such a bargain to GSW for 2.9m!
I loved what Indiana did, they are going to be very good this year! Dallas will make playoffs but same again like a 7 seed team..
Yeah i'm still on from time to time, not as much as i used too! What your thoughts on the offseason?
13. New York
I'm actually thinking why the Mavs don't just sign Jeremy Tyler? He's been playing really well in the summer league and he has a good long body that will work well replacing Zaza depending on match ups..
I've loved Washingtons offseason, they added so much depth on the wings and brought in guys that can score off the bench, plus Oubre could be a steal, he's had a great summer league.. Jared Dudley, Gary Neal and Alan Anderson are all great guys and they will more than make up for the loss of Pierces points.. PLus all these guys are on 1 year deals which is genius considering they want to have lots of cap next offseason for Durant.. I think a lot of people are underrating the Wizards this coming season, i'm expecting a top 4 finish..
Charlotte has done alright, i like Kaminsky and Aaron Harrison has been a steal of a player. I don't know how i felt about trading Vonleh, he has so much potential still but Batum will be nice. I liek the pick ups of Jeremy Lamb also, i don't know if they will make top 8, but it should be better than last season..
yeah it seems like Deron will know this is his last chance, he's a forgotten player in the league and i'm going to be honest, i'm no fan massive fan of him, but i'm looking forward to seeing what he can do in Dallas.
But you're right, our back court seems like it's ready, but the front court is a mess. I think we'll end up signing Javale McGee, and while i'm also not a fan of him, i think he's got the perfect opportunity here in Dallas, this is his last chance to have a career in the NBA. PLus he has the fundamentals to bring what Jordan does with his athleticism, long body and a defensive minded player, hopefully he works out.
Justin Anderson had an awesome game in the first Summer League with 20 something points and 8 rebounds! I was really happy with that! But then today he had a very quiet game with like 4 points.. On the other hand Powell has had two big games now, maybe he could be decent, but he needs to bulk up i think.
Yeah bro, i'm really mad and disappointed..
Jason Terry back to Dallas potentially?! I would be so happy! He's the reason why i started going for the Mavericks!
Yeah, you are right about our PG situation, and yeah Beverly going for 6m when he's not really the best of distributor is a bit much. I love Devon Harris and you're right about his capabilities of being able to run the show and what he did with B.Wright but i just feel that he's a great spark to have coming off the bench.. We are looking into Jeremy Lin apparently, but we don't actually have that much cap left.. How about just bringing back Jameer? I love Barea and what he has done for the franchise but i feel like he's not the guy that he was back when we won..
Yeah another big man off the bench is what we need, i don't feel like Powell is a safe 2nd option, just because of his physicality, like imagine if Jordan has an injury, we will get dominated by other bigs if Powell is our starter playing 30+.. Bismack is headed to Toronto, Koufus is gone but was to expensive for us anyway, so maybe Stat could be a go?
I also like Teletovic from the Nets, he's a FA and would be nice coming off the bench behind Dirk.. Also, i really wish we had of let Jefferson walk and sign McDaniels instead! But it sounds like we don't have that much cap left anyway!
Mo Williams, Norris Cole, KJ McDaniels, Bismack Biyombo and Derrick Williams all guys i want to pursue to fill that bench!
Let this sink in! haha
