Backup Point Guard?
 
Who do you think we should get as a backup point? Think about these aspects. We need a veteran backup who has experience, who brings leadership on and off the court, and is willing to be Conley's backup. Also, to help push Conley to be a thread to his starting job.

I always liked Jacque Vaughn. He is the kind of PG that is always under control and would help Conley a lot IMO. I don't know if he is still under contract with the Spurs.

Anthony Carter perhaps?

We could just send Stoudamire (Damon) out there. Just give him a uni to put on under his suit and when we need him to come on he can just jump up, rip his suit off, a la Superman, and then save the day.

I like Carter better than Vaughn. Both are old as hell, but Carter can play better D.

I was surprised that Carter shot an awful % from 3 last year. I thought he "learned" to shoot when he got to Denver.

What about Juan Dixon or Royal Ivey?

I don't like Dixon. Ivey, I don't know, I haven't seen him play enough to make a fair judgement. I also like Anthony Carter, he could be a good addition too.

Whats wrong wit dixon. He is a good size, he can shoot, he has a good iq, has good passing ability and he knows how to play his role. He is also barely 30 which means that he is just coming out of his prime.

I watched in the raptors several times a few years ago, and the offensive flow when Dixon was at the point was really bad from what I remember. He is supposed to be all the things you mention, but then when it comes to team game, i never felt he was the right man to be at the point.

Ok well I have only seen him live from when he played at washington year ago. So I cant comment on him from toronto.

Since Lowry turned into Carroll, and a good backup at the 3 was needed, I can't complain. But as long as Conley improves, Lowry would still be the perfect backup.
