We don't need another veteran. We need our youth to develop NOW so we have a chance at contending while Rip and Chauncey are still in their prime. Keep in mind we already have Flip Murray as the third PG.
Chauncey is going to be the veteran mentor to Rodney. He's the leader of our team and we don't need Gary Payton to come in and play the role of teacher. Payton is better off going to Boston where he can get some actual playing time and teach Rajon Rondo.
