Re: So now they're talking about extending Deng's contract? WTF?
I'd rather keep Deng on. Unless he wants to keep making 10+ (which he could probably still get somewhere). He'd be great to keep around, but only if gives us a locality discount so we can add another piece too.
I'm tired of hearing people that want to make Jimmy the 3. IMO he provides a much bigger mismatch at the 2. Few 2 guards could handle Jimmy's length, but he's still versatile enough to play him on 3s as well. And Deng is still a great defender at the 3. Both can play long minutes as well. Those 2 guys on the court with Derrick Rose would be a sight to see.
Really just need to get a backup center and a shooter. The center can be found in the draft for sure.
