Add that to the fact that Beas doesn't rebound well for his position and his game just turns me off. I'd rather go after a guy like OJ Mayo (who I think we should have reached for) or one of the young 2-guards in the league.
I am of the thinking that we need a backcourt scorer that can handle the pill and shoot threes more than anything else [to take the pressure off of Rose].
I see your point(s) as well though--nice debating with you sir...
AGreed there. That's our biggest need.
But I say our second biggest need (or our biggest need, but more generalized than that) is a player whose sole role is to score. We have the defensive structure in place. I want a "free lance" guy that can score. Melo would be ideal, IMO. But that's a HUGE pipe dream.
