It's true, this is a steal! This kid is very young, makes a low salary, and has potential out the roof! He is rumored to not play defense, which is what I think Demarr was sitting the pine for so long for, so I'm not sure how Karl will handle it. But getting him now, rather than in the middle of the season, will give the coaches a chance to work with him in training camp and get him on board with what we do. He has all the physical skills to be a good defender/shooter/slasher to complement Melo. Granted, it might take a while, but what's the risk? 1.5 mil., that's half of what Elson will make if we match his offer, so that says it all. This could be a huge deal for us, and coming at such a low price!
