    The Knicks had to release Tony Wroten after that trade. He's a guy we should put into our summer league and take a look it. He could be a back up PG.

    Strongly agree!! ^^

    He can drive and defend, big body,

    We have enough shooting off the bench to cover that weakness, I think he can play 10 - 12 minutes behind Reggie

    Saw this today. Looks like Meeks will finally be gone. I was always against that signing.

    [QUOTE]Adrian Wojnarowski: After the draft, Detroit will continue to shop guard Jodie Meeks to find him a new team, league sources tell @The Vertical.

    Yes - you were ^^ I think you were more against the amount of $$ rather than against Meeks himself though right?

    KCP has progressed more than most people predicted which elevated him into the starting SG spot, in which Meeks was signed to play.

    Too injury prone, and has a reputation as a 3pt specialist yet he only shot 35% for us from deep.

    If we can turn Meeks into a backup PG, then that will be a win.

    Brandon Jennings unrestricted free agent............................................. ................... Why not? ha

    Yeah, it was mainly the money they gave him. But I watched him a lot when he was on the Lakers and just wasn't all that impressed. I say send him elsewhere. I'd love to get Jennings. I think there's probably a starting role out there for him somewhere though. Now Rubio is going to be traded too. So that kind of works in our favor. There's not a lot of teams looking for a starting PG. Possibly Dallas or Sacramento. I'd be happy just to get a guy like Augustin back.

    SVG wants to add two more big men this off season.

    J.Jack could be a GREAT backup to Reggie. His deep shooting and strong body would work real well with our 2nd unit.

    I like him as a backup. I still think they might look at a player like Jennings first. One of these guys that wants to start is not going to end up with a starting job. The Kings need a PG. They aren't going to keep Rondo. I could see Rubio getting traded there or Jennings possibly going there. There's not a lot of other teams that really need a PG. Maybe Dallas. That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    Jennings would be nice.

    Jack seems cooked, hasn't shot well the last few ears.

    Augustin could work, in tandem with Gbinije, but he's a last resort type.

    I think Augustin has played really well everywhere he's been. He fits right in with what the Pistons are doing.

    Yeah Augustin would not be the worst option, he can deff play a role for us.

    I would prefer Jennings over both though, he does like Detroit and has a good relationship with our players. But... is he ready to concede to being one of the best backup PG's in this league?

    He will never be a starter on a team that is serious about contending

    Jennings will go where they offer him the most money for sure. But there's only a few teams that will be throwing major money after PG's. If he doesn't land there it gives them a chance.

    It appears like SVG really has some ties to the Magic still lol. We just made another trade with them. Meeks is headed there for a 2nd round pick.

    I do see how they could use him as a backup though. They just moved Oladipo. They'll probably keep Fournier as the starter. He's restricted but I'm sure they'll match. Meeks will give them some depth.

    Ish Smith, 3/18. I dig it. He runs an offense. One of 15 guys to average 10 assists per 100 possessions last year. Reggie was another.

    That's a good deal. He should be a solid backup and could even start if he really needed to. It's definitely an upgrade.
