    Nice post. I will be very interested in seeing what Samb and Johnson do. If I remember correctly Sammy Meija tore up the Summer league last year and almost made the roster. Wasn't he the leading scorer for Detroit?

    I read elsewhere that Sammy Mejia has an ankle injury and won't be able to play.

    Also I think if Hunter does retire(or if Billups gets traded) Acker has a good shot at making the team.

    That's too bad about Sammy. He deserved a chance. Didn't he play in Europe last year? If so he probably made more money there than he would here.

    I forgot all about that Chauncey's little brother thing. Didn't somebody else have a brother that was trying to get into the league too?

    yeah, I think he's looked pretty good in the tiny bit I saw. Looks like sharpe is gonna play the 3, so meija prob wont see a contract ,but meija seems like a hard worker and generally solid. you never know. Aker has no shot of making the roster unless something happens

    its frustrating for me to hear after the draft that we picked who we did because we asked players if they would go to Europe before we drafted them....
    I dont see why we didnt just grab CDR or bill walker and let it play out, but I guess joe knows what hes doing.
    cmon joe, trent plastered, sheed and hunter (SnT or whatever- who would then retire) for amare and ropin lopez!

    So what do you guys think of Dee Brown being on the roster. Former Illinois guy who went to the Jazz for a while. He can shoot the lights out, other than that he may be a little under sized. Do you think he has a shot at making the roster?

    Big Ben's little brother was on the team last year or the year before. Can't believe I weigh 15-20 lbs less than Cheikh.
