Default Area of concern

We are really doing ourselves a disservice by not addressing our bench through the D-League. Plenty of teams are doing it and especially in Chicago's case, it's really working. Why continue to have guys like Mike Bibby waste a roster spot? We don't owe him anything. Cut him and sign a big man or a back up pg. If Lin is unavailable come playoff time, we're going to be really suspect in the backcourt. Make Allan Houston earn his paycheck!

Lin will be unavailable for the 1st round.

And I agree with you on that one. Cut someone and look for the talent in D-League.
Gerald Green has been great for the Nets.
12.7 points and 3.5 rebounds is pretty good for a D-League player.

I do recall saying we should sign Gerald Green for the last 2 or 3 years now. I got ripped for it. How's that looking now? Rameek in particular tried to tear me a new one lol

I mean it's not a guarantee they will come in and be an immediate impact but it is a possibility. You're getting a young, hungry player who is literally playing for his career every night against guys with guaranteed contracts who probably don't know anything about them. With Mike Bibby, you already know what you're getting...a scrub!

Gotta agree, Bibby this season is a package deal for having Woodson.

Lightbulb Who do you tink will be returning next year?

Of the roster we have now... I predict only thse players will be on our opening day roster.

SF: Melo - Not going anywhere

PF: Amare - Depending on how well he and Melo play together in the playoffs, he will either be traded (Hopefully for an established PF who doesn't require the ball all the time. Somebody who scores off his own rebounds and plays hard defense.) or staying.

C: Chandler - Better not go anywhere!!! (Unless traded for D. Howard)

SG: Fields - Woodson will make sure his whipping boy doesn't comeback... Maybe use the money to try and re-sign J.R Smith

PG: Lin - I'm still not sold on using our MLE to retain him. I would rather have a cheaper established PG off the FA's

PG: Bibby - Retiring to San Fran to be a lesbian
PG: Dougie - Gone baby gone... Maybe used as a side dish in a trade
PG: Baron - Gone unless he excepts the Vets Min

SG: Shump - Staying
SG/F: J.R - Depends on what we do with Fields and Lin if we'll be able to afford him
PF: Jorts - He'll have one more season as our prospect
PF/C: J. Jeffries - Hopefully returning... Can't believe i'm saying that. He is cheap salary wise and has heart... especially on the defensive end
SF: Novak - Love his 3's and his cheap salary. Hopefully he stays

So what do you guys think?

You should open a new thread for this. Worth a healthy discussion
