Especially after watching todays game, it is clear that Singler just doesn't have the all around game to be a starter - he has terrible hands, is a below average defender, below average athleticism and makes too many bad decisions. In saying that, he has a good (and sometimes great) outside shot and has tremendous hustle / scrap / energy. I love him as a bench player (he played really well today) but I still think for this season he is our best option at SF.
This is because I absolutely love having Meeks come on as a 6th man. Meeks is fairly one dimensional but so effective at what he does.
I love KCP as a starter because he is knocking down his outside shot, and plays good to great man and lane defense. The thing that impresses me most about KCP this season is his ability to slow the game down in the half court game, is a very willing passer and lays good tea bball.
I don't like Jerebko as a starter, in fact, I would rather Tolliver start than Jerebko. But at this stage, until we draft someone or make a trade - Singler is the best option
Pretty sure he is a michigan kid - which would help lure him over no doubt, but not sure what we would have to give up. I was hoping a 2nd round pick and butler or something, but think he will cost us more....
I don't see why the Pistons who desperately need a SF wouldn't take a chance on a guy like Michael Beasley. It's certainly possible his time over in China humbled him a bit. His season should be over soon. I would imagine some team would pick him up. Detroit could be a good opportunity for him since he could actually have a chance of playing vs. going to a contender and sitting the bench.
