Default How can we dump Primoz

He's a nice guy, but cmon, my newfoundland with hip displasia would be a better center. Can we package him with DA and Othella?

Can't see anyone wanting him, even for a second.

Next offseason he, Harrington and Anderson all expire. Guess their only value is as expiring deals and they are small deals for this. We also would have to replace them with active players since May and Morrisson are injured for the year.

I assume we'll extend Herrmann, McInnis and Hollins so will in all likelyhood only resign one of those 3 above or dump them all and pick up a free agent along with our draft picks.

I actually don't mind our depth in the big man department just think we need a starter to go with Okafor as Hollins etc. are decent back-ups.

Because the team has two players who are out for the entire season, I don't understand why Stern and company wouldn't grant the Cats an exception which would allow the team to sign at least one new player to cover for May and Morrison (and replace Brezec).

I don't know how we can dump him. I think Okafor and Mokeski tried sending him a message by blacking his eye and breaking his nose, but those darn Slovenians are so stubborn.

There seems to be some kind of loyalty to Primoz on the part of coach and FO.

Why dump him, this guy has proven that he can rise from ashes, no reason he can't do it again.

What??? In the years he's been with us he's been nothing but a big, slow, pick and pop hacker with no defensive skill. I would take anybody for him.

Actually the first year or two he was with us he played pretty nicely for us. I think he might slowly come around.

Voshkal, Ely neither were as highly rated but at least could defend.

With his contract up this year I am sure we will get another big man either through draft or trade at the latest in the off-season and at least both Dudley and Davidson are looking usefull. Later in the season they may be starting more.

We need to keep him around for his unintentional comedy. Did anyone watch him Saturday night? He is off the charts funny when he gets pumped up and/or angry.

In his defense, he did have a pretty good game.

I loved seeing him so pumped. We need that energy all the time from everyone.
