Default Do we really need Vince?

There's so much hype about Vince Carter coming to Orlando, but do we really need him?

I say we should just be patient and go after someone much cheaper but can also get the job done. Some along the lines of Rashard Lewis, Gerald Wallace?

These players are much cheaper, and they are pretty decent scorers. Gerald isnt the best scorer, but his coming along and he's still young.

If someone could share the "1st option role" with Dwight we could be a contender for the East. If where going to make a trade before the deadline im hoping its for a pretty decent point guard. But i doubt we'll be making any trades before the deadline.

I say we just wait on a player that is still quiet young and can score the ball by not taking as many shots a Vince.

Bottom line, i dont think Vince is our guy.

What do you think, Vince should come to O-TOWN?

No.. thats it.. He'll wreck the team i think, Gerald Wallace wouldn't work though bcoz we still have Trevor Ariza playing and i think Ariza will be along the lines of Wallace in a couple of years.. I however think that Rashard Lewis would suit the team nicley

JMEWLS you want gerald wallace so bad ha. I think he would be a good fit too, but i also see Ariza developing into a younger version of him if not better. I think our patience will pay off. Vince isnt right for the team at this time. He is now nothing but a scorer and doesnt make the players around him any better. I would still love to see Ray Allen come to town. I think after another down season for the Sonics he will be available. Lets just save money for when Lebron becomes a free agent in 2010 or whenever it is lol!!

I reckon he would be a perfect fit, can you imagine our swingman duo... Ariza and Wallace, thats fantastic defensively and also they'll be able to score and get the ball inside. Only problem i have in them is the 3point shooting, they are not strong 3point shooters but i guess you can alway improve.

Ray Allen would be very nice to, either one of the Duo in Seattle would be very nice. Both are great perimeter shooters, which is something that where lacking. But would prefer Lewis, based on he can block better and can put the pressure off Dwight and grab some boards.

I too prefer Lewis over Allen also because of Age. We will get a top flight scorer this summer for sure.
