Default How dissapointed are you that we didn't aquire Artest or Ariza?

Is this a damaging blow that we didn't get one of these guys? Obviously, I think one of these guys would've helped tremendously, but as of this point, what do you guys think would be a good plan C/D/E, etc?

I just hope that we don't get in the position where several more guys fall through the cracks, and we end up overpaying someone out of the desire to get someone............anyone.

Names such as Rasheed Wallace and Matt Barnes are looking like attractive options as of right now.

I'm not disappointed at all, we have no clue how those players would have worked out in Cleveland so you can never tell. I personally didn't like the prospect of Artest coming to Cleveland. I feel the main benefit of him coming to Cleveland was to solely keep him going to L.A. I just personally haven't liked his game the last year or two. He's became a bonafide chucker.

I hope we can court Matt Barnes. He made just under $750,000 last year and he's probably around worth the same money as Ariza and he's very capable of playing just like Ariza. Matt Barnes was my first choice before Ariza becuase I felt there is a better chance of courting him to Cleveland than Ariza. Especially since Ariza stated he wanted $9 million a year. And the fact Barnes got paid almost $2.5 less than Ariza did last year. Here are their stats side by side...

Trevor Ariza
24.4 MPG
46.0% FG%
31.9% 3P%
71.0% FT%
1.7 SPG
0.3 BPG
4.3 RPG
1.8 APG
8.9 PPG

Matt Barnes
27.0 MPG
42.3% FG%
34.4% 3P%
74.3% FT%
0.7 SPG
0.3 BPG
5.4 RPG
2.8 APG
10.2 PPG

...we should really go after Barnes hard.

lmao, Ariza's impact doesn't usually show up on the boxscore. Surely you know that if you were interested in him. Good luck with Barnes.
