Re: The official "bring back" Anthony Parker thread
Anthony Parker - Chandler - all the names thrown out here are not the names of players that make this a "immediate playoff team". Chandelr might be debatable - but he is not coming here period.
I mean even the Cavs, Bucks, and Pacers jsut got a lot better.
What I think you "all" fail to appreciate is that the Coach D - may himeself be the root cause for a 5 win improvment. Getting this existing roster to play "mid league level" D is worth 5 wins in the east. That is still only 30 wins looking from the outside.
But no team plans to tank. No management will even consistently try to tank.
Further they just signed DeRozans option, Johnson as well.
A team like this needs to show some stedy improvement; hope to the current roster of player so they even "have the potential" to be a winning core if they keep the nucleus together.
There is equal danger in "trying to tank to last place for Harrison Barnes (or other) " if you end up becoming the LA Clippers north.
I would love AP for 1 year at $4M or 1 year plus an option. He is exactly the player this young core needs.
