On the paper this team looks good. We added size,defense and rebounding. We also added a shooter in James Jones and signed a solid point guard in Telfair.
But I have some problems with it. Dalembert may not be a good fit. I know he is a great shot blocker and rebounder but he also has a tough personality.
He may be angry if he doesn't get the ball enough and quit on defense because of that (it wouldn't be the first time that happened).Also it's a question how much we would have to pay him. I see so many crazy offers for centers around the league,what would you do if he asked $10 mil. and you couldn't sign him cheaper than that ?
Also I don't think James Jones would come here. He is probably happy in Miami.
I like the idea of putting Shumpert at the PG.
Also I like the idea of getting rid of D'Antoni
You will get a pass from me. Like I said,this team looks good on paper but I don't think we could sign Jones and I think we would have to overpay for Dalembert (who I think is a bad fit) just like we did for Chandler.
But maybe you are right.Maybe this team would be better than what we have now.Too bad we'll never find out.
Props for writing all of this. It surely took you much time.
Try to candidate for the Magic GM,even though you have never worked in a club before you can't be any worse than Otis Smith
