Default We need a shooter!

There is still morris peterson out there.Also jalen rose.What about jimmy jackson.We need more spot up shooters for this system to work.We had originally got cardinal for that purpose.But he spends more time hurt or on the bench then hitting threes.Any options im not sure about out there?

Ya, I y'all do have an MLE. The problem both the Griz (and the Bobcats) face is that every team has an MLE (unless they already used it this year). That means, if a team like the Mavs, Spurs, Suns, Pistons, etc throw an MLE at a player, 99 times out of 100 the player will go with them over our lowly non-championship caliber teams.

The other problem is that there are very few players remaining that deserve an MLE and you don't want to give that size contract to just anyone (cough, Cardinal, cough).

Who are the players on the team now that are good spot up shooters? I can only think of Miller. Gay has been improving but he is still just average. Whats Lowry and Kinsey like?

I agree that this needs to be adressed in order to be a running team. Jimmy Jackson would be pretty nice. He fit in well when he was with the Suns.

It is I agree.And in three years I might look retarded.But also the top points right now in the league won't be that good in three years.The new crop of talent will be taking over.I excpect chris paul,deron williams,wade(if you call him a point),maybe raymond felton.Maybe t.j. ford.Tony parker is in top ten.I think he has a great shot at being up there.
