He's not that good.

But I could see some offering him more money.

I guess this means Bonzi is out of the running in Detroit.

YES!

Charlotte should sign him... NOW. Pay the man.

C - Brezec/Ely
PF - Okafor/May
SF - Morrison/GWallace
SG - Wells/Carroll/AAnderson
PG - Felton/Knight

I think Wells's troublemaking days are over and working for Jordan is the place to be for him.

That's a heck of a steal if they got him for the LLE. He'll be a great fit for them. Instant offense off the bench, Detroit's new Vinnie Johnson.

yes it is E-Wil


this is a crazy signing, a player is actually underpaid, go figure. Flip is no star, but he's a heck of a lot better than the LLE. Nice work Joe

Flip's big knock used to be that he couldn't guard a chair, but when I watched him with the Cavs he didn't seem particularly bad. Good move. Still don't feel like the Pistons are going anywhere.

I dunno if that is his big knock...defense is a problem but his biggest knock if the gun doesnt know when to stop shooting. He's one of those guns where the trigger was designed to go off with the slight touch. Hair trigger? If he can control himself he can be solid. If not? You just added another shooter who will shoot shoot shoot.

I'll take double digits off the bench.

Dyess in the starter role, playing a little small, Flip off the bench.

We are gonna put that ball in tha bucket this year.

The Cavs should have kept this guy instead of getting Wesley.

Cavs got alot of guards in general. Dont know why they got Wesley. Drafted 2 guards with Shannon Brown and Daniel Gibson, they have a healthy Hughes back and seem to like what they see in Stephen Graham. Not to count Eric Snow and the most annoying bench player EVER Damon Jones.

Trade gotta be on the horizon. I dont think they should have kept Flip nor picked up Wesley.

Was I talking about defense? But lets...

Billups: 1st Team All Defense
Tayshaun: 2nd Team All Defense
Sheed: Missed 2nd Team by 1 Vote
Nazr: Good low post defender
Dyess: Adequate to good low post defender
Hunter: Excellent pressure defender

That is true, I just thought they should keep Flip because he seemed to be the only one to take and make clutch shots besides Bron. Though his play fell off in the playoffs. Maybe they think Shannon or Gibson is capable. Of course, now that I think of it, Bron did have some game-winning assists to Ilgauskaz.
