At this point Cuban has to sign D Will. The fans are already pissed off about letting Chandler and Barea go. If he then whiffs on Deron, there will be a fan mutiny in Dallas. I still understand what Cuban was thinking, but as the Triple D Dynasty looks less and less likely, Cuban is looking more and more retarded.
I think Deron signs here. What is more important this offseason is Donnie drafting a decent player in the 1st round, since that hasn't happened in fucking forever.
Really, it shows how good Nash was that his teammates were all eventually overpaid.
And I doubt the Spurs would have reached the WCF this year if RC didn't ship George Hill (a solid combo guard, but IMO not a piece to put you over the top) for Kawhi Leonard (who is a stud) and the rights to Lorbek (who should be an upgrade over Bonner, unless he decides money is more important)
It's too bad all this didn't happen just a year later. Next years draft class features both CP3 and Bynum as unrestricted free agents.
NEW SIG FELLAS. UPDATED TODAY (1/10/2013) AKA DOIN THE LORD'S WORK. THANK ME LATER.
I just can't think of a reason in my mind that justifies giving Deron the max. We'd surely regret it when he's 31. I don't even think he's a max player now, like DoK said there isn't a pg in the league worth the max. I'd rather just pass and build a team the right way, with solid defense and bigs.
Sure but Dirk is aging and you have limited time. If you get Deron and you have Dirk/Deron, then you spend wisely on FA's, you have a competitive team right away.
Deron is definitely tier 2, but when you have a tier 1 like Dirk, you have to get that tier 2 guy.
Sadly, I'm afraid they're both tier 2 at this point. Dirk/Deron just doesn't contend for a championship therefore it's pointless.
It's not pointless - you have to give them a shot. With Dirk and Deron, if you add other players (they will still have some cap space and draft picks) you have a shot.
Point is with guys like Charlie V, Childress...you have 0 chance.
Guys don't forget that in all likelihood we lose Jet this year. From what I understand, they have parted ways. I don't work in the FO though could be wrong, but unlikely.
Ya, that was part of the risk of blowing the team up if you don't land Deron/Dwight (which is an extreme long shot now).
They have to draft well with this pick to start. It is not just this year either. They may have to wait a little bit (until next year, fill out this year's roster with some low cost/decent upside players on small short contracts) until they can really piece it together.
But if you pair Dirk/Deron and you have Roddy who develops some, some decent young bigs (seems like you don't need a dominant post game any more to win)
You are looking at Deron/Roddy/Marion/Dirk/.....with some depth bigs Wright/Ian....you are on a decent path.
Hell, if they can talk Deron into it (like they would have had to talk Dwight/Deron if they came) into taking less than max, you can make a run at a guy like JaVale McGee instead of Dwight and still have a pretty athletic solid team (Deron/Roddy/Marion/Dirk/McGee).
Dallas has Azubuike that is on a cheap contract - and if he is healthy, he is a decent player.
Another out of the box idea is going after Deron/KG. KG would be a great compliment to Dirk and he showed he has some gas left in the tank. If Dallas is willing to give him a long contract, that might be enough to get him to Dallas IMO.
I agree - but he might be enticed if a team gives him a 3/4 year deal.
so dallas should do everything needed to block any possible deal between orlando & brooklyn tbh. dallas is definitely his favorite destination, the nets ain't worth a shit and the only possibility they becoming a legit option here is if they get DH.
nigga is a LOCKED one for dallas if they can prevent them nets from gettin DH tbh
First, it was his fault fault JJ got that contract. JJ's agent proposed a very reasonable extension offer a year earlier and Sarver responded with something like, "You want your next contract, go earn it!" Well, JJ earned it and Sarver was too cheap to leave up to his word. The contract he just signed is albatross, but JJ kept up a high level of play during the 5 year contract he signed with Atlanta that Sarver didn't match.
Also, the "only coach he ever loved" thing is total GNSF bullshit. Amare has made countless public comments indirectly criticizing D'antoni, and Amare gave the Suns the chance to match the Knicks offer (at a small discount). He signed with the Knicks because they offered him $40,000,000 more in guaranteed money than the Suns did.
Anyway, you, in typical GNSF fashion, lack reading comprehension skills and completely butchered the point of my post. My post was talking about how Sarver was raving about possibly having franchise tags to help him keep free agents while having no fuckin idea how a franchise tag worked. A franchise tag enables you to match any offer another team gives, something he had the choice to do with both JJ and Amare but elected not to do. Point being, a franchise tag would have done jack shit for him in either situation and he was just talking out of his ass. Franchise tags don't help owners who are too cheap to give players their market value, they help owners like Dan Gilbert, not Robert Sarver.
I love Dwill but a max deal does seem a bit much in the New CBA
"Greatness is greedy" - Doug Collins after watching Kobe Bryant doing work in the 2001 WCF vs. the SA Spurs.
^in my eyes that would only make him more of one imho
Deron for the max isn't the worst contract in the world. He's not nearly as bad as some of you make it sound. He's had a shit cast around him, with Dirk I could see him shine again.
What about KG, JaVale McGee...You pair Dirk and Deron with them plus based Rod and not so bad (doesn't make up for blowing the team up IMO, but definitely has potential).
I'm interested in KG. what i'd like to do is offer deron about 4 yrs/60 million, sign kg to a 1 year, and then make a play at bynum next year. in a perfect world of course, just my pipedream.
