I assume we would find time for a player like that, but does he get minutes over Chase? Shved? even Roy? Even if he does, how many minutes does he play? Are those minutes enough to warrant trading someone like Derrick Williams for him? We feel we are in such need for a SG right now, because with the injuries, we are. But do we have such a need later in the season?
    Both Reddick and Budinger need new deals. Reddick will cost more. So that is why many here feel sticking with Budinger is a better deal. He is just a slight downgrade. As for Shved, he is on the cheap, so he is of no consequence. Besides, he can play 3 positions. Always handy to have a guy like that for injuries.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    what is with the Beal fascination? The dude is supposed to be this awesome shooter, yet stunk in college, and sucks balls in the pro's at it.

    So...you agree that we dont need Redick when healthy then?

    we don't need him I suppose, but I only say that because I think he will cost too much to retain, versus Budinger. That was a huge loss honestly, none of us knew how big a loss until our only shooter went down until Love gets stronger, and Shved gains steam.

    I agree with that. We are missing Bud.

    The kid is 19. He played one year of college ball and now is on the worst team in the league. Yes, his percentages are awful from the field, but he has a nice shot. He shoots 85% from the stripe. The issue is that he's taking too many long jumpers. Once he's acclimated to the league and figures out shot selection (or gets a better coach to help him), he'll be just fine.

    Here's one of Beal's good games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onjbYnKznlI

    Here's Beal not backing down against Brandon Jennings: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbIHA...endscreen&NR=1

    My biggest worry with Beal is that he reminds me of Foye(who I actually wouldn't mind having on this team.)

    PSD Grammar Lesson #1:

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"

    I think that's a fair concern and a fairly good comparison more-or-less "worst case." Foye still is a useful player though. He's just not someone you build your team around.

    See Aleksandar, that's a typo not a misuse of a word. "e" and "d" are adjacent on the keyboard(one above another) and since I don't look at the keyboard when I type, I may make mistakes every once in a while.

    Also, your grammar is pretty poor, but since it's your second language I am not correcting your every mistake. Misuse of common words on purpose is what annoys me, not a typo or a simple misspelling error - I have plenty of these also.
