    I don't mind the Acy pick. He's a long shot to make it in the league. But, he seems like an excellent guy to have around. He was a leader at Baylor and doesn't seem like the type of guy to take it easy at practice. Probably a good type to have around considering the rather lackadaisical attitude of Bargs.

    Yeah I agree. Drafting him really isn't the problem. It's what to do with him now that he seems to have hit a low ceiling.

    I agree, but what I meant as in a Reggie Evans type of player is, the guy seems to have a knack of going for all the loose ball mentality. Of course his athleticism is far beyond that of Evans :P As you said, I'd love to see these second rounders given a chance to play.

    some of you guys are dumb. we're lucky to have one of the best GM's when it comes to drafting, and on top of that he is aggressive and has a plan. in Colangelo i trust.

    Things will always work out in the end, but if you want them to turn out a certain way... You need to make it happen.

    Your probably one of the only ones.

    I think he is actually a pretty good GM for drafts (not one of the best though). But he sucks at making trades and sign free agents. The move that I will never forget is trading Roy Hibbert to Pacers for an old, no knees O'neil! I'm not ready to forgive yet seeing as how the Fields signing is working out and that money could have got us something much better. He will be making a trade soon though because he is accelerating, and that will be the make or break. Until then...

    He has 1.5 good trades for every bad trade he makes.

    We wren't even going to draft Hibbert that draft. He drafted Hibbert for the Pacers. We were targeting someone else. So it's not like we lost out on Hibbert since we were never going to draft him at all.

    Fields is never going to live up to the contract. But who exactly were we going to get with that money?

    Why do you say he's going to make a trade soon?

    its a shame that the 1 bad trade before the 1.5 kills the team.

    Yes, but we could of had him is what I'm trying to say and trading for O'neil was bad from the start.

    We could of used the money in a trade for one thing or even next year F.A. Now we are pretty much maxed out, and once Jose's contract is done, if we sign Lowry, we will be back to capped.

    Because he will. He feels pressure to produce this year, and even more pressure that we don't have a draft pick next year if we suck. Also he even said he is tired of sitting on his hands and is ready to make big moves.

    I don't understand why other GMs can get an OJ Mayo, Nicolas Batum, Kirelenko and Jason Terry type players while this GM is an expert getting scrubs, one dimensional players, overpaying and giving lengthy contracts.

    Unless he makes a bold move before the trade deadline, I think ownership should recognize that his tenure is a big failure.

    Tell me where he made the mistake.

    He didn't pick Aldridge because he's redundant to Bosh. He didn't pick Morrison because BC wasn't sold on him.


    Without hindsight, it was a good pick.
    I remember at that time, people here wanted Gay as well. But I believe Gay was slated as a ‘potential/high ceiling’ risky pick. So it was between Aldridge and Bargs.

    At the time nobody knew exactly where Bargs fit in. We thought he could be a 3 or a 5. But he obviously ended up being a 4.

    The fact that he has yet to get contract extension suggest to me they are thinking about letting him go, but to do so, they need to have someone to replace him. Perhaps Stepanski?
