Exactly. I was just laughing when I saw the comments in this thread.
If and when Bargs is moved, a big rotation of Jonas, Ed and Amir is solid with lots of room for growth.
With Bargs seemingly on his way out, I would think most people have softened their stance on Amir's future with the team.
Amir Johnson is a keeper for the Raps. Out of all the players on roster I would vote him most likely to take a paycut in order to bolster the team.

Having said that, I like the kids game and he's improved that jump shot of his. He's also one of the guys on the team who hustles and get stuck in there so I think he's a good fit going forward.

Yes, but Amir, Davis and Jonas are making a combined $11.5 mil this season (Jonas is still under rookie scale for another 3 years, Davis has 1 left); while Bargs is earning $10 mil on just his OWN. That trio provides better value for dollar than any combination of Bargs + two of them.
keep him. I thought he'd be the odd man out because Barfs was our current PF and Ed would be the possible future PF, but with Barfs out, Davis and Amir are both playing well.
