I'm sure there will be posts asking why I made this thread and closed shortly after, but after basically having an almost complete roster there are still what 2 open slots.
I for one am not comfortable with the starting SF options we have and am hopeful there is other cheap options available.
Since we don't have much money I'm unsure if we can land one of those players.
Anyone with some realistic options available?
SG Kobe/Xavier henry
SF: Johnson/swaggy p
C: J.Hill/Ed davis/Sacre
I like our 2nd unit as has a lot of youth, athletic ability, energy.
I don't know about yall but I did not like wesly Johnson or whatever his name was last year. I do not feel well having him as our starting SF.
Now that aminu has signed with mavs for 2 years 2.1 mil why the hell couldn't we have made him an offer like that? We paid Kelly more than that lol.
Garcia is rumored to be going to Houston.
Marion as we all know is probally going to bulls probally not mavs now that they have aminu. Although at least with us would have a starting job. But he's after more money than we can offer. And if he isn't after money he's after a ring which we sure don't have this year.
Here is an updated list.
What about CDR? Chris Douglas-Roberts? Kobe loves him he can play SG or SF has some nba experience plays hard can defend and score. Would be a solid rotation player. Maybe even kobe's backup and have Xavier henry start?
I was hoping for aminu but that ship has sailed.
I do miss that bazemore left as he could of been a good kobe backup.
What about Shannon brown? Could he backup kobe or even start at SF? An athletic player that can defend.
I'm kinda at a lost not sure what we do I just know we have a hole there at the wing position.
Kobe played 6 games last year he needs to have games off and when that happens we have 3 players to play 2 positions.
Clarkson is a PG and is better than nash at this point in time so I expect him to get backup PG minutes.
I'm not sure what the answer is. Maybe have to wait after 20 games and see if something better becomes available via trade but at that point might even be too late to even make the playoffs.
Wesly Johnson isn't the answer at starting SF.
And swaggy p and kobe can't both start swaggy can play maybe some at end of games in certain situations but he is better off coming off the bench.
We could get MWP but he is more a PF now and we have what 6 of those already.
marion, Beasley, Garcia, cdr, Cunningham...
I know some of yall have said Cunningham before, I don't know much about the kid but he has to be better than wes Johnson.
maybe we take la Quinton ross SF from summer league or another summer league guy or maybe him and Deandre kane and move Clarkson to play some SG minutes as well.
Not sure what the plan is. But I would feel a lot better about this team if we knew who our starting SF was going to be.
In before close
Assuming Byron scott is our coach.
