What do you think about:

- the drafted players?

- the re-signings?

- the players that left?


What I don't like:
- Posey's departure: his leadership, hustle,..., will be missed.
- Cassell re-signed: we now have a logjam at the PG. He'll cut Pruitt needed mins for his development.
- Scalabrine staying with the team: I know. His horrible contract (3M/season until 2010) makes him unmovable.

What I do like:
- Giddens and Walker: from what I've seen in pre-season, I like it. I know it's too early to tell, but hey! It's just how I feel right now, I like the picks.
- Tony Allen and House re-signings.
- O'Bryant signing for 0.8M/2 seasons.
- Miles: for 0.8M/1 season, non-guaranteed, imo it's good. Low Risk/??? Reward situation.

Overall, I liked the Celtics off-season. The things I like overcome the things I don't like.

What about you?

How do you evaluate your GM's decisions?

Speights is looking real good, and it's great that Iggy got locked up. That's not even counting the best part, Elton Brand.

We also signed Kareem Rush, Royal Ivey and another person who I forget who will be good specialists that we lacked last year.

A+ Sixers offseason

Jazz-meh did a good job, we have a strong team that will improve by being together, we have great team chemistry and they did a good job keeping everybody together. Trading Hart for Knight was a decent move getting us a decent vet on our team.

Now we have to wait until next offseason to see if we did a good job, as we have to re-sign Boozer, Korver and Memo...without going over the luxury tax that looks impossible.

as for the draft Kosta Koufos is a Sloan kinda guy, he works hard, very commited and I'm sure he will get some minutes like Paul Millsap did in his rookie season.

the other picks look like their worth a gamble for the future.

That's a good idea.

Celtics Off-Season: B+ imo.

Cavs offseason:
Traded Away: Damon jones :-(, Joe Smith
Traded in: Mo Williams :-)
Re-signed:Daniel Gibson :-), Delonte West.
Signed: Lorenzen Wright, Tarence Kinsey.

Cavs offseason deserves an A-. We got a second scorer that we need.

You forgot the Theo Ratliff (Who is going to be our backup C and should play a good role on our team) and Donyell Marshall who your probably talking about who will play little minutes but can hit the 3 ball

Nuggets B:

Got rid of: Camby, (wasn't as big of a loss as everyone thought it was) Najera (meh...), Draft Pick (might've been something great but the world may never know)

Picked Up: Smush, (:shrug:) Balkman, ( :clap: ) Birdman, (:D) Juwan Howard (:confused:)

From the preseason games I think we actually got better but we still haven't seen AI and Carmelo.

The Lakers lost their 1st round pick when they traded Kwame for Gasol. So, their 2nd round pick of Crawford was not real significant in terms of us getting a player to help us. I liked the signing of Josh Powell as a backup power forward. I was dissapointed that we kept Odom and did not trade him for Marion or Artest.

Overall, I would give us a grade of a "C" for our offseason. We did not have any significant trades or
pickups.

Re-Cap

Pros- Signing of J. Powell

Cons- We did not sign a veteran pf/C like Kurt Thomas to help off of the bench. I am not a fan of Odom, I thought he should have been traded this offseason.

SIXERS A+ Elton Brand has looked rediculous during preseason
