We all know what Hedo is capable of doing if in the right situation (Orlando Magic finals run) and we have seen what he does when he is not in the right situation (Toronto Raptors).

With that being said which team or teams out there could really use Hedo to maybe take them to the next level?

If they hadn't given him up he would have been great there.
Had he went to Portland he would have done just as poorly as he did in Toronto IMO.

So where could he actually go?

Phoenix, steve nash + kickouts to hedo and his passing :speechless:

Otherwise, generally he would excel in run and gun teams.

It would have to be a team that needs someone to make plays and create on the offensive end. Orlando is one of those teams, but I can see teams like San Antonio or maybe even the Hawks/Blazers.

Would he want to go back to Orlando?
I do not think he would work well with Brandon Roy because Roy excels with the ball as does Hedo.
Hawks would be a good team as they will not keep JJ.

That was not a jab at the Hawk AT ALL. Stating what I thought was common knowledge. People speak like there is a tiny TINY chance Bosh will stay (I do not think he will) but I have not hear anyone say JJ is staying.
I should have said IF JJ leaves Hedo would be a good fit in ATL.

Well since no one cares about the Hawks on ESPN, and all the way down to the forums where Lakers, Bulls, Knicks, and Lebron fans are the masses, there really isn't any news that is talked about on the Hawks point of view. They just think since JJ is a free agent he wouldn't come back. Well I don't care if he comes back or not, but he can get max here. We won 50+ games. 3rd seed in the East. It was mainly the star's fault we lost in the playoffs, and last I check he is wanting to be treated like one. Plus JJ WANTED to come to ATL back when we signed and traded for him.

I think since him and Lebron are buddies he should spend more time talking him into coming to the ATL in a sign and trade and get the MAX, since we have better trade pieces than anyone else can offer them in a sign and trade without giving up our team core(we can trade Josh Smith/Al Horford/Marvin Williams/Crawford/Picks).

We would still have:

Bibby
Joe Johnson
Lebron James
Al Horford or Josh Smith
Zaza

That looks damn good, but the only problem some may think this is crazy is because ESPN doesn't have a pitch for ATL. Just Knicks, Bulls, and Heat. The media seems to be forcing Lebron somewhere, and are killing the Cavs in the process.

back to turkey or raptors will just waste money! nobody wants that contract only way he GO's is if he gets released

Had he went to Portland he would have done just as poorly as he did in Toronto IMO.

Doubt it are fans dont boo are players thats why he said he was out of it..and you wouldnt know what he would have done you cant predict anything.... im just glad his wife chose toronto so we didnt waste that money

Raptors will be rebuilding and the nets team looks way better at this point the team is bosh-less and bosh will most likely be in MIA or in NYC

Definitely a contender... I like the San Antonio pick. Also, Dallas seems like a good fit. Phoenix. Maybe even Miami or the Knicks depending on who else they sign.

The bigger question is which contender isn't he a good fit for? On the lakers he'd provide the 3 pt shooting that wins championships.

He needs the ball though.
He got the ball a bunch in Orlando through kick outs from Dwight, also got open from Dwights picks.
He got to control the ball a lot which he would not be able to do in some teams and he was not able to do in Toronto which is why he was not as effective.

As far as us booing him, anyone would have booed someone making 10 Million per and playing like he did. Just like any other sports city we expect results.
Even the Hawks booed their players in the playoffs. We just expect results if we pay for a product!

Otherwise, generally he would excel in run and gun teams.

Nash would make anyone better...true, but Turk would complain he doesn't have the ball in his hands enough. He needs to be on a team with a point guard that does not run the offense or need the ball. Turk was at his absolute best when Jameer was injured. He is a point forward along the lines of Roy, Wade, Kobe, LeBron... only no where near as good (he thinks he is though). I'm not sure he fits anywhere well without adjusting his role. If he has the ball as much as wants it...the team will not be that good. If he is required to play off the ball more, the team will be better but he'll suck out, whine and become a cancer. I'm not sure there's and GM that makes a move for him.

Maybe the Knicks if they only land a power forward in FA. They'll need someone to facilitate the offence.

I'd like to see him go to Utah or San Antonio and get benched by Sloan or Pop...oh wait, that already happened in San Antonio. That sould have been a red flag for Colangelo. If Pop ships you out, there must be a reason.

If being the 59th best 3pt shooter (where he was last year) wins championships... why not get one of the 58 better shooters.

Well, last year was a down year...let's look at the season before...What? He was actually worse. He was the 95th best 3pt shooter in the league.

I believe the big myth is that Hedo had a down year last year...not really. He was right around his career numbers. They just aren't that good. He's basically a 41% fg, 38% ft, 14pt, 3ast, 4 reb guy. That's about what did last year and about what he'll do in the future. Problem is, he thinks he's a star. Everyone remembers last years playoffs, that was the anomally.

06-04-2010, 08:58 PM
hedo was an inconsistent pos. Yeah he hit some game winners, but orl wouldnt have even be in that position so much if he wasn't so damn lazy and sloppy all the time. He shows up for one above average series, and all a sudden he's magic johnson, lol. Hedo is the definition of overrated. Never mind that all of this is irrelevent tho, becuz the team is clearly much better right now. Much more consistent with jameer & vc as opposed to skip & hedo(which was/is obvious to any competent nba fan).


hedo was a better fit but i like yall to win it because your bench is deeper/better than la and last year you guys just missed easy shots

haha

It would not have been a good fit either. Roy is their ball-handler when he is healthy. Andre Miller had a great year, but the last thing they need is someone to take the ball away from Roy. Blazers need dependable bigs.

Now are you basing the ranking on 3 pt shooting %? If so, I would still say that begin the 59th best % wise isn't bad. Consider, some of those above him shoot much fewer times than he does. Also, he is a more complete offensive player, with his ability to drive and pass.

Now his numbers are down a little from when he played on my kings, and I haven't paid that much attention to his stats. But still at 59th best shooting % he is basically the 2nd best 3pt shooter on average on a team. Not bad. Which is why many teams could use him.

Would he be a major contributor to a contender. Probably not. But most could still use him.

The problem being that Turk demands the ball and wants to run the offence and if he doesn't get it he'll sulk and complain. He would make a rock solid roll player on a contender but he has shown he's not willing to take on that type of roll. No contender is going to hand this 41% shooting, slow footed (couldn't get to the rim last year) guy the keys to their offense.

Agreed, which is why I think he could fit well in San Antonio. Parker and Hill are more scoring guards which could leave the play-making to Hedo. Not sure if the Spurs would be interested or if they have anything of interest to the Raptors though.

No contender is going to hand this 41% shooting, slow footed (couldn't get to the rim last year) guy the keys to their offense.

You may be right there... to be honest, I haven't watched him play much since he left sacramento (my team). At that time, he didn't act that way, though.

I will say that you keep in mind that the 41% fg shooting is weighted with the fact that he shoots so many 3pt shots. His true fg% would probably be closer to 45% with the numbers adjusted.

Anyway, he obviously isn't the most athletic player out there. But I still say that he could be useful as that role player on a team. Wether or not he would be willing to take on that role, we don't know, as he hasn't been given that opportunity yet.

I think the teams he has been on have needed/expected him to provide an offensive punch on the team. So perhaps his ball hog traits that you mention are a result of pressure on him to perform offensively.

He obviously didn't ball hog here in sacramento...
