    Default Hey why not go after AK47

    Yes he has a fellow Russian and former teamate in Deron Willams lobbying for him to go to NJ....but hey maybe we can sell him winning this year

    I mean why not, we got passed on by Grant Hill,Shawne Williams,JJ Barea and Jamal Crawford so far why not actual try to fill a need and get a no!

    and yes I realize all these players signed elsewhere for more money!

    I do think if we some how did get him then we fill 2 needs in 1 player, he would be a backup for Amare and Melo

    will block shots and rebound for us and can run the floor well, not a great shooter, but better than Jefferies!!!!

    If we only had Mozgov to speak to him in Russian!

    not likely to happen but the hypothetical lineup

    Douglas/Bibby
    Feilds/Shump (for now)
    Melo/AK47/Feilds
    Stat/AK47/Jefferies
    Chandler/Jefferies/Jordan/Jorts

    Looks pretty good!!!


    I mean while we are chasing All Stars from the turn of the century why not thrown his name into the mix!

    by the way word has it we are calling Michael Redd's camp

    If the price is right, he could be a good role player...

    But he aint far from being status

    He'd be a top of the line rotation player for us, IMO.

    Can easily play the 3 and 4; has some range, plays some D, can *pass*, too.

    I'm surprised White Russian hasn't been inked by someone already.....

    He doesn't have Marion's athleticism (and he's a much better passer) but if healthy and rejuvinated I could see him having a Marion-like impact with his versatility for us, as his ceiling.

    Bibby-Douglas
    Fields-Shumpert
    Melo-Kirilenko
    Amare-Jeffries
    Chandler-Jordan

    One MLE type PG away from being a juggernaut, IMHO. (or a big jump from Douglas/Fields/Shumpert)
