Broken record fellas--I know, I know, but like I've been saying for months, there's A TON of solid domestic talent currently playing overseas right now that I think we should be giving SERIOUS consideration to. There's all different types positional talent available but for now, let's just look at PGs and swingmen:
Adding a couple of these guys could go a LONG WAY in shoring up our bench which looks razor thin all of a sudden. Honestly, I like these guys a lot better than any of the guys they're talking about in the papers, now that we lost out on Jamal Crawford, Reggie Williams and Shawne Williams. Very leary of Michael Redd at this point (good if healthy but he never is -- How's the knee? Has he lost a step? Feels like Crawford all over again--doesn't Indy have the cap room to outbid us? They're said to be the frontrunners for his services at the moment) and Mo Evans...And I don't love Bibby at this stage of his career at backup point...We can do better. I know it'll be a little bit of a pain in the ass to target & secure some of these guys currently playing in Europe (reaching out and making contact with the agents, buy-outs may need to be orchestrated, new NBA contracts would then have to be drafted up and signed, the players might have to re-establish work visas, etc..) but I see no reason why they couldn't do it. They just went through it with Jerome Jordan so they're familiar with the process. These guys are so far off everyone's radar there shouldn't be any competition for their services (I don't wanna keep running into the same problem of getting outbid like we just did with Craw and S. Williams)... And I think they're better than anything that's currently available off the scrap heap anyway...Pick any 3 of these guys ---> mine would be Hansbrough, Horne (or Wittman) and Sims. Tell me we wouldn't instantly have a vastly improved bench with those 3..Honestly, I'd take any combination of these guys. Remember, all we're talking about is enhancing the great foundation that's already here...Shoring up holes and weaknesses: reliable 3-pt shooting, SG/SF depth, PG depth...These types of guys are our best option right now in my opinion.
