At this point we only have LIN for this year...........is there anyway to lock him in ?
would he lock in ?????
Hard to believe we may have our PG of the future,,,,,,
WHAT A TURN OF EVENTS
Once again, his contract becomes guaranteed automatically, which means it will be included in our payroll for the remainder of the season. But, before it happens we can do two things. We can cut him or offer him an extension, for example for the rest of this and the next season.
But, although I'm not gung ho about any trade involving Stat, I don't understand why you laugh at Martin and Scola. Scola's under-the-rim prowess would fit in nicely between Chandler and Melo as he can rebound and score quite nicely as a third option. And Martin is definitely one of the top shooting guards in this league and would thrive in this offense.
Anyways, I'm pretty sure Flynn will be on the move by the end of the month and would welcome getting rid of TD to get him.
This team is a good balanced team, with a bad coach, but good balance of scoring defense and rebounding. Hopefully Lin wil mesh well with Amare and Melo and make them better off the ball.
Martin and Scola are great, dont get me wrong. Your just asking me to accept two huge contracts. Martin is injury prone, doesnt play defense, and has a contract at 11.5 mil. We can pay J.R SMith the mini mid level to get the same game. Of course Smith isn't the same shooter but he is more atheltic, can drive better and still hit the 3 for MUCH cheaper.
Scola i great since he is so crafty and plays old school. But he doesn't play defense and has a big contract as well.
I jsut think if your gonna trade Amare you would want to get a better deal.
