    I was a little concerned about this too (I really wanted Jon Diebler back in the Felton deal, BAD) but when you reassess things -- remember how, under D'Antoni, a lot of games we were just bombin' away from deep most nights and not shooting a great % at all most times doing so? Remember how many games under Mike we'd take over 30 3s in a game? Remember how when it didn't work we'd all be screaming about how it was such lazy, low % basketball? Well that's gonna change now. No need to take anywhere near that amount of 3s a night anymore.

    If we really do want that extra shooter -- not sure what these 2 are up to but two guys I'd look to sign cheap are Ryan Wittman or Adrian Thomas. Both 6'7", both can play 2 or 3 and both guys can really shoot the lights out from the perimeter (in particular Wittman -- that kid is a dynamite shooter). Why go out and commit big dollars to a Jason Kapono-type (we don't have the cap room for something like that anyway but just saying) when you can get what you need elsewhere cheaper? When you can shoot you can shoot -- don't know how much better off we'd be with a shooter with experience (with the much higher asking price that comes along with that) over a shooter that doesn't have the NBA experience yet. I personally think, for this type of player (a shooter), it doesn't matter much if at all. Guys like Wittman & Adrian Thomas know their roles & their craft -- they know how to get open. I personally don't see the advantage with a guy like Kapono, Korver etc. over these two. It's the same thing -- a specialist is a specialist. These are two good ones imo that I think we should consider with that last spot. Again, if we want an extra shooter -- I'd argue that a backup big man behind Amar'e that can score a little might be a little more vital.
