    Very good addition. I hope there's enough money for Avery Bradley still though!

    Edit- He's a career 42% shooter, but hasn't shown an ability to do much else. He's listed at 6'2", but that's probably generous. I don't think I'd want him to be our starting guard, but he's an excellent bench piece for a really solid price.

    Yes. Morris please, and we are done.

    Beg Iggy later (if he goes to the Clips I will fume). Add Perkins from the summer squad. Telling ya, he is Randle with better passing skills. Maybe Melo if he works hard before camp.

    Ok.

    Yeah. I still want Bradley but I like this on a couple of levels. Experienced guy who is a good shooter.

    We got a lot more to do than Morris and Perkins. :D

    Even if we start Quinn (which as I'm looking at it more wouldn't be the end of the world, just not ideal), we still need more depth at SF and a lot more depth at guard, we could use another veteran big even after Morris. I know everyone here hates Rondo, but he's a really good bench guard and we should bring him back if we can.

    Cook/____/ (Caruso?)
    Green/Caldwell-Pope/Daniels
    LeBron/_____/Horton-Tucker
    Davis/Kuzma/Dudley
    McGee/Morris/_____

    edit- I've been told three times I forgot Dudley and Daniels. I'm sorry! Still a lot to do.

    FWIW, I think we're doing a better job of filling out our roster with guys that "fit" than last year...

    Oh good Lord yes we are. :D

    No more "dogs" and "creators" we're going after three point shooters and defenders. I love it. We're going to shock some people at how hot this team will get from outside.

    I’ll take him. Still need a backup wing (preferably someone athletic) and a big bodied backup center.

    Looking a bit deeper, Quinn's numbers are driven down by poor/inconsistent minutes and usage. Now, admittedly a lot of that is going to be due to him just not being consistently good, but there's some signs that Quinn could be a solid spot starter or at the very least could be a rock solid bench player if given consistent opportunities.

    In 28 games as a starter Quinn is averaging 13.6 points, 4 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 0.6 steals, 0.1 blocks, with 1.5 turnovers in 31.3 minutes per game. In those games he shoots 46% from the field, 44% from deep, and 86% from the free throw line.

    All that said, he's just not a good defender at his size and with his limited athleticism. Starting him long-term would be rough. Still a great add at this cost though.

    Good stuff - "spot starter" is the perfect phrase - and if he's a valuable bench contributor, can eat up some minutes playing the 1 while spacing the floor, that's all I want...

    Bradley or Rondo.

    You forgot Daniels and Dudley. SMH

    Perkins will be the third backup big.

    Space for Iggy or maybe Parker if he wants to gamble on him self.
