Open roster spots: sign KMart?
« on: February 01, 2013, 04:27:36 PM »
Kenyon Martin makes the most sense now, unless Danny trade PP and KG.

is Kristic still under contract in Russia?

We have 2 roster spots, not sure of the rules to get additional roster spots for injured players.

It's pretty rare that the league gives another roster spot.  You need at least four guys out with long term injuries, I believe.

I can say with certainty that it would be stupid not to sign Kmart if we can. We lacked big men before and now losing a PF we could use anyone really and Kmart was a decent pick up even before this injury

Minnesota got a temporary 16th roster spot because they had four guys out for at least two weeks.  A big is likely to become available because of that because the T-Wolves used their exemption to sign ex-Celtic Chris Johnson to two ten-day contracts.  They seem to like him so they might trade Lou Amundson to make space for him.  If not, CJ becomes available.  I would take either guy, as I suggested in a thread in the trades forum.

Is Leon Powe healthy these days? Ha Get Krstic or Darko back from oversees.  I'm afraid KG will burn out if we don't get able bodies soon.

K-Mart would make our defense that much nastier, but I'm not sure I'm looking forward to adding another 35+ year old guy to the rotation with our contention hopes shot.

A little too reminiscent of adding Bimbo Coles and Grant Long to that 03 Celtic team.

I would rather sign a young player. Haddadi works for me.

I'm thinking someone like Danny Fortson right now.

Naw . .. I'm sure Danny & co have a short list of guys they're ready to call in.

I know what you mean, but one injury to one of Miami's ''big three'' and depending on how Rose comes back and I'll take my chances with anyone in the east in the playoffs. K-Mart gives us a more legitimate shot than any d-league player or any other free agent big man available. A rebounder and defender is exactly what we need in a backup PF and that's exactly what K-Mart brings.

I sign him to the vet min no questions asked.

I bet KG wants no part of K Mart doesn't seem like the type of guy that would jive with KG

Lets get Kmart, AI, T-Mac and hell why were at it lets try to talk Yao out of retirement.

Teams done, better off trading pierce and KG to a team where they can compete for a title together.

do we get an injured player exception or anything for losing Rondo for the next couple years?
