Time to get Delonte West
« on: February 11, 2013, 09:08:32 PM »
it's pretty clear to me Barbosa is gone for the year. Delonte makes the most sense. He knows the system and can play both guard spots ....

Delonte is the best available guard out there...guy would be a starter on most teams if not for his off the court behavior

Looks like he has an ACL. Should be done as well.

I think Delonte is probably the best out there but I would give AI a tryout.

As long as he promises to keep his guitar case AND trike in Maryland.

give these guys 10 day contracts and if it works out, give them a contract for the season.

Doc says Barbosa's knee injury "doesn't look good." MRI tomorrow.

Yeah, Delonte is my favourite option too.

Derek Fisher is probably the next best available option. I would be worried about Doc overplaying Fisher though. Maybe Anthony Carter as third choice. Gosh, Jonny Flynn might be the next best option. Ugly.

(1) Delonte
(2) Fisher
(3) A.Carter
(4) J.Flynn

I'm going to hold out hope it's nothing ore than a sprain until something official is announed.

However, Delonte might be the best option out there if the worst is confirmed.  Not sure if Doc or KG/Piece would want him though.

I liked Terrel Harris in the few minutes I saw of him in Miami. Nice athletic active 6-5 two guard. He wouldn't be a PG option but Doc could leave that to Bradley, Terry and Lee if need be. Go with a true two guard instead if Doc wanted to.

Chris Douglas Roberts could be another interesting option. Solid scorer. Passable defender.

I really like Rodney Carney. Very good defensive player with elite defensive potential. Not the smartest player though. Might be difficult to get him up to speed in such a short period of time. Already short-handed. No alternatives if he struggles. Yeah, probably not Carney, pity.
