  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.
to be a point guard, or someone who's main position is a point.

I do not trust Avery Bradley to be healthy for the rest of the season. He plays recklessly, and while it fuels the defense, there is room for concern; a car going faster than the others is more prone to a crash.

Terry is literally our only true back up point guard. And he's our only true back up shooting guard as well. Pierce/Green can slide to the 2/3, something I hope will happen for the rest of the season now.


So Danny, please. No 6'2-6'5 shooting guards, unless they are average to decent point guards as well. I'd like a decent PG athletically capable of playing 10-20 minutes a game.
I like Marcus Smart

I think Bradley, Terry and Lee are all versatile enough to switch between the 1 and the 2.

So I am happy to bring either a point guard or a two guard on board.

No PGs, unless they are scoring PGs. We need to replace Barbosa, not Rondo.

Size in the guard rotation is still a problem, so whomever we bring should have some size, else we'll be having some problems pairing him with Terry.

may as well take a look at Sundiata Gaines.  He has some experience.

Yeah this is a good point. Lee Bradley and Terry have all shown they can bring the ball up without major problems. I'd like to see some length on the wing at the 2 guard spot... Or Dooooling!

They need someone who is NBA level, not take up a seat on the bench level.

Barbosa didn't have size and we were making due.

Any sort of guard can work, just needs to be talented enough to play.

Yeah we need someone who can give us meaningful minutes (10 - 15 a game) and would be able to fit right into the rotation.

Yeah, that's a good idea. Gaines has shown some talent in the past.

Although, I think he is playing in Europe (edit: It's China). So he may not be available.

I kinda think we under rate Terry's ability to handle the ball....

my personal opinion...but yes...i'd like more of a pure point
