Jajuan Johnson (NBDL)Why do you assume that players that are under contract overseas will just drop everything at the opportunity to warm our bench?
Sean Williams (NBDL)
Luke Harangody (NBDL)
Carlos Arroyo (Overseas)
Semih Erden (Overseas)
Von Wafer (Overseas)
Nenad Krstic (Overseas)
Delonte West (Free Agent)
I would pass on West even though he is the most talented of the bunch. What about Arroyo, Krstic and Erden? I think these guys could help. Is it too difficult to get them out of their current deals? I'm not sure if it is possible. Let's say we had to stick with NBDL guys, I think bringing back Jajuan and Sean Williams would make sense.
It's no longer 1989.
Man, you come into every thread with your dukes up huh?
Ya I've noticed that too
I have no idea what "dukes" are or why they should be "up". But it's been a fact for years now that a lot of Europeans that project as mid- to low-level rotation guys stay in Europe, mostly because:
(1) the salary is comparable, if not better;
(2) the level of stress is nowhere near this of an NBA schedule (most notably, less games and less travel);
(3) they're closer to home.
So while I understand the "inertia" of thinking the NBA is the greatest thing since sliced bread and everyone dreams of the rigors of NBA season and nothing else, I'd like to assure you that players like Erden, Krstic and even Carlos Arroyo will most likely not be willing to come back to the NBA at this point.
