I think another 2nd 10 day signing is required to fully assess his abilities. But after finally getting to watch last nights game, call me pessimistic he will stick.

What got him out of the nba is still there. Jump shot is not consistent and is turnover prone. He looks lost in knowing when to score vs pass. I mean he knows how to pass , but doesn't know at times to drive in or shoot instead. Also finishing around the rim was considered one of his issues. Saw it him miss the net twice on semi difficult layups.

Again i'm being a little bit hard on him but i'm not all that impressed so far

Surprising players happen all the time -- that's why they're called surprises.

If he'd agree to a one-year deal, with a second year non-guaranteed team option, then I think we need to go that route.  If nothing else, it gives us a trade asset for the early part of next summer.

We foolishly did not do that for Stiemsma.

It is possible that Stiemsma refused to sign that sort of contract.

Yeah, since Danny isn't a complete issue, I'm sure the idea of giving a non-guaranteed second year didn't just slip his mind.  Rather, I'm sure Stiemer's agent objected to it.

def a 2nd 10 day

then sign him to 2-3 years i'd say
would probably be fair trade bait

The March 1 deadline is for being waived by a team so that you can be eligible for another team's playoff roster.  You aren't stuck with the guys who have on the roster on March.

The reason you would keep T-Will on a second ten-day contract is so that you aren't committed to him if someone you like better is waived by the March 1 deadline.

Or you could take both?

Two years is okay by me, for maybe 4 million?

So because he hadn't played for a bit. Made some crazy travel arrangements to catch up with the team, no practices with the team, played one and a half games, but still looked solid, your not impressed?

I mean I get not jumping up and down thinking we got a new go to guy, but for what he's gone threw to get to this point in a matter of days, and also trying not to mess up so he can finish the season with a NBA team, and not just a scrub NBA team, he's playing in front of PP and KG and the Jet, how well would your first couple games go?

I think he's shown at least enough to get the second 10 contract, and if he plays even this well over the next few games a spot on the bench. If he gets floor time who knows, but there are worse guards out there.

If we sign him to a one-year contract does that influence our ability to sign a big man?

If not, I say sign him to a one-year.

You can only sign a player to two ten-day contracts.  Then you have to sign him for the rest of the season.

He is an underrated player, very talented, Celtics should sign for the rest of the season.

Love Terrence.

We should keep him for the remainder of the season.
