If they could get a big, that would be better, but I think TA would be great this season for the vet.

Love that guy, hard nose, can hit the outside shot better now than he did, would be great to mentor Smart.

Yeah I think it would be fun to have him back in green!

I'd cut Larkin and sign Allen and Bogut.

I like Tony, and having another gritty guy on the roster would be a good thing.

But, the team may prefer more shooting, with Smart and Rozier being spotty from outside.

I reached the same opinion as your but with different reasoning.

Frankly thought  Gerald Green would make more sense for us.

Wanna hear something weird? (if not, then look away) Last night I had a dream in which Al Horford suffered a severe shoulder injury and was lost for the season. Why did I dream that? No idea.

It would be fun to have Tony back in a Cs uniform, but I would prefer 'teammate of the year' Gerald Green and also agree that we could use another big body.

If we bring back Green and...gulp...Zeller, then people can stop bringing up the fact that we are only bringing back four guys from last year's roster. The inclusion of those two would raise that percentage by 50%! Nader and Yabusele should kind-of be included since they have been with the organization since last season.

Love to see TA back and love to see Bogut as well.

That is a nightmare, we are super screwed if that happens. I do expect Horford to miss some time this year, but hopefully it's only like 10 games. If/When Horford get hurt one of Yabu/Theiss/Semi better be ready.

You forgot we got Hayward now and Tatum. Together with Kyrie I don't see lack of shooting.

Kyrie and Hayward are great shooters. Who else on the roster is?  Horford and Morris are adequate for big men. Time will tell if Tatum is a good shooter; he shot 34.2% in college, against weaker defenses and a shorter line. It may take him awhile to become reliable.

Role players who only do one or two things well are quickly becoming a thing of the past.  EVERYBODY on the floor has to be able to hit a shot, and play defense.  It's the GSW model.

Loved Tony when he was here for all the reasons mentioned, but no thanks.
