Very Happy

I think he's going to be a good one.
Me too. I know we need someone like Shabazz or maybe the SF from Georgetown, but I would be really excited if we got Oladipo. Mclemore would also be amazing (but us a pipe dream at this point).

Oladipo is role player at best. That would suck

Nothing like a good hearty meal!


That's what we're saying right?

I wouldn't re-sign Calderon unless it's a good deal for us and he would have to accept a back up role.

I've been looking at FA and one guy that I wouldn't mind is Tyreke Evans. Joe has said he wants 2 guards that can handle the ball. Evans can play both point and the 2 and so can Knight (although not at a very high level yet).

Give me Otto Porter in the Draft. A better Tay imo.

G: Tyreke Evans
G: Brandon Knight
F: Otto Porter
F: Greg Monroe
C: Andre Drummond

That's a solid young core right there. Oldest person in that group is Evans and he's only 23.

We already have 2 combo guards who aren't best suited to play a pure PG and you want to bring in a 3rd? We need a pure point, preferably one who can shoot from distance as well. If we dont keep Calderon, we better draft Burke or sign someone similar to Calderon.

Yeah, we need a guy who's gonna make everyone else better, and who can shoot the rock from outside since we've got some young inside guys.

But anyway Sacramento ain't letting Tyreke go, that's why I never considered him an option.

I like Burke. I really do. I just don't like his height and using Paul as a comparison isn't fair for him. Paul didn't have near the supporting staff Burke does and Paul shot nearly 50 percent from three both years.

Awesome announcement by the Sooners.

Oklahoma and Ohio State are playing a home and home in 2016 and 2017.

I love it when good programs play each other.

Slim, we will have to make plans when these games get closer.

How many "pure" point guards are there anyways?

I wouldn't mind Calderon if he wasn't such a terrible defender and one thing that bugs me about him is the amount of dribbling he does at the top of the key.

I think Evans would be a good guy to roll the dice on. Underrated defender, good at getting to the rack and has improved his range. (3 point % is up significantly.)

I think we would need a good veteran coach to get the best out of him. Sac has done him no favors.

If you don't want to try him at point, what about this:

PG: Chris Paul Wink
SG: Tyreke Evans
SF: Otto Porter
PF: Greg Monroe
C: Andre Drummond

You could bring Knight off the bench or explore trade options.

I'd buy season tickets if we sign Chris Paul. Won't happen though.

Andy Reid isn't rebuilding the Chiefs he is going to continue building on what they have. Now they can tag Branden Albert if they have to.

They've got good skill position players and trading for Alex Smith was a good move.

If they have a good draft they could do some damage next year.
