    Because next year's PG class is extremely weak.

    The class as a whole is pretty top-heavy anyways, but its much more stacked at the C position.

    "I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."

    It's also about salary. If we wanted to get a guy like Jennings, it's going to cost $10 mil/year. I'd pay that, but there are a lot of uncertainties of us getting him. Bledsoe would be a much cheaper option. The PG group this year isn't good at all, but the center crop at the top of the draft this year is great.

    Also big pluses.

    And, I would rather have a 20 year old as a role player (4th big) than rely on him to be my starting guard when I am trying to make the playoffs

    You just said trade Lopez for and draft his replacement. I'm saying you the current draft pick we have on the best player available. We don't need to trade the center we have already when he fits into the system (And he's not doing bad at all). Also, we should use our salary cap on getting better in the backcourt/wing. We don't need to reinvent the wheel here. I'm not saying that what your saying. I'm just piggy backing off your post.

    I said trade Lopez while his value is high. It isn't a knock on him. It's to replace him with a starting PG, and draft his replacement to be our 4th big man. That is the whole point. It is a reallocation of resources from a strength to a weakness.

    Yeah but me personally I would rather keep Lopez as the starter, sign a starting PG like Bledsoe (since the draft class is so weak), and use our more than likely lottery pick on a wing player that can score.

    You can't sign Bledsoe. You have to trade for him. All of the other good PGs signed extensions this off season (Curry, Lawson, and I think I'm forgetting someone). That is the dilemma. I'm cool with Jennings, who is about the only guy worth signing this off season, but a lot of teams want him, so it's a bit of a crap shoot.

    I know a lot of people have their hearts set on Brandon Jennings, and I understand why. But won't he be a restricted free agent? What makes people think the Bucks won't match?

    We'll see what the GM of the Bucks has to say if we drive by his house and...spit on his lawn. It'll smell really weird and spit will be everywhere! He'll be too grossed out to match the offer in 48 hours leaving Jennings one with the Krewe!

    I can get on board with that. I call shotgun. Maybe you can rub a tonsil stone on his mailbox or something.

    Jrue Holiday signed a 4 year contract extension.... I honestly think that out of all the point guards that we have listed, Jeff Teague, Brandon Jennings, and Kyle Lowry would be the best fit and most probable fit. (CP3, I love him, but hes not coming back). I would just keep Vazquez as a backup point guard, thats his fit in the league.

    Sadly, I know he's not.

    I don't know why OP thinks Lowry is a FA next year. He isn't.
