Iggy 6'6" 207 13ppg---34 mpg $14,000,000....... Dorell Wright 6'9" 206 11ppg---22.3 mpg $4,100,000 ! Very long and athletic !
    Dorell Wright is only averging 9 PPG but averaged 16 2 seasons ago.

    I have never seen him as a #5, but I have been told by the GURUS on this board that he will be ! So, I guess I am wrong !
    Becareful who you consider a guru on this board. A lot of people spewing random thoughts as they pop in their heads.

    my bad>> 11 was a 10 game split ! He is worth a look . I am not an Iggy fan per say & a 14 mil POP even makes me less of an Iggy fan ! Unless via trade or RFA in 2013, the #3 position is GOd awful in the UFA area .

    really>> PIPE DREAM would be Josh Smith . He is even cheaper than Iggy ! 6'9" 225 . But, is he a Monty type of player ? atlanta has been a One-on-One type of team under Drew & co. for several years now . wonder if Smith would fit in Montys concept ? Smith is a UFA !

    I think Smith will get near max money; either in Atlanta or elsewhere.

    How would we fit IGGY, then ? He is MAX money . I see Iggy all over this board . Iggy here, Iggy there, Iggy everywhere ! We cant afford to pay him (at least not long term) . If we keep EGO past 4 (well 3 now) & plan to, MAX AD in 3, Iggy is not here, not there, he is nowhere .
