    Actually cut Allen

    Useful in the playoffs maybe but not now

    Yeah I like grits but even last night he made some real bad plays. I mean he has to realize right now we need him to be more of a pg then a sg and yet he continues to take bad shots or not even pass the ball.

    I would cut Allen before Crawford. At this point Allen really doesn't bring much to our team and is not the same player he once was. If he had an average 3pt shot then maybe but he offers nothing but solid defense. Crawford bring a lot more to this team. Adding Nelson would make much more sense at the moment then Allen as well.

    Never been so excited about a deep bench guy. Really important pickup.

    we actually have a legit back-up PG

    I think Jrue continues to start at PG until Rondo gets healthy... then Jrue will switch to SG when Rondo returns

    but finally... no more Crawford running the point with the 2nd unit

    Jameer Nelson becomes the starting PG immediately. Puts Jrue & moves Moore where he belongs (off the bench) . Now we have our 2 PG's when Rondo healthy & Moore & Clark off the bench. Absolutely elated !!!!

    This is a great signing. He isn't deep bench, he is heavy rotation.

    If this team could just find a legit SF we would be set. I would put us up against anybody if we could land a Barnes, Hood, Middleton, or Fournier caliber wing to plug into the starting rotation. No way should Dante be our starting SF when he should be nothing more then a backup stretch 4 that can play the 3 getting spot minutes each game. We have the assets to bring in a stud on the wing and we need to get a deal done soon. Nelson is a great pickup and perfect backup PG for this team. If Nelson had been here against the Warriors we win that game imo. We were in desperate need for a PG when Holiday was out.

    Not sure why Allen was not used last night. If ever there was a team that he could be useful against, it would be the Warriors. Moore was an absolute embarrassment.

    Blahhhh Crawford can do too much sometimes but man, losing him is gonna hurt. He was really our only legit scorer off the bench. Hope it doesn't bite us in the end.

    Yeah, team desperately in need of perimeter shooting cuts one of their better perimeter shooters. I wonder if they were too close to tax to keep Crawford and use exemption for Nelson.
