I'm happy with the trade, adds some depth and acquired a veteran who knows his role now. Would have liked to acquire some depth up front but oh well
Most of you are overlooking the team chemistry part. Bassy works out with Rudy and Kyle during the offseason in Las Vegas.
i saw Telfair playing with double A battery during the lockout. The impact league i believe
he is a very willing passer tho. So thats good
Lucas > Telfair
I just don't see why everyone hates on Telfair, we basically got him for nothing and everyone is still complaining? We needed another fricken PG people. Telfair in my opinion is a decent back up point guard behind Lowry or if either Lowry or JLIII get's hurt we have a reliable insurance. Who else did you expect us to get? Westbrook? Rondo? Paul? Irving? Sounds like something "tenforthewin" would say.
Telfair is a really solid pick-up. Like NoProps said, a better point guard than Lucas, and a willing passer.
I unfortunately must say, whenever Telfair touches a team, they do not make the playoffs. The exception to the matter is Lebron's final year in Cleveland in 2009-2010 season.
Too bad Bargnani tanked his value because he is too lazy to pack his bags and move out of Toronto. If he plays better for these remaining games, we are still going to boo him because he will make himself look like he did tank his performance to stay in Toronto. If he still plays bad and potentially kills our playoff run, we are going to "Alex Rios" him in the off season and get nothing for him.
Telfair should have went to college, maybe if he would have honed his skills for 3-4 years in college he would be a good point guard today.
I think Telfair will be fine I mean theres only so many jobs in the NBA he will be a fine back up and his playstyle is aggressive but passes first will probably really benefit Ross where unless he plays with Lowry or Calderon he is essentially just there. Pretty sure Casey will be playing Telfair as point and Lucas off the ball as a scorer or if Lucas happens to be laying eggs just make Telfair take over in the long run Telfair will be the favorable though not long term back up PG.

I think it will help. Not a big deal, but Telfair will help.
