    Our pick this year is already going to OKC via the Kyle Lowry trade -- we traded the pick to Houston and Houston traded it to OKC.

    I moved to Minneapolis last year, and got to see Wolves-Mavs before Rubio's injury. He was pretty crazy to watch. Of course, so was Dirk.

    I said "keep Calderon" back in January, and I still think we should keep him. I will say that if we have a serious shot at Deron Williams in the summer, I'd consider that in order to get younger. If...

    Actually, they do, and what they show is pretty good for a guy we're paying $5M this year.

    Paired with Bargs, it doesn't really matter if you consider him a 4 or a 5. He'll be the one in the paint while Bargs is a little bit further from the basket, angling for a drive or a jumper. Is...

    The stats I linked to are actually on the season, so they include his shooting/distributing slump at the start of the season. If his 2010-2011 season averages are this good, he doesn't even need to...

    Keep Calderon!

    I've always liked Jose, even through the tough times in 2009, but I think now that he's the clear starting PG the last thing we should do is trade him. There are two reasons for this:

    1) He's...

    I think Triano probably does want to rest Jose a bit more, which will make him less likely to sustain another injury -- he's just waiting for Bayless to recover fully. Since Jose's okay on the court,...

    Agreed.

    Derrick Rose is another example of a scoring PG. If Bayless ends up being even 2/3 the player that Rose is we'll be in pretty good shape with him, DeRozan, and Bargnani.
