    Nobody thinks Telfair can be a solid backup? From what I've seen, he plays with a chip on his shoulder, and can actually distribute the ball. Missed the game last night, but I saw that he had more assists than Lowry

    I think the issue is how much can you judge a guy you're barely seen play with a team in games that are pretty meaningless? No need to really invest in him. He can be an option for next year, but no one they need to go out of their way to make sure they lock down.

    This is what I was getting at. It seems most people here don't consider him as even an adequate backup, but considering the little amount of $ he'll be looking for, he might be a solid option this summer

    Definitely favour Telfair over Lucas as the backup. Telfair's shown the ability to run the offense smoothly, whereas Lucas just looks for his own shot IMO.

    The game versus Miami is a better indication of his abilities in my honest opinion.

    I would not want Telfair as a backup..... third string? OK. But not back up.

    Even Lowry laid an egg today. I'll wait till the end of the season to see where he's at

    Yeah, not a good game to put a mark on, especially against a team that's been playing magnificent: see 22-game streak, the reigning NBA champions, a great defensive team, etc.

    There were only 3 guys that played well for the Raptors, none of them were point guards. PG's tend to struggle against the Miami defense because of quick rotations.

    We can only hope that someone is willing to give up a 1st rounder for Bargnani's carcass....
