    Default Weems Coming back next year

    http://www.nbadraft.net/forum/realgm...algiris-kaunas

    that's what his plan is anyway. We've covered the topic before and how there's a log jam yadda yadda, but this came from his own mouth

    Hmmm, Weems better have improved on defense and taking care of the ball or he might be coming back to North America and going straight to Cleveland.

    From what I've read he has gotten better. He's always has the physical tools, maybe now he's putting it all together.

    He needs to keep that 2001 Kobe mini afro when he returns, iuno mini afros and SGs they work, just ask Tony Allen.

    I have seen Weems playing in Zalgiris, i can see he is a very good bench player for any championship team, but not starter really.

    except i'm yet not sure position he should play.
    He is playing SF in Europe and doing well there. But.. his height, let us think, he should better move to SG... So i suppose, him playing SG in NBA, would work better

    He could backup DeMar again. Barbosa most likely won't be around to steal minutes from Weems.

    Weems needs to gain 10-15 pounds of muscles and be the third string SF next season. Behind the SF we draft and JJ.

    What's the fascination over Sonny Weems? He's really a deep bench player. Now that we have Forbes I say stick with him, until we can get someone better. If we do not get a SF in the draft (my hope is we get the #1 pick and land Davis), then we should go after one like Gay, Batum, Chandler or Young. Next year is moving past the rebuild.. Weems is a step backwards in my opinion.

    I view Forbes as more of a 3.

    So last year was a rebuild.

    This year is building.

    Next year is interior decorating? (jk)


    FWIW, I certainly agree with Weems. He doesn't bring anything to the table that is better than guys under contract for next year - JJ, Forbes, Kleiza - on the wing.

    I can't believe Weems would speak so negatively about himself

    First thing he needs to do is work on just playing bad on the road instead both home and away.
