    Depends on if he truly wanted Fields or not.

    It also raises yet another question about DD's future in Toronto.
    Bayless as well

    Ahhhhhhh, well that is not nearly as bad for year 3 but still kind of sucks for year 1 and 2.

    Fields at $6.67M? Hmmmmmmm
    Oh, I agree it's pricey at first. But if it lands us Nash, I think he'll be quite able to make Fields a $7M player.

    I'm not sure Barbosa was a great contract though - lol - better than Turk that is for sure!
    True.. I'd rather have Chandler at that price tag, but this was a way to ensure NY stays away from Nash. So in that regards it was a no brainer for BC. But I think a $6.7M contract would be easy to move in this league. Heck if Joe Johnson, Luke Walton, or Gilbert Arenas can be traded, anyone can.

    Default Skillz!

    I love the manoeuvring/c0ck blocking. Landry can do a little bit of everything except hustle. He does lots and lots of that. NYK sorely misused Fields since Melo came aboard and I'd love to have him. He's like JJ only, ya know, a real basketball player.

    Landry can play SF, Derozan is safe

    Nash, Bayless
    Derozan, Ross
    Fields, Johnson
    Bargs, Ed
    Val, Amir

    Im a big fan of starting next year with this roster.

    Look, it's win-win. It knocks the knicks out of the Nash chase completely even if they do match. If he comes here, great. He's a solid 2 way player that fits casey's system perfectly and lord knows Nash will be good for him.

    For those of you who were curious about him being too short to be a small forward... he's 6'6.5 barefoot so he is most likely at the very least 6'7.5 in shoes and i think that 6'7.5 is plenty height for small forward does anybody know if he is an above average ball handler?
    Whoever told you skies the limit is looking dumb because I'm 22 and i'm moonwalking on the sun.

    Two glimmers of hope Knicks fans: 1. All verbal agreements aren't binding until 7/11. Fields could back out & agree to s&t with Knicks-Suns

    Assuming we obtain Fields, we would have a wing rotation which would look like this:

    DeRozan, Ross, Fields, *Kleiza, *Johnson

    Not bad. A bunch of guys that all have different skill sets creating very rounded wing depth and skill.

    Excellent rebounder for his size... High basketball IQ... Makes the most of what he has... Fine shooter... Has developed an effective three-point shot... Strong, but not very athletic.

    These media are f*cking clowns.

    They really think everything that Dolan sh!ts out is gold?

    All those players are scrubs - including Shupert because he blew out his ACL and is a big unknown.

    I feel confident that the Suns would rather Calderon or Bayless than that mish-mash of garbage - just my opinion.

    20 mil for Landry Fields. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. Are we taking bets for when the next lockout will be?

    id have to agree.. if im the suns id rather let nash walk for nothing then take NY's bagage handlers in a S&T.. thed have to be more willing to take Jose that that crap.. unless they are truelly insane

    Sign and trade Nash for all NY's garbage. Shumpert is in the garbage bin, in my opinion, after his knee injury.
