    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.

    that's actually a decent lineup I wouldn't be ashamed of. Playoffs here we come! woooooh!

    I've never been so proud of BC! In the words of Axl Rose:

    You wanna f*ck with me?
    Don't f*ck with me.


    Nevermind the fact I do like Fields and his girlfriend is smoking hot.
    Why is paying $20 million over 3 years a good move for the Raps for essentially a bench player?

    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
    Plus Brooks is a shoot first, shoot second PG and Marshall is hardly ready to start, in my opinion.

    Brooks off bench.
    Calderon allows Marshall to get his feet wet and adjust to NBA.

    I guess a worse case scenario would be if the Knicks do sign Nash then the likelihood of the Raptors signing Lin looks pretty good as well. So, its a nice "Plan B" to fall back on, don't you think?

    Why can we not do a S&T involving Calderon, Kleiza, and our trash?

    Also, if NewYork DOES get Nash, are we happy with Lin?

    before the NY melo drama.. Fields was playing really well.. was considered by most to be the steal of his draft year.. since Melo has a habit of hogging the spotlight it hasnt left much room for anyone else to do anything.. melo has destroyed that team IMO.. i expect if we do get Fields He'll have a bouce back year..

    Yeah I saw comments like him being a 'lock-down defender' (have you all watched Fields play for the Knicks the last 2 years? He's no lock-down defender) or reverting to his 8ppg averages in his rookie year.

    If Nash wasn't considering signing here would everyone be as joyous about this signing as they are now? lol

    This is getting insane

    Fields was a starter in his rookie season, if he build off of his performance then, we are getting a good, improving, young, Dwanye Casey starter for 6.67mil/yr

    Fields is a solid role player. Why pay a role player $20 million over 3 years?

    Role player who can shoot the three, defend, hustle, and high IQ. Im sure he is going to blossom over his years here! He is one of those veteran young players.

    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?
    He only has an average wingspan though: 6"9

    I think Landry can play small forward (better than DeMar or Weems anyways), but I was hoping that we could get a better scoring SF whom could also play the role of the closer. Still I would grade the addition of Landry as a solid base hit.....now we need a homer from BC to drive the run in.

    And last year a rookie took his job.

    How good is he that he is worth that type of money? It's not a large contract but for a role player it is quite a increase in pay without much upside.

    Is there any chance this backfires in BC's face? Like Nash gets pissed because we're limiting his options and signs with Dallas?
    that's what jumped to my mind. Can we just look at this as we want Fields for $20 million. If not and it's a tactical thing to knock out NY, what does that say about our chances in the first place for Nash? If he's debating the best place to go, we blackmail (sorry, just using Dwight-speak) out one of his options? Not a good vibe. Nash to Dallas and Fields to us. ughhh

    Nooooooo....Id much prefer we stuck with Jose then sign Lin... if BC signs Lin he is Linsane!!LOL

    i doubt it comes to that anyway as im sure Nash will be a Rap. why on earth would nash want to watch melo play iso all night he'd be scratching his eyes out buy mid season for sure..

    If Bryco can get rid of DD for anything, and this Fields move messes up NYC deal, I'm going to from "Punch Bryan when I see him " status to "High five Bryan when I see him" status. IF he manages any other good deals there is a chance I change to "Hug Bryan when I see him"
