    I don't think you understand how win shares are calculated.

    I don't see how the stats support your claim. The average PER always hovers around 15. His oppPER indicates that he'll be an average or marginally above average defender at best.
    +/- is one of the most useless stats in basketball. It's more dependent on the quality of a player's teammates than any other stat.

    Case in point: Josh Harrellson has a 8.5 +/-
    Key phrase was 'sufficient minutes played'.

    Harrellson doesn't quite meet the parameters of that phrase.

    I am thinking we didn't because we had to go the $6.67 route. Thusly used our cap space ??
    I'm pretty sure this falls under the Gilbert Arenas provision.

    It is same principle as what Houston is using to try and get Asik.

    All contract gripes aside, I'm not sure where this Fields-is-a-bad-defender stuff is coming from. I'm not going to throw out any stats, just a few observations to quell some of the vitriol.

    1) Fields is a 3. He's got SF size, lacks SG speed, and rebounds like a forward. Everything about his game indicates that he should be played at the 3, not the 2. As a result, making him play the 2 (see: C. Anthony) is going to make it tougher for him on defense.

    2) I watched a decent amount of knicks games. Fields was consistently asked to guard the best wing on the floor (whether that was to keep Anthony out of foul trouble, or just because Fields was the better defender, who knows). Again, that is going to (especially statistically) influence his perceived defensive abilities.

    3) Nothing fancy here: he passes the eyeball test. Watch some footage -- the guy is a solid defender. Moves his feet, closes out well, rotates well, uses his weight effectively, boxes out well etc.
    At no time did I indicate that Fields was a poor defender. I simply responded to the notion that he is a lock-down defender which is not true and a huge exaggeration.

    I think even if you could do that, you'd never work as a GM again. Good luck talking to any agents.
