    I am surprised BC isnt amnestying anyone, specifically Amir. Great bench player, not worth the $6 mill hit though.
    I'm assuming a trade will be made that involves either Amir or Davis, so no point using amnesty, since we'll need one of them at backup PF. Besides, unless there's a big signing/trade that is imminent, there's no point to rush to use the amnesty now. I think they'll probably just keep it for next offseason, when they could still use it on Amir/Kleiza.

    no thats not wat i said, if we are going to waste money on some one like fields who we believe has the POTENTIAL to be MEDIOCRE and will never justify his contract. and by no means i am saying we should keep jj. but instead, we could have dumped all da expiring salary like jj, jose, eddie, forbes and other small assets to atlanta( which is exactly what Brooklyn did) for Joe Johnson.
    this is exactly how competitive teams are built, not by paying nash and fields a total of close to 60 mil over 3 years!!!
    My memory might be failing me, but what competitive team with no all-star already there was built by trading for someone they'll have to pay close to 90 million over 4 years starting when that guy is already 31 untill he is almost 35; a player who looks past his peak and in two years (when he still has two years left on his albatros contract) will be top 10 among active players in total minutes played? I'm not exactly wondering why Atlanta traded him.

    Maybe signing Nash and Fields was not a good idea, but trading for Johnson certainly wasn't.

    JJ is a dam good player and who said he went 29th overall, he went 16th...why ppl hating on his offensive game? what u wanna see? lebron james style dunk, 3 pointers from halfcourt, jump from the free line throw all day...is that consider good offense to ppl when they talkign about how he lacked offensively. JJ had greattttt Defense and GOOD offense dont know what you all talkign about...wayy better than Linas Klieza, mr. brickcity european player who fell on his ass when he was trying to do some post moves. If Klieza could play for the raptors like how he played for Denver then I wouldn't care bout JJ but this is a BADDDDD TRADE.BC just trying to look busy so he dont lose his job, JJ is gona kill the raptors when they play the kings.

    We could have had Bynum for Bosh.
    So we would have a knucklehead player who is on the clock to leave. Ill pass.
