We need to act quick. The Rockets are rumored to be taking up every hour of the 72 hours they are alotted to match the Parsons offer sheet (screwing with the Mavs).

Go ahead and give him a 4X10 and let's call it an offseason.

I'm not sure 10 will get it done. 11-12 minimum is my opinion to have a real shot at him.

Just my opinion though

The other thing is that the Mavs reportedly are lukewarm on Stephenson because of his antics and might target Ariza and Deng first.

They even scoffed at the mention of Stephenson's name just a month ago.

Mavs want him to play SF, and that would give then a 6'3 and 6'5 SF which they aren't thrilled about

I'm thinking we end up signing Marvin Williams first, then Hinrich, and then Lance. I think that could be affordable.

Kemba (Hinrich)

Stephenson (Henderson)

MKG/Marvin

Vonleh/Marv/Zeller

Jefferson (Biz-Zeller)

Get the big fishes first, then fill in around them.

    • Times change and things evolve. Have you noticed that this year's draft class is the best in many years in the secondary? While the rules may be changing, have you noticed how defenses and players have changed as well? A guy like Fournette could be the thing we need to take advantage of the fact that this year and last year, CBs are being drafted once every 6 players and this year safeties are going to be drafted a ton as well. I think it was Linville and I who were thinking the same thing, that if you really want to get ahead of the current NFL, you do something no one else is building their teams to stop. I'd love to see us get into a real power running game, not a great running game because your QB gets as many yards as your lead back, but a running game that forces the D to not have extra DBs on the field causing play actions to be unstoppable. Maybe I am wrong, but it seems like NFL defenses are trending towards not being able to stop a great running game.
    • At least on mine, the "brackets" on the posting tools now = Bold text. The "smiley/emoticon" now = Italic text. And the old "quote" marks used to quote text in the past is now missing altogether.
    • New details on Stewarts extension: http://www.espn.com/blog/carolina-panthers/post/_/id/25117/source-jonathan-stewarts-deal-worth-8-million-in-base-value "The deal, which has a base value of $8 million, included $1.1 million fully guaranteed at signing, with another $2.5 million coming Stewart’s way Tuesday in the form of a roster bonus. The team created $2.075 million in cap space for 2017 with the deal, as his cap number dropped from $8.25 million to $6.175 million... In sum, the base value of the deal is $4.25 million in 2017 and $3.75 million in 2018."
