He is probably like Jeremy Shockey.  I was not a fan of his (to say the least) until he played for the Panthers and then I fugging loved him.  JR Smith would probably be the same way.

I decided to look at all the shooting guard free agents and put them in categories...

Upper Tier
J.R. Smith
Gerald Henderson (RFA)
O.J. Mayo

Semi-Upper Tier
J.J. Redick
Kevin Martin
Andre Iguodala

Middle Tier
Manu Ginobli
Ray Allen
Alan Anderson
Nick Young
Mike Dunleavy
Marco Belinelli
Tony Allen

Lower Tier
Wayne Ellington (RFA)
Damien Wilkins
Francisco Garcia
Daniel Gibson
Roger Mason Jr.
Leandro Barbosa
Anthony Morrow
Garrett Temple (RFA)
Xavier Henry
Daequan Cook
Tracy McGrady
Elliot Williams

Do you take one of these guys or draft McLemore, Oladipo, or McCollum?

I don't want the contract, but I do think JR Smith as the focal point of the offense would be amazing. Any given game he could score 40 or shoot 3-30. Probably more of the latter, but either way it would be a sight to see. We would still be terrible, so it wouldn't really hurt us as far as draft position. But he's not the long term answer.

If we dont land McLemore tomorrow, and are eager to get a SG I would go hard after OJ.

 

But, if that's the case (Hendo or Redick), I'm "ALL IN" for J.R. Smith. Do not want Redick!

This thread was pretty much made with the idea that we didn't get a 2 guard in the draft. After watching that NBA job interview thing on ESPN, I am convinced even more so of my preference of drafting Oladipo. I think he's going to end up like DWade in his prime.

If we don't get him or McLemore (who I don't want), then Smith is my top option in FA.

I find it very hard to want Oladipo. If we didn't have MKG, I'd pull hard for Vic, but we do.

Smith, Henderson, or Mayo needs to be a BuzzCat if we don't address the shooting guard position in free agency.

I like JR Smith and agree he would be an upgrade, but I would rather make a strong push for Monta Ellis as he is a better scorer and defender.  I know it sounds crazy, but after watching Nate Robinson this year vs The Heat, I would almost rather have him than Smith as well... probably get him cheaper too.

Neither could start with Kemba...

 

Nate is purely a point guard and Ellis is a combo guard.

 

Milwaukee is prepared to let one of Brandon Jennings or Monta Ellis walk (and let the remaining player play the point), because they can't play together and because that back court is too small.

 

Even our back court is small with Kemba and Henderson, but at least Henderson plays defense.

 

Keep in mind that this will be the second back court that Ellis has broken up (Curry and Ellis).

 

Also Kemba averaged a not too shabby 17.7 points per game, so I wouldn't be so sure that he would defer to Ellis.

 

I'm not denying Ellis' talent because he is a very good basketball player, but it's hard to see Ellis and Kemba coexisting.

 

I'm really intrigued by Smith because his height would actually give us pretty good size as the first three positions (Kemba, Smith, MKG).
