Bobcats Acquire Gary Neal, Luke Ridnour

75 posts in this topic

Solid move.

Neal is a solid shooter that can also knock down the three.

I'm not a fan of Ridnour but his deal is expiring so it appears that he was just an add in.

Overall it appears like we acquired Neal for at least two years and only lost one million in cap space in the process.

Good trade.

 

Ridnour can run the PnR very well.  He's a traditional PG that we can use instead of the ball hog driver Sessions is.  I don't think we lost out here but gained.  I don't mind this trade.  Two things I always thought we needed was more shooting and more of a passing PG.  So not bad.

We're trying to play the inside out game with Big Al, so bringing in a guy like Neal who is an above-average 3 pt shooter for a guy like Sessions who is a below-average 3 pt shooter makes perfect sense to me. 

 

Ridnour can replace Sessions PG minutes AND he's an expiring contract.

Adding Ridnour makes no sense at all for the Bucks...  I don't get it, but I like it.

Maybe they got those beer goggles on with Sessions.  On paper the guy looks good, almost like he could start.  Then you start watching him and how he goes full retard half the time, and you realize.....

Could be, but he actually played for the Bucks before so, I don't see how they'd forget.  We won that trade big time.

A small move but we acquired depth in the back court, still have Ben Gordon's contract, and both the Detroit and Portland's picks. Bravo! Smarter front office than I thought.
