Someone is going to.

 

I just can't stand the thought of it being us.

I think Blatche would be a nice big off the bench for Al. Will probably need a backup pg and while I respect Sessions, My first option would be Devin Harris and then Patty Mills. While those guys are unrestricted, the one restricted that jumps out at me is Chandler Parsons. Chandler would be a fantastic number 3 option for us behind Al and Kemba.

Blatche is one of the guys I'd like to add.

I don't want to give up on Biz because he still has some untapped potential in my opinion, but if our goal is to win now then we need an immediate upgrade at the backup center position.

Biz is only 21 and doesn't have many miles on his body so letting him sit and develop for an extra two years while playing sparingly isn't necessarily a bad thing. A guy like Biz (who doesn't have many miles) could easily play until he's 35.

Personally, I think we should amnesty Haywood and sign Andray Blatche/Jason Smith/Emeka Okafor to back up Al and give us bench production at the five spot.

C: Jefferson, Blatche/Smith/Okafor, Biyombo

Cant amnesty... used it on Tyrus Thomas. Only get 1. Just cut Haywood if we don't want him its only for 2 mill.

 

Parsons would be a guy I would like, I would take him way before I'd consider Gordon Hayward. 

 

Not sure on Blatche, like his skills but he is a bit of a headcase Washington begged people to take from them. I would rather look to Ed Davis, Jason Smith, Jordan Hill or Patrick Patterson. Stay with the youth and continue to build. Any of them could have potential to take backup min behind Zeller 2-3 yrs down the road.

We can't amnesty Haywood. In fact, we picked him up from Dallas after they amnestied him. They are on the hook for most of his salary.

Tyrus's contract is up this year I thought, and Blatche has been fine in Brooklyn; no problems whatsoever.

Nvm, clause doesn't reset until 2016.

Amnesty was a one-time-only thing, though it'll probably be brought back after the next lockout.

Parsons- 38 MPG, 16.6 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 4 APG, Shoots 47% (That is also a career avg) with 37% from three. 75% Free Throw shooter and averages 1.9 turnovers a game.

 

Hayward- 36 MPG, 16.2 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 5.2 APG, shoots 41% and 30% from three. 81% free throws and averages 2.8 turnovers a game. 

 

Parsons is a better shooter who can still attack the rim off the dribble. He would fit in nice with Kemba and kick-outs from Big Al. Parsons is same size and has more athleticism. Parsons is a better player than people give credit. Always gets overlooked but provides top 10 SF numbers. Hayward is a good player but to laugh at the other option when stats show the truth.

All good, I would be hesitant to mess with team chemistry for a player with that many questions and not great reward. At best he is a fill in starter to good backup... Not worth the risk to me when others are comparable players with less questions.

While I agree that Parsons is a better player and I would prefer him, Hayward has a much heavier offensive burden on him on a terrible Utah team than Parsons does on a really loaded (at least offensively) roster.

Parsons isn't going anywhere. His contract is structured so that if they can't reach a long-term deal, Houston has the option to keep him cheap for one more year.
