Tallest guard in the rotation is 6’3.
kind of awkward but speed and decision making and low turnover rate will alleviate the lack of height imo
Devin has a history of injuries. Felton is an unknown right now. Its a wise signing.
good points! :)
It just makes the guard rotation so small.
Gal Mekel will get 0 minutes basically. I’m concerned about the shooting guard position? I don’t feel like Carlisle is gonna give Ricky Ledo significant minutes. idk. 4 point guards is one too many especially when what we really needed was a backup for Dirk and Chandler

I like the idea behind it. Having 3 experienced point guards is a luxury and like other have stated, it allows for the game to be played up-tempo all the way through, since they’ll all get a good amount of rest. He also adds perimeter shooting which we need: his career percentage from 3 is like 37% so that’s exciting. Anyway. I just really want preseason to hurry up and get here so I can see what everyone looks like together.
Oop I’m behind on news updates.
Busy day for the front office today as Rashard Lewis’ contract was voided. However, no time was wasted in signing Al-Farouq Aminu, a 23 year old forward, to replace him. Another move was made today to add depth at PG in bringing in Jameer Nelson.
This leaves one roster spot— remember that Eric Griffin’s contract is non-guaranteed, and it’s being speculated that Sarge aka Bernard James will be staying on as backup center.
Anonymous said: Is Rashard Lewis gone forever? Or what because he seems like a legit backup for dirk :(
I think so :/ We don’t know how intensive a procedure it is and what the recovery time will be so it seems like the front office is gonna try to sign someone else or save the money for later in the season.
This puts the roster at 12 I believe? So 3 more available with 2 veteran minimums and the 2.7 million dollar exception.
Also: NBA is monitoring the case of Raymond Felton, who was sentenced to 500 hours of community service and fined $5K in a gun case in NY.
Anonymous said: did you want the spurs or the heat to win this year?
I was torn because I hate the Heat but I wanted the Mavs to be the only team to have beaten them in the lebron era. But in the end, I was rooting for the spurs. Respect for Tim Duncan.
