Sign dragic, ditch bellinelli, make jjack the first guard off the bench w grevous getting the rest of the backcourt minutes.
I think George Hill's another guy that we should consider. I think he's a restricted FA this summer and Collison appears to be ahead of him in the Pacers pecking order.
Good research. I think Dragic is probably the best option in absolute terms, but I think Hill might be the better value because folks will kinda be sleeping on him because he's had an off year playing behind Collison, so we wouldn't have to pay him as much. I rate both of them ahead of Augustin because DJ is a pretty bad shooter. What do you think we should do with Jack? I think we should trade him if we're not going to use him as a backup 2 guard.
Yep, Hill is also RFA this summer. However, We have seen Dragic carry his team very well during the absence of Lowry. He was the player of the week last week he led them to I think 10/16 wins and he showed signs of becoming a quality player in this league. Hill is also a quality player but has been inconsistent partly due to the timeshare between him and Collison. Here is a list of some noteable FA PG's this summer: Restricted FA's: Goran Dragic George Hill D.J. Augustine Jeremy Lin :) Jerryd Bayless Aaron Brooks Unrestricted FA's: Raymond Felton Steve Nash Andre Miller Jason Kidd Nash-Miller-Kidd are too old. Felton is too unreliable. So, all potential PG's for our Hornets are restricted. From the RFA list, Dragic-Augustine would be my first 2 choices followed by Hill and Brooks. Suns will most likely lose Nash to a contender and will want to keep Brooks. This would leave Dragic-Hill and Augustine out there. I am sure Bobcats will invest on Kemba Walker and Rockets will lean on Kyle Lowry. So, IMO both Dragic and Augustine will be available. Dragic might be our new international sensation or D.J. might be our next local favourite. :)
I also hope we will go after Dragic. He is playing great lately. If we make a good offer for him, hopefully Rockets will not match since they have Kyle Lowry and they might not want to tie long-term money to a back-up PG. Dragic was part of the failed CP3 trade, so he might not be in the long term plans of the Rockets since they are thinking of Lowry as their starting PG for years to come. Greivis may be a great back-up PG. EG10 will be starting SG and it is J-Jack's contract year next season. So, bring him off the bench as the 6th man. He should play really good. :)
