    JA Adande is reporting through twitter that Matt Barnes has resigned with the Clips for 3 years and $11m....  This would have been a good deal for the Blazers to swoop in and get.  With Barnes off the board, that lessens the list of players who could help the Blazers bench. Who do y'all think we should go after now? I also hope Neil is able to package JJ up before we lose him for nothing. I say we use him and Lopez to go after Asik, as it is rumored, he wants nothing to do with being D12's backup. (Don't get me wrong, I'll be satisfied with Lopez if that's what we have, but I would love to see what else we can do). What you all think?

    Haha, waiting for you to say that meese. You know what I think of Matt Barnes. His only offensive game is 3s which he isn't even that good at. He's not actually a great defender, he's just dirty.

    I am a fan of Raymond Felton. Haha, seriously though I'm a fan of Batum's Lobs and JJ's Slams.

    We need a little toughness of the bench. Someone not afraid to get dirty, commit a hard foul, plus while he is not Ray Allen from deep he has range and shot 46% overall last year.

    His jumpers were 34%. He did finish layups excellently though.

    His 46% shooting would have been 3rd best on our team last year behind Leonard and LA

    JJ. And we are a jumper team, we get layups, but we don't call them for a guy like Matt Barnes. He feasted off CP3's steals.

    That is right because we have no transition game for him to excel in.

    You are right on that. If we get Dame in the open court, look out. If we get Barton in the open court, also, look out, lol. Remember when Lamarcus would dunk on you every chance he got. All those sweet running pick and roll oops with Rudy, Dr Dre tossing up oops. That's what we need to do more of.

    I'm much happier getting Wright than Barnes. Dorrel is a more consistent shooter than Barnes, plays defense almost as well, and is a better rebounder too. He'll thrive with CJ kicking out to him for open threes. Great move for the Blazers, couldn't be happier.

    Our bench looks like this:

    pg   CJ

    sg    Crabbe/Barton

    sf     Wright/Barton/Claver

    pf     T-Rob

    c      Leonard

    Not bad once we get them all working together.  Could be dangerous

    Barnes is freakin reality show dude, he LOVES California. I bet he takes less money to go to LA over PDX if we did have interest in him.


    I HATE that we are so bad in transition. Lillard didn't look that great on the break imo. That is probably because Batum and Matthews are so bad. Now with McCollum, Wright and maybe Crabbe we can finally get some easy buckets.

    Dorell has the grit without the parole officer. I'm way happier getting him than I would've been with Barnes. So to answer the post's question: I couldn't care less that Barnes signed with the Clips. We can actually have a decent defensive lineup if we put Wes and Dorell on the floor together with T-Rob/LA and Lopez. It's also my contention that Dame will come back a better defender than he was. You can believe he's working on lateral quickness while watching hours of film. That kid eats, breathes, and sleeps basketball. 


    Did I mention the aforementioned unit can score? They can. With Barnes, you have to give up offensive production for defense. Wes and Dorell are knock-down shooters. We're doing well this off season.
