re: Free agent acquisitions that make sense and realistic - TigerinATL
[quote]Getting to the salary floor should not be difficult for us, so there is no reason to get involved in the craziness just to spend money.[/quote] The Salary Floor is a pretty weak incentive/penalty for spending money. What will push teams to spend money is that for most of them doing nothin...

re: The appeal of re-signing Ryno - TigerinATL
I get the math, but from a roster construction perspective Ryno only makes sense if you can secure the perimeter better. If $9 million doesn't get you a wing defender you're basically running it all back for the 3rd year in a row hoping that you're finally healthy. Hope is not a plan....

re: Greg Monroe Interest? - TigerinATL
[quote]he has to also not look like a corpse first.[/quote] I still think the window to move him is the 2017 offseason, but if all a team needs is to see that he's currently healthy, I believe he's playing for Turkey this summer. As for Monroe as a 6th man, I wouldn't be against that in terms ...

re: Free agent acquisitions that make sense and realistic - TigerinATL
[quote]After July 4 is interesting[/quote] It just means he or his agent knows where he stands in the market. Just like we're going after Batum and Parsons first, so will most teams. Wait for that to sort itself out and then maybe instead of 1 or 2 teams talking to you you have 4-5 in a bidding...

[quote]After this year, the comparison will be Omer Asik at $11M vs. Greg Monroe at $30M. I'm taking Asik at $11M and not looking back.[/quote] Yeah, I wouldn't want this trade just because I think there's a chance we keep Monroe. Dump Asik for nothing as soon as you can (2017 at the earliest) o...

re: How much longer before Doctors are obsolete? - TigerinATL
Doctors/Lawyers etc. becoming obsolete is sort of the wrong way to look at it. We aren't moving towards an automated world so much as a self help world. Think of it like the self checkout at the grocery store. You may be able to get diagnosed and even treated without even talking to a human for 8...

re: Greg Monroe Interest? - TigerinATL
If they think that swapping a defensive center for Monroe is a big part of where things went wrong for them, and there's a good bit of evidence suggesting it's a pretty big piece, then they need to replace Monroe with a defensive center. Pachulia/Biyombo/etc will get more money and years than Asik ...

re: Tim Frazier tendered his QO, now Restricted - TigerinATL
For those of you who gave up on the season early, Tim Frazier is a point guard we picked up late in the season when he got cut by Portland. He averaged 13.5 ppg 7.5 ast and 4.4 reb while shooting 42% from 3 and a 19.1 PER in 29 MPG. All of that is way above his normal averages, and he played d...

re: Tim Frazier tendered his QO, now Restricted - TigerinATL
Here is a list of FA backup PGs. There's 24 of them and I'd say Frazier is probably in the middle tier of this list. And this isn't counting guys that just got drafted or teams that already have their backup PGs in place. Yeah there's a big supply of money out there, but there is also a pretty bi...
