No it looks like he's been pretty bad in his two other stints and he got quite a bit of time in Miami but they were a few years ago. Pop said good things about him and he's been a top guy in the D-league. Might just need the right team. At 28 he should be in his prime. Can shoot. They need that. He will probably get a chance with all the inuries now too.
Chances look pretty high that not only do they keep their two picks but that those guys will be available based on mock drafts. They only need one pick as far as I'm concerned with the other young guys they have so they better move up if they have to. Suppsedly they have talked to GS about trading the pick to them even if GS finishes out of top 7.
Better in the Jazz system? Everybody on ISH just rated George ahead of Hayward who the Jazz drafted ahead of George. I doubt George would be as good as G in the Jazz system though.
Marshall sounds most like a Jazz type of pg. Lillard doesn't but they like local guys and they need a shooter. But who knows Corbin might be able to think outside the box more than Sloan and they might go for someone that doesn't fit their old mold and run the offense through G and Millsap and eventually Burks and whomever they get to run with them at the one? Right now they need to be looking at who will best fit with Millsap and G because they are the guys they should be building around based on what I've been seeing despite all the love Favors and Jefferson get.
Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo told me it’s “possible’’ next season he could average 15 assists, which would break NBA record, but says it'd be “difficult.’’ “I got great guys around me that can make shots, so it’s possible,’’ said Rondo, who has averaged 14.1 his last 16 games. Rondo wants to take shot at John Stockton's NBA record of 14.5. Teammate Keyon Dooling believes he will. “I really honestly believe like 14 or 15. I believe that next year he’ll average around that,’’ Dooling said. Sulia
