Apparently you guys aren't quite done, and are now making a push to sign Wes Matthews too. Interesting.

Bullshit. Really?

We must be trading DeMar. Will we land Cousins?

Maybe the plan is to throw out a bunch of smallball lineups featuring Lowry/Derozan/Matthews/Carroll with one of Patterson or JV in the middle.

Casey would love this.

Supposedly DeMar has been heavily involved in the recruitment of Matthews and Carroll, so you could be right.

I like Carroll and Matthews. I'm just not sure about the price tag. Paying premium for a big always make sense though. It's surprising how not more teams are interested in Monroe's services.

Marc Stein @ ESPNSteinLine

ESPN sources say Wes Matthews has had meetings with officials from both Mavs and Raptors so far in free agency 1h

Amir has officially gone. Sad day for the franchise. He's been a brilliant ambassador and never let up. All class.

I think go after Monroe for max or Davis west on a 3 year 38 mill deal, re-sign lou 3 20 mill try adding De cole and Corey Joseph on min deal. PF trade ross for Gallarani or Faried as with both you can use them at the 4 with the ability in some match ups to use if say we get D Gal at the 3 in a small unit to stretch the
posibble

pg lowry wright olo
sg derozan lou (hopefully) wright joseph
sf carroll [pos gallinari faried] patterson bruno
pf[monroe/west]/ bismack/faried patterson bruno
c jv vet luca

Wow!!! Sooo much going on and so fast!! This is an awesome start to free agency.
I'm not too worried about overpaying right now as the cap will increase substantially when new TV deal kicks in. So even if we max out this year we'll have space next year.

Sorry to see Amir go ... but a necessary move on both sides. I think he's given us his best and we shouldn't risk/push the ankles anymore.

Thanks for the details on Carroll ... I'm starting to see the bigger picture here.

As always, Amir has shown his class.

Not too many totally class acts like him left anywhere!!!
Full respects and props to Amir! He'll be missed, but it's all for the best :-)
