I think this new management is high on length and bidirectional players.  The culture just didn't fit with DSJr. With the product we are now seeing in Milwaukee and Toronto, I still think there are long term strategic plans by this management.  Iwundu and Birch are young players that fit this mold, and are currently being developed.  Curious:  Could Iwundu be groomed as a PG?  I read he played some PG in college. 

And that's fine but you can have tunnel vision on specific ability or abilities and lose sight of just pure raw talent.

I dunno about Iwundu as a PG. Yeah he played some in college I believe and that's a possibility but odds say yeah right.

I’d beg to differ. Their decision not to get a starting caliber pg via the draft is gonna haunt us. 

I really like Dsj but the odds of him staying healthy are not in his favor. he lands too awkwardly too often and already has a track record

Maybe or a defensive player who defend 1-3 but we still lack a starting pg if that's the case.

Bradley is not a pg and I don't like any of those options for us.

 

I dont know what options you like but I will take Evans over Payton 10 out of 10 times.  

Bradley came to the league listed as a 6 ‘ 2 PG but in 2014 Boston began playing him  next to Rondo as a PG/SG combo. He flourished playing off the ball as a SG in offense and PG in the defensive end.  

After Rondo, it was thomas and now it is jackson. He is surely capable to play the PG position.  

With All thay said, I dont think he will be a person to consider. 

The only ones I am interested is Evans, Teague and maybe Lin. We have to  be creative with trades prior the deadline if we decide to go this route to open room in our cap space. 

Our best option is to find a quality PG via trade.

Seriously though.  We need to talk more about biz only allowing 39% fg% within 6 feet over the last 9 games.  That's also with 1.3 bpg in only 16.8 mpg. 

Our defensive rating for this timeframe with biz on the court is 99.8 which is very good.  When biz is on the bench we have a 112.6 defensive rating which is garbage.  

The problem is  biz's impact on the offense has been terrible. But i wonder how much of that is trash lineups with mack and hezonja or afflalo
