Yeah but Mo says he has no other visits scheduled so he will be at home in Flint slumming. Joe needs to either fly him out to Vegas to meet privately or set up a conference call with him and his agent to see exactly what he is looking for. (before somebody else does).
Van Gundy wants to see some defense: South Florida Sun-Sentinel [FONT=Verdana,Arial, Helvetica] [/FONT] Now, that's funny. They got rid of their best defender in Darko. Who is going to play D on that team? Howard is going to block some shots and grab some boards, but who else can step up? They're not going to be able to stop anybody.
Howard spends a lot of time avoiding foul trouble, for good reason. You're right though, they are collecting a bunch of offensive players who don't seem interested in defending. Nelson/ Turk/ Arroyo/ Reddick/ Lewis/ etc. On the other hand, Darko also spent a lot time trying to avoid whistles. Battie and Outlaw are average defenders. Glad we don't have that problem.
It's easier to teach defense to an offensive player than it is to teach offense to a defensive player. You either have a jump shot and/or a crossover, or you don't. Not too many guys pick up those skills a couple years into their careers.
C Webb is either going to Dallas or he is staying here according to espn ESPN - Stein: Heat looking for Mo guard help - NBA
I don't mind resigning CWebb, but only as the backup center who can provide 10-15 mintes when needed and definitely would need to be pulled as soon as the opposing team exploits his lack of D. Of course the next question is do we have a spot available if we decide to bring four from Vegas to the big leagues and another possible FA. It would mean dumping Dupree, not signing Double D and moving Hunter to the bench as the extra coach.
