Lee was a better player defensively and shot the three very well but Bayless has a skill set we need. Ball handling and the pass. He is more than capable. Much cheaper too on an expiring contract. Smart trade.

Smart trade if you are tanking. We'll see how it turns out - hopefully Bayless raises his game. But with Rondo coming back, Defense and Threes wasn't what we needed and ballhandling plus erratic scoring was? No. That's ludicrous. It's like saying that the first Jordan Crawford was soooo good we need a backup. Yeah. !! But once that first sip of koolaide goes down, the worship begins. Worship Bayless!!

Get the fuck out of here Paul. You have turned into a real asshole. Crawl back into the hole you came out of. You are not wanted here anymore.

It's a smart trade because we NEEDED to save the money so we can have more wiggle room for trading so as far to stay below the luxury tax threshold. Is Lee a better player? I think so (especially defensively) but that's not the point of this trade. It was all about the money and skill set that was in more of need than Lee's. Plus, Bayless is an insurance policy just in case we can not retain Crawford in free agency. Not to mention once Lee bitched about his minutes and threw Stevens under the bus, that's when I made up mind that it was time to move on. We need that oh so coveted back up point for Rondo and now we have three to choose from in JC, Bayless and Pressey. Even you know this Paul.

Dick.
