Wells will be a FA. I don't want him, he is a head case but I remember his first couple of years in Portland, he was real good. Reckon a team like Knicks are likely to get him

Yeah, the Knicks really suck. YOu can pretty much take the name of any headcase player who's available and say the Knicks are likely to get ______
Basketball hope in the City Of Dope?

yea, owner james dolan and head coach isiah thomas easily fall in love with those type of players. it's like watching a 14 year old girl saying she easily falls for guys.

Rumor has it that Wells may be headed to Indy... Detroit tried to get him, too, but they have just signed Flip Murray, so I don't think they'd be interested now.

Bird has to get rid of Jackson otherwise there will be a logjam at SG

They're trying, nobody seems interested.

When he wants to, Wells can be a great sG. I remember in the Blazers, he used to score at will and he almost beat the Mavs pretty much by himself in the playoffs some four seasons ago

Didn't the Pacers move Jackson to the Mavs for Darrell Armstrong and a couple picks?

Nope. It was Anthony "Nate Dogg" Johnson.

Oh, my bad. But there would be a logjam at SF, not SG, since Jackson IMO is a SF plus Granger

Well, he played SF for Atlanta, but since he came to Indy, he's been playing SG, first with Artest (although both changed there positions often), and later with Peja.

Yeah, I think Stephen Jackson has adjusted to the 3.

Back on topic...

I would like to have Wells and he would be a definite upgrarde over Dunleaky but I would rather have Odom. If Odom isn't available then Wells is next best choice. (I never even wanted Harrington).

Wells most certainly is an upgrade over dun but it's Wells's attitude that is the big risk

I don't want Wells. Attitude, lack of outside shot, too small to play SF... No, thanks.
