This sunday was the deadline for players to be playoff eligible if they signed with a new team. For that reason, Joe Smith and Drew Gooden were waived by their teams.
There are rumors that Joe Smith will sign with the Cavaleirs while Gooden is more likely to end up with the Spurs or Mavs. We dont have a lot of money to throw to one of these guys, but the fact that the Spurs seem to be serious contenders this year could make for a ring chasing contract. The Cavs are probably in better shape, but they wont sign both Smith and Gooden. So that leaves the Spurs and the Mavs fighitng for the remaining guy. We are second in the west, the mavs are fighting with the suns to just be in the playoffs.
What do you say PTR? Shall we get Joe Smith or Drew Gooden? Are Kurt Thomas and Oberto playing good enough lately? I think we should go at it. To me it seems like a very low risk-high reward possibilty. Lets face it, we are one piece away from the 'ship, but not a big piece.
