You already know what's going to happen.They are going make D Wade play the point. Run D Wade into the ground. Why didn't they just sign a younger vetern point guard Did they really need to bring back a 68 year old Gary Payton. Payton got us through last year by the grace of GOD!

If WRIGHT cant play Point Guard by now, then hes WRONG for the team, i mean please, 3 years now, and hes still considered a rookie, its time to move on and trade the guy...maybe for a guy named "Gerald Fitch", a guy who really reminded me of a younger version of Tony Parker

Dorell Wright is a 6-9 shooting guard. He'll be able to play SF when he bulks up in a year or two. He's pretty talented, so a definite keeper.
Though I don't know why Riley hasn't called Gerald Fitch in for training camp. He's a proven 3rd point guard. Solid pace, can shoot the three and - and that's the most important - he CAN defend the point!

Dude, why does everyone want Wright to be a PG? The guy is a future SF! Just because he can handle the ball does not make him a PG.

He was drafted as a swingman (SG/SF) and that's what he's going to be.

Khalid Reeves is more of a shooting guard in a point guards body. I think you want someone like Sherman Douglas or Bimbo Coles. Perhaps John Crotty, as his whiteness might fool casual observes that he is J-Will. He will need to get some temporary tattoos.

I am a Daniel Horton fan as well!!! I think he has the best all around game teamed up with excellent court sense.
