Cant stand to watch him drop his head and barrell into traffic again only to turn it over or throw it out of bounds. Please Otis dont do it.

THud was more of a scoring PG. I would look for a pass first PG.

Doesn't it seem that all NBA PG's that are 3rd stringers were at one time or another with the Magic?

Bring Darrell Armstrong if he is available. We already have an ex-Magic PG in AJ, Why another?

Ok Otis: I am avail; i'm 5-10, 185, played all sports in military; ran my rotti down lately; i take (legal) poppers as supplements and according to my neighbors have a nice pass; could care less about scoring as long as my family won. That's the approach and discipline that I bring to the court...Ok i'm 54, but that's only a number....sign me up for $45K..that will payoff my home....GO MAGIC...I'm Here.

It would be great to pick up DJ Strawberry. He could be kind of like Keyon Dooling with his defense. He had a great preseason with the Rockets but they decided to go with Von Wafer and Aaron Brooks.

Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv Dominates Galil/Gilboa 89 – 70
Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv got off to a great start in the Winner League with a decisive 89 – 70 victory over Hapoel Galil/Gilboa.
By Amy Samin
Maccabi head coach Efy Birenboim moved newcomer Marcus Brown up to the starting lineup, and opened the game with Brown, Carlos Arroyo, Lior Eliyahu, Tal Burstein and D’or Fischer.
Maccabi stormed the court at the start of the third quarter, with sharp, successful offensive plays and tight defense, especially by Eliyahu and Fischer, resulting in a 10 – 2 scoring run and giving the home team a 50 – 36 lead after 3 and a half minutes of play in the quarter.
Maccabi continued to stomp all over their opponents, with two three-pointers from Arroyo brining the fans in the arena to their feet and Maccabi’s lead to 58 – 38 with 4 minutes left in the quarter.
Excellent defense and plenty of fighting on offense kept Maccabi’s lead close to 20 points for the rest of the quarter, while limiting Galil/Gilboa to only 11 points.
Close to the end of the quarter, the visitors were able to close the gap a little, with the score at 62 – 45 in favor of Maccabi at the end of the quarter.
Galil/Gilboa continued to put up a fight, and managed to close the gap still more, bringing the score to 62 – 49 after a basket by Lucas Tischer.
But Maccabi fought back, with shots from downtown by Brown and Arroyo putting the lead back up to twenty, 75 – 55, five minutes into the fourth quarter.
For the remainder of the quarter coach Birenboim tried out different combinations of players, while the crowd sat back and enjoyed the show.
The final score: 89 – 70 to Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Box Scores:
Maccabi: Casspi 18 points, 6 rebounds; Eliyahu 15 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists; Arroyo 14 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists; Brown 11 points; Tre Simmons 8 points; Yaniv Green 7 points; Burstein 5 points; Williams 4, Fischer 4 points, 8 rebounds; Sharp 3 points.
Galil/Gilboa: Randle 15 points; Roberts 13 points; Tischer 13 points; Kadir 11 points.
Head coach Efy Birenboim spoke up after the game:“This victory has an added value.
The players played hard, and played together, and the team as a whole looked different.
One swallow doesn’t bring the spring; the transition from Europe to here included a lot of changes.
Our game tonight went well, but we still need to work on many things.”
“Getting here means knowing that everything is different from any other place you’ve ever been.
You’ve seen that we have talent and can dominate on the court.
We look good if there is confidence.
This was an important victory, and even I enjoyed it.
There’s a lot to work on.
The transition from Europe to Israel demands a lot.
There were many good moments, and I’m happy it ended this way.”
Carlos Arroyo, who had an excellent second half, said:“I think it took me, all of us, some time to get into the game tonight, but in the end we showed that we are a good team on the court, and we really deserved this victory.”
The Puerto Rican complimented the team’s newest player, and said,“I am happy to be working together with a player like Marcus Brown with his experience, his shooting skill and his ability to create shooting opportunities for himself and others.”

Troy Hudson played really well in Minnesota with Garnett. Injury put him away again. He could help. But yes, Pass first PG is the first option or just stick with Hedo/Lee run the show if necessary.
