Resign Dooling!!! If he goes to Dallas or Utah he will be in a great situation. Both teams have systems where the guards attack. Also, he would be backing up two of the top point guards in our league. I think he would be more appreciated in the West. Dooling should get average salary in this league and last time I checked average salary was between 4 and 5 mil/per. Just as Deaf Ears stated above we didn't lose to Detroit because of our gaurd play. Our bigs turned the ball over. Many times our gaurds and our bench kept us in the game until our Big 3 were ready to play. That being said pay the guy what he deserves or what we value him to our team or he'll get it from someone else. Keep this team together and add through the draft.

Maggette is not going to sign for the mid-level....wishful thinking. We need a distributor, something we don't currently have on the roster.
How is that Ariza trade working out. Let's see, Evans will leave for free agency, so we will get nothing in return. And then there is Cook, a stiff with 2 yrs left on his contract. Great trade.
Im watching Ariza get punked by Paul Pierce in the Finals. Looks like a good trade to me.
This is a big off season for Otis. 6 or 7 free agents. He might sign 1 or 2. That means he had to pick up 5 or 6 new players and make the team better. That will be a tought task. We'll see if he is worth the new extension. I think he can do it. At least trade Redick so LMAO can go somewhere else to post his bs.

god all the ricans get old with the incessant get rid of jameer crap..fact is arroyo has been a pg for 3 different teams and he couldnt win or keep the starters role on any. in my opinion he can go back to PR and sell oranges or brew rum or whatever it is they do on that third world country

Answer: Boston, Cleveland, Washington, Chicago, Miami, Detroit.

Question: Who signs Keyon if Orlando does not sign him.

That is the reality of the situation. If the Magic let Dooling go, he makes one of the Magic's conference rivals better.

Once Arroyo is finally gone, we can have a basketball forum again, and not a racial war with the ricans.
Anyway, Dooling is a decent player and it would be good to keep him for a fair price, but he certainly isnt worth the mid level. I dont think he has earned a raise from what he is making now. We need a pass first PG and a big bruiser down low and a solid SG. Those should be the priorities.

maggette is too expensive i think otis should go after pietrus or jr smith i am tired of people saying trade turk i dont think those people saw a lot of magic games he was great for us otis should trade expiring contracts and jj redick for al harrington or chris wilcox or haslem battie is not going to cut it long term at pf a cheap fix would be two sign both kwame and jamal magliore so there is a solid rotation of bigs coming in also a must have would be brandon rush or cdr in the draft this is what i would do if i was otis but knowing otis he wont do nothing at all because he likes his team

Whoever signs Dooling will have a problem, Dooling is not a pg and the Magic will better off without him. The Magic need a real pg in place of Dooling a player like Duhon.

And for those who say that Dooling home is Orlando are incorrect Fort Lauderdale, FL is Dooling's home it's where his father and mother live and where he maintains his primary home. So there is a very good chance that the Heat will get Dooling since his family want him to come back home.
I don't see the Magic giving Dooling the kind of money that he is asking for so instead the Magic will be going after a real pg free agent who can help the Magic now.
----------

Evans is not a lock for the Magic as well since he asking for triple what he earned this past season. I have been reading where many experts do not see the Magic paying him triple maybe half, but not triple.
I can understand why he is doing this since this will be the last time that he can go after a large contract. Remember everyone Evans is 30 this year so how many years do you really think he has left in his career.

More equal than others??? That statement shows that your education was not equal to what the other kids in your trailor park received. If sarcasm and ignorance is all you have to offer, why not just share that with your family.

It's sad that God's name is used to promote ignorance. To suggest that God would bless America only is dumb. I am an American and thought that you should know that Puerto Rico is part of the US. Stop judging others and start loving people. if you want to spread hate, go to Puerto Rico and tell the people how you feel.

This is a basketball forum, not a place for racist.
