Fear the Turtle

Smith signs a two-year deal, according to the Sun-Times. Moore jumped out of our price range, getting twice as much as he would have in NJ, so that was out. HSCS thinks Tyrus' playing time will likely suffer as a result, but we will have to wait and see how Skiles juggles things. Smith threw up some decent numbers in limited minutes last year and is better down on the block than Peej, it seems. Thoughts?

I saw Joe play the Bulls in Milwaukee during the '04-'05 season and was impressed. Despite his lack of success in the NBA, he still was a #1 overall pick for a reason. Dude has interior post moves and good hands. I'm excited to see what he can do.

Wasn't Joe Smith part of that McHale fiasco that lost Minnesota a bunch of draft picks a few years ago?

Two-year deal is nice.

I happy with the big man rotation - tow vets, two young, energy guys; if Gray or Marty A. can do anything that's just whip cream on top.

Hopefully this will mean a lot less of the Wallace at the five and Noce at the four lineup. As Bengo said to me the other day, Noah, Ty, Deng, Gordon, Hinrich is going to be a fun 5 - hopefully Skiles will use it.
