I'm a Villanova alum and watched Wayns play quite a bit. He definitely has talent but I'm not sure he can ultimately cut it at this level, at least not right now. I don't think we should bother.

Id cut White for West and Thomas for Birdman in a sec


we need perimeter D, Shot blocking and rebounding

seems like a good fit

Lakers waived Darius Johnson-Odom.

I remember some mock drafts had us selecting him rather then Papanikolaou.

Woodson so far has a good track record with knuckleheads (Swish, Crawful). I wouldn't mind West on this team at all.

On the defensive side of the ball, Johnson-Odom gives good effort on this side of the ball and has the upper and lower body strength to defend strong NBA shooting guards. His average size, however, is an issue for someone who is at his best off the ball.

If Johnson-Odom were 6'5” there would be no questions about his ability to contribute at the next level. His ability to make shots from the perimeter and create off the dribble are coveted skills, especially considering his winning pedigree and the intensity he brings on the defensive end.

Johnson-Odom's size may give some teams room for pause, but fortunately for him there is a long list of undersized shooting guards currently seeing extensive playing time in the NBA today. As much as any prospect, the personnel around Darius Johnson-Odom could play a hand in whether a team is able to find a role he could be effective in at the next level.

He plays good defense which is what we need.

Sorry, but I've grown too attached to this 15 man roster. I want nobody to be cut. Kurt Thomas should finish out the season with us and retire a Knick.

Cope has talent, gotta get something in return instead of a waive.

But I doubt anyone gets, waived, moved, or traded, this is the squad, I can dig that.

Same here, Also I wouldnt waive Cope my problem with him is he usually gives up as many points as he scores. I like Cope.

Wayns is total trash. Rather have my Bibby back ribs.
There is no asterisk on ANY N.B.A. titles.
