Good signing. Although a bit reserved atm because of his mileage

Can't think of anyone to compare him with previously. Rick Fox?

Great signing. Baynes or Ibaka with the MLE and I'd freak with excitement.

A little old for me, but a quality signing nonetheless. He is basically a smaller Danny Green, which is the type of player we need and have a ton of playoff experience and a better jump shot. Good start, seems like FO does have a plan to attack this FA.

Solid move.
Good, but not great D.
Isn't selfish.
Will bring some of the intangibles that Green brought.

Old at 34?? Did y'all expect we can sign any decent young player using the BAE? This is a very good signing!

He provides 3PT shooting. He’ll shoot something like 39% from three, 38% career. Last year 36%. With this team, he’ll get open looks.

You all forgetting he will be a bench warmer, he isn't going to be starter - doubt he'll get a tone of minutes with the lineup we're getting - so you all need to chill

good signing;)

A little small for his position but he's a great one on one defender. When Matthews was guarding LeBron, Matthews did an amazing job guarding LBJ. I have a feeling he'll do what Danny was suppose to do better.

Great signing by Rob Pelinka. Dude is killing it.

Is he better than Green?
Arguably the greatest franchise ever
