I know Tristan is 29 and in the second half of his career, but given that the Zards are trying to win with two other guys in the second half of their careers (Wall & Beal), TT might be someone they'd take a serious look at it...for the right price.
Of course, that also would depend on whether or not we draft a young big--like Okungwu or Achiuwa.
Thats the key. For 15-20 MPG, Noel, Favors, and WCS are much better players and Noel/WCS will probably be cheaper. TT is far down on my list and wouldnt be interested above 2-3M given the NBA landscape in both style and finances.
Right, Thompson's used to getting 16, 17, 18 mil a year. Even ignoring age, he'll likely cost a lot more and not be as good as Noel.
