More often than not he was the one bright spot on a very weak bench. He was always the guy that you knew you could count on to not only do his job, but to go above and beyond. Hopefully he'll find a team to give him a nice payday, and if not, then maybe the C's could re-sign him on a team-friendly deal.

Rumor has it he is the one who got into a fight with Will Smith causing him to move in with Uncle Phil in Bel Air.

Uncalled for. He clearly is signing a max here once Danny frees up the money.

Did his job at a great price tag. Not 100% he's gone, but I wish him well regardless

Also, he was cash money at the free throw line

Good luck Solidmaker, you'll be greatly missed. The one true veteran we had in this team along with Kanter.

Made some shots but pretty unsteady for a vet PG. Thanks for your service. I will miss your last name.

Brad knew how to shoot a FT and seemed like someone who you didn’t really want to mess with. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

I'd hate for the Sixers to get him. It's like Horford all over again.

came here to see what kind of player we just signed and the posts read like it's a pretty decent signing

saw a number of your games last season and I think I saw a nuggety guard whos an above average shooter who is prone to the odd brain fade in transition

How am I doing here?

He is overwhelmingly solid. Gets to the basket and shoots way better than you would expect. Doesn't really pass, especially in transition. He is a dependable back up.

Somehow I don't believe that Brad signed for his highest offer. But apparently he wants to be Steph Curry's backup in San Francisco with the Warriors Team. Too bad you don't have a healthy Klay Thompson to pitch to, you'd get a lot more assists.

But, as I said, I expected you get to more than the vet minimum from someone. Something tells me that you may not have opted for your highest offer, but prefer the situation that you are heading to. A new experience as well. Good luck.
