    I hope so. Maybe a one or two year contract from a team hoping he regains form and willing to take the risk.

    However if the Feilds we see now is the one he's going to be for the rest of his career then you could probably find someone in the D-League that can do the same but provide more offense. Alan Anderson comes to mind as someone from D-League which gives you more than Feilds does right now.

      Fields has done nothing in the last three offseasons to improve his performance/increase his trade value. He's the american Bargnani.

        Did you miss the part of the thread where it talked about nerve damage, two operations, and recovery time?

        What do you think Fields should have done to improve his performance...not had the injury? WTF.

          You claimed that he is a dime a dozen but didn't name a single player with the same skill set as him.
          I would like to submit some names off the top of my head; all under the high IQ, solid D, good teammates skill set.

          Dante Cunningham - guards the 3/4 (bit of a tweeter but a solid defender at both).

          Lou Amundson - plays the 4 more, but same skill set.

          Matt Barnes - little more offence and money, but similar mold albeit aggressor

          Toney Douglas - guard

          Alan Anderson - less D, more O

          Andrei Kirilenko

          PJ Tucker - late bloomer but the Suns had him cheap until this offseason (plus he's a former Raptor draft pick)

          James Johnson - less IQ but more athleticism than most

          Gerald Henderson - more shooting than most on here

          Jeff Taylor

          I'd even throw Quincy Acy on the list.

            I know about the nerve damage. I also know that Patrick Patterson had a similar elbow injury last season. I know that instead of rehabbing & altering his shot to compensate for his injury, he's dressing up like MC Hammer/Lionel Richie/Nicki Minaj and doing covers of pop songs on TV. Check him out @ his twitter, vine & Instagram accounts. I don't think it's unfair to suggest that he's not working hard enough to overcome his condition. He seems quite content to cash his checks, ride the pine & coast through life.

              The guy also got married this month - maybe shoulda been shooting free throws instead? And per your suggestion, I checked his Instagram. Found he had a baby last August and still got out to play some summer league at Rucker Park and has another pick-up shot, all from the same month.

              These guys train. Assuming how much or how often, especially for scrubs, is pure speculation. Arguments from silence are never a good idea.

                    I've seen a few criticisms this offseason about "Why isn't player X working out???" Just because we hear somebody's doing Drew League, a couple guys are training together, or somebody's working out for a week with a HoF'er - it doesn't mean all the rest of the guys are sitting at home eating bags of Cheetohs. Sheesh. Especially the scrubs. Who do you think is lining up to write Landry Fields offseason training update columns? Nobody.
                    Exactly. His offseason training updates were written by a nobody.

                      This is Field's contract year. If he plays like he did last season or worse than I don't think it will be easy for him to find another contract and that could be why he's participating in that TV show so that he has options outside of basketball. If he improves and played closer to his rookie year than I could definitely see him getting another contract.

                      It also depends on what he'd be willing to play for. If he is okay with a short term minimum style contract than teams will take a flyer on him as a 15th spot on their roster. Lots of teams prefer veterans over rookies.. I could see him going back to NY for example.

                        Hopefully Chuck Hayes is somewhere working on his running double clutch 3pt shot.
                        Myself (March 2014):
                        The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

                          He's worth about 1-year 400,000/year deal.

                                How much of a contract does a player get? For example Lowry at $12M per, how many goes to taxes, and all that?
