    LOL true. But I really thought he wasn't going to come here because of playing time. I didn't think Delon's minutes would be enough for him
    Minutes? He's nothing more than a backup... he'll take what he can get to play with us. He seemed to be the best option out there as far as buyout guys, but I wouldn't hold your breath expecting the 14 game Linsanity streak. Lest we forget Il Mago had a similar run for us back then as well

    Our bench needed confidence and shooting. Love Delon but Lin should be a clear upgrade.

    It’s a block party in TO.. bringing in guys who have been around, still have something in the tank and are hungry for a chip.

    Lez go!!!

    (Would like to see one more solid big man addition and we’re set.)

    The hype train is picking up wild speed, this is the type of stuff the warriors and cavs of the world experience every year.

    So just compared Delon and Lin's stats this year. Delon averaged 18.4 mpg. Lin 19.7.

    So Lin wasn't really playing a lot in Atlanta and should be fine with 18-19 minutes here in Toronto.

    We lost some defense though. Delon is a much better (and craftier) defender. Might have to play McCaw at the same time as Lin so he doesn't get torched on defense.

    We badly needed playmaking and shooting. Gasol and Lin are excellent upgrades in those areaa.

    No one is expecting Linsanity lol. That was YEARS ago. But he is a clear upgrade over Delon at this point in their careers and he's probably one of the best back up point guards/shooting guards out right now. That's all we need from him. Shooting and playmaking and that's what he's good at. And now I don't worry about Fred as much. Him having to run the bench alone was stressing me lol. Not a lot though because I knew come playoff time they would play Kawhi, Kyle or Pascal alongside him to help

    So Masai went out and basically traded JV/Miles/Delon for Gasol and Lin.

    Not a bad trade if you look at it like that.

    Upgrade over Fred, or just different? I haven't seen enough of him over that last few years to know. I realize several members were pretty high on him and I thought he looked pretty good playing against the Raptors.
    He was great with the Hornets but havent seen him at all post injury. Probably a worthwhile pickup, though I assume hes mostly insurance rather than a difference maker.

    That I agree with. Delon is a much better defender than Lin. But we have so many good defenders I'm not too worried. McCaw being one of them as you said.

    Unlike FVV, Lin can be trusted to run an offense as the bench PG. This means Fred can go back to his pint-sized SG, secondary ball handler, overrated defender role.

    Exactly! LOL. Put the ball in Lin's hands and have Fred space the floor. That's how it should have been with Delon as well but Delon lacked enough confidence too often and wasn't consistent. Delon used to also pick up his dribble too fast at times for no reason and get himself into trouble.

    YUP! And that's an upgrade. He's better than both Fred and Delon. When Lin is on and playing well he may be better than last years Fred as well

    Some were (are?) pitching Lin over FVV, which I was quite against - but Lin for cheap to go along with FVV? Letting Lin run the bench offence (PnR especially), and getting FVV off the ball more - love it. I think that's the ideal buyout pickup.

    Not quite sure how these buyouts work... looks like he may have asked for it ... does it mean he could take a shave to play for the Raps?

    He's a free agent now so the Raps have to sign him to a new deal. They have the minimum or the tax-MLE (up to just over 4M) to offer him.
