The Blazers need to sign free agent SF Jumaine Jones. Jones is a hustler in the Ruben Patterson mold, except for the fact that he's relentless on the boards, can hit the three and is a great character guy. If you're going to be competitive, you need rebounding out of your SF in certain situations, and Outlaw and Webster aren't exactly rebounders. For those of you who are concerned that Jones' game migth overlap with Z-Bo's (much like Patterson's did lats year), he actually is not that much of an interior player and tends to play outside as opposed to clogging up the middle. We're kind of thin at the 3 right now, and I'm all for bringing in a hustle player like Jones to push Webster and Outlaw. Also, Jones can be had cheap, since 2.5 million should be enough to get him. If things break right, he could be this year's edition of J Pryz/Steve Blake.
Hustle, tremendous defense and solid rebounding on the cheap?
I'm all for it.
