Besides AI, what other veterans don't want to be here?

That's a pretty big other don't you think?

Not if Iggy is the only one.

I believe Andre is the only "other" vet not wanting to be here. That means adding Delon by matching the Dallas offer would mean the team had two which is two too many in my humble opinion.

I gotta be honest, jevon Carter is kind of outplaying tyus Jones so far this year. It's going to suck if he actually ends up being pretty good. I liked him.

I really hope Melton prove to be something because if he doesn't it will be difficult to chose Jones + Melton against Delon + Carter, of course we have Josh Jackson in that equation too

Yeah I could kinda see his upside if he started making jumpers like he is now. His shot really looks good now.

He's even starting to finish some shots inside which I thought would easily be his biggest weakness since he isn't a great athlete. Oh well though, we still got two seconds for him and Josh Jackson/ Melton. One of those assets should be as good as him.

Jevon is cool and i am happy for him.  But he isn't a PG.  He can't run an offense and isn't much of a passer.   He is PatBev with better offensive ceiling. 

I think once we get a chance to see Melton and/or Josh we will quickly forget about Jevon.

Tyus had one bad game in which he missed every open shot he took in a game that we still managed to win. He also still managed to contribute with 5 assists off the bench. He plays within himself. He's going to be fine. More than fine. He's going to be the best backup we've ever had and I predict by a lot.

I had to search for this old thread, but Tyus has been playing really good lately.  His outside shot, especially the 3 is looking really good.  In fact our whole bench has been looking good.

He's been perfect for most of December. If he can keep this up, he's a solid core bench piece. Especially with a relatively cheap contract

For a stretch he was a little disappointing, but he seems to have stepped it up lately.  Still has a very good assist-to-turnover ratio.  I like the improvement in his shooting, but defense is where I really wanted to see improvement, and he seems to be a little better there as well.

Tyus has been killing it for a while now and not getting the acknowledgement he deserves.   I think its becoming clear that he is the best backup PG we have had in at least a decade.     Great pickup by the FO.    He is the engine that makes our very impactful bench go.   

Shout Out to Tyus!

+27 in 18 minutes last night scoring 16 while only missing one shot.  Led the team in assists too with no turnovers.  I agree that he doesn't get nearly the fan love and recognition that he deserves.

He fits great as backup to Ja because he is such a low Turnover player.    Perfect compliment to Ja's more volatile play style.   The fact that he is transforming himself into a legit 3pt shooter and overall offensive threat has made the game much easier for him.    Hopefully Ja learns that from him and works on his outside shot this summer.

I still really liked what Delon gave us, but Tyus is turning out to be really solid. He's finally hitting that 3 ball pretty consistently which is a big boost. Great passer as well. Very good signing.

Yep he has been great for a while now.

I am getting comfortable with him being labelled the best back PG we ever had

IMO Tyus is better than Delon.

He has certainly fit better into the scheme, and makes the scheme a better fit for others than Delon
