    Interesting to hear the Clips beat writer impressions of him. Basically, he calls him a 2 years project that is super-raw.

    CJ is a great tank commander. He needs more minutes.

    That rotation has a lot of Hart!

    More seriously, You're dumping CJ, which I don't think they will. But yes, they should.

    Tell me when you think Elleby will be out of the starting lineup. Give a date.
    I predict Elleby will be a starter for the rest of the season, unless Dame returns.
    You give your date, then we'll see who is closer.

    I hope Keon gets a crack here shortly; though from what I've seen of him, I don't have high expectations he'll ever be a meaningful player in the league.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    The X factor for a young guy like Keon's chances IMO is Billups and his staff. Billups seems to me a great coach for young moldable guys, especially guards/wings. They seem to really listen to him (buy in) and he seems to not only have the knowledge but has the "gift" to impart that knowledge in a very effective way - IMO a fairly rare and very valuable attribute. I love what he's done with Ant and Nas, and even Elleby going from nothing to at least playable.

    Well, at least we can see that his form is decent. Sometimes there is just no hope for a player to get much better.

    I assume Hart, Hughes, and Keon are basically going to be interchangeable at the 2/3.

    I'm wondering if we're going to drop one of Hughes or Elleby to sign Eubanks for next season on a cheap deal.
