    I wasn't high on Ray, but Beno is pretty bad. Not very athletic, and not much of a defender. This is like bringing back Steve Blake. Actually, Blake may be the better player on offense.

    I can vouch for Beno. Picked him up in adv fantasy and he hit a 3-pointer. Might have also had him on a scrub team back when we did those leagues.

    Blake >>> Udrih

    Would prefer they had kept McCallum

    Steve Blake this week signed with the Sydney Kings. Maybe I should add that to the Ex-Pistons thread.

    With Reggie out 15-20 games, SVG needed a backup PG with more NBA experience (792 games vs. 154).

    I can understand the reasoning but still not a move to my liking

    I thought this guy played for a pretty good team sometime the last few years and was decent at that time.

    The Pistons needed a more experienced guy, but this is a classic Van Softy defense for offense switch.

    So, when thinking about a player who needs to fill in about 10-12 mpg for a month and a half and not play for the rest of the season, SVG chose to go with someone who knows his own limits. Udrih sux for sure, but he'll make fewer mistakes than the youngsters who are going to be more apt to take risks. I'm tired.

    It might be a lot to expect Ish Smith to play 36 MPG while Jackson is out.

    Putting on the ol' tin foil hat for a moment, does this somehow imply that Jackson will be out for longer?

    Honestly, I'm still not sure of the pronunciation of his first name. "Ben-no" or "Bean-o"...? :noidea:
