    So I was just about to post about how we could get rid of Roger and pick him up when I went to draft express and saw that they had his BEST case scenario for him as Earl Watson.

    wow, maybe not. i'd still give him a shot, but - wow.
    Better passer than Watson, worse defender. Slightly better shooter.

    You're saying that Machado is slightly better shooter than the 16% from 3 point land Watson?

    i liked machado. but he's spent almost the entire year either on the inactive list or in the D-league, so it's hard to gauge if he's really NBA-ready.

    Brilliant detective work. It's a good thing that site exists.

    Let's all talk **** about Watson... as though the player he is today is the player he's always been... fun times.

    Anybody who wouldn't pick up a young Watson off the waiver wire should have his head examined.

    Not saying that's who Machado is, but, yeah....

    Watson has had a pretty nice career, everybody. Simmer down.

    Alright you got me. Watson did used to be a pretty good player and if Machado turns out to be the younger Watson, more power to him.

    the problem with machado is that he costs 2+ million... the prorated min salary he himself will earn, plus the 1.8M remaining on bell's deal that we'd have to eat to sign someone off the waiver wire.

    at some point, the jazz are going to have to relent on the principle that they don't want to reward bell's tantrums by paying him to play elsewhere. i get why they feel that way, but at a certain point you're cutting off your nose to spite your face.
