This one is a bit more of a long-shot than some of the other proposed FAs, but I thought I would toss it out there and see what you all think.
We all know that the Mavs need to see improvement from the 2-spot. Caron Butler is a small forward masquerading as a shooting guard, Terry has looked increasingly ugly of late, and Deshawn Stevenson's defensive prowess is counterbalanced by his total lack of offense.
So why not Anthony Morrow? The man is a sharpshooter from behind the arc (an amazing 46% on threes for his career) and he'll turn 25 a few days before the season starts. His defense may be a concern, but I doubt it could be worse than JET right now.
Two important things about this potential signing:
1. I would probably want to see the Mavs move one of their 2-guards before doing this. Obviously Caron should be the starter at 3 this year (with Marion coming off the bench), but that still leaves 3 SGs (including Dominique Johnson, who I would like to see get playing time) or even 4 if you count Roddy B. If we get rid of Barea (giving Roddy all the backup PG minutes) and one of these SGs, we're in shape to sign Morrow.
2. Morrow is a restricted free agent, so we will have to make an offer that Golden State won't match. This could be the trickiest part.
So what do you guys think, do we spend an MLE on this guy, or look elsewhere for other options?
