I've seen scant proof that a majestic aura trumps a sound plan, but maybe that's just because I wasn't looking at Phil Jackson... Seth Rosenthal 2014

Does that mean that Melo trade is imminent?

He is basically a Melo Lite type: volume scorer; doesn't do much else. Makes you wonder about Melo's status?

Didn't Begley say he thought Melo was going to go training camp with the Knicks on Hahn's show last week?

I like him, but why does this have to be about melo, he's a guy that can cover if KOQ or lance continue to play with great inconsistency

I can't believe that people still think a Houston trade is still in the works

We needed scoring off the bench and Beasley gives us just that. I do like the signing.

He and Melo are the same type of player playing the same position (volume scorers who play no defense or team ball)

He is a less talented Melo clone as far as game goes. That's the comparison. Huge underachiever in his NBA career. Don't dislike the signing on a 1 yr deal b/c we will need some scoring (especially if Melo is moved).

Awesome move --I wrote about this last year. His defense was so much better last year and he was playing awesome before he got hurt. New SF

Did I say that? Simply said they play the same position and do the same thing (similar skill set). Although Beasley is less talented. Draw your inferences from that.

I know, right?
So basically Baker is twice the player as Beas cuz he is paid double. Right?

Had Anthony Randolph-14, and Courtney Lee-22 from that draft, too?

EnySpree: Can we agree to agree not to mention Phil Jackson and triangle for the rest of our lives?

if our plan is Beasley + Andersen then we are definitely trying to tank

that said, I don't read any more into this than our recent history... Derrick Williams, Brandon Jennings, Michael Beasley--these guys kind of fit a pattern

this is strange though I don't mind. he could end up like derrick Williams who turned out to be a decent bench player for us. melo has to be moved because it would be a glut with him and lance Thomas.
