7.9: Matt Steinmetz and Garry Saint Jean Assess David Lee
I would tackle everything MBA free agency probably of the full court press -- -- Mets this season -- dot com NBA insider. And former Warriors GM and coach Gary saint Jean along for the ride Matt let's talk about David Lee come into the -- A good fit for the Golden State Warriors I think it's a good fit David -- a rebounder that's what the Warriors don't do well that's where he's gonna help them. Thirteen million dollars a year it's it's a lot of money may be a little too high but not out of the ordinary I think you will help the Warriors definitely. Six is used price tag for a guy David Lee but he does averaged forty points and almost twelve rebounds a game most of them coming on the defensive end. For the New York Knicks and that's got to be -- help and it's gotta be something that the Golden State Warriors. Can use going sports. Young man was in perfect position free agents -- he was just below the top four -- five guys. This guy is a proven power forward. And I think he's coming to Warriors system which is very similar to the -- system he'll fit right in with -- Ellis and curry. I like his skills as Matt noted his rebounding plays a great pick and roll game. Had also -- pick and pop game he knows how to play he's a savvy player he'll fit into this style of basketball that the lawyers are playing. I think it's a great moles very skilled indeed now the only reason -- can come over to the Golden State wars and a sign and trade is because LeBron James decided. Not to go to New York City instead headed down South Beach leaving thirty million dollars on the table in Cleveland Matt Dowd that's a large -- Saints -- go down. But he's going to be plain -- Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as well. I think he'll be all right you think I think he'll be all right I just think that at the end of the day. He looked at the Cleveland Cavaliers looked at the opportunity had Miami and thought. My chance at a championship is down in Miami I just don't think at the end of the day he had confidence that Cleveland could put the pieces around them. Do you think ever really changes the landscape. Of the NBA saying when you think about Orlando's still has Dwight Howard the Boston Celtics are still together and of course the Lakers are still major power in the Western Conference. He got great experience in winning ways in Boston. You've got the best senator. In the basketball world and in Howard and Orlando. You know they've got to get some more pieces in Miami. Let's let's put this way they're now really. In the top of the horse race it's going to be a great run in the east. And frankly I'm glad to see Stoudemire Boozer go that way it's better for the Warriors. You know Lee wood and solid offensive presence in the same giving this potential starting line up some inside and outside -- -- -- -- -- -- very much they've taken of the backcourt. Lead Biedrins in the paint Reggie Williams as your possible starting small. Forward.
