Personally, I'm not a fan of paying big $$$ for one of the scant free agent point guards out there, nor am I a big fan of trading for that french spur, Tony Parker. I don't know why, I just amn't.
I still have a lot of faith in Toney Douglas. I just like what he do at the end of games. Personally, I think he's the perfect point guard for a team with LeBron, and I think he'd be just fine without LeBron too. I'm not convinced he can become the pick and roll master this system demands, but I wouldn't put it past him. And defense, man, defense is an unheralded quality in a point guard. Call me crazy, but doesn't Toney's D take 5 points away from the other team every night? It's a good thing to have your floor leader getting after it on that side of the floor.
Also, am I the only one that thinks Rautins may be of some use at the point guard position? To me, it seems the kid understands basketball, shows leadership, and can pass. My concern is whether he's a good enough ball handler to get the ball upcourt against pressure, but if he can do that, I bet this guy ends up excelling in the pick and roll. And he seems to care about defense too.
Sure, I'm getting ahead of myself and being over-optimistic here, and I wouldn't mind signing a guy like Ridinour if we can get him for a decently low number of millions. But trying to bring Felton over here? To me it just screams bad idea, and I don't know why - it just rubs me the wrong way.
I'm down with Chris Paul and keeping an eye on that situation. Especially important, given that, not to spend too much money on a point guard solution right now.
