Seems like the roster will end up...
As far as OJ goes, you can go back and forth as to whether OJ is an upgrade over JET, but you know what, when we got Jason Terry, he was had very similar shooting #s as Mayo, but that shot up huge once he came to Dallas. Never shot above 44% FG before coming to Dallas. We'll give OJ Mayo an opportunity. If it doesn't work? Then it doesn't work, we only signed him to a two-year deal. But for four million dollars to fill a gaping hole? I fricking love it. OJ Mayo was the main guy I wanted after we lost Deron Williams, and that was only cemented after we got Darren, Kaman, and Brand. I didn't think there was a chance of it happening, and I'll embrace every second he's on the floor for us. Extremely talented, just got to see if it pans out.
After seeing DoJo in the Summer League for two years now, I'm ready for Dominique Jones to take all of Rodrigue Beaubois' minutes. DoJo is just as good defensively, and he's not as streaky as Roddy is. Roddy was great his rookie year, and it seemed like he was going to pan out, but I'm more convinced that DoJo will be the better NBA player. Neither will probably be ever more than what JJ Barea turned out to be, but that's okay. DoJo's knack for getting to the rim and drawing contact is enough for me to be convinced that he's going to be a better scorer. And he's also light-years ahead of Roddy in terms of ball-handling and creating for others. He has excellent vision for a combo-guard, which he definitely is. Roddy is a SG that tries to do things a PG does. DoJo is a SG that actually knows how to play PG. Reminiscent of Delonte West without a jumpshot.
I'd like to see West come back, but I'm not sure there are minutes available for him. I know there's mutual interest, so maybe we'll use our over-the-cap exception on him.
I really like what we turned out team into.
A) We are better, without a doubt.
B) We remain flexible.
C) If all else fails, it was a huge shake-up that we'll be able to get some excitement in new faces from.
