    If we do indeed bring Oden aboard it will be interesting to see what we do. I don't think oden and tristan provide enough spacing, but I think speights fits well next to any big we have on this roster offensively. You wonder what we do with our draft pick if we bring back andy, tristan and speights. We would have a team option on both andy and oden (if he goes with the reported deal). If we renounced both players and signed that LeBron guy, we wouldn't have much, if any, room to bring back even one of those guys.

    It's hard to complain about 3-for-13 shooting when the guy's 12-for-12 at the line.

    Nothing like 4 for 23 shooting in the past two games to drop a player's numbers back down to par.

    Looking at Marreese's shot chart, it seems he'll shoot up a J from just about anywhere on the court. You'd think he'd focus on some sweet spots.

    Speights was pissed and whining about something in the fourth quarter. I think he got pissed at CJ chucking up terrible shots and then even mre pissed when he got benched. Now he tweets about it. Smh. Living up to his m.o. already.

    I'm sure I've said this several times, but Speights demeanor reminds me of Mike Tyson.

    I really think the Cavs should trade Speights before the deadline and see what we can get for him. We can always target him in free agency if it creates a big blow to the team or something.

    Marresse has had some pretty ugly games for a big since his exciting start: 6-15, 3-13, 1-10, and now 4-12.

    He's a good finisher, and his spot-up shooting has been solid and his rebounding has been good; but his hook shot looks more like a prayer. Maybe he can work on it?

    His minutes seem to be decreasing as well ...

    Speights better get consistent or there won't be a big contract for him.

    couldn't the Cavs do the same with Speights? they have a lot of cap space this summer (Walton and Boobie come off the books), the question is is this still allowed under the new CBA? in my opinion this would be a creative way to keep Speights, reach the salary floor in 2013 and preserve cap space for 2014 or am i missing something?
    Or, so the same (lesser degree) with Oden ?

    I think that's all dependent on the offers we get for him. If we could somehow get a 2014 lottery pick (pipe dream) for him, we'd trade Speights in a minute.

    15 for 51 from the field the last 5 games.

    Trade rumor jitters or not, he's chucking up wild shots that must make Miles feel a deep kinship.
