It's interesting how so many are for signing NVE when they forget about the last year of Doc Rivers contract w/the Spurs who had bad wheels and seemed like a liability. Although, getting Charles Smith (PF) is another good example of having a player that's damaged goods, the PG position, imo, needs mobility moreso since they are in the open court and defending the other teams' PG. Yes, if NVE is fully healthy and capable then I am all for signing him up. Being realistic though, arthritic knees just don't dissappear. Not only that, there is a reason why NVE hasn't been signed by any other team....think this might be just one of the reasons?
As Amente stated in the past, NVE of 2005 needs to be compared to Wilkes of 2005 to see who would best be able to help the Spurs "on the court" and not "on the bench (IR)."
