Hamilton- the missing piece

Rip Hamilton has to be the missing piece for so many wanna be contenders.

Get him to the Jazz to run motion offence with D-Will in the backcourt....

Same goes for a spot at Chi town next to Rose, who's play has me rethinking my earlier 'over-rated' call...

Either way, he is far too good a talent to be playing out his days in Detroit.

He would work well as a knick too...

Detroit is full of coulda been players! amazing how they all end up in the same spot. Charlie V had 50 as a rookie, Gordon was a super sub putting up mass numbers and Tmac....well injury got him i guess. Wallace only one who plays consistantly. If only he could avg 20 and 10 a night theyd be fine. Rip is a unique style of player, agreed could fit in to any contenders roster. Does his contract allow for him to be traded with ease though??

Can always tell when Quagmire has a day off!

Beasely is flying under the radar with a 21 and 6 per game season so far. His team record isn't so good but perhaps getting a good pick next year might see them do alright.

Been waiting for you to re think that D.Rose call Quag..
Top 5 in the MVP right now, surely.

Also agreed re Hamilton. Works very hard without the ball in his hands, would be perfect in Chi Town.

Even Orlando, if they buy out marshmellow Carter's contract.

Rip stays - my Pistons need all the help they can get.

Beasley was an awesome fantasy pick-up by me, but he is always gonna be a high scorer on a poor team.

Rip to the Hornets would be great too....

I'd welcome RIP on the Knicks, however I don't see it happening.

Beasley and Love are doing awesome with that crappy T-Wolves team.

Rip took that contract extension at a bad time and then they went out and screwed him by signing Ben Gordon.

$12.5 mill per through 2012-13 when he will be turning 35 basically makes him untradeable for this season and next.

Disappointing way to fade away for a guy who has had a very good career.

Hamilton won't go to the Knicks while Landry Fields is there...
