Is Jason Kapono an option?

Chuck - Red's Army July 20, 2010 Uncategorized 17 Comments on Is Jason Kapono an option?

Via ESPN's Marc Stein:

• I’ve been advised that Philadelphia, with its surplus of swingmen, is
open to moving sharpshooter Jason Kapono, who has one season left on his
contract at $6.6 million. Kapono is a natural target for teams in the
hunt for a perimeter specialist with Mike Miller and Kyle Korver getting
snapped up early in free agency.

Rasheed's contract for Jason Kapono?

He averaged 5.7 points (42% FG, 37% 3FG) in 57 games for the Sixers last season.

Yes, I realize we've been holding out hope for someone better, but I think it's time to lower our expectations.

    Whoa…that’d be sweet. I’d rather have him than Barnes.

  • He’s got a sniper rep.. any idea one way or other about his D?

  • he can shoot great on nba live 2010


    Kobe is now America’s Top Star BITCHES

    i think he would be ok to get as long as we also get a minimum guy like mcgrady or mcCants or hughes also. Our bench looks like this
    Big Baby-pf
    Semih Erden-C

    My expectations are pretty low already.
    Not a fan of 1 dimensional guys like Kapono, but yeah he can shoot. House could be gotten cheaper, he’s still out there. Hard to believe Sheed’s deal can only net Kapono.
    Sheed needs to realize he can make another 6 mil by playing ball for afew months. Thats the best option left. He’ll be pissed in afew years if he leaves that on the table.

    denver recently signed al harrington. and i remember last year there was a ton of chemistry issues with jr smith and the team contemplated trading. sheeds expiring contract should get it done.. smith in green would be sick

  • Lakerhater

    I agree, I think the best option on the table is getting sheed to play one more year. God I can’t believe I just said that.
    I’d take Eddie over kapono too.

    dude 4 real???, Kapono over Barnes???!!! R u fuckin serious? that is a statement that requires an instant fucking catscan to make sure your brain is working. The dude can’t do nothing but shoot wide open shots, can’t play d can’t dribble can’t rebound he’s a fucking corpse out there! Matt Barnes is 100% hustle and energy and thats what it is all about! Everyone gets all giddy over the Josh Howards and T-Macs and big names and white guys who shoot good in NBA live, we need warriors on the bench who go after every loose ball, can stretch the floor, can play good D, go hard all year long, sound familiar? That would be my man Matt Barnes.

  • nick

    Ime Udoka would be a real solid pickup, I’ve respected that guys game for years. All he does is grind and play d and always put the team first, he’s almost as good a fit as Matty B..Um no actually he’s not MY bad..Matt Barnes is a man walking amongst mere mortals i just pray to god he steers clear of LALA Land, Udoka is grimy and a hard worker though, would like 2 see him in green

    Matt Barnes fucking sucks, he’s the worst player in the league. He is terrible. Watching him play basketball makes me want to puke. Watching him play basketball made me give up the sport and consider suicide. If the Celtics sign Matt barnes, they will instantly be the worst team in the NBA because of his mere presence on their bench.

  • KY Celts fan

    good lord, you’re worse than To The Ruins. Get off Matt Barnes’ jock. He’s a journeyman. There’s a reason he can’t stay on a team for more than a season.

  • JD

    “a man walking amongst mere mortals”

  • Lee in Oregon

    Jesus, Nick, stop it. Matt Barnes is as mortal as anyone in the NBA. Is he your dad? Otherwise, get real. The guy is a decent journeyman who plays for minimum contracts on a different team every year. Other than you, no one, including ALL THE GM’s IN THE NBA, think’s he’s more than that. Props to you on being passionate about the C’s but for God’s sake, stop drooling all over the guy, you’re embarrasing yourself…..he’s not even a starter on a good team.
    ps…happy birthday!!!
