The Mavs continue to tell me that they don’t need backup point-guard help. I keep arguing that they’re wrong, pointing to how inefficient Dallas is when Jason Kidd isn’t on the floor. There are now reports (guesses?) that have Dallas engaging in conversation with former Pistons guard Lindsey Hunter, who is a free agent. But if you are a betting man, take my advice and assume that Hunter won’t be playing for Dallas on Thursday – but that instead he’ll be playing against them.
That’s right. I’m told the Bulls – presently playing without the injured Heinrich and Hughes and desperately thin at guard as they prepare to host the Mavs tomorrow – are confident they will sign Hunter today.
Maybe the use of 'Heinrich' is enough for a DQ?
Hunter can't really play anymore, but he does defend. Most assumed he'd play in Detroit or bust. I dunno, I suppose whatever 'vet leadership' and defense is better than rolling the dice with Darius Washington, considering the youth of the starting PG.
