I know that we will probably have to let Scuderi walk because he'll be able to command $3m or more on the open market but I'll stay optimistic here.
I like the defensive pairings you got there AgentM... there is consistency which is good. I think the Scuderi-Gogo pairing would probably be the most interesting (for an extended period of time). If you put Scuds w/ someone who has speed... he might look even better. He could feel more comfortable about pinching in the offensive zone or closing the gap early knowing Gogo could get to all the chip-ins that go behind them.

I also would like to see Lovejoy get about 30 games next year somewhere along the line because he really showed some promise up w/ the bigs. I love how he controls the corners, he's right handed, and I thought he had a great quick breakout pass. He's decisive and if he gains some speed in the offseason.. he could be a nice cheap asset to have.
