      Updating to 4.1   10/27/2015

      Woohoo the update for 4.1 is out, which means lots of bug fixes and making things work better than they have on the new 4.0.x system. The upgrade to the look and feel may take a couple of hours but this default theme will be available during that time. Once the Hawksquawk theme(s) have been manually converted over I will get everyone switched back. Thanks for your patience everyone.

Ok. Not opposed to this at all. We need someone else to play the 3 spot.

I would love to gain a wing player. He'd be a nice addition.

Really is more of a 2 but given his absolute lack of handles he got relegated to the 3 where he gives up at least 25 pounds every night despite his 6'8" frame. Beyond that he's yet another streak shooter and I think we have the market cornered on that.

Marc Stein reported that Corey Brewer will be bought out by the Knicks. He'd be another great option at the 3. Especially given his relationship with Al. I should also add Brewer is a terrific rebounder.

He improved his shot as well. Corey Brewer would be perfect for us.

Corey Brewer is sudden;y, of course, the best option out there. But everyone knows that. It appears that the race for him is strong and elite (Bos, SA, OKC, Dal). I wouldn't count on it.

But maybe, if we are looking at Butler, we might end up with one of these guys that can help us at the 3. Mo Pete, etc.

Brewer would be sweet, and another good defensive player to add to the mix. However our problem seems to be $$$$, and the unwillingness by the ASG to go over the luxury tax line, which I can't really fault them for not wanting to do that for players who are basically fungible. If you're getting a star, then yeah. Take the tax hit and don't worry about it. Anyone less than that though and it's probably not such a great idea, because they're likely to be not worth it.

So if Brewer (or anyone else really) were to be bought out, does anyone know how much money we'd be on the hook for if we were to sign him/them, and would that put us into luxury tax territory? Can we use our MLE, or what exactly is the deal with that? I've never understood that. :question:
