    1. Does anyone know if there’s any void type language in JR’s deal? I’m thinkin that having a SG rotation of Shump-TH2-Murry is good for the growth of the team. Plus Udrih an Prigioni can play some 2 as well. At this point JR is too unreliable. An enigma and a talent for sure, but as competitive as the top of the East is gonna be, we need to really minimize distractions. Maybe we can trade him to a team who needs some scoring in the backcourt for a backup 5. It’s risky to count on young guys when the team is in win now mode, but I think Shump and TH2 can hold down that SG spot.

    2. Don’t know for sure, but I would be shocked if there was a void policy related to something this minor.
