Yes he was - and he'd be a bad fit with the majority of teams - because he's a flip-flopper. He's a 2-guard on offense, but he's too small to guard the opponent's 2-guard on defense. He works with Detroit (on paper at least) because Hamilton is that rare bird who can: 1) play point guard on offense, 2) not demand too many shots, and 3) had solid enough defense to guard the opponent's 2-guard. Neither JR Smith nor Anthony Carter could fill that bill.
Obviously the trade is GREAT for us even without McDyess ... we're like 7-1 with Chauncey now. Is the only loss that close on in Cleveland?
