Now that Portland has bought out Steve Francis’ contract, the question remains: where will he play? And a better question: should the Mavs pursue him? The Pig Pen seems to think he’s worth another look, although they point out the obvious problem in that Francis is a near carbon copy of Jason Terry. Do we really need another Jason Terry?

The obvious answer, in case you couldn’t decide, is definitely NO. The Mavs don’t need his skill set. They don’t need his attitude. He brings nothing to the table that the Mavs don’t already have. Think power forward. Think offensive rebounds. Enough of this perimeter-only offense. Find a balance.
