5051RE: [APBR_analysis] Kutluay
- Sep 20 5:18 PMOn the Sonics email list, we can't make sense of it either. One
thing about the 3-point shooting: the Sonics did lose Barry
and Frahm, their two best 3-point shooters.
Frahm didn't play much anyway, but we're not expecting Kutluay
to do much either. In that sense he can be viewed as a direct
replacement for Frahm. Except of course that Kutluay is older
and was given a 2-year contract. The Sonics are at least two
years away from being highly competitive, so they need new young
players with high upside potential, or else dirt cheap players
who don't take away salary cap flexibility. At age 30 and a
reported $3.4M two-year contract, Kutluay is neither. But he
doesn't break the bank.

Since there's a lot of Seattle-area folks on this board, anyone want
to enlighten me on what the Sonics were thinking by signing this guy?
His European stats are beyond unimpressive, he can't play defense and
his one alleged skill (3-pointers) is the one thing the Sonics have
in spades. I'm speechless.
