Alonzo Gee started 38 games last season, fifth-most on New Orleans.
Injuries took a toll on a team lacking quality depth, and this influx of youngish talent should help. But there’s still a role for at least one old standby.
Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:
Gee opted out of a contract that would’ve paid him $1,379,400 next season. His minimum salary is $1,315,448. We’ll see whether his gamble paid off.
The 29-year-old Gee is a helpful defender, especially because his 6-foot-6 frame allows him to switch onto so many positions. But a shaky 3-point shot prevents him from filling a bigger role.
