Andre Miller or Jason Kidd or Steve Blake?

Honestly I am not very excited by our options. By the way Miller and Kidd are the only All-Star PGs available this summer as free agents. Both are

- old

-above average rebounders

-more comfortable passing and setting up their teammates first

-neither player can shot better from distance than Blake

-not as good defensively as they were when they were younger

-better than Blake but require the offense to play to their strengths

 

So what do we do? Do we stick with Blake? Remember that this is the last Summer that we are going to be able to spend big on a free agent. It seems to me that the only way to get a better PG is to trade for one NOW! Ideally the player I believe is best suited to our needs is Billups. There is no way we could have him now so its best to forget about him and look elsewhere. So what are we looking for in a PG?Someone who

-can accept being a provider first 

-can accept being at best a 3rd option, maybe even a 4th (excludes Paul, DW)

-can defend the quick PG like Parker, Ellis etc

-can spread the floor be shotting well from 3pt land

-has the ability to lead our young group of guys

Can anyone name 3 PGs that match our requirements? All I got is Billups, Calderon and Harris. Neither will be available without sacrificing our big 3.

So if Bayless doesn't improve 'alot' for next season we are going to have to stick with Blake.
