Is Udrih really worth picking up??

I feel like I need to add SOMEBODY with all the time I wasted today.

The only move I made this week was dropping Delfino (before news of the trade)...so right now I'm the big loser of the trade deadline, haha. Take a risk on Udrih?

You could wait Nelson MRI but there's a chance Udrih will be gone by then

Yahoo is saying that he's the primary backup behind Nelson now...

that's incorrect, right? I assumed Moore would still be the backup, and would start if Nelson misses time.

Moore is not exactly a PG, more a combo-guard.

I don't think it's a coincidence they got Udrih just a couple of hours after they find out Nelson has a strained patella
Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, not 7......

Udrih is the better PG. When, not if, Nelson misses more time, I think Beno will be the starter.

Udrih is a severely underrated playmaker, and when it comes to that aspect of PGs alone, I'd actually say he's better than Jameer. Either way, Jameer looks like he's going to be missing some games, so definitely pick up Udrih if you need assists.

what are the chances Udrih plays a bit of SG and take up something like Redick's role?

None. Orlando is a team full of young prospects and they need a veteran like Udrih quarterbacking their agenda. There's absolutely no reason for the Magic to take away Udrih's biggest strength in playmaking and shift him into a sharpshooting SG when they have a ton of other younger offensive options.

Well, JJ Redick assumed that role because his main strength was still perimeter shooting, so even though he handled some playmaking duties while on the floor with Nelson, he was mainly looking to get a shot off. I don't see Udrih filling that role.

It's just my opinion, but considering their skillsets, I wouldn't really understand Udrih at SG.

Don't get caught up in the SG position in terms of shooting.  The Heat only have a few guards as it is, so Udrih will get minutes at both guard spots.  Someone has to assume Redick's minutes, and it will be Udrih.  He will get plenty of run as Nelson's backup, but he will also play minutes alongside Nelson or Moore or Afflalo.

watching the Magic game on TV, and they are INFINITELY better with Udrih on the court.

I actually like E'Twaun Moore, and think he's a good young prospect...but he's just NOT a PG...flat out. He's a 2 trying to play the 1.

The +/- for this game is insane, if you look at when Udrih is running the point vs. Moore.

All that being said...I agree with most of the posters here, as good as Udrih might run the team...I don't see them giving him the reigns when he's on the final year of his contract over a young rookie that they think highly of (this all depending on Nelson being out, of course).

If anything Etwaun Moore could take Redick's role....

Tonight should effectively put an end to any talk that he should be utilized in any role outside of a playmaker.
