Is it a good idea?
It depends. If Finley has anything left to offer, absolutely. He’s a solid player, a good shooter, and a pro’s pro.
But all signs point toward Finley having nothing left. He hasn’t scored a single point since Feb. 6th, a time that spans over four games played, four DNP-CD’s, and 53 minutes played. He’s averaged a whopping 3.7 points per game this season, which equates to only 8.5 points per 36 minutes.
Chances are, he’s only a fossil at this point. But with Tony Allen and Marquis Daniels being the C’s only two backup wing players, they could use any wing guy with a legit jumper. Finley, if he’s not quite a dinosaur yet, could be that.
