    Well at least he made a good "wink-wink" screen. If you're asking more from him at this point..... eh I think we took a bath on that 40 mill. :mellow:

    Meyers seems like a mentally fragile game. The spot up jump shot is like the only thing in his game, and when that's not falling he shouldn't be on the court. I thought we dodged a bullet last year with him turning down that contract, and I thought after Olshey seeing him kinda suck in his 4th year he wouldn't dare offer him the same thing.

    Not sure about Olshey, he's made a lot of good moves, but this offseason could be his undoing.

    I think anyone criticising Leonard for anything right now; has overly high expectations for someone coming off a major shoulder injury, and almost a whole season away from the game.

    I thought Meyers had some nice defensive plays, but we need the man to rebound. Making shots would be nice too

    He's trying to lower his trade value.

    Dude his contract is cheap. Per year his contract will be less than 10% of the cap. That's nothing

    It's not nothing. IF you're used to a 70 million dollar cap, you wouldn't pay 7 mil for a guy who sucked. You can get a guy like Meyers for the minimum.

    He is not hugely expensive but will be hard to get rid if he doesn't significantly improve, nobody will need him like this. If you look at him for $10M and Harkless for the same price, they are worlds apart.

    If not healthy enough to play don't play him. He needs get over the mental aspect of the game that if he mix it up under the boards he might get hurt. Your not doing yourself or the team any good. Right not even Neil wanted to trade him no one would touch him 10ft pole.

    however you look at it, we have a shit ton of $ invested into Crabbe, Turner and Meyers. On the bench.

    Can see Crabbe and Turner getting some shine purely due to the lack of competition and we've kinda all-inned on them. But Meyers vs. Davis, Vonleh, and Azuli (at some point), he's going to have to be much much better than last year and much much much much much better than whats been seen so far this year.

    NVL has improved, Meyers hasn't.

    Meyers doesn't look great. But, he is just starting to play after a long time sitting with his shoulder recovery. I wasn't him to look great early on. it is going to take time for him to build back to even what he was last year.

    after what five years in the league and he still plays like a rookie still has no idea what he's doing still can't use his body, is a disaster defensively, probably plays with his eyes closed, still hesitates to shoot, and most importantly, still has absolutely zero consistency to his game. I think it's time to move on, and this coming from someone who's been very very patient with him.

    Vonleh has better instincts and I don't see him hesitating to shoot anymore. He's also got a post up game. He's the guy we should be developing, not Meyers.

    Then you got Layman who also looks way more refined than Meyers.

    His hair is not phenomenal. It makes me want to kick him in his ovaries even more
