Quality hip hop reference FAMS!
Marks was on the Woj podcast and they mentioned a few names that could be bought out later this season. They also said the feeling around the league is there will be more than usual this year.
- Robin Lopez
- Trevor Ariza (They alluded to guys on Phoenix, and Ariza was my best guess)
- Anthony Tolliver
- Wesley Matthews
- Zach Randolph
- Kosta Koufus
- Iman Shumpert
- Enes Kanter
- JR Smith
I think pretty much all these guys would interest me on some level, minus JR Smith.
I still think Kanter is perfect in Stotts system...ZBo finishing his career in Portland would be a great story..from the bad boys to the good guys era..I'd rather have Trent Jr., Simons and Baldwin than Wes at this point in his career and I'd rather have Collins than Rolo..Collins will break out of his slump, he's young. Rolo is just too slow for our pace now in my view. Ariza would replace Mo well if Mo has issues. I'd still rather have Layman than Ariza although Ariza at this point in his career is a way better defender.
A plug and play guy who's a free agent unsigned and knows our system that I like bringing back is Gerald Henderson. Put him next to Chief and Nurk and you've got a defensive juggernaut ..and he's like Turner in that he's a vocal floor general. Great fit if we're looking for a vet.
It's not going to be Ariza. They've already bought out Chandler - are we sure that's not who it was?
He's a flopper. I hate that dude.
We have no need for any of these guys at this point. We'd be better off letting our young guards have more pt and let Jake & Zach develop.
We’re past the development stage. We need guys that can help in the playoffs.
Ariza is the only guy I can see being bought out. Jamal Crawford has a small enough contract, he can be traded. And yes they mentioned Chandler, so it’s not him.
Wes would help more in the playoffs than any of those guys you listed. That’s the whole point of buy out players. There’s no long term commitment and it’s not like Terry would ever play a Simons or a Trent in a playoff game anyway.
Let’s bump this baby because I think this will be our best chance of upgrading the roster for the playoff run.
Another name: Demarre Carroll.
But the guy I really want is Wes.
Separate names with a comma.
