    I'm kind of waiting for bonesjones, hoopsjock, or boobs-no-more or one of the other guys that 'scout' these young players more to tell me if any of these guys are good. I recognize all the names but besides GP2 I'm having a hard time putting a game to the name.

    Which players will get the 2 way contracts? Should be 2 of them at least.

    I don’t want to guess because I suck at it... I legit thought Anthony Morrow was a great pick up last year and would be a good shooter specialist for them. He didn’t even make the team lol...

    Problem was, he didn't want to be here and put forth ZERO effort. I was very disappointed by his lack of professionalism, for a guy who was supposedly a hard worker and good locker room presence.

    He had that one preseason game where he was just hitting everything and I was so excited, and so wrong. ...

    I guess he’s already made a lot of money but I don’t get why he would be that picky...

    I missed this. I thought it was mighty strange he didn't make the team. What happened?

    There’s a reason he never stuck anywhere. People just set their expectations too high when he signed.

    Anthony Morrow didn't make the team because he put zero effort in on the defensive side of the ball.
    He didn't have to do much, but he had to show he at least cared.

    So am I crazy for wanting this guy instead of Meyers?

    I'm so dejected by this offseason and last years offseason and the year before that's offseason and the year before that's offseason, that I've decided I might as well start rooting for Meyers. Fuck it.

    Out of these 3 players there only one of these guys I would consider 2 way player and that's Onuaka very good on D and is offense still needs work. But he young good at protecting the rim and good rebounder. I believe 7'3" wing span and 9'1" reach.

    The Crabbe replacement role was his for the taking. All he had to do was pretend he cared. He didn't. He got beat out by Pat Connaughton. 'Nuff said.

    Yeah I don't understand why Neil can't get someone like Jimmy Butler or Joel Imbiid to agree to a training camp contract with the Blazers. Fire that guy already.
