    Shocked!

    But seriously, this is a good move. Second unit just got another scorer.

    Gotta be pushing Leonard out of the rotation. No reason to bring him in if not to play. I wonder what effect this'll have on Collins.

    How hilarious is it that Olshey only deals with Bartlestein why doesn’t Bartelstein run this team instead?

    We talked about it before, that this seemed the most likely since it is another player that has 'history' with Neil.

    The rotation is going to be a nightmare. Will Stotts try to play 12 now?

    Can’t depend on those guys in the playoffs anyway. We needed a vet.

    Yes Portland could use the help but you have to think there were assurances he would play. Crowded rotation just got more crowded. Collins is getting 0 playing time.

    I don’t see the issue. Yeah, we might be playing 11 guys, but I wouldn’t say 11 guys deserve to be playing.

    Turner
    Hood
    Harkless
    Collins
    Kanter

    At least that’s what I’d do.

    We just have to strategically get away with 6 men of the floor just like before.

    He wanted to go somewhere that he could start or get 'starter' minutes. Someone (or two) is going to have to sit.

    Kanter is unplayable against teams like Houston or Warriors, but anyway. At least it's something

    Boston fans offer up a big 'FU'. :cheers:

    How did we get him when Neil told us they all went to big market teams? This does not compute... :matrix:
