    Ah I didn’t realize that was your point. Well Eubanks has done quite admirably through two games despite limited athletic ability. Vando is that much better than Eubanks imo and he’s not much smaller. I think you can survive with one 7 footer in today’s NBA, and we still have Sarr who I’m interested to see if he can be a long term backup big. There aren’t any C’s I would trade a 1st for, all the good ones are ones that teams don’t just get rid of. I don’t even think I’d give up a 1st for Nurk and Turner to switch teams.

    How many guards would that make it on the roster?

    If the trade was Ross and two lightly protected 1sts for Hart, sure. Otherwise, I’m good.

    to each their own, but i think vando would be a great small-ball 5 if he’s next to 3s and 4s like grant, nas, and winslow

    That’s exactly what I was thinking as well. I think Ant + Sharpe + Little + Grant/Walker + Vando would really be able to run on most opposing benches. Nurk and Sarr would both benefit playing with Dame more in the PnR.

    Hart to me is the GLUE guy on this team, his energy/hustle/defense/fast break running is and can be a key driver for this team. I know he is an expiring but he has the intangibles that make the whole team better, unless we are looking bad in January (look pretty decent so far and we can improve a lot) then he's a keeper IMO.

    We need shootah’s. Ross can play the 3. Good size.

    Plus I think he can be had on the cheap

    Id rather keep that spot/role open for Shaedon. And focus on bigs as targets. Eubanks/Winslow is a bit shaky rotationally longterm

    Love Hart but i dont think he lasts past the deadline. Doesnt make sense to invest too much in him when we have Shaedon and GP2 already

    We do need size. Almost desperately. Watford will help when he comes back. I’m not expecting much from Sarr.

    todays nba I think shot makers supersede size

    I’m not giving up anyone right now two games into the season. We still have until the deadline to see how everything fits and we’re currently judging them off two games. All we know is that we are set a PG/SG for a long time and Hart plays one of those positions. Literally just seven days ago almost everyone here was freaking out about this team not being good. Now Hart can’t be traded for anything. What’s changed?

    Eventually, if any team is offering two 1sts for Hart or anything that is a complete overpay even for a high quality role player, you gotta let him go. The same people saying “I hope Cronin’s not married to Simons” are now married to Hart after two games…what are we even talking about right now?

    Who’s going out for Ross to come in? The only contract that is around Ross’ is Hart. I could see the Magic making a deal for Hart if they were really surging up the EC, but why would we trade Hart for Ross if it wasn’t a gross overpay in our favor?

    Hart will be more expensive than GP2 tho.

    Hart is twice the player GP is on offense which is why he’ll cost over 2x as much to keep.

    He’s bounced around a lot thus far in his career. We might get him on a discount

    How much would it cost for you to think sending Hart out is worth it? Right now, it has to be quite a return to make anyone here happy right?
