I did not know about his hip injury. That explains a few things
but everyone wants Simmons?
7 foot 24 year old career 16/7 while shooting 37% from 3 is better than washed up can’t move his feet or play more than 18 min a game Millsap. I’m willing to listen to better options though.
His career never took off. The Heat had hope for him, but he just never reached the expected potential. Good dude. But marginal talent.
does oubre make hayward expendable?
"not as good as Simmons" is selling that comparison quite short. winslow is a fringe rotational player on a playoff team. not worth the time or investment. we've had enough failed reclamation projects-- bring in someone who can play.
I doubt it, but makes you wonder why the Hornets are doing this with having Hayward entrenched in their lineup. He was good last year.
If healthy he is better than Derek. More physical on D and can handle the ball much better. If healthy he can guard most wings.
who did you have in mind? who is left?
So no one has any faith in Beasley?
The only faith I have is that he will make sure the weed industry here stays afloat.
Even washed up Millsap was better than Winslow. If we're talking reclamation projects, i might even take Ntilikina or Dennis Smith Jr. over Winslow. Or Willy Hernangomez/Patrick Patterson/Baynes as Nurk injury insurance. I'd also kick the tires in figuring out why Reggie Jackson and Schroeder don't have deals.
how about Nikiloz Tskitishvili?
Reggie Jackson played some very productive minutes in the playoffs. Wouldn’t mind having him as combo guard off bench if we trade CJ.
Oubre Jr to Charlotte
I just think they are trying to improve their bench and make their team better.
Portland star Damian Lillard says the Trail Blazers weren't able to get "some of the guys" they would have liked during free agency as he discussed his role in recruiting players with reporters Friday.
"When you go into free agency and things like this, you never know what happens," Lillard said during a media availability at the Tokyo Olympics. "You never know where guys are going to end up and why they go there. You just try to have conversations and convince guys to be a part of our team.
"And obviously, this go around, we wasn’t able to go out there and just get some of the guys that we would have liked, and you go down the list and you go through the guys that are out there that you like who haven’t committed to a team or was a part of your plans in free agency and you get the ones that want to be a part of what you’re doing. And I think that’s what we did."
From the Athletic. Wonder who he’s talking about. Batum and Porter for sure. Not sure who else. Nice to hear he’s been active in recruiting, but our FA options were always limited.
I bet McLemore was a guy dame wanted. As for who he wanted that they didn’t get, Porter is the best guess.
