Seeing Warrior fans being upset about losing him should say how important he was to that team.
Stacking our chips for the Durantula.
and we would not score ourselves. this is too far the other way, we need two way players.
that's the sell of hart and grant.
I love the idea of GPII..... but what the fuck are we doing?
He probably tried to lobby to NO last season to keep Gary but NO knows best and cut him.
We blew our load by signing Payton. Now how would we get Thybulle?
Still think they'd rather keep Simmons then get those players. Need another vet, maybe 3rd team.
There has to be a trade coming.
Nurk hasn't been signed.
We're adding guards left and right.
Something is brewing.
It’s June 30.
Creative maneuvering is needed.
EBEC is the base - they want Gordon while Houston wants cap.
The groundwork wouldn’t be that hard imo
Clearly Joe still seeks out Olshey's advice on things...
I would not sell our future contingent to KDs word. He clearly does not abide by his contracts. He’s a shifty bitch, and would bail if his flow was too heavy this month.
Not in NY
On the current roster, he'll struggle to get more than 18mpg.
Fun signing. Brings a needed skillset.
He's a weird player but was damn good last year. Think he showed that despite being guard sized, his defense and rebounding allows him to effectively play as a 3/4 in smaller lineups. Can take advantage when teams want to put their center or weakest defender on him as a cutter/roll man. The corner three looked like a dependable shot for him as well.
We got better and more versatile with this move.
what the fuck are we doing here Cronin?
if this is to get Ayton I’m gonna lose my mind
An epic meltdown taking place it’s so obvious a trade is coming but let’s all freak out 8 hours after FA started.
Ayton is that athletic rim-running C that Billups wants
Some folks with the revisionist history on their OWN myriad and sundry posts. Unreal. Not naming names, but got damn that's some outright bald-faced lying.
Now on to this move, clearly this is setting up a trade of some of the following: Keon, Bledsoe, Hart. Not sure if we can still trade Ant now that he's signed and I don't want to unless we get someone of KD's caliber. I'd strongly hesitate to move Simons for Simmons for example.
I do think one of the Nets' guys KD/Simmons is the target here. It's possible it's Ayton, if so pity we didn't go for Ayton jr. in Jalen Duren.
Separate names with a comma.
