    Sorry quickly looked at this and thought you said RoLo. I’d say Brook wasn’t a full time starter, especially because Giannis is at 5 in crunch time. Nurk’s act in the playoffs was the nail in the coffin for me with him being the starting 5 on a contender.

    Too early for the "Worst Blazer Team Ever" thread?

    I'd be very surprised. Not impossible, but the number of parties required to agree to such a deal makes this a logistical nightmare.

    That's for them to figure out.

    I'm just saying this on a mere assumption. I'm already an idiot so id be a fucking idiot if I tried to sell that I could understand how to facilitate a 3 team deal.

    It's just feel. Based on nothing.

    Agreed. It's just a feel based on nothing but very limited info available to the public.

    We can also go back to 2019 with Marc Gasol on the Raptors if you like.

    You cannot compare 2019 playoff basketball to 2022. You just can’t.

    hart / gp2
    nas / shaedon
    grant / winslow
    nurk / BAE

    Would make the most sense in terms of having a 2 guard defense minded on both units. But I'm sure Ant will close games with Dame.

    ya, much like tyler herro coming off the bench in miami.

    25 mil is steep but if he gets 30-35 mpg, does it matter?

    And Ant doesn't seem like the Diva who'd demand to be starting right away.

    got paid already, so doubt he would care as long as he finishes.

    That team is short but versatile. You could put together any combination of guys from that rotation.
