How many of us had predicted this one?
I like this trade. Good fit and hopefully he can stay healthy.
It is pretty crazy to see something that many have said should happen...actually happen!
ALL IS FORGIVEN OLSHEY! GIVE THAT MAN A FIVE-YEAR EXTENSION!!!!
Not bad but a future 1st?
I think that's fair for everyone involved, but if Lauri can get consistent shots/minutes, that's a steal for CLE.
Nance was essentially best case scenario in a trade for DJJ. Don’t like giving up first rounders but it’s lottery protected and Olshey does better in the second round anyway. Nance is a great fit. We got two great defenders at the forward spot now with Nurk anchoring.
Although it would be nice to have a first round pick SOMETIME in the future....
Now all we need is a real backup PG. And maybe one more player taller than 6'9"
I still want a backup PG and a third center.
Markkanen and Allen seem like a perfect combo.
Still looks a bit imbalanced to me:
There's your effective 9 man rotation with Snell/McLemore on the deep bench. Begging for size though.
Dame / Ant
CJ / ?
Powell / Nas
Roco / Nance
Nance has played and excelled as a small ball center. I think I’d rather get a point, but who’s available?
We can also use our second two way on a more traditional big for depth.
I like Larry Nance nice defender but we need to stop giving away our 1sts
So... does he start? What does that mean for RoCo?
They got Mobley though. And i don't get why pay Lauri so much. I doubt he had anything close to that on the table since Bulls didn't want him and other teams didn't have cap space. It's strange deal for me.
