I switch the Warriors with Denver. Denver are still a very good team. Warriors has too many potential issues. As for us our roster should be good. Our bench has improved a lot. Hopefully Billups can have a good start to the season
The key will be the playoff though. Who will we be matchup with? Will the other teams be healthy in time for the playoff? The suns got lucky due to injuries from other teams.
Good trade. Who cares about the first round pick? If we don’t get to the finals this year, Lillard is probably gone, and we’re going to suck next year anyway.
Nance by himself won’t get us to the finals, of course, but Olshey is hoping that all these little deals may add up to something big come playoff time.
Yep, I thought the same thing. Olshey now thinks he’s patched enough holes that he doesn’t have to move CJ. This is his last trade. The roster is set.
lets not forget Nas who IMO is ready to pop
Or does this allow a trade of CJ/Roco for Simmons?
Couldn't Agree more. Like Mano, Jason Terry was in many closing lineups. Ray came off the bench. Super sparkplug when nobody else can get baskets. Billups did mention corner threes.
Nassir maybe that guy. Fight me.
I don’t think Olshey would make that trade, but I could be wrong. Olshey knows how close Dame and CJ are, and he wants to bring them both a title in Portland
Remember it took him until like game 5 to bench Kanter and use RHJ instead? What most of us were saying since game 1. Fuck that guy.
Yes. Just said this. I think he can have a Jermaine O'neal type jump. Now that Stotts isn't hampering his time and DJJ has been moved.
Nance, who is Covington Jr. (same height but looks less fearsome...Draymond Lite? not qite), makes our PF lineup so short that it's almost cute.
National articles praise the Bulls for getting a 2nd round pick from Cleveland, without noting that it's worthless...top 56-protected. 2-way G-Leaguers are free.
covington doesn’t know how to pass, and nance defends bigs better. they’re not really comparable.
A thorough analysis of why Chicago tried to get Jones before we paid him more than they were willing to--DATED OCT 19, 2020
Report: Bulls expected to have interest in Derrick Jones Jr. in free agency
Yeah, I’ll take Nance over Markkanen, and I like Markkanen.
You think that Covington should back up Nance?
Nah, but I think we’ll see Nance at center quite a bit while Roco could see minutes at the three.
Sooooo Olshey kinda fell into this deal and wasn't originally targeting Nance. Sounds about right.
