    People wanted Nance. We traded DJJ and a protected first getting into the Markkanen deal to land him. And yet there's no thread here about it.

    How does that happen?

    Yes. And he didn't draft Damian. Lucked into Nurk. CJ was his backup plan. Gary Trent Jr draft was on an accident. Chauncey was his 5th choice.

    Basically, all the failure of the team is on him but none of the success because apparently it's all just some lucky accident. Cool.

    Obviously I like this deal but I’m still struggling to see how this raises our ceiling. Our floor for sure, but ceiling?

    I was thinking about this and I think just about the best acquisition we can get in the free agent market is Rajon Rondo. Him alongside Simons, Little and Nance would be super exciting in the second unit. He'd get the best out of the young guys and teach them how to play the right way. The athleticism is off the charts. Just need someone to bring it out of them. Can't think of a better guy than Rondo.

    But honestly our ceiling with this team is the second round and going out in the second round will likely mean Dame is gone if he's still here after the deadline. I'm still holding out hope that we're now going to trade CJ and RoCo for Simmons.

    I'll go on record right now - folks are going to miss Kanter. Does anyone here really think Zeller could have defended Joker so well he changed the outcome of the series?

    Last season, his defensive rating was 4 points better than Kanter. His offensive rating was 7 points worse. I'm not convinced that is a net improvement!

    A big defensive plus at "positions" of need on a team that was horrific at D last yr with a new coach who emphasizes D, and his flexibility to play the 4/5 positions as a small ball C, good pick n roll player, good screen setter, how can this not raise our ceiling somewhat? not sayin a huge game changer but Zeller/Nance certainly an improvement IMO over Kanter/Melo
