    I think Gabriel might be ok in this league. Like a role player type guy. Never know. I liked Skal too though.

    Minny getting off of the Wiggins deal that easily while getting a good PG is impressive.

    We are probably shipping Swanigan for cash too. Then signing players for minimum.

    I will say this if NeO can trade Mario for even a late round second that will be a win in my book watching him on the court is kind of painful atm.

    Sure, if he can play. Somehow, I suspect Neil has a better handle on the likelihood of Skal returning to the court this season. If he can't play this season, why would you want to pay the tax on him?

    Atlanta was in a unique position to use capspace in order to absorb players. They just took Skal and some other dude from the Clippers into that space. Now, the only reason they would even agree to pay these guys the rest of the year is if they actually wanted to take a look at the player. Now, tell me which player you would want between Skal and Biggie? That's why Skal is gone and Biggie isn't.

    There's no other team in the league that has cap space anymore, so dumping Biggie for nothing is not available anymore.

    No, I didn't intend to equate the two. I just think best case scenario is the 8th seed and a Lakers sweep.

    Didn't also get Johnson that decent player and Waiter when not in trouble he can have some decent games.

    Yeah that doesn't look like a good trade but maybe Golden State knows something we don't. Plus they get a top 3 protected pick in 2021.

    Fully acknowledge that Wiggins will be a good contributor in that lineup in GS, but that was supposed to be a toxic contract.

    Help me understand

    Skal salary is 2.3M
    We sent him along with 2M, so a savings of 300k*2 (600k).

    Is that really it? WTF?

    Chris Haynes says it was us that gave up cash to get off the Skal deal.

    Golden State is thinking that Wiggins is exactly the wing they need next year when Curry and Thompson return. Russell is redundant. And they get a lottery 1st?

    Yeah next year 'if' Klay and Steph can get back to where they were that starting line up is going to be pretty good. Steph, Klay, Wiggins, Draymond, Looney(?).
