    I started this thread with this. I am shocked that they are still so far from becoming a playoff caliber team. Yes this rebuild looks murky and directionless.
    I should probably change the thread title to Trade Deadline 2025.

    right good point.
    I really misinterpreted what you meant by “Management thinking getting nothing is better than getting something”
    Could you explain to me what you meant by that, champ?

    Always thought it was weird the Thunder signed this guy. Hornets is an ideal place for him - he gets a free rein, plenty of PT, and the Hornets fans get an interesting player to watch. He's like a Jokic with half his body missing.

    I honestly didn’t mind not trading Grant or Brogdon this deadline because it didn’t seem like the biggest trades have many 1sts attached, so it’s hard to know what was out there from a fan’s perspective.

    What I AM bummed about is not getting to see the young guys get more minutes. I’ve slowly turned into a Kris Murray fan more and more as the season has gone on. He already was a very decent defender, I’ve noticed that since the beginning of the season. Once the confidence on his shot started growing, he’s looked very good to me. I was at the Pistons game and really wanted to see Kris get 20 after 10 first half points. I wasn’t even all that excited to see Grant get 49, I would’ve had a lot more fun seeing Kris have a break out game.

    Bummer.

    We'll never know what Joe could have got at this deadline but we know he got nothing. I'm sure the young players will get to play and the vets will get rest. This thread has come and gone and the only result is Dalano Banton and that's it.
