    A few sites say we’re the 2nd youngest team in the league, at 24.6 years old per player.

    Let it bake! We can afford to be a little bit patient, especially with what this roster is currently showing us.

    Maybe add a solid, aging vet to this roster via trade (thinking of the Pippen trade), and I like our window for the next few seasons.

    People are starting to take notice. Rich Eisen mentioned Dame for MVP today, says he’s not getting credit since he’s so far West.

    We need a really solid wing. Harkless ain't it. Aminu ain't it. Turner is okay in spurts. Layman is a bust.

    We need a wing.

    Think Layman is fine. He's gonna be like Pat where he contributes for one season before they cut in loose. Cheap rotation player.

    But otherwise agree, we need a wing that is actually consistent.

    Yep, Paul George would be so perfect for this team but I don't see us getting him. Last summer was probably our only chance.

    Thoughts on Otto Porter? Might be tough for Washington to afford Wall, BB3, Otto, and now Oubre this summer?

    PG13 will be on our roster opening night next season. Mark my words FAMS!

    Especially if POR beats OKC in the playoffs. PG13 will flee Russ and cow town for POR just like KD did for GSW.

    We are a wing away from being a contender. But right now we are cooking with gravy!

    I would still do a sign-and-trade for him, even if it cost us CJ.

    I know this could be sacreligous and would never happen but we really need to un-retire a couple of jerseys.

    You identified the Jersey color FAMS, but that's Melo.
