    I heard they do want him but I hope you're right. CJ would be better for them.

    they need a PG if they trade Simmons. Maxey isn't quite there yet, and may not get there. Fox is a PG and gives them a floor general

    Maxey has been better than Fox this season.

    doesn't mean Maxey is a PG

    for that matter, if this season is the gauge, Fox has been as good as CJ

    bottom line: both Fox and CJ are massively overpaid. I would not blame Morey if he didn't want either

    If taking Harris was the price to get Simmons, I'd be all over it. Sure, he's overpaid. But he's still a really good player and better anyone we have at the 4. If you have Dame, Harris and Simmons along with Simons and Little? You have something there.

    The problem is the lack of flexibility after. And with extensions to Simmons and possibly Nurk, you have a near 150 mil starting lineup

    I would take Roco over Harris any day, especially on this team. We don’t need another shitty defender.

    I like RoCo but don’t believe he’s better than Harris.
    His contract certainly is!

    We already know we can't sign anyone anyways and we can look to move Harris down the line. You gotta make sacrifices if you're getting a star back. And, I'm not sure we'll be keeping Nurk anyways.

    Harris is a former all-star. He's better. His contract stinks but I don't want to hear about it. We're a small market team and we're getting a star back (Ben Simmons). We could look to move Harris later down the line. Harris is a better defender at the 4 than CJ is at the 2. Upgrade to me in every way.

    thankfully it will never happen so I don’t have to worry about it.

    Harris is not a former All Star.

    You're right. I thought he made the all-star team one year. I misremembered.

    That few months he played for Clippers had people talking. To think people were talking up Felton to make All Star team one year. Crazy.

    Ramona had a big article behind the ESPN paywall today. Here are some excerpts I've found: Dude is a diva for sure, but at least you can somewhat surmise that he's not unvaccinated now.
