Let’s buy low on Myles and sit him the rest of the year to heal up + help the tank
seriously... i literally put a list of injured players who would come back next year with Dame who could help us tank just last week. Add Turner to the list
I would do CJ Covington and 1st protective for skiakam and McConnell I d
My trade to Toronto would be CJ Nance 1st round protected for skiaman and boucher.
Windhorst said the teams interested in Turner want to potentially keep him long term and could consider extending him this summer itself.
Overnight I've decided that Toronto wouldn't do any of mine or these.
Why would we want to dump Powell's team friendly contract?
Because we have enough scoring guards that don’t defend.
Powell's the best defender, on the cheapest contract, and plays SF the best of any of the 4 guards.
Now for a starting forward sure I'd looks at sending out Powell or ideally CJ. But for only a trade exception that most often expires worthless; how about we just keep Norm?
If we send out Norm, or really any starter, we need to be getting a useful player back.
Cutting Norm's contract but keeping Dame supermax, CJ $30 million, and Anf likely $20 million doesn't solve our cap issues. Keeping Norm with one or two of the above would.
I can't wait for all the bitching from Philly after the trade deadline that they didn't get fair offers for their franchise cornerstone young all star.
yeah idk about the return, I just see no way that Powell/CJ/ and Ant are all gonna be here next season. Safe bet one of them will be gone, at minimum. And I actually think Ant is the best defender of the four with the ability to get better. Powell struggles to keep players in front of him and is too small to play the three full time. I think the three should be Nas’ starting spot.
Really? I thought Bey was supposed to be pretty good. Has he had a bad year? Seems like a decent package if he is as good as we thought last year.
Chicago's defense has been horrible of late. They may well want a guy like Roco. Would they do Roco and ~Zeller (DSJ) for a FRP + Caruso + a ~bad contract to square things? Yes, Caruso is mainly a defender/playmaker, but they already have Lonzo. Is that way too much for Roco?
bey is ok, but I don’t think he’s as good as Nas, for example. I can see why Morey passed. Grant is also a role player with a green light, I don’t think he should be the headliner for a player like Simmons.
I don't know. Caruso is their backup SG and they liked him enough to sign to a 4 year contract. But they really need a forward like Roco, so maybe if we did Roco plus Mac for Caruso, Jones and that pick?
if you were talking about Siakam I think that might be a long wait and bad strategy
Grant is not on Siakam's level and he only has one year left of his contract. Betting on Nas vs Grant is a much better bet than Nas vs Siakam...as an example
my post had nothing to do with siakam. i was talking about grant
Probably not but sometimes it's just fun to play around with.
