    Yes I'd much prefer keeping Ant to Grant. Although I'd explore trading both, and really it's more dependent on offers having a worthwhile asset coming back.

    Well I agree that DJJ fits the same role just as well, but he earns the vet minimums and Thybulle is owed $23 million.

    Was a horrible decision by Cronin to match that deal.

    I dig that. Always liked Brandon Clarke too, would love to see if he can come back effective after his achilles. I'd be surprised if Memphis was willing to part with him, though.

    Hard to aggregate commensurate salaries without Clarke.

    We owe him 11 million next year. The year after is a player option which I would bet he will opt out.
    Not that horrible for a 27-year-old who can defend.

    couldn't Memphis guarantee Kennard's salary next season and trade him at the draft? IIRC, they'd have to send out a little more than 20M and Kennard's salary is 14.76M. They'd still have to add a couple of players though because there is a real drop-off in MLE level salaries after Clarke

    Clarke is injury prone and isn't any good at ft's. He's a back up, but we already have Walker & Camera basically same size and player types but younger.

    I looked at their cap and they're spending:

    37M on Ja
    34M on Bane
    26M on Jaren
    20M on Smart

    Find it hard for them to want to pay 30M for Grant.

    ~150M for a lineup that can't rebound.

    Kuzma makes way more sense. 23M next year but his contract is declining. Easier to match salaries with. Better fit since he actually rebounds. Also the Wiz are looking for another 1st rounder.

    Kennard + Ziaire + Konchar works.

    I heard on the radio today that Brogdon might be traded before draft day

    They were probably talking about the report from yesterday saying that teams are monitoring Brogdon going up to the draft.

    It’s crazy how one vague report from Hoopshype can cascade into a bunch of other reports who are citing that initial vague report to create the illusion that there’s more smoke than there is.

    "Portland landed the seventh pick in the 2024 draft during the lottery, while also owning the 14th pick, and having four selections in the top 40. Scotto thinks the Trail Blazers could be looking for another first-rounder in exchange for Brogdon."

    Wonder what the plan would be on adding another FRP in this draft?

    I don't think we want to go from 5 rookies last year to 5 more rookies this year. I'd think we would either be trying to move up or flip some of these for a future draft.

    They are looking for one not in this year. They may have to settle for one this year.

    Probably because this draft is so weak, we have a better chance of getting a better pick. People will be less likely to give up picks for 2025.

    I'll take all the unscratched lottery tickets we can get. I wouldn't be unhappy with a couple of high-floor guys like Knecht and Edey if we could also pair them with some boom-or-bust types like Buzelis or Holland.
