    I saw the marijuana story after I posted that. Yikes.

    We could just take Josh Jackson off their hands. They drafted another SF this year, which makes their team exclusively made up of small forwards. That'd suffice instead of the first rounder if we take Johnson. Just send out someone like Miles.

    Grizz sign John Konchar

    I think he could be similar to a guy like Pat Connaughton. Both very good athletes, good 3 point shooters, good rebounders. I think he has more potential than Tyler Dorsey, just because he's more athletic. They both can distribute it reasonably well.

    Well, he has the skillset of a center. He's listed as 215 on Sports Reference, which is only 5 pounds lighter than Rabb even though he's 2 inches shorter. Obviously Rabb is relatively weak, but who cares. He still plays center. Montrezl Harrell plays center, and while he is significantly stronger and heavier than Clarke is currently, he's still almost as athletic and the same height. He's going to need to put on weight regardless to guard some of the more post centric PFs in the league like Millsap or Thad Young. His most value currently is to play the 5 off the bench, assuming we bring back JV. I guess you can start him at the "PF" spot, but on offense he's still clearly a five. He lives in the paint.

    I want JV and Delon back. Noah is great, but he should go to a contender. Maybe we bring Zeller back if we need a big body, but I think Clarke can and will play Center off the bench. Waive or Trade Korver, since he can't possibly want to be here. Keep Bradley, CJ, Crowder.

    I agree about stackhouse, but Jenkins at least had something to do with Giannis, so he can develop players as well. As soon as he gets his confidence up, he'll be a good player.
  7. They are the cheap options. For teams not looking to or who can't spend a lot on a center. Feel like I made that pretty clear. They both still can fill a need for a team, they've both been contributors on playoff teams before.
  8. The problem for JV is the rest of the center market is pretty strong. Horford is available, Vucevic is as well, Randle and Cauley Stein are good younger options, Ed Davis and Dedmon are cheap options, DeMarcus Cousins, DeAndre Jordan, brook Lopez, Enesv Kanter, and potentially Marc as well. Super crowded field. The only team I see getting involved possibly is the Kings, but I think they'd rather roll with marvin bagley and Giles. Not that he isn't more talented than a lot of people I mentioned, but those people will be better fits, cheaper, better defenders, etc. than he is. He's best served just to come back here.
  9. JV can pick and pop as well, just not out to 3. He's got a really good midrange game though.

    I know we always say JV is a bad defensive player, but the stats don't necessarily back that up. At least when he was here, he has a very solid defensive rating, had a better defensive plus/ minus than offensive plus/ minus, he averaged 1.6 blocks as well (which was his highest number to date). Maybe the increased workload/ responsibility made him try harder on defense. I only really remember him struggling against Vucevic, but he gave as good as he got on the other end of that matchup. Doubt he'll ever be a great defensive player, but I don't think he's as bad as most of us are suggesting.

    The thing about bruno is just how much he improved just over the course of last year. Simply put, the guy just really didn't know how to play basketball coming in. The guy went from being timid about shooting to letting it fly in the clutch. He went from literally never dribbling to dunking on people off the bounce. He learned positioning and started becoming a force on the glass and as a shot blocker. All that happened in half a season. You essentially can't teach length, and he's got a 7-8 wingspan, which allows him to contest every shot known to man. He's nowhere near being a finished product yet. Maybe he never gets there, but if he does he could be a high level starter. If he doesn't, well he's still a good player off the bench.

    I'd love Stanley Johnson here to keep developing him. I doubt the pelicans keep him given all the players they've just added, but maybe they bring him back. If he could just start hitting the 3 ball consistently, he'd be really good.

    Alright Kyle we get it. He was a system player there, we just don't have that same style. I'm not saying he's bad, just that he'd be better on a different team. He'd fit on the Pacers pretty well, probably Utah as well. I think the suns or bulls could use him since they need defenders badly. I think he's best suited off the bench and probably as a PF so you can hide his offensive struggles easier. The problem with that is bruno is our backup PF currently, and bruno has much more potential.

    He was a starter, because their starter was hurt. What a joke of an argument. Your last paragraph is approximately the dumbest argument I've ever heard. I never pretended like he needs to be that. Just have average athleticism or be able to shoot at average rate. He can't do either one of those things. His defense is good, I said that. He has a high basketball IQ as well. It's the other things that he doesn't do well. Yeah he's had good possessions against harden and Paul before, but harden took him to school multiple times last year as well. Not like either of them are super quick either, but I digress. I could probably find the videos of Kyle missing open layups and dunks. He's fine, but he just doesn't fit in here long term. I don't him playing over bruno or Dillon. I don't think he's as good as Crowder, but that happens. I'd rather play Clarke over him as well.

    I'd rather keep Bradley than Korver. Korver would never want to be here given his age. He has to want one more shot at a championship.
