  1. Blowout losses happen all the time in the NBA. Do you guys remember when we destroyed a Kawhi led clippers team in LA? Bet they just didn't call off the entire season cause of it.

    Andre Iguodala/Dwight Powell

    That'd be a fine pickup if he's healthy. I think they should go get Dedmon personally

    TRADE DEADLINE

    We don't have to release Hill to bring up Josh. Josh is already on the team. Just have to make him active and make someone else (Hill, Kyle, Marko, or Bruno) inactive. Might as well keep Hill around in case of injuries and as a locker room presence.
  4. Not our night at all. On to Detroit. That's looking like a must win for our playoff hopes.
  5. We're a walking turnover right now. They also fouled Jaren several times without calling it which led to a few. Ja getting off to another slow start, plus we have no answer for Tatum right now.
  6. He's not as athletic as Barton is, nor is he the facilitator that Barton is. Barton is also a better rebounder as well.
  7. I could see the Mavs trading for Dedmon actually. CLee for him straight up.
  8. Again market dictates what Dillon will get paid. He's good and I like him, but if no one offers him 20 million a year, then he's not getting 20 million a year. A will Barton type deal or a little more is probably what he'll get. Barton had slightly better numbers than he did this year on his contract year. Terrance Ross was another guy that's pretty similar and he got 4 years, 54 million. It'll be around there.

    TRADE DEADLINE

    Barnes, Dedmon for Iggy, Hill, Josh. They want to dump Dedmon, we still need a backup center to an extent. Barnes is an improvement over Jae. That would probably be the biggest "splash" we could make without giving up assets. We'd have to be convinced that would put us in some sort of contention long term, and that it wouldn't disrupt our chemistry too much. I'm not personally convinced, I'd rather just play Josh.

    TRADE DEADLINE

    Zach lavine would probably take multiple firsts to acquire. There's also been some chatter about them trying to trade for Josh. Iggy, Josh, 2 1sts (Jazz pick and either the warriors pick or our pick from that year) for zach and Felicio (had valentine here, but I'm sure they want to dump Felicio and if that helps the deal then I'm fine with it). I'd be fine with parting with Grayson as a sweetener as that's the position zach plays anyway. We can just pretend we traded Mike for zach lavine and Brandon Clarke. That's not a bad deal. I think that's a fair deal. Anything less than that just most likely isn't going to get the deal done.

    TRADE DEADLINE

    If the kings trade anyone else, barnes is the next likely one to go. Bogdan is available, but will have a high asking price, most likely higher than we are willing to muster. I think they'd prefer to resign Bogdan, but barnes contract, plus an eventual new contract for Fox makes it difficult. Hield is probably also available, but his asking price would easily be the highest.

    TRADE DEADLINE

    Even this version of Hayward is better than Parsons ever was. Plus it's only one year after this one that he's not even guaranteed to pick up.

    Memphis Hustle/G-League thread

    Not giving him a shot is the questionable part, not acquiring him in the first place.
  14. Jaylen Brown is OUT for tonight. Kemba is PROBABLE.

    TRADE DEADLINE

    Harrison Barnes and/or Gordon Hayward might be available. Barnes so they can resign Bogdan, Hayward because of fit and the need to upgrade the bench. Not sure there of their fit necessarily or saying we should actually go after them, but I guess that might qualify as a needle mover. Dedmon is certainly available, but doubtful he is a needle mover at all. Otto Porter probably isn't available, but he could be a good fit in free agency if he opts out.

    Andre Iguodala/Dwight Powell

    They have several options at center (Kleber, Porzingus, Boban). I think Finney Smith may play some more PF, which creates more of a hole at SF. Aka, Iggy is needed.

    Should We Re-SIgn D Brooks?

    I agree with that. I think Jae playing more at the 4 would really help us. A Tyus, Melton, Grayson, Jae, JV bench rotation (even if JV and Jae still start), would be awesome. Spreads the court for JV to work down low, plenty of playmaking and defense to go around.
  18. Rdk4121

    Marco Gudric

    That's true. Not only offensively he would be better, given he's a good distributor and his 3 point shot looks improved, but he could be better on defense than either one considering he has significantly more athleticism and length than they do.

    I personally think Hill is fine as a Vet min guy. He's a good locker room presence and can play multiple positions. To me though, he should be at the end of the bench. There was never a reason he should be getting minutes over Bruno, Grayson, or Josh, young guys with way higher upside that fit what this team needs more than he does.

    Should We Re-SIgn D Brooks?

    Melton's role is fine for right now, he contributes pretty well offensively despite a somewhat limited offensive role. Grayson's minutes depend on matchup. For him to get more time, you have to feel fine with rolling out a 3 guard lineup, which isn't always the case. Solo is flat out terrible and is genuinely costing us games at this point. I know he has a random fandom on here, but he isn't good. He gave some people some false hope with pretty solid play early in the season, but it's been awhile since he's given us almost anything positive. Dillon needs to play more minutes at the 3, Jae needs to play more minutes at the 4, Grayson can then play more minutes at the 2 or 3. I'm not even opposed to starting him or Melton instead of Jae. Also, bring up Josh.
  21. Did you watch the game? It starts there. They torched JV over and over again in the first half. He was out there like you said during the comeback, or his +/- would've have been terrible. JJJ didn't have the luxury of inflating that stat with the comeback. Also, Ingram scored 3 straight times when JV got switched out on him in the 4th, which is when they took him out. Also, JV's main job is to rebound, I would hope he did his main job. Jaren is not a good rebounder, I'm not surprised that a better rebounder out rebounded him. What does that have to do with being effective against a small ball team on defense?

    Marco Gudric

    I agree wholeheartedly, but the fact is that they are for extended stretches at times. And it sucks to watch. Adding Josh either allows him or Dillon to play with that group depending on the rotation. That should honestly help with offense and defense. Josh has really improved on defense in a league that doesn't even value defense. He could realistically average over a block and a steal a game.

    Solo has been hot garbage recently. 25% from 3, barely over 30% from the floor over the last 10 or more games. That's not playable at some point. Josh needs to take those minutes, which also might allow Jae to play more minutes at the 4. Also allows Kyle to be more effective, because if solo isn't stretching the floor (which he isn't right now), having them on the floor together is impossible. We have the leaders on this team to keep Josh level headed with Jae and solo, might as well put that to use.
  24. I don't think there's anything that can make him win the ROY. If you remember Embiid's "rookie year" he averaged 20.2 points, 8 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks, but only played 31 games. He had the best numbers, but didn't play in enough games to deserve it. There's a little bit more games left for Zion, but there's going to be some load management as well so really only about 35 games left at most.

    Should We Re-SIgn D Brooks?

    Dillon has shown time and time again that he can score the ball against most teams despite not being the most physically gifted player. He also gives fantastic effort on defense, and he might not be the best defender ever, but he never backs down. I think we have to keep him as he is our only consistent scorer on the perimeter. Melton is a decent scorer, but not a go to guy. Grayson can get hot, but struggles with consistency, same thing with Jae.
