    In theory, our big 3 of the future reminds me a lot of the early to mid 2000's Suns. Quick, pass first pg who can score when needed and undersized but hyper athletic center and power forward. Ja, JJJ, and Clarke will be deadly in transition when they are all 3 on the floor together. The Suns were ahead of their time. If we can get close to what they were on offense, but with better defense, we will be a very fun team to watch.

    It may be Howard who has to give up something, and the payoff for us will be more flexibility. Maybe the meeting with the Lakers was for both sides to gauge interest before Howard decides to take a reduced buyout. The Lakers don't have the assets they would need in order to make a trade but if they express interest and give Howard an assurance that they will sign him maybe he decides its worth it to give up a little money on the buyout.

    Cousins injury

    I'd love it too but the way I understand it (and I may be wrong) with us over the cap and not having his Bird rights I think he would have to agree to take the vet minimum again. Maybe if we save a little on buyouts and he doesn't get any better offers, but it looks like a long shot. I'm not sure where we are in relation to the lux tax, that's why I mention saving a little on the buyouts. We'd have to waive another player too, I think we are already looking at having to waive 3 to get under the max number of players allowed on the roster. I think its probably safe to assume Rabb and Howard will be waived, but they may hold on to Igoudala till the trade deadline. Hill could be bought out but if its at full price it would be a lot to pay for someone to not play. If they Waive Howard, Rabb, and Hill and are still holding Igoudala waiting for a trade they will end up having to waive someone who they may have wanted a longer look at like Jackson. Not sure they would waive a young player with potential in order to sign an aging center.

    Could it impact our ability to trade Igoudala? If the Lakers end up using their final roster spot to sign another center is there less pressure on the Clippers and Rockets or any other potential trade partner to trade for him rather than wait for him to be waived/bought out?

    2020 NBA Draft

    While I'm not expecting much from Jackson, there is one potential lineup with him in it that intrigues me. Can you imagine the defensive potential of this lineup: 1 - Melton 2 - Jackson 3 - Anderson 4 - Caboclo 5 - JJJ Not sure where the points would come from on offense but that lineup would have some serious potential on the defensive end. Anderson could be the de facto point guard on offense if Melton is not up to the task.

    You are right, I probably should have said I'm more excited to see how Melton develops than I am to see Jackson.

    2020 NBA Draft

    Starting a rookie pg gives us good odds to get another high lottery pick, but the fact that they went out and got a premium backup pg could be a sign that they do not intend to tank. The lack of talent on the wing will still be hard to overcome though for those who would rather see us try to compete. I'm in the camp of preferring to see them take the year as a development year for the young guys and keep the pick. I'd rather Melton get the developmental minutes over Jackson though.
  8. Even if Conley doesn't win a championship, he can still sit back and count all his millions. When Gasol was up for a new contract, he took less than the max. As a result, when it was time to trade him it was much easier to find a team that could match salaries and still be a contender. When Mike was up for a new contract, he got the biggest max deal in the history of the NBA at that point. As a result, it was a bit harder to find a team that could match salaries and still be a contender. I don't resent the deal he got, he deserved it. but I'm not going to feel sorry for him if he doesn't get a ring either.

    Free agency 2020

    Horford has been a center his entire career, 5 time all star and all NBA in 2011. You telling me he wanted to play power forward but couldn't beat out Marcus Morris for the position?

    Free agency 2020

    He is 6'11 and 240lbs, that's plenty big enough to play the 5. Al Horford is 6'10 and 245 lbs and nobody is saying he can't play the 5.

    I asked the same question earlier in the thread, or maybe it was a different thread. I asked for a link and nobody could provide one. I like him at center in the modern NBA.

    If JJJ doesn't want to be a center and Slo-mo is a 4, where/when does BC get minutes? It would be a shame not to develop BC. Is BC the new undersized backup center, basically Rabb's old spot?

    So nobody has a link then?

    Can someone point m to a link where Jaren has said he doesn't want to play center? I keep seeing people say this but I have not seen that anywhere from Jaren. And I've seen Wiseman projected as low as 7 in at least 1 mock draft.
