    CJ Miles is same age as Wes and younger than Trevor. I don't know why we are acting like dude is ancient. His floor spacing scoring was pretty handy at end of season. His problem was all about recovering from injury.

    GRIZZ are playoff bound in 2019

    NBA is still a business tho. Casual fans liked Jonas and dude is actually a productive player. We will stink next season and prob won't be playoff contention until 2021-22. I will worry about trading Jonas then. GnG is gone so they are trying to keep people coming to the arena. Ja + Jaren + Jonas can keep casual fan's involved. We are true NBA fans so we always look at things from lens of actual oncourt improvement and championship contention. Wexler and Co have to look at entire picture. Like i said if Jaren wants Jonas back then that tells me everything i need to know. We are also starving for true offensive threats. Mike is gone , Avery prob won't be back, so we want to depend on Ja and Jaren putting up 60+ppg to carry us completely? Jonas can get buckets so that takes pressure off the other guys. If Jaren isn't ready to be Center in his own mind then Jonas really isn't interfering with his development.

    I don't think JV will be center of the future - I just don't think Jaren wants to be center of the present. Ja and Jaren are campaigning for JV to resign. If JV is cool with starting but not being focal on a rebuilding team built around a rookie/sophmore then im good with him staying. I will worry about his playoff defense once we actually qualify for the playoffs.

    This JV argument is a waste of time. Ja and Jaren are recruiting him to come back on Instagram. If they want him then I want him back. That also tells me Jaren doesn't want to play fulltime center yet.

    RIght, which IMHO means it just makes more sense to deal with the guys we already have on roster or under contract.

    Go get an inexpensive solid backup Big body like Kyle O'Quinn. Somebody that will be fine as the 4th Big. Or trade Crowder/Korver to CHA for Biyombo + future pick(s). https://swarmandsting.com/2019/05/29/charlotte-hornets-stretch-possibility-bismack-biyombo/ Going into a big off-season, the Charlotte Hornets could look to stretch Bismack Biyombo’s $17 million salary if they wish to create some extra cap space. Ja/Delon/Jevon Dillon/Grayson/CJ Miles Bruno/Kyle/ Jaren/Brandon/ Jonas/Biyombo/Rabb That leaves us with 2 roster spots (once Parsons waived). Now we have spot to promote a 2way guy if need be or use TPE if opportunity arises.

    Personally, i think we should just focus on resigning our own free agents (Delon and Jonas). We aren't going to attract any new players when they don't know anything about our system and we have all new players. Anyone that is decent will require a gross overpay. I never wanted to run out a team full of 19 and 20y so it would be nice to have some prime age vets mixed in. If i had a choice i would keep Avery, CJ, Crowder and trade Korver and waive Parsons. It would be nice having a little continuity from last season so the entire team won't have to develop chemistry. Guys i don't see a fit for going forward are Rabb, Dorsey, Korver, and Parsons of course. We have enough young pieces to develop: Jaren, Ja, Brandon, Bruno, Dillon, Grayson and Jevon. Having smart capable in their prime role players to support them - can only help their development. Only place we need to shore up outside of our own guys is at Center. Even if we bring back Jonas we still need a backup. FO should know pretty quickly if there is a decent market for Korver, Bradley or Crowder. Kyle Anderson isn't a good trade asset due to him coming off surgery - so may as well include him in all of this years plans. I would ask Jae Crowder is willing to be here for a year or prefer to be traded (my guess is trade). If he wants to go then i would entertain bringing back Justin Holiday on cheap deal. He is another good lockerroom guy and defensive minded versatile wing. Ja/Delon/Jevon Dillon/Grayson/Justin Bruno/Kyle/CJ Jaren/Brandon/Rabb Jonas/ FA or acquired via trade Long story short. I think we should focus on our own Free Agents outside of backup Center. We aren't going to be good so use this season to acclimate new coach and determine which players and style best compliment Ja+Jaren. If we want to add new guys then be opportunistic in trades and scrap heap. Don't go trying to hit a homerun in FreeAgency.

    Why would Dillon have to go to the bench? Tyler can be 8th man or shift Dillon to SF and trade Crowder. I am becoming agnostic on Oubre. I would prefer the Suns 1rst rounder over getting him if i had a choice.

    2019-20 Roster Predictions

    Yep plus JaM was the other Big and he didn't play in the post either. i can't recall if he ever played with Jonas at all? As a matter of fact the floor was pretty spaced around Jonas too wasnt it? Primarily he played with Bruno and Holiday at Forward positions. I am not understanding why some folks think Kyle is a better fit at SF over Jae or Bruno if FO really bringing back Jonas. Ja and Jonas need space. So the other 3 guys need to be threats from 3. I do actually want to see Jonas setting picks for Ja because they can be a pretty violent PickNroll duo.

    Whiteside is a knucklehead. I'd rather keep Jonas than take on his deal. If we had a proven old skool coach then i would be willing to take on that gamble but i don't want a selfish dude like that on roster. Unless we do it to buy him out.

    2019-20 Roster Predictions

    Agreed but i'll just say that Delon is better option because he is more athletic and better shooter. Teams respect him much more from deep than they do Kyle. Because of that he is able to play SG alongside a true PG at starter and still be effective. IF we keep Kyle playing him at PF alleviates some of the non-shooting concerns - either way it goes for this NEW roster he is no longer best fit at Starting SF.

    2019-20 Roster Predictions

    Which could be a good reason to start him - basically giving him more exposure to drive up his value. I just really hope they don't try to hold onto Korver. At the very least we could use his roster spot.
  14. GrizzTigerFan

    2019-20 Roster Predictions

    We can agree to disagree on whether Kyle is good fit at SF going forward. Grayson Allen, Crowder, and Korver were all added just to make numbers work. The real prize was capspace flexibility and the picks. So far we hit a homerun on the pick (Brandon Clarke) and if we use the capspace for more assets that will be another plus. If Allen becomes a rotation player or Crowder/Korver returns more assets then this is greatest trade in franchise history.

    They could've gotten Coby White at #6 but why take Cam Johnson at 11? Why dump TJ Warren to get capspace only to use it by taking on Baynes and additonal pick? Now they are forced to make another crazy move in order to shed salary. Heck i would've taken Culver at #6 and used him at PG next to Booker. Suns org is a mess.
