    Offseason Moves and Plans

    I like to view it as we have had 4 big rotation but only one of them was an offensive weapon past 20ft. If BC and Adams are in the immediate plans then its imperative to have another Big that can stretch the floor. Tillie has the summer to audition for the part but i'd prefer it be a 4/5 Stretch Big which is why Santi is intriguing as a solution. I like Kyle but you can't resign him and solve the Big rotation issue. It will just mean more BC+Kyle minutes just like resigning Tyus will mean more Ja+Tyus minutes. Its time to move on from both of them and replace them with more versatile players. Here are our last Free Agent signings (that didn't come from a 2way) Tyus (RFA) Kyle (RFA) So if we grab a FA don't be surprised if he is a RFA.

    Kyle wont be back and really don't think Tyus will either. I hope he gets the payday he deserves (from another team) because it would be awkward if FO doesn't make him an offer. I really want a team full of versatile mult-ipositional 2 way players to compliment Ja and Bane. Melton can stay if we replace Tyus with a taller combo guard (Jaylen William for example). Ja/Melt Bane/Jaylen Dillon/Ziaire Jaren/Santi Adams/BC That would be very definition of running it back. But honestly there arent really any impact players on market that look better than just mainly running it back and depending on internal growth. I am more excited to see who we draft then who we trade for or sign.

    Dillon Brooks Has to Go

    Yea i dont think he will be moved next season. I think how ZW develops will greatly impact if they resign Dillon or not.
  4. he looks like a FO type for sure. I am def game if we manage to scoop him up.
  5. That does sound like a pretty good combo if we stay were we are at. if Tyus isn't gonna be back; i really really want a combo with real scoring potential. Because like it or not Ja's injury history is kinda worrisome. So if he is out some games i want a better off dribble scoring threat available than Dillon (no duh).
  6. oh i am super frustrated with him as well and he still needs to improve in the areas you pointed out. I just want to make sure the fans appreciate and recognize the growth has has made. I think you are also underselling what he can already do by labeling him as just "All three-point shooting and blocked shots". He is a legit defensive anchor. So right now his floor is defensive anchor/3pt shooter - that is a darn good floor.

    Dillon Brooks Has to Go

    I will put it this way. FO won't be looking to move off Dillon but they will definitely take calls.

    I see you all's point. After having time to cool down and be realistic. Dillon is harder to replace than we think. Especially for a team that is shifting to Championship run mode. There is an argument that Dillon did what he did simply because Ja wasn't available and Bane was injured. Honestly who else was available to takeover that role?? FO could say if Ja was healthy Dillon would have never gotten that out of control AND throughout it all his defense was still really good. Plus we barely got to see the two best lineups (Ja bane dillon Jaren Adams/Ja bane Dillon BC Jaren) much all season or playoffs due to injuries. Which makes a strong argument just to roll it back and look to upgrade Tyus, Melton or Kyle spots via FA instead. I mean who we gonna get better than Dillon for that price? If Dillon is moved it will be at trade deadline after we have a better idea how ZW does.

    Dillon aint going anywhere. ja will never sign off on that.
  10. I agree with you here. Bane is a better rebounder than both of them and thats not a compliment to Bane. On positive note Jaren did avg decent rebounding rate when Adams was out. Its just never gonna be a strength of his. Truthfully Zaire is really just a tall Lanky SG. he is gonna have to really gain some strength, rebounding and slashing skills to become a SF.

    I see it that way too. Only way we roll dice on a "name" player is if he requests to come here. Also I only see Dillon being traded if we retain Melton. We loose too much defense if both of them leave. I expect Culver, Tillie and Kyle to be gone. One of Melton or Dillon flipped in draft day trade. I expect us to sign 2 Free Agents with one of them being Tyus. Ja Bane Jaren Adams BC Melton or Dillon Santi ZW Konch Tillman Tyus (FA) (FA) Draft Draft

    Thanks for the Amazing Season

    Lots to be excited about next season. Heckuva run by the good guys! We were youngest team in the league and without our Star player. No shame in losing in 6. Our designated Starting lineup (Ja Bane Brooks Jaren Adams) never played 1 minute in this series.
  13. Gotta give Mike Brown credit - he actually made some good adjustments. Playing his Bigs to match ours. Plus both his bigs are good rebounders whereas only one of ours is. He put Wiggins on Tyus which shut him down. Because unlike Ja - Tyus isn't used to that type of attention. So take the ball outta the steady PG hand that we really need because our #1 option is out. Which means Dillon gets higher usage by default. Which means you increase your winning chances by 200%. Key to their gameplan was crash boards and let Dillon beat them.
