  1. And play solid D, he has everything to be a difference maker on that end.

    Offseason Moves and Plans

    I like the idea, sign Hartenstein and Delon Wright if we get them cheap. And I would do that Hornets trade, if we get another pick non protected 1st in 2024 and some 2nds. I would say Laravia plays over Hayward too and Ziaire starts over DB, I bet he break out aka Bane this year. Ja/Wright/Chandler Bane/DB/Jitty/Williams(TW) Ziaire/Laravia/Hayward Clarke/Roddy/Santi/Lofton(TW) Jaren/Isaiah/Tillman PS.: I would be fine resigning Tyus short term too.

    I believe they will be that deep, they want to win a title this year.

    That combo guard with size will be difficult to find, FO should have traded into the teens instead of #23 and drafted Dalen Terry.

    Reggie Jackson is way better suited as a backup, good fit, but I surprise for me. I expect him to sign with the Heat.

    I propose a S&T for Ayton on the other thread, but I am fine with signing Bamba too.

    Offseason Moves and Plans

    Mikal ain't going anywhere, also I doubt that they let Cam Johnson go, I wish we could get him here. Ayton is the odd man out and I think there is a deal there if we want to, maybe we give him a contract similar to Jaren. Adams + D. Green + picks for Ayton could be a solid deal going forward, special since other than DB we have our wings signed for the next two years. I know that wings and guards are the most important thing, but having a bigman rotation of Jaren/Ayton/Clarke could be a mismatch that the league would not be able to counter. Kleimann made it clear that Pera said we will have no problemn paying our guys, so having Ayton will give us one more piece. Other than a combo guard with size (Dyson Daniels, Giddey, Ben Simmons, Ayo Dosunmu, Malcolm Brogdon, Jalen Williams, Dalen Terry...), difficult to get, adding 3&D players in the future should be fine (vet FA and rookies).

    I prefer to wait on Cam Johnson next offseason.

    Ok, thats a good point, Simmons if healthy could be a great fit here (ultimate glue guy). I know the healthy and mental issues, but if you could get him for DB + Green + picks that is a great move. Maybe like someone said yesterday we could humble him and change his career like GS did to Wiggins. Also, what is the risk in a deal like that? DB and picks???
  11. This interview show Laravia's passing, defense and IQ.

    I like him, but seems that he wants the max. So I expect a contract similar of what Jaren got here.
  13. I saw it, he didnt look good. I expect Laravia and Williams to play more this year, Chandler depends if we get a backup or not. Roddy need to devolop his body 1st for a year, I think he will play only a feel games and garbage time.

    I agree. That is why I said we could go for Siakam, special if we go with Brooks and Adams both probably not long term probably.

    The 2022 NBA Free Agents & trades

    After the Wizards went with a combo guard kn the draft and the Hornets drafted a big, I expect the Pacers and the Lakers to work a deal around Westbrook and Brogdon. Brogdon + Hield for Westbrook + THT + two protected 1st might be the deal.
  18. I wish instead of trading into the 2nd to get Chandler we would went after Andrew Nembhard, I like him better as someone who would be able backup and play with Ja. Now I see that I didn't point him as a option, because I really liked Jalen Williams and Dalen Terry.
  19. Im totally sold on Laravia and Williams, I expect them to make Kleimann look like a genius again. They replaced SlowMo with a combo forward that plays like Bane in Laravia [do a bit of everything well and shoot the ball] and Melton with a Herb Jones that can make 3s in high volume (Vince Williams). We just need to add those two last pieces, a backup pg [if possible with size] and a streching big that can be a help defender [a poor man Jaren]. That last one is difficult to find, Batum as a FA or Siakam as a trade option are the closest undersized version of that.

    Steal of the draft

    FO did it again, they find a Herb Jones type of prospect late in the 2nd round. Since Laravia is a rotation player (SlowMo minutes) and I expect Ziaire, Clarke and backup pg (Tyus or any other we sign via FA) to play most of the minutes out there. I can see Vince being the last guy, playing the Melton role as a 3&D option. Ja/FA pg/Bane Bane/Ziaire/VWill or DB DB/Ziaire/VWill or Laravia Jaren/Clarke/Laravia Adams/Clarke/Jaren Chandler, Konchar, Roddy and Santi or Tillman (if he works on his jumper [spot up and corner 3s]) will play minutes here and there.

    Steal of the draft

    Post who do you guys believe will be the steal of the draft. There are several players there I like that could be: Jalen Williams Jovic Terry Kendall Brown Jaylin Williams Laravia Josh Minott Gabriele Procida But Seabron might be available at 47th, if so that is crazy value. The guy can play and is a jumper away to be late lottery material.

    Welcome Keve Aluma and Ronaldo Segu

    Possible future Hustle guys.

    If we keep KD, Ja, Jaren, Bane and Clarke; you have enought good player that you could find complementary pieces (vets) to come here and try to win a title or two. The problemn is that the Nets will want Bane and possible Clarke on a deal for KD.

    The 2022 NBA Free Agents & trades

    Siakam is a two way star player, 5 year younger than KD and would cost way less. Like I said, no way we get KD unless we go for a big trade possible adding Bane to it: Bane + DB + Adams + picks (more than 4) that would be too much of what we have, special adding Bane to it.
