Dillon Brooks out 6-8 weeks. Do we bring in anyone?

Recommended Posts

We should have probably traded this Brooks for Oubre. Oubre has proven to be at least a more consistent scorer, and he has a higher ceiling, on defense and offense. He's not significantly better, but he would have been a better investment that holiday for those two picks.

Maybe we should pair db with chancun and trade them. I like db a ton but if he’s done for the season maybe someone will take chancun from us for db’s (albeit modest) potential. He plays tough but he’s not going to win us a ton of ball games

I kinda am feeling the same way.

The Holiday trade is just a bad trade that cost us 2 valuable 2nd rounders which could be used in other trades. I too would have gone for the Oubre trade and give them Dillion. I am not sure anyone would take Dillion now knowing that he is done for the season, especially playoff hopefuls or contenders which would expect getting some immediate help this season.

Dillon Brooks injury may be the catalyst that we need to make another move and bring in a swingman who can actually score in the NBA. I think many in the FO and many on this board have dreams of Dillon going out and giving us 15-17 ppg at some point and were content with a 4 man swingman rotation of Temple-Anderson-D Brooks-Holiday. Now that this won't happen, we need to make a smart trade, preferably dump some salary and try to bring in someone who can score while Dilly is out for the season. it may end up being a blessing in disguise.

No we should not have traded Brooks for Oubre... Oubre is expiring and Brooks is on a rookie deal.

Yall wanna pay Oubre next year?

If Brooks is any good he will have to be payed the next year so I dont see the big deal about Oubre's free agent status.

Perimeter: Conley, Carter, Casspi, Holiday, Mack, Temple

 

Updated after Anderson sprain.

Besides JJJ, Marc and Mike that’s just a terrible collection of “talent”

Can we apply for the disabled player exception if Dillion Brooks is out for the season?

No. Need more injuries and an action on the Parsons situation.

The sad thing is there is only 1 end of season injury going on right now, and the team is not able to win.

This isn't like Joerger's last season when the Grizzlies set the record for most players on roster.

This is the roster.

Ok, but they can still waive Stokes and sign another two way player by the deadline today right? We need more depth at the wing than a big man like Stokes.

You're just shuffling scrubs on the titanic at this point.

Lets complete the transformation of this roster.

Bring in Keyon Dooling.

He meets all the necessary FA roster criteria:

  • Aged vet (35+)
  • Been cut from the roster before
  • Ability to shoot 3s at a clip under 20%
  • Negative DRTG
  • Bench scrub

But he might not make it because he doesn't meet the criteria of having >2 knee reconstructions

How about Jamaal Franklin? We're already paying for him anyway.

I forgot about him. He must be doing great overseas

I was thinking Rade Zogorac or Janis Timma.
