I want Delon and Joakim back, JV if the money is right. 

I think I’d target Jeremy Lin as a potential backup PG or third PG if Delon comes back. 

As for C’s, if JV doesn’t come back I’d go after Robin Lopez or Zaza. Looney too but all indications are the Warriors are going to pay him.

I kinda understand the whys of getting rid of this player and adding that player - numbers/ money/ whatever else

BUT

all of these works on paper proposals do not put butts in the seats.

 Roll out guys that I can root for.

Noah - check

JV - check 

Delon Wright - check

13 and Ja - yup and yup 

the 21st pick guy - don’t remember his name yet but the highlights and write ups tab him as the perfect player for me to get behind.

dont destroy the whole fan experience for a few years for a chance to make it to the finals and an even smaller chance of winning it all in 2039 ! 

Some of these 2k trade machine written in chalk on a sidewalk on a rainy day proposals no.  

JUST. NO!

Be honest with yourselves- would YOU pay money to see the lineups that some are rolling out here?

would you

Buy a jersey of a guy that you KNOW won’t be here long enough for you to rock it strong?

Would you 

Get downtown, pay to park , purchase a ticket , buy some popcorn , bbq nachos and a beverage or two to watch random ‘fits-on-paper ‘ guys as they ‘represent’ Our City on a rainy Tuesday evening after a long day at work?

Entertain me . Don’t try to hustle me .

*Brandon Clarke - that’s his name *

The problem wasn't targeting Parsons (I don't know if I wanted to or not, but I probably would have thought the Grizzlies had no chance).  The problem was the ignoring of the medical information and still going forward with signing him.

Pssssssst @Grizzled Vet, I think you should remove that name between Isaiah Thomas and Corey Brewer before Toke sees it and permanently bans you from the entire internet!

Seriously, Delon, JV, and Noah for me.  Other than that maybe Korkmaz or McConnell (TJ always impressed me as a guy who comes through with important or clutch/hustle plays off the bench).

yeah McConnell would be a good backup if Delon bolted.

Question: If Dinwiddie wanted out, and Kyrie comes in, and they try to keep DeAngelo, can we use the TPE to take on Dinwiddie?

Draft

Trades

That's the only way we should build our team we always have to overpay below average guys in order come here (Parsons)(Kyle Anderson more recently).

I would be super happy if we don't do anything at all this year even if it means losing a guy like Delon who I really like.

How would that help the team?

I want Jonas, Delon, and Noah back, as well.   

Same for me + JJ reddick could be a good choice, good shooters and can be one of the leader in locker room.

Elfrid does make some sense. I think you need a bigger guard to protect Ja.
