    There is nothing wrong with a FC that plays well off the bench.

    How about Danny Ainge playing hardball with Indiana and losing Hayward for nothing. Reports were Miles Turner and Doug McDermott were involved in a potential return package.

    It's the same every year. These are the same gd complaints we've been hearing for 15 years.

    Maybe in a marathon. Three steps on a basketball court is a heck of a lot, you don't often see that in 30 year olds whose legs are still attached.

    Team could use a legit scoring gaurd off the bench, such as Burks, hardaway jr.

    CP3 / Carter/ Okobo
    Booker / Payne
    Bridges / Cam
    Crowder / Saric (RFA)
    Ayton / J.Smith /Dialo

    I mean we only sent out 35m and the Bucks could have surpassed that amount with just Bledsoe, Hill and Lopez and they could have only took Paul back to lower the incoming salary that we got with Nader.

    It does not matter. Paul wanted to go to the Suns.

    What is that package you are talking about - Bledsoe, Illiasova, George Hill, and Robin Lopez? You think that is better than Rubio and Oubre - cause I don't think OKC would have thought so.

    How would OKC get 2 firsts out of that group like the did for Rubio and Oubre?

    You think Millwaukee would throw them in?

    Jones had the upper hand, but he was too stupid to realize it.

    I wasn’t arguing against the pick, just disagreeing with chap’s characterization of “consensus.” I’m fine with Jalen selection though I recognize his likely warts.

    Agreed. The problem is that we still have a gaping hole in our starting line-up.

    I’m not saying you didn’t read it anywhere. I’m just saying it wasn’t “consensus.”

    And you’re right, I’m not a jones hater. Fan? Not yet. Still in wait and see mode.

    they don’t get the cap relief there with Bledsoe still having three years left on his terrible deal.

    of course it was the Hornets. Man, that is one poorly run organization.

    More like:

    CP3/Payne
    Booker/Carter
    Bridges/Nader
    ???/Cam/Crowder/Smith
    Ayton/Saric/Smith

    Diallo has been let go. Saric can't play the 4. Cam can't play the 3. Smith can play both the 4 and the 5 on a very limited basis until he physically develops.

    We do very much need a back-up scoring combo guard, but we also still need a starting 4 and a back-up 3.
