    BTW, Warren is now dominating Anthony Davis...

    Warren just carried the Pacers over the Lakers, having outplayed both Anthony Davis and Lebron James.

    He is playing like an MVP candidate, and I can't help but think that James Jones gave away the best chance we had or will ever have at a third star.

    I'm very happy with the Cam Johnson draft pick. I didn't like it at all draft night, but he appears to be fitting in and I'm starting to see a plan come together.

    That would be difficult since we don't really have any other assets to offer up before agreeing to trade Kelly.

    Say we call Orlando for Gordon, what can be offered other than Kelly that won't cause them to hang up? A 1st isn't enough. Offering Lecque, Payne, Carter, Ty, or Kaminsky would get the Magic to hang up or at least see through what we're trying to do. Offering Cam is a scary idea, not that I think they'd take him but they may be fans and want him in the package or word gets out Cam is available, which could disrupt chemistry a ton. Keep in mind that Oubre has just been dealt for Gordon as well so our primary glue guy is gone now and chemistry isn't great at the moment anyways.

    You can't have enough wings. Look at Miami at the way they play. Suns need to add not subtact.

    At this point, Kelly needs to play now that we’re 0.5 out of the 9th seed.

    I’m torn... They’re 5 & 0 and rolling without him. Why take the chance of disrupting this amazing groove they’re in?

    And that has what to do with Cam displacing Oubre? You spread your negativity everywhere and it's ridiculous.

    What's worse is I'll bet you didn't watch that Pacers game and are going solely by the box score where you can't see effort or defense. Which means you can't really say someone outplayed everyone else so thoroughly. Stick to discussing games you've watched.

    Has cam displaced oubre? No
    Has he displaced bridges? At this point I'd say yes.

    Cam has become solid stretch 4 (allowing us to have a more traditional lineup) and bridges is limited offensively.

    Oubre is more than Kaminsky.

    It's no secret that Warren has been defending well. It was even noted in the ESPN article that highlighted Bridges' defense and Booker's passing.

    LOL... I haven’t been on this forum for several months. But you are still selling your crap. Too funny. I’m too lazy to check, but we’re you selling your Warren man-crush after he scored a whopping 16 pts on Thursday?

    No doubt... but they’re two totally different players, who impact the flow in totally different ways.
    Hey, I love Kelly and would love to see him remain with the team. But there is a big part of me that thinks that if he were to play now, his presence might actually do more harm than good...

    Bridges' confidence and form in his shot comes and goes. He needs someone to work with him like Fultz.
