    It wasn’t necessary at all. They could’ve easily stretched him instead of dumping Melton/picks.

    This wasn’t needed any way shape or form to retain Oubre. This is Mouth of Sauron stuff.

    That puts what $3m in dead money on the cap for three years? No thanks to that.

    Stretching keeps money on the books several seasons. This rips the bandaid off!

    Another distressed asset. Not sure what was to be expected. It would seem Jones is just going to take the loss of dumping no value players now in order to move forward. It sucks, but this is where we’re at.

    What is the total haul so far for this off season?

    We started the off season with:

    12m in cap space
    #6 pick
    #32 pick
    Milwaukee pick

    We sent out or lost:
    TJ
    JJ
    Holmes
    Melton

    so far, we have:
    Rubio
    Saric
    Baynes
    Cam Johnson
    Korver
    Carter

    Seems to me that we sold low on our assets.

    If this was necessary to clear space over multiple seasons and retain Oubre I can stomach it. If we don't end up with Oubre....this was one dumb ass trade. Throwing in picks and Jackson already has my stomach churning.

    Then we’re complaining about money on the books next year that didn’t need to be there. Do you want it to be painful now, or later? Like I’ve said, it sucks, but time to move on.

    1st, what conditions?
    2nd, I’m 100% ok with this trade. Better than packaging a 1st just to get rid of Josh Jackson. We needed the money, we got it.
    3rd, I believe this means Kaminsky does NOT have to use the Room Exception and we now have money left to sign a SG like they’ve said we’re going to do.

    Oh and who cares about 2nd round picks? This board and fan base generally places too much value on low draft picks.

    Agree 100%. Just bc all the online mocks and fans say a player goes 4th doesn’t mean you were forced to take him there. And full disclosure I loved jJ pick. You’re a gm. You’re supposed to make the best pick. For instance, jones panned for cam pick this year - if cam is great he’s brilliant and if cam sucks he was a total reach.

    They were always going to dump melton.

    Just because the fans like him does not mean the team does, Gambo has been saying he was out as soon as the season ended.
