    Magic Vs. Hawks - Sunday, March 17 at 6:00 P.M.

    I was happy with what I saw from MCW. Definitely an upgrade to Grant.

    And we also have to start playing to our rosters strengths (fast pace), and that can't happen with Vuch. We need to move on, a little short term pain for long term gain.

    I've said this before but I definitely mean it this time, I'm done with Fournier. I'd be happy to trade him for anything. Package him with Jeff Turner and we get an A+ for the coming off-season.

    I'd love for the Lakers to offer him a huge, long contract and we let him go. Good for Vuc and we won't feel as bad, or look as bad in the media's eye as we would letting our all-star walk for peanuts.

    Yeah but if we re-sign Vuc, Bamba is obviously the back-up, so how much would we be willing to match to keep him? And would he be happy to be 3rd string again if other teams tell him they'll play him 20+ mins a game?

    I agree. But I feel like we won't be able to keep him as our 3rd string center, some other team will offer him a much bigger opportunity and amount of playing time. As great as Vuc has been playing I'd love to see us just let him go. Sign Birch and start him next season until Bamba is ready to take over.

    How much has Siakam improved! 44 and 10, 60% from the field. Had a lot of nice games this season.

    Are we in any position to re-sign Ross and give Vuc a huge 1 year contract? Would he even consider a 1 year contract? I could probably live with a 2 year deal but I feel like it's a huge risk paying him for 3+ years at the price he will be commanding this off-season. I worry that if he gets 3 years and he reverts back to the old Vuc we are going to be in big trouble. As well as he's played I think I'd just like to move on from him (or the style of play we have to play with him in the game). I think we have been building a roster that would thrive on a fast paced style and he is holding us back. If Mo isn't ready to start and we deem Birch not good enough to start then I'd prefer we looked for a 1 year high energy center in FA and let Vuc walk. Would also like to move Fournier in the off-season and get another SG that would work well in a fast paced offense.

    Welcome Markelle Fultz glad to have ya

    I honestly don't understand how more teams weren't interested in him for what he cost. He may not pan out but the risk vs reward is huge with him. I still think what we gave up is good value if he can only get back to the level he was early this season.
  10. Hey guys, I'm wanting to control the Magic in a franchise mode of 2k19. I'm wanting to get some ideas of potential trades that could have gone down involving Vuc and Fournier. Either together or both in separate deals. What are some realistic deals you think we could have made involving them? The game has a horrible system for determining player value in trades. I started a game before just for fun, managed to trade Vuc and a 2023 1st for Booker, then traded Fournier and some other crap for Jrue Holiday lol. I hate doing trades like that in my game, it's basically cheating so I like to try and make things as realistic as possible. So can anyone float me some fantasy trade scenarios, it would be much appreciated.

    The best thing about getting Fultz is Wes getting Simmons minutes.

    My hope is that the FO has told Ross that they plan on moving Evan in the off-season and making him the starting SG. Hopefully with that assurance Ross would be keen to sign on with a team friendly deal.

    Just woke up and started reading from when I went to bed last night. Didn't check any news just read 20+ pages like it was happening live. Felt the pain that was going around as the deadline got closer. Was then stoked when I saw we traded for Fultz, assumed it was for Ross and was still happy (as much as I love Ross) but then when I saw it was Simmons and garbage picks I was elated, fist pumping in bed, had no one to tell the great news except my dog, I think he was happy but can't tell for sure, he could have concerns about Fultz shoulder but he's a dog and can't comprehend risk vs reward scenarios.

    What does this mean for Phillys cap and our position to trade for Fultz?

    Big move. Simmons - JJ - Butler - Tobias - Embiid is a pretty good starting 5. Bench could be an issue though. Clips might be trying to accumulate picks for a package for AD.
