    Me too. Was the first big move I made in my 2K franchise. Traded Vuc and our pick and some other things at the start of this previous season for Brown. Was fantastic, developed that starting 5 into a force. Kept Ross around as the 6th man, good times.

    I would love Brown as our long-term SG. If we could get him and still keep Fultz, Gordon, Isaac and Bamba I'd be stoked. If Fultz and Bamba both develop towards their potential, and the other 3 continue to improve, a Fultz - Brown - Isaac - Gordon - Bamba is an incredibly fun and athletic team.

    Do you guys think his new form on his jumper is good? Anyone know if it's the same as when he was playing hurt at Philly? It's definitely different to college but wondering if he's changed it since Philly.

    In regards to Okeke, can he rehab with the Magic medical staff? Can he join the G league team towards the end of the season? If not, can he train with either the Magic or G league team? If none of these things, can he join the team and help out in any way like when Bamba was injured and Clifford got him to do some things on game nights?

    I love that play. I remember watching it and thinking it's a really strong play. I think it only really works with someone that is as dangerous from deep as TRoss but also as athletic, it's the perfect play for him and I hope we continue to run it, think we can do more with Ross other than screens for 3s.

    So with still no Chuma news does this make one scenario more likely than the other or it's pretty much the same since week one of drafting him?

    Hopefully his form carries over and he has a career season and opts out of his contract. Win win.

    I'm going to the pub tonight to watch Australia v Spain, hopefully we can get the win, tournament wide open now. We've been great without Simmons, Baynes and Mills especially have been so good.

    4thewin makes a good point about numbers. We can't get too caught up in judging our players by the numbers they put up compared to the past seasons. If things pan out with Fultz you are going to get an extra 10 or so PPG compared to our last backup PGs, also the addition of Aminu. Add that to the jump in play of Evan compared to his poor season last season, Isaac and hopefully AG again and we are going to have points spread around a lot of sources. Vuc and Ross in particular are going to see their PPG go down, we can't judge them strictly on that or we're going to be disappointed. Vuc should be judged on his defence and effort because even his assists should go down if things pan out with Fultz.

    Any updates on Okeke?

    Yeah fair enough, I don't think I really thought it right through. Just looking for some reason why he isn't signed yet. I really hope we aren't playing hard ball with him and in the process annoying him, we're trying to build a good culture so you don't want to get these things wrong.

    Waiting a year and then starting his contract can be a very good thing for Okeke. Players want to put the best 3 'first' seasons together to get the biggest first contract possible. Delaying the start to these first seasons means Okeke can use our training facilities, staff, train with NBA players and play on our G League roster this season and be primed and ready to go next season for his 'rookie' season. He effectively will have 1 extra season to get to his best to get the biggest contract he can. I think this deal works for players that are super confident they will heal and get back to their best basketball, and are confident that that basketball will be valuable to a team going forward.

    What does that mean if it happens? Would it be something he'd prefer or it's something we might be pushing against his preference? What kind of contract will be have? Would it just be whatever it was supposed to be this season but starting next season?

    I've just been catching up on the last couple of pages but this is exactly what I was about to post! Philly used pick one on him, so you can sort of see where their hate is coming from (I still don't agree with it but it's a little more understandable). We gave up just a likely 2nd round pick for him, a player who's ceiling is still sky high (that part never disappeared). So getting a guy like that with a top 20 protected pick you have to expect that there is a big possibility that he doesn't hit that mark, if it was likely then Philly would have got a pretty big haul for him in a trade. If Fultz breaks down tomorrow and is never able to play again he still should receive nothing but love and well wishes from us Magic fans.
