    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.

    I just hope we give Bamba every opportunity to become that best version of himself and not stunt his growth playing 16 mins a game behind Vuc.

    I'm not sure anyone has said that, I can't speak for everyone but I'm under the impression that the one's arguing this point are saying he is a 3 that will comfortably be able to play the 4 when he gets a little stronger.

    Green and Thompson are also NBA 5's, and developed bodies. We are talking about Okeke playing the 4 with a similar size. Okeke will get stronger, that's not a 'let's hope and wait and see', every player drafted gets stronger as they get older and train with NBA trainers.

    Do we think we'll be playing a 9 man rotation or 10? I'm guessing it will be 9. Fultz taking all backup PG minutes, Ross all SG, Bamba all C and I think AG, Isaac and Aminu share all SF and PF minutes (with AG being first to go to the bench so he can come back in and lead the 2nd unit). This unfortunately leaves Wes out who I really like but I think we will be better overall playing a 9 man rotation.

    You have to factor in that Zion was a man amongst boys in college and if Okeke could handle him he should be fine going forward because he will be getting bigger and stronger over the next couple years.

    Bit of a weird angle, and not that I think it's true, but do you think there is any chance the FO actually viewed Okeke's injury as a positive? It seems we are trying to build on last season and come back hard with the same group and not having to blood another rookie would be good for our overall record (as pointed out a while back, rookies very rarely contribute to wins). I hope it wasn't a reason we actually passed on NAW after every mock had us taking him. I think we got a really good player in Okeke so I'm not too fussed but it was just something I was thinking this morning.

    Surely we have to sign Jeffries.

    At least we don't have to see any more AG for Westbrook trade ideas.

    Son of a... I put 100 bucks on Harden to win MVP a couple weeks ago. Should always wait till all trades are done but I liked the odds I found on one of the betting sites I use.

    I'd be stoked if Wes makes a jump and takes over the starting SG role. I feel with the signing of Aminu, Wes' minutes at SF will be gone so he'll need to develop his SG skills to get minutes.
