  1. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    Forgot about that. I think you are right about Dec 15, or it's something along those lines. My point still stands though (not that you were disagreeing), trading him on the 15th of December is better than letting him walk for free unless we sign someone of similar value in the off-season with the money we would have used on Gordon. Or used his cap space for something huge (landing a great pick with a dud big contract player attached) that would outweigh what you would receive on December 15th.

    I don't understand why we'd just let him walk even if we thought he wasn't in our long term plans. Wouldn't we be able to trade him at the start of next season even on a max? Unless there was someone we wanted to chase this off season with the money we'd have without re-signing him (but that player would probably have to be better than or equal to the return we'd get if we did trade Gordon at the start of next season).

    Wouldn't we have no issues moving Gordon in 1/2/3 years if it didn't work out with Isaac and we'd prefer to stick with Isaac? This assuming Gordon slowly continues to improve? He would still be a valuable player even on a max wouldn't he? We'd be able to get something decent back instead of nothing for him now. The argument could be that we could possibly get more with cap saved now by not signing him for the max, but who would we be realistically signing this summer or next summer if we didn't re-sign AG?

    He's out of reach. I see us going on a decent run the rest of the season cos we aren't smart. Got to hope for some luck with ping pong balls and jump into top 3.

    I'm sold on JJJ, but I fear he'll be definitely gone by our pick. We really need to make sure we finish the season poorly (in a win loss perspective). I don't mean to go out and tell players to lose, but play all the young guys for experience, keep Mario a focal point in the offense once all the players get back (and leave him in the starting line up, this isn't just for tanking, he's actually earned it, and if we want any chance in keeping him this off season we have to show him some faith after having none the first couple years). We're at a bit of a cross-roads with this team, we are close to being a train-wreck but also not that far off getting things right back on track. Keeping Mario and getting a really great prospect (BPA PG or C preferably) and we suddenly have a pretty good core going forward. Get rid of all the dead weight vets (and any bad locker-room guys, I'm thinking Evan and potentially Vuc, although Vuc is a nice guy, he'd effect it in different ways) and bring in culture/chemistry vets, get a good vibe going round. I think the biggest thing we need to address for our team isn't a PG or a rim protecting center, it's team chemistry/culture. I would have to say we'd have the worst in the league by a good margin. This is something that is so under rated and fixing it will help so many aspects going forward (play on the court, a big help recruiting future FA's, keeping our players for potentially less money than if we had horrible chemistry). We can start working on this the back-end of the season and it's something that won't effect the W/L's.

    Surely there would have been more to Tim's decision? That might have played a part but there must have been more to it

    One thing to consider, and I don't watch any college basketball, could things get a little easier for him at the next level because teams won't be double or triple teaming him (from the get go anyway)? Or will one long athletic NBA defender be enough to shut him down? Could better offensive players at the NBA level help getting him open more than college? (like GSW do for Curry)

    Kidd's rubbish. Think Hammond had issues with him anyway.
  9. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    Good post, I agree with everything said here.
  10. Magic vs hawks

    He said that dj is a veteran player and it makes things 'easy' for them (not easier), that small thing does make it sound better. He also said miss you bro under his breath. His words weren't anywhere near as harsh as it was made sound.

    Yeah I don't want IT. I never thought he was THAT good, I think Boston got the absolute best out of him with the roster they built around him and the style of play they played. Add in the injury, age and height I don't think he is that good an option going forward.
  12. Magic vs Cavaliers, Tuesday, February 6 @ 7:00 p.m.

    Typical that JR Smith is 3/3 from deep when he has been rubbish all season. Think he shot well against us last time as well.
  13. 2017-2018 Official Season Discussion Thread

    We have no need to waive Vuc what so ever, he's not that bad. We can move him easily for nothing, we are just trying to get something of value back for him because there is no rush to get rid of him.
  14. 2018 NBA Draft Thread

    I tend to agree. Fully healthy we aren't THAT bad, we're not great but we aren't in the bottom couple teams. We went on a good run early with Ross shooting like garbage. If you add Isaac, Vuc and Ross and get rid of Payton we are far from worst. Ross and Isaac aren't back any time soon though so we might end up with a bottom 3 record, still don't think we'll be bottom though.
