  1. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Anyone got a link or can paraphrase what Kawhi said? Can't find it online.

    Are you saying that building a whole offense around one of the worst defenders in the league, one of the smallest players in the league, who is going to play one of the most selfish seasons of basketball in NBA history, who will most likely be at our club for one season, has nothing negative about it? That's not even taking into account his injury. All our players have to waste a season learning to play with a PG in the mold of a near polar opposite PG that we want running our team. Pass.

    Great analogy. You went with sticking to the baseball terminology and I thought you were done with only swinging for the fences if we get an easy one over the plate but then you add in this gem. It makes so much sense and quite funny to boot.

    Weltman mentioned Mozgov was a quality guy, I know GMs will often say that when they get someone that may not be playing a lot, but if that's true I see that as a nice positive, small, but still a good thing none the less. I've mentioned many times about how we need to get the culture and locker room in the right place and bringing in quality people is an important thing. I remember watching other teams benches during the year after big plays and them going nuts and seemed to genuinely enjoy each other but then see ours after a similar play and you could just tell there was nothing there. I'm liking all these small things the FO is doing to slowly get us back on track. If you look at them all individually you might say they are nothing moves but I think it's not giving them enough credit. Not picking up Mario's option was a mistake, we all know that but since then I've liked seeing what they are doing. The AG front loaded contract was great, his last season will be the same amount as what Biz is earning. Deal looks even better after seeing what Lavine got. I feel good about where we are going. I'm a realistic and patient person and I know we won't be a contender overnight and that's ok with me. There was no quick way out of this. We couldn't address ALL our holes (and there were A LOT) in one draft or offseason. Trae Young or IT wouldn't have magically made us relevant overnight. Grant doesn't either but at least he is in the mould of a PG we want running this team (like 4tw mentioned) and that's a good thing. I honestly felt like fixing our starting C was more important than our PG, and I feel like we could of only realistically focused on one of them and I'm delighted we've walked away with Bamba.

    Getting Birch minutes is a big thing for me. He could develop into a solid back up big and before this trade we probably weren't going to get the chance to see if he had what it takes. Give him 20-25 minutes and see what we have, I'm confident he has a place in this league with the right coaching and opportunities.

    IT was going to be all about him this season. All about proving everyone wrong, all about trying to earn a massive pay day this off-season. It would hurt the development of our long term goal for only a potentially minor on court improvement this season (at the expense of getting less shots from Isaac, Gordon and Bamba).
  9. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    I agree he's not our future but we aren't getting our future anything with Biz, maybe towel guy but that's about it.
  10. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    If Biz is a garbage Center on a garbage contract what did you expect to get for him? No other team out there views Biz differently to how we do, at least we got a prospect in a position of need. I think it was a good deal, wasn't some huge trade but I think we did well for what we shipped out.
  11. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Honestly, at this point, if we can't get a deal done for him I'd rather not have him then have him. He will sulk on the bench, is soft, and I'd rather bring a defensive Center off the bench so we can play a certain style for 48 minutes.
  12. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Would be great to ditch Vuch now and give Birch primary back-up minutes and have Moz as insurance. Don't think you could play Biyombo in that role but we can with Moz maybe.
  13. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Are we planning to give Mozgov any minutes or just sit him out til his contract runs out? He averaged 11 mins per game in 31 games last season. Was he injured for the rest or DNPs?
  14. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Good post. How do we feel about Smart running an offense? Didn't see much of him in college but it seemed like he was a full time PG but at Boston he didn't really play that role. His intensity and bulldog tenacity could be what our bunch of guys need.

    Bulls matched.
