    2019 Offseason Thread

    Well said. Saying a #6 pick needs more time after his rookie year to develop is ludicrous. If he cannot play in year 2, not necessarily an all star season needed, a mistake has been made. You don't learn on the bench. If we have Bamba and Birch that is a good enough start. Just think of Vuc vs Toronto. I rest my case.

    I think your fears are unfounded. Injuries are a part of the game and the NBA is a grueling season. I am sure the trainers are working on his entire body to minimize risk. I think it is good news that he is listed on the summer league roster and hope we can see how he has progressed. I remember Isaac, last summer, just showed how much more comfortable he was and looked how that turned out for us. Hope to see that growth in Bamba.

    Agree totally and the sooner we find out the better. I am optimistic because I thought Bamba flashed signs of what he could do this past year before his injury. We saw the strides Isaac made in year 2 so perhaps Bamba can do the same. Put in the hard work this summer and let's see. Not going to find out limiting his minutes.

    Bye bye. Did you watch the playoffs. He is not an All Star and is probably why his stock has fallen. All Stars don't play like that.

    i would not mind giving him his $25 million on a 1 year deal only with a team option 2nd year. Just think if we give him $20-$25 million we have Mozgov at $17 million plus Bamba at $5.7 million. That's $42-$47 million dollars for your center position. I do not think we can afford Vuc even one more year but anything more than a 1 year deal means Bamba pick was a mistake or our FO has lost their mind.

    Another one we should watch is Kendall Stephens from Nevada.....92% FT shooter, 43% 3pt shooter this year. 6'6" or 6'7" guard with 6''11" inch wingspan. It was either FanSided or Bleacher report that listed him as one of 6 undrafted free agents that could make a difference. G league material?

    I am OK with Fournier's contract because we are going to have to be wise with our money. We will now have 3 guys we are high on Fultz, Isaac and Bamba, then add Okeke to the potential list that in the next few years will come off rookie contracts looking to cash in. We do not know what the dollar payout will be and we have them on relatively cheap rookie contracts. Look at the Lakers dilemma. They have two superstars and the debate is add a third and fill the rest of the roster with minimum contracts and have no depth or use the rest of the salary cap to add multiple decent players for depth. We may need Fournier's money for our own players when the time comes. Capology is an important management issue. It is not easy to keep all your good players and I hope we have good money management when the time comes. I still remember Shaq leaving. It was not a good time.

    I like this pick and the more highlights I see and comments from sportwriters, broadcasters and rival teams that I read I like it even more. Yeah we will have to wait but with modern medicine in dealing with the injury, I cannot wait for his return. So much to like about his attitude, skill set and overall maturity and I see where some saw him as a lottery pick, as high as 9. Now it looks like Weltham had to act or he would have been gone. Welcome to the Magic, Chuma Okeke, glad to have you.

    Good master plan. The only indicator that that could change is if we stretch Mozgov this year which I have not heard of recently. Only reason to do that is free up money for a FA this year. But, like I said, I have not heard any indication that will happen nor any information that it will happen. Otherwise next summer will be our year to delve into FA and I am good with that too.

    I concur and his stats tell the story. If Ross and Vuc leave I am OK keeping him because we can't trade him (nobody wants him and his salary). I would rather seem him come off the bench if we can find another 2. He is not the long term answer since his stats show him declining (this year in particular) not really improving.

    I hit enter by mistake...I liked not having Martin back and believe your roster make up looks good. Now if Ross bolts who knows?
