    Most probable trade partners for Vuch based on their current rosters. There may need to be a third team for salary matches or take on some salary Lakers - dare we take on the Lonzo show? Hawks - don’t really have anything we want; maybe Jeremy Lin Celtics - Rozier all day long Bucks - Middleton, it does sound like a good idea as per previous poster and the Bucks could use some offense. Give me some of your thoughts on possibilities.

    I Have a feeling AG will eventually go west to Cali somewhere; that’s where he’s from.

    Thanks for the AG footage, shot looks refined and great foot work. Hopefully it’s transferable. I hate this summer lull. If AG can hit the 3 and create as it appears he’s working on, then our front court could be lethal in a few years.

    I agree with you. We have to understand what summer league is really about and that’s showing what you’ve added to your game. The regular season is a totally different story.

    Simms is above Iwandu, I keep forgetting about him, but I don’t think Iwandu is that bad, he is a really good perimeter defender but just can’t shoot yet. He has to improve his shooting and then he will be serviceable. It does seem the FO is committed to him, but he will have to improve to stay on floor. Melvin will be going at him; another non shooter.

    Yep, I keep forgetting Simms, but he is recovering from surgery on his hand. We have to get B.I.G on the court at the same time as this is our committed core. I’d keep Vuch as a cheap backup; he deserves a chance to see this through if he accepts the demotion. He could come off the bench for scoring and surprisingly dimes; rated as one of the best passing big man.

    Who do you think will be the player or players to take a step up? Ross - contract year and has been working hard this summer. Grant - it’s his time and opportunity at 25 to make the jump and he knows it. Gordon - I expect a mini jump - hopefully 35% from 3, better shot selection and more consistent D Issac - I think next year he makes a bigger jump, but will see improvement this year as a creator and shot maker - still needs work on his body. Your thoughts?

    You’re right, my oversight Vuch will start until trade deadline; maybe fewer minutes so he doesn’t get injured again before trade deadline and they may start EF if they plan on seeing what his trade value is. It’s a tough call between him and Ross to start as it appears Ross has made strides this summer and he’s in a contract year. Issac may not start until we’re in the season a bit. I guess training camp and team objectives will determine this.

    I read somewhere we were going to have a poor bench; I’m not so sure? Grant, Ross, Iwandu, Martin, Bamba - (To start season)! - offense may be iffy unless Ross and Grant create. Most of these guys should be in town, I hope they’re getting a jump on things and working out together. Hoping for - Grant, Ross, Issac, Gordon, Bamba - (as season rolls on) strong D with immerging Offense We most likely will trade Vuch at deadline only to get some value otherwise contract expires and we get nothing. Fournier long term future is scoring off the bench due to his defense. We may have him one more year or if the right deal comes along we trade. Eventually we will need to upgrade the guards.

    I concur, we need a needle mover!
  11. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    May need to throw Iwandu behind Fournier
  12. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    That’s a logical deduction, perhaps they are considering him a long term backup that brings D and we’ll be addressing our starter at a later date. If we do go after Kemba or similar type star they most likely will be more offensive oriented and we will need the balance at that position. I think the front office did that trade because Mosgov might be more tradeable because he’s more versatile then Biz and we get a cheap look at a back court player potentially with another level in him plus we saved some chump change. I look at it like we hit a single that could turn into a double. It appears this front office is putting in the work and exploring any and all options to get better even if it’s incremental. I like what I see so far. I will be stoked if the twin towers end up being the kryptonite to neutralize the Warriors in the future, then everyone will be copying our build. Mobile bigs and long wings with stellar D; hopefully they learn to shoot.

    Pretty uneventful game; we couldn’t hit the side of a barn. I was hoping to get a look at Justin Jackson. We need shooting real real bad....

    I could be wrong but if Boston is going to lose him for nothing maybe the price may not be as high as people think
  15. 2018 Official Offseason Thread

    Then perhaps a third team gets involved
