    I believe it was Paolo, Fultz, and Mo Wagner.

    I hear ya but hopefully this time it isn’t just smoke screens and we actually see them sooner rather than later. I’m about to lose interest for this season and it isn’t even December yet smh.

    Yesterday I saw Fultz and Paolo post the same picture on IG of the both of them sitting court side saying they will be back soon. We need them back in the worst way possible because I can’t take seeing Admiral and Kevon play extended minutes anymore and watch Bamba in the starting lineup.

    The problem with this FO is they are always evaluating instead of trying to improve this team. We saw that happen with the Vuc, Fournier, and AG era and with the multiple 2nd round draft picks we traded instead of trying to find the talent to help our 2nd unit get better. Then we go sign 2 way players who have no upside whatsoever and don’t address the glaring hole at the point guard position. We have been miss managed for long enough and I’m tired of it. Sure they did well with the Banchero and Franz picks but it was about time they finally did something right after failing repeatedly with our asset management.

    Exactly you can’t go from being a bottom feeding team to competing for championships overnight. We need guys that can stay on the floor on a consistent basis. We also need to maximize our assets which means stop trading 2nd round picks especially before we even know who’s gonna be there and use our 2 way contracts on guys who actually have potential and can help us when we need them to. This FO is being overly patient and it’s stunting our growth as a team.

    Which still hasn’t translated to wins and we’ve had more injuries than any team in the league the past 2-3 seasons. So all of that means nothing if you aren’t winning basketball games and putting a competent product out on the floor that people are willing to watch play. How many lottery picks do we currently have on our team and yet we can’t even break 25 wins? That should tell you all you need to know…. I’m not denying we have some nice pieces but the way this FO is handling these injuries and all the secrecy behind it is laughable.

    If this is seriously what this FO is doing then they shouldn’t be running this franchise. The odds of us getting the number 1 pick in consecutive years much less top 3 is slim to none I mean it’s the Magic we are talking about. When’s the last time we had any luck go our way? We need to be playing to win, we’ve been tanking for too many years and haven’t seen that translate to wins on the floor. If guys are available to play you put them out there it’s not rocket science.

    Yup I definitely agree it makes no sense how bad this FO has been with managing our assets. Give me Hassani Gravett over these scrubs he at least knows how to run an offense, he hits the 3, and hustles on both ends of the floor. Not sure why we didn’t bring him back when we are severely lacking in consistent guard play.

    Why is Admiral Schofield even on our roster? He doesn’t do anything positive on either end of the floor. Just a waste of a 2 way contract, plenty of young guys we could use it on instead of him.

    I hear you but we are still waiting for Fultz to come back so I don’t think we would see the same efficient shooting at this same point of the season if he was on the Magic. I watched the game last night and I do agree he has a nice stroke from deep and is Uber athletic I’m just not so sure he would produce the same shooting clip if he was on our squad. However I do think we have an excellent shooter in Caleb Houstan he just hasn’t been getting the ball in the right spots and a lot of times the passes he receives are at the end of the shot clock or just bad passes in general, where he has to adjust which gives the defender enough time to close out on him. I believe once Fultz comes back he will find the open man and make good passes which Houstan should benefit tremendously from playing alongside an actual PG.

    When you’re playing alongside Damian Lillard, Anfernee Simons, and Jerami Grant you’ll get a ton of wide open looks because they command so much attention from the defense. If we had him on this team I’d bet he’d struggle shooting.

    Suns vs Magic

    Agreed I think we are finally figuring out how to use our length to our advantage.

    Suns vs Magic

    Crowder is out of their rotation and wanting to get traded. They still have Booker, Ayton, and Bridges plenty of offense for them to win this game. I wouldn’t say we should win this game but if we keep the defensive energy up and good ball movement on offense we definitely have a chance.

    We have better ball movement without Paolo, he tends to over dribble and loses his handle quite often. Just things he needs to improve on as the game slows down for him.

    Yeah this Weltman and Hammond business has gotten way out of hand. It’s like they are trying to intentionally sabotage this team but being overly cautious and not letting these guys play.
