    2022 NBA Summer League Thread

    Interesting gane to watch. SAC has a nice team, I do like Murray and my man Queta is showing he deserves to be in the league. Banchero clearly the best player on the floor but forcing a bit too much sometimes. Houstan is very discrete today, playing off the ball. In my opinion, both are because of freaking RJ Hampton… so selfish, forcing individual plays almost all the time. He is no PG at all, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he is out of the league in a couple of years… What could we get if we pack him with Ross and maybe a pick? Maybe I’m exagerating a bit but man, as a fan, it is really frustrating to watch him playing, and it’s not only today.

    Off course they went for cap space. What I mean is that in my opinion, they could and should have gotten better draft considerations in exchange, for instance this year’s #7 pick and not just a protected 1st round pick in 2025…

    This doesn’t sound right at all… Something going on for Detroit…

    Thanks for the insight, Trey! That makes sense and sounds a reasonable decision, imo. Those who really know about cap and tax luxury, help me with this: Do we really need to “spend” Ross to move into 1st round? Wouldn’t it be reasonable to think that those teams with huge payrolls and with pick by mid-late 20s be open to move down, just to not have to commit to a guaranteed rookie contract? For instance, Denver has the 21st AND 30th… i could easily see them moving down from 30th for our 32nd, just for “salary relief”… Or we could even pack both our 2nd picks for their 21st or even look at the Bucks or Phila for their 23rd or 24th? And then, we would use Ross contract and other asset or take a bad contract to move further up… (I’m still dreaming with moving into mid-late lottery, so I may be biased) What do you think?

    2022 NBA Draft Thread

    https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/34089687/2022-nba-mock-draft-first-round-changes-include-lottery-movement On Piston’s #5 pick: “Sharpe is also said to be a real candidate here but couldn't separate himself in a competitive 3-on-3 workout he conducted last week alongside the likes of Bennedict Mathurin, Dyson Daniels and others.” As many in this forum, I am very intrigued on Sharpe’s potential and although I would not pick him with #1 pick nor trade it down for him, I would love trading for mid-late lottery for him, in case he is available. But as there is so few intel on him, reading something like this definitely puts some brakes on the excitement, at least for me… Aminu’s contract has kept me a bit skeptical about the FO, but since then I liked their moves and am happy they are doing their due diligence for next Thursday, so they have my trust for the coming weeks.

    Good to see BOTH in there.

    Oh well… this does sound like goodbye to me. Would we be able/willing to offer him something like 100M/4 years?
  8. For my well-being as a Magic fan, I do hope you are right. Even if I don't see it that way at this moment. Yes, we have Fultz, Cole, Isaac, WCJ and just got Suggs and F.Wagner but we are not in a position to just rest on them, thinking this roster is good enough and wait and see. We don't know how good we are, at least not for now, so we should be looking to add and try to improve whenever it is possible. We should have done it in the last 2 drafts by selecting T.Horton-Tucker and BJ Boston with our very own 2nd rd picks, and should also be taking fliers on prospects that become available and that adds to our young core. And Reddish was definitely one of them...
  9. If this is actually true, then trading Bamba is even more pressing, because we just let another opportunity pass… Also, Reddish contract runs until the end of 2022/23 season, option exercised last October, so there is nothing forcing an extension this summer.
  10. Me too. Looking at the trade and based on further “details” from Woj that ATL were looking for a pick or a young player in return for Reddish, I can’t avoid the disappointment of feeling that we’re once again too passive in the market and not taking a flier, especially in out current context… After a trade is made, and as a fan, it’s instinctive to wonder “what if…”, and I would have easily given Hampton or Bamba to get Reddish… But too late now, let’s move on…
  11. My condolences TMF. Sending love to you and your family in these hard moments. Stay strong.
  12. They’ve had their faults (Aminu’s contract, dumping 2rd picks every draft, no communication on JI and Fultz recoveries), but I am overall happy with their work and think they deserve it. I hope that this new contract gives them the “job safety” to take the next step of this rebuilding process. I agree it is time to look for moves, we cannot just lay back after last year’s trade deadline moves. I would start however by trying to capitalize asap on Harris latest performances. And I think he would make a lot of sense for ATL, they do need a defense-oriented guard next to Young and sending Harris and Bamba for Gallinari and Reddish makes a lot of sense for both sides, in my point of view. As a Magic fan, I do like your proposal but I just don’t believe GSW would accept it.

    Spot on! And me too, I also envy ATL at this moment: they have a star in the making, a well balanced roster and just made very good draft choices (I had Jalen Johnson well above Wagner on my list…). But hey, hopefully we just got our very own “star in the making” in Suggs and are also poised to build a nice roster. Let’s see if our FO is up to it.

    Interesting article, thanks. Indeed, his shooting has been generally disappointing but what gives me “hope” is his FT% which has constantly been above 80% and especially his performances these last playoffs, against the Bucks: 52,8% FG, 64,3% 3PT, 80%FT in 4 games. So yes, it is a bit of a flier (also because he has had some injuries) but imo it makes total sense, especially if we can get him in exchange for 2nd round picks, that are so very useless to our FO…

    Where did you see this? Does it mention with which teams? I am all in on Reddish, I love his potential and how he fits with our roster and timeline. However, rumours about him being moved are because ATL wants to avoid having to pay him next summer or loosing him for nothing so I don’t think they would take TRoss contract in return, also because they already have shooters in Bogdan or Huerter. IMO, 2 future 2nd round picks in exchange for Cam would be the best outcome for both us and ATL.
