    Is it time for Penny

    I’m well aware and convinced about Penny’s coaching skills now! :)

    I also think we should let Cliff go. Even himself, I think he wouldn't be too much against it. Stan Heath would be my first choice. But I would also like if we convince Kenny Atkinson to become head coach again. I know Penny was coaching in Memphis but I am not aware about his coaching skills.
  3. Okeke looking very good tonight, reading well the game, finding his place and shooting well. After yesterday, it has to feel good to see him playing like this. Bamba not so well but still interesting to see. On the other hand, MCW and Bacon doing their thing and Ennis forcing a bit too much.

    2021 Trade Deadline Thread

    About AG deal, I am looking forward on how RJ Hampton will develop and he may end up being a great return. I am a bit surprised he is "only" 6"4... exactly the same as Fultz but hopefully he plays more like a scorer rather than a playmaker. The pick we got is only in 4 years but it makes some sense as DEN should not be a bad team in the next 2/3 years, at least. Fournier return is ok, imo. It is for a 6-month rental so it would be really hard to get much more than that. Honestly, I would be way more frustrated if I was a BOS fan... The trade deadline has passed and they didn't address their main weakness. Aminu would have made a lot of sense for them, but hey, I'm not going to feel bad for them, especially for Danny Ainge.

    2021 Trade Deadline Thread

    Still about yesterday, I'm glad CHI didn't trade for Lonzo Ball. Don't get me wrong, Vuc definitely improves them offensively. But have they gotten Lonzo, they would improved even more and seriously degrade this years pick value. They will still be a bad team defensively, so this will play in our favor. I expect the pick to be, at worst, in the early teens.

    Very interesting, with very good questions. Thanks for sharing Jay Magic! I am happy with our way forward. It was about time but I am just not able to rest assured with Weltman and his decisions... I am very concerned about what he is going to do with all the cap space, especially with such a bad free agency this offseason. I am also concerned about his draft choices, but let's wait for the ping-pong balls first. He also praises Cliff all over and says he is the same guy and doing the same thing today as in every other day... Well, he shouldn't. At least starting off today... I really think he is not the best coach for us, not anymore. This "rebuild" requires giving the young guys all the playing time available and help them in their development and his track record does not validate that. In case he continues, I hope he proves me wrong.

    It would be logical to move Cliff from head coach promote the recently crowned Lakeland's coach. I think he deserves the shot and this would be the best timing.

    Nope, I didn't see it coming this way... I wanted to shake up things but this Vuc trade tastes "akward"... I'm going to wait to see all trades, there surely will be more, until making my head around it... Hold tight!

    Honestly, I can't make up my mind if, in case we deal with BOS, we would be better off keeping Smart or not. I like a lot his energy and toughness and we definitely need that but he doesn't look to be the scorer or a great complement to Fultz. But yes, we could always trade him later on for further assets as for sure there would be interest on him. The content of the posted by the New Guy and TNB are really good news. Every time I think about sending AG to either BOS or HOU, and getting Smart or Oladipo in return, I think it would make sense to add a 3rd team. One of the most obvious for me would be ATL, and again based on the rumours, it would be something around: BOS or HOU gets AG ATL gets Smart or Oladipo ORL gets Bogdanovic + Reddish + 1st rd pick I think BOS/HOU and ATL would be up for it. My concern is us getting that contract of Bogdanovic... I do like him as a player and think he would help us but his contract is ugly...

    Add Birch and I am all for it. For me, R.Williams is the more interesting of all the young guys from Boston and having Bamba competing for minutes with him can only improve his motivation. It would solve any roster spot problem for us and Boston would like to get an hustling center.

    IMO, this is mainly a consequence of our FO's behavior... Looking happy to be an 8th-seed at the most, never getting active in making clear roster upgrades. Their only clear strategy in the past years has been "let's wait one more year to see how it goes". Seeing a player like AG going is always bad but his future should have been "decided" and actions taken accordingly: either really let him go and take whatever was the best return (mention to rumors about HOU interest) or trade other players to improve the roster, either now or in the near future... But as usual, our FO just dig their head in the sand and looked like it was nothing to do with them... Now, our leverage on dealing with other teams has taken a real hit... I really hope this trade demand is an eye-opener for our FO.

    If this is actually true, I would be ecstatic if we ship Aminu and a 2022 2nd rd pick for Dinwiddie. It would do us wonders, not only by giving us some of the scoring punch we need, but he will be fit to play only next season so he wouldn't jeopardize our odds for this years draft. :)

    Man, it is getting really hard to find words to describe our "FO"...

    2020-2021 General Game Thread

    Didn’t watch the game last night but saw that Bamba had 8pts+4rebs in 6 min. This might have been at the end of the game and against 2nd and 3rd stringers but still, that’s not bad at all. Anyone bothered to watch the game and saw how he looked like on the floor?

    To be honest, I would be very happy with that but I just don't think it will happen at this point, and for several reasons: 1- While this FO is in there, we will never go down this road. they are just too "cautious"... 2- I presume that, together with Vuc, we would keep Isaac and Fultz. So with a pool of AG, Fournier, Ross, Aminu and draft picks on the table, do you think it would be enough to get an all-star? I think other teams have better packages than this to offer. 3- Let's put the scenario that we go this road, who would this all-star be? Beal: the wizards would trade him to us and not sure he is interested in joining us either. J.Brown: the same, especially if we don't send Vuc. Derozan: not an all-star anymore. G.Harris: the same and he is not what we need. Lavine: hard to believe the Bulls would do it now or without getting Vuc back. Hield: not an all-star... So who else?
