    Ok this was actually funny lmao. yeah idk about this guy. I wasn’t thrilled with drafting him. Only thing that stood out to me in college was defense. He wasn’t some crazy behind the back no look passer like JKidd. He makes good reads and passes but to be that kind of a passer you also have to the ball on a string when dribbling and he doesn’t quite have that. I’m hoping the SL coaching is so bad that when he gets with Mosley and crew it will be night and day. That’s the most concerning thing I have. We all knew his shooting would be work but if he isn’t an elite facilitator/passer, it’s a bad pick.

    AB is a true PG. I hope he gets minutes. His **** needs a lot of work though. Don’t understand not playing Kai. Stupid decision if you ask me.

    If so that’d be great. You don’t want to make him immovable. Another concern is getting AB minutes.

    Yeah. That’s the kind of sh** I like.

    Fear is he gets extended with an enormous amount. You have Franz contract coming up followed by Paolo.

    AB played liked someone who’s been in the league for a couple of seasons (despite the TO’s). Added value to all aspects of the game. If that shot becomes consistent and he doesn’t shy away from it, he’s going to be real good.

    I wouldn’t even begin those discussions until after the season is over with. There’s no need. We have a log jam at the guard spot filled with young guys who are developing. One of them we just drafted. We should see what’s redundant and who gives us what we need to move forward. At the same time, we should be watching the trade market and strike when something opens up. Fultz has more value right now than after he signs. He very well might be a candidate to be traded because of the expiring and might be the best candidate because there is data outside of the w’s that shows he might not be the best option for the direction we want to go.

    I wouldn’t offer him an extension any time soon.

    That would be financial suicide. I like his story. I always root for the underdog but until he shows he can be a viable, consistent, outside shooter to spread the floor, run PNR’s, play off the ball, all which would help Paolo/Franz to be better, you can’t even keep him as your starting PG let alone extend him.

    Since 89...The beginning...Why? Because I’m from Orlando and was a player back in the day. I still follow Orlando but I’ve been having a hard time holding on due to the BS that seems to come with this team. Was real happy we got Paolo and Franz though. They are a positive but that can go south quick if FO doesn’t start getting a little more proactive and start thinking outside of their box. I use to post here quite often under the name Magicman btw. Waaay back in the day. My issue is I see a trend with this FO. It’s a very passive one where they spend a year evaluating, praying for a good pick, resign current guys, and some cheap vets who are on the wrong side of 30 and repeat. Right now you have a roster that’s incredibly unbalanced. You drafted two rookies with high picks, one that mimics your starting PG such as lack of a credible outside shot, attacks the rim and plays d and another who was a reach. You got other guys at the same positions you need to make decisions with that are blocking rooks PT which could very likely result in a disaster next off season.

    There was no way to provide Dame a winning team. This was inevitable.

    Yeah but money is being thrown around like crazy right now. Their rebuild is ahead of schedule as they already got Scoot, who also happens to be Dames replacement so tanking really isn’t necessary. Plus what they get for Dame. There’s a real possibility that they rebound quickly from this and become competitive faster than some teams who’ve lost their star player.

    That’s rebuilding and it’s not a bad spot to be. It could be a lot worse. They have quite a talent with Sharpe and a high ceiling high floor draft pick who’s labeled as a generational talent in Scoot. They also still have Simons.

    They have Scoot/Sharpe. Grant will not be number 1.

    The FA to me was exactly how I figured it would/should go. My issue is how the roster is currently constructed if no trade is to occur along with the potential disaster that could happen with an FO that spends a lot of time evaluating when they should be proactive.

    It’s a log jam. You’re admitting that in chapter 4. For chapter 1, I disagree that sending guys you drafted 6 and 11 to the g league is a good thing. BTW I’m not negative. I just don’t think some of y’all seeing the potential disaster that awaits if we don’t make a move with this log jam. There are two sides to a coin and y’all are rationalizing one. Awesome but don’t forget there’s another side and it’s one I’m afraid we might be headed towards.

    No it’s a log jam.

    Harris isn’t a SF. Ingles isn’t a PF. Depth chart is PG Fultz/Cole/Black SG Harris/ Suggs/Jett/Houstan SF Franz/Ingles/Jett PF Paolo/Ji/Okeke C WCJ/? If we don’t make a trade to loosen up that backcourt a little, it’s one of the most dysfunctional rosters I think one could build around Paolo/Franz

    Don’t think it’s the signing that bothers folks. It’s the severe log jam with the ol running it back gang that’s just got some shaking their head at.

    Not good enough to handcuff ourselves to the notion he’s untouchable.

    Lol one game above 500 and it’s done. Ok. I’m sold lol Couldn’t that because of continuity, Paolo, Franz? Does that all really point toward Fultz despite statistically not being the leader and not being vocal?

    Guess who had a better offensive and defensive rating than Fultz?
