    I count eight, but it is still a weird stat.

    I think you attached the wrong link - that is a Gallinari/Ferguson for Fournier/Bamba link.

    And it won't matter, cause I'm not planning on living another 200+ years; are you?

    Isn't perfect?!? Yeah, any measure that says Vuc is a better defender than Aaron Gordon isn't even close to perfect!

    I loved one of the responses - "I would love it if they made it back to the NBA, just not on my team."

    Have you ever thought that they didn't make a backcourt move because they have had six months to evaluate Fultz and it made them confident they didn't need to make another backcourt move?

    I thought I had Maple Syrup Urine Disease too, but I switched to fruit on my pancakes, and it went away.

    Will AG Become Elite?

    I’m pretty sure Kawhi is one and AG is three.

    I meant the point of the original poster, so we’re on the same page there.

    Turn your phone sideways and you can sort of make sense of them, but not sure what the point is.

    I'll have to admit, I am a little concerned that we haven't added/upgraded our back court rotation, but I can see why they went with Aminu. Truth is we didn't have a backup 3/4 on the team. Okeke is both a rookie, and he won't be back from injury until somewhere around the all-star break. Fournier, Iwundu, and Ross can all play some SF, but really you only have Gordon and Isaac to play PF; so if one of them goes down you are really short there, and they spend time on the floor together as the SF and PF. I don't know what we have with Frazier, but he is another 2/3, if he is ready for minutes. I would have liked to see us pick up another combo guard (2/1), like a Satoransky; but we as fans don't know where Fultz is in his process, and maybe the FO thinks we don't need another guy (like Quinn Cook) whose primary position is PG because Fultz is almost ready to go. That is my hope.

    Us multiple years when Elfrid Payton would go play like an All-Star a month after we were eliminated.

    I put MCW as rumored only because of the lack of details, note I did include him the 14 under contract. I can see us going either way with Birch - I know he wasn't happy as the 3rd center last year, and probably wouldn't be again; so we might let him go if someone makes an offer. On the other hand, he was very valuable in the stretch run when Bamba went down, so he has value to us, and we do need a third big for injury protection (unless you think the shell of Mozgov might be re-animated). I don't see Jefferson filling that role, so we might have to go elsewhere. I don't really see us going with Vucevic/Bamba/Mozgov as the bigs. I suppose we could use Isaac and/or Aminu in an injury situation, I would just hate to see either trying to play against a Gasol, Gobert, Cousins, Jokic, and the other big-bodied centers.

    Since we haven't made the qualifying offer to Troy Caupain, we could still sign another PG to a 2-way (Briscoe?) if there is one we like.

    There is also the possibility that we are waiting for the teams with cap space to thin out a little bit more. Assuming that we do re-sign MCW as has been rumored, then we are currently at 14 players under contract. Augustin/MCW/Fultz Fournier/Ross/Iwundu Isaac/Aminu/Frazier Gordon/Okeke Vucevic/Bamba/Mozgov Assuming we intend on matching Birch, that puts us at 15 players. I think Jefferson's qualifying offer only had to be for a 2-way contract, so if someone offers him a regular contract, he is probably gone. That means the only way we could sign another PG would be to waive (and/or stretch) someone currently on the roster; and sign the PG using some or all of the Bi-Annual Exception. Since that is only about $3M, we may be waiting to see if anyone worthwhile falls out closer to the end of free agency. At that point, we could pick up someone. We don't have to stretch Mozgov, if we don't mind paying the luxury tax this year. It would save the cap space going forward.
