    He's not really done anything when he's been given limited minutes and they probably prefer keeping Randle in the squad for now with Cole having being injured and MCW missing a fair few with niggles and illness. We've gone from having too many forwards and few guards to loads of guards and not enough forwards since the trades. We'll proably see a few G league bigs get ten day deals for the FO to take a closer look at. Shame as they did put a lot of time into Mane.

    As i expected and said a few days ago, Mane is being waived, means we will finally add Donta Hall to a 10 day deal and probably have a look at one or two other G league players. FO is doing all they can to move into top 3 of the lottery.

    Portland were my no1 team to trade with to get him, he was the one asset I wanted the most but the Chicago deal was good value so I can't really complain too much and Portland wouldn't have been able to give much in terms of picks compared to Chicago. As far as PG's go, I'm not high on Fultz, don't think he will ever sort out his shot form, hope I'm wrong on that though. For those saying it wasn't great value for Vooch, he's had little value around the league for years. If he had value we probably would have traded him a few seasons back. That to me shows we weren't being offered much. Two get 2 1st round picks (this years has a high chance of being a lottery pick) and a former lottery pick in WCJ is solid imo.

    I know you're fully against tanking, your comments in recent game threads made that clear, there's nothing wrong with that. For the record, I'm no fan of tanking either. However, I agree with what they're doing for the 2nd half of this season and I do think it's best for the team to do it. If we end up with a top 5 pick plus the Bulls pick being decent I do not think this FO will mandate any further 'tanking', they will just say to Clifford, go out and play hard with this young team and then they will use their cap flexibility and additional picks to adjust as needed. I don't lose any sleep if we win or lose atm I just enjoy the games for the development that the young guys are getting and hopefully we get a really good young talent in June. If we win I'm happy because it means the young guys have played well and if we lose I'm happy because we have a shot at Cade. I don't see the FO doing a 76ers for the next 3 years. We're just in a unique situation where we have two starters out long term so we get to take advantage of that for half a season. If we want to look at how not to tank watch OKC at the minute. They are 'resting' all their young talent and just playing a load of G league standard players. We're at least playing the players we want to go forward with and have a coach that holds them accountable when they don't do what he asks.

    Yawn. Your reading comprehension is clearly lacking. Only person that's mentioned 'successful' is you. They've traded away a bunch of players that they inherited that hadn't produced any winning basketball the entire time they were here. Aquired numerous young players, assets and picks for those players. They have a huge TPE to absorb a bad contract for more assets or just to trade for a good player and have cap flexibility after being near the tax line the past few years. They've now waived a below average limited center that was taking away minutes from a young lottery pick and are using their G league team to look at additional young players. So yes, they have made a lot of good moves since trade deadline day. We have a coach that doesn't cut corners and will be hard on the young players so that they don't develop bad habits, i have no concerns about the culture of the locker room because of Clifford. Right now, results mean nothing. What is important, is these young players get minutes to make mistakes and learn through them. We've already seen Okeke make huge strides since trade deadline and the difference between Chicago WCJ and Orlando WCJ is massive. Bamba is also starting to show signs of life. if you can't deal with the team losing and being 'bad' for another 20 odd games I would suggest you turn your attention to watching something else while the season is still running and tune back in next season. Being able to watch some of these players improve and grow these last 8 games has been highly enjoyable and judging by the board being more active a lot of other people agree. . .

    FO have been brill since trade deadline, they have embraced the tank fully and are slowly taking away vets from Clifford and now we're not so close to the tax we're actually taking closer looks at our G league players. I really hope they get things right on draft day. Might mean Mane is out if his hamstring is taking longer to heal than expected.

    How dare you, you absolute heathen! But yes, it is nice to have Cole with a scorers mentality a lot of us wanted a scorer with our pick last year. He just needs to refine and slow down which will come with time (I hope)

    While Ross was deffo chucking, most of them weren't bad shots so you can't really complain when he makes 10 of 15. Cole was actually the one last night launching bad shots he actually only had 3 less shots than Ross. I would prefer if Okeke had more shots at the expense of Bacon and MCW but I think some of that comes down to Okeke being quiet and not the most aggressive. We didn't lose last night because of our offense. We lost because we were bad again of the defensive end. The only quarter we performed decently was the 3rd quarter, that was the only quarter we played decent defence and that coincided with us closing the game back up again.

    Cole needs a lot of work on shot selection, busts his backside defensively though so hopefully he can get himself under control by season end. Ross is just chucking like there's no tomorrow, I do expect him to get moved once the season ends. Okeke only had 5 shot attempts, that needs to change quickly. Harris was very rusty, he deffo needs a few games to get back up to speed. We lose a closish game, youngsters got plenty of minutes. pretty perfect tank game really. So Ennis will be moving to the bench over the next few games and receive all his minutes backing up the 4. This probably means that Bacon stays in the starting line up as the SF. I think there's a very good chance Detroit overtakes us if this happens. I think Clifford goes with the below once Harris is up to speed. No idea if Porter is out all season or not. MCW - Cole Harris - RJ Bacon - Ross Okeke - Ennis WCJ - Bamba

    Harris on minutes restriction off the bench, MCW starts, hoping once Cole is up to speed fully that swaps around.
