    Thanks for the info!

    This is valid. I couldn’t help but think of Jacquez in particular when we made the pick last night. Still hopeful we had a star this off-season, but I’m warming up to have a Franz lite that can play when Franz is on the bench. Is TDS playing in the Olympics with the Wagner boys? Could be a sneak preview

    On one hand, TDS is the least raw player we’ve drafted in a long time and could slide into the Ingles spot in the rotation. On the other hand, I'm skeptical the 18th pick in this weak class will be an instant contributor when the 6 and 11 picks from a much better class last year had splinters on their butts from riding the pine all season. I get the excitement, and I’ll join in eventually, but need to see our next off-season moves before I make an opinion. We still have $50 million in cap space to make some noise with if we choose to, and we still have a glaring need for an offensive initiator.

    I’m underwhelmed, personally. Hopefully our fun starts on Sunday evening

    5 year $212.5 million! Insane amount for a guy that can’t stay healthy playing for a coach that can’t keep players healthy. Knicks are gonna be the most expensive max out in the conference finals team ever.

    He looked washed by Klay standards, but he still shot 39% from deep on 9 3s per game. That’s better numbers on that kind of quantity than anyone we’ve had in years. We shot 35% from 3 last year and we attempted the 2nd fewest shots from deep per game in the league.

    The Klay swing on odds in our favor looks like it has to do with the Warriors being all in on offering PG a 4 year max. If that’s the length of contract for George, we’re out.

    Agree. Only way we entertain Booker is to trade depth pieces, prospects and picks for him. You make that move to win, not stay the same with different players. I wouldn’t give up Paolo, Franz or Suggs for Booker.

    We’re the new Vegas odds favorite to land Klay, and Paolo is working out with Lavine.

    There’s a lot of smoke around the Suns trading Durant. Serious question, if they do for the packages I’m seeing, why keep Booker? Book is my 1 if he somehow becomes available.

    Can’t believe the price is takes to get like a tier 3 star in this league, and even that might be generous for Mikal. I’m hoping our fun starts tonight. I’m very much on the side of we have to use our assets and cap freedom while we can this off-season. Standing pat tonight and adding another rookie that won’t crack the rotation is the wrong move. We saw a Pacers team that were better than be aggressive with trades and FA and make the conference finals. We can’t just sit and wait to grow this thing in house, it’s time for our Horace Grant signing. Go get PG or trade for Sexton, Garland, Dejounte or Trae.

    I’m probably just overreacting to the Monk news, but I’m really worried that we’re not gonna do much and I’m gonna get my hopes up to be underwhelmed again. We have a ton of cap space this year, and with extensions for Franz and Suggs this year and Paolo next year we won’t have this flexibility again any time soon. Over pay Klay, or over pay PG. If we go through this off-season just to re-sign Harris, draft someone who won’t play at 18 and stand pat I’ll be extremely disappointed.

    Apparently we’re now tied with the Warriors for most likely to sign Klay Thompson according to Vegas gambling odds. Also the Paul George rumors are heating up again today… the next 2 weeks can’t go by fast enough!

    *fart noise* At least those awful playoffs are over and the Celtics fully get an asterisk for easiest path to a ‘ship in NBA history (I know, I know, I’m a hater) More importantly, the dead period is over and this off-season is about to get fun. We can start negotiating with all our guys that are expired as of today, Fultz, Moe, Joe, Gary, Chuma… Draft is June 26, June 30th is start of free agency, July 1st Franz and Suggs are extension eligible. Let’s gooo!

    Imagine if we made a Siakam like trade at the deadline instead of twiddling our thumbs. We’d probably still be playing :). Good on Indy for taking advantage, but man they’ve had a lot of luck with other teams injuries to get to where they’re at. Bucks without Giannis and Lillard. Knicks with like nobody healthy. Minnesota is different. Incredible build and they’re gonna be contenders for a long time. I’m hoping we take note of the risks they’ve taken with vets to fill weaknesses and how it could benefit a young core.

    yeah, if Houstan is in our 10 man rotation next year without injuries happening, something went horribly wrong. I also don’t see the fit of BI on this team. We dont need another ball dominant forward

    Whole lot of dirty laundry coming out on the Cavs literally right after they get eliminated lol. Allen didn’t get an injection to play through pain. Mitchell disappointed in the playoff readiness of his teammates. Garland will demand out if Mitchell isn’t traded. Bickerstaff on the hot seat with his job under review… damn lol

    Man, screw the Cavs. Mitchell plays like prime Jordan against us and then *****es out with a sore calf in a 2-1 series where they have momentum to make it a series. Boston has the easiest path to the Finals possibly ever.

    Only way I want Ingles back is to decline his option and sign him to the vet min. I think we can do better than the current version of Ingles in our rotation next year, would love him back for cheap as a locker room vet and injury depth, but don’t want him back at $11 million

    I don’t see any way Boston doesn’t win the East. The Knicks are doing a hell of a job taking advantage of the easy schedule they’ve been granted, but all these guys playing big minutes for them every night are gonna lose gas. I’m pulling hard for the Wolves. It’d be about time one of us from the 89 expansion wins it all!

    Could you guys imagine the size of our new death lineup potential?! George/Franz/Paolo/JI/WCJ and Suggs/George/Franz/Paolo/JI lineups would both be top defensive units in the league.

    I think we need to get away from thinking of our roster as traditional, position-based basketball. We just need a guy that can shoot, defend and handle the ball to compliment our current pieces. It’d help if he can takeover if others are struggling and he can create in the half court. I think Paul George is at the top of my list this summer as our 5th starter taking the Harris minutes and splitting ball handling duty with Franz and Paolo, as long as it’s a short term deal, like 2 year with a player option or something like that.
