    Minnesota really screwed up when they gave Wiggins the max contract. The message Lowe is trying to send here is that Wiggins’ style of play appears to be too laid back. He very seldomly sprints while on the playing court (roughly just 1.7 minutes out of his career average of 36.2 mpg), which may be interpreted as a lack of fervor or hunger to win. Some might argue that we’re jumping to conclusions here by misinterpreting nothing more than an unconventional approach to the game. However, given that he ranks at the lowest 10 percent of the league — along with 7-footers — makes this fact rather appalling. At just 23 years of age, Wiggins still has more than enough time to make the necessary improvements in his game. However, while most of the technical aspects of basketball can be learned, instilling passion and heart is something that is much more complicated. https://clutchpoints.com/timberwolves-news-tracking-cameras-rank-andrew-wiggins-low-in-running-fast-on-court/

    After seeing Deng and Noah flame out about the same age as Butler is now, I would be leery of signing him to a long term deal. Thibs has a way of burning out his stars.

    yeah, but the Jeff Green comp for AG is a pretty scary thought

    The proposed trade is Vooch to the Lakers for KCP and 2020 and 2021 2nd round picks. The writer doesn't mention KCP can't be traded until December 15, or that he would have to waive his Bird rights. https://clutchpoints.com/perfect-nikola-vucevic-trade-involving-the-lakers/

    The site below ranks players by perimeter defense, interior defense, and total defense. Not surprising to see Augustine ranked the 34th worst and Fournier the 44th worst. Oladipo is ranked the best perimeter defender, and Jonathan Isaac ranked 13th in total defense in limited minutes. http://www.basketballanalyticsbook.com/2018/04/19/anthony-davis-rates-as-the-nbas-best-defender-in-2017-18/

    https://clutchpoints.com/magic-news-aaron-gordon-emulate-championship-culture-warriors-draymond-green/ Others, like Covington of the Philadelphia 76ers, come for the sake of some good hoops action, looking to keep himself in shape. Gordon will have a much larger task in his hands after a breakout season, now having to live up to his four-year, $80 million deal with the Magic and show why he was deserving of that money. If it all goes right, some of that championship mettle might just rub on the 22-year-old.

    Pelton projects us to win 33.6 games this year and finish 11th in the eastern conference. He has Detroit getting the last playoff spot with 39.4 wins. Here's the insider link. http://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/24246576/projected-nba-win-totals-playoff-standings-all-30-teams-2018-19

    If you already have 2 guys on a 2-way and want to convert an Exhibit 10 contract to a 2-way, don't you have to terminate one of the previous 2 way contracts to maintain only 2 at any one time?
