Here's my problem with tanking this year.  

It's going to be very hard to out tank Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas. We'll be in competition with phoenix, Memphis (lost 15 of last 16), Sacramento, Brooklyn.  Won't be able to hold out Gordon, Isaac, Fournier forever.  

So we end up with the 6th pick and take Jaren Jackson who is basically Clint Capela. Do you really kill a year for Capela? We'd all love Capela, but do you tank for him?

No which is why I don't get it and never a fan of the idea for this season.

We just seem to be backwards in everything we do.

How is he Clint Capela when he shoots 84 percent from the line and can step out for 3s.

Scouts aren't thrilled with his shooting form and doubt his 28% college three point shooting will translate well to the nba. 

But sure.  If Clint Capela shot better from the free throw line he'd be a completely different player :svgsad:

Some call it tanking, I call it increasing value of our players for a better trade. Triple doubles always look good.

 

Hopefully our new management has a plan, let's see.

Those shooting numbers are identical to Myles Turner with more volume

Can you elaborate on why you think this?

Letting vucevic be high usage and losing so we can trade him for players that help us win vs just trying to win

I think he's a better defensive player (foot speed and lateral movement) than Myles Turner and a better offensive rebounder.
