    Its been that time for a while (pre-Blake). They should have moved Blake last year when he looked like an MVP... he's been dragging that leg since end of last year now and it doesn't look he will get back to what he once was.

    THIS. At some point when you’re established, you need to cash in on that culture.

    Markets with less distractions and good culture I think help guys with maturity issues... there might be more to it than just maturity. I think the opposite is also a little true... players that can't function in this type of environment might find themselves out of the league.

    They should have for sure. No tanking attitude of teams backfire when you can't draft well and have cap issues and can't even find rotation players off G-League.

    Pretty disappointed by this thread. Total misinformation.
    By the title, I expected some links to quality pron, or a least a few pics of game-time girls.

    Go watch the highlights from his recent games... I just can't imagine what a guy like this could do with a spread floor and good wings.

    I don’t need to watch the highlights. You already know I’m sold.

    He's had some good ones... I don't know if we have what it takes, but they have some limitations on retaining him. I doubt he gets a full MLE offer this summer, but based on the numbers he should... not sure the personality/maturity stuff is all behind him.

    Give them a fake first that converts into two seconds. The way you do it is give them a lotto protected first in the first available draft after the Memphis pick is conveyed... The Memphis pick almost certainly conveys in 2022... so you make the pick convert into two seconds if not conveyed by 2023. They might have some mild interest in Niang or Bradley as youngish cheap rotation players under contract for next year.

    I've kinda wondered what Niang's value would be... I know GM's understand it isn't all numbers, but the 3 point attempt rate and percentage is Bertans-like. If Niang was playing more on a team that wasn't good and had a terrible defense would other teams/GMs be intrigued?

    The deeper I dive the more convinced I am this is one of the most undervalued guys in the league and would make a meaningful difference for us.

    Elite roll man... like 97% percentile as a roll man. Really good spot up guy... 75% percentile. Draws a ton of fouls. Athletic, mobile, long... I don't think he's a defensive ace but I think he's solid enough anchor our second unit defense at a higher level than Ed or TB can. Gives us a five out option with solid defense at the rim.

    JZ needs to give us Wood.

    I don't know that they have the stuff we'd need to get wood, but I'd like them to try real hard.
