    Over/under on his minutes for 2019-2020?

    In other news, they picked up Donovan’s, too.

    Unless they have an injury he'll see less then 100 minutes this year.

    The Bradley hate/disinterest around here has always perplexed me. He won’t see many minutes this year, but could be a valuable contributor next year.

    I think he's a year away from being a year away. Still Udoh isn't coming back after this season.

    If Udoh has a three point shot, we’d be...

    I agree, from last year to this year the guy looks completely different. He's another Gobert, in the sense that people forgot about him, but when he gets playing time he'll demand minutes. It probably wont be this year, but he will be a solid player in this league.

    Oh, and no, I dont imagine he would be as good as gobert, just using that example

    I think Bradley is talented and I've defended his potential here, but the guy has some awful body language on the court.

    I've seen so little of Bradley I have no opinion of him. I hope he can have a few solid minutes this season.

    It’s not hate for me at all. I just thought it was a low upside pick because of position depth and our roster construction.

    I think I understand what they were going for... talented big with good size could be a value if the hate has gotten me too far on drafting bigs. There were other guys I liked that turned out to be good there were some that were trash. Once we signed Ekpe it was going to be almost impossible for him to log any minutes. So we ended up taking a guy that might contribute next year... maybe. With the market for bigs we might get ekpe back at the minimum.

    I think it was a miss but no harm in continuing the development. I think he could be a 10 minute a night guy this year and not kill us. When healthy he will be with the stats.

    I think Royce more than makes up for the TB drafted asset depreciation. I think Tony could be a Jonas Valanciunas type player if he developed and hit his ceiling.

    He did not show great hustle getting back on defense so far. I love players that play hard.

    He's going to be a rotational player next year. I think we found ourselves a decent back up.

    That’s the problem for me I guess... quality backup centers are easy to find and cheap... didn’t want to burn a first to acquire one. They may have thought there was more there... I’m not a fan of the pick but it is more of just a difference of opinion and not a criticism if that makes sense.

    Bro, consider yourself blessed if you can find a backup center with a first. Everybody acting like a first could land you a starting quality stretch four or something.

    I think this is Favors last year with us so hopefully he can play good backup C minutes.

    K... the upside was a backup center... we found ekpe with a 2/6 deal... guys like Ed Davis are around every year and are cheap AF... Trevor Booker is in China for hells sakes. Backup bigs are everywhere.

    My problem was finding a guy that is a decent backup in 2-3 years is a poor use of a pick imo. No guarantee you find a wing or stretch 4 or a starter quality player but I’d want to take a slightly bigger swing than what we did.

    We also don’t know that he’s a quality backup player next year and it’s likely ekpe is better than he is this year and next. Ekpe might even be cheaper next year.

    Again it wasn’t like I was pissed or think we are dumb but it was a definite difference of opinion.

    SOB... I was like why @infection tryin to fight me right now.

    I was literally gonna say “bro had we taken a wing or guard that could contribute we could have traded our first this year for Niko”.

    I need caffeine... I’ll get there faster.

    My summation of a particular contingent of JFC:

    - Willing to blow a first on a third string big man.
    - Unwilling to exchange a first for a starter.

    'But, but... there's no evidence that they would have traded us a starter for a first!!1'
