    Brantley is bought in.



    I like Oni more in terms of fit. And G-League stats can be misleading for role players.

    At the end of the day you're talking about 8 guys that had little or no NBA buzz 6 months ago. You could probably find a dozen mock drafts that didn't even have Oni, Brantley or JWF being drafted.

    If one of these 8 turns out to have a productive pro career then I'd call the entire process a success.

    This thread is made from Brantley love, and that warms my soul.

    Jarrell is a beast in heat, and when the time comes he will make the haters eat every last word.

    He;s only played 13 games so it;s SSS and he's had a few really bad games.

    Roycee Oneale's only G-League game he went 4/17 from the field and 1/9 from 3. Some guys just play worse in the G-League cuz they are role players forced into doing too muchh.

    Oni had some decent games and then stinkers with the Stars.

    I get that he'll be ready soon but to be super honest i'd much rather watch him in garbage time with Morgan and Tucker. Get those three out every game. Forever salty that Oni got the three year deal instead of Brantley.

    I think they misjudged how ready Brantley was to play this season, imo. There was tons of buzz about Oni all offseason/preseason long, and zilch on Brantley. People only started buzzing about Brantley when we saw him playing. At this point I think most people on this forum, and probably in the FO would switch Oni's contract with Brantley if the opportunity presented itself-- especially seeing as Brantley plays a position of need (as you said).

    Except Oni could have been useful against the Pels to try and shut Brandon Ingram down but he was nowhere to be found.

    We can sign Jarrell to the same 3-4 year deal next year and he will be a year closer.

    All of our second round platers are extremely raw. We have seven young players in JWF, NWG, Oni, Tucker, Bradley, Morgan, and Brantley. It might be a heck of a summer league team. They all need to play to grow.

    he’d still be g-leaguing if he had Oni’s contract— just saying that they picked the wrong dude for the 3-yr. this is obvs small scale stuff but I just thought it was interesting to go through all of their low-cost acquisitions and see what’s panned our (and what hasn’t).

    So if you could go back— you’d still give Oni and Brantley the same contracts? I think if you say yes, you’re in the minority.

    if your larger point is Dal, it doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things that’s a different discussion (and that’s a good point, for what it’s worth).

    If I’m not mistaken, the path they’ve taken allows them to control Brantley’s future for as long or even longer. If so, I fail to see the problem. Quite the contrary, in fact.

    Either they believe in him or they are looking for trades, whether he or mudiay or someone else.
