    I’ve seen enough of him through these two preseason games. He doesn’t belong in the G-Lwague, he belongs on the roster.

    Pls discuss. We got a Rolls Royce, now we need the Brentley.

    I want to see more of him, especially shooting. He passes the eye test so far though, and I think he could end up taking Niangs spot in the rotation.

    was just thinking that— I’m done with Niang. Brantley is a better passer & defender

    He reminds me of Wesley Matthews and Paul Millsap. Obviously they are different players, but I like this kid.

    I’m not sure I see how people are leaving him out of the Top 15 on the roster conversations.

    Conley
    Mitchell
    Bogdanovic
    Green
    Gobert


    Exum
    Ingles
    O’Neale
    Niang
    Davis

    Mudiay
    Oni
    Howard
    Brantley
    Bradley



    JWF and NWG can go kick rocks as far as I’m concerned. Kidd vs Howard for that 15th— but Brantley and Oni should be getting 13 and 14.

    Brantley is obviously a better athlete and tougher defender than Niang. Even though he's 6'7", his wide body, length and strength enable him to keep offensive players in front of him and affect them more on drives than Niang. He rebounds more aggressively, and tbh, I like his shot release a bit better than Niang's too.

    What's NWG's contract situation? To me, he's the guy who should be on a two-way or in the G-League to be called up if Exum and Mudiay are hurt.

    It's so obvious!! Brantley needs a statue outside of the arena! After watching him for 2 FULL AND ENTIRE PRESEASON GAMES, it's so obvious who he is better than on offense and defense!!! After all, he scored 3 points in a preseason game against the buck's and played 13 minutes!!!! Wow. I don't know about you, but we need to sign him to multi year contract fast!!!

    Yep, it's way obvious after watching a guy through 2 entire preseason games who he will be in the NBA. The upside of Brantley is so obvious!!! I don't know why nobody else has seen this!!! I mean in 2 preseason games, he's averaging eye popping stats of 3.5 PPG and one of those preseason games was against the leagues defining 36'ers!!! I mean, whoa!!!! When your beating teams like the 36er's and reining down 4 pts on em!!! Wow!!! Lets not cut Niang, let's crucify him just to teach him a lesson!!! And let's scrub the feet, back and balls of the all mighty Gordon Hayward, next time his Celtics visit the Utah Jazz!!! Who want''s to help me with Brentley Statue!!??? What is that nic name going to be???

    What ive seen of him looks better than before he went to Europe, still might be a year away from being a solid player. I think he has a guaranteed deal

    I like Brantley... but I can't take the Niang slander. He's a better passer, ball handler, and shooter than Brantley. He is a limited athlete, but he is a good team defender.

    Brantley has a great physical profile and has a lot of upside, but he ain't there mentally yet. Let him learn the system in the G League... Green, Royce, Bojan can take the majority of the minutes at the 4. Niang can get spot duty if needed for now. You have to have guys that know the system and won't be in the way. Niang's shooting is off, but he shot 40%+ last year... his defense was fine... at times last night he was guarding George Hill... we had some wonky *** lineups.

    I am joining the Church of Brantley but will not turn my back on the House of Georges. After a couple months I think we could integrate Brantley a little more... he has a body type we might need against the Giannis, Siakham types. Would like to see how he does on a power wing that can also shoot like Kawhi.

    Bro, where is that picture of you and Donovan, or you and Georges, or you and whoever it was? Don’t ask questions. Just link it.

    I'm confused... why does the Brantley love mean Georges hate? You can like both guys... in fact I do.
