Tim was literally in SLC. If you think we are going to be buyers then I think you are hearing what you want. If we had first round offers on our guys we’d take them… we will be opportunistic on adding actual players but everything we are doing is with an eye towards 2-3 years down the road. That doesn’t say “buyer” to me.
You didnt read what I posted. I didnt proclaim anything... I asked the question, and even repeated that by saying "the signs are mixed". You are the one with stronger conviction, and picking the expert you choose to trust here. So you are the one hearing what you want.
The best way to upgrade our roster right now is to get a PF who can guard perimeter and at least shoot corner 3s. We are connected to every single player of that type who is potentially cheap enough to just switch pieces around without giving up assets. Even Jalen McDaniels, whose contract is expiring this year. And DFS, who is 29 years old. Mavs were not interested in any of our guys, but suddenly Beasley is on their radar.
Why are we pushing for that archtype right now when we could easily address it in the draft as you said?
