Time for Grayson to finally get some decent minutes before the playoffs.
If he was deemed out for the season, we might be able to apply for some sort of an exception. But it doesn't matter; I'm pretty sure the deadline is passed where you can add a player who can be used in the playoffs. Or maybe that was for guys who are bought out then added.Isn't there some kind of injury buyout or something? Basically, if a player is injured most of the season you get money back? Am I smoking?

This. I wish him no ill will and hope he has a speedy recovery. I think people have disappointments that are legitimate and real, and if I felt like I knew Exum on a personal level perhaps would be really distraught, but bad things happen to everyone, and they are happening now all around us to people in our daily interactions, yet we’re generally unaware of. When I blew out my second achilles, I didn’t have an employer dedicating all their resources to my recovery — I had an employer that wanted my *** on the call schedule and making sure I came in for Saturday night. It’s very disappointing, and all of Dante’s work compounds that disappointment, but life is a lot bigger than basketball, and life is a lot bigger than any of our careers.He's a 23-yo multimillionaire who won't be able to play for a couple of months. It sucks for any athlete -whether pro or amateur- to be away from the sport, but it's not like he's got any serious condition threatening his life or like he hasn't faced more severe injuries before. And it's not like his professional future (which goes well beyond his basketball career, however short or long it may be) is in jeopardy either.
There's way too much drama in this thread. Wish the guy a speedy recovery and better luck with injuries in the future, and stop moaning and pointing fingers at whoever doesn't claim to be gutted and heartbroken by this. There are real problems in life (I'm sure Exum will face them too, just not because of a freaking tear on his patellar tendon). It's ridiculous.
He just doesn't know how to play basketball. He lacks the ability to anticipate contact, tries to jump in crowds of 3 people, these are skills you need to learn to survive.Poor bloody kid. No luck except for bad luck, at this point I would say that injuries will ruin his career.
Let's bump this in a few more months and talk about what Randle is getting paid.What bothers me more is that Dante is getting paid more than Randle, who BTW just dropped 45 tonight. I don't blame DL for taking Dante over him in the draft 5 yrs ago, but after all these years, who else now would offer Dante more money than Randle???
The Pelicans lost to the Suns tonight... for the record.What bothers me more is that Dante is getting paid more than Randle, who BTW just dropped 45 tonight. I don't blame DL for taking Dante over him in the draft 5 yrs ago, but after all these years, who else now would offer Dante more money than Randle???
I have said many times that I and no one else knows what the deal was.Have you even tried that trade in the trade machine? Do you have any idea about matching salaries? Also, you have no ****ing clue what the offer was, so don't "think" too hard about this.
