So who’s left we could get at the minimum...

Shaq- I think he gets more but good god if he goes for the min it’s a bargain. Have all 18 of our GMs call email and text him all day until he submits.

Rodney Mcgruder- got waived... has struggled with injuries but kinda that smaller in between wing that could guard some of the faster guys maybe. In Miami he pretended to be a pg for a bit and was great at throwing lob..

Wes Iwundu- he is a person who plays basketball.

GR3 - at the minimum I think he goes somewhere else... likely GS. Who knows.

Jeff Green - it’s a reunion tour bitches!

Oh... how about the most flaccid sign and trade ever... Niang and NWG for Shaq so we can give him 3m or so... send a second... or a first (ain’t like we using them all that well).

Fill out the rest of the roster with undrafted rookies to avoid the hard cap.

This is the kind of out of the box thinking that will someday get me into the stable of GMs we have.

The issue is getting someone who wants to fit into the role we have available at this point. Tony Jones was saying that the Jazz were interested in KDunn but that the role they were offering him wasn’t enough. Someone commented on 12 min a night isn’t much and he laughed and said minus 4 of those.

Point is whoever we get is looking at maybe 8-10 min of playtime which isn’t much. There just aren’t many minutes left after your core 8.

This kind of goes with my whole point. We’re surrendering perimeter D. It doesn’t matter who we sign — there aren’t minutes. The only meaningful perimeter upgrade is if Mike is out of the rotation and his minutes go to a defender. And obviously that’s not happening. So any defensive addition is only an addition on paper. They won’t be on the floor when it counts. Unless it’s over off Redwood Rd.

Or we could look at upgrading Royce, but again they’re not going to do that. That concept is too out-of-the-box.

Yep, agreed. There aren't minutes to be had. There is (was) no one available out there that would be taking minutes from Mitchell, Ingles, Royce, Clarkson, or Bojan. They all serve key roles on what we have going.

It all comes down to Conley. Jazz seem to have decided that there's no one worth getting over Conley (combined with his coming off the books next year). Many of the loudest voices on here disagree. Guess we'll see how it turns out.

If it turns out Conley isn't the fit this year, I think the cleanest possible swap is for Otto Porter. But I understand, given the injury history, why the Jazz aren't inclined to press on that one. Who knows whether the Bulls are interested either. Maybe possibly a bit more so with Patrick Williams? Could be a trade deadline issue again?
