Wing Defender in the Buyout/Trade Market?

Did a deep dive... sold that Brown would be an improvement over Niang. Don't think Brown's shooting is a big outlier this year. I think it is likely regular rotation spots.

He gets more rebounds, steals, assists, blocks and does it while committing less turnovers. He's likely a better overall defender than Georges and I think he be more likely to be able to perform during the playoffs.

I think we could just take him with our trade exception which saves Houston some money, offer a little cash in the deal... $1M or $2M, and a second round pick. I don't think they would get more than that. Cash is very important to Tillman... that part of the deal may be enough along with some phony draft asset.

Second round pick watch... we have GS second next year and our 2026 second we can offer. Those cupboards are a little bare. If Houston wanted a prospect I'd consider sending Hughes... if they wanted Morgan I'd probably be okay with that but with Dok out we'd have no other bigs.

I think he is really gettable... every report seems to think they are trying to tear things down right now. Houston has strong incentive to tank... their pick can go to OKC in the most complicated swap you've ever seen... basically OKC will get either Miami's first or Houston's first this year.... but it is top 4 protected. So they absolutely need to get to the bottom of the league and stay there.
He is a good player but he is 6'5. We don't need another short wing we have too many already (Don, Clarkson, Oni, Royce). We need a long, athletic wing. Our big wings lacking athleticism (Joe, Bogey, Niang). That's why we are having a hard time against teams that have dynamic big wings. I think we need a guy at least 6'7.

Funny thing on this is that i don't even think that Bogey really lacks athleticism at all. He's just simply an average-ish guy on that end. Had he Ingles footwork and reading of the game, he'd be really good (but then he also would cost some more money)

There will be some gems getting waived over the next few weeks. The question is whether or not they fit our system and needs.

When does the Houston fire sale begin? Asking for a friend...

Reports are we are interested in Tucker which I would love. Unfortunately we have zero contracts that would match his contract or make sense to use in a trade for him.
