Knicks can have Oubre after next season.....

Seems we could have had Uber.
Since we traded Tim Jr. to the Hawks, while Uber went to to WASh and we got Jerian Grant.  But we needed a PG.

Even though that didn't pan out, I thought it was a good move by Phil to pick up a mid round pick and try to get a quality PG.
(Delon Wright was the other PG possibility with that pick).

Knix likely have too many holes to pay a hefty amount for Uber.
We need to splurge on a PG.  But Uber has improved nicely every year.

Looks like Jerian Grant is out of the League this season.
Seems he signed with Qingdao (where the beer is from), a pleasant seaside city.

Tim's streaky.
Bench sniper is the best role for him.
Not worth $20M.
I wouldn't worry about his assists, but would like to see more FT's, which means some drives.  And DAL should try to get him out on the break where he also shines.

Didn't know that.
But Tim has had a variety of leg issues the past few years.
Seems a bad ankle now.

This "5 Prediction" article  on Tim is pretty accurate:
https://thesmokingcuban.com/2019/09/20/dallas-mavericks-2019-tim-hardaway-jr-predictions/
Mentions his injury woes.
Though I'm not sure about the in-season trade prediction.
That one surprised me.

I think Morris has a good deal of value.
A vet who plays hard, with an inside-out game.
SA/Pops wanted him.  He's done pretty well, despite the lack of PG play in NY.
Morris would fit very nicely in POR, UTA, and other spots.

Just a matter of working out a deal.
POR should be tempted by:
Morris, Taj, a PG = Simons, Whiteside, 1st rounder. 

Taj fills in until Nurk returns.
Morris starts at PF -- they've been starting Zonja and using Rod Hood there a fair amount -- until Zach returns.

Come playoffs:
Lillard - ex Knick PG (let's say Elf)
McCol - Bazemore
Morris - Hood 
Zach - (Morris) - Zonja
Nurkic - Taj

That's a pretty deep talented team.
Would cost us 3 vets to get pup Simons and a late 1st round pick.
Whiteside an ending deal.

And there can be other deals out there.
Other options.

As for Morris - he will likely stay if we offer the most, so if we LIKE HIM, fuck - keep the guy and offer the most.
