Yikes, GSW waived Livingston.
He only had $2M guaranteed on a $7.6M ending deal.  They stretched that over 3 seasons to squeeze under the tax line.  Guess they don't planning on adding anyone else.  Not sure if they were avoiding the repeater tax or not (I'm guessing Yes).

Livingston was a great bench player during their dynasty run.  He slowed up a fair amount last year.  But a very smart player.

You don't hear much about SACto.
Seems they signed Dedmon walking for 3/$40M.
Ariza for 2/$25M
Rich Holmes 2/$10M
Cory Joe 3/$37M

Seems like a fair amount of money for essentially 4 backups, even if one winds up starting.  They kept the deals short, as is the trend.  And those are solid bench players.

De'Aaron Fox - Corey Joe - Yogi Ferrell   
Buddy Hield   - Bogdan Bogdanovic
Harrison Barnes   - Trevor Ariza  - Troy Williams
Marvin Bagley    -  Rich Holmes - Nemanja Bjelica
Dedmon  - Giles

Well they added depth and vet backups/mentors.
They have to hope their young core of Fox & Friends takes off in the next few years.  Hield has become solid.  Bagley looks potent.
Barnes is Mr. Okay.  A lot is riding on the development of Fox.
They should be able to finish at or above .500 and compete for the 8th spot.  45 W's isn't out of the question.  39-43 last year. West has beefed up, but now SAC has a deep team.


I never understand why Rich Holmes and Ed Davis get so little.
They are solid hard-working Bigs who screen, board, mix it up, while defending and able to score efficiently inside.  Value guys in my book.  Would take either on my team.

Like us, they may have too many guys expecting minutes. Except their guys are better.

I think Bjelica plays more than Chaun. But Harry Barnes needs time at the 4 too. Going to be a squeeze for minutes when everyone's healthy.

The coaching change is odd, but Luke Walton has had good results on non-Lebron teams.

Actually I wasn't sure Bjelica was still there.
Yeah, slot him in at the backup 4.

Rich Holmes might play mostly backup C.
I'm sorta hoping he forces his way into C minutes, and Giles gets lost in the mix, and we pick him up somehow.
In PHX, Holmes seemed like a redundant addition and he demanded minutes.  Guy hustles.  Looks like he got into another crowded rotation.

It's unusual to have a young starting lineup and then fill out a vet bench.  We'll see how it goes.  Depth is always nice, but is does look crowded.

Is Iggy to Mitchell for easy buckets.   Iggy can pass and has an instant rapport with Mitch.

Mitchell's minutes > Braz's minutes >>>>>>>>  Frank's minutes

Frank gotta go back to the French League.  He's french toast.

Feels way too early to talk about Braz's minutes. We've never seen him play against the big boys.

That said, I thought Barrett was moving beautifully last game. Really gave a glimpse of something.

Chico can be mysterious some times. Maybe he refers to this: https://www.nba.com/kings/news/kings-sign-justin-james

But most likely it's this: https://www.sacbee.com/sports/nba/sacramento-kings/article232461697.html

 That was more like it. Maybe they’re not all total busts even for summer leaguers.

Uber a 2/$30M to stay in PHX.
Seems he got a lot on a short deal. 
Think Suns should have tried to start him at less ($12M) and locked him up for longer (4 years).


Celts gave up on Yabusele.  I saw him rampage in China and said he wasn't an NBA player.  I assume somebody will pick him up at the min and he'll languish on somebody's bench.  Maybe he needs to watch Glenn Davis vids.  Or get in better shape.  I don't think he'll get too many 2nd chances, so better pick a landing spot carefully.  Maybe WAS or DET.

BOS opens a roster spot for Tacko Fallguy if they want him.
