We had that game but sheesh, Trae range is infinite,  That dude can chuck it from under his basket and still score at the other basket.  Dude was unconscious.

TRAE makes me laugh.

He gets a little wild (so does Luka) when he [they] takes cazzy chances. 

But he is so slippery, has such a deceptive first step, is so elusive and has balls of some advanced space age polymer.  Every time he teased that stepback and launched a four pointer my head exploded.  DAMN.  As for his defense?  Please.  Very young, very slight; body still maturing.  His court vision is exquisite. He gets his team mates makeable shots in rhythm.  And I mean getting to the FT Line 16 times.  That's winning basketball.

Sometimes the best defense is a good offense.  THEY WON, NO?

Trae was Gigi Bryant's favorite player.

Let that sink in.

We’ll have Bird rights to Harkless. I think we may also have them for Dotson since his rookie deal ran 3 years.


We will drop Harkless for the same reason Clippers did.  Bullock does more.

I like the idea of Frank starting at the 2 next year

(Elfrid), (Dennis), FA addition
Frank, drafted player, (Damyean)
Barrett, Bullock, Knox
Randle. (Knox), (Portis). FA
Robinson, Randle, drafted player, (Portis) (Taj)

And 70% of the league consists of backups who aren't worth $15M.


Have you ever actually been educated?

Do you know what opportunity cost is?

You would be wise to never again use the word "worth" on this forum

Oh, and look at the 3PT, 3-11. He was just in a zone yesterday.

Bobby just turned 25. He has a nice base of skills and ability along with a lot of room to improve.


He's a scorer.  Scorers get paid.

Bobby is getting paid and I wouldn’t be surprised if we pick up his option next year.

Bullock will be back. He’s a steal on his current contract. He is a wing while Harkless is a swing forward.

Why don’t we see how Harkless performs and meshes with the team before we decide his fate.

Fultz a tidy 13 and 8, no turnovers, 3 steals.

Magic stay 2 ahead of WASH in loss column

Wondering who we are targeting if we have a max to offer.

If we keep Bobby and try to add MM, that big $$ roster slot may go by the board

Looks like we are at about 80 mil if we keep Portis and Bullock and Payton, renounce Taj, Ellington, Harkless. Trier and Dotson (Possible re-signs of Hark and/or Dot via their Bird rights after we spend the other 40, as Fac stated).  If Marcus gets 20 there is then no max slot left.

You mean if he, like, figures out how to shoot much better?

Because we're seeing that Payton can do his thing, but he needs guys who can reliably put the ball in the hoop. 

That hasn't been Frank.

That’s about all Frank needs to add to hold it down at shooting guard. Now that he’s in a normal functional system and has Ellington and Bullock as examples of guys who pay most of their checks offensively off catch-and-shoot, we should hopefully see some improvement.

I’m also more than happy with his minutes at the point recently.

I’m curious to see how RJ stacks up with Harkless physically. RJ might not be ready to play regular small forward.

Bullock is notoriously inconsistent. Like Portis and Elf.   Which is why these cats get shuffled around.   And not surprisingly all our yute are very up and down.   

A guy like Taj, Hark, to a lesser extent Randle you know what you are getting every night. 

Bullock and Hark are different players at different positions who do different things.   Hark is not flashy and doesn't put up a lot of numbers (which is why he has been moved),  but is solid and a good team player.

Kidd has many techniques for not engaging in direct/useful discussion.   A little anger and polite Shut Up is perhaps a new one.   Though maybe just a variation of his at times condescension and frequent lack of engagement.

Here's a question: why was there there talk of buying out Portis? 

Because he's a great fit,  a keeper,  worth $15M next year.
