Memphis is cleaning up
Gets rid of the bum Crowder.  Solid vet Solon Hill also in the deal

Not even his own team wanted Crowder anymore.

Picked up Jae in fantasy
Had dropped Elfrid after his suspension and a few low stat outings - ouch.  RJ long gone so he should pick it up nicely  :)

Analysts last night made me barf, fawning over the aggressive but lost Barrett when he was 4-9 first half (finished 5-16)

22, 10 and 5 for Fultz last night.  0 turnovers, couple of swipes.  Think maybe we should have been interested when Magic nabbed him?

Our two legit starters -- MaMo & Randle both averaged 32 mins.   Even rook RJB is at 30.
Elf 27.
I think the issue has been finding guys capable of good play over significant minutes.  So I think we get FVV, we'd ride him.  Especially if Thibs is our new coach. 


Hey,  I was willing to toss Mitch in for Tangelo.   Fit and role are a big part of NBA success.   I think Kerr just said as much with regard to Uncle Wiggy.

Like when I lamented we didn't trade for Lowry and some folks countered he might not have become an all-star as a Knick.

I think van Fred has a good deal of that Lowry toughness and grinding away.

Dwayne Casey

Or

Mike Woodson

Winner

Or

Loser

Casey helped Lowry take the next step. 

And was surrounded with winning talent and a visionary front office.

Knicks?  Phil would've traded him for #2 picks after Kyle refused to run the triangle. 

PS: DOLAN himself nixed the trade after getting fist fucked by MU on the Melo and Bargnani trades.

Elf made a 3; so did Randle. 2-5 combined.  Rest of the Knix 1-18.  We need shooters.

Portis only Knick with a game + ... but he had 3 turns in 15 mins and self-exited by throwing the ball at Napier for no reason.   Maybe Wiz don't go on their big 4Q run if the great Bobby P stuck around.   At least he could hoist the 3's MoHark took (not his game).

I didn't realize Hark was shooting just 57% FT thus year and 61% for his career.   Like 3's,  he takes few of them, but another bad FT shooter is sort of embarrassing.

Your 3 and D wet dream?

FucK Mo....

Oh, nevermind. 

Seems like a good kid.  And and a committed defender.

Otherwise....

MoHawk isn't a 3 point shooter.

If he were,  he'd still be in POR.   But he's still a good role player.

A good role player who can't shoot 3s.

Is that what we got for Marcus?

Well, Hark & a circa #28 pick. I still contend we could have gotten a better return with a better FO.  But hopefully we can resign MoHa for around $7M.  Thus adding a solid player at a good rate.  MoHawk was starting on an elite Lac team.

Hark started 38/50 games he played for the Clips averaging 23 mins  PatPat 18/45 but just 12 mins per.  But they also have JaMike Green, averaging 20mpg.   Like us the Clips loaded up on PF's last Summer.

JaMike & Pat are solid 3 point shooters.   Hark the best defender of the trio.

Its just too bad we added a player at the same spot as Randle.  That's one of the issues with Randle,  he's monopositional.  Hark can play some SF.  But then between Hark-Randle-Taj/Mitch you have poor to negligible 3 point shooting.   And that's compounded by Elf/Franc/Smith.

So while Hark is a solid player I'd like to keep around -- something like a 26 year old combo F version of Taj -- he's not a great fit for our roster.   So we likely won't bid too high to retain him,  and might prefer ghr cap space.

DeAndre Jordan, another survivor of Mills' KP trade, wonders aloud as to how cheap the rent must be in Westchester.

Mr. Dolan.

You hired a branding specialist,  who turned out to be the latest in a string of lightweights. 

Rose?

Want to attract top free agents?

If I was making 20 million dollars a year, I might very well like to get a hip Manhattan apartment in a building with a gym.  I might not like to commute one hour to and one hour from our Westchester County practice facility, preferring to use those two hours to, oh, I don't know, play with my kids...TAKE A FUCKING NAP before game time at the Garden.

I mean....DUH.

What's the status with Duke Ellington $8M and Taj $9.4M for next year.   Are those fully guaranteed (less common than before).

I know Randle 2 years out only has a $4M guarantee on his circa $20M.  Some contract versatility.

I'd be fine having Taj back.   Ell isn't needed.

Motherfucker.

Nice to see the Clippers dropping games. The more the merrier.

Seeing Yussuf should be fun.

Harkless has hit over .350 from three 4 of his last five seasons including his Clips stint. He’s done that for half his career, including .415 on 2 attempts per in his third year in Portland. While Morris has never dipped quite as low in percentages as Harkless, he’s never hit like he did for us until this year. Morris is by all means a better 3pt shooter at this stage than Harkless, but I still don’t mind Harkless shooting 3’s if he gets good looks.

Historically he shoots it better than Randle, our PG’s and any of our Yute except Dotson and Trier.

It just goes to show how much we need outside shooting generally. Harkless as a non-shooter is being overstated.

Very enlightening, as usual.
