  1. He has a player option, the article didn't state if he was exercising his option to become a FA?
  2. Sometimes you just need quality basketball players regardless if you think they 'fit' like a glove. You aren't trying to complete a PERFECT lego set. Sometimes you create a master piece from random pieces. Sometimes you need specialists in one area or another. You can't have blinders on and be singularly focused.
  3. Parker never defended or shoot the 3...wierd comparison.
  4. Disagree. Aminu played 18 games for Orlando before injury. We need NBA players with talent. Defend, shoot 3s, be active. EVERY single player doesn't HAVE to be DPS. Agreed! That's an easy yes.
  5. Grant is 25 so he fits. If Grant opts out of his $9 mil, how much are you willing to offer. He fills a need at both SF and PF.
  6. Ideally, No....but with the Salary Cap uncertainty because of CV19, I would say, everything is on the table. If the cap remain at $115 or drops to last years $109 for this offseason, we are still in good shape. It's the projections for 2021 that'll be the one to watch. Do you want to tie up too much long term money this offseason on 'a weak FA class' without knowing where the Cap is projected for next offseason also considering extensions for Collins and Trae. It's a juggling act. I think the Hawks are sitting in the ideal position to pounce on the possible financial fallout from other teams. This is the first offseason for Travis Schlenk where FAcy really matters in terms of finding real NBA talent to supplement his young core draftees. We are transitioning from strictly using capspace for assets acquisition.
  7. Question...I know Travis Schlenk said he's not really interested in more 19/20 year olds besides our own 2020 1st, but if there is a possibility that TS decides to acquire another mid-teens pick and if that's the case...who would be that player? Who are the players in that range do you like if it happens.
  8. More @JTB (i think the other comment I referenced was around the trade deadline)
  9. TS says a lot of things, but with CAP uncertainty the way it is, things can change.
  10. TS didn't have to before as we were still in rebuild and asset acquisition mode. It was about using capspace for picks. TS has said for this FAcy 'he's looking for guys stuck on other teams benches' so to me that means the undervalued guys. Korver was a salary dump from the Bulls trade as part of the JoeJohn deal.(I think - and some here didn't think he'd resign with the Hawks).
  11. Who is the best shooter in the draft? In Korver/Harris/Bertans mold?
  12. Do you have a list of guys who fit that Christian Wood mold? Here are some FA PFs in their mid 20s and younger to consider. PFs - Juan Hernangomez(24) (restricted), Dario Saric(26) (restricted), Harry Giles(22), Noah Vonleh (how is he still only 24?), Calen Swanigan(23), our ver own Skal Lab. SFs - Derrick Jones Jr, Josh Jackson, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Stanley Johnson, Bruno Caboclo
  13. I'd be OK with a 1 year $20 million deal. It's going to be interesting to see how players play the uncertainty with cap....short term high dollar or long term low dollar.
  14. Question...I know Travis Schlenk said he's not really interested in more 19/20 year olds besides our own 2020 1st, but is there a possibility that TS decides to acquire another mid-teens pick and if that's the case...who would be that player? Who are the players in that range do you like if it happens. @Spud2nique @NBASupes.
  15. Of this list, which of the top 12 guys can be two position players, play two positions effectively? PG/SG SG/SF SF/PF PF/C
  16. Bertans is a back PF so he's not supplanting Hunter at starting SF and he's not worth $20 million. He tops out at $15 million in a pre-Covid19 cap ($115 mil). Now I would say $12 million. The Wiz already have $103 million on the books for 20/21. Depending on where the cap falls it'll be interesting to see if they're willing to exceed the cap to resign Bertans and fill out the rest of their roster.
  17. Because he isn't available and what the Nets are reportedly offering isn't enough for the Wizards. It's a NY slanted rumor from a NY guy.
  18. I know barber shops have been closed but why is James Harden looking like Grady from Sandford and Son?
