Looking forward to Dennis for Vucevic any second now.

Recommended Posts

I think Vucevic would be a nice fit on our roster.   He has an expiring contract and He and Lin are the type of players that overachieve.  They will teach this team to overachieve and we may be good next year.   Not win  a second round game good but get to the playoffs good.

We're tanking.

Why in the heyul would we want these rando journeymen coming here Bob Sura-ing up the plan?

That being said, as awful as Slink is, you're probably right.  38-win playoff season coming up.

I would be in support of this.  Vuc is the type of value guy we can unload to playoff team needing a piece at the deadline for picks or prospects.  I like Vuc next to Collins for the time being too.

ORL has been trying to trade this guy for 2 years.  Trading middling expirings like him, as we saw played out twice last trade deadline, is not a slam dunk.

That market has changed drastically.  Expirings don't hold the same value anymore.

I think there are different definitions to tanking.  Or should I say different degrees.   How stacked is next years draft?  I don't think it's too stacked.   Maybe the deal is to try to look better this year and make a splash in free agency next summer.   Schlenk may be able to engage Klay Thompson and make a deal with boogie Cousins. 

Klay and Trae would be perfect together.

If that's his plan, we need to fire him now.  Today.

Crap-wads like Lin and Vic do not make you look better .. to anyone of consequence.  They make you look like a playoff-fodder team ... which isn't appealing to any high-level free agent.  Have the last 10+years taught you nothing, Dies?  C'mon mayne.

No... Not that they make you look like the rockets or anybody...  But they make Collins and Trae look like guys who you want to play with.  Think about it.  Collins already looked good as a rookie, if he can come back with a strong Sophomore year and look good in the playoffs... and if Trae can come in and be the second coming of Steph Curry... people will be singing the tune of Stockton-Malone in Atlanta. 

We will have the cap space.   All we need is the pitch.   How Long will Klay be happy being the 4th wheel in GS?

Where does Boogie Go after this??

I can see us using those expiring deals and a playoff run to take a strong shot at Klay/Boogie. 

Building our own dynasty.

Lol. We aren't making the playoffs with an off injured Lin and a no defense Vuc. 

Stop, please.

Ok, now I know you're not serious.  I'm being punk'd.  Ok, Ashton.  Come on out with the cameras.

I think Young and Collins will look fine on their own.

Travis already said, he's good at the wings and the bigs. He wanted another PG. He said that with Viv. Travis has been pretty upfront since he's been here. I don't know whatelse to say other than I expect Dennis to be the starting PG opening night.

He won't fit. He only fits your Kaman style of bigs you love over the years.

I thought that as well.  But we're paying too much for a 3rd pg.  Do they see Lin as a 1 and part-time 2?

Fixed it for you.

So you forego a first round pick from Denver to get your 3rd string point guard?  That is the same as trading a first for Lin if you plan to hold him.  That would be moronic.  For Schlenk’s sake, there has to be more to this.

I do too, but for another team. You don't trade for Lin if you're keeping Dennis.

You can't trade Dennis. They want an asset for him and no one is willing to do so with the best PG FA coming up next year. If Dennis is traded, it will be during the season but Atlanta has pulled everyone off the market and are only listening to offers moving forward. You guys do realize Lin hasn't even started 5 on 5 yet. He is still recovering from his injury which caused him to miss the entire season last year.

They still want to be able to trade during the season. Flexibility is their goal. Senlenk has literally mentioned this is most of his recent interviews. 

They want to use Dennis and Trae at the same time and Jeremy has been used at the 2 in both Brooklyn and Charlotte as well as HOU

Is Lin healthy to play? No.

Should be ready for training camp. His words.

He won't be. He's not even started 3 on 3 workouts.
