A lot of people got waived today around the league. I would love for us to look at a developmental player like a Malcolm Lee who could play the 2 and be counted on to have young fresh legs night after night.

Haven't heard anyone mention Gary Flowers he's a 6'8 wing and his shot has been falling for the defenders.

wonder if they might be interested in a SF so they can move AK to the 4 while Love is out

Probably, although they could use another SF to provide some relief to AK47 anyway.

OJ Mayo is one of the best defenders in the league, hes a two way player and hes a great passer and playmaker.

Two new names from the recent rash of NBA news both from the WT:

-Casspi wants out of Cleveland. Seems like an Adelman type. This is me assuming he can play at the 3 of course. Maybe he could be part of the larger Varejao deal being kicked around?

-Darius Johnson-Odom got cut by the Lakers. He is a rookie two guard who can straight up stroke. He is undersized, but he is a scorer. I think he might be a nice rookie piece. Hard to find a lot of SG minutes with LAL, but he was looking nice in the D-League, at least for a stretch.

*DJO got cut so Lakers could add a big body with Hill, Dwight, Pau out. Good chance he ends up back there if no one offers him a deal.

Or maybe, just maybe, they can keep AK at the 3 and actually play Derrick Williams 30+ minutes per game. It's just crazy enough to work.

I like it. Give me Dwill. I think we saw a flicker against POR. Lets see what he can do with a few minutes right now.

I'm just trying to think from Adelman's perspective; both our forward spots have missed extensive time these past couple years and though a #2 draftee should be barging his way to a starting spot by now,Williams hasn't been able to fortify himself as a rotation fixture in any capacity.

In the process of getting League Pass (zero Wolves games available here in Australia) - so i'm not in a great position to comment but on D-Will:
- Such a shame that he trimmed down in the offseason given that KLove went down twice this year and the bulk/strength would've helped him @ the 4 spot.

- His boxscores from the past 10 or 11 games have been pretty good (in the minutes available) is there any particular reason why he shouldn't be trusted for more mins? Is he really that bad on D?

Williams is literally the only player on the team shooting a solid percentage from 3. He's shooting 38% from deep, next closest is Malcolm Lee at 33.3%, then Barea at 32.9%.
Thriving on mediocrity since '89.
