How in the hell did Vince Cellini and Mike Fratello get demoted from NBA TV and TNT to Cavaliers in the Paint?

There were some encouraging signs in that game but it's really kind of sad that if we trade Hood, that's essentially what our offense will look like before Love gets back.

I do like what I'm seeing from Nance Jr. and I'm more open to moving TT for draft compensation than I was before.
It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

Aside from the game when Wall just decided he wasn't going to try on defense, I thought this was Sexton's best game. Especially from a growth perspective.

Yeah I don't see how grizzlies remain a 500 team either I fully expect them to keep their pick this year.
What concerns me is Cedi not taking the leap he was on course to take this summer.
Sexton and Nance are really the only true core pieces that are untouchable right now imo

I wouldn't trade Cedi unless he wants to get paid serious money once his current contract expires. He's a good role player. High energy, good defender, runs the floor well and can rebound some. He's just not going to be an all star unless he develops a reliable outside shot. That's okay. He has a true SF frame and is athletic enough to bother 95% of the players in the league. That's difficult to come by.

If we hit on a true No. 1 scoring option in the draft, and Love can stay healthy, then players like Sexton and Cedi won't have to press and the ball won't stick the way it does.

All true, just think Cedi had a higher ceiling now not so sure.
