Nice, bring him home. Hopefully he has matured a bit because he has the talent.

Okay, now we're talking.

Of course need to see the deets of the contract.

I like this move. This is the type of player I like going after. Young has been a bust so far but maybe just maybe he turns it around.
Rebuild plz

This isn’t a center. Not the news I was looking for.

This is the kind of signing we should be doing, not throwing away 30 million on centers that struggle to average double figures.

Along with Okafor, another guy who is young and still could be something that needs a chance to play on a bad team to see what he can develop into. 100% the type of signing we should be making. Hopefully its a low amount of money over 3 years with the third year being only partially guaranteed.

Nice, but didn't we just draft Bey?

We pay a lot for the #16 pick to reach and draft Stewart then we trade for Dedmon, Bradley, sign Okafor and Plumlee.

Then we pay even more for the #19 pick to draft Sadiqq Bey, and we have Sekou and we sign Josh Jackson.

At least we do't have money to overpay Josh Jackson and he is a guy everyone here with a brain wanted to take a chance on.

I am not against guys like Josh Jackson and even Okafor but what a (Please Use More Appropriate Word) GM we got.

Agreed, we drafted Bey and still have Seku, SVI and Ariza on the books. I’m not sure that I understand Weaver’s approach here.

At least Snell isn't around anymore to block Bey/Sekou/Jackson.

He’s a flier.

Nothing wrong with taking a flier on a guy. Especially since our wing rotation is pretty barren right now with Luke and Brown gone.

True, the only trade I didn't complain was the Snell for Dedmon trade, I'm happy to see him gone.

Jackson has played on bad teams since he got drafted. He was given tons of playing time and played himself out of it. He's a brick layer and a turnover machine.

I’d be surprised to see Ariza on the roster come the season. I think our center rotation will get shaved too.

This guy is a mess. Makes no sense to me to bring in the solid citizen types and focus on drafting the person and then bring in this guy.
