Honestly? I'd have probably come of the ledge by now if the Grant/Plumlee deals at least expired when Blake did.

But nope. They sure don't.

I can’t think of a trade that would make me think “Ooh, NOW it all makes sense.”

I’m scared that Troy can think of a few, though.......

I was thinking at least Blake was gone or something when everything was going down. Was at least hoping that albatross contract was coming off our books to help out like a SnT for these Denver players. Denver ain't that dumb clearly looking back now that I'm not in panic mode like I was when Twitter was going wild with signings.

While y'all may not have liked the Pistons moves, it just so happens that people on the general board were asked to predict the five best teams and the five worst and the Pistons have been put on 16/17 people's lists thus far. So what say you to that, naysayers?
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

If they actually get the #1 pick? Absolutely. The NBA now is about position-less basketball, ideally with multiple ball handlers and shot creators. Killian has experience playing off the ball.

6'8" PG can fit on any team. If Hayes turns into Dragic with defense, adding a 6'8" guy who can handle the ball, shoot and play defense.

8-) 8-) 8-) 8-)

If Hayes at 6'5" (young and growing still) is the smallest guy on your team, could be a very high floor for team defense.


Hayes
6'8" PG
Bey
Sekou
Grant

4 guys in the 6'8-6'9" athletic mold.

What an exciting dream!

Looks like Weaver might be able to pick more SF/PF tweeners next season!!!

I’m calling it now, it’s going to be Scottie Barnes (assuming they’re in a position to get him). He might be a more talented version of Patrick Williams.

Jalen Johnson is pretty intriguing, 6'9 SF with really good passing ability

If Barnes slides to ninth, we should get him :wink:
