Don't get me wrong - I'm not thrilled Ellington will be getting these minutes - but I like the pairing of him with Saban Lee. Someone who knows his role, can play off Lee's dribble penetration, can stretch the floor offensively. Now if we can get Lee to shoot when he's open...

I still can't get over how bad the Raptors are this year. I mean having your home displaced so you have to live in Tampa - my condolences - but that doesn't seem like enough to explain this carnage.

Considering the pieces they lost and the man games they lost due to Covid, their record makes sense. Quite frankly I hope they finish with the 2nd worst record behind us.

They won't be able to fall all the way down to 2nd and even if they do through the lottery it won't change the position of the 2nd rounder.

I absolutely love when our 2 best players in a quarter are both rookies, I am really digging our youth they play so hard.

If has any kind of outside shot hes a potential all star imo, hes an excellent defender, can handle the rock and can finish at the rim.

I do not like Curtis Joseph minutes yet, I’d rather see any other Pistons getting that time. He comes across like a slower less useful Josh Jackson and I’d prefer to see if Josh can get over his myopic drives and develops seeing the floor better with that time.

Im hoping that as soon as Hayes is back cojo is glued to the bench. I think hes only getting minutes right now because dsj is injured.

Just a heads up April 9th is the last day a player can be cut and still elligible for a playoff team if picked up, I wouldn't be suprised to see both Ellington and Cojo gone.
