EP is a bad rebounder so it didn't matter.
Looney is your tallest player and wiggins is second. Myers decided to add small guards rather than get a big.
Dubbs have been a bad rebounding team all season, yet it was never addressed.
Wait a minute, we haven't added any players to this roster since the season started other than GP3's ten day contract. No buyouts, no vet minimums, no undrafted rookies or G-league call ups other than GP3's single ten day contract(which we didn't renew).
This isn't Myers doing, this is Lacob calling the season toast and pulling the purse strings tight. We drafted a center #2 so it's not like Myers isn't willing to invest in rebounding. If we go through next season with the same problems with rebounding I'll concede that Myers is overlooking it but under the circumstances it seems pretty clear this situation isn't of his doing.
Edit: Let's not overlook the Oubre signing. He's an excellent rebounder for his position and has increased his rebounding numbers every year so if rebounding was a goal this off season, he was clearly part of the solution.
If Lacob did all this then why does Myers even have a job?
Clearly Myers has made a lot of mistakes here or at least let mistakes be made.
The team Myers built in the off season is a team that has ended up being a .500 team even without its #2 scorer and without two of its three centers. If we were healthy, we would be quite a bit better.
Since then Myers hasn't made any additions despite guys being available and despite having built a team that is still .500 even when crippled by injuries. Clearly Myers knows what he's doing, knows how to build a winning team but unfortunately due to circumstances out of anyone's control his efforts have yielded not a winning record but about a .500 record.
One would think he would add some front court and scoring help but since he hasn't it seems clear to me that he doesn't have the freedom to spend anymore money and somewhat understandably considering where our payroll is at.
If Myers let mistakes be made, it's in not being able to convince Lacob to spend anymore money and I'll give him a pass on that.
