Not sure where this belongs but Houston apparently killed it in the draft with Green, Sengun, and Christopher. Playing well in SL paired with Khyri Thomas and Kenyon Martin Jr.

Edit: Forgot to mention Garuba.

Good luck to him. 2 Pacers notes regarding this:
1) Since we’re out of the original timeline of Monta’s contract, we would not receive any right of set-off to reduce his cap hit if he does sign somewhere this season, however unlikely that is
2) Since his waived contract is still stretched on our books this year, we legally cannot sign him this year, which I’m sure breaks no one’s heart here… :wink:

:D

One of the few players I don't believe can surprise us in a good way :D .
Impressive with his words, far less impressive with his actions.

Caitlin Cooper getting the call up to the big time, with Five Thirty Eight. Well deserved!

Five Thirty Eight is Nate Silver's service. He's a big time statistician (as far as they can be big time, that is, :lol: ), that rose to fame on his accurate election predictions, and eventually licensed his blog to the New York Times, and later sold to ESPN, where it was eventually spun off into an ABC News partnership as it encompasses much more than just sports.

In it's sphere of the world, it might be the largest of its kind. If that makes any sense?

Hollinger casually mentions that Warren could double his salary next year, which might be really tough for the Pacers to do.

Link doesn't seem to be working so not sure of the context, but that seems awfully optimistic. I mean, yeah he could, but even with a weak FA class I don't see someone throwing north of $25 mil at him given his injury history. Worth it if healthy. That's just a big if.

I think he's proven himself to be intriguing enough a player when healthy that some team will take a roll of the dice and throw him a meaty contract

I think I'm in favour of moving on from Warren. Just stash him on the bench and start developing a proper starting 5. All this shuffling players in and out of the starting lineup cannot be good for chemistry. Besides experimenting a little to find what works, I think the team should have look ahead and identify who are the starting 5 long term

Too early to decide TJ’s fate. He comes back stronger I’m for keeping him. If his play is clearly hampered to finish the season then it would be a no brainer to move on.

I hope he gets an opportunity to play adequate minutes to see if he should be in the NBA and not be an emergency substitute for Covid.

The Lakers just do not play defense. It's wild whats happening to a LeBron James led team.

Catchings stepping down from the Fever. She’s had a rough go of it roster wise, especially with her draft picks the last two years.

If I remember properly, they have already released their previous two first round picks. That's not just bad, that's amazingly bad.

Aaron Holiday on his second team now being Aaron for Phoenix 5 points on 2-9 shooting, a rebound, a steal, 3 assists, 2 turnovers for a -12. So glad we moved on to Isiah which is looking like a huge team upgrade.

Here’s to more great FO moves this upcoming draft and season.
