I didn't know he had the same agent as Oladipo.

It would be silly not to bring him back tbh. He had a good run last year. Not gonna get much better than that for the minimum.

As far as minimum contracts go, this is a great signing

Agree with y’all. The man has an upbeat personality, and he’s a quick cooker. He can sit for days, weeks, or a month, and come off the bench for 10 minutes of energy and defense like he didn’t miss any time. He also plays any role asked of him, is a hard worker and can be thrown at 2-3 positions. Other than his history of back troubles, he’s essentially the best kind of vet minimum signing for a team.

This is a good deal. Love Jakarr on the minimum. Great energy guy.

This signing does take us over the tax. More moves incoming.

So we basically have all our rotation players back on our roster. Up to you now, New Nate and other coaches :D .

I very much like Jakarr, as a 3rd string player, so I hope New Nate plays Warren a lot at the 4 and 2021 is going to be Goga time :D !

It looks like new Nate inherited the same problem with the roster though

Myles
Domas
Warren
Vic
Brogdon
Justin
Aaron
Doug
Lamb
TJM
Goga
Sumner

Twelves guys who all deserves to see meaningful playing time

How does one make that happen?

Bjorkgren also said he believes in using and developing all 12 players on his roster.

“The players will find out early that I’m not afraid to play any of them,” Bjorkgren said. “I don’t there should ever be a set rotation and this is how we’re going to play, these are the certain guys. I think every game is different. Every game will get different circumstances. Sometimes you play big, sometimes you play small, sometimes those are the things that Kevin talked about early that you have to go through during the course of the regular season so when it comes playoffs, you are not doing something for the very first time that you have never done before.”

That's something to look forward to

But I'll still feel better if they consolidated the roster down to 10 or 11 at least, inclusive of Jakarr

Jakarr is being wasted a bit being the 13th man, but that's a good luxury to have

It's good to have Sampson back if we need to slaughter any Philistines I'm sure he'll come in handy! I would personally like to have another Vet PF for the roster but it looks like with Lecque and Stanley we might be out of room, both roster spots and cap space.
