fair enough. but if he were to return playing as well as he did in the bubble, would you still say we're short a quality starter?
I think bubble Warren is a bit of a fluke, though I'll obviously be very happy if proven wrong
That said, regarding the discussion about the missing star, no I don't think Warren is it, at least not in a vacuum, though I have him in front of LeVert, on the list of probable star players on our roster
Looking at it from another perspective, assuming that we are going to build a team with Domas as one of the corner stones, what four other players would we ideally like to surround him with?
To me, the first and foremost player that we need is a off ball scoring wing, preferably an elite one who can also create his own shots, like Bradley Beal for example. He would be an ideal partner for Domas
We've seen how effective the Domas-McBucket scoring machine is. Swapping Doug out for Beal turbocharges that
With Domas at the 5 and Beal at the 2, we'd need a 3nD ball handler at 1. Maybe something like a Lonzo Ball, if he keeps improving his shot. I would have considered Brogdon here, but he struggles with defending quick guards
For the two forward spots, we'd need a good 3nD player to pair with Domas at the 4, probably someone like a Robert Covington or a PJ Washington (though my assessment of him has cooled off quite considerably after his poor outing against us in the last game)
For the remaining forward spot, we're probably looking for someone who's a bit well rounded, so I'm actually fine with slotting Warren in here
Ideally, we'd still have Goga, the Holiday bros, Sumner, and Brissett off the bench for a pretty solid 10 man roster. Bonus if we also re-sign both TJ and Doug
So trades wise, we're looking at trading:
Question is, how do we do that
While I agree with your thoughts I don’t want Ball (insert puke emoji). I like Washington’s rebounding skills. I would love a 4 who is a big body like Lebron that can rebound and defend, but of course a lot less talented than Lebron to fit our budget. Beal is a stud scorer and I could go for less in that position to be able to afford a 4 and anyone with similar talent of Ball not named Ball.
