only one year left on Kawhi and Paul George's contracts. Clippers could find themselves at the bottom of the league for a while with no chance to rebuild after all these picks being traded away.

Here's the thing about that ; im one of the rare few who believe the hobos will re-sign both those bozos to a MAX ALBATROSS deals in 2021 and theyll eventually become the next cp3/wall/Westbrook contracts theyll be desperate to move.

Did Bogdan mess up the Bucks plan or did the Kings messed up the Bucks plan by not running it by Bogdan that he was getting traded before he had elected to op in or out of his contract?


Either way it's good. Especially now that Bogdan is being linked to us.

I’m hoping Rob steals Adams before he goes to the Pelicans. Can we offer them Harrell and JMG?

I don't think we really need Marc at this point... I'd rather give the rest of our Bigs money to Cousins and let him play his way back slowly behind McGee and Harrell...

Harrell is not a 5. If we are playing a small ball line up with AD and Harrell, AD will be guarding opposing 5.
So, we basically have Mcgee as our 5 now given that AD does not want to play the center position

I honestly think there is some lopsided trade this offseason, e.g. the kelly oubre trade and the Adams trade. Mainly due to financial reasons?

I know Harrell is not a 5, but Cousins would still play behind him in the rotation, because Ad would be sliding to the 5 when Harrell was in, and Harrell is obviously going to get decent minutes.

AD doesn't like playing the 5 a lot.
I guess AD plays 30 mins a game this season. The remaining 18 mins goes to Harrell.
We can see AD playing center for some short stretches due to match up problems, approximately 7-10 mins a game on average?
So Harrell will play around 25-28 mins a game. And, I see him getting minutes against bigger wings too esp if we somehow have a 3-pt shooting center in the squad.
We are still thin at the center position with Mcgee plus Cousins in the fold.
Mcgee has shown that he is useless in the postseason. Cousins condition and health is still uncertain. Got to work his way back slowly.
We have to get 1 more center who is usable in the playoffs. With Harrell signed using MLE, Ibaka is out of the picture unless for a sign and trade deal which aimed on getting Bodgan

Biyombo, TT, Harry Giles, Marc Gasol, WCS, Noel, Zizic, Favors and Gibson are all still available for grabs

Avery gone
Rondo gone
Green gone
Dwight gone

We are definitely missing a good chunk of our original identity.

Caruso stepped up and took Avery's place and then some... He's also got a bit of Rondo there too...
We got Schroeder, who's got attitude and a bit of dog in him too, and can absolutely light it up
And Wes Mathews, and between the 2 of them that's a lot more than what green brought to the table...
We got Harrell... Who is like a Modern NBA version of Dwight and will matchup much better with the way the league is now... He's a dog too...
THT is ready to get some real minutes too...

It's a different identity for sure, and we're going to miss the hell out of Rondo's ability to run the offense... But I think we improved across the board...

GB downplaying our offseason. They're saying they're less scared of us this season than last season because we lost Dwight, Rondo, and Avery...SMH...LMAO...

I agree with you that the yare upgrades to Dwight and Rondo but Caruso don't have no bit of Rondo's IQ or ability to playmake and Harrell can't be a modern day Dwight because Dwight is one of the highest IQ defensive bigs to ever lace sneakers.

The talent upgrade is there because of the age and fit throughout the season. Honestly Wes for Danny is a wash, Danny has bigger highs and lower lows, but Wes is more steady nightly. Caruso is ready to do a bit of what Bradley did more so than Rondo.

All we really need is one more big. And it could have been Dwight. HE didn't even get a fully guaranteed vet min from Phili, but I do get leaving if you are him. Embid will be out of shape and he will miss games for rest so you will get to start and possibly get paid next summer.
