Nope. Dude was brutal. Was sitting across from a young black female executive with the Skyhawks, praying she didn’t hear. She heard.

SMH. Should've been escorted out.

Mason now leads the G League in scoring at 25.1 per game - playing on the winningest team in the league.

Think it's kind of weird he hasn't gotten any playing time with Hill being sidelined for so long. Still don't really understood the two-way eligibility stuff but I assume it might be because they don't want to use it all up?

Be cool if someone finally edited this thread title so we don’t have to constantly weep for the Dragan.

The Herd is adding Justin Patton, which is awesome. Basically the 2nd best developmental center available, behind Bender.

Good signing, the Herd need the size. He's had some big games in the GL... Looked really good on some PnR highlights.

DJ Wilson assigned to the Herd for their game against Grand Rapids in just over an hour. Justin Patton Oshkosh debut. Might this be the post that sparks a change to the thread title? Time will tell.

Really interested to see how Patton does. Very well could be a two-way or even developmental contract next year.

Maybe if his name was Denise instead of Dennis.

Patton was always about staying healthy. If he can finally stay healthy he may still have a decent NBA career.

What's the word on Wilson? Why send him down now? Talent issue or lack of real opportunity on a deep roster?

He probably needs the playing time or he'll implode.

Both. Maybe trying to showcase him to the league a little bit before trying to dump him in the summer.

At this point, he's behind Giannis, Ersan, and Marvin at PF. He's too small to play center in Bud's system. Some people think he isn't an NBA player. I think he'll have a long career as a defensive minded backup PF who can stretch the floor, though that may not be with the Bucks. It will be interesting to see if he's still on the roster next year.

He's the only whipping boy on the roster right now since Sterling Brown put together a couple of nice games before the All-Star break.

Wilson is buried on the Bucks' bench and the Herd have 3 games in 5 nights in Oshkosh. The Bucks sent him down to get some PT at home. Same thing they did with Bender.

I'll be honest, he's intriguing to me as a possible PF option for Minnesota, to learn behind James Johnson for a year. We seem to like going after guys late in their rookie deals buried on deep playoff rosters, so he's one of the names I could see as interesting this summer. Not sure what the Bucks would be asking for though.
