Love Sterling Brown the competitor but Sterling Brown the basketball player just isn't very good, and hasn't gotten any better since his rookie year. Gonna need to find a new bench wing with Pat likely gone after the season.

There are going to be quite a few options on the market too. It all depends on who wants to take a contender's discount. Bucks have to fill Sterling's, Pat's,and Korver's roles. That could be one decent player.

I really like Sterling as well, but I also don't think the development has happened. Looking forward to another project to root for. This is also a "Your team is really good when..." the conversation is around spots 13-15 on the roster.

Love it when he has a wrecking ball yet smooth drive or a 3, but that is outweighed by him looking like he just doesn't belong out there
I assume there is a vet out there that would come here for the min to fill his role: Marco Belinelli, Courtney lee, Goran, etc

Being he's up on his contract it's probably time for a new cheap option instead after this year. But, if Sterling Brown can't crack your rotation you have a pretty good team. There is tons of teams in the league where he'd be getting 20 mins a night and rightfully so. Individually, that's probably what he should want for next year in order to earn a legit paycheck at some point in this league.

Brown seems like a hustle player that had a little bit of success and started thinking he didn't always need to hustle to be effective. He isn't good enough to not be a try hard.

Brown just has no ability to create with the ball in his hands and hasn’t shown any development in that area. Cool with bringing him back on a minimum deal but I’d be happy to see another team pay him more.

Are we happy to bring him back on a minimum? I'm not too sure. I mean he's better than Thanasis & Bender but I'd rather have Matthews or Korver. Even Pat when he came here was kind of more useful. I think we can do better.

We can do better than Brown. If some team wants to give him some cash, fine. He can put up a few stats on a bad team. .
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

Is he better than Bender?

Last year both DJ and Sterling seemed like they were taking a step to being decent rotation players. Then DJ fell off a cliff and we traded for Mirotic. Sterling had a monster chance last post season to get a role on this team and make a lot of money going forward when Brogdon was out and He just face planted in the playoffs. It is tough when you go from starting to out of the rotation in 10 games.

They’ll both have a great opportunity for the next 12 games.

Matthews, and RoLo, Thanasis, and possibly Ersan and DJ.

If we win a championship I could see us bringing most of the vets back on the short turn around to start next season (and maybe the vets want to try back to back), but hopefully we can grab at least one younger player for cheap that’s still improving

Team really needs to get younger. I hope the Billionaires are willing to spend some cash for a first round pick.

As always I hope our end of bench guys get a bit of money from another team, and some more opportunities.

I feel like Detroit is always an option for these players.

Why? Current team is elite for 2 more years assuming you replace Matthews/Korver/Robin with other ring-chasers. If Giannis doesn't resign, then yeah let's go as young as possible.
