I feel like if the brain trust of the Bucks realgm would run the team we'd do better.

Without Hill we were desperate for a backup PG. yeh it's probably too much but we had to get him. Like this

I get why his skillset, but I don't get why it had to be him at that price. I really don't want to harp too much on it but Trey Burke went for exactly half and he's very similar (imo better).

Who cares. If Giannis stays the picks aren't worth much and if he leaves we"ll be irrelevant 8th seed chasers for many years anyway.


If Giannis stays, it kills the future ability to make trades.

Ugh, he brings something we need off the bench but, was there really no other option out there?
Hope he gets back to his 18/19 percentages

If Giannis stays, it kills the future ability to make trades.

And if Giannis leaves it kills the future period. Would rather have a two time MVP and limited assets for a few years than no MVP at all.

I believe it would not, i've been reading this board for a long time and there is more "wtf" takes than ones that make any sense.

I foolishly thought we might get him for the minimum, or the BAE. So yeah, this is crapola

The head brewer/owner of my local brewery also goes by the name of DJ. I'll probably see him later today, I'll ask him if he has any inside scoops on this.*

*Yeah, I get not all guys known as DJ know every other DJ BUT this guy is ALSO AN AMERICAN so odds are pretty good I can become a deep throat (settle down, twirly) here. :reporter:

I read that Holiday had been playing SG and that was a better fit for him. If thats the case does Aug start at pg or does it not matter with Giannis initiating?

If he bounces back from last season this isn't a bad signing at all. He can bring a lot of what Hill brought offensively.

I believe it would not, i've been reading this board for a long time and there is more "wtf" takes than ones that make any sense.

The board as a whole definitely not but there’s a select group of like 6-10 posters here who working together could and probably would do better.

Probably doesn’t matter but does given them flexibility. If they need defense go Jrue/DDV/Midds/Giannis/Brook. If they need offense, put Augustin at PG, move Jrue to SG.

Augustin can also create for himself off the bench as well which is something they haven’t had since Borgdan, M. left.

Feel like both new signings today are pretty meh. Curious to know how many other teams were offering similar contracts to him.

Feels like a bit of a panic move to me, tbh. He doesn't move the needle for me.
