Point taken but I would never give Jabari that much credit

Hill will still get spot minutes, but some of his minutes will go to DiVincenzo. That will also give Connaughton a chance to reduce his minutes.

Fully healthy, the Bucks have a solid 9 man rotation. The end of bench fringe players will be get some minutes in case they are needed, but realistically they should only be there in a last resort emergency.

I agree, but being fully healthy might not be realistic. There wasn't a team in the field of 16 that had their full rotation last year. Important to develop depth now.

This is Semis fifth season .He has never been good in any phase. His shooting is consistently mediocre to bad. Comparing him to PJ is blasphemous

They kept showing the play where he got hurt and it was not possible to see where he got hurt. Not a great sign!


AD plays basketball like a premiere league footballer

At the age Semi is, PJ was still terrible, and just playing his first full NBA season after arriving from Europe.

I read the article. It was in between a trade idea and a trade rumor, more like the latter actually.

Simmons for Jrue was the point of discussion.

Intrigued me. I would at least consider this seriously. He is a 3 time All Star.
I get it because he's 6'10" and we need some height and rim protection with Brook out. But it's the intangibles that matter. Just as we found out that Semi while he has some similarities to PJ Tucker is not who you want on your team. Simmons is the guy who is afraid to take the easy shot in the crucial moments, while Jrue is the guy who rips the ball away from the other teams best player in the crucial moments. Plus Simmons is a headcase and would cause locker room trouble. Jrue builds chemistry.
