I wouldn't get attached to anyone on this roster outside of KAT and DLo.
With the way so many are wanting to draft ball dominant guards with the #1 frp I'm starting to detach from the Dlo/Towns trip too. It's possible they screw this all up with moves and nothing looks better next year. After all the assurances in posts last year and rationalizations for the players they brought in last offseason, I believe next to nil now.
I wouldn't get caught up with what fans want. The FO has been very clear about how they view DLo and KAT as the foundational pieces of the team.
But even a fan favourite like Beasley isn't guaranteed to come back.
You say "fan favourite" like he's not actually good enough or not actually exactly what the team has been saying they want on the roster. If he's a fan favorite already in his short time here, it's because he works hard on the court and he shoots like very few have here. Sure, let's toss that away.
1-3-1 system loaded with wings that can shoot 3s. 40-45 a game chasing the Rockets dream who right now in the playoffs have been throwing up 50+ a game. To get anywhere near having a worthwhile roster for a 1-3-1 5 out offense this team needs as many shooters as they can find and they don't have the luxury of not bringing back someone like Beasley who was a major piece of the trading around deadline time. To even fathom not bringing him back and instead keeping players like Culver who can't hit a FT much less 3s, or Okogie who's best improvement has been increasing his vert and finishing at the rim...or drafting low percentage chuckers, it just boils me over. Why should I believe the team and their stories about what they are building if they let a shooter like Beasley go now? You tell me.
I'm constantly reminded by posters here that they have no recognition of the fact this team has been a loser this long because of not having respectable reliable pressure shooters. Listen to these draft dreams for all these players that can't prove a shot yet. It's the same story year after year. S
Maybe the only way I see someone being foolish enough not finding a way to extend Beasley here is if they absolutely have to use him in a sign/trade to get another "star" here and I use that term loosely as it might be someone like Simmons if not a Booker. But if they get Simmons, they are going to need a Beasley more than ever.
