Thank god the Rockets are winning against the Raptors. No one would care if we lose to them this week as long as their losing streak is over.

Why didn't we draft this guy lol. My guy Sadiiq already a lights out shooter while being pretty good on defense, just what we needed.

I like Bey but I’ll take the combo of McDaniels and Bolmaro over him. Bey has had moments but he’s only shooting 40% from the field (38% from 3). Good numbers but not crushing it. I’d probably take McDaniels long term over him.

67/60/100 game on 14 shots

I think it was thinktank recently trying to shun me for suggesting I would have taken S. Bey or Haliburton.

I posted S. Bey I think a few times in the realGm mock thread before he ever got a second vote. I remember someone giving me a plus1 the first time I posted his name though. So I knew there might be at least one other S. Bey supporter and I wasn't alone. Just what the team likely needed to round it out for this season.

I agree Bey doesn't have the ceiling of the other 2 but Mcdaniels/Bolmaro could take years to develop, and are far from guaranteed to be good players. I don't know if they can wait that long if they are building around KAT and Russell. Bey would legitimately be our best wing player right lol and is clearly an NBA caliber guy.

Bey is older but is also inconsistent he has followed some good games with complete stinkers.
Not sure how you can’t see Rubio/McDaniels is better than just having Bey.

Love Vucevic. Love LaVine. Love Patrick Williams. Now I REALLY need to see Ricky traded to the Bulls. That would be so much fun.

What would you want in return now? A pick? Coby White? Marka..
How about they finally complete that trade as a three teamer and send Towns/Dlo/Edwards to Chicago for Vuc, Lav, PW and keep Ricky. Chicago can throw in picks and tpes

Not sure how they have higher ceilings. Bey was just more ready to perform which was one of the reasons I wanted that pick made.

I don’t think Ricky is a good compliment to Lavine. I think they’re looking for a defensive shooter to play PG because Lavine is a ball dominant SG. That’s why they were going after Lonzo Ball who has become one a very good volume shooter and defender.

I'm still **** with or draft selection. I wanted to trade down to select Haliburton or Williams and trade Bey with the other pick. I was one of the few that was pissed when most guys here were licking their balls with the Rubio trade...

It's possible they aren't the best fit you could find, but I think they would get along fine. They do have White developing nicely and he and LaVine have tagged teamed some nice scoring games.

It's going to take me a while to get over all the choices that offseason. I'm not sure Rosas survives the ramifications of it all that long.

It’s nice knowing there are organizations that are as big if not bigger **** shows than the wolves. How did Rosas not go after Christian Wood last summer though ?
