That pic of DJ should be made a meme and used to taunt Knix/celtics fans

Aside from trolling the Knicks, Baker plays our style of game. He shared the same backcourt with Fred Van Vleet at Wichita State. I’ve always liked his game.

He isn’t very good at anything but he’s very scrappy, plays hard, high IQ. He would’ve probably developed better here than with the Knicks if we initially signed him.

The Nets are like a Chinese restaurant. But instead of putting free mints on the front desk, we put draft picks in the bowl.

Baker is a hustle guy but his advanced metrics make RHJ look like an offensive superstar :lol:

Does a potential Baker signing mean a whole season of GL for Musa? That's what I'd imagine.

I had the 3rd line guys pegged as Pinson/Musa/Chandler/Ellenson/Claxton

(assuming the normal 10 man rotation is Kyrie, Caris, Joe, Rodi, Prince, Din, Allen, Jordan, Temple, Nwaba)

Ron Baker is Kenny Atkinson clone(As a player)

He is not the most skilled but he will outwork just about anyone. Sounds like typical Marks move to continue to grow BK culture.

Baker = this group's Scalabrine. He'll be a hustle guy in practice and otherwise only get in during blowouts.

I would LOVE a Ron Baker signing.

I despised baker on the knicks. scrubby white dude who seem to always make the annoying play, outhustle your guy, stop a run, disrupt things. those are guys you want.

fits the culture, hustles, and could develop into a really solid role guy. hope he signs here. i like him over pinson/musa/temple and those fringe guys if im being honest

Naw, since we offered him a 2-way, he'd only be an insurance player. He'd only see mins if we have a swath of injuries.

If his offer with CSKA is more money, I'm sure he'll go there.

I hope Rodi is bulking up. If Allen or DJ need to sit out a game, I guess he's our 3rd center.

i dont know... i mean does a guy who relies on quickness, speed and shiftiness add wieght on the off chance he needs to play emergency center? or does he focus on what will help him as a starting F?

I think he could in short burst small ball lineups, but I think if one of the 2 feature centers is going to miss some significant time, I'm sure they'd consider calling up Ellenson.

This is why I have been hand wringing over getting a third center on the roster.

are you really advocating for signing Dwight Howard to be our 3rd strong locker room veteran leader now?

Claxton is 3rd string center even if it he's only 220lbs. He could get a bit stronger during the offseason.

Clax is a shot-blocker with good instincts + plays with high BBIQ and motor.

Rodi is a solid perimeter defender and a pest but i don't see him as a center at all. His game is closer to being a guard than a C.
