He hasn't tried much this season because of his offensive responsibilities and the defensive personnel around him (terrible). I really don't think Beal is worse than Levert, Dinwiddie or Joe Harris level on defense.
Well, here he won't have to shoulder a high usage on offense so he could focus on defense.
The more i think about it the more excited by the idea of adding him. That's some serious offensive fire power.
I'm not worried about depth so much. These other franchises field super teams and somehow manage to get veterans for scraps. I think Marks will be able to pull this off and field a championship level club in 2020-2021
There will be guys like the Morris Twins who will come here for the BAE or maybe even vet min.
Wilson Chandler is still an option. When he isn't overextended and run into the proverbial ground coming back off one of his many perpetual injuries, he's still a great 10 to 20mpg option for 50 to 60 games a season, minutes based randomly on the matchup and where his head and shot is at that night.
Depending on the trade we'd still have Dinwiddie or Prince as salary filler for a much better player as well. Not someone super valuable on paper trade-wise, but similar value to Dinwiddie or Prince respectively. Maybe someone like Otto Porter, or Terrence Ross or Aaron Gordon.
Temple is also a good defender, and again, he's more effective when his minutes are limited and he's not called on every night though.
Ibaka may come here for taxpayer's MLE.
These guys will all likely be out there.
I also love the idea of trying to trade for a guy like Keita Bates-Diop or Jerami Grant from Denver.
How about calling up Detroit on acquiring Luke Kennard?
We should have faith in Marks getting creative and the ring chasers knocking on our door, tbh, this is exciting stuff.
yes to all of this.... especially MKG. bring him home to jersey and reunite him with Kyrie.
