I think they want to see who has the fight in them. The reality is Thibodeau doesn’t usually run big rotations. Maybe he’ll go 10 because it is a young team. Maybe.

we tend to overrate these players, Dotson at best is an end of the bench cheerleader and a human victory cigar.

Dennis Smith was getting hyped for a break out 2019 and folded the minute Elfrid Payton was signed. A true starter wouldn't let Elfrid Payton take that job. Every time Dennis Smith Jr has a few dud games in a row we hear about how his back hurts. Chronic back issues are either more proof he's not a starting point guard or an excuse for not that good.

i feel like everyone's silver lining was that the deals were structured so that we could do what we just did
That was always the point behind the signings. Flexibility.

Yep. In theory some of those guys could have broken out and turned into deadline trade bait. Unfortunately, no development. No game plan. No team identity.
I dunno.

I meant Frank only. DSjr has no trade value and had a couple of setbacks under Fitzuck. Hopefully Thibbs and coaching staff can get around him.

I hope we resign him. Not sure why they let all of the bigs go.

Because they all sucked but Wooten was a gem I thought. I just think rose knows nothing about him or cares.

I think they wanted the cap space to make some sort of splash in free agency but that has been a dud so far. I hope they waived Wooten to give his 2 way spot to Myles Powell and will just sign him to an NBA roster spot contract.

How can the draft go so great and free agency go so horrible?!?!?

Wooten gets picked up off waivers by Houston too?!?!?

Next we will announce resigning Taj to a 1 year $25M deal
