Good news on letting options go

Quickley just replaced Dot

Sorry Woot won't get a shot, but that could be good news for Iggy getting into the rotation

NOW TRADE RANDLE (and maybe Knox)

I could see them possibly resigning Taj + Portis to 1/2 deals from what they were getting.
hoping Ellington + Payton are gone for good.
would have liked to see what Wooten could do? maybe they bring him back if no one picks him up this week?
he was on 2-way so was not being paid much. so they could have just kept him since he's less that vet min.
all this is to make as much cap space as possible but it will all be used up in a few days if not by tonight.
unleash the Iggy!

This is one step closer to not getting Russell Westbrook

Devonte Graham/Ish Smith/Cameron Payne
Dennis Schroder/Damion Lee/Jahmius Ramsey

Can someone help me find the thread last year where people were defending these deals?

Also Randle better be giving thanks this year for that stupid Pills deal cause his ass should have dumped with them

-The Melo era should be celebrated
-Phil Jackson was a good GM
-Randle could be good as a third option

i feel like everyone's silver lining was that the deals were structured so that we could do what we just did

I really like him so not throwing shade, but I do nonetheless have a quip: He can sign in Golden State and take over the Klay Thompson role.

previous staffs never developed any young players. even Mitch is still raw. after 2 seasons the guy should have been playing 30+ mins 15pt/10rb/3blk a game already. but no he's stuck @ 20 min not starting. a better staff would have gotten Frank to be FIBA frank sooner too. that should have happened before he went to FIBA last year and showed what he could do in the right system. etc.......
