And Bullock is a poor mans Oubre?
Wiggins > Oubre > Bullock
Just looking for realistic talent upgrades. I totally get that there are better players. Sometimes you have to take a chance on guys. He seems like an interesting option.
Yeah I agree here.
I think folks are still trying to get too perfect. They want Bullock's supposed good guy personality and role playing skillset merged into the uptick in Oubre's physical and overall basketball talent. And if they can't have that they would rather just sit on their hands waiting for that unicorn to drop.
As I've said before (on the NBNF podcast), folks need to stop being so worried about change and the unknown. That's why they have this front office and that's why they have this COY lead coaching staff that has managed to get EVERYONE to play above their talent level and EVERYONE to play as a team.
You gotta put some value in that and expect that they can offset the warts of a guy like Oubre.
Oubre would immediately be the 2nd most talented player on the Knicks team if he were here today. If he can be had for just a little more than MLE and costing the Knicks no assets to get him, you do it unless you can get someone better with that capspace [scans free agent list...squints...squints some more...shakes head roles shoulder shrugs].
