Official Speculation Thread ‘19-'20 II: BIG as F 

Post#1 » by NotACat » Tue Jun 25, 2019 9:00 pm

New Official Speculation Thread just in time for FA, Summer League, and Preseason?

Will we sign a big FA?
Make a big move?
Will we be boisterous regardless?
Will we see an immediate impact with Bamba's new size in the summer league and preseason?
When will we see Fultz play?

All this and more coming up!

Wanted to continue the conversation regarding Bamba's size in recent social media pictures. His arms look huge, we got another picture that included his legs. Wanted to share that and what they looked like last summer.

Knicks love Robinson and he just had a really good rookie year... they aren't going to pay Vuc.

The other thread was locked. So I will explain my stance on Brogdan here:

Brogdan plays on a Bucks team where he's a fourth option on offense and defense. Hence the borderline starter/6th Man comment

His style of play benefits from having a star player in Giannis on the team. The type of player that has opponents gravitate towards him as the threat.

Having that threat on the team will leave to open opportunities for someone of Brogdan's caliber to be effective.

If he's in Orlando, who's the player that presents the best threat on the roster? Vuc? AG? They are both complimentary players. Brogdan would be just another complimentary player amongst other complimentary players on the Magic roster regardless if he starts or not. Plus those numbers he's been making on the Bucks will downsize a bit if he gets with a team like the Magic, who currently lack an alpha player presence right now that demands a lot of attention and threats at the same time.

Brogdan has shown if he's on a team where he has a star player on the roster who draws threats, his job becomes easier to getting his shots, getting his teammates involved, and playing defense.

Vucevic seeking for a 25 + m contract.
Seems fair.

I personally thing Ross should be more of a priority than Vuc. Like someone said in another thread a lot of teams don’t need centers anymore with high usage. I honestly can’t see teams forking over a ton of money for Vuc. I would personally let Vuc test the league out see what other teams are thinking. Once we hear he has a contract in hand if it’s reasonable give him the same or slightly more. Put it on him wether he wants to stay or not.

Vooch is an all-star that was consistent all season long who was more integral to the team winning more games than Ross who is great when he is hot, but not when he is not hot. I love me some Ross, but much of the time he is a black hole on offense who rarely passes and chucks like there is no tomorrow. Fans here utilize the term Black Hole when describing other players, but Ross becomes that at times.

Given how he is trigger -happy and doesn't really pass that well and only looks for his own shots, i highly doubt any serious ,upper echelon team would target him or if they do offer him more than $11-$12M he makes now.
He is career 7,1 ppg playoff performer on 36% FG and negative offensive impact.

For Magic he is pretty much their offensive punch, but no other team is willing to gamble on production of 1 player to carry on whole bench. Even Lou Williams comes off bench with Montrezl Harrell to share offensive duties. Magic? Who was second best scorer off bench for Magic? Mo Bamba on 6,2 ppg?

AWESOME!!!!!

I like em both a lot. Hope we enter the season with them both on our roster. Excited to see Amile in the preseason... hope he is going to be a starter for them and play a primary roll.

I can see Ross commanding a Fournier level contract around $18 mil per. Any more than that, I would look elsewhere.
