This was the most obvious move possible

Between his FSU ties and clifford, and our need for a bench SG, this was to obvious NOT to happen

He is listed as a G/F but he is a much more of guard.

We still need a legit SF.

I can't imagine this is someone they consider a starter. Just someone Clifford has comfort with.

This went from meh, to decent for me with this tweet. Minimum and a team option is very good for a guy that at least had one decent season under his belt at the age of 25.

Don’t know much about this guy, but he’s young and cheap. Guessing he’ll be the guy replacing Iwundu’s time at the 3. Here’s hoping for a couple trades to encourage the fan base. Because right now, I don’t plan on watching a ton of Magic basketball this year. Just trading Fournier would bring me back though.
You look confused...let me fill you in.

Dwayne Bacon is not a bad signing. Clearly bench mob guy. Correct me if I am wrong, but I do remember a few years back when he was drafted there was some moderate buzz around here about him.

Wasn't he one of the stars at FSU on the team with Jonathan Isaac. Bacon was their primary scorer and Isaac was the defensive specialist on their 2017 team. He used to be a prolific scorer for FSU, right?

Def. think a change of scenery for Bacon could help. Char been a mess since he's been there.
His 18-19 numbers are better than Wes's. He's had to deal with Monk being drafted ahead of him same year I believe. Then their guard rotation this past season.

Just another buy low gamble to try find another rotation player. Gary Clark-ish type of signing to me.

Yes! A Charlotte re-tread.
Now I see why we didn't want to use that 2nd round pick.

This is sad. I watched him a fair bit in his last year at FSU because of Isaac. I hated his game. He played his way out of Charlotte's rotation. He isn't a prospect. This stinks of Clifford. Free agency just opened. Shouldn't we have struck out with at least a dozen guys before we resorted to signing Bacon? How is this better than just snagging someone in the second round or keeping Wes?

We are lowly but surely turning into the Hornets. First Cliff, then MCW and now Bacon.

What's next? Let's return Bismack, or maybe go after MKG. :banghead: :crazy:
