Not the PF i was hoping to see but it made way too much sense

Theres just something about his game i personally dont like, its the same reason i hate guys like Lowry, draymond and marcus smart (aka flopping and alot of complaining) but whatever. If nothing else this should help Franz

I definitely didn't think he'd get guaranteed two years. Makes me wonder if the 2nd year is a team option.

Seems to be a very logical signing. Could help Franz integrate to the team/league a little better.

The brothers Wagner are competitive and kind of annoying to play against. I'm glad they are on this team. Not to mention the offensive skill helps as well.

PT will be interesting this season. But we definitely seem to have enough injury insurance at this point at every position.

Magic are definitely doubling down on size when everyone is getting smaller.

Actually Milwaukee played pretty big this year as did Philly and the Lakers - definitely a bit of a dueling trends in the league right now

I like the sighing, he did really good in the Olympics and hopefully that continues with the Magic. He's still young at 24, cheap and brings offense we desperately need. I looked him up yesterday to see if he'd been signed, happy to see him return.

With no trades and assuming Bacon gets waived, here's where we are...

G: Suggs, Anthony, Fultz (for now until he's healthy)
G: Harris, Hampton, Carter-Williams
F: Okeke, Ross
F: Isaac, Wagner, Wagner
C: Carter, Bamba, Lopez

This deal should push Bamba… set an example if you dont live up to the hype.

Mo will surprise more than one next season, Mo and Lopez will push him and make him a better player

Good, liked his play to end the season and in the Olympics.

Once we drafted his brother this was pretty much nailed on, IMO. Good depth piece and should help Franz integrate.

I really like this roster. A lot of flexibility I want to see a good amount of 3 guard lineups with Hampton and maybe even Harris at the 3.

I'd put Franz at SF and move Ross to greener pastures. I prefer the big lineups to the 3 guard ones, but suppose they all have their place. Really would like to see Suggs, Hampton(or Harris), Franz, Chuma, JI.

OR MCW, Harris, Franz, Okeke, JI, both for the train wreck on offense, and just to test how far a defense can go.
