I like our moves as the new players complement our existing ones plus we have some money to spend

Team probably won’t win it all but at least they will be fun to watch unlike last season’s **** show

Oh look more Brand slander when the official line from the team was THE TRADES WERE GROUP DECISIONS!!!...but of course the Brand detractors would prefer to continue to spew the lie that he made all the decisions on his own...whilst praising a man who just traded for Westbrook's terrible contract and left his old team with no first round picks for years...smh.
are you trolling? Brand was the GM so obviously the blame falls on him. Morey has been one of the best GMs for the last decade even if you want to make the argument that Frittata didn't force that move on him so obviously we are confident in his abilities


Brand had ONE draft and ONE free agency where he had to work with his hands tied behind his back. But folks act like other gm's haven't made mistakes before smh. The Horford deal was bad but he GOT Butler for virtually nothing and he drafted Matisse and he got a first round pick for Fultz etc etc...so if you want to judge then be fair across the board. Also Morey left Houston in a mess and didn't even reach a single finals..even though i'm happy we've got him those are just the facts.

Ownership judged and paid record money to hire Elton a boss... get over it.

The theme of the night was fixing the mistakes of last year’s boneheaded GM..... who is still in the room as the GM. It’s like an 80s sitcom. Plot: Morey banged Harris’ wife, so his punishment is he has to fix the sixer... but here is the twist... with the guy who screwed the team up as his assistant. Can you imagine the hilarious hijinks that ensue as Morey and his ill-equipped partner try to fix the very team that Elton screwed up?

It’s like a sports version of Tommyboy. They might be onto something.


I don't know, it just seems absurd to think Elton gets an extension if he was truly the leading voice on everything that happened last year.


Elton was a disaster. Josh Harris is just an idiot who has no clue what he is doing, so he is keeping Elton around. He kept Colangelo’s guys there for a few years. He tried to keep Hinkie there in a reduced role. He is so confused and lucked out getting Morey.



I find it funny you guys have zero problem with using this language when bashing Elton. Where was this fire for Brett? Seriously guys don’t even try to hide their bias. Here’s hoping it’s just bias and not more sinister.

Morey had a Masai Ujiri-like 2nd round. Those two dudes can play, specifically Paul Reed. No way he should have been available in the late 2nd round. Sounds crazy but IMO, he's better than 2-3 of the guys that were taken in the lottery.

And Brand went out and signed Al Horford to a max contract! Sorry, but that was a massive screw up on his part! I don't dislike Brand, but I sure hope he's got that "one mistake" out of his way. Let's not let that **** happen again. I kind of look at it like a rookie QB throwing a pick six on his first throw. Like "ok, we still believe, don't do that again, make better reads on things."

Actually, it would be more like a rookie throwing over the middle and leading the team's all-time great wide receiver into getting decapitated by Ray Lewis and suffering a potentially career ending injury and then the team praying its doctors can save the receiver.

what's your on the record picks for what you would've done as our GM tonight so we can put your immaculate draft record at risk again this year


Are you actually interested? Because I’ve made it no secret that I’ve bombed picks before. You can also see who I was calling for at the time of our picks in this very thread.

Are we keeping the Paul Reed selection?

That's not a normal pick at #58. Reed is a legitimate 6'9" 220+ pound defensive stalwart. He very easily could have went an entire round earlier.

Can we sign Myles Powell already? Just give me a crumb to be interested in during G-League play.

Morey mentioned him as a great fit with Ben. Perhaps they're thinking about some funky lineup with Reed being the C who can run the floor with Simmons in a switchable and heavy-gambling line-up.

Don't think he has the perimeter skills to survive any non-center minutes?

He kinda reminds me of a raw version of Bam. We could only be so lucky if he was a poor man's version.

Defensively, absolutely. There's some evidence to suggest that he might even be able to outright guard the point of attack. He was pretty damn freaky at DePaul as a junior.

That said, he may be humbled in that role at the NBA level and fall back to just being a switch versatile big. But there's a chance he can outright guard ball handlers. There's some major defensive potential there.

I'm thinking Moe Harkless with better shooting touch. I really think Reed can be a hit selection.

I would have been fine with Reed at #21. Steal of the draft.

Morey said he thinks Reed can play alongside Embiid as well.
jonjames is a signature bet welcher.
