Low risk SF depth - Nic Batam. Look at his percentages two years ago. Still could be solid depth.

A few minimum PF/centers out there as well. No love for the Morris brothers, Kief is out there, Dario, Len, Vonleh. Dario and Morris aren’t minimum players but the rest are low cost/low risk.

Batum has been one of the worst per-minute production guys in basketball over those two years, though.

97 game stretch: 9.8 ppg per-36.

Seems completely cooked. Like he would make Wilson Chandler seem like he had more in the tank.

Batum is 100% cooked. His NBA carrer is over.

Dont know why people keep trying to bring JJ back. We already got his replacement in Seth Curry.

George Hill would be a nice addition, but i wouldnt give 1st rounder for him.

There isnt much players left that are worth investing MLE money on them.

Bogdan with a 4/$72 mil offer sheet from Atlanta, little wonder why he didn’t want to be in the Milwaukee S&T from Sacto.

I think it makes way more sense to go smaller with those surrounding pieces and prioritize defensive abilities and, ideally, shotcreation.


Pretty simple answer for Ilyasova - because he's going to be cheap, he fits a need, and he's had success with Joel and Ben before.

His RAPM numbers have also been consistently good to great, across a variety of teams. You can use whatever narrative you want to criticize him, but he simply makes teams better.
jonjames is a signature bet welcher.

He's a 33 year old unathletic stretch big with a career 50% postseason true shooting percentage. Doesn't pass, can't defend. If the calculator is telling you he makes teams better, you should change the batteries.

Now it’s time to get Hill added to the Horford trade.

Zhaire Smith for Tony Bradley?? Interesting. Bradley is massive, but is that the value of Zhaire?

Tony Bradley is really good. Shades of Hakeem.

I like this trade for detroit,they have a logjam at center. At least zhaire could get some minutes because they are gonna stink next season.

Well Bradley played backup minutes for a playoff team last year, Zhaire couldn't get out of the G League. Zhaire still probably has some upside (and Detroit is probably a better place for him to realize it) but Bradley was clearly the better player last year.

Bradley was a big project and much if what they felt he needed to improve was cardio/conditioning to where he could contribute. He isnt a spin class away from being Shaq, but he is only 22 and definitely worth a spot on the bench.

Are the Sixers in position to have cap room next year?? Impossible

No monster trade, but at least we have soms c depth now and we could give embiid some well Needed rest.

Maybe bradley can improve and may be worth his money.
