2nd rounders (especially late ones and likely late ones) have become a freakin meme at this point.

Pretty hard for us to being so dismissive of them when we see Shake Milton and Paul Reed.

George Hill walks in the door ready to help us win a playoff game more than Shake. Reed is 100 unproven.

That's what the Bucks thought and George Hill was trash for them.

I wish we gave up a second for Terence Davis.

He's no savior. He's a vet that didn't cost much.

I would have rather landed creator instead. Lou Williams was available and we went after George Hill?

Is he healthy? News about when he'll be ready to go?

I'd probably rather have Lou as well but he didn't get traded for expiring contracts and garbage 2nds, he commanded a solid playoff contributor.

Lou is a shell of himself and is not a proven playoff contributor. That being said I'm not a huge fan of the HIll trade.

In the end, blame ownership, the Brand and the Colangelo lackies for putting us in this situation in the first place. Morey is good, but no one is a magician. Brand would have given up Thybulle in a split second and we would have zero chance against the Nets. I still think we lose to the Nets unless they have an injury though.

He was excellent for them 2 years ago. Last year was not great but not terrible either in bubbleland.

The Clippers think Rondo is going to help them in the playoffs. We didn't have a competing offer.

If he just plays up to his career stats average he will be exactly what we need.
Simmons can play the 5 when Howard is unplayable while you have 4 shooters in Hill, Milton, Korkmaz and Scott

Blew a few chunks in my mouth but that shouldn't have to happen to often.

Hill
Green
Harris
Simmons
Embiid

When the playoffs begins

Bench:
Milton
Curry
Thybulle
Howard

Mixed in when need be, Olynyk and or Dedmon in the buyout market would be fine acquisitions. It’s no championship roster but you can run out very solid/versatile units.
