How many minutes are left behind Simmons/Replacement, Curry, Shake, Maxey, and Joe?

I'm sure he'll play garbage time, but unless someone really struggles, there's probably not much time left.


This.

If Maxey and Milton have not improved defensively. Maybe he gets spot mins here and there still nothing to depend on.

I like this bulls squad
Lonzo, Caruso and Pat are good defenders, and you have 3 good scorers in Lavine, Derozan and Vuc. I wouldnt be surprised if they are better than us next season.

The US olympic team has won 4 in a row. I heard on nba radio that this is the first time Zach Lavine's team has won 4 straight since he was in college.

Good defenders, good spacing, capable scorers, court general, they even got Coby white off the bench. Maybe even trade White, Williams and picks for a big third piece

That matter?

If Zach Lavine is with the 98 Bulls he’d won a championship ring with MJ that year

Im leaning towards Jared Springer not playable next season. I even think that he’ll be included in the Ben for Dame deal that we need yuuby to confirm the date of when the deal will go down

That would've been impressive. He was only 3 years old. :lol:

I disagree with that assessment. The only raw aspect of Springer's game is his shotcreating.

What's the fastest way for rookies to get on the court? Defense and moving the ball. Springer has ready made day 1 traits.

The crowd of people who point that out are the same group that thought Devin Booker was a career loser. Until he was the leading scorer on a Finals Team at age 24.

Defend and move the ball? I want to see how his defense translate first, he is able to body those college guards with his size and strength he will be going up against grown men now. Also not sure he has the quickness to stay with smaller speedy guards.

Springer has fantastic natural passing instincts. He had a 24% assist rate overall. Once conference play in the SEC ramped up and he became a regular starter, he posted a 28% assist percentage.

Also, look at his steal and block percentage. I have no questions about his defense. Yeah, he's big and strong and bullied college players, but you don't get those insane deflection metrics unless you have great instincts to close in on the ball. Springer is a stud on both ends.

The Bulls are better, but they’re still looking at the play-in tournament IMO.
It is highly unlikely that the Sixers will agree with your Ben Simmons evaluation for the purposes of a trade.

The Sixers aren’t playing rookies this year. Maxey is the only sub 22 rookie deal guy getting PT here.

It amazes me how the Lakers always seem to have 30 open roster spots every summer.

While this is probably the case, I think we are coming off a playoff experience where we are wishing we had given Maxey and Reed more regular season burn.

We know our starting 5 was a crazy +15, we really need to find the ideal resting lineups (that are not 5 bench guys losing leads) to complement that.

Gee, I wonder if that take had something to do with the fact that while being the leading scorer, Phoenix had 3 straight years of under 25 wins a season. His best year was 34-39.

Amazingly, it was the Suns getting an old munchkin PG to be the floor leader that the Suns went to the finals. But you keep living in your la la land Kobble.

Also still waiting for you to address how the Bucks fans feel about the old munchkin Jrue that the team sold its future for.

Hmm, you want to roll with Springer who plays defense and moves the ball but cant shot create... for some reason that tune feels familiar.

Can anyone tell me why a PG who plays defense, passes well but cant shoot or shot create sounds so dang familiar? :banghead:

I can assure you, Springer is not a PG.
