I still dont understand for the life of me how Skal is unsigned. Was his injury really that bad?

And Moses Brown, my god. That OKC team just keeps finding young, cost controlled guys in the couch lol.

Moses Brown just signed a 4 year completely unguaranteed contract. His agent should be shot by firing squad. How is this good for Moses? He doesn't collect a penny of that contract unless he is good enough to get more money in free agency.

I thought Skal is playing in G league. So, he isn't injured. He signed a contract at beginning of season with Knicks, then was dumped.

It appears he isn't any good. We saw he can score.

Skal didn't play bad defense either. I liked the guy and would be just fine offering him a spot. He could support both the PF/C positions if necessary. Make it happen!!!

Yes, add some big depth (making up for no Collins) at low cost. Skal or Noah would fill that bill. Both would help more than continual empty roster space of Lillard's cousin.

We need a big so with olshey logic we will inevitably go after a tweener guard in the buyout market?

We need a big that is better than Giles. Giles is healthy and ready to play. It's not easy to find what we need. Sometimes you settle for the most useful option available.

I bellieve Giles was on the squad while it was still believed that Collins would play within a month. Thus my opinion that, since Collins is a wash, another replacement big would be beneficial. Three 6'9" or more is not enough, as we have seen in other seasons, heading into the playoffs. Get someone cheap and familiar with a nose for rebounding.

I wonder if Olshey let Brown go too soon. Anyone see his numbers the last 11 games. When here, he looked like a charity case. I haven't actually saw any of those games, so he might still look like a charity case. He is getting numbers.

Cousins settled for a 10-day contract. One would assume he was available to anyone willing to offer a regular VM contract before he would settle for a 10-day deal.
