Len is better than Thompson, so I really hope Thompson deal is dead. Would be a shame if Holmes back to Sac is dead and these shmucks are the replacement plan.
Bagley/Buddy still on the roster.
Has not been a good week as a Kings fan. I'm not impressed. Reserve judgement, but my heart is preparing to see Holmes signed with Toronto for 3/45-48 million.
My friend in understand your frustration.
But you have to be patient and look realistically and objectively at what we have here.
This is a 31 win team. Nobody - who is a role player - is worth much money. Certainly not the kind of money that Richaun is looking for. His stats will drop in a better team and he will instantly become overpaid.
We cannot afford to further lock up cap on treadmill lotto level play. Monte is doing the right thing and as frustrated as we all are by the precious idiot owners and management, we have to give it a chance.
In today’s NBA, it has already been proven that you can fill in tough veteran bigs with great guard and wing play. That is the focus.
Id be fine with that if they had a plan.
Report was we could have moved Barnes for Nesmith + 1st (turned out to be #16, still top 20 even with Barnes)
Right now it seems like a chicken running around with his head cut off.
Publicly claiming we want to make the playoffs.
I get it, this team sucks with or without Holmes. But then lets just admit we aren't good enough to make the playoffs and dump Barnes/Buddy/Wright for any young players we can get.
Bigs - Bagley, Metu, Jones, Queta
Wings - Woodard, Ramsey
Guards - Fox, Haliburton, Mitchell
Plus whatever we get from Barnes, Buddy, Wright.
But again, the team lacks direction. Haven't traded Barnes/Buddy/Bagley. Wright was moved for an older veteran worn down center. We signed Len/Harkless back. These aren't high upside guys. They are veterans that a team going for the playoffs tries to get.
I can't willingly support this.
Damien Barling sited his "source" saying the Barnes to Boston was never true and completely false.
His source is pretty legit so I believe him.
