Do we offer Whiteside a chance? With Giles gone, it's slim pickings. Boogie, Baynes or Whiteside

I think ideally (with current situation) we grab gasol on a one year (sure overpay) then grab a flier on a young big with potential

But ready to run with a small ball og siakam front court


I wish we could get someone like an Aaron Gordon whom is athletic with size to fit in with siakam and og to build on our one effective lineup vs Boston

If we' re purely selfish, yes. If we' re thinking of his desire to maybe be playing for something bigger than win totals then he ought to leave and we' ll sort things out sooner rather than later. I don't see how it would benefit him.

I don't want Gasol back. He was as useless as a $2 bill.

Anybody who wouldn't want Gasol for as long as he wants to be here doesn't have much of a clue about this sport. Great defender and one of the highest BBIQ players out there. There's a reason why all the contenders want the guy.

I don’t want him back but we kinda have no other options. He’s better than nothing.

What’s the alternative? We need a big body and he can defend, facilitate Nurse’s offense. If he was as washed as people say why would the Lakers be interested?

Gasol makes other around him better that is his benefit. Not what he produces but how he makes others better. That is why Lakers want him, and Raptors want him as well. He is an ideal backup

For sure, especially if we can land some young front court players for him to teach and groom. Gasol just shows you don't need to be an amazing shotblocking leaper to be a defensive anchor, it is all about fundamentals in positioning and maintaining your verticality.

Didn't Biyombo finish his contract this year? We resign for the 2.6 million like in 2015 with a player option. Then when he does well in the playoffs, he resigns with Orlando for a 4 year 72 million dollar contract.

I will pass just like Gasol does on wide open jumpers.

It was a Woj tweet late last night.

That tweet was about the length of Ibaka's contract with the Clippers not the one we are trying to do with Marc.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

Oh. It was right under the tweet that said Raps working hard to bring Gasol back.
