Of course due to how much we were linked to him in the draft and can't help but check in to see and think just "what if" we did draft him. I keep expecting to tune in and see a big 25pt+ performance or something but he's been legit AWFUL offensively. He has YET to have a SINGLE decent shooting night. He's been shooting god awful numbers ever since entering the league, including SL. Everyone came in talking about Barnes' shooting but Suggs is shooting percentages I'd expect someone like Capela to hit if I put him on the perimeter.

Glad at least Wagner is not looking like the bad pick people thought he was. I still think in time there will be a player drafted after him that will turn out to be better but that's to be expected but they couldn't make POTENTIALLY two bad picks. Don't get me wrong I'm NOT writing off Suggs so quickly, part of me feels he'll turn out to be pretty good but I get the feeling it's going to be like Lonzo Ball where he takes some time because the jumper needs work and in time he'll turn it around to be a good player in the league and I'd argue he looks to be an even better defender than Zo so that's not a bad outcome but he's gotta get there and right now he's looking more like Jerryd Bayless lol (that WON'T be his long term comparison). Really interested to see what he looks like by the end of the season.

How crazy is it that John Wall won't play this year. Healthy guy, bad team, just put him out there. I know his huge contract and all but what the heck, let the man play

Once Danny Green is eligible, they should package him and Ben to Houston for Wall. Preferably they do it before Philly comes to Toronto in December.

Well, and the other thing is Pacers don't need a PF so we can't trade them Siakam for Turner.

Darius Garland effortlessly hooks up Mobley with like 6-8 points a night. Must be nice.

Great young team.

They should be happy they didn't max sexton. Think he's the 5th best player on the team. Maybe 6th behind Lauri

They lucked out so hard on Garland and Mobley looking this good already. Their best player has become their most expendable player now.

Sounds like another team facing a similar problem .. but we’ll save that for another day.

Garland is the kind of guy you want to be your PG if he reaches his ceiling. He's like Chris Paul lite. Kinda like Lowry. Pass first PG, plays D too.

Rubio is running the Bench. Sexton really doesn't fit. Id look to package Sexton and Lauri for an elite SG. Maybe Simmons If Garland can shoot it. That would be a dangerous Defensive team.

Simmons doesn't make sense. They already have two guys who play out of the post.

Yeah. The only thing they’re missing to complete the rebuild is an elite 3&D wing like a Bridges or an OG.

I figured the Knicks' defense would fall off with their new starting lineup... but good lord.

Was never sold on Knicks or Atlanta as a good playoff bound team... expect both to miss the playoffs

This is why people want another top 5 pick. 2 top 5 picks in 3 years for Cavs and they look suddenly much different. They should trade Sexton.
