Was hoping to keep him somehow. Glad he was able to find an opportunity.

Happy for him. He had some nice spurts and showed a few sought after traits in today's NBA. Namely, 3+D abilities. Best of luck Paul.

Yeah, this. Rooting for him to be the next Cam Payne type post raps breakout.
I believe in Masai.

Probably. PWJ just needs to be healthy. That OKC squad has so many young players that an older guy with some experience should be able to get 2nd team minutes. If PWJ can get some reps, he'll be a solid role player off the bench.

It looks like the Raps give these wing guys a fixed window to break out and show their stuff as they can always find another guy looking to compete on a small contract. Timing on Oshae wasn't good, but he had a window and it just didn't line up. If you look at the finished quality of guys that the Raps cycle through their programme, it's pretty amazing. Think back a few years and some of these guys could have started on some of those awful 2008-2013 teams (thanks BC). Our programme is deeply talented and the internal competition level is getting higher and higher. Masai has built a feeder mill that other teams are emulating.
