I would still like to add a little more size to the roster. Does anyone know if Sam Dekker signed anywhere? Combo forward that would mostly play the 4 with us. Maybe could be had for the minimum and would be good insurance to have. Still fairly young too.

I haven't heard anything on him. I would like to take a look at Marquese Chriss. Nothing to lose but a hell of a lot to gain if it works out. Jabari would be my dream choice but I can't imagine he goes for the minimum. I have been surprised before though.

We're signing a shooter. Everything that Tony Jones has reported has come true, and his latest report was that they were looking at a wing shooter.

Possibilities: Nik Stauskas, Furkan Korkmaz, Corey Higgins, Duncan Robinson, Justin Holliday, Tyler Dorsey, Damion Lee

Who else?

Nice addition.

Good for Raul...... If he can stay healthy, he could get a decent amount of floor time......

But he's only a sophomore this year, so that's an issue for them.

I was thinking about Korkmaz earlier today. Well worth a look. I would also think about Henry Ellenson.

I have 12 currently on the team unless I'm missing someone: Gobert, Davis, Bradley, Green, Niang, Bogie, Ingles, Oneal, Exum, DM, Conley, Mudiay

That leaves 3 more members + 2 2-way players. I'm seeing Reed, and our 3 draft picks all getting summer camp invites with a good shot of making one of those 5 positions. If we sign another shooter then 2 of those will have a chance at 2-way players.

I want DeMarcus Cousins at the 5 on the min, he signs for the same reason as Mudiay and ring chases. Our bench would be Exum-O’Neale-Ingles-Davis-Cousins.

If we could get Cousins then our bench is as good as some NBA starting units.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’d sign him for the min if he wanted to come. He didn’t seem to be a cancer in GS, and he has an extreme amount of upside if he pans out. I thought he made bone headed mistakes in the finals when he was playing under pressure. But I thought he played well at times. Even if he just got mins so Gobert could rest if Davis gets hurt. Worth it to me. I never thought I would agree to that risk, but we’re a deep enough team we can risk it. Also sort of insane to say that.

I know Tony says we are looking for a wing shooter, but I'd still really like to add Thabo if he is available for the vet minimum. Neither Green or Mudiay played much defense last season as far as I can tell. It would be nice to have Thabo for spot minutes here and there when other guys are slacking on D. In addition, he is reportedly a great mentor, teammate and veteran locker room presence.

Exactly my thoughts and he doesn’t have the pressure to start every game, he can have time to heal, and I’d imagine Gobert will miss games to load management and same with Davis. Also if we meet Philly in the finals we have 3 big men to throw at Horford and Embiid.

I find it hard to believe that Cousins' value has been degraded all the way down to a vet minimum. I would take him at the vet minimum if he was willing to come here, but at the price, I suspect he would go to the Lakers or rejoin the Warriors.

On another note, I know Cousins is not close to being the all time great two way player that Durant is, but somewhat similar to Durant, he is a four time All Star coming back from an achilles injury. It's weird that teams are willing to pay Durant 40 million dollars per year on the hope that Durant can come back from the achilles injury, but are only willing to offer Cousins the vet minimum.

Apparently he has no interested teams so he should reach out to Utah because of medical staff and coaches, also that would make us the deepest team in the west.

We could technically sign Korver again because he's been traded again.

I’d be all over that.
