We will need to start couting how many 2nd picks we have...no idea what's the point (trying to get rid of bad players!?)

It's nothing new. It's from draft night. I'm just wondering why we acquired him. It looks like he guaranteed 1.5 million this year.

Lol at the thought of poku starting at center

we got him for free?

We have so many players...no idea why we traded for Poirier.

Well in the end in the 7 ''big'' trades I don't see any bad trade. As I previously said, I think we missed on some value in one or two deals and probably overpaid for Poku but can't really say those were bad deals

Not for free. We agree to pay him so Washington didn't have to in exchange for moving up in the draft.

We didn't need that many trades to suck and be a terrible team. Guess Presti wanted to give our young guys a lot of playing time and allow veterans (like Horford) to improve their trade value.

Regarding porier, presti and ainge have a history of doing each other small favors like that. Ainge dumps his cap hit, we get free look, and ownership doesn't have to actually spend money paying him.

We could've sucked, but we wouldn't have managed to pick up assets.

From what i can find it's lotto protected through 2025.

Wonder who could use George Hill. Guess Clippers is the obvious spot but no reason to help them for a couple of second. Probably another contender in case of injury...

Several short videos of Poku training. https://www.instagram.com/pokusevskination/

Maybe he sucks but one thing I find interesting is he has that thing where he's extremely tall but he doesn't move like it. He's not stiff.

I mean, he's not Durant. He's probably never even a poor man's Durant. But you can sort of see why he's pretty intriguing. There's something to build from there.

by my estimation, with all 17 players currently attached to the thunder and accounted for + 120% poku rookie scale (and not including maledon), the thunder are close to $10 million below the salary cap floor.

All the Hawks are much better than your group.

Reddish and huerter are nowhere near shai’s value.


I was saying Collins, Huerter, Hunter, and Reddish are better than Maledon, Poku and Bazley. You wouldn’t tak some combination of those 4 plus picks?
