He has been pretty good for us. Should be the primary backup next season.

I agree, the question is who should be our starter.

He has exceeded my expectations. I didn't agree with this trade but it could have been a steal. Just another reason why I think we should have kept cho

Zeller and with willie as the backup. Try and move dwight since he had a pretty decent/good year.

Agreed. Maybe we can get a team who still thinks Howard has something left after this season and let guilli be the backup

yup, Willy's emergence is enough for me to be fine with dumping Howard. I've liked Willy a lot more than I expected to.

I'd be happy with Howard for George Hill. Anybody else?

Depends...

Is Hill an expiring contract next season like Dwight?

Only reason why Cavs might is if LeBron endorses it while the front office feels strongly about starting Clarkson at PG.

wow, turns out when you have a coach that is willing to give you meaningful playing time you're more motivated to be with your team. IMAGINE THAT

Borrego said that "Billy" is going to shoot 3's this week and play on the perimeter as part of expanding his game to become a 5-out 5. You can tell Borrego loves him some Hernangomez as well. Wants to make him a complete 5.

It is a complete shock that we have a coach who wants to develop players and make the better overall. I can see the young guys really taking to this guy.

This guy is going places. You don't see athletic guys like him at the center position often and he just needs to keep working on his fundamentals to make an impact in this league.

I'm very happy to read this and looking forward to see G├╝illy this year. He has the talent to become a serviceable center in the NBA and a decent replacement to Pau in the national team, so I hope Borrego shows some magic.
