Zion is so strong, bullying his way to the ring against robin Lopez like he’s nothing.

He doesn’t look like a rookie

Napier and Vonleh traded together in that 4-team, 13-(and still growing?)-player-trade. They've been teammates in Charlotte (briefly), Portland, Minnesota, and now Denver.

That trade took me a long time to process, so many moving parts.

it bums me out when good young players like Beasley get moved because it seems like we perpetually lack desirable enough trade chips to make such moves

It takes time to fix the colossal **** up of our assets from the prior regime.

If we don't sign anyone, next year we can take bad contracts for picks and rebuild assets.

Too bad we are giving Drummond 25/year though

If we were to luck into landing Edwards in the draft, would Drummond be that bad of a get in FA?

Graham
Edwards
Bridges
Washington
Drummond

Seems like a balanced, young team that contends in the East for the next 3-5 years. Batum & Zeller are off the books in 21 and we have flexibility to retain our young core and add a backup PG.

You are counting on one player to remain the same with no fall off, and at LEAST 2 of the remaining 4 to make significant jumps in progression to possibly get to the 2nd round. Drummond is a player you add when you’re close (we aren’t). This is a needless roll of the dice.

Just be glad we don't have to worry about him on our court. There are a bunch of Turkish players better than him right now, outside the NBA, in Turkey.

Really hate to see that about Lamb. He worked so hard, was finally paid and on a good team. That is a tough injury. He can come back but it’ll be a while.

Beal 2nd in the NBA in scoring after 50-50. Man, imagine Kemba + Beal. No doubt we'd have a big 3 by now had we drafted him.

Imagine Kemba plus SGA, allows to play kemba off the ball even more.

Heck the big 3 could be kemba, Mitchell, sga. But that’s the game of what ifs
