Well you said "improve". That dude is a shell

I’d give loose mouthed Meyers Leonard a shot, he was consistent from 3 and a solid rebounder

Bamba got some minutes finally and looked great. Should have made a play for him

gotta feeling Orlando always wanted Bamba, traded away Vuc to force Cliff to play him.

I'm very appreciative that Mitch didn't pay the price that Chicago did to acquire Vucevic. That's the kind of move you make to vault into the conference finals conversation, not solidify yourself as a playoff team. I also don't think Vucevic was the right guy for us (especially not at the price he went for).

Kupchak is clearly trying to get us a long-term answer at the 5 spot, but he isn't going to over leverage the team to do so. We have cap space this summer anyway and there will be more flexibility to either sign someone (Holmes) or do a sign and trade for someone else we like (Robinson?).

And even when he was in his prime he was a problem.

Seems like Holmes might be our best bet. I just question what the market will dictate for his deal. He's still young enough to be around for a minute and does a lot of what we need.

I wonder if we connect with PDX or NYK about Collins and Robinson. I'd assume that CLE is going to extend Allen, so he's out.

I could also see Mitch reengaging with IND and/or ORL for Turner and Bamba.

These are my hopes..... along with us not signing Drummond.
