I'm just doing research for fantasy and they're both great buy-low 2s. Pretty sure Horst is never going to make any deals, I don't know anything about that :lol:

Haha sorry but thanks for the help. If Jabari comes back healthy I wouldn't be surprised if we sold high instead of giving him a max extension, but that'll probably be February at the earliest. Giannis of course isn't going anywhere.

Hey, your welcome for Giannis btw...ya I said it, you know it, and we won't forget. Good luck this season. You guys are looking pretty good, still need some consistency from deep but building a solid foundation.

Sounds like DB got a little carried away with the work outs...this is a serious disadvantage for him establishing his role on the squad early.

I felt Bembry was going to be used as a backup combo with Marco. He'd play either the 1 or 2 off the bench with Marco at the 2 and 3. Marco's shooting helping to offset Bembry's lack of a shot but Bembry using his defense To cover whatever superior perimeter threat. I feel Marco is going to flop with Baze back and forth regardless but this opens the door more for Cook, Dorsey and *shudders uncontrollably* Delaney...

I also felt with Dennis playing in FIBA, Bud would monitor his minutes giving Bembry more chance to run point particularly in preseason.

Is Evans that pogostick big man that used to play for the Jazz? Wonder how much weight he's put on, I remember he was like 6'10" 180lbs.

Clearly, he was brought in to tutor Collins on his technique and strategy for this year's Dunk Contest, right?

Right?

Nooooooooooo. 8-) . I want Collins nowhere near the Dunk Contest especially if he isn't playing much.

Nice to see Quinn taking a break from his music career to pursue other interests.


Wait...those are two different people?!?

They're clearly related though, right?

Right?

...for Hawks fans there were plenty of bright points to hang on to from both Schroder and Belinelli.

Schroder was consistently the focal point of the German offense throughout the tournament and really embraced a dominant role in both attacking the rim and dishing out to fellow teammates like that of Daniel Theis. Mike Budenholzer and company will hope that he brings that same energy to the start of the NBA season as he seems set to be the Hawks’ franchise player of the near future.

The 23-year-old still has several areas that need improvement, sure, but overall his quality and quickness will be deadly in the coming season.

Belinelli showed us that he has not lost a step at the age of 31. His impactful performances with the Italians will definitely alert Budenholzer to what he’s working with and might even garner him a starting role...next season.
