Jabari = Omari mentor



We need to stick them both on a strict workout regimen. The only weights they need to touch are ankle weights and they should be running 10 miles per day or biking 30.

I honestly thought we would include Spellman in that trade. I can’t imagine what the package for him would be now.

Crabbe/Jones/Bembry for Adams would put them under the luxury tax and fill up their roster.

Well there you go. Would probably mean Bruno spends a lot of time in College Park until we unleash him next season.

We have a mad scientist GM; always brewing new mixtures. Since we have Trae, Collins, Heurt, Hunter, Cam and a great cap I'm drinking the brew. Might not be a good idea to look at every little ingredient he puts in it though

Seems like a poor example for 'Killa Cam' and they seem likely to compete for minutes.


Do you see Parker playing SF mins. He's big. Only 6'8" but about 250



I foresee him playing minutes at both forward spots:

I'm fine with the signing. Doesn't make much of a dent in our massive cap space next season and helps with our prospects of competing for the playoffs this season. Parker's a great scorer but he'll need to be hidden away on defense.

But maybe Schlenk doesn't want to give too much minutes to the younger guys. Limiting their production can also avoid a situation where you're just in the middle of the Conf and not ready to contend, but with two players becoming All-Stars and asking for a Max contract. No need to play for the win next season by giving too much playing time to Trae or John, so better try other players with no risk : small contract for Parker, easy to trade if he plays like in WAS, they didn't wanted to keep him at 20M, but he played better than a 6.5M player with them

Is this something that's actually rumored or are you guys just spit balling?

Lol just wishful thinking since OKC looks to be having a fire sale.

Got ya. Had me excited, lol. I'm not even sure he's that great of a fit I just like him as a player.
