Had to find something with "Fall" in it.
Kind of fits Tacko.

I am on record with having nothing but contempt for Tackomania, but Tacko seems like a decent bloke. Probably means the end of Poirier. No need for 4 centers+Tacko. Look for a buyout soon..

I've been saying for a while this appeared to be the plan. Green gets the 15th spot and may get cut to make room for a vet or tacko later

Why the hell did they sign Strus instead of Green?

Does he have pictures of Danny or something?

They're given him a $400,000 Partial (about what he could have made as a Two-Way). Then they're Cutting him.
Green, Waters, and Fall will all still be in play for the 15th spot. Once Strus is Cut.

Got to think Green gets on the roster then if they dump Strus.

I think Strus makes it over Green. Or, a surprise cut like Semi , Wanamaker.

I’ll be extremely confused if Strus is kept over Green.

Strus literally looks like Abdel Nader and has probably shown even less than Nader did at this point.

How do we know Strus isn’t playing well in practice?

Tacko spending the year in Maine is great for Red Claws and great for Celtics. He isn’t ready for NBA but he has a lot of untapped potential despite his age.

Because he gets no time in garbage time.

Usually a telltale sign an organization isn’t invested in your development as a young player.

I think the team should explore trades because Green, Wannamaker, and Ojeleye are all worth a second rounder IMO. Since Waters is secure on 2 way and our team is so young, I can’t see the team parting with Wannamaker. He is a solid asset to this year’s team. Semi has sucked but Brad loves him and he has size that no other wings on roster have. Green is a favorite of mine but he is most likely traded. I predict Max gets cut.

Nader played defense and offense, strudel isn't even to naders level. OK so tackos agent was bluffing? We have 3 2 ways currently? Waive Strus call it day.

I’d cut Waters as well. He has no place here with Kemba, Carsen and Smart playing point. He may be of use for some other team.

Offensively, Edwards is an SG. E.g., he had half as many assists per game as Waters last season, in more minutes. Waters, by way of comparison, is a prototypical modern scoring PG in everything except height.
