Hope we get them all back for the Bucks game, at the latest. Hope is still a good thing, right Andy?

We could have made a move for Marvin Williams.


Kemba tried in the buyout phase. Made too much money to trade for


Well not only buyouts but trades too. Plenty of guys who we could have gotten that could have played 10 mins a night and bigger roles when we have 4 guys out. Instead of pulling up rookies who don't play or haven't played in nba situations.

I mean I could go create a list later but there is some avg players who could be decent in a small role

Ok he's the one guy so far that I would have wanted. He's ripping off a massive 3.8 points a game for the Bucks.

SMH, Gordon is dodging Utah.

Spoiler:
Sorry I had to say it. ;)


Not seeing Kemba on the injury report lowers my blood pressure a tiny bit though.

It's not all about scoring man. Can he play defense? Yes he can. You can put him on the opposite team's best offender and he will hold his ground better than most. Can you use him as an alternative big on a small ball lineup? Yes you can.
And most importantly: Veteranship. Kemba wanted this guy for a reason. Charlotte fans liked this guy for the leadership he can provide. This kind of guys are very useful, especially on buy outs.

Yeah that's why I said he's the one guy so far that I would have taken.

Would've loved this guy too for all the reasons you stated. He's low usage, low maintenance, low drama. Won't disrupt the flow of the offense. Perfect complement to our stars on both ends. Except he chose the Bucks over us. Did Ainge himself go hard after Marvin? We'll never know.

Mo Harkless and James Johnson were the other two guys I would've liked on our team. They weren't bought out.

I would love to have James Johnson as well if he was available.
Mo not so much but he can defend too.
In general i love veterans who value defense, are versatile, do not demand the ball and do not create drama like you stated(looking at you Marcus Morris).
You don't have to use him in the playoffs if there's no need. Their presence in the lockers is enough sometimes.

I like VInce and think he should have gotten more time but if we aren't going to play him even when we're missing bigs and we clearly need scoring, why wouldn't danny just cut him and sign someone like Crabbe or JR Smith or Crawford ? Even IT could give us scoring which god knows we could have used in the nets game. I don't get why danny is so pig headed about this. we have guys riding the pine who aren't giving us anything. Why not take a chance on a guy who might actually provide a spark off the bench?

Because he was dumb enough to give a terrible player like Poirier 2 years of contract.
If we were going to cut someone would be Green.

Danny has to do better on the deep bench ch. we have essentially six players. Kanter/Rob are 1/2 of a player and that is 7.

After that? Seriously. It is floatsam and jetsom.

I like Grant, but he can’t scorer. Wannamker is being asked to do too much. Semi limited. Poirer and Green shouldn’t be in the team carsen Edwards a big disappointment.

Agree, but Grant is a Player & will score in the flow of the Offense, or on putbacks; he has been great ....I would be giving Waters all the mins he could handle ! Get him ready to help some in the POs, he is a 2way weapon :nod:

Waters really is great. Only thing is, Two-Way Contract players can't play in the NBA Playoffs.
