The thing with getting the BFF is your eventually going to cut him or trade him and Giles is barely in the league as is, Do you really want to risk having hard feelings with Tatum?


Solid point. Unless Giles stayed health and was actually good for is. Some Kings fans said they thought he would thrive in Brad's system, so for me it was the Tatum bff thing but also actual hopes that he'd do well here.

:banghead: There is no way Danny can go into the season with Langford and Nesmith as the only backup wings. For one both are coming off injuries, Langford will actually miss the start of the season. Also there just isn’t enough scoring. He has to address it some way.

We really need to add one more wing. Either via trade if we get a TPE. Or vet min.

What's this? Grant Williams is a wing, and so is Javonte Green.

Oh how times have changed, people seem to forget when Brad had 3/4 guard line ups. IT, AB, Smart and Turner. And you worry about back up wing depth when you can throw out guard line ups.

With TT, Theis, Timelord, and even Grant, there's just no way we can find minutes for him.

It's slim pickings available in FA at that wing spot (in order of age):

SG: Jamal Crawford, Korver, JR Smith, Courtney Lee, Bellinelli, Brewer, Ellington, Moore, McRae, Roberson, Galloway, Rivers, Waiters, Tyler Johnson

SF: Sefolosha, DeMarre Carroll, Lance Thomas, ET, Beasley, Broekhoff, Solomon Hill, MKG, RHJ, Bembry

+1 Your post, -1 for Danny.
Of the things I like about Robert Williams, my favorite thing is that he spreads his arms when he retreats on defense.

Think yall should reconsider your random hot take that a female would be responsible for Tatum's hypothetical performance.

Plus he has a girl.


Kardashians + basketball players is pretty much a meme. Small sample size, which is why the comment was lighthearted, but on that basis I'm not going to apologize for making it.


it was also sexist.


How so? It's no different from complaining that BtVS fans got screwed when Sarah Michelle Gellar got distracted by Freddie Prinze, except for the part where Kardashian sisters are viewed as a bit interchangeable with each other. And that interchangeability is an iimage of their own devising, and is a major basis for all their wealth, fame and careers.

If Ainge gets the TPE that list opens up wide via trades.

For example, George Hill for a draft pick and TPE

Don't know how much Korver has left in the tank. E'Twaun Moore is probably one of the better names left, but his minutes and stats took a hit last season, for some reason.

For the regular season? Sure. Might not smell the floor in the playoffs.

What's their beef against each other? I don't remember.
