Marquesse Chriss on the market again.
I’d take him and cut Edwards.
But good lord was Jaylen a good pick in that draft!

I’d love Porter if available but otherwise am fine with what we have.

Olynyk was/is my last hope.
Otherwise, let's just roll with who we've got.

Dieng has regressed as a player in the last year or two. Stay away. Kornet is a better fit.

We should keep the team the way it is for now. There isn’t a player available that is any good, other than Chriss.

Chriss finally started playing well for the Warriors but then got hurt.

I’d lost track of the fact that Chriss is out for the season with a broken leg. I’d still cut Edwards for him but mostly nevermind.

Jacqua there’s no indication yet that ORL is going to cut Otto Porter.

Otto Porter would be nice. IIRC, in Washington he was some sort of protégé of Paul Pierce's, who had nice words to say about him. I'm not sure why his numbers fell off a cliff a couple years ago, though.

He's had a lot of injuries.

Drummond and Aldridge were always long shots . Title contenders and current champs always get these guys. In a couple of years when we’re the champs the big name free agents sand title seekers will
Sign with us . I think our team is pretty much set . Cut waters and off you go . After last night there’s no way they don’t keep Kornet . By the way waters looks like he’s really bulked up. I think the kid can play but Edwards has a guaranteed contract so no way he goes and Tacko is too much of a feel good story . You can always find a guard but you can’t find 7’ 3” guys

I agree and he's the one who started the Ainge rejecting Turner and McDermott for Hayward rumor too.

To me, it was this tweet where my BS-ometer started going off. Lol. It sounds so made up.

I wouldn't throw things if they signed Cousins at this stage of his career. But I still don't know the plan with any of these center targets. Are they really going to sit Thompson? At least with Cousins you might be able to get away with double big with Timelord. But it's dicey.

And, as silly as it sounds, I think it's wise to continue to see Wagner and Kornet and decide if either might make sense as a 3rd center for next year if no better options present themselves.
Of the things I like about Robert Williams, my favorite thing is that he spreads his arms when he retreats on defense.

Romeo is our buyout guy
(and trade deadline acquisition)
(and maybe we'll draft him again this year for good measure)

We need proven weapons
he was averaging 10 and 8 in 20mpg this season, he can knock down 3s and ALWAYS plays with edge ...any of Carsen Moe or Korny could be waived at this point !

Boogie would be very nice for us .... vet former AllPro, compliments everything we want to do w Rob, and can knock down FTs (rob and tt struggle badly at FTs) DC has plenty left in tank to produce in small to medium roll... would be great to throw him at embiid for 10-30 mins


IF NOT, TT BETTER GET HIS **** straight AND VALIDATE his **** $$ !!

Just like with Drummond and LMA sure DMC would be a great add- but why would he pick us? Boston isn't a destination, we aren't winning and we already have a lot of bigs.

It makes sense to go for any of these guys because worse case you can just cut them.
