I like Fournier (when healthy for sure) and for the right price would like him to return. But is it possible that the emergence of my "mr I told you so" (Nesmith if you been sleeping

Of course much may depend on if/what Boston does with Kemba this summer
Or have we given up any hope that Romeo will be good enough, at shooting, down the road.
(shooting and switching are my top priorities for winning BB)
It's a fair question to ask. If we run it back with Kemba/Smart/Pritchard/Langford/Fournier/Brown/Tatum/Nesmith are there enough minutes and shots to go around? Especially if you're going to pay up and pay what other teams are going to be willing to pay Fournier (probably $18-$20 mil for 3 years) does it make sense to give him that kind of $ when you have all of these other guys out on the perimeter all fighting for mins, all fighting for shots and you have Nesmith emerging and Langford with the potential to break out?
On one hand, I feel like this season with all of the injuries has shown us that you need the depth to compete so bring them all back. On the other hand, I think it's just not realistic to bring them all back, someone has to go, we'll see..
We need to move on from Kemba. -- Edwards is useless to us, as well.
Waters and Fall, need to be removed, as they don't appear to be able to make the NBA full-roster.
Fournier at $20M does become a questionable re-sign, with Nesmith and Langford in the Wings.
Also, Thompson's position could be upgraded, depending upon R. Williams' situation.
It's all in flux and partially contigent on other factors.
Kemba's money, needs to be freed up for Fournier, and/or to bring in another Center.
And we only need 2 of G. Williams, Ojeleye and Parker.
So, one gotta go.Proposed 2021-22 Lineup:Starters
