So I think we need the Nets to steamroll the Bucks so Giannis demands a trade. Then we trade Jaylen Brown, Kemba, one of Pricthard, Nesmith, Langford, or either Williams, and all our draft picks for him. Re-sign Fournier. Then you have a starting lineup of:

Smart
Fournier
Tatum
Giannis
TT

If Giannis is not available, we need to go after another superstar to pair with Tatum and trade the farm for him. Unless we get another superstar, we aren't competing with the Nets, period.

Better question, which player could you absorb?

Blake Griffin is the only on I see that gets close, but why would they even want that?

My top priority should be obvious (look at Sig)

Need a tougher more respected leader as a HC. (won't repeat everything I said all year on coaching anymore)

Look into making a good trade. I still want Smart but am willing to listen to all offers.

I want Brown but will still try to pry away Beal. If not move on.

99.9 want Kemba gone.. 0.1 need proper medication. But how and for what???

I like Fournier, think he has real good regular season value as a Hayward lite type player. But don't think he can be a starter for a title team. Rather have him as 6th or 7th man if possible.

Nesmith is the real deal. A summer camp and a training camp = a whole new and improved player. he is a 3 and D and more type of energy player this team so desperately needs.

Romeo has shown enough to make me think there is real hope as well.

PP is either a future good starting PG or an outstanding backup PP. His shooting alone will give the Jays the Space they need.

Rob Williams is a keeper But damn. needs to stay out of injury trouble.

I never liked TT, want him out.. Too damn small with limited skill.

Kornet is a keeper if Possible. At minimum is quality 3rd center who can play more when needed.

Parker, get your ass in shape, no excuses. Last chance you may ever have. but you still have game I like.

Grant Williams. Every team needs one. Just not in the top 8 in the rotation. But like Kornet, can fill in when needed.

Get some athletic size at the 4 and/or 5 via draft or trade.

Tacko can still be the 15th man, no problem.

everyone else, thank you, enjoy your life..

Calling it now, Fournier will be signed and traded for another TPE.

I dont think he'd want to coach. More like a special assistant to the GM. Make up a role..just get his energy around our guys

Any chance a Kemba/Rob/Nesmith or Langford/Picks gets us Beal?

I can't say that the replacements (whoever they are) will be an improvement but a change is necessary. It is way overdue. If only Wyc and Co. have the balls to do it.


Gotham let the cat out of the bag about how Wyc and Co. really work in this interview, from about 8:00 to 9:15:

No chance, brav. Beal is averaging 31-32 a game. Wizards will ask for a premium package. Probably Brown and a pick, then a pick swap, maybe even Brown, multiple picks and a pick swap.

Kemba + protected first that turns into seconds for Horfie interests me a lot, tbh.
Good assessment:

First order of business is trying to dump Walker. If they can do that just move smart as the starting point guard. I would definitely try to resign Fournier as well but I'm not sure how much that will push him into the luxury tax which rhe owners don't want to pay.

Smart
Brown
Tatum
Fournier
TT

Bench
Williams (you can't start him because you have to limit his minutes)
Parker
Nesmith
PP
Langford.

If everyone stays healthy that should be good for 45 wins and a fourth seed.

No, KG wants to own a team--and that is just what the C's need. (Yeah, the C's nut is bigger than the Wolves, for sure, but a plurality share with leadership for KG's group should work.)

I would ask him about it, maybe even a front office job.
Also would ask Kenny Smith about being assistant GM, FIre Ainge and promote Zarren (barring not getting Ainge)

I would fire Ainge today, imo.
FIRE DANNY - ACCOMPLISHED
TRADE KEMBA - ACCOMPLISHED
TRADE THOMPSON
UPGRADE PF
UPGRADE PG
