Is there any chance boogie signs for anything les than 1+1 / 14m +14 right now? I mean I like him as a player he can contribute perhaps not sure if he is ideal fit (perhaps not dude is mental).

Wasn't he a model professional for warriors?

I do t want Boogie. Last thing Brad needs is a headache ache after las t year.

If I like how hard he plays. Maybe e can stop being an energy sucker and miserable person with bad body language and be a positive energy in a room.

There aren't too many options at this point. Horford was a steady mainstay for the last 3 seasons.

WCS- rim runner. Finishes on lobs. Quality interior defender. Average rebounder. Hasn't been a floor spacer in the league yet, although I know he is capable.

Cousins- pre injury he is a max player. 25/12/5. Dominates when focused. Capable defensively but not always engaged. Has a bad rep and can be a baby. IMO will get close to being dominate this season. Needs a good oppt.

Looney- good defender. Undersized. Not all that good. More of a 3/4 that GS morphed into their Center.

Kanter- Good post scorer and excellent rebounder. Spaces the floor a bit. Below average defense.

Noel- Injury prone. Basically a worse version of WCS.

There are other options, but on a short term deal I'd be cool with Boogie because there's still a realistic chance he could be an All Star and a bargain.

How do we get Boogie out of Golden State? No way he comes on the room exception.

I am not happy with how nba does cap. We sign one player, because we are under cap, and all the capped out teams are just doling our dash an exceptions. Ridiculous.

Depends on if GS wants Boogie back. Going to be an interesting year for them with KD gone (and injured) and Klay out. I think Boogie would like to stay because he is a loyal guy, but if Boston is aggressive in their pursuit they could ultimately work out some sort of S/T for Boogie. Perhaps a Theis S/T.

another note on Boogie. He wants to win. The East is going to be WIDE OPEN again. Especially, if Kawhi leaves. But even if Kawhi stays it's a pretty open conference. Milwaukee will be there again, Toronto (with Kawhi) will be there, Philly is going to be there, and then if Boston could bring in Boogie they have a great shot at being #1 or #2. Boogie is a handful for opposing teams to deal with. He's massive. he gives the Celtics an edge on most nights, and if he's closer to being fully healthy you're talking about a guy that can go toe to toe with even Embiid.

GS is hard capped to as they acquired DAR via sign and trade, not sure of the exact situation but not sure if they can give him more than a minimum?

Boogie still in play even after Kanter signing. Most likely via S/T if at all

Looks like Philly just waived their draft rights to 2017 FRP Anžejs Pasečņiks.
I have two questions;
1. Is this guy worth a flyer on? Looks to be a big body.
2. How do you say his name?

Old guys I haven't seen brought up yet is Zaza & Pau. I'd take either as a vet min for the 14th or 15th spot and use against the beefier centers for 5-10 min. Great experience for Williams to learn from. Also wouldn't mind Nene.

Enes Kanter and Vincent Poirier are signed.
If Theis is re-signed then we'll have a slight logjam a Center.

The wisdom of the crowd wins on this poll. The top 3 choices were signed, and they made a run the 4th choice Looney.
