I'm still waiting on a clear, great move.

I've always like him because of his tools but he's always disappointed. Maybe he can figure it out, and in the probable case he doesn't it's very minimally guaranteed

His skill set would seem a good fit, especially since he won't likely be asked to do anything outside of catch & shoot and finish at the rim.
Definitely worth a look on a minimum deal.

West/rivers/ponds(I hope)
Harden/Gordon/mclemore
House/green
Tucker/Clark(I hope he can take over)
Capela/chandler/hartenstein

God we need a 3/4 if Clark can’t do anything...I’d still kill to just resign shump

Ponds will likely be on a two way, he signed an exhibit 10 which the team can make a two way whenever they want. I'm guessing he and Chris Clemons are the two 2-way guys

Dude has one of the most gorgeous shooting forms in decades. Also very athletic, I was rooting for him to become a star. Just missed the mentality. Not because he doesnt work hard, but too shy, insecure and timid.
