Thanks for making this thread, MDB.

As I've mentioned, I want to bring back Rondae. It'd be a good prodigal son narrative, especially since we just lost a large chunk of our developmental youth. He could play a stopper 3/4 role for us, a la Torrey Craig.

Napier is another retread I would welcome. Chiozza is a fun emergency PG in a blowout, but he's a liability in any sort of high leverage situation. For whatever reason, Nash prefers Tyler strictly off ball, and Bazz provides 2nd unit shot creation we'll need.

I've heard others mention O'Quinn, and I know he's not ancient, but he was washed in his last stint with Philly. If we add a big, I'd rather give a flyer to Vonleh or Bell, younger guys who can switch all screens, hit the occasional 3 and even pick out a pass. Honestly, though, I'm not sure we'll need another 4/5 right now. I have a conspiracy theory that we've been stashing Nic all this time, because we didn't want to lose both him and Jarrett in a superstar trade. I think he'll be ready to fill a significant rotation role.

Shump is another high effort defender that we could give a look at too. Did well in his time with us last season.

Maybe Napier/Crawford as well if you still want an instant offense kind of guy to replace LeVert.

I think RHJ right now is a no-brainer. Elite defender on multiple positions and now we don't have anymore trouble with spacing. It's Rondae, too <3

We need a backup center too: Dedmon, O'Quinn or Ilyasova.

I think we're not going to fill up the entire roster, the better idea is to wait until the trade deadline for waivers.

Great Post, names that jump out to me:

-Demarre Carrol (does he have anything left? He is a great prince replacement)
-MKG (played with Kyrie in HS, jersey kid, tough defender)
Kyle O'Quinn (excellent defender, tough as nails... good enforcer to have around stars)

Leave spots for buyout options if possible, only sign someone that's really needed in short term.
