    IIRC, Jones wasn't actively cut by the team. Once they got Cousins, he knew he had no future there and requested that the team release him so he could find more PT on some other team.

    Jones is smarter than some give him credit for and he does not have that back injury still lingering.

    He is a solid 12 ppg and 7-8 rpg threat given minutes. And maybe even more.

    I think he won't be given much PT by the Bucks though as they are making a push for a better playoff seeding in the East. Chemistry issues.

    There is some long, hot, steamy, and quite embarrassing Dmo love in this thresd. I envision some members here moonlighting in Lithuanian bathhouses in the future.

    Dmo lit us up! Another game where he didn't miss a shot. What a streak! Credit his play for us losing.

    This is so frustrating

    I keep betting the Under on points DMo scores, but Vegas keeps setting the line at 0, so it's a push.

    Outside of DD who has a history of doubling down on being wrong, I can't see how anyone can watch D-Mo play and say he's healthy. Guy is a shell of his former self considering his current speed and agility. There is a huge difference between his back being recovered enough to play on and actually being healthy. At this point, D-Mo no longer has the ability to keep up with the power forwards of the league and with his back, going up against C's is just shortening the fuse on the already ticking time bomb that is his back.

    D.Mo is probably still cursing the day he trusted BJ about his damn rights...can't see a team giving him more than the minimum again next summer...soo much for some little goddamn incentives when he was clearly in a bad spot market wise, and now he's just decaying in an ugly ass team/enviroment with zero perspective for his future...it's sad for me that i'm a fan of the guy/player considering he would've had a perfect enviroment here.

    For me personally, the fact that unlike T-Jones, he didn't ask to be waived and instead is willing to rot on the bench and collect his vet min paycheck... this speaks volumes.

    None of this is a surprise, Houston failed his physical for a reason. It was DD and some other jokers who put on their tin foil hats and started looking for conspiracies left and right.

    Had Brooklyn's offer sheet held up, which it would have had DMo just shown up for the Rox initial Right of First Refusal physical, you now have to wonder if BKN would have cut him in March, per the exit clause of the contract.

    He might only have gotten that first year of pay. The guarantee trigger date / exit clause was there for a reason, and why BKN didn't really care to demand a thorough physical.

    Does BKN cut bait with only $8m-ish guaranteed -- as he obviously falls short of all incentives.
