    Ah... Tyler Johnson, the half-sturdy-half-athletic Jeremy Lin.

    if that’s true then Dallas only has about 300k left of their non-taxpayer mle or the minimum. The Rockets have the minimum or 1.6m of their mle.

    If the Rockets want MKG and he's more about money, we have the bigger offer I believe.

    Also, if the Mavs are using the non-taxpayer MLE aren't they hard capped?

    Edit: guess they still have a ways before they're near the tax apron

    Da
    He's had a bad year, but he's a classic candidate to bounce back in our system. unfortunately we don't need another guard, but Morey use to covet this guy. Hard to see where the minutes would come from though.

    Anyone checked to see what Hornets fans have to say about MKG?

    He is terrible after his last injury, even his defence has suffered and is nowhere where it used to be.
    He has zero confidence and some serious personal problems

    This is the highlight "the simple answer is that he doesn't want to play and had to be drug back to the team after his leave of absence" according to their insiders.
    Reported in December so dont say its just sour grapes because they had to buy him out.

    I checked out Hornets reddit and the summary was they aren’t sure how good
    or bad he is because he hasn’t played at all.

    Why haven’t Dallas waived anybody then? If it was such a sure thing like Marvin, it would’ve been done by now.

    Ok what?
    He has played this year albeit little.
    There is no "we dont know whether he is good or bad because he hasn't played at all".

    He was horrible. Like he was the year before. After his injury his defence has plummeted and he even wanted to quit basketball.

    Thats why noone should trust nba reddit. A bunch of misinformation by mostly 15 year olds.

    Those who think that MKG is anywhere near the old MKG will be deeply dissapointed.

    He can't shoot. At all. I thought we needed to surround Russ and James with shooters...

    Well forget it.
    He sucks anyway. We didnt miss on anything worth while.

    The Mavs can have him.
    It's possible too, Carlisle will make him give up on basketball for good, since he is so fragile..

    He’s only played 12 games averaging 13mpg. I think it’s fair to say,” we don’t know* if he good or bad this year because he hasn’t played”

    You’re criticizing NBA reddit while you’re on Clutchfans. Ok sure.

    I’m shocked Tristan won’t negotiate a buyout. He won’t come here even if he does, but still surprised he wouldn’t give up a little to contend considering he’ll still get another couple contracts. He’s only 28.
    And considering they just got Drummond.
