    Get Morris from the Lakers why would Houston allow the Lakers to get stronger against us? Sign him on waivers

    Morris is signed to a BAE. He might not clear waivers.



    We (and other teams) can buy his contract off waivers, just to keep him away from LA. We have to cut someone to make a roster spot, but we can use our BAE/or Capela's TPE on Morris, sign Green to minimum, and cut Clemons, Chandler or iHart.

    [edit] just saw @The Cat tweet explaining it. I'll leave Pincus here for emphasis, that we can block LA.

    teams don’t do this very often though. All of these buyout guys end up being free, even ones on minimum deals I. Players run the league

    Yep. I don't know if this is still going on, but the Morris brothers used to share a bank account.

    Honestly... would it be smart or stupid for us to go after Boogie Cousins right now?

    That's absurd to say "all of these guys." Why do you hyperbole so much

    While rare, claims happen ever year. Christian Wood was claimed in past year. Alphonso McKinney was claimed by multiple teams, when GSW had to cut him. CLE won, because they had worse record...earliest pick.

    Here's a list just for this year
    https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2019/08/201920-nba-waiver-claims.html

    yeah, minimum players get cut who aren't wanted all that much, and teams willing to make the other team pay...they don't care enough.

    But vast majority of buyout players clear waivers because they are in bad contracts...otherwise, they usually have trade value. Morris isn't in a bad contract, and it isn't uncommon for guys like him to be claimed.

    I think all the big men in the NBA should contact their player association's reps and demand that the "illegal defense" be abolished. All zones should be allowed. That's the only way any of these big guys are going to have a future in the league.

    If we want to put an end to these gate crashing dribbles to the basket and endless one-on-one moments, allow all the help.

    It would make for a more interesting game, just saying.

    (I'm for taking on the European rules for goal-tending too)

    claim him, then cut him after March 1st, so he can't be on a playoff roster.

    I'm thinking the biggest 'small ball' haters should be those traditional big men who sticking to low post games and running in slow motions. Things changed, they find they are becoming mammoth.
    Good news are, while demand changing market gonna react subsequently even tho in a lagged way.
    There gonna be more and more big men w/ upgraded skillset like AD, towns…or as you suggested rules gonna be changed accordingly.
