    Yes because he was our only true avenue of setting up a trade down the line. Luckily he’s still a FA.

    They made a huge mistake in trading for him in the first place

    Isn’t he still a free agent? Can’t we still sign him?

    He would marginally affect our defense at best, and would not fix any offensive issues. He is incrementally better than Sefolosha at this point overall.

    The team needs to be looking at other solutions. If we are going after retreads I'd rather go for Moute on a partial guarantee or Faried.

    But Morey has got to be thinking bigger.

    Yes, but not for his talent. They easily could have shipped him off. They missed out on a tradeable deal.

    Nobody wants Shumoert. He's a waste of space.

    The mistake is not getting Capela a real power forward to help him the paint.

    The problem is focus. It's like the game is 15 minutes too long and we have collective ADD. If we only had to play 30 minute games we'd be blowing people out by 40.

    Sefolosha is a better defender and brick layer than Iman.

    How many of these players do we need?

    Isnt Sefo enough?

    Exactly , we’d still have a large expiring contract and a first to use in trades

    Shumpert is not a good basketball player, man. There is a reason he is still a free agent.

    We have nothin to trade with Shumpert for him to have any trade value. No one is giving up an asset fir Iman Shumpert.

    I was quoting the guy saying that trading for him was a mistake

    The contract I was referring to was knight , the first was ours that we traded to flip knight for shumpert and shed salary

    Bigger mistake was extending Gordon instead of trading him off for 3 and d wing

    The mistake is Tilman not willing to take on salary ballast for trade maneuverability to improve the team.
