    Wasting space on this roster. Nene may be washed and black just sucks. With Capela out we need somebody that can hold it down.

    never liked the nene signing, body was already breaking down during the playoffs and we signed his old ass to a 4 year deal

    Nene is a veteran keeper but Black is not an NBA player on a contending team. Dude always looks lost and in the way most of the time.

    Chill. In their roles, both guys are just fine. In extended minutes, especially against someone like DJ, you understand why they are the 9th and 12 guys on the roster.

    NeNe is not EXPECTED to go more than 15 minutes a game.
    NeNe is for the Playoffs . . .. . .

    Which is why we need another BIG I see.

    Nene literally took a pay cut, got screwed out of his original deal and instead of signing with another team he was willing to work out another deal with this team to help them out.

    You don't trade that guy away, I'm sorry.

    Maybe he knew he couldn't do any better. He probably knows he's at the end of his road. Nene looks washed up. Black is a fringe NBA player but's he's the best backup C on the roster now.

    Tarik Black looks lost and loses the ball half the time. NeNe is good with his bench role.

    Monroe would be a solid buyout option.TysonChandlers despite his age he can still rebound and play defense so another option

    Nene is not going to be traded i'd say so...

    Anyway, so far he's not playing well, definitely far from last season but eh, he's old, he has injuries here and there, not shocking tbh.

    Black is Tarible. And the Ryno at the 5 lineup doesn't work > 5 minutes a game. Where's Joey Dorsey at?

    My problem with Nene is that he doesn't look nearly as conditioned as he was last season. Maybe it was the injury limiting off season work, or maybe he simply doesn't care now that he got his last 4 year deal.

    Nene is old.

    What is Black's excuse? Dude legit looked better three seasons ago for us than he does now.

    I always love these terrible, knee-jerk threads.

    "Trade ____ because they suck." The OP and people agreeing with the OP fail to state what we could get for Nene and/or Black. Answer is absolutely nothing.

    Just because we put up mediocre players on the trading block doesn't mean the player(s) we get back are immediately going to make a contribution.

    Hard to win with guys like black and weeber getting real time.

    We can make jokes about dantonis short rotations all we want but it seems evident that his rotations are short for a reason

    So you just hate Black and would rather prefer White instead?

    GET OUT

    we could have had willie reed (who had about the same stats in half the minutes tonite) instead of nene... for a fraction of the price and he could have been available to play 82 games and more than 15min per if necessary
