    I wonder if these guys will pout over the assignment.

    Also, will they all ride over in Royce's RV?

    darn..I wanted to see more of Donuts. This could be a good thing though if they weren't getting any playing time as is. Glad they'll let T-Jones hang with the big boys

    I certainly did, and I'm glad they're going to get some playing time, even at the D-League level. I hope all three get lots of minutes.

    haha seriously. One would think that someone with anxiety wouldn't want to engage much on twitter and other social media outlets especially when he hasn't seen the court and some people are questioning his makeup/character (not knocking the disorder). He seems to get pretty defensive and is constantly tweeting in response to fans' comments...many of them negative. I cannot imagine that helps him overcome any of his worries.

    He needs to lay off the twitter and focus on the lay ups and such

    Better than stay on the bench watching the games.

    Good luck for them!

    We are waiting them next season.

    All three have aspects of their game they can improve. Motiejunas his defense against other bigs, White developing a playing style that can adapt to the NBA game (plus getting used to the life style of a professional) and Machado has his defense and ability to actually score on his own.

    Motiejunas will probably be called up sooner or later if a move or injury occurs but the other two should get used to the surroundings.

    Greg Smith breathes a sigh of relief. This will be good for the rooks, maybe one of them will come on in the 2nd half, preferrably Machado.

    T-Jones gets to stay. This will be good for the other three to get some playing time. The Vipers are going to smash.

    I hope DMO's stint is relatively short. A couple of months before PPatt is traded?
