    If anyone has to be stuck down in the G League, send Gary Clark down there.

    Chris Clemons is playing a dangerous game.

    We can never have good things. I'm more worried MDa will forget what happened today and nail them to bench when everyone comes back.

    I mean, when EG is back he can’t really get playing time. Unless one of Harden Westbrook EG and Rivers isn’t playing.

    I think it's presumptuous that the pretext of this complaint is that Chris Clemons is a good NBA player. We're not there yet.

    He legitimately will if we don't make trades to dip us enough below LT to sign him before the deadline.

    Tilman has to get rid of Gary Clark and Hart. $2.9 million is a lot. Keep 1 million for buyout man.
    Keep Clemons at $900k, then signs another two way.
    Keep mclemore.
    TeamTotals are about 132 million.
    fans needs to know cost saving program.

    I have to think he wont play hardball like House did - he'll take that 3 year deal for the minimum if its offered.

    Lol Clemons is much less valuable to House he is like 5'11 or w/e guys like that are a dime a dozen zero need to freeze him out nobody will offer him big money.

    I'm more afraid MDA will forget he exists and nail him to the bench once EG, WB and House are back. Lineup could easily be 5 people deep for 3 positions if MDA goes all in:

    WB/EG
    Harden/EG
    House/Mclemore

    Why would our future starting center take such a lowball deal?

    it looks like its going to be gary clark and Ryan Anderson at this point....ryan Anderson's contract was only partially guaranteed. no way they get rid of Ihart after yesterday...too young, so much potential.....gary clark is finished at this point.

    Ryan got pay at 500k on October. How about November?
    All 3 players have to go if Clemons want 3 million or there are 2 buyout guys.

    Clemons is already on a 2 way contract, they can play him and he remains a RFA this summer... I'm just saying there's no way they get rid of IHart....they'll trade Nene, green, and even Ben before the deadline before him to free up space

    Who are going to take nene and green? Do not forget morey has no more 2nd round picks to offer.
    Maybe you are right. Offer 2020 First to dump them.
    Its not easy to make great trade if morey does not have any First to offer in the future.

    I didn't know we had no 2nd rounders left...but yea, he'll figure something out. Clemons is basically worth a low first round pick at this point and I hope they won't package him to dump him to free up space....at any rate, this is assuming that there will be some good forwards bought out who will choose us.... Small chance over the Lakers who need help too.

    Morey will figure it out
