    The big reason the Westbrook deal hasn’t been completed yet it because, Morey can still acquire about 9M more In salary, Andre roberson is still on a $10M deal. So by giving Okc extra draft compensation and the +125% rule we can acquire Andre Roberson in this deal as well. And still use the Shumpert sign and trade for another significant player.

    I would absolutely love to have Roberson play the 4 behind Tuck!

    Will be our defensive specialist against the lakers and clippers

    For anyone complaining about injury after his avulsion fracture. He’s on a bone and tendon diet so he will be 100% by training camp

    Andre Roberson is a need for sure, Terrance Ferguson is a awesome shooter.

    If we play him as a big, we don’t let him shoot. He’s a defensive specialist and a very ELITE and young one at that.

    Pass. If you can’t space the floor, I’m having a hard time seeing your purpose on this team.

    Russ and Roberson on the floor at the same time means there’s two defenders sagging off of their assignment.

    He’s making 10m and he’s 26, you’re out of your mind. Look at how roberson plays defense. THAT IS VALUABLE

    You use him as a big. And as a defensive specialist. If that mutha****a can make it hard for Kawhi or Lebron on offense then he fulfills his purpose

    GIVE UP ANOTHER DRAFT PICK!!!!!

    Hell, lets just give up our #1 picks for '28 '30 and '32 while we're at it. Who needs them anyway. The world might not even be here in 10 years

    Exactly.

    Imagine a

    Tucker
    Roberson
    Gordon
    Harden
    Westbrook
    Lineup against clippers. You would have Roberson on PG, and Tucker on Kawhi. It’s important to have another defender

    Completely agree. We now have two mediocre starters on the defensive side. Westbrook is a MAJOR downgrade to CP in this aspect. We need some defensive help.

    Roberson hasn't played yet since he hurt his knee a year and half ago. He kept having setbacks.. I don't know if he will ever be the same player again.
