    Still waiting for Morey to do something. Trade for someone. Negotiate a deal with House. Something. I'm really hoping that he's not content with this current roster just because we're barely winning games (even with injured rosters).

    When in the entire history of Morey Ball has he ever been satisfied with our roster?

    Since you're new : the rule is, "whatever Morey is doing, bitch about why he isn't doing something else".

    Trade him to Knicks for Vonleh since Knicks are really embracing the TANK for Barrett or Zion. They about to catch the Cavs in the race to the worst and they want to lose more. Chriss would help them achieve their goals.

    Just waiting until the deadline since he has a nice low-mid range filler salary for deals if any. Worse case we dump him for a heavily protected second round pick, so doesn't really matter to be honest.

    I am sure Morey is working the phones trying to upgrade our Roster. We are extremely lucky to land Austin Rivers and Kenneth Faried. But we still haven't addressed all our needs. We need more shooting and a SF who is a 3 and D would be perfect. Also we need size in the front court. I still think we need someone with size who can rebound and defend as a back up Center or in the PF spot. If we play OKC in the playoffs, we will definitely struggle because they have a lot of length.

    Marquese Chriss wont get in our rotation and he had chances with all the injuries but still couldn't get playing time. He is probably better off playing somewhere else. NBA is all about being in the right situation, right system. Good Luck Chris

    Chrisis is free agent player next year. He wants to get some minutes to get a contract like house. I think he should buy out his contract by himself and go somewhere

    Wow, Chriss finally did something AD has done, but...not anything on the court.

    I don't really want to pile on the guy, but..

    Something off about this guy. It's like he's, I don't know.. 'slow' or something. In the head.

    It could be something as simple as what Mike Newlin described as an 'ignominious physiognomy' - ie lack of self-awareness about his poor body language and facial expressions.. and I don't mean that is facial expressions or body language are outright *negative*.. as much as just.. lost, confused, slow... in over his head.

    He looks to me like a kid who grew to be big and tall and was pushed and pushed to play basketball, and got decent enough to go to college with it, and got decent enough there that scouts and teams were fooled into thinking he would 'grow into it'.

    This guy is not going to grow into it. There is no 'quick twitch' to this player. Compare him to Faried, for example. Can you imagine Chriss ever being able to play with that same level of drive, intensity, activity, agility or ability? If he could even come CLOSE, he could have a career in the NBA. As it is, he'll end up with a single rookie contract in the NBA, and then end up playing in Japan or somewhere for a few years, and.. that's it.

    In ten years, this guy is going to weigh 400 pounds and be an assistant manager at an Arby's.

    Sheesh, so much for not piling on.

    But I'm not new! I've been here since 2002! I just changed my name from jmwilliamson to Williamson. And I know the rule but man, some of these people.

    He has added Austin Rivers and Kenneth Faried in the last month. He's on record as saying they will be aggressive at the trade deadline.

    Morey has already spoken on the matter. He said right now he is content with the whole roster except the wing position and that will be what he tries to upgrade going forward.

    Does he not realize that NBA teams can't trade with Chinese teams?
