    Green
    Rivers
    Faried
    Nene
    Clark
    Ennis

    Only PJ, Gordon, and Harden are making more than the minimum with Rivers and Faried worth more than that. That just shows you how good Harden is right now.

    Edit: Correction 5 players. Nene was signed using mini-bird this season.

    This makes me angry. But I will be patient. Until the deadline. And when we get House back. Watching Harden drag them to wins is frustrating to watch. Hopefully Morey can deliver.

    Nene is getting paid 3.6 mil so pretty sure that’s not the vet min even for years serviced.

    Also Rivers is getting paid 13 mil to play ball this year and Faried is getting 14. They are def not min players on the open market.

    To be fair, Rivers and Faried aren't NBA minimum guys. They were paid well and got bought out.

    But I will say
    • Knights 14.6 mil
    • Capela’s 15.3 mil
    • CP3’s 35.7 mil
    All on the bench is devastating.

    I didn't realize we signed Nene with mini bird rights for this season. I just assumed we were paying him minimum like the last 2 years.

    And if you remove Faried and Rivers, who are both making well above minimum this year (even if it's somebody else paying them) you're down to 3 guys and the argument isn't very compelling anymore, is it?

    Look, I know our bench looks awful right now but two of our best players are injured and Gordon is still playing his way back into shape.

    Don't worry, bros. Help is on the way. I bombard Morey with "The Otto Porter Movement" comments every time he posts a new Instagram status. He never liked or acknowledge the comment. However, I thought I would switch it up last night and post this:

    We're about get help.

    See, THIS is how you do it.

    Instagram is a hot bed for the NBA. The comments, the likes, the likes OF comments. A LOT going on there.

    I would love to add Prince as a wing. YOUNG and under team control!

    I was told Morey is the best GM in the league, so there's gotta be some genius plan behind all of this right? No way this is how our final roster looks like, right? smh
