    He's a developing 3 point shooter at just 22. He has a nice stroke. His wingspan is 7'6. He is becoming the best finisher at the rim in the NBA. If you run off and leave him when he is around the free line he can hit that with ease. He has had some maturity issues. I would expect him to grow up being in this locker room vs the Wiz who are just a terrible organization. Everything points up for this kid imho.

    Can catch lobs(Clint), hit the free throw line/ elbow jumper(Nene), and has 3 point shooting potential?

    I'm genuinely curious as to what you see that maybe I'm missing.

    Scratch Looney off the list... Warriors are supposedly close to trading both GRIII and Burks, which would get them under the tax (& reset repeater tax) thereby eliminating the only impetus they had to deal Looney.

    From a supposed insider on the Hakws forum, here it is, go page 94 and you'll find the entire post https://www.hawksquawk.net/topic/431653-ask-supes/page/97/#comments

    He specifically said:

    "Houston:

    Name to keep an eye on for Houston is Thomas Bryant

    Houston also reached out to NY about Mitchell Robinson and was declined

    Aron Baynes is another name.

    Houston is willing to part with a protected 2022 1st as well. "
    ...

    Also, just saw Woj reported Miami is after Gallo and this guy posted it two days ago, fwiw.

    Bring him and Buck Johnson back and we can run the ChuckBuckTuckwagon offense.

    Bryant has a stress fracture in his foot that isn’t healed. He won’t be the target anymore even if he was.

    As I said, Wizard fans consider him to be extremely poor defensively. They prefer Mahinmi...

    He is not going to be allowed to shoot the three or mid-range here, period.

    He barely gets off the ground, so I'm not sure what lobs he is catching, unless you lob a tuna fish sandwich up there.

    I agree, especially for what we can offer.

    Although you never know, keep in mind the Wizards have Wall, Beal, Hacimura and Bryant so, pretty much 4 spots on their starting linenup are already set as today, that leaves the small forward or power forward postion still open, but they have also Brown (who can play the 3) who's looking pretty good and their top pick in this draft so, they could potentially deal one between Bryant and Brown and draft a player to replace the guy they would eventually trade.

    Ch44 just said we will know in couple hours. He said not exciting but a fit.

    Let the lamentations begin anew.
