    As soon as we saw a ton of Tarik Black, the writing was on the wall.

    Good luck Cov

    Must be another team showing interest in giving him a shot for him to get waived this early.

    The guy has a great stroke, and if you don't need him to handle the ball much, can definitely play the 3, and the 4 some. Sort of reminds me of Dorell Wright.

    Hope he gets picked up somewhere in the East where he can get some PT. Should be a solid NBA journeyman when its all said and done. Good find last year, but never really found minutes for him. Good luck Bob.

    The trade is likely just to get rid of his $150k guarantee. I doubt we get more than a heavily protected 2nd for him.

    expected after we signed KPap

    Howard/TJones/Ariza/Harden/Beverley - you don't cut their starter
    DMO - our 6th man and tallest player
    KPap/Capela/Johnson - you don't cut your rookie so fast
    Garcia/Terry - veteran
    Canaan/Daniels - 3pts specialist

    that's 13

    between Adrien, Black, Jorsey not sure who to cut
    haven't see Dorsey play yet
    but can Adrien, Black, or DMo play backup C?

    He was M.I.A in summer league...he missed his chance so it was only a matter of time...He was great in the D-League but for whatever reason his game never transferred over to the NBA

    Cov was a good sign and showed promise. He regressed from last year this summer. The writing was on the wall.

    Whether it's a heavily protected 2nd round pick or a small TE we acquire for Covington, Morey still turned nothing into something. I love that man.

    he's an awesome guy to talk to when I met him at Summer League, got a pic with him, waved over Canaan to take a pic with us too

    wish him best of luck

    Makes sense. We still have one man too many, but it was pretty obvious Covington wasn't going to make it.
