    Praying that this is a Non-Bird rights deal. If so, would still have the rest of the MLE and the BAE to find one wing and a stretch big.

    This btw, likely means we're not taking back Smart in an eventual trade with Boston, fwiw.

    Yup after thinking about it for 30 sec it had to be a PO in the second year .

    Rivers is def taking less , but can opt out and we can resign him for more next year ... or if he can explore other options

    Morey is bowling while everyone else is playing chess. Nobody wanted to play with Morey; he was desperately trying to find a game in the park.

    I would trade Capela for Love, probably not Hayward and I was a huge fan of his in the past.

    What about the other Green guy? You know, the one that can shoot and has rings.

    All MDA needs to see is Faried post videos online of him shooting corner threes.

    I think he's a poor fit. We rely on free throws and 3's. Austin is probably the worst PG free throw shooter I've seen in my life. I trust his 3 ball either. Even when he was playing well in the playoffs, be honest, tell me you weren't surprised every time his shot went in. Horrible shooters at the guard are not meant to be on teams that take more 3's than 2's.
