    I told you why. Coz they are dump.

    Inglis for anyone who doesn't know is a 21 year french with insane length who has very high bball iq. He broke his foot and though he has recovered he hasn't been getting much playing time. The little he played he displayed gGREAT defence .

    If you want a buylow option to develop a 3+D wing with high bball iq here is our chance.

    No offence but this is a bad plan.
    Ariza who is tied in a great contract for an expiring Taj Gibson and a Scumleavy who was in question whether he would even be able to play after his back broke down?
    Gentile will not accept a standard 2nd round pick deal.
    Stretching Sewer makes less our capspace for next year. Keeping him this year on the other hand will make it dumping him next year as an expiring much easier.

    What about Ezeli? 15/12 with 2 blocks last year per 36 min. Give him $10 mil and between him and Capela you have your 5 spot taken care of for several years.

    stretching is a bad idea for a team well below the cap.

    Ezeli will probably get well over 10 mill

    Forget this Rondo fetish. Morey won't go after him. He's a chemistry-killing d***-wad. Morey certainly remembers how Rondo tore down Dallas season before last; why wish that on his own team, so fresh off its own bad choice of a point guard who didn't fit in?

    So one half season just made you completely ignore the rest of his career......

    Well it happens to harden so i'm not surprised.

    Funny he's not looking to join a playoff team. He wants to join a bottom 5 team or stay with the Kings? Playoff teams in general share the ball and play team basketball. Rondo wouldn't be able to stuff the box score.

    He played with maybe the #1 center in the NBA and a decent 2nd option in Gay. Was he able to help get them to .500? Dude has turned into a stat stuffer who plays for himself and not the team. Do you honestly think Rondo wants to risk losing 3 or 4 assists per game to Harden?

    His teams are better with him off court. nba.com/stats advanced on/off
    NetRtg On Court: -3.4 Off Court: -2.2 Kings 2015-2016
    NetRtg On Court: -0.5 Off Court: 2.5 Mavs 2014-2015
    NetRtg On Court: -2.4 Off Court: 0.1 Celtics 2014-2015
    NetRtg On Court: -10.7 Off Court: -3.8 Celtics 2013-2014

    You can argue he was recovering from injury the 2 previous seasons but the Kings were still better with him off the court. Why would you take the ball out of Harden's hands and give it to Rondo?

    If New Orleans likes Conley maybe they will dangle Jrue.

    if none of these big name FAs will meet with Houston, might be the wake up call Harden needs

    don't buy the Kent Bazemore hype. He is nothing special.

    Conley going to the Mavs would be so stupid IMO. Leaving one old mediocre team for another.

    Starting to get it now. We're just sending feelers to everyone and seeing if anyone will bite.

    and Durant considered a meeting with NY because they traded for Rose.

    Players aren't always judging like us.
