    It's never a bad thing to have 2 DJs. You have a back up in case the other one can't spin for ****.

    I don't think we're getting AG now.











    It's a joke.

    I am absolutely willing to bet money that we will NOT obtain Aaron Gordon today.

    Aaron Gordon and Ex Rockets legend Gary Clark went to Nuggets for Gary Harris, RJ Hampton and a first rounder.

    So is this how it's going to be now. If teams are trading their core player and they're able to do their player a solid (on preferred destinations). Most them guys wouldn't want to come to a losing team, Stone is at a disadvantage when negotiating.

    Unless Stone outlandishly overpay, which no one wants, players won't want to come to a rebuild.

    Age timeline aside. If you get a valuable piece it's still possible to flip that person. Though... Dipo seems to be getting a cold shoulders by other GMs with them low ball offers.

    I'm not sure why we're getting this "rebuild" talk... we lost 20 in a row basically playing with no big men and a loss of 3 starters... most teams would lose at least 15 of those games...

    They have talent on the roster, they lack cohesion and consistency with the lineup... that's a 1 year turn around...

    Sounds like we dodged a bullet here - Gordon makes way more sense as a ceiling raiser for a title contending team - NOT as a floor raiser on a lottery bound one.

    I'm glad that AG is going to a team whose fanbase appreciates him.

    This organization is a shetshow.

    44% catch and shoot 3P.

    Of course we dont want him.

    I think everyone wants AG over Olynk and Bradley. Except Stone and Fertita apparently...

    Sounds worse, but Olynyk has performed almost identical to Gordon and has a smaller contract and we didn't have to give up picks to get him...

    Older player, but I wouldn't mind keep him for 8-12 million as a backup 5 and possibly starting 4 in the short term... I would try to do a short extension to line up with Wall's deal expiring...

    44%? WOW...

    You know what he's done the other seasons (other than this fraction of a season):

    2019-20: 32.5%
    2018-19: 36.5%
    2017-18: 39.2%
    2016-17: 31.6%
    2015-16: 30.5%
    2014-15: 25.0%

    Olynyk is a VASTLY better shooter in his career. Aaron Gordon is closer to Russell Westbrook as a 3pt shooter in his career than Olynyk...

    The gap between Gordon and Olynyk is more than double between Westbrook and Gordon at career 3pt%.

    But enjoy your small sample size...

    If you told me all things equal I take the younger player in Aaron Gordon and hope he improves (because he needs to). Olynyk is 4 years older but virtually identical production in his career but comes with better size, a cheaper contract, and lower trade cost.

    He's a stop gap in Denver... Porter is their future 4... I would be surprised to see him stay there beyond next season...

    It’s not that we didn’t want him, he didn’t want us

    What would Gordon do about it? I must be right for you to be getting so emotional.

    Grow up child...
