    Thanks Clutch! I was just thinking to myself that it's been a while since we had one.

    Good podcast.

    Team needs to get back to building defensive identity.

    Hard to say how good this team is with such erratic results. Really looking forward to tomorrow vs Warriors.

    A solid and realistic performance appraisal of the team. I think a small but potentially useful move like acquiring Mo Williams may be possible by the trade deadline, but that won't be easy if the Wolves ask for too much in return. Any other team will also ask for an arm or a leg, in return for another PG.

    We will have to wait for Canaan to improve our shooting. He may be able to create his own shot to some extent, but I doubt if he can create shots for other players.

    I do feel that we can mitigate our problems to some extent, by playing better defense and by rebounding the ball.

    The players have to do their best, but can McHale exert control and make adjustments when we are struggling?

    Clutch what do you think of Mo Williams for the back up ball handler roll that yall discussed? I think he is the most realistic fit because i doubt it would take much to get him.

    Clutch I love the updates thanks!

    PS: do you think CJ McCollum could be had cheap and be serviceable? He was awesome in summer league and looked like he could run the show. He is just stuck behind two extremely good guards at Portland.

    Just curious - - if CJMc is so good why would a prime rival of Rox allow him to move to that roster?

    For the DEN/MIN 2nd round pick, I could get behind that.

    I still think it's a little too early to give up on Dragic to Houston. They've got a really tough schedule over the next few weeks that could force them into a different direction.

    Idk that he could be had that is why I am asking. But a team would be willing to part with a player that they don't need if they are getting something they need in return.

    I'm starting to think trading Howard for a rim protector and Starting PG might be ok.


    Howard for say, Dragic, Plumblee and 2 first rounders?

    Exactly need to wait and what happens to teams closer to the trading deadline. Which teams are still in it or close to making the playoffs and need to make a move or the teams that are in whole sale mode. Either way Morey will be looking to make some move as past seasons have shown.

    Miles Plumlee is all dunks, bad hands, and average to below average defense.

    That would be dope, especially if we could turn those picks and ours into another great player and back up center.

    Thanks Clutch, would love to hear these pod cast more often since sports radio in Houston is still obsessed with the Texans. Gives me some Rockets talk to hear while I drive.

    Awesome podcast as usual, Clutch and MK.

    Agree that a secondary playmaker is critical for this team to take it to the next level. And cut down on the turnovers.
