    Trade our "TPE" for Faried if nothing else.

    I can't think of a player who would be worse for our style of play than Andre Drummond.

    Lmao. If you could pick the absolute dumbest way to describe Morey's off-season thus far, this is it.

    Spoiled child alert.

    hey man, $20 mil makes for a nice pillow, but being talked about widely like a dispensable sub-par player would weigh on anyone.

    Derrick Favors, I've always liked his game, maybe Houston's training staff can keep him on the court

    Vucevic and the Elf sound realistic. That might not be so bad.

    should've been patterson for $5mill

    was watching PJ tucker highlights manny they played well together, seemed like every assist was PJ kicking it to pat for a 3 in the corner

    Yep, we really don't have many assets that are of value to anyone.

    If not Melo we roll into the next season with the team we have + some other ring chasing vet.

    We'll be a top 3-5 team in the NBA still and Ryno's value will go up via playing on a better team than last year and having one less year on his contract. It's not too bad I guess...

    just that Melo could make us the 2nd best team in the NBA...1st best team if he comes here and is Olympic Super Saiyan Melo.
