    Because it's a luxury you can't afford when Beverly is the only PG on your roster.

    Yep, but that's why you should (probably) use him to upgrade other spots. I love Trevor, i would like to keep him but this isa bus...bla bla...

    We sign Kent at $17.5 mil, we'll still have about $47 mil to spend under the luxury tax threshold. Not bad.

    Damn. Full court press on Bazemore is really interesting.

    They are already there for Horford, may as well be there for Baze.

    Sure. That's fair.

    If we could get a substantial upgrade at PG, then that'd make a lot of sense. I wouldn't just look to make a trade just for the sake of it, though. Ariza is looking like a valuable deal right now.

    FCP for a role player? We've fallen on hard times.

    Why does this iPad say "Boshmore" on it?

    So our summer plan will be Bazemore and Ryan Anderson.

    And then our new season ad slogan for our new look Rox team will be :

    "Harden And More"?

    LOL

    What a joke.

    So now pursuing free agents is a joke.

    What are they supposed to be doing right now that's not a "joke"?

    Or Bazemore and Horford. I could live with that if we can make a few trades to fill out the roster. Any cap experts around here know if we can afford those two AND D-Mo?
