    Hmm... either a small trade in the works or someone surprising is going to get cut.

    That is interesting. Claiming a guy off of waivers right before you're about to make cuts. Hmm.

    So weird. Hopefully it means DMo is gone in a trade or something. Or TJones but we better get something good for him.

    How does this equal "trade in the works"? You guys are so desperate.

    We actually have a stretch 4 who can kind of shoot. That's cool

    Way too many guys on the roster, illogical to cut them all to get under the limit.

    I'd trade both T Jones and D-Mo if we can get a Paul Milsap or Al Horford type player back plus drafts pick(s).

    Well, adding another PF is strange when it was going to be difficult to get the roster to 15 with the guys they already had.
