    He just doesn’t like Theis. Same old stereotype stuff

    Yeah, there's always been a high number of racists on this board.

    Naw garuba will come, but there is going to be some rgv time for sengun most likely and probably garuba, too

    and theis has played the 4 some, too, so I really think all 4 of these bigs can play together somewhat (sengun/garuba will take the most time unless someone develops a better shot)

    I’m wondering if theis is going to get a starting spot? Probably I guess

    our lineups are hard to picture right now because we have SOOO much young talent that needs playing time

    wood/garuba/sengun
    Theis/kj/sengun
    Tate/gordon/nwaba/Christopher
    Kpj/green/brooks
    Wall/thomas

    best guess without listing players twice (like kpj at 1 when wall sits)

    looking at that I really don’t mind gordon being our last vet with theis and nwaba to help guide the youngins. He’s been overpaid, but a great guy for the team….it’s just wall that has to go

    Weird it’s not reported by anybody else and there’s no numbers yet.

    Still trying to figure a trade out. Not as simple as a straight FA signing.

    Theis is our backup center. Weird that anyone would pencil him as starter.

    This is the guy we needed to sign 6'11 by the way Thesis wingspan is just under 7 feet...Cade is over 7 feet.....we needed Zach Collins

    This is a very negative approach.

    Stone has been great with the long term picture in mind. Just enjoy next year and Greens development.

    He's played 11 games in two seasons and just had surgery again on the same leg that kept him out. He'll be out a good chunk of next season as well.

    Agree.
    It’ll probably happen? but I think Kelly wanted to be “first”. :D (even though it was rumored.)

    Probably not worth having a discussion with someone who thinks Collins is a better shot blocker than Theis.

    Hopefully he gets here in a sign and trade. Would be nice to keep the mle.

    perfect kind of vet. Someone who is going to work hard to make the rookies earn their minutes, but shouldn’t be too much of a hurdle for them if they catch on quick.

    But his swings have been very dainty.

    Stone is on a roll so far. I wonder if Tilman finally learned to GTFO of his way. Part of me fantasizes that Stone gave Tilman the same speech that Shelby gave Ford in Ford v Ferrari.
