    Reaves 25/11 as a secondary playmaker but clutchfans will tell you we don't need him because he can't create. dude would be the best playmaker on this team by a mile without needing to dribbling 30 times

    Playoffs will be an excellent test, if he does well we should go in hard and I'm sure Spurs will too. Reaves is kind of the perfect extension of a good coach on both sides of the court, I feel he'd be a part of any 8-man rotation in the NBA with his defense, toughness and shooting. He's like a taller Pat Bev with better shooting minus the dirty plays.

    Shorter scoring version of Giddey.

    Also Mac McClung hype died fast.

    Yup. If he does well in the playoffs, I’m all onboard. This isn’t a Lin situation. The dude has played well all year when given the chance.

    While true, I do think it would be difficult to sign Reaves, Harden, and a top pick.

    Now, if we miss on Harden, I could see them signing two nice, non-max players to fill out the roster as opposed to giving the max to a borderline max guy like FVV. For example, let's say we land Scoot -- I'd love to add Reaves, Cam Johnson, and make KMJ a restricted FA (Johnson may have to be done via sign-and-trade).

    Scoot / Green / Johnson / Smith / Sengun
    KPJ / Reeves / KMJ / Eason / Garuba

    You'd also have guys like Tate, Christopher, TyTy, and the Clippers' pick. I could see them taking a good backup C (Lively or Filipowski) in that range.

    If we somehow get this guy you can pencil in a trophy for next year. Think he averages over 30 points a game with this squad and Silas’ tutelage.

    You want to be the team that finds Austin Reaves, not the team that pays Austin Reaves…

    Hard Pass at this stage of team building

    I've always hated this expression. Who cares if you find talent if you refuse to keep it? This mentality lost us Jarrett Allen.

    This would make sense if Alex Caruso wasn’t doing the same thing for the Bulls and is their best defender.

    Huh? You're repping Alex Caruso now? We don't want him either.

    Last time I checked, Alex Caruso is playing for a team that's number 10 in his conference and well under .500. That's not the goal here, little buddy. We don't want to be similar to a team losing half their games and likely to be out of the playoffs after the play in games get underway. Your logic has the suck. Just stop. No way Stone is offering Austin Reaves 80 million dollars.

    Worst thread on the first page for sure. Let it die.

    Beg for your client elsewhere.

    Nba wants the Lakers in the play in so bad. They'd make so much money just off those 2 days. Credit to Reeves though, he's actually banging in the paint to at least make those calls look semi credible.
