    Yes, Henson in addition to Jones would be something I'd like to see, but not at the expense of losing Jones. Both are young and inconsistent though. Jones for a proven veteran commodity is something I'd be on board with. Of course, we could have just signed Ed Davis and gotten pretty much the same thing without having to give up anything at all. Oh well...I guess I need to let that one go.

    Khris Middleton and Jabari cannot play the PF position. What the hell?

    Probably just someone who had previously soiled themselves via irrational love/hate for a particular player.

    Rebirthed themselves, try again on the wheel of clutchfans.

    A few posts earlier someone mentioned trading Jones + Daniels for Henson and Wolters.

    Like Henson too but Capela has similar potential. TJones is also a better player right now. D-Mo for Henson makes more sense but prob not for Bucks.

    Henson is way better than Jones. He can actually defend PFs.

    With our trade exception, we could wait for Milwaukee (or some other team) to tank and take one of their players as a salary dump. This seems like a Morey move, predatory.

    There are always those fans you know. And if we drafted henson they would be saying no way we trade him for both dmo and jones. That d mo is a euro scrub who cant play and jones is a another undersized 6-9 tweener who does not have a real position in the nba.

    Defensively, yes. Total package, no.

    Terrence Jones won't just be given away guys. 6'9, 252 lb, 7'2 wingspan that had a 54% FG% last year, can dribble like a guard, elite finisher at the rim - these types don't grow on trees. It's extremely rare to have this, plus the potential to be a top weak side defender. Yeah, he's not as good right now defensively, but he is 22 years old. Dude has so much potential it's crazy that some people just want to give him away for chump change.

    Ersan fits that TPE pretty good. I just don't understand what happened to the guy. He completely fell off a cliff.

    Landry would be another one to look at with the TPE if Sac wants to dump his contract.

    I don't really like any of Milwaukee's players. I'm more interested in the Hawks and potential availability of Horford or Millsap. Also possible in seeing Denver perhaps trading some of their guys, perhaps even Ty Lawson's available. I'm already out on Rondo personally because he's not really shooting well and his gaudy assist totals will make another team overpay for him.

    Just constant low grade injury I think. He also went from playing for a relatively clever coach in Scott Skiles (IMO) to Larry Drew/Jason Kidd.

    Yeah. For me it's all about Millsap and Horford.....hopefully Horford. We need a couple of more assets to make it work. Let's watch what Morey does with the TPE.

    Would love Henson to big our first big off the bench.

    Capela, NJ, TD, 2nd Rounder: Pick 2

    I can agree with this though.... you thought you have seen it all with his 13 and 6/7

    Jones has untapped potential on offense - he could easily be a 18 and 10 guy. Perhaps not on the Rockets where he is only the 4th option

    (15 - 7 guy on the Rockets)
