    Definitely do not need all three. I wouldn’t mind trading Wall to an contender for a draft pick and young piece he’s an expiring next year though. He’ll probabaly opt out his final year to get a new long term deal like Hayward did.


    Trade Gordon and Wall and keep Dipo and Cousins. If we don’t get another big, last night showed us how much we missed Cousins presence in The paint. He’s a big body and poeltl wouldnt have gone off like he did if Cousins was playing

    I saw him standing on the southern border last week. He was tremendous, big, and beautiful.

    Wall's the perfect tank commander, doesn't bitch about losing games (at least so far) and is willing to mentor our young guys.

    He's also injury prone so we can rest him as much as possible while we're tanking games and giving our young guys like Mason Jones get more playtime.

    Why didn't he sit against the Lakers for two games which we weren't going to win and then play against SA? It's about picking and choosing. We were going to lose the Lakers games anyway, at least miss those games instead of winnable SA games.

    Hasn’t played in 2 years. Minor injuries are a given. Body isn’t used to the grind.

    I agree not sure if Cousins will stay without Wall but really like having him on this team. He can be a mentor to Wood and a vocal leader. Regardless we need another big.

    Of the three, you trade Gordon. Oladepo said he has a relationship with Wall. Besides, this is Wall's first yr back after being out for 2yrs, you got to give the body time to build up

    Compensatory “soreness”. Foot bone (Achilles) connected to shin bone, shin bone connected to the knee bone...

    Yeah, keep him out/healthy for 2 reasons. Lose while building up experience of young guys, bring him in to win a game here or there and make him look good in trades. "oh yeah he's healthy we've just been holding him back to give the young guys some run".

    Suckers.

    Anybody who had serious injury knows you cant play that regulary that early(or possibly never). He was training individualy and NBA games are at different endurance level and once his legs got tired im sure there was some swelling coming in and thats the last call to stop and rest... he now has to rest until swelling goes away, play couple trainings and should be good to go. Sorenesses like this appear and its normal after surgeries. I never had a cramp in my life but after acl i get this **** pretty often. It is what it is. Thats why they wont give you any timetable he can get this swelling in 2 days or 2 weeks it really is random as ****. I couldve drink one beer too much and have swollen knee for 2 weeks

    Wall will be back soon. His tank was on empty after starting a long string of games after not being on the court for two years. What I like is that he's still leading on the sidelines, offering advice and encouragement to the younger players. Much respect.
