    Injuries will always be a factor with CP3. Which is why we need a legitimate backup for him.

    I think other GMs know Morey very well and have been shielding themselves from Morey's aggressive dealing and wheelin in the last few years.

    Morey retweeting this is him making it all about injuries and not the **** bench he left these guys with. Injuries or not we have no bench and our starters have to play 35 min a night. We aren't winning a title this year with the bench we have.

    We just don't have many assets to make a move, as badly as one is needed.

    Inside scoop..... trade before dec 15 likely isn't that much of a stretch. Still praying for it though.

    That's why I think nothing gets done before December 15th. MCW and Melo add $3,000,000 in expiring contracts to a deal.

    And, hey, look at the glass of water as half full: our 1st rounder this season has become oh so much more enticing.

    It's all part of Morey's dastardly evil plan. Lose early. Lure in the suckers. Spring the trap!

    They've been playing well lately.

    They always start slow but come back from large deficits.

    Band aids that may help a little bit now but also be re-tradeable at the deadline or possible low cost replacements or higher cost replacements for guys like Gordon/Capela if/when we move them out.

    We have to weed out the bad to make room for capable (well, more capable) bodies on our roster.

    Chriss?
    MCW?
    Brandon Knight?
    Nene?

    4 new additions could go a long way to a 12-player roster. Is Nunnly still available? lol. JK.

    Mckay's logic is flawed. even if paul and james don't miss any more games (unlikely) and we maintain the 8-4 pace for our remaining games, we still only win 51 games. realistically they will miss more games resulting in a 45-50 win season. we are looking at a 15-20 game drop off from 1 year ago. early injuries do not explain that kind of drop.

    the explanation is that we only have 5 rotation worthy players on the entire roster. morey will have to turn knight, chriss, and nene into at least 2 rotation players before the deadline and get coach B back on the sidelines so we could have our 7 man WCF rotation back. even then, our best 5 will have played too many minutes in the first half of the season.
