Training camp deal.

Exhibit 10 deal, which would allow the Lakers to waive him and then sign him to their G League affiliate, the South Bay Lakers, with a bonus of up to $50k


So he is a 4th string guard who was signed to send back 50k and then go to the G League?

No, I think this is a decision made on the projection of his potential, he averages 3.7 pts on 6.5 min, plus if Rondo, God forbid, breaks down, DJ will get playing time.

i know it was probably impossible but the one small trade I wish we could have done was Jerami Grant. I think he will help the Nuggets this year.

I was 1 of the few who mentioned absorbing Jerami Grant via cap space when Kawhi was still making his decision, yeah it seems like no one ever talks about him but he is a very good role player.

I can see the Nuggs making a big trade using Millsap's huge expiring deal. Dare I say CP3?

A trade for CP3 would be a gamble to win a championship if not they're stuck.

OKC wanted a first round pick for him, and we don't have any left.

Nuggets just gave Jamal Murray a max extension. Doubt they'd have any interest in Paul.

Anyway, I'd rather have Millsap than Paul. Paul is the bigger name but he's in decline. Millsap is a glue guy who anchors the Nuggets defense.

Can't see it. Milsap's (and Plumlee's) contract expires when the same Jerami Grant has a $9.5m player option coming up, which he will undoubtedly decline for more money. If they trade for CP3, I don't think they will have the cap-space to re-sign Grant if he does well there.

Do you mean at the Nuggets? I imagine he'll go straight into their starting 5.

Murray
Harris / Beasley
Grant
Milsap / MPJ
Jokic

Grant is a versatile guy who can play either position. He can guard quicker 3s and has three point range, so I have no doubt that Jovic, Milsap and Jokiv are going to be their main front line.

We should go after Faried. We can't go into the season with only 2 center- capable bigs.

Nvm is he signed with Memphis?

If Noah is available, I have him as their target rather than Faried.

SG.Bradley / Cook / Rondo
SG.Green / Daniels
SF.Pope / Dudley
PF.Lebron / Kuzma
C.Davis / Mcgee



Good luck kawhi and PG13 getting an open shot with that type of switchability.


then trade one of cook rondo or daniels for a 6"7 guy who can play sF

So Boogie done for the year.
Can we use a DPE to sign a backup center while still having a spot open for a potential Iggy signing down the line?

Noah, Dwight, and Farried are the best options out there right now but we also need to keep a spot for a SF buyout. I'd strongly consider releasing someone.. maybe Daniels.

McGee | | Boogie*
Davis | Kuzma | Dudley
LeBron
Green | KCP | Daniels
Bradley | Cook | Rondo | Caruso

We have a real weird balance of depth. Why they went so heavy on getting guards is troublesome while they did nothing to address wing depth nor a 3rd C just in case.

Bradley and KCP can play the PG at times. Cook, Rondo, and Caruso are PG's and Daniels is a SG in a PG body. Way too much depth there and literally no true SF behind LBJ... now no Boogie.

What an awful piece of news today.

Marques Chris would be intriguing.

Faried/Noah would be ok too.

Our Center rotation can't just be Javale and AD.






Melo anyone?
