I hope we don't trade him. I could see teams trying to pick off guys like THT and Caruso, some of our younger players that have improved and shown upside.

Unless we are getting like an Oladipo long term piece back I'd be hesitant to trade them.

He's a free agent in 2021. Think he will be affordable for us long-term while we are focused on championship window?

Hopefully, Penberthy can work his magic on THT.

THT is definitely gonna be a rotational player this season. Especially with this early start of the season where he has the freshest legs.

He has a very unique body type. A big 6’4 guy with a ridiculous 7’1 wingspan. And skills as a player maker with a nice straight drive to the basket.

I would say he’s like a Boris Diaw.

I think this kid is going to be really good. He has that "it" factor. Plus he has a really good support system being in the Kutch family.

He'll get some play time earlier on, but it will probably be hard for him to crack the rotation based on the moves we're expecting.

He's absolutely going to be in the rotation. I'd expect minutes in the 12-15mpg range this year.

Same. And if he plays well, those minutes will go up.

I was very impressed in his minutes against the Rockets. He came in unexpectedly and he stepped up when his number was called.

I am very much looking forward to him.

Well this guy was our fallback plan should Pelinka snooze at trading for a pick. Guess contenders can't play more than one prospect in any meaningful rotational minutes and THT will be that.

Wow, just realize how young he is. Turning 20 next week. Younger than some of the one-and-done's in this years's draft!

And has more NBA experience than all of them.

I have high hopes for THT. I'm excited and looking forward to his play. My assumption is that he replaces Avery Bradley.

Remember Harden as 6th man in OKC? not that big but same role-ish in O (7th after Schroeder I guess)

I think this kid is going to be an all star someday and will be seeing major minutes this year.
