This team, more than anything, needed a 3 and D who could start at the 2. Clarkson will be 6th man and can concentrate on offense, a role that he's good at. Great addition

Welcome KCP! I'm glad we got a good player to take the "one-year deal only" offer.

I assume KCP will start at the 2, and Clarkson stays in a 6th man role subbing in for Ball or KCP?

Honestly can't believe we got this dude. He was on my "want, but don't think we have a chance in hell" list at the start of the offseason.

Also, I've always wanted to start an OFFICIAL thread

Pope has improved in 3pt shooting and defense every year he's been in the league. Money from the line. Great guy to have next to Zo; this means we can put KCP on every team's best perimeter player and rest Zo in the same manner that GSW and HOU rests Curry and Harden.

Man he got that fast twitch!

Lonzo is going to avg above 10 dimes for sure now. KCP will be feed 3-4 layup/dunks per game.

KCP looks perfect as a target for Lonzo's outlet passes.

Lonzo's AST average suddenly just skyrocked with one signing.

Our first signing and it fills the biggest hole we had. shooting guard and perimeter defense. I think if KCP shows he can be a more efficient scorer he stay here long term. Perfect signing, i dont think there was a player that fit more than KCP did. i honestly thought he was a long shot even tho ive been wanting him since last summer.
