The first 14 have the talent to be used in meaningful games at critical moments (some more than others). #15 doesn't seem like they would have that same ability. Should it be:

Travis Wear?

Joel Berry?

Isaac Bonga?

Will it remain open?

Bonga is already part of the first 14.

We will keep it for February cuts

It was only mentioned jokingly earlier, but I'd be pretty happy if it went to Nick Young.

I was going to jokingly include'Gelo as the last one, but didn't want the grief it would bring.

I forgot that Bonga is already there, so there's another spot that's definitely not ready.

I forgot to make an option to leave it open.

Your original post says "Will it remain open?' at the end.

Too bad Matt Thomas is busy. I'm sure there are interesting players that'll free up mid-season.

He definitely came to mind. I recall that he wasn't a great defender, but he sure was a guy who made that team go last year. He seems like the best one who got away over a summer. Everyone seems to remember him over a year later.

I've called this too.

Probably leave it open unless someone wows them in training camp, IIRC we may have a 2 way deal still open?

It was late. I can't it be expected to remember that.

Svi is more impactful and NBA sized. Thomas was what, 6'3?

Tarik Black?

I think we need a big who would be willing to play in limited minutes, just in case.

I had to double check, but he signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv

He's on the Wizards.

I don't want Nick Young near the Lakers ever again. The guy is a clown.

Svi is probably more NBA ready, and that's probably why Matt Thomas fans have been a little quieter. I thought he was more like 6' 5". He was pretty good about cutting back door when over played, but he finished with layups while Svi is a dunker.

DWade might be a option, if he doesn’t go back to Miami.

It was a tongue in cheek comment. I knew someone picked him up, because he had value. I think the day will come when that proves to be a bad move / premature cut.
