ehh if being a GM is competition about loading your roster with the flashiest names then yeah sure give him a medal. But the cohesion and balance of this team is looking very shaky and thats putting it nicely.

I’m sure you have much more experience in assembling teams and overall basketball cohesion knowledge more so than Rob Pelinka

Covid 19. He also finished pretty high in Rookie of year voting and trains with fellow Chicago native THT.

That’s why Heat fans are upset, I read 1 of them say that Spo is a horrible coach and is only the Heat coach because of Pat Riley.

iirc Dragic was injured most of the early rounds and Nunn played well.

Then took over in the Finals because Dragic was still hobbled.

Intriguing signing, same as Monk. Both very athletic and can be active defenders if motivated. Both good scorers at times. If either or both can play to their potential... this just got interesting!

Schroder said he wanted to start. I don't think that's going to happen. I don't see a place for him here unless he accepts being a bench player. It wouldn't be a smart move to wave him. The moves Rob's making at the guard position have me thinking he's involved in some backroom talks about Dennis.

The only thing I wonder about is that reportedly Nunn's second year is a player option. That means if we win the title next year, he could opt out and secure the bag elsewhere.

But I guess we'll deal with that when the time comes. For now this is a great signing!

Does have seem most likely to start ATM?

Gasol
Davis
LBJ
Westbrook
Nunn


Perhaps Carmelo in place of Nunn, but him coming off the bench can work

Definitely made up for Caruso loss and then some. And also securing THT made the day for me. I feel alive with this signing after such a Caruso letdown.

I agree with this take to a certain degree unless proven otherwise. It looks like Pelinka is focus more on individual talent than fit when it comes to role players. I saw that with his Schroeder and Trez upgrade. The AD injury kinda gave him a pass but if we are healthy and still lose, the benefit of the doubt no longer favors him.

I’m guessing Hield is not happening but wow this is a shocker for sure. Solid bench scorer. How’s his D tho?


I asked over on reddit and his defense seems to be bad. Can't really expect a two way player at his age for the price we paid.

I remember at one point he was on SportsCenter often because of awesome performances, very excited to have him on this team.

Miami had a gem and let him go for nothing.
