JTA has zero NBA skills. How is this even a choice?

JTA is just a bigger sized guard body that hustles. That’s it.

Both will be benched and possibly traded to match salaries within the next couple weeks so moot point.

TBJ. At least JTA plays some defense and has a history of being a decent 3-point shooter, plus he played on a world championship team last year.

Hopefully Hachimura's arrival means much less playing time for TBJ.

Are you just basing this off the past?
Because this year, JTA has been trash. Troy isn't elite but at least he can hit a 3.

I was hoping for JTA to be atleast somewhat playable. Dude is terrible.
I would do anything for LA to trade him for a future 2nd rounder.

TBJ is one of our better defenders. He looks like he's been making his shots lately too. I like both guys, but I feel like TBJ is much better so far.

TBJ hits 4th quarter 3s. We need that.

Not true I was down on JTA also but saw this video on his workout with Phil Handy and was very impressed. NBA players are in the NBA for a reason

Not sure the disappointment in either TBH but Troy is a quasi 2nd string more like 3rd string SF/SG. JTA is a just a cheap tweener off the bench who plays hard without many (or any) other redeeming qualities other than seeming to be a great teammate.

JTA is the odd man out for sure, he's a good vet and could give some defensive minutes/fouls if necessary, but doesn't bring any true offense to the table. TBJ has way more upside, youth and hasn't reached his ceiling yet. I don't think the Lakers will be able to keep either, but if we could I'd say TBJ is the pick here!

Yes exactly, TBJ is clearly better and still has upside.
However, while JTA knows he's end-of-the-bench and is likely content with it, TBJ probably hopes for meaningful playing time so he can fetch a better-than-min contract in the future.

Welcome to the Internet. Nobody is talking about Thomas Bryant. They are talking about Juan Toscano-Anderson & Troy Brown Jr.

Do you realize this are minimun players. At least they are better than the 8 players out of the league from last year team.
