Luckily the guy who watched a YouTube video on rehabbing meniscal tears and is now the self proclaimed director of meniscal rehabilitation for the Phoenix Suns is thinking everything looks great post op and he’s already doing push-ups!
That guy was too expensive and was replaced with one of those wavy inflatable guys from the car dealerships in a lab coat and stethoscope.

Who was then packed with a 2nd round pick and traded for cash considerations

Plus, he's easy to pack after you let all the air out.

He's a good fit. Besides his athleticism, I really appreciate his passing ability; I think he could help get Ayton the ball.

HOWEVER, the asking price speculated in that article is ridiculous. Aaron Gordon isn't worth a lotto pick, let alone TWO picks. Aaron Gordon regularly delivers sub 40% shooting performances and overall is very inconsistent. You can't pay a premium for that.

Would you swap him for Kelly straight up?

Great question. I believe in Kelly's intangibles, so it would hard for me to pull the trigger. However, I do see the downside in having BOTH on the roster; both guys give you a ton of sub 40% shooting nights.

My preference would be to keep Kelly.

Jalen highlights look nice, but that score though. Makes me wonder about the rest of the game.
"30 wins would be an extremely disappointing season" yeah, I said it and I mean it.

I prefer Kelly too for the same reasons.

And I have really liked the resurgent I-need-my-next-contract-and-it-won't-come-from-sitting-on-the-bench Dario.

His play hasn't moved the needle for me...yet. I feel it has been a case of "too little, too late." I am a fan of his talent/potential, but I haven't seen enough to make me want him back next year.

If we could just show up consistently. We’d be right there. Win those 2 games against Detroit and Golden State and we’d be 9th in the west right now, tied with the Pelicans. The playoffs seem out of reach, but I’d love to see us play well to finish the season and pass a few teams. Get up to the 10 seed or so.

Oh, I don't think he would play this way for an entire season. I don't want to re-sign him. But I like that he is playing like a guy that wants to get a good contract this summer.

There is no way we can catch Memphis. We'd have to go 15-2 to end the season to hit .500 for the year (where MEM is now).

But yes, I would love for us to play the rest of the season like we could still make it.

Young teams have a lot of ups and downs. We will be in the playoff hunt next year, if Jones doesn't screw up the offseason.

Right, I’m not expecting us to catch them. They’d have to have a major collapse for it to be even feasible. Just don’t want to see us go 4-14 to finish the season. 30 wins is an improvement. I still want 35. 9-9 gets us that.
