It would be a weird fit, but you take the talent and figure it out. Especially since CP3 isn’t gonna last much longer and Mitchell/Booker is a fantastic backcourt going forward.

Knicks have way better assets though(at least based on what the Jazz want)
I'd rather get Davion Mitchell.

Ok, I know this will be controversial...what about Harden?
I'd stop cheering for the Suns. That's just a horrible suggestion. My top 3 least favorite players in the entire NBA. I would HATE watching him dominate the clock dribbling a jiving for 22 seconds and hoisting a shot.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Did you stop being a fan during the Marbury years?

I’m just curious: Why do you answer a question with a question so often? I’ve never seen anyone else like that.

1) Why did you respond to my question with a question?

2) AIG didn't ask a question.

On a serious note, what about Cory Joseph. Pistons have Cade and Ivey at guard. Still have Killian Hayes and Hamidou Diallo as well. They also added Alec Burks. Feels like Joseph would be available and not cost too much. Maybe just Torrey Craig straight across? Would we need to throw in a 2nd?

He shot 41% from 3 last year. He’s got some size for the 1 at 6’3. 3.6/1.3 A/TO, nearly 3:1.

Than Elfrid? I’d rather a colonoscopy without anesthesia than watching another minute of Elfrid.

Oh no you wouldn't. Had a coworker that had that happen by accident (massive lawsuit). Fucking horrible.

I’m scared of anesthesia so I would actually choose to have one without.

After what went down between he and Book, I don't think it would be a good idea.
What went down between him and Book, I don't recall?
They had some spats in that Laker-Suns series…spilled a little onto social media.
I wouldn't think that's a. Issue
