I think maybe a bit more Book/Landry at the point. Monty seems pretty set with his rotations at this point and doesn't reach too far down the bench.
I could see Okogie getting some minutes if Landry is more of the backup PG for longer stretches.

Maybe Landry…In years past they may have just gone point Book, but I don’t think Monty will do it this year. Perfect opportunity to see what DWJ can do.

Dame is out and Simons is now questionable...might not make much of a difference if both are out.

Kyrie Being Kyrie...

KD fire sale as their implosion goes full super nova, is my prediction...(well, maybe not the fire sale...but him forcing a trade...)
He's pretty much radioactive now. I can't see where a serious contender would touch him.

The Lakers? Oh wait, you said serious. :lol:

But they are walking as well over thin ice with “ LA Westbrook : Take Two” going nowhere as well, a Kyrie / Russell, swap could be the last available move for both sides.

And by the way, another swap interesting to see, would be te Nets trading KD for KAT: They can’t rebuild, they need size, and Towns would provide the same scoring punch KD does, at a younger age.

And Minnesota replacing Towns for KD, pairing him with Gobert and Edwards…

So with CamJ out for what I’m sure will be awhile, would Crowder come back and start for us? I’d still plan to trade him, but the fact he’s not playing is pretty ridiculous. I don’t really care what agreement we came to, we should tell him he needs to show up if he wants to get paid.

Crowder is too petty. Jones needs to make a move before the Suns are starting Okogie at PF.

He’d show up if we stopped paying him

If true I wonder if Cam would slow play it since he’s got a contract coming up..or would he want to get back out there to drive the price higher?

Unless it's really bad, I think it'll be the shorter turnaround time having been through that procedure myself.

Fuck Jae Crowder. I’d rather go 4 on 5

This. You can't go back home again.

Probably should just sign Melo. We could trade for Harrison Barnes but with this news our leverage probably took a dip.

I've been thinking the past few days how well things have been working and how we may be gaining leverage since there's been no dropoff without Jae, but that all seems to have gone out the window.

Just tell Jae that he either plays for us or he plays for nobody until after June 30 when his contract ends.

I think all you’d have to do is start fining him for not showing up and he’d show up.

I do think this is a perfect time to sign Melo though.
