Ya we could still make another trade with Little…I’d also just hold onto him. He’d be a tradable asset next year too

Metu, Yuta, and KBD were our big free agent haul and didn't last a season lol. At least Roddy's on a rookie contract so he's locked up, maybe there's some development there.

We still have the bigger one. But we had to take Roddy into the TPE for salary purposes. He fits in the 5 million Saric TPE that was expiring today.

Royce O'neale is definitely battle tested
I used to be a hater in our Jazz battles and would live with him getting the shots and can remember times being annoyed when he scored lol

He does play bigger than his size so that's cool but we need actual front line size/athleticism

Out of the departees, wish Metu solid shooting had continued cause he showed that he could be active on the glass

I'm gonna miss Metu. Wish he would have gotten more minutes.

Don't have an opinion on Roddy
I've ignored him all year in fantasy despite the load of injuries....

Guess I would see him for myself if he gets any run

I'm a bit sad we're shipping out KBD. We didn't get much from him, but I think he was better than he showed for us so far. I think he was starting to figure things out. Maybe the writing was on the wall when KD was yelling at him for messing up and not understanding the defensive schemes.

I’d bet money one of those spots goes to Biz. Probably the best of the potential bigs on the market.

Unfortunate, they obviously knew they had not earned Vogel trust. Bol basically playing their F spot
Yuta just flamed out
KBD at least showed little signs but both of them weren't strong enough with the ball which frustrated me

Horrible trade…giving up 4 (!) players we just signed/acquired last summer, plus picks and swaps…for this???
