Killian Hayes, anyone? Not a great shooter, but would be decent off the bench ...

4 players that weren’t in the rotation
Just so we can keep Little who is also not in the rotation? And add a player we have no use for in Roddy? We have no need for a 6’4 PF who can’t shoot.

I was excited to see we were making a trade and getting O’Neale, until I saw we gave up 4 players.

Even with Little we would’ve had to use 2 more players(unless one was Okogie or Lee). You also have to factor in what we do with the 2 open roster spots. We still have a TPE and we could still trade Little for 5 more minutes. We also keep Little to trade next year if we want.

Well, you guys got what you wanted. I hope O'Neale is as good as you guys say he is. I am disappointed in losing all four of those players. They all had potential in different areas. Nobody mentioned Goodwin but he started out like gang busters defensively in preseason and then just steadily fell off from there and couldn't shoot. I'm just glad we still have Okogie.

All 4 of those players played like they didn't know what their role was. I won't miss any of them.

Bol bol had passed Metu and KBD in the rotation. Yuta was maybe our 15th man. Goodwin was completely out too. I don’t care about any of those 4 guys…maybe KBD a little. We traded our 12-15 guys for a 7th guy, a new 15th guy and 2 roster spots that will hopefully be top 10 guys for us.

Were any of those 4 helping us win a title?

KBD was really booty juice. Metu at least showed some pop at times on offense. Yuta might stick on team willing to live with his defense. Goodwin was tough, but was stuck behind a lot of depth. Hopefully O'Neal pans out and Roddy sticks.

Not up to date with the buyout market. Anyone who moves the needle for us?

Let’s hope the new guys pan out better than these FAs we signed in the offseason that everyone was excited about.

Maybe Biyombo for center depth?

At least with Bizzy I feel like we know what we can get and expect out of him. Always liked him for the roll he played.

Nets fans are saying Royce "pump fake, side dribble" is one of the deadliest moves in the game lol
