Nice to see Dario playing well. Consistency from now til the trade deadline will be important to determine if he can give us anything down the stretch. I'm worried about gis lateral movement. Not sure when/if that comes back.

CP Hit some threes which I liked to see. Would have like to see him a bit more aggressive though.

Big no for me on Rozier. Unless it's like a Shamet swap of some sort.

McDaniels looked decent. Not sure what I'd give up for him though.

Looking forward to seeing what we look like against the Mavs on Thursday.

Solid win against a team as decimated as ours.

Lemme tell ya, Rozier aint doin nothing for me.
Who the hell else was there to defend? Plumlee?! Lol. Look I’m not talking the guy up like he is a star. But I’d take him over CP3. Rozier can ball.

So is it too late to fire Monty and tank the season?

Wow, 5th already. Things can change so fast. If we get Ayton and Book back, it feels like this team is due for a run. Nice to see both of our centers have good games, plus Dario. CamJ looks amazing since he has come back. I really hope we can keep him.

These standings are pretty nuts. We could be out of the play-in in a few games, or we could be in 3rd. Are you afraid of the Sacramento Kings? I'm not.

fun fact: we’re 8-0 against our pacific division rivals.

We’ve beat the warriors 3x, the clippers and lakers twice each and Sacto once. Pretty impressive for such a shit season.

You never heard me call for doing either. I never said we should tank and I never said to fire Monty before the end of the season.

Hopefully Ishbia will be willing to pay the extra amount he'll command this summer in order to correct the mistake Sarver/Jones made last summer.

Cam has looked fantastic, but I'd love to see him stay on the court for the rest of the year. Injury history gives me pause about forking out big money

After the season is over is how I understood it. Not before the end of the season.

Hopefully Ishbia will be willing to correct the mistake Sarver/Jones made last summer in matching DA’s max deal instead of sign and trading him in advance
I agree

Cam has not been able to stay healthy or consistently productive long enough to command Mikal money, sorry.

The best ability is availability and he hasn’t been available enough to warrant that contract.

I felt like the Suns reported offer was very generous. If he can stay healthy through the end of the year I would offer him that same contract again or look to move either him or Mikal in an upgrade for a star

So, you would let him walk if he gets a contract offer better then what you think he deserves?

Btw, I thought this was interesting, in a small sample size.

I would not let it get to that if at all possible. Please do not go DA pt2. If you can’t agree on a number, find a sign and trade and get creative to get a return you deem acceptable.

Cams great, but he’s a role player, and one that’s been injured a lot. Overpaying for those will kill your chances to pair Booker with a real difference maker. We already have 1 player not living anywhere near expectations of his contract (DA), and another who is great (Mikal) but again is a high dollar role player.
