re: Name one player who you do not want to be on the team next year


You really think we've been "tanking" this year?

We probably still would have been pretty bad even if Gordon was healthy this year, but that max contract will prevent us from moving forward if he continues to miss games and fail to put up numbers like he should. He's the biggest problem with our team right now. Other than that, people like Vasquez, Aminu, and Lopez that people have said they want off the team could be great in a back up role for this team. We aren't paying any of them all that much so I'm sure we'll probably see that for at least 1-2 of those 3 guys

And how many new players can we get each year? We gonna have >80% roster turnover? Seems legit.

Henry and Thomas are about the only guys I see with no real value to the franchise moving forward.

Well, not losing games on purpose but by putting this shitty team together, we gave no shits about winning much. Just advertising guys like gravy, lopez, aminu and maturing ad, rivers, roberts..... All while setting up to have major cap space and options this summer.

EG (if we can get some kind of decent value for him).

Aminu hands down. You've got to have offense and shooting from your 3 in today's NBA and he's probably the worst offensive 3 in the league. Lopez is a great value for his price, don't understand the problems with him at all. I either want Roberts off the team or playing at most 5 minutes a game. Henry needs to leave as well but he doesn't play as much as aminu so it doesn't matter. I sincerely hope everyone who ways Gordon is doing so with the caveat that we get a could trade for him

I think that's the problem. You won't get much value for him in the offseason.

Soooo, which would you rather, EG back on the team or Gordon gone with little to nothing in return?

We have a lot of players that get more playing time than they should, but that doesn't mean I want them off the team, we just need more talent around them so they have a more limited role

Exactly. I think people are getting "Which player do you not want to be on the team next year" confused with "Which position do you want to see upgraded." Players like Lopez and GV are on decent deals, and would be good as back ups, but just shouldn't be getting as many minutes as they are now. If Aminu could be brought back at a decent amount, I wouldn't mind that either, just not as a starter.

I don't care either way with Gordon at this point. If they trade him, I just hope they get decent value for him, and don't just give him away. If he stays, his bitch arse better get in line.

I think Xavier and Lance Thomas are fair answers as well.
