Agreed. He, or more accurately his agent, went bust on that gamble....

re: Offical Trade Deadline Thread 2017 - HickfawJim1
I think Boston killed the deadline. Teams were too gun shy, and depending on the return on PG-13 and/or Butler to balance out asset values in comparison to the Cousins trade. ...

re: Pels working out Guards. - HickfawJim1
Stein was on the Lowe Post pod this morning, and they alluded to Cuban wanting to acquire picks in this years draft, and hold on to their young assets. Sounds like they're going into rebuild mode....

re: Pels have signed Donatas Motiejunas to a 1-year deal - HickfawJim1
[quote]The teams use their own doctors. It would be up to Brooklyn if they wanted to ignore the issues and sign him anyway. [/quote] Exactly. It's clear that the Benson brain trust doesn't put as much stock into medical evaluations as other franchises. Just look at how the Saints got Drew....

Plus, we'll likely have a top 4 - 5 pick this summer anyway. He wouldn't have to tank because Demps and Gentry did it for him....

re: Free agent acquisitions that make sense and realistic - HickfawJim1
[quote]I found that last point fascinating. Basically, the guy said that GMs look at a team like Boston and are willing to offer less for their guards than they would in a vacuum because they know Boston has tons of them and have to unload them. So, if we look like we don't need to unload Asik or Aj...

re: #5 pick for Jimmy Butler? - HickfawJim1
I would trade Jrue in a heartbeat. I love the guy, but he is (somewhat) replaceable. We saw this season that you only need a serviceable point guard to smoothly run Gentry's system. ...

re: Chad Ford really talking up Chriss, says he's a big riser... - HickfawJim1
Maybe I'm being overly optimistic, or I'm just blinded by the joy of actually having a pick this year, but it feels like we're getting a really good player no matter who is there at #6. This draft may not be that deep, but the top 7 has some serious talent....

re: Up to 24 teams could have max space. Trade market? - HickfawJim1
I know this name has been thrown around on here a lot in the past, but what do you guys think of a Tyreke for Wilson Chandler swap? Both guys are coming off pretty serious knee injuries, and their trade value is at an all time low. Maybe Denver would be willing to take on Tyreke's expiring contract ...

re: Let's talk Roster Construction / Theory - HickfawJim1
My theory about roster construction is that there is no such thing as an ideal roster make-up. There are different paths to contention, and the "ideal" path is the one most readily available. In our case we need to find another top 25 player to pair with AD. You can't win a championship without a su...

re: Dell's Biggest Mistake - HickfawJim1
Steph and Klay didn't really hit their stride until AD's rookie year, plus that first year post CP3 was always going to be a tank year, so things probably work out the same. ...
