re: Just for fun: NBADraft.net and DraftExpress recent mocks. - corndeaux
Jonathan Tjarks on Robert Carter III of Maryland. Not a lottery pick, but a guy, according to Tjarks, worth keeping an eye on in the 2nd round. [link=(http://patternofbasketball.blogspot.com/2016/02/robert-carter-iii.html)]LINK[/link] [quote]Carter is a prototype small-ball 5 A generation a...

re: Stat of the day. - corndeaux
Yeah. This team's problem is that it just doesn't fit together. You can play Anderson, but you need defensive cover. You can play Asik, but you need 4 shooters with him. And it's not just those 2 guys either. Injuries expose this exponentially, but its still there with #fullsquad. They just ...

re: Which Ryno trade do you like the best? - corndeaux
Nate Duncan trade deadline pod part 2 had Anderson to Toronto for their own 2016 1st, 2017 2nd, Scola, Nogueria, Bennett. Not an awful deal for the Pels, Nogueria might be useful down the line. With Derozan being UFA, I don't see them giving up a likely lottery pick to get Anderson, also an UFA. ...

re: How many minutes per game do AD and Jrue play together? - corndeaux
[quote]I could have sworn that Joel said something like 15mpg last week[/quote] 19MPG since January 1, which is the same as Anderson/Davis. Holiday/Anderson/Davis is the best trio for the Pels and is only at 15 MPG since 1/1. Another potent trio is Jrue/Evans/Davis- only 9MPG (tons of injury nois...

[quote]If you take 9.7% of the current cap, you get 6.8 million. All the sudden Asik's contract looks reasonable. [/quote] It's not that the deal is unreasonable for a starting 5, it's that it's unreasonable for a guy that only plays 17 MPG. Why you commit that many years to not one guy like th...

re: Bucks looking to blow it up...how do the Pels get Middleton? - corndeaux
I'd do Holiday/Evans for Middleton/Mayo/MCW. If they're dumb enough to give Middleton up, you absolutely give them Holiday. Middleton can play (21/4.5/4.5 the last month and at least above average defense). ETA: Davis/Middleton has the makings of the beginnings of an identity for this team. E...

re: Tom Ziller's top 100 free agents of 2016 - corndeaux
Yup, to say nothing of the odd roster construction. Given the lack of prospects, I've also been wondering why they chose to sign mid career washouts instead of trying a few young, D League guys. Especially at the 3. Success rate wouldn't have been any worse and theres at least a chance at upside as ...

Paying $9-11M (under a $90+M cap) for the next 4 years for that guy playing ~25MPG is fine. Still a flawed player, but you'r...

[quote]decent mid level SF.[/quote] I'd be surprised if a team gives up a decent mid level SF for an expiring Anderson (that Lowe Washington trade is a no brainer for the Pels if they are thinking beyond the next 4 months). Same thing with his cap space this summer. SFs are Hamilton tickets right...

re: #StartJrue - corndeaux
[quote]The difference is the amount of minutes. Last night Jrue played 23 minutes compared to Cole's 30 minutes and Dejean-Jones' 35 minutes. There is absolutely no reason Dejean Jones should play 12 more minutes than Holiday. That's a huge problem. Jrue was clearly our best guard last night, and ha...
