Eric Bledsoe needs to stay: SF, PF, C upgrades
I kinda wish we could have gotten Adams somehow and kept Jrue but Bledsoe still helps fill that veteran void and tenacity that Jrue brought. We also need a vet to help groom NAW/ Lewis.

Lonzo and JJ need to be moved at or by the end of this season. We need more defensive help at SF and PF. I'd much rather slide Ingram to SG and use those assets for a defensive big.

Some people want to trade for a SG so just wondering what y'all think? Shooter or 3&D/ defensive big?

Bledsoe is a really good second team guard. No reason to move him. He has no value. He’s a bench player for a contender.

Also don’t move JJ. Be patient. Dudes in a slump and he’s the best shooter on the team.

Agreed. Safe to say his history of shooting give him time to get through it.

Shooter/3&D is more important than a defensive big.

At this point, we need production off our bench guys (Hart, Redick, Melli)

tonight: 8/24 from the field, 3/15 from 3
that won't cut it come playoff time. Making just 2 more 3s could have been the difference.

The ideal thing is having Bledsoe coming off the bench IMHO. Let the ball flow through him instead of shoving him into a corner or occasionally running the point.

We need more SF and PF depth. Would be nice to be more athletic off the bench at those positions. We have plenty of Guard depth and Hayes is serviceable at the C position as he continues to develop. The issue we have with smaller lineups is we don't have significant athleticism or 3pt shooting off the bench especially in the backcourt.

I mean Bledsoe will be gone at some point a year from now.

He's untouchable. Toronto had several opportunities to make big trades for star players but they've always had a hard no stance in including him in any trades.

Hart plays extremely hard but his rotations and shooting leaves a lot to be desired. I just dont see how you pay an undersized, mediocre shooting glue guy the full MLE. When I see him and JJ checking in I cringe. Wish J.Hart was even a mildly better shooter or more reliable defensively

Griff needs to call up Houston. Lonzo for PJ Tucker and Danuel House works perfectly for both of us.

He has a poison pill contract. It’s almost impossible to trade for him right now with how the salaries work with that kind of contract.

NAW may have something to say about that before the season is over.

He is worthless when he is "in a slump."

When he gets out of the slump people will realize how much he helps us. I’m fine trading him though if we can get a younger piece and can send him to a contender. I want him to have that opportunity and we need young assets.

We aren't trading JJ. JJ makes a couple more shots this season aand the pels have three more Ws.

We aren't trading him at all or just aren't trading him without his opinion?

I love JJ and think he has had a great career. I also understand that he is 36 years old and that he may be better fitted on a contender anyway.

We brought him in as a veteran to help our younger guys shoot better/ learn things. Lonzo can't be taught much more and NAW has a shot and is already a better defender than JJ. We aren't winning a championship this year and JJ is walking at the end of the year.

Take any assets you can get for Lonzo/ JJ and let NAW/ Kira get a larger run in the backcourt.

I would love to somehow send Lonzo and Melli to Houston for PJ Tucker and either House/ McLemore.
