Free Agency: We Need Perimeter Shooters
The team, as of right now, is one of the biggest/toughest teams inside of the paint. We still need to stay balanced and add some perimeter shooters (Mirotic would’ve been able to do some serious damage with this team)

-Jimmy Butler: needs the ball in his hands. not the best fit.

-Khris Middleton: he’ll likely resign with the Bucks

-Danny Green: can be streaky, but I think he’d fit in perfectly

-JJ Reddick: he really stepped it up this year. older, so the ceiling isn’t as high, but more consistent.

Bojan Bogdanovic, Brook Lopez, Malcolm Brogdon, Nikola Mirotic, Terrence Ross, Reggie Bullock, and Wayne Ellington are some more shooters that will be on the market.

Love Bojan and Ross as possible players we can lure.

Ariza is also out there this FA. That guy does not age.

I don't think we need to get rid of Moore, but I would rather see him at SG more than anything off the bench. I hated lineups with him at SF.

Tobias Harris is the best possible FA addition this offseason. He's effectively an All-NBA level Niko.

re: Free Agency: We Need Perimeter Shooters
I like the idea of seeing if you could bring in Bullock and Ellington on sizeable 1 year deals like Philly did with Redick.

Bojan is probably going to get paid more than I would want to give him.

Watching the Toronto series, he reminded me of Bad Tyrec at times.

That is his role, he should never have to be the starting 3. If he can give us 20 minutes off the bench and occasionally have one of his hot nights and score 15+ we will be in great shape.

Money-wise how is any of this doable?

Must play defense also. A liability if only a shooter.

How would Kemba Walker fit in with Jrue?
