re: League Rumors Thread 6/19 - GOP_Tiger
If we end up drafting in the top half of the first round, he's the player who I think offers the most upside to us. Not that we should spend #4 on him, but if we were to do the Atlanta trade, then I'd definitely want us to use one of those on him. To me, the ability to get Hayes at #8 and then d...

re: Pels supposed intrigued with Kevin Love still - GOP_Tiger
Since I didn't watch much Cavs basketball last year (which of you did?), can Love still run at all? I'm honestly trying to figure out if he fits into our offense, and I think how well he runs the floor now is important to that....

re: League Rumors Thread 6/19 - GOP_Tiger
So, 538 fired up their computer to project the careers of those drafted, using college stats and measureables -- but then they somehow add back into the formula a scout's ranking? Seems to defeat the point. Also, they didn't have enough data to rate Garland, and they also didn't rate foreign playe...

re: Question about Jalen Cook Basketball Scholarship - GOP_Tiger
Here's a longer reply. He didn't have a football offer from us. If he were to join the football team his first year, he'd count against our 25 signees, and we don't want that, so there's no way that he'd play football his first year at LSU. If, after that, he wanted to play football, I'm sure h...

[quote]You all don't think Griffin can secure better players with that money during those years? Pels are finally at a place where they have an amazing young core and tons of cap space to augment it later and you want to add a declining and injury-prone bloated contract to that mix?

re: For those thinking Barrett to NYK is a lock - GOP_Tiger
What all this smoke means is that there's absolutely no way that the #4 pick gets moved until we are on the clock. We may get some potential deals lined up, but they will obviously be contingent on the player who is available at that spot....

re: Did Griff set Lakers up by not taking Kuzma - GOP_Tiger
Yeah, this isn't about Griff doing something brilliant so much as Pelinka being an idiot. Even the fact that Pelinka is now shopping for 2nd-round picks is silly. Pelinka could easily have negotiated the trade for one of our picks this year in exchange for one of their next year or something. H...

re: Lets Consolidate the Talk for #4 - GOP_Tiger
I now think that it's unlikely that we actually draft the #4 pick. My understanding is that there is still about $18 million in salary cap room left in the AD trade (which this pick is part of). If we trade the pick for a player with a cap hit of $18 million or less, that won't affect our cap avai...

[quote]Cool, so that further proves my point of how low the probability of that #4 overall pick being as good as Turner.[/quote] Right. The funny thing is that people here don't think that Indiana can figure that out too. If Turner is worth more than the #4 pick, then we're going to have to giv...
