    You know what else is a great use of goat milk? Ice cream. I kid* you not. I recently had tahini-flavoured goat's milk ice-cream recently and it's maybe the most delicious thing in a cone I've ever...

    My problem is I don't see Drummond having a much higher upside than who he is right now. Maybe he gets a consistent foul shot. Maybe gets a bit smarter on defense. Meanwhile JV has been putting in...

    Oh, weird. Trade machine is showing most of the changes to Sacramento's roster but still shows Casspi on there. Nevermind, then.

    So with Sacramento apparently blowing up their season rather than going for that last playoff spot, they've got some depth SFs we could use: particularly Barnes or Casspi. Maybe Barnes for Sullinger...

    Given the parameters of the question (Millsap for Patterson/Ross/first), I'd rather the trade that we got. Patterson plus another defensively capable stretch PF is, IMO, the lineup that presents the...

    Heh, I noticed that back on draft night, and googling the two names shows that others have made that connection too.

    That's one of the fastest 17-point comebacks I've ever seen... less than 5 minutes?

    I'm not sure about that. With a superior help defender to put along side him, I think it actually makes it easier for the team to roll with JV/Ibaka down the stretch of games. I think we'll also see...

    I don't expect it to be used a lot, but I'm also a little intrigued about seeing a few minutes of Ibaka + Bebe. Against a lineup with little perimeter threat, the shot-blocking intimidation would be...

    Yeah, I'll miss him. I'll always have a soft-spot for him, if for no other reason than that this was the one time I actually called the Raptors draft pick right (although I thought they'd trade down...

    I'm still amazed at the price. I thought this was one where Ujiri was going to need to wait it out, and then end up giving up Ross+Poeltl (or maybe Siakam or Bebe) + the better of our picks at the...

    Yeah, this is what I've been all about with the idea of acquiring Ibaka. For me, this is the ultimate counter to some of Cleveland's most problematic lineups.

    Never really expected us to get Millsap, but unfortunately with him off the table the price for other good PFs (ie. Ibaka) has just gone up. I was hoping for an active market for Millsap that enabled...

    I can certainly respect that perspective, but I disagree for a couple reasons:

    Firstly, we're almost inevitably capped out for the foreseeable future, so how much we're over the cap isn't a huge...

    While I don't think the Ibaka/Hezonja trade you floated above is realistic, a package based around Ross and their choice of Siakam or Poeltl would be very intriguing for them, because it essentially...

    I don't see it as that huge of an adjustment. Lowry/DeRozan/Millsap lineups will work essentially like Lowry/DeRozan/Patterson lineups do now, but with better spacing as Millsap draws a little more...

    In a scenario where we traded Patterson, and say Millsap left in the offseason, there's not really any plausible scenario where we could get Patterson back in the offseason, is there?

    Yeah, I was just making a pithy comment in response to another pithy comment; I don't blame DeRozan any more than any of the other starters, they're just getting vastly outplayed as a unit.

    Poeltl hasn't actually grabbed any rebounds yet, but he actually boxes out and has made a difference on the board in that regards.
