    So ... is it time NOW to consider a different game plan? Maybe something different?

    Maybe making adaptions to the offensive and defensive game plan? Maybe looking at more FVV and less Corey? More Powell instead of Carroll? More Bebe or Poetl at PF instead of Siakam or Sully?

    I am beginning to become OK with the idea of moving Carroll, CoJo and/or Siakam in the off season or earlier.

    Honestly, the worst part about this slump for me isn't the losing or us playing badly. It's us still being able to win these games but throwing them away anyways. DD being hurt or not (to me at least) doesn't make a lick of difference in this case given we were already slumping before he got hurt.
    Norm and Delon taking Carroll and Corey's minutes should be a starting point. But both should be traded for players who might actually help. I like VanFleek but he is simply too small and Wright has already shown when he actually got some damn minutes (friggin Casey) that he is better than either CJ or FVV. Of course we don't even need to discuss how Powell is better than the carcass of DC but enough is enough with Casey's experience over results philosphy.

    Then the other glaring hole is having no interior defence with Biz gone, a simple solution would be to bring on Larry Sanders for peanuts. Just doing those 2 things would make a BIG difference in how we're playing right now and we may actually start resembling a decent team like we were last year. That's not even taken into account what we may get back for Corey or Carroll (which for DC admittingly would likely be scraps) and whatever other bigger trades Masai may execute. But those tweaks are immediate tweaks I think we MUST make before this thing totally implodes.

    Still no range and still cannot defend his position after 8 years in the league, goodness gracious.

    Your boy is not bigger than the franchise, I hope you realize that. Nobody is untradable especially a player like Derozan. He is nowhere near those generational talents that had graced the top teams in this league. He is easily replaceable.

    Just shows how far we've fallen when we can't beat ORL n the Hawks are beating them down badly right now.

    I liked Larry Sanders but I have no idea how good/ready he is now to play and help us? Seems like Boston could use the old Larry and they've worked him out recently and not signed him. Similar situation in gsw camp. Makes we wonder that maybe he's not quite there atm.

    Edit: I suppose celts could wait closer to the deadline to see how things shape up and whether they have a roster spot? I guess they ditch James young to open a roster spot?
