    Details details lol

    A bunch of players will and have been moved, so all the other teams have a ton of minutes to hand out?
    Our bench so so deep, no one can be bumped?
    Why would someone come here? They want a chip
    Can you name me a player available we would plug in ahead of a regular rotation player here?

    We are one of the deepest teams in the league, other teams will have bigger roles to offer. And you are kidding yourself if you think the Raptors are viewed as contenders on the same level as teams like the Lakers and Clippers or even worse teams like Houston or Philly or Miami, who likely also have those bigger roles to offer (though Philly probably already made their fringe move at the deadline).

      We need to use pink font here when someone is trying to be sarcastic. It works really well on other forums and saves a lot of confusion where someone takes you seriously but shouldn't. Clearly the eyeroll emoji doesn't do it

        Clips add another guy with a questionable locker room past. Seems they are just getting whoever may be an option of the lakers to deny them adding guys.
        Harrell, Morris, Jackson locker room now lets see if they get J.R or lance next.

            (Good signing or bad aside in this case) how do teams keep adding when we can't because we're evidently, too deep lol

            Or is it cap?
            Kyle and Siakam make more than lebron/AD or Kawhi/George. Nope.
            Or is it the next wave Gasol and Serge making more than their 2nd tier?

              Nets’ Kyrie Irving out indefinitely with shoulder injury

              Irving decided the day that Durant was going to miss the season, that he would miss a bunch of it as well. No heart.

                Miami has a pretty soft schedule to end the season and Toronto and Philly are the only east contenders with major west coast games left.

                  called this months ago. Said if nets wernt in a good spot in standing Kyrie would get "injuried" so his reputation didnt take a hit

                    They are signing them to minimum deals, any team over the cap can sign players to minimum deals

                    • Reggie Jackson isn't going to make the Clippers better. He's at worst going to have the same impact that Lin had for Toronto which was negligible. Actually Lin was pretty bad in Toronto. McCaw was a better player - which should say a lot.

                      The bigger story though is how much of a mess the Piston's front office is. Their three best players were Griffin, Drummond and Jackson. Jackson was bought out. Drummond was acquired for basically a 2nd rounder. And Griffin has this huge contract but is perennially injured. If they can unload his deal it would be for more trash contracts.

                      Their asset management has been horrible. They even gave Casey of all guys a 5 year contract. What morons.

                      They have so much cap space now though.. unfortunately for them in a year with like no great free agents. Watch them end up giving max contracts to Eric Gordon and Tristan Thompson.

                            We certainly will have a tougher schedule than we saw during that winning streak. We've done a great job beating up the sub 500 teams. I'm thinking we may be in for a bumpier ride. Fortunately both Boston and the Bucks have equal or tougher schedules than us, It's Miami and the 76'ers that have the soft schedules. Philly hasn't been able to win consistently on the road so it may not help them as much as Miami.

                                Well it’s major in terms of how long they are on the road. But they get Denver to start...then it’s murderers row in Phoenix, GSW and the once again Excremento Kings with the last stop on the trip a visit with the Mormons in Salt Lake City to end it.

                                5 games in 9 days and only the last game vs the Mormons is a B2B. They get a day off between every game except in Utah. After two weeks on the road Utah looks like a schedule loss.

                                With a win to kick off the trip against Denver they could go 4 and 1 ...Post the all star break the tank brigade is in full regale. You can bet that all those rookies and 2nd round picks who need reps to see what they have will be playing more minutes on the Kings warriors and suns.

                                3 and 2 isn’t that bad either.
