    Masai will make a move if and when there is a move to be made. You need a dance partner. He's not going to lose a trade in desperation.
    The opposite of making a trade in desperation is not making any deals because you either overvalue your guys, want to win every trade, or are afraid to take even calculated risks.

    Marquese Chriss was acquired on draft night for assets we could likely have matched or beaten. Tobias Harris was acquired for spare parts. Thaddeus Young was traded for the 20th pick and a protected second rounder.

    Barring a real breakout by Siakam, if we go into the playoffs with the squad we currently have, I think you have to wonder whether Masai is falling prey to a combination of risk aversion, overvaluing assets, or simple complacency.

    • Come on, DanH...no projected Net Rating (Per 100 Poss) for each of those lineups?

        Dan, I think the odds of Carroll playing less than 30mpg are close to zero.
        He said big minutes at the 4. Obviously that means big minutes compared to his usual couple of minutes per game. He can't play actual big minutes at the 4 with Patterson playing so many there, unless he completely gives up on the concept of centres and plays PP 12+ MPG at C. With all the wing depth we have, the best way to utilize Carroll is to give him minutes at the 4 and scale back his SF minutes (and overall minutes) to keep him fresh to fight bigger guys, while unlocking opportunities for Ross/Powell.

          Yeah, I'm lazy today.

          Shameless plug time! If you are interested in some lineup projections from last week (spoiler alert, some of these address Sully, which is obviously irrelevant now) take a look at an article I did up to prep for the season.

            If Carroll ends up playing a lot of PF then we'll see Powell taking a chunk of Carroll's minutes at SF like last season. Hard to see Powell & Ross splitting 28 minutes indefinitely. Casey's small ball dream will be alive and well.

            • If Stan Van Gundy plays Tobias at the 4 you'll probably see Casey get a little funke with his lineups.

                You're right, most all of them can't guard the perimeter and some have no post game, no shot and can't hit free throws.
