    We don't need Gobert. All of our core pieces are good defenders. We need more prime time offense, but not a 1 way player at the sacrifice of our identity. After Giannis and young franchise players, not too many fit that bill. Holiday and Oladipo are the 2 that I think we could get here in the next year or 2

    again, short of Giannis
    let's see how he recovers next year but oladipo looks poised to become one of the worst contracts in the league i think.

    agreed on gobert, we have good defenders and he can't hit a three.

    i'm not enamored with any of the non-kawhi/non-giannis 2021 free agents. maybe josh richardson? he has a team option for 10 million i imagine he'll decline. he looked like the second-best sixer in the celtics series. two way player that can shoot and create his own shot to some extent.

    here is my real question though... i think ican see a path to oladipo (especially over a guy like beal).. i just think the cost for victor is much better and the contract situation lines up perfectly... I also think Indiana would take Powell and filler for it.... but my real question is...

    i keep hearing gobert.. do you think he truly fits..?

    Giannis isn't coming here unless there's another A-lister plus Pascal. And I don't mean an aging Lowry. He's not coming here to get beaten by the Heat or Celtics or Nets....he may not be a front runner but he's not starting from mediocre or he might as well stay where he is (and he might)

    Fred is staying guys. The only impact his shooting struggles in the playoffs might have is making him cheaper for us. So yay?

    Same with Pascal. There is a plan. They are not going to bail on it based on results from what is and has always been a placeholder season (this is true of next season too so hold onto your hats for more hot takes based on that as well). Ideally the target is Giannis but they will keep the door open for someone else as well, whether it is a lower class star like Oladipo or Gobert or they get lucky and Kawhi gets sick of LA and pines for a return to his past successes (LOL that one’s a long shot). This season and next were always about giving Pascal and FVV and OG room to grow so they know what they have in their core when the decision point comes that offseason. Get ready for a lot more of it.
