    The funny thing is Ellington isn't even shooting it as good as he normally does so far this year. And I read Teodosic wants to go back to Europe
    I relish negativity and disappointment. It is not healthy. Somebody buy me a pony.

    Think Robyn can shut his brother down, like use twins magic and know everything he's thinking before it happens?

    Ellington is obviously a perfect fit but will be highly coveted.

    I think if Atlanta does end up buying out JLin he'd be terrific.

    Brook always schools Robin.

    ....


    As for our buyout chances... I still have too many nightmares from the last several years .... multiple candidates all signing with Houston or with Philly. People are talking like we'll just happily get our top three/four choices on the buyout market and everything will be set. .... Come on. I hope I'm wrong but we'll probably be lucky if we get one. At least we've got Bouch.

    I swear back in the day you were allowed to have 13 guys. Has that changed to 14? Like I rather them have 14 it's more depth but I was just wondering
    I might be wrong, I think I heard 14 but I'm not entirely sure, it's possible that is 13 minimum still; I think there's a distinction between active and inactive on a given night and "averages" throughout the season. In in case I think they'll shoot to replenish back to the 14, which is what they had throughout the season.

    Jeremy Lins' playoff DRtg is atrocious

    Barely though. He's a career 38%, down to 36.8% this year. If he's on offence that creates good looks like ours, that will certainly go back up. Our problem hasn't been getting guys open, is having the spot-up knock down the shot. Ellington would do that.

    I also read that ATL is not planning on buying out or waiving anyone.

    I'm still pissed that the Bucks got Mirotic. That is precisely the kind of player we should have been pouncing on. With so many rosters spots open though, and us being more of a contender than last year, I dare to think the buyout market will be more fruitful this year. Hopefully by the next game will know more

    Ellington is the obvious target as a shooter, and would likely be the guy they use their tax-MLE on if anyone. Maybe Sauce gets a look too. I imagine they'll want someone with PF size though I hope it's not Markieff. Have to wait a bit to see what shakes out over the next few days.

    I could see them giving Malcolm Miller a contract - they like him and he was good in spot minutes last year, and he's recovered from his injury in the summer. But they probably need to add a third PG, maybe that's Loyd, maybe a buyout guy. Loyd has some NBA days left, so no rush there, could bridge one or two of the spots with 10-days as well to save a few bucks (and push some decisions closer to the March 1st buyout deadline). Could see Boucher getting a deal soon since he's almost out of NBA days.

    Lin and Ellington would be nice. Gives us 11 really good rotation guys again. And we do need a cheap old big out there somewhere for insurance

    One less opening for a while - Malcom Miller gets a 10 day
    If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

    If a players 3pt% is 100% but he only gets 6.5 PPG, how many threes is he likely taking lol
    This is where partial stats nowhere near tell a complete picture....

    Do Miller, brown, loyd etc just hang out a mississauga YMCA and wait until masai needs them back for a bit?

    The Grizz picked up Avery Bradley .. He is making peanuts in NBA terms at around 12M this year.. Next year its a team option with a guarantee for 2M....

    Would the Grizz just buy him out this year ? If they did.. he would be an excellent pickup

    In the world of the NBA nothing is beyond the scope of credulity.

    Robyn Lopez or Marcin Gortat - 3rd big, savvy and reliable when one of the bigs goes down

    Markieff Moris - back up PF (risk due to history but heard hes a good friend of Kyle), has a decent stroke from outside who can stretch the floor. He can be the bad guy for a contender.

    Omri Casspi - another scorer (36% career beyond 22 ft)

    Wayne Ellington - dead eye shooter, Raptors are desperate to have one

    Courtney Lee - another scorer and had played with Marc in the past

    Jeremy Lin or Ben Mclemore - both can play the PG or SG position
