Soooo...the trade deadline is for losers anyway.  Who's up for some buyout specials?!

 

Anybody interesting enough? Kanter, Ellington, Beasley, Lopez, Matthews, Markieffff?

 

It doesn't matter what the rumors say who's going where.  They rumored that we were gonna open up our Gasol present today, and the lie detector determined that that was a lie.

 

JR Smith for some fun? Gortat? Zeebo?

On the Frank Kaminsky front, if we buy Frank out his term here would be kind of sad. I genuinely believe at his best, Frank is a missing piece that we could desperately use right now. Prior to the season starting, I honestly thought with the new coaching staff and their points of emphasis, Frank would be our starting PF and make a jump on what was a pretty decent season last year, maybe be Mirotic level. Maybe someone elsewhere can get the best out of him.

I don't understand buying out Frank at all. I don't think he's Mirotic by any stretch or that he ever will be. I get letting him earn a bigger opportunity some where else. But he's legit depth for us the remainder of this season, and he can find a new team this off-season either way.

Think it's a made your bed thing with Frank.



Frank needs to perform when he's given floor time

Could be a matter of making sure everyone is on the same page and committed. I don't see anything from Frank that makes me think buyout, but if he's getting frustrated, it may be better to buyout rather than let it negatively impact the team. Wouldn't surprise me if we had a buyout candidate in mind to replace him.

My Mirotic comments were referring to a potential ceiling for Frank, thats all.

I think Frank needs to be a bit careful here. Unless his agent is saying that there's a landing spot at x if he can arrange a buy out, he should play out the string and find a spot in the summer.

If Markieff could hit 3's at the same clip as his brother in Boston he'd be a nice pickup.

In the category of how awkward this can possibly get to eventually...

Even as is, he'd help us off the bench. About the only improvement that can be made at this point.

I don't think Deandre is getting bought out

Frank Kaminsky is dead weight. He has had time to improve yet to me his has regressed. Nowhere close to what he was in college. I want no part in him being with our team.
