Contend for what?

This team has very little talent.


I think we have little star power. But we’re actually pretty talented. If we flip our expirings for assets whether it be first or 2nd rounders and draft correctly we can 100% be a consistent playoff team with the core that we have now in 3 years.

Strong disagree. But am hopeful I am proven incorrect

Holding out hope that Mike sells.

Im not taking on salary for 2nd round picks thats for damn sure. Like I said before, if MKG nets a 1st round pick somehow with a bad contract, then I can live with that.

In 3 years, I dont see why this team, with some growth, additional picks, and maybe a free agent or two 2 years down the road, couldnt be a contender - Top 4 in the East by our own definition.

If we are talking "what I don't get" why was a Martin twin in as a "all switching defense" lineup instead of mkg? He is clearly the better choice. If you are literally never going to play him, trade him.


Mike knows his expiring will be worth a lot in 3 months. Not going anywhere right now.

Tough times as Mike is still a very special player.

Yeah I don’t disagree. To be clear I was referring to a high rotation or 5th starter quality player + a 2nd pick. The salary Charlotte takes back expiring next season, plus Bird Rights. In that sense it’s a way to get a 1st quality return without asking for a 1st that I don’t expect teams to offer for MKG.

1sts in February are typically for shooting upgrades. I can see Marvin fetching a late 1st in the 25 to 30 range if Charlotte takes back maybe $10m in dead money for a fringe rotation player.

On the Bird rights angle, it's possible that is a FO consideration but with o ly their statements to go by, and most notable here is that we're not an NBA destination, I don't see them trading for an expiring with an expiring. At least not if there are any other options.

Lol at GSW and their skeleton crew beating Portland last night. Makes our win look even better.
