Very winnable game tonight against a team that consistently has played down to weaker opponents this season. Have to give consistent effort which it seems this team doesn't lack. Lets go!

If any of you were questioning why Billy Hernangomez can't be a center in the NBA, tonight is a perfect showcase. Unfortunately he just has negative defensive tendencies and IQ. Shame because offensively he has a ton of skill.

I am ready for 85% of this roster to change to bad contracts and future picks.

Holding out hope that Mike sells.

Well... I guess Monk is totally out of the rotation now. So frustrating. Makes me not want to watch. I don’t get it.

Terry, Devonte, PJ, Miles, Bacon, and Malik are the only ones I hope we'd care to carry over but I don't care if the others play (a good bit). In that regard, if we swapped out a handful of our expiring or near expiring contracts for value adding bigs or a dynamic shooting guard, then I am just as happy to have that player (and contract) help these guys build upon what they have into next year. Count me completely out of just playing the youth only and letting them sink or swim. History shows they sink. Bottom line is that I'd rather us develop guys picked 10th - 50th vs. going full shitshow and hoping for a top 3 player that might not pan out and never knowing if he would because he'd be landing on a team that practices losing.

Devonte and pj

Terry I would trade for one of those decreasing protections first to an iffy team trying to make noise (Orlando) but I really like him.

Miles I would trade for the same type of deal.

Adam is actually right with his take, I am just sick of this team.

Holding out hope that Mike sells.

Trade Monk (preferably to Memphis just because I want to see if he could get right with Ja). It’s clear as day that he isn’t in the future plans, get an asset for him if this is the case. Rotting on the bench does him or us any good so I hope something is in the works in this regard.

I wonder if he isn't a jerk behind the scenes. Only angle that makes any sense even though I would be pretty surprised by that. He seems like a cool dude that is well liked by the other players.

The other angle is that there is some Pop approach JB is trying to establish explicit control. Not sure if Malik either responds well or unwell to it but it might have less to do w/ what Malik is putting out there and more about what can be put/pushed through him for some larger benefit.

You could tell as soon as Bacon came into the game for the first time tonight that he wasn't there mentally. Why is he playing over Monk? Batum I can understand because of the whole France thing. But if Batum doesn't go roght back to the bench after France then IDK what we are thinking. Hope we ship Monk out of town so he gets a fair shake.

This is as old as Marvin has ever looked to me on the court. And oddly, it's the greatest proof ever that all the speculation that Biz was 30 when he was drafted at 18 was crap.  Dude looks energy-wise like he's one of the young guns out there.

He and Ja would be so solid I think. We just seem to not be the team for him, for whatever reason. From my eye test... we look the best when he’s in the game making plays. I have no doubt that with more minutes, it would result in better play for us. But instead, we just kill his confidence for no reason. Everyone is allowed to make mistakes, but Monk. I feel like he hardly has a chance to make a mistake now though.

I don't know Mitch, MKG is not allowed to see the floor practically ever this year, that's a guy that could do no wrong under the prior regime. Cody Martin saw minutes but now he's gone the way of the dodo bird. Willy sees no appreciable time, Biz' nose break excluded.  I'd say it's a coaching pattern, not just something targeting Monk. Monk is the most obvious however as a lot of us want to see him get burn.  My honest guess is that coach sees this as some trade off and he wants to see more Bacon or Miles in that position (of 3) than Monk. I hope that changes because I have liked Monk more than both of those guys this year to date.
