    I like Cespedes and he's better than prospects, but he's later 20's and has probably reached his ceiling production-wise.  Great news about the draft pick.

    I hope we're all wondering to ourselves 3 years from now how Smart lasted till the 6th pick.  A guy like Exum with no track record gets drafted over Smart?  Time will tell on that one, even if Exum lo more »

    Wow, a PTBNL.  I never guessed his stock was that low.  A few years ago he looked like a long-time fixture as a 4th or 5th starter. But after the other night his body language was anything but positiv more »

    Theo compiling players he drafted.  I would be interested to see what they got for him.  He seemed to have promise but apparently he has a pish poor attitude.

    It'll be interesting to see if this guy can become a viable TE.  He has all the measurables, but he looked very average in his YouTube "highlight" reel.  I'd be happy to be wrong -- I wasn't impressed more »

    We are not privy to the backroom conversation between the Sox and Lester's agents. But can anyone really blame Lester at this point? Why should his agents counter a low ball offer and look bad for ask more »

    Good for Smart.  The exposure to top NBA talent can only help him.  There is a lot to like about him as a player.  Not sure what his ceiling is, but he looks like he's going to have a good career.

    DA is year 2 into a rebuilding programme.  Give it some time.  Assuming you think rebuilding is the way to go (not all do), also realise it takes time, draft picks and expiring contracts to make large more »

    The guy is entitled to his opinion, and in the media biz it's all about having opinions and/or being a pretty face. That being said, his criticism comes across as personal and therefore undermines his more »

    Gerald Wallace does nothing to advance this team's agenda.  They're looking to develop young guys.  I don't think they care about placating Wallace by giving him minutes.  Don't get me wrong, I always more »

    BB is good at drafting TEs?  He drafted enough of them over the years so I would hope he'd unearth a few good ones!  He drafted Dan Graham and Watson in the first round.  Both solid but not spectacula more »

    The first step to getting back to being relevant is to have at least two young-ish, established stars to build around.  If DA trades Rondo then he's back at square 1 -- hoping he can land a centerpiec more »

    Stephenson's contract is a higher annual average value and if he comes close to playing to his potential then he'll cash in with a contract with an even higher AAV a year before Bradly's contract even more »

    A team that had little shot at winning the lottery last year won it.  It's a crap shoot to simply rely on the lottery.  If the C's go out and try to win games next year -- fine.  They won't win many o more »

    Think about Wiggins and his one year of college.  He was inconsistent.  He didn't dominate all the time, great games here and there.  In some of KU's biggest games he was practically invisible.  I jus more »

    Taking on Thornton's deal is meant as a strategy to clear space for next year if his contract expires or to help in the acquisition of a player via trade who will be here long term, either now or at t more »

  • Posted 07/11/2014 10:29:53 EDT

    I'm guessing that since this team is in rebuild mode that Thornton will not get a lot of minutes and is counting the seconds until he can leave town.  He may not even be here past the summer.  Danny w more »

    All I'll add is that Smart doesn't need to be jacking threes.  I get that it's summer league and he's working on his form and getting used to the three point line.  He can get to anywhere on the floor more »

    At worst, Zeller is a low cost 5 who can probably play 25+ mins. and average 8 points and 5 rebounds.  They got the guy as a trade throw-in but he happens to actually have some skill and fills a need. more »
