    Better than last season in almost every way
    I disagree. Nico will never be a SF. We will get torched on defense if Niko played SF. Jackson has not proven he can run safely as part of a NBA team much less be counted on as the primary backup PG. Also, losing Rondo hurts this team, and we are not better at least on paper.


    Here is the lineup I see them rolling with. I hope both Payton and Jackson can develop into solid contributors as SF and PG are clearly team weaknesses.

    PG: Payton/Clark/Jackson
    SG: Holiday/Miller/Liggins
    SF: Moore/Hill
    PF: Randle/Mirotic/Diallo
    C: Davis/Okafor/Ajinca


    6th man: Mirotic

    The Pelicans can't make an offer higher and Hood isn't a big enough name in Cleveland to have an affect in the locker room.

    Look I hope you are right, but I think Cleveland can get better offers than bloody Solomon Hill.

    Oh yeah and Asik will be a trade asset come Feb as he has a large non guaranteed contract in 2019/20. Largely why Chicago made this move in the first place.

    They could potentially get two first round picks for just renting Asik and letting a 27 year old Mirotic go who wasn't in their long term goals as they already have Portis.
    Basically everything you said is the exact case that can be made for Hill. He will give them the same expiring contract and be worth more then Asik cause he can actually play. Just like Mirotic had his problems with the Bulls Hood has is and exactly like you said he isnít that big of a person on the team. Why wouldnít they want a 1st round pick for someone that wonít be around longer then next year. What team in the NBA is going to send them a player clearly better then Hill and a 1st round pick? We canít offer him much obviously which is why we would through a sign and trade. The Cavs are almost in a identical situation with Hill as the Bulls were with Mirotic. Every team in the NBA would take Hill and a 1st over Asik and a 1st. Mirotic also had a year in a half left on his deal while Hood is expiring making Mirotic more valuable. If you donít like the trade or think it wonít happen thatís one thing but shooting it down like itís dumb and not possible is a little ridiculous and I would just tell you to go look over all of the trades that have gone down the last 4 years and tell me why those did but this one wonít.

    Yea hate to break it to people but Randle or Mirotic absolutely will not be playing SF. I could maybe see them do it for a little stretch but other then that it’s not going to be an significant minutes where it will even make a difference. Mirotic can guard SFs on switches but for an entire game would be a disaster against 90% of the starting SFs in the NBA. I’m sure Randle could probably guard SFs well but the last thing you want is your 245 lb big chasing a wing around all game taking away from what he does best. I don’t see the fascination with playing these guys somewhere they have never played and for a good reason.

    Asik is guaranteed only 3M in 2019/20.
    Hill is guaranteed 12.7M in 2019/20.

    How is that the same asset for the CAV's as Asik is for CHI?

    The Pel's wont give up a 1st for Hood, as they could sign an expiring like Barnes using cap space next season who is much better than Hood.

    I never said it was dumb. I simply think there is no interest there from the Pel's.

    In other news, Houston Rockets requesting the NBA to allow the use of 2 Basketballs at a time, probably.

    Hopefully some of that dedication to watching film rubbed off on some of our guys.

    Frank Jackson has said Rondo taught him quite a bit about the game. I really hope this was one of those aspects.

    Because Jackson has elite physical tools. If he becomes as obsessed a student of the game as Rondo or already was....then it's a considerable boon for us.

    I'm with you. Letting Ennis walk and countering with massively overpaying for Hill made no sense. Ennis gives you more than Hill for more than half the cost. He really thrived for the short time he was here.

    So slow here......guess I have no excuse and will have to get my paperwork done.

    Isaiah Thomas has agreed to a one-year deal with the Denver Nuggets at the veteran minimum, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.
    It's that the Hornets unashamedly quit so quickly in Game 4 after fans in New Orleans showed up this season with greater regularity than the team could have ever dreamed, shaming misinformed know-it-alls like me who kept telling you that local residents couldn't possibly invest their time and money into something as trivial as rooting for the local basketball team while still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. - Mark Stien ESPN

    With Trae Young and Jeremy Lin now in house, one has to think Dennis Schroder is on the move somewhere soon...

    The Nwaba-Chicago dance intrigues me. Chicago just took a risk on a LaVine, so i donít see them being in the market for another RFA. I see them as more willing to rent out space for assets to hedge against the reluctant deal they signed with LaVine. Dell should give his old friends GarPax a call to get in on that action.

    I hope Dell had the good sense to avoid reaching out to him. Dell's given himself a fair amount of credibility in my eyes over the last few seasons, I'd hate to find out that he spent Free Agency chasing after a broken down wreck of a 5'9 ball-hog.
