Default Enes Kanter

Who thinks it would be good to land Enes in the off-season? He has shown how dominate he can be with Jefferson and Millsap out.

Anybody think we good work a good deal to get him?

We're not getting him. Maybe if you want him instead of Ross. Utah apparently is leaning to keep Big Al. Their big trio is Big Al/Favors/Kanter. Also - DD for Millsap in S+T.

Losing DD would set this franchise back 2-3 years, let alone the effect it would have on bringing in future free agents.

If we got somebody good in return, it would probably improve the team right away.

Hard to say that considering you have no clue who we could get fot him. If we could get a better defensive player that can hit 3's.........giddy up. It's as if this fanbase doesn't know the meaning of the term sell high. This is the type of shit people said about Bargnani a couple years ago....hell last summer.

This. If there is a good deal for Derozan I would take it. Sure he is a good young player but I think pairing Rudy up with a big man down-low will be better for us. Then just bring in a good defensive-3pt shooting 2 guard and we are set :cookie:

DDs new 9.x mil contract kicks in next year so that has to be considered. Someone should invent a PER/$ kind of stat.

I was hoping we were going to draft Kantner at the time. Probabaly not the best idea but would love to see him here.

The follow up to DD for Millsap (S+T) is LF+TR for Affalo. Also, if DD leaves it's not the end of the world.

DD, TR and LF being shipped out with Millsap and Affalo coming in. There'd be no weak links defensively in the starting lineup and no real offensive weak links either.

LF, TR for Affalo. DD for Millsap (S+T). Do Millsap and Affalo not fit your description perfectly?

Well said. I think what's worse is that BC doesn't know the meaning of the term sell high.

Fuck, I know. He had SO MANY chances (with so many different players) and he didn't do squat, instead he spoke to the media about how he covets (insert player) Such a weird GM.

What's the point of getting another center? JV and Kanter can neither play the four.

So basically, a guy goes off for a 19-13, 69% week --> 'lets get him'

well yeah, good luck getting him without at the very least losing Jonas

Kanter is good, but Favors is better. I don't think we settle when trading DD. It's either a bigtime stud or keep him. Amir JV, Ross and Gay are the only untouchables

at this point i'm leaning towards taking ross off that list. he hasn't impressed me other than a 10 game stretch. i'll give him this summer to work out with DD and have a DD like explosion from 1st to second year. otherwise, ship his ass out if we can get something proven

If he has a DD like explosion then I'd ship him out... I'm hoping he's not going to develop that slowly. Ross has lost a bit of focus, but he's not been given the leash that a rookie DD was given. An offseason should be great for him given he's got a lot less to work on in terms of athleticism and skills. He needs consistency, mental toughness, confidence and repetition.

Utah wouldnt accept anyone from our team outside of Jonas, and I think Jonas is a better prospect than Kanter, so no, this isnt possible.
