    Blow It Up

    Yea, I hate hindsight experts. Simple math says its more advantageous to select from a larger pool than a smaller one, especially if the larger pool contains each member of the smaller pool.

    I'm not questioning the rumored asking price. I'm questioning the value that you place on the spare parts.

    Quantity simply does not equal value no matter how much you try to rationalize it. Wish you were right, but there is no way the Kings are getting those players by simply punting spare parts and one first.

    Teams are taking away that pick and roll that he runs with Hali. Surprised opponents haven’t done that sooner since Orlando did the sane thing the year before. It is one of the reasons why I’ve felt for some time that his game is best suited for a bench role. Once teams take away that area of...

    Blow It Up

    First, you’re completely disregarding the years remaining on a rookie contract. That alone brings down the value of the spare parts that you cobble together to equal first. Second, quantity does not equal quality. Two players worth seconds, who are 2-4 yrs into their rookie deals does not now...

    Monte wishes he could get those players for that price. At a minimum, Mitchell and two Kings first will need to go out. Then he’ll have to find a first from the other spare parts not named Hali or Fox.

    Only works if Fox is a star. If he’s not, dat sh*t is going to crumble so hard.

    Blow It Up

    Vivek and McNair are going to copy what the Bulls did last year. Sacrifice the future for a lower ceiling. Grant fixes the perimeter defending issues while Turner fixes the interior defending problems. And with Turner, because he can shoot, he'll mitigate some of the ball stopping issues that...

    2/3 odds Kings are really going to mortgage the future for Jerami Grant and Myles Turner. Just SMH. https://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/265580/Kings-Pursuing-Jerami-Grant-Domantas-Sabonis-Myles-Turner

    Per CD, Monte is traveling with the team. Guess it's not so surprising that the players are playing like they're going to be traded. Monte is effectively meeting face to face with the following teams: 1. Detroit (at G1C) = Bey & Grant. 2. Boston = they wanted Barnes last year and need a PG...

    Jerami Grant on the Kings would just be so perfect. The kind of move a desperate GM makes. Monte will likely follow it up with a trade for Bogi. Apparently he is traveling with the team. Get ready for Bogi to the Kings for two unprotected Kings picks. His IBM has concluded that letting Bogi...

    Kinda expected when your defenders are guarding air. There was one play where Galinari gets a pass on the perimeter and Bagley kinda just quit on the close out. Wasn’t even a jog. Made 3.

    I mean, yea, Vlade played a role, but you know the number of possible outcomes are almost in the thousands. Monte just needs a few more years to think them through.

    Don’t ask long, complicated questions. It requires a ton of processing power, which his IBM lacks.

    It's not a debate. If each team gets to pick five players during those years, the pool of players at each pick is 52, 52, 52, 52, 52 vs. 49, 49, 49, 49, 49. Whatever iteration the second team picks, the first team can pick the same team and equal it or do one tweak and beat it. That said, I...
