    [NBA] East Playoffs, Round One

    “RUN IT BACK!” / Monte needs to fix this.

    So this probably points at the happy medium between the two positions here. Can Domas shoot it well enough from outside? Yes. Does he shoot it often enough? No. But really, it's more easily fixable to convince a reluctant high-percentage shooter to shoot more often than it is to convert an...

    “RUN IT BACK!” / Monte needs to fix this.

    The thing is that Sabonis had better shooting percentages this year from both 16ft-3P and from 3 (.471, .379) than Jokic (.370, .359), translating to 1.09 points per shot outside of 16 for Domas compared to only 0.99 points per shot for Jokic. Jokic just took those shots twice as often as...

    Not an ETO. ETO can only be done after year four of a five-year deal, but we can only offer a max of years with Early Bird. We could offer 3 years with a player option on year 4, but we can't make it an ETO. But the difference between ETOs and player options are small and somewhat esoteric...

    I'm not sure if he was the most recent, but in his sophomore year Aaron Nesmith did: .522 on 8.2 attempts per game!

    But of course, that was 6 years ago, and on almost 3x the minutes that Keon played this year. My point is not exactly that Keon is *better* than Grant. They play different positions, so apples-to-apples is not easy. My point is that Grant is wildly overpaid and (though I didn't specifically...

    It's clearly time for a Player A/Player B here: Player A: PER 15.4 TS% .573 TRB% 5.8 AST% 13.8 STL% 1.2 BLK% 1.7 USG% 25.7 DWS 1.0 (1830 minutes) WS/48 0.071 Player B: PER 12.0 TS% .627 TRB% 7.1 AST% 11.1 STL% 2.5 BLK% 2.7 USG% 12.4 DWS 1.2 (978 minutes) WS/48 0.114 Oh, and... Player A...

    Oh, yes, that's right, I wasn't thinking about that aspect. One year is enough to get Full Bird, but a contract using the Early Bird now would have to be 2 years minimum. So the 1-and-1 would give Monk Bird Rights, but it couldn't be at the Early Bird contract level.

    I think that's right, you can do something like an ETO followed by a player option (or the other way around?) to get two options, but I think that's the max.

    Honestly I haven't seen film on Risacher - I'm not big on watching highlight mixes because I think they obscure so much of a player's game, and I don't even know if there is full game tape available on YouTube. I just made that comment based on size, need, and reputation. So the comment was...

    A 1-and-1 deal would be fine. Bird kicks in after three years without changing teams via free agency. There's no restriction to whether the contracts are one 3-year deal or three 1-year deals, or whatever. Monk is already at 2 years, so one more year in any fashion is all we need.

    Kings beat Warriors again, slated to pick 13th in 2024 draft (barring lotto magic)

    So, I know there was a draft-day trade involved, but "the last time the Kings picked 13th they drafted Corliss Williamson" and "Georgios Papagiannis was selected 13th" are a bit contradictory, no? And, seriously, the one singular absolute disaster on that list was picked by the Kings.

    This is going to hurt when the Warriors jump up into the top 4.

    If Adam Silver smiles down upon us with some magic lotto balls, I'd be perfectly happy just taking Risacher and calling it a day.

    For a guy who was at times (on at least some mocks) sitting in the #1 mock spot, I didn't see enough out of Cody to really justify top-spot ranking. But, it's a weak draft up top for sure. I'd be plenty happy to give him a shot if somehow he falls to us, but that feels unlikely. Draft...

    I don't get this. Playing our actual NBA players against the Pelicans hasn't worked so far, so let's play our fringe NBA players instead? There's a reason that Kessler doesn't get rotation minutes. And that's not the reason. Donté Greene may have accused us of doing that (way back in the...
