My understanding:

 

Ingram, #2 won't be traded. Signing 2 max contracts in 2018 free agency would imply they will trade one of Deng / Mozgov, if not both. And only way to do that in realistic terms is by trading Russell and some more.

Heard Magic on 710 today.

Some take aways.

-Ingram is untouchable

-leaning toward Ball, but also spent time talking about Jackson(if you really believe we are getting Westbrook, then don't be surprised if they draft Jackson)

-Tilted his hand a tad bit by saying they are looking to sign 2 max guys in next years free agency. Basically saying they will trade one of the Mosgov/Deng contracts.

-emphasized multiple times that's the young guys will need to be in shape and get better or else they won't play and could be traded.

-Mentioned he gave notes for each individual

-Zubac needs to get leaner
-Nance needs a consistent 12-15 footer
-clarkson needs to be better on D
-Russell has the tools, put it 2gther
-Randle needs to be better with right

Why though?

Never understood why lefty bigs need to use their right more, but righty bigs dont need to use their left more?

Its discrimination. And relatively unimportant vs other things (footwork, shot mechanics, first step, 2nd efforts near the rim, etc) 


Praying for  1. Youngsters Ballin (Didn't really happen on a consistent basis at all) 2. Miracle Trade (Also didn't happen. And we traded our best player for chump change) 3. Kick Ass Rooks (Zubac exceeded, Ingram tried but disappointed overall)

READY FOR SEASON TO BE OVER!!!

I have a feeling they may take Fox. Dude is fast as [expletive] and plays defense and athletic. If we can get Fox Paul George and a defensive 2 we could be scary defensively.

Because most NBA players are right handed. You attack their weakside, which is their left.

 

Randle, or any other left handed are making it easier for defense to contain/steal/block..
