You mean to tell me Zubac isn't black?

I like to dip my feet in toilet water & smell them.

Position-less basketball, my friend. The way of the future.

Just like how Durant plays C and can be a good rim protector for the Warriors during the death lineup due to his length, Ingram could do the same in the future.

Moz running the point would solve our problems.

He's crafty enough that his speed won't hurt his play at the point.

Durant wouldnt be playing center in there death line up. It would be Draymond. But i dont see any scenario where we would have Ingram at the 5 now or in the future

We should consider going after Gordon Hayward. He's a UFA this offseason and would be a great piece to add to the roster. 

He is not the only good free agent (UFA) available this summer. Check this list.

 

PG Jeff Teague (28) - Indiana ( 15.0 ppg - 7.9 apg - 4.4 rpg ) he makes $ 8.8 mil. this season - UFA

 

PG Jrue Hiliday (26) - New Orleans ( 15.7 ppg - 7.3 apg - 4.0 rpg ) $ 11.2 mil. this season

 

SG Dion Waiters (25) - Miami ( 16.1 ppg - 4.4 apg - 3.4 rpg ) $ 2.8 mil. this season - UFA - PO

 

SF Gordon Hayward (26) - Utah ( 21.9 ppg - 3.5 apg - 5.5 rpg ) $ 16.0 mil this season   UFA - PO

 

PF Serge Ibaka ( 27 ) - Toronto ( 14.9 ppg - 6.8 rpg - 1.7 bpg ) $ 12,250,000   UFA

 

PF Terrence Jones ( 25 ) - Milwaukee ( 11.2 ppg - 5.8 rpg - 1.0 bpg ) $ 980,431

Priority # 1 this off-season has to be getting rid of L.Deng and S.Mozgov.

It won't be easy task, but Magic has to leave up to his nickname and make this happen with the help of Rob Pelinka. We have enough rookies on this team. We don't need to add any other, even if we win the lottery this summer with the first over-all pic in June. Instead, we can use both first round pics to prepare a nice packages including Deng and Mozgov and anyone else from our roster, not named Russell, Ingram or Zubac. We need to take several serviceable veterans (25 - 27 y.o. ) to make this team more attractive for the free agents this summer.

Priority #1 is just to make smart decisions and try not to rush anything. Giving up 3-4 years of [expletive]e just to be able to get demolished in the first round is not the way to go. Add talent in the draft and free agency and build around the youth is the way to go.

 

Getting rid of Mozzy and Deng woudl be nice, but if we are building around Russell (just turned 21), Zubac (19) and Ingram (19) i dont think moving those deals are a high priority right now. In 2018, they can be stretched, if we need the cap space.

Yea if PG or DMC really want to come here next summer we'll find a way to make it happen.  Providing we don't do anything stupid this summer we'll have enough space to sign one of them out right regardless.  The Deng and Moz contracts are unfortunate but some folks place too much stock in the idea that they're holding us back.  Holding us back from what?  What did cap space get us the last 3 summers?  Oh.....right Lol.  If we do end up packaging up a player or pick with one of them to shed their salary I would hope it's with a specific goal in mind.
