    Sign and trade Shump for Boogie on a short term deal?

    GSW could use a replacement for Iggy

    As far as the Rockets go

    Paul/Gordon
    Harden/Green
    Tucker/House/Clark
    Cousins/Harrenstein
    Capela/McGee

    If Kings sign Horford, BOS is definitely trading for a 5.

    Unless they sign Boogie.

    I’d figure out a way to get Ainge to deal Jaylen Brown for Capela, then sign either Looney or Cauley-Stein with the remainder of the MLE.

    Or move Gordon and filler for Kevin Love and play Tucker at small forward.

    That not possible klove makes so much it would have to be Clint n gordan for love. So.u would have enough for brown or vice versa..Clint alone I dont think would get it done for brown

    If Iggy is bought out he becomes an option. I wonder at this point in his career what he is looking for. I'd love for House to break out and Iggy to be on the Nene regular season plan, only to have him break out big in playoffs.

    In any case, we're going into the season as a team with a confidence problem as last year we ran it back because we wanted to. Now because we just couldn't get anyone. If CP3 keeps declining, we're a 50-55 win team losing to a LA / Jazz / Pelicans / Clippers / Warriors waiting to happen.

    Great article from @KellyUnchained on the same topic https://theathletic.com/1056114/201...ut-on-top-target-in-free-agency-so-what-next/

    Mentions idea of using the rest of the MLE on Austin Rivers and using BAE on another target, maybe marcus morris or wes matthews. Austin Rivers was great for Houston in his half-season, so I don't think this is a bad idea. As weird as it sounds, I think it's super important houston hits on the BAE with someone that outplays the contract, and same thing for at least one vet min. Compare how well Luc Mbah a Moute worked out to how bad Melo was, for basically the same money. More needs a bounce back year when it comes to the fringe signings.

    so not only we did not improve, but we may as well regress when Austin has enough of iso ball (as he seemed on espn) + Faried not resignin

    We go through this every summer: "Why didn't we sign so and so, Morey is not doing his job.. "We are going to suck next year cause other teams got better and we didn't.." blah blah blah We don't have near the money other teams had.

    I feel all we need is a pretty good SF (3&D wing) and a good C or PF to help on boards and rim protection. Bringing House back and giving him a full offseason of development and camp should help him be more consistent next year. There is still some talent on the market that can be had for cheap once the dust settles. We were never going to be major players in the FA market for the top guys. I feel like our offense still keeps us ahead of a lot of these teams. G St wont be the same now.

    I think Rivers with Wes or MM would be nice pickups if we can't get Iggy

    Trade for Love, sign Looney. Try to sign Cousins and/or J. Green. Bring back Rivers and lets go to work.

    Very intrigued by the idea of Marcus Morris.

    I have irrational hope still for Danny Green.
