    Supposedly we had a deal in place for Millsap over the summer before the Hawks lost Horford and they pulled the plug.

    Basically, the Raps have to play the best ball they can play with everything going their way with the elite team not playing their best in order to beat them as the roster sits right now.

    The only real question is whether Ujiri will actually pull the trigger on an in season deal and pay the price needed to bring in that 3rd piece, or wait until the offseason to address.

    On the plus side of trading for a guy midseason (like Millsap who is expected to decline his option at the end of the year)is that they would gain his bird right so they could go over the salary cap to retain him if they wanted to. The downside.. obviously would be they would shatter their own depth in order to do that given that it cost them probably 3-4 roster players and a pick to get him.
    Also giving 5 year Max contracts to Lowry and Milsaap (who's 32) and going deep into the luxury tax might not be the best idea. They have been the best offence in history, they don't need a 3rd scoring option...What they need is better defense.

    Derozan and JV on the floor together are a trainwreck at that end.

    The third scoring option is not for the regular season though, it's for the playoffs when you can reliably count on one of Lowry or Derozan being focused on and being somewhat contained from 1 game to the next.

    If Atlanta is blowing it up, Raps should be 100% in on him.

    It was confirmed that they had a deal IN place for him over the summer so I'm sure they will go after him again.

    I want to see Norman Powell get full time minutes somewhere just as a basketball fan. He's already better than half of the starters in the league.

    In a perfect world Ross is the one being shipped out

    Not an excuse for how awful this team can be but these refs are visibly kissing the Bulls' ass because Wade is old or something.

    The funny thing is if you pole 100 random NBA fans, the majority will say Demar Derozan is better

    Didn't watch any of the game. How did Bebe play at the 4 with JV?
