    Burke/ Knight is only a little undersized and is more than made up for with our twin towers and potential SF through free agency.

    There is also the potential to get a big SG through FA and have Knight be the combo guard off the bench.


    There is something I like about the Burke/Knight combo though. They can both drive and both have legit 3-point strokes. They space the floor well.

    True. Maybe Burke/Knight/Monroe/Drummond are solid enough mentally that we can pair them up with a wildcard and still be OK. We need to find that Sheed type guy to bring the crazy at SF.

    CJ McCollum could be a rich mans Ken English. I like him or Ken Tavious if none of the top prospects fall.

    Of those three, I think Dante West is the one who may be actually crazy.

    JR Smith isn't crazy, he is just an idiot.

    Also, he has to be in the spotlight wherever he is. In NY there is enough spotlight to go around, in DET he will be our #1. I'm not so sure I am comfortable with that anymore.

    Would be great defensively, but I would question the offense.

    The 1st rounder to Charlotte is top-8 protected in 2014, top-1 protected in 2015, and unprotected in 2016.

    I'm dreaming that JD sweeps away all the dead weight before the season starts.
    (even just Stuckey and BoT) That alone would make us a playoff team.

    I didn't get the guy I wanted or the 2nd or 3rd guy but I'm excited. Bottom line, I wanted floor spacing, perimeter scoring and a guy who didn't need to dominate the ball. The ? marks are there about the focus and all that but like CJ, he had to carry his team every night. You want a guy who had to do that because you may need that trait for a few minutes or even a quarter.

    We have a lot of fun guys on the roster. Pope K, Middleton, Drummond. I am interested to see if Mo will let Jerebko play his game. He came in over handling the ball but he was on a roll from the Swedish team. I wished they could have allowed him to find that comfort zone of utilizing his athleticism and skill set without being a liability. He does have the ability to create some havoc on both sides of the floor.

    summer league is going to be fun.

    What does this say about the churn level (leadership outlook) of the team's developing situations? Theoretical, symbolic, normative or just plain pragmatic?
    Now, backing up a little-bit with the latest draft picture, has this advanced slightly?
