We need size before we need a ball handler. Need both though.
Jaden Mcdaniels went from unplayable and foul prone start of the year to being an issue close to the end

Cap space as of today
5 Million before the tax

Realisticly out
Layman
Prince

"Assets"
Mid First Round
Okogie
D'lo

Wish List
Banger Big
Sized vet PG who's pass first (Hey Rubio, u up?)

What do we do?

Honestly no idea. You'd suspect DLo's contract isn't easily movable yet and guys like Beasley and McD that looked like trade bait last season were immensely useful this season.

I reckon we make some moves around the periphery, maybe a vet big through FA/trade, then see what we've got pre-deadline next season.

Is there anyone available that you're interested in?

Honestly,

Nowell develops and we can go in with some Hybrid line-up of Nowell/McLaughlan and play another whack defensive scheme which just works

Like most amazing situation?

Trade D'lo, Get Bridges

The this is awesome situation? Mitchell Robinson prefers to come to us over Dallas

Myles Turner comes in on an expiring with the Idea he will get a big contract, and Russell is out


What is reasonably expected

Nic Claxton and we play Towns at PF

Dennis Schroder (however Teague vibes giving me shivers)

Tyrus Jones (Please)

Gobert a Wolf for Beverley, Kessler, Vanderbilt, Bolmaro, Beasley, and four first-round picks (3 unprotected, one top 5 protected).

I love the prospect of the fit, but that is an absurd package that was (1) surely way beyond what anybody else would pay; and (2) enough of a package to get a far better player.

but how often is it possible to trade in a player of that quality that is also a perfect fit?

I was pretty pessimistic about next year, the west is going to be a lot tougher is Denver and LAC back in the mix, maybe Portland to.
Wolves were damn lucky to get the 7th seed this year but this move makes them an automatic home seed next season if the key pieces stay healthy.
I'm sad to see Vando go though

That’s a lot. They control your picks until KAT is 33. 7 years away. Gobert is 30 with some knee injuries.

KAT guarding the perimeter? What happens to his post touches? Does it get clogged up?

I dunno man.

The trade is on balance an overpay but coming back with the same core plus some fringe players in the draft wasnt going to cut it.

Vando is the only one I’m sad to lose. Beasley meh, Bolmaro may surprise, Kessler will take time to develop and PatBev’s value was cultural.

SloMo is a nice signing by the way. Solid dude.

I doubt they’ll get much for DLo and would be surprised if he isn’t on the team on opening day.

Gobert has Sweet F all injury history and has been super reliable injury wise. Last time he missed games with a knee was 2017. He hurt his Ankle this year. So maybe that I guess?

KAT has traditionally guarded the perimeter a lot better then the paint, Most wolves supporters have screamed for it this year, Infact we were a better defensive team with him blitzing the PNR, until teams then attacked us again at the paint.

Kat's post touches? What are they? Saw some with Sam Mitchell as the coach.

It does occur to me that if Rosas had stayed we would have coughed up those picks for Ben Simmons.
