Didn't know he was injured. This explains his big drop off.

Was averaging around 11 PPG through the first couple of months of the season from memory

Tim Connelly worked his magic to bring in the soon to be cult hit Bol Bol. Can't believe we got him for a future second and some cash.

We are in a great position to let him get fully healthy and work in to a season/next season just like MPJ.

Damn we have a great young and talented core moving forward.

Summer league roster:



Looking forward to seeing MPJ, Vanderbilt and Cancar. It's disappointing that we won't see Bol Bol though, I'm guessing we will take a cautious approach.

Who do at think will make our roster for the season?

Centers:
Jokic (C / PF)
Plumlee (C)

Forwards:
Millsap (PF) - provided we bring him back, which I hope we do
Vanderbilt (PF)
Barton (SF / SG / PG)
MPJ (SF)

Guards:
Murray (PG / SG)
Morris (PG)
Harris (SG)
Beasley (SG)
Craig (SG / SF)

I feel like these guys are certainties to make it, which would leave another four spots, ideally for another C, PF, SF and PG. I'm guessing Hernangomez will likely make the cut as another forward option.

Well we are bringing Millsap back, which I think is the right decision even if he's getting paid All-Star money.

The young group need that veteran experience and leadership, plus he is still capable of having very good games.

It would be nice to see us get involved in the FA madness, but no Kreonke owned team will ever throw money around (as a long suffering Arsenal fan I can confirm).

I'm backing Connelly and our young core in to continue to develop. Though I'm scared teams like Jazz and the Lakers will now leapfrog us.

Means we get the full 30m cap space next year instead of only 17m.

Also Jamal signs an extension 5yr/170m

We traded in Jerami Grant, who is a good pickup.

I think this will mean we have seen the last of Lyles though.

Goodwin has been impressive in the Summer League. I think it's safe to assume that he will take the last PG spot on the roster.

Joker / Plumlee / Bol Bol
Millsap / Grant / Vanderbilt
Craig / Barton / MPJ
Harris / Beasley / ???
Murray / Morris / Goodwin

Given Craig, Barton and Murray can all cover SG, and Grant can cover SF, then that last spot is likely a raffle between - Cancar, Welsh and ???
