Finch going hard with the 'getting KAT back to the centre of everything' lines. Feels like a pretty direct dig at Saunders and I can't say I disagree with it.

Utah really spread the load. 7 players scoring double digits, with 3 with 20+ points.
Their 7 best is averaging +26 mins per game.

Even the next tier is good for regular season; oni, favors niang.

Very good team but you wonder if they will have enough firepower / stars post season?

On a sort of related note interestingly Brooklyn essentially reverted to a 7 man rotation vs a full strength clipper.

Edit. Azubuike too, might end up being a good gobert back up

How is Irving an All Star starter for running away during tough times when LaVine is absolutely balling is beyond me.
He only missed a few games and flat earth is playing awesome. His shooting is quality too. Irving is also hardly touching the ball, unselfishly letting harden be the PG and kd the n.1 option

Lavine is brilliant too

Think they do. Always need a good rotation/bench to push in playoffs. They were so close to West Conference finals last season. Mitchell is another year older. Denver, Spurs, Suns aren't as strong. It's possible.

I'd be surprised if it ended up being the full 28 million without sending salaries out, because adding roughly $15 million (I heard) in salary to your roster will put you over the luxury tax, which means repeater taxes will kick in next season, and stay locked in again for 2022/23.



November.



The problem is they are capped out now because Tatum and Brown's extensions have kicked in. So they can't go the free agency route beyond the Tristan Thompsons of the world. And they've used up all the draft capital they acquired over the years.

2018-2021 should have been their ideal time to contend, but they've bled too much talent via free agency, Kemba's deal looks iffy, and they're relying almost entirely on mid to late first round draftees for depth and improvement.

They're not screwed, but their options to improve now are much more limited than they have been. And that's a problem when they're clearly not contenders as presently constructed.
Yes, it will that's the shocking thing.

Ainge has got to go wasted so much time not going for it.
