    We should just focus on getting some 3 and D players to come in off the bench but Ujiri has to decide who he wants to go forward with soon Ross or DeRozan it isnt helping much having both.... and send Fields packing too.

    I do as well.

    However Bledsoe might be in one of hose now Johnson situations like with Phx where once traded he becomes much more than anyone knew.
    I see a Harden situation happening with Bledsoe. I actually think he's a better player than John Wall, the player he backed up in college.

    His BBIQ is outstanding.

    What empirical proof do you have of that? You have made a prediction about the future and prefaced it with "I know", which is a statement of certainty. I think you meant to write "I hope".
    I will never doubt DD's work ethic. 30-33% isn't that huge of a jump. We've seen him go through stretches where he shot way better than that over the years. Plus I've never heard him on into the summer saying that he would only work on his range. He usually says that his working on his all around game. I'm pretty confident on my prediction.

    Math is not on your side.

    6 3pt attempts making just 33% gives you 6 points. Up that to 40% and you get 7.2 points.

    6 ft attempts needs 100% to get same points.
    But when you get a free throw (not counting and one's) you get two on one possession. So, 80% ft's on 6 possessions is 12 freethrows and 9.6 points.

    Dd gets 5.2 attempts last year. That is 2 foul calls and an and one per game. Maybe 3 shooting fouls drawn a game..... So no, he is not getting 12 attempts per game.

    I like the idea of flipping Novak and dero for Bledsoe and butler. Lets hope Bledsoe is the real deal tho

    Right, but efficiency is what matters. A 3pt shot costs 1 possession, 2 free throws cost 1 possession on average.

    SG is the least efficient (FG% wise) in the league, the average of which I am pretty sure is .422. Demar is at .445, thats pretty efficient relative to his usage.

    No, into a conversation involving free throws vs. 3-pointers.

    If Derozan for Bledsoe works then can we use lowry and one of second rounders for Afflalo?
    Whoever told you skies the limit is looking dumb because I'm 22 and i'm moonwalking on the sun.

    I would not do Derozan for Bledsoe straight up. Id expect at least a first rounder out of the Clippers for a proven talent at the same age as Bledsoe.

    Though if we do do it, Id flip Lowry and change for Afflalo in a second.

    Come on Brandon. Why you hatin on Jerry Stack (whose more of a 3 than a 2), and Kendall Gill? You just knocked off like $0.25 of value off of a couple of my rookie cards with that comment! I actually don't mind both. They were important parts that made pretty respectable playoff runs. Sadly, depth at shooting guard at present is abysmal compared to the past. Practically all those dudes are retired, or nearing the end. That's the real problem.
