    But now that I think about it. Carroll is unnecesary with Morris on board. Carroll made sense when we didn't have a single guy over 6'6" who could D up a bit. In a squad with Morris in the picture Bertans > Carroll as a bench player. If only for change of pace purposes.
    IDK. Morris is easily more mobile and can actually be considered a full-time SF. Gay and Carroll are old (one being injury-prone now (Gay)). basically 4 guys (Derozan, Morris, Carroll, Gay covering 2 spots (SF/PF) Carroll and Morris are on great per year contracts too so.

    Marcus is better and was good in Boston
    Good. I'm always confused between the two atleast we got the tough/aggressive one. Markieff seems more on being laidback.

    Glad RC and Pop stop drinking for a minute to participate in the NBA off-season.

    I like the addition of Morris and Carroll. Had to figure something was up with Bobby
    Marks weird tweet about a Spurs trade and use of the MLE.

    I would rather have one elite defender and one elite three point shooters instead of one elite defender and one good defender. But it is already made, good move overall.
    I couldn't call Bertans' playoff shooting elite, but I'm sure there are some great excuses for that.

    . Apparently at me and others who thought they'd never sign a Morris brother (though the logic was sound) . . .

    Morris/Gay
    DeRozan/Carroll
    Aldridge/Poeltl
    Forbes/Mills
    Murray/White

    Or

    Morris/Gay
    Carroll/Forbes
    Aldridge/Poeltl
    DeRozan/Mills
    Murray/White

    Obviously 1-3 would cross match defensively.
    I'm loving that defensive versatility.

    Quick thoughts:

    -Marcus Morris is a really good fit as starting power forward. Can space the floor, adds toughness, does well against those long wings.

    -You can play Carroll and Morris together at the forward spots. Both are flexible and able to play 3 or 4.

    -I didn't think the Spurs would actually sign a Morris twin but you can't question the talent. Marcus Morris was very likely the best possible pure fit at the MLE.

    -That Morris was even eligible at the MLE is surprising. He basically just fell through the cracks, it seems. I think it was Lowe who was predicting that he could get $80 million or more this offseason.

    -Bertans will be missed for his elite stretching of the court but he's being replaced by two players who can shoot threes and do more than just that on the court. With this option on the table, the Spurs would have been dumb to pass it up.
    You mentioned Carroll and Morris playing together. Given how pop likes to play mad scientist, how do you think Morris and DDR/ Morris and Gay fit with each other?

    i really wanted bertans to work out... his quick/high release was nuts as a spacing weapon. but he was ultimately not good at doing just about anything else and had no position versatility. even though morris/carroll can shoot some, they arent going to resemble the shooting threat bertans was. hopefully white becomes a more aggressive shooter to compensate

    Hope we can flip Forbes or Belinelli for a backup center. I think Willie Reed is still available who some of here wanted him previously.

    Kieff was the better shooter and was a good fit in Phoenix and Marcus was more of a defensive type player. Both were headcases early in their career, but Marcus Sr. has shown to be a better fit for a winning team.

    That's why Carroll got a couple bonus million out of the deal. Worth it, obviously.
    Yeah, but there is no requirement about the third year being fully guaranteed. Want to bet it comes out that the third year is either partially or unguaranteed?

    Morris Carroll
    DeRozan Morris
    Morris Gay

    Those all work at the forward spots.

    I think a Forbes/Derozan/Morris/Gay/Aldridge line up could be likely at the end of games.

    S&T with Boston for Morris could free up a roster spot and drop some salary, probably would have to include a pick.
