    Not the natural scorer Rudy Gay was. But was supposed to be a little bit better at everything else. I have a feeling that's still pretty accurate. But if he's lost a step on defense I don't see how he's going to help this team. We have zero use for an older player that can't shoot if he isn't going to be a force on the defensive end.

    I don't see it as a matter of chemistry or being washed up. The reality is he's a four who'd ideally be paired with a stretch five, but the rotational fives on this team are both rim runners, so his best role on this team is small ball five. The problem is, they have more depth at the latter than the former.

    I foresee limited minutes eventually leading to a mutual agreement whereby he's shutdown and away from the team while he awaits a trade (Celtics, Timberwolves, Suns, look like possibilities) or buyout.

    Boston just waived Parker. I wonder if they will take Young with their exception in exchange for a future 1st?

    Idk if that’s the type of move Boston would make right now, maybe at the deadline. I’m wondering why we haven’t heard about Aminu being cut yet

    I think final cuts don’t have to be until COB Monday. They won’t do it until the last minute to allow for last minute trades.

    They seemed to like Parker so the only reason I see them cutting him is if they found someone better. The Celtics also have been under some pressure for not making enough improvements. So who knows!

    The guy’s hardly played in preseason. Considering he was pretty darn good last year I’d withhold judgment myself.

    Kind of a harsh poll, tbh.

    Tough on Thad. Comes off a career year to get DNPs on a non-contending team. Hope we trade him for his (and our) sakes.

    i feel bad for young and i don't even know much about him. but i hope he doesn't rot on the bench. he seems to deserve more than that fate.

    Don’t feel too bad. In addition to collecting DNPs he’s also collecting $14M.

    with Patrick Williams now likely out for the season, maybe the bulls will want young back.

    Yeah. To conclude the guy can’t play based on lack of playing time with the Spurs is ridiculous. I’m guessing he gets moved or released sooner rather than later.

    I still like the trade because it includes a future first round pick and two seconds while clearing away DeRozan's minutes for the younger guys. Hopefully something can be gotten for Young and Aminu-- that would be a bonus. But if not, I still like the trade.

    I don't think we can trade him to the team we got him from.

    It seems like a Thad needs his own resurrection thread …

    Well done Thad. Put in some quality minutes. Shook off the rust and got it done.

    Hope he got Eubanks spot on the roster now. That guy needs to be glued to the bench. Young is way better and we can increase his trade value.

    Goal needs to be to up his value by Feb. After that he’s really of little use to the team, beyond maybe 2 months of providing “intangibles/glue guy stuff.”

    Phoenix just no-tendered Jalen Smith. He will be unrestricted next summer. Not a great look for Smith, or for Phoenix using the #10 pick on him.

    Phoenix is cheap as . He was drafted too high, definitely, but he has some skills.

    This likely puts to bed the rumors of Thad to PHX for Smith and Saric. It was probably dead for a while, but maybe Young starting to get some run and Smith getting declined right now means something.

    trading Young by the deadline would be the best move. Let him play back up C until Zach Collins is ready and then trade him

    Don’t think it was money. He sucked pretty badly last year, and wasn’t exactly lighting the world on fire this season.

    Smiths is trash, and Saric is out for the year. Phoenix was trying to get something for nothing. They had until yesterday to pick up the option. That’s all it means.
