    I'd expect sochan to get 22 to 26 minutes a game as a rook. My best guess.

    And that’s a problem why? Serves two purposes ( gets the players real minutes / experience and we’ll probably lose games ) looking towards the future.
    Starting McBuckets should guarantee losses as well.

    Yeah unless he is included in a Russ deal McBuckets needs to be certified tank commander. He absolutely will not win you a single game.

    Roby could end up being one of those under-the-radar acquisitions where he ends up with a larger role than people think.

    Depends on if they think Sochan is ready to start or not. I'd hope either him or Roby start and they move McDermott ASAP.

    Yeah, I can't see any interest until he's an ending contract next season.

    Good point. I forgot that he still has another year left on his deal.

    Anyones contract can be moved with sufficient draft picks attached.

    I absolutely hated the Doug McDermott contract. I just hated the signing in general. I didn't want him at all. I am guessing the Spurs thought he'd provide spacing and open it up for others, but I always thought it was a massive reach. Turns out it was .

    Everyone and their mother knew it was a reach but the sniffers.

    A win now team in desperate need of shooting in theory is where McB needs to be. Lakers would be a great destination, but the Westbrook Disaster is obviously precluding that. I don't know, maybe he can be an extremely over-priced veteran that imparts wisdom and shooting form suggestions, ideally from the bench.

    Yeah, McB will help us lose games, but we have young players in need of minutes that can do that just fine all by themselves. It's a bad fit at this point. But the team salary is generally low so someone has to fill it up, I suppose.

    Bottom line, the problem with McB is in how much he plays and whose minutes he takes. In the general scheme of this year he isn't going to disrupt "the Tank" and propel us to the 9th seed or anything like that. He was brought in to help Pop make a push for the record, and we got that, and now, well, he's just kind of here.

    Doug can definitely still hoop, are you guys crazy? His contract is not an albatross that we’ll have to use picks to move if we desire ( Duncan Robinson says o ). ing to be ing…….

    He’s one of the worst defenders in the league and that causes more problems then whatever benefit he brings on offense because he can’t score 1-1. Now. If playing him means they have to play Sochan to cover for him, then that would be interesting, I suppose, but I’d rather just play the young guys. I didn’t think minimizing McB would be a hot take.

    So you saying Doug’s a role player? Bingo….. he has an elite skill. I agree he should be moved but not because he’s some type of horrible signing.

    Plenty on this board…… overpay compared to who with the same skill set? Don’t forget apples to apples

    One-way players in their 30s are a bad way to spend money for a rebuilding team

    Not if you need spacing for ballhandlers that can't shoot.

    You can easily make both arguments
    Having shooters helps your young points develop

    Well after this season he might actually get you an asset back if you flip him when he‘s on a 1-year deal
