And that $2.5M cap hit is so much nicer than KCP's

Need to lock him up on a four year deal. He's the sort of player the roster should be filled with.

Thankfully his cap hold is low, so I think (not sure, would like to see the numbers) we can re-sign him over the cap whilst still getting a max FA

You’re absolutely right, Bullock is the kind of guy we want around Bron long-term

Great pickup. Hopefully he takes all of Lance's minutes.

He will take some but I'm thinking more Josh Hart who's shot has completely disappeared I like Bullock he's a consistent knock down shooter good trade.

There is a place here (and actually, on most teams) for guys who can reliably hit shots from the 3p line and drive the ball. I'm hoping he'll want to stick around a while longer.

Key detail, you can make room to keep his cap hold/bird rights and still have max room for all of the max guys except KD.

I like bullock. Is Luke seasoned enough to strategically use all of our guys? Hart needs minutes and lance has been a nice surprise.

Not sure what the rotations will be especially when Zo comes back.

Since Ellington is going to Detroit to replace Bullock, i would have rather just signed Ellington and kept the draft asset.

RB is younger and can have a place on this team going forward if he pans out. He's bigger, and he's also simply the better shooter.

if we shoots well AND we keep him then it will likely be worth the asset....if not, then it was not worth the draft asset for 25 games. Ellington has a longer resume as a volume 3 point shooter than Bullock, but Bullock has been a little better in recent years.

While 3-point shooting is definitely his calling card, Reggie Bullock shoots one of the league's best percentages from mid-range (50.9%).

Has the abilities to attack closeouts, handle a bit and come off screens from inside the arc.

Reggie Bullock is an absolute marksman when it comes to shooting off screens.

Ranks in the 93rd percentile this year (1.24 points per possession) and was among the 92nd last season (1.28).

Going to be a fun chess piece for the offensive game plans.

Those are fantastic numbers for those shot types. Luke should start him. He should be a real nice fit next to Bron & Rondo.

His cap-hold will be $4.75M in 2019-20?

Sounds like we can keep him if we don't sign KD. That cap hold should be compatible with an Irving/Klay/Kawhi max.

Yes Hart shouldn't play until he is 100% ready. He can be really good for this team but not playing injured. In that case he is damaging the team a lot.

Starting him means to bench Ingram or Kuzma.

I'd probably bench Ingram.

Rondo
Bullock
LBJ
Kuzma
McGee

KCP
Ingram
Chandler/Muscala

I'd run basically a nine man rotation, mostly out of necessity. This makes me realize how much we are really missing Lonzo right now. I'd be in favor of signing Teodosic tbh because I think Lonzo is going to be out for a while (possibly for the rest of the year).

Alternatively, we could go full bron ball mode:

KCP
Bullock
LBJ
Kuzma
Muscala

Rondo
Ingram
McGee/Chandler

LBJ plays point. Something like that could be interesting depending on the matchup (not going to work against the 76ers, obviously).

Agreed, KCP could come off the bench; no big deal.Hart should just rest
up and practice his shot which had not been falling for him after injury.
