TB imo. He’s ready for it and most likely offered that in negotiations.

TB and DJ are the only good signings I like.

Walker, Brown, JTA, and drafting MC are 💩

37 games played the last two years. Hopefully he has some athleticism left.

I'm assuming a minimum contract - correct?

Yes. We already used the mmle on Lonnie Walker.

I still want Dwight but this is great news.

I think we are out of spots but hopefully after the Kyrie situation sorts itself out we can sign him then

So happy he’s back. Don’t expect him 100% until later this fall. He supposedly lost some mobility and gets bullied DL, but I welcome his floor spacing and his wingspan. Welcome home Summer League Champion, Dirt off my shoulder celebration, Thomas Bryant.

Great move! This past season, after he came back from his ACL injury, his numbers looked good, except for his 3-point shooting. But his overall shooting, rebounds, blocked shots and dunk numbers look about on par with what they were before his injury.

How much mobility has he lost after that injury? Can he still run the floor well?

I’m hoping he will round into shape later in the season and get back to himself. The floor spacing and fire he plays with are much needed.

I worry about the mobility against speed and his strength to give us minutes against Jokic. But this is a good gamble for the minimums we have to work with to fill this spot right now.

Great pick up. Outside of Walker, I really like the moves. Out center rotation is looking strong: Jones, Bryant, AD

Is everyone forgetting this guy had a partially torn ACL and hasn’t played a full season since who knows when. Does any of this sound familiar?

Yeah welcome back but we should have never lost you in the first place…

Sorry I’m somewhat suspect on this signing, it seems premature and reactive we should have waited unless he’ll be included in a trade…

Read it again it has nothing to do with TB, although his injury is questionable… There’s not a lot of upside on an oft injured player who’s coming off an ACL injury. Me being suspect is more about the move overall, if he’s just a minimum signing why now? We can get that anytime, and That’s my point!
