My first thought was Sessions, because Jack is just running the hell out of the offense, but we are overstacked on the front line. Why would you cut a guard to make room for Noah?
Especially since THJr and Lee can play the 3...

We only need one extra pg.... Lee can play point too as well as THJr in stints. Keeping Baker as the 3rd point guard in case of injury is enough. We got guys in the g league to call up if we need anything more.

I think Noah is gonna have a throwback performance. His intangibles is what will make the difference. Same story with the bigs. KOQ is great to have as 4th big. We can use the g league for anything n more.

We absolutely need a legit NBA small fwd

You know why I'm here....

I would say KOQ because of semantics but to be honest Id rather keep him than Noah UNless the Cs love Willy so much that theyd give us Jaylen Brown:)

Sessions makes the most sense if we cut someone, but i think they are looking for a trade and O'Quinn is the most logical trade piece.

I think the trade they will make is Kuz...they will not cut sessions, because baker has been horrible and with Jack..injury risk and Frank being a rook, they will keep him, unless they get a pg back in a trade. If they traded KO now they will get cents on the dollar because no one is going to give up much this early in the season. Unless there was an injury and he was the replacement...Trade deadline will yield better offers....Kuz you can get a protected 2nd...that's all you need..because what we really want to accomplish right now is a roster spot....now if in Jan we are in the playoff mix 6-9 seed...you can get more for KO and others...

I think Supa-Beas is the odd man out - people think Mills and Co are that attached to him?

Beas has potential as a scorer...plus if you can trade Kuz and not take back $$$ I rather have that clear off the books because Beas is out after the year.

Exactly where is Noah going? Voluntary retirement?

Out of the 5 guys we have--Id have to rank Noah 5. Obviously he amkes a ton fo cash so hes going nowhere but how can anyone justify any of the others? IF we have to make a cut--best bet is KUZ or Sessions.

Not sessions because Jack could blow out any time. Beasley still has "potential" (I guess). KOQ or Willy have too much value. Noah's going nowhere. Baker has the contract. Thomas is where we're thin.

Kuz.

I get all the negativity over Thomas. When he has a clearly defined role, and healthy, Thomas is a quality glue guy.

The rotation looks like it is starting to solidify, been a few years since we could really say that. Im guessing that Thomas will become more valuable as the season goes along. I would be surprised if he was moved.

Kuz or Beas. Thomas has to stay, he’s the only SF who can play good physical defense when we play the C’s or anybody else with a big athletic 3.
