I am starting to like him more, but he remains a poor decision maker and low IQ player. On that count I would trade him - for the right deal

he's lost weight, came into the season in terrific shape, is a NYer, likeable. i'd rather pay him than ron effin baker or lance effin thomas.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

7pts, 7rebs, 1.5 blocks in 17 minutes.

That's about 15, 15, and 3 in starter's minutes. I think he could get about 4 years, 60 mil, which is too much.

Hes going to get paid-but 15mm? I was thinking 4 years 36- 40mm$ Im not worried about consistency---look at his lifetime numbers--not only is he ticking up--one of his attributes is consistency. There will be games where he doesnt make an imprint because of lack of minutes--thats consistent with ALL bench players and 3 point shooters as well--but its the sum of the play


Knicks have o trade him Briggs they can't be stupid here. We will end up losing him for nothing. It makes zero sense to keep him with Noah and Willy locked up on the roster. I know everyone is excited but this team still needs a lot more talent. We still need a 3 very badly. This team won't be a real contender until they get a star SF. If we can get another chance at one with a draft pick i'd do it in a second

Blue collar role player.

There's no home town discount. Guy isn't a superstar...he gots to get paid while he can.

I'd rather overpay for none of those 3 (Baker, Thomas, O'Quinn).

O'Quinn plays both sides of the court and he's a top rebounder. Having a guy like that coming in off the bench is valuable. You don't want to overpay for anyone, but if he's willing to come back at a reasonable contract, then you bring him back.

Love the guy and would love to keep him BUT it makes more sense to trade him instead of potentially losing him for nothing

I will hold my cards until deadline--we need to do nothing right now but observe.

The Cavs will be desperate for a big guy, even Domantas Sabonis is picking them apart

Oladipo has played really well for Indy. That deal won't seem so one sided if Oladipo can produce consistently like he has so far.

I like Dipo, but no way he keeps up this pace. He's shooting 46% from 3. But if he maintains a scoring average in the low 20s with a solid shooting percentage,than Indiana will be more than happy. Dipo, even at his current salary, would be a bargain compared to the max PG will get.
