The guy at the top of my list of players I don't want to trade for:  Terrence Ross.  It's going to be a gut punch to me if we use the TPE on him.

I mean it all depends on what we would pay for that said player.
For example I want Beal, but if we can only get him via sign and trade and on a super max contract I have 0 interest.

T-Ross is a good one. Empty stats / no impact player.

THANK YOU. His name has been brought up on here for like 4 years. I think there's a good reason he's been on the Magic for such a long time, and think he should stay there.

Alec Burks & Nic Batum are two other guys I want no part of.

TBH, most of the players being reported I don't want for some reason or another.  It's just going to be hard to add a true rotation player upgrade with either the MLE or the TPE, which I think pretty much would bring back the same kind player. 

As to the question, I will throw a curve ball.  I'm not a big fan of kuzma.  Seems like a malcontent me sort of guy.  Isn't even an average 3 point shooter and still traumatized by his atrocious defense from earlier in his career.  I know they say he's improved but I think I heard that his defensive metrics are still bad (for what's it's worth).  Perhaps someone into those stats can confirm or deny.

Yeah, Iíve never been a fan and Iím definitely not now.  Iím not even sure heís worth getting just to hold onto a salary slot for a future trade.

I would also only want Duncan Robinson if he came with some additional compensation.  Partly I donít think heís worth it, and partly helping Miami move his contract might open them up to being able to make a larger move, and that would not be a good thing.

Iíve also seen Davis Bertans name sometimes mentioned.  Canít see that happening for real, but Iíd hate it if it did.

Terrence Ross would be bad: a shooter that can't shoot.

Jae Crowder would be quite underwhelming, but I don't mind the player in general. At least he's a tough competitor.

I don't really want Duncan Robinson even though he's a great shooter. Big $ contract and defensive liability. I'd rather use our big TPE elsewhere and take a shot on Hauser being a viable shooting specialist.

Co-sign. Have zero interest in him. I get that Gallo shoots the 3 ball at 38%, but thatís about all he does well. His defense is poor, rebounding is mediocre, plus heís going to be 34 in a little over a month. No Thank You.

Same. Gallo is probably top of my list.

6 million for a shooter off the bench is actually pretty cheap. 
I was finally wrong. Boston not only didn't win in 5, but didn't win at all.

Does it have to be realistic? Because I would hate for Harden or Ben Simmons coming aboard in any way.

I would be okay with it if he didn't play the same position as G Will. Give me a 6-5 to 6-7 wing with quicker feet instead of a 6-10 Gallo.

Gallo just too old and slow. G Will too bulky and slow. For them not to get in each other's way. Too much diminished returns. Either/or type situation. Not worth losing the MLE over when you can find someone who better complements rather than contrasts G Will.
