Lets say we get all 4 picks..no way we can keep all 4 unless we get rid of some guys, not enough room on roster..let Morris, Rozier, and others walk after season end is only way...or big trade 😁😁😁

Why would you suggest letting Morris walk when he probably has been our 2nd best player so far this year and probably the most consistent. I want "Money" aka Morris to stay on this team.

If we can keep Morris for $8-10M annually, Im with it 100%.

If hes looking for $12-15M+ per, I dont know.

And considering Smart basically got that, he may be worth it too.

Hes been great for us, hes the only one getting the job done off the bench.
Morris wants to, and deserves to, have a starting job. The only negative in his play this year has been the (sometimes very) frustrating turnovers. He wants to get paid as well. I'm sure he's looking something north of what Marcus Smart got from the C's. No way he is back with this team next year.

Edit: We also have players and draft picks to use to replace MM when he bolts. Boston is also a team other veterans will want to come to play for. Some may not be the caliber of MM but some will. MM is just an excellent fit here so I'll be disappointed when he leaves.

I think Dedric Lawson of Kansas could be a steal with a late round pick if they all convey. Really good size for a forward at 69 and 235 pounds. He has the exact same height and weight as Marcus Morris and also has a swagger to him that reminds me of Morris as well. Definitely think he could be a nice replacement if we were to let Morris go in free agency.

There are a lot of guys with the same height and weight as Morris but 90% of them I wouldn't want shooting the ball over Morris and certainly not a rookie that might develop in 3 years.


Hey Jaylen. I bet 519 Tommy Points on you guys and lost

Morris is playing great now, but mostly disappeared during the playoffs after finishing the regular season strong last year.  He just seems like a streaky player fast approaching 30.  I wouldnt be opposed to flipping him by the trade deadline, if we cant re-sign him on a short term reasonable deal.

Please let's not play the stash game again, not at this point. Put together a trade, or trade up.

Relax, I didnt say he was better than Morris I just said that he reminds me of him and could be a steal in the late first round.

Obviously wed all like to keep Morris but the reality is that we might not be able too so we have to look at some other options and in my opinion Dedric Lawson could be a decent replacement.

TP for pointing him out.  Kansas is playing on ESPN2 tonight.

Thanks, Id definitely recommend checking him out. He had 20 points, 14 rebounds, and 6 assists versus a very good Michigan State team last week.

I like our chances of having 4 pics next year... clippers if healthy will fight for the 8th playoff spot.. memphis if healthy is not a bottom 8 team and the kings eventually will be a top 10 pic.. i think not top 3 anyway..

Would be good to add a 3 and D guy who is ready. Like an upgrade of semi.

Also a Rozier replacement, and maybe a rebounding big. Remember those?

Shame it's a weak class, could maybe trade picks for future picks. Teams in win-now and bloated payrolls might bite

A guy who I'd be keen on with one of our first rounders, especially ours, is Brian Bowen. We know Ainge was interested in him last year, but Williams fell unexpectedly so it was irrelevant.

His NCAA ineligibility sucks, but he's playing in the Australian NBL and is doing much better than Terrance Ferguson (OKC) was at the same age. The NBL also isn't a bad league, with numerous Summer League guys playing over here.

He's a good scorer, good nose for the ball and has some good length. Could be useful off the bench

Yeah, this one may be the most important pick, after the top 10 from Sacto.
I'm keeping an eye on Darius Garland from Vandy. He looks good already but waiting for the competition to ramp up.
