I wouldn't be mad. Looney deserves to get paid. His screens/offensive rebounds mindset was key during the postseason. Wiggins/Poole looking to re-up aswell. Not every can't get pay. I wouldn't mind if we lose a couple of guys. Like iggy/opj/chiosa/lee/Bjelica/jta I want to see the young core in action (wiseman,moody,kuminga,gp2,poole)

My stance hasn't changed about him he's serviceable but would much rather prefer to have someone like Javale McGee

Would be nice to dump OPJ, Beli, Lee and JTA for better players. It sounds like they want to bring back OPJ and Beli.

Lee and JTA are the most vulnerable.

Baldwin is gonna take up a roster spot as a 1st round pick.

Iggy likely retiring.

They might leave the 15th roster spot open to save tax money or incase they find someone they really like as was the case last season with GP2.

That's been the rumor before this one came out especially since Mike Brown's the coach now.

Looney's biggest a*set is being able to guard perimeter players. I dunno if we can find someone else who can do that who will also be ok with a limited role.

His size and mobility is really rare. The way he can switch onto guards is also not going to be easily replaced. Kuminga is going to improve pretty quickly though and I can see him fitting into this role pretty nicely, with more offensive consistency too

He used to be much more agile and athletic before his hip injuries. They called him "Baby KD" in high school after he went throw a crazy growth spurt. He used to have guard skills.

I could do with out JTA and Lee. I like OPJ. Was a good defender and fit in well with the offense. I think they bring Beli back to have a big who could space the floor if need be. They need to bring back GP2 though

Wouldn't mind replacing OPJ with Ibaka or Blake Griffin and replacing Beli with Joe Ingles (depending on how his ACL recovery is going)

If those guys don't want come then I'd bring back OPJ and Beli.

EDIT: Hold up... OPJ is only 29?

Feels like he's 35.

I mean Wiseman “should” take his minutes. He’d be resigning knowing he was injury insurance

what a copycat league?

“sure Looney will play championship defense in your team’s system.”

i wonder if teams just want to weaken the champs.

the most underrated aspect to looney right there.

in multiple series...teams had a gameplan that was based on getting him switched on the high pick and roll and letting a guard beat him on iso.

but dude has such good fundamental footwork and is too disciplined to bite on ball/shot fakes that it never really worked and the other team abandoned that gameplan. statistically he was the best defender on luka/mavs.



it was real lowkey a few year ago...but i remember houston tried to get him on the switch and iso with james harden. and they never really got the looks they wanted off him as a defender back then. he has only gotten better as a defender since then.

overpaying a role player after a great playoff run is always fool's gold. some players just have a team's number.

also warriors can always bring back Avery Bradley if they lose GP2, not a huge drop off imo
