The question is - do we want to use Zeller's $13m to address the center position now or in the offseason?

I can't stand him anymore.. JB sat him in the 1st half for the rest of the game because he was atrocious.. LA kept switching him onto LeBron and he was bbq chicken 🐔 💀..

I think we gotta make something happen..

Agreed...we sure don’t have anybody else

I think the team will look at the buyout market.

guys that are bought out will be jumping to title contenders.. not 5-10 seed teams (which we are)..

I know this season has been exciting for a lot of us - but don't get it twisted - we are not an attractive FA destination.. not to mention the FA big men this offseason won't move the needles for us.. the expiring $15m (Zeller) in salary dollars is worth more to small-market teams on the Trade Market than the FA Market..

we just have to make smart trades that don't disrupt the long-term success of the organization.. either you use the $15m now OR reinvest to lockup Monk/Graham.. if we use it to lockup Monk, we still have a huge hole in the middle of the defense

I say we flip Zeller now for someone like Myles Turner, let Graham walk and do our best to keep Monk.. if he cashes in with someone else - so be it..

Ball - Terry - Hayward - PJ - Turner = top 4 seed in East next year

we cant lose both monk & graham...and I say graham is more valuable than monk

with that said, we have to get better in the middle

You seem to know the potential buyout market more than me.  I agree that most bought out want a  contender.  However, you don't think there is a big that wants minutes and potentially rehabilitate image?  Show your potential on a team with cap space and definite need at C.

Spurs tonight, a game we play without Melo.  Gonna be interesting.  Need some folks to step up.  The good news is valuable playing time for our younger guys...would love to see our young bigs get some time...Carey in particular.

Also a good time to showcase some trade options.

Huge win against a solid Spurs playoff team. The schedule does get a bit easier down the stretch I believe and we definitely do have enough talent to still be a top 6 seed and get some playoff experience -- if some of our inconsistent guys (PJ especially) can step it up and try to fill the void of Melo. It really sucks Melo is out and I'd love to get another high lottery pick that we could hit on to pair with Melo going forward, but if we can pull it off and get a top 6 seed I'd also love to see this team back in the playoffs. Even without Melo, guys like PJ, Bridges, Graham, Monk could use some really valuable playoff experience

What a gut Che k win...Hayward played really well

mills has a wide open look to tie us, but misses 

we are certainly not as good without melo, but this team is tough

best FT shooting team I’ve seen in a long time

need to beat Houston and get back home

Houston game tonight, road game against a team that lost 20 straight and then won their last one.

With Gordon and our young guys, we should be able to handle them.  Graham gets a chance to lead the team.
