    It's been a long time coming.

    I still believe in his potential. Only 23. Handy is going to give him direction.

    We needed another wing. Lewis isn't ready this year.

    It’s fine if it’s the minimum. He can be the new Lonnie Walker.

    Handy worked his magic on Rui, lets see if he can with Cam

    Exactly what I’m talking about!!! This is what I love to see. Well done Rob.

    I believe everyone will enjoy this kid, what a great young wing with tons of upside.

    He get a lot of flak, but he was cooking in ATL before he sprained his ankle and was traded to NYK, where he never had a chance. Seemed to have a good stretch in Portland and isn't even 24. I'm down with this pickup. We aren't asking him to be a starter or even our first SF off the bench. Learn from Phil and make the most of this opportunity.

    i have very low expectations at this point, but the talent is definitely there. don't see him out-competing prince, vando, or rui for minutes, so he'll have to try to take advantage of injuries.

    He can hoop.

    If Handy and Ham can get him to buy in defensively, he's going to be a hell of a value.

    Thibs couldn't get through to him, but I don't think he's a player's coach or any good at development. Ham is.

    He’s more of a SG than a SF. Might be our Lonnie Walker type guy off the bench.

    Not expecting much, but this is a project I was hoping to see how our staff would fare out.

    Wanted him last year, he’s young, has size, good prospect, played well with the Blazers. Could be a steal potentially.

    This was the game that caused me to buy all of my Cam Reddish stock. Came back in the playoffs from his injury



    The poise he showed at 21, I was ready to trade for him and see what we could groom him into.

    LW4 wanted playing time. We can't give him that. There's a reason Beas is still shooting at the facility and we heard the team was talking to him last night and not Lonnie.

    That off ball defense is brutal: he'll get picked on in the playoffs with that

    I know we "swapped" Prince for Brown but Reddish will get the Brown role. Eat up regular season mins if any wing is injured and probably won't get playing time in the playoffs.

    i view it as:

    reddish for walker (wash to loss)
    schroder for vincent (wash to win)
    bamba for hayes (wash to loss)
    beasley for prince (wash to win)

    obviously it will all depend on fit and future performance; the above is based on past performance. not sure where brown fits, as we didn't add another vet min wing this year.

    Beas and Prince a wash?? No way.
    Prince can defend and actually hit shots. Malik gave us maybe one or two games all season in which he looked like an actual basketball player. Prince has had a solid career so far.
