    OK. Not exactly the wing addition I had in mind. Wouldn't have given him the entire mid level. Better than Ellington though.

    Oooof course they are, that seems like the only players we can get. Feels like we’re yet again over correcting as well, all old dudes last season so let’s sign some 22/23 year olds with no big game experience to add to Reaves, Stan, and Gabriel.

    i'll reserve judgment until i see who goes for the mini mle when it's all done.

    walker would have been an above-min, below-mle target for me.

    he is athletic, though, which folks wanted.

    Disappointed in this signing with Warren still out on the board.

    Warren will get more than 6.1, unfortunately.

    Waste of the TPMLE I think, especially on a guard

    He fell out of the Spurs rotation last year until they traded White away

    For what it's worth, he did start playing much better towards the second half of last season.

    15.3 ppg, 44% from the field, 37% from 3 after the all star break

    WTF …. Over??? Did we NOT listen to our scouts AGAIN? Jeezus Criste Reaves is better than this guy sounds and should be starting over him. What am I missing? Cue Nancy Kerrigan WAIL!

    Do I need to apologize to Kenzo now for bagging on him a little while ago for always expecting the worst?

    OR is the FO listening to their scouts and they see enough in Walker to check off important boxes they feel will improve under the new coaching staff?? I don’t like it when Cranjis doesn’t like what we’re doing or have done. :speechless:

    he won't beat reaves out, and i don't think ham will hand him the spot, either. he's going to have to earn it.

    it's a one-year deal, too, folks. we're still posturing for FA next year with all these moves (i don't love it, but maybe they know what they're doing).

    But why give HIM all that money then over someone Bigger with as much apparently mediocre skills and not playing Reaves’s probably best position, who plays for far less money?
