    If it looks dumb, acts dumb and talks dumb... it's probably dumb.

    I don't think so. He probably thinks they don't know how to use him, that's all.

    i'm guessing his position is that he's a baller and would find a way to be impactful. and that's fine for him to believe. i agree with him that he wasn't really given a fair shot in the playoffs (we just assumed he'd suck). now, was that assumption based on data? yes.

    really wish schroder would have embraced a bench role. i think it would have saved both.

    Good point. Schroder starting really hurt both of them.

    He's 50/50 on his option and we've discussed trade options including him, as well.

    it's a tough call for harrell. if i were him, i think opt in, tbh. sure, it's possible someone will offer him a 4-year MLE, but that seems unlikely given that nobody did last year, coming off a better season.

    plus, it may be possible that rob and his agent can negotiate his buyout upon completion of a trade, netting him even more cash, in theory.

    Second year in a row and second team in a row his coach basically sat him in the playoffs. I'd be shocked if he gets a 4 year MLE offer at this point. He does have some value to a non-contending team to chew up regular season minutes and score off the bench, but what is that worth in real $$$?

    true. right after i posted that, i was like...nobody goes higher than 3 years/20 million for trez at this point.

    same conclusion, though--he should opt in.

    i liked him, but i understand that he wasn't part of the plan.

    he's gonna bust our a** a couple times a year for sure, and i won't begrudge him.

    Wish all the best for Trez. Appreciated him carrying us for a few stretches last season.
