Best add of this Free Agency
Didn't realize he was shooting THAT well these days. Didn't (that well) when we had him. Of course.
Welcome back Duke!
Some more stats
lets hope the curse doesn't ruin him, he wasn't all that great here 1st time around
It don't mean a thing if it ain't go that swing...
Does he have anything left in the tank?
I'm hoping all those numbers mean, "He shoot good".
weird that shot poorly from corners, isnt that the closet range one?
Let's make an allowance for the shooting curse aka less 7-10 percentage points upon wearing purple and gold
Love this signing. Welcome back!!
OK, this is awesome. Please don't forget how to shoot...otherwise - welcome back man!
Good pickup. Has been shooting it very well.
Hopefully his defense can improve so the Lakers can afford to play him
in a world where reggie bullock gets 3/30 and duncan robinson gets 5/90, this is a huge win.
Duncan Robinson is crazy overpaid....teams just won't learn. I guess thats normal and one has to get used to it.
Lonzo getting 20+ and all these "rookies" getting max deals around 200 mio...its kind of insane.
People were screaming when Paul signed that 4 year deal 3 years ago...now he signs another 4 year deal worth 120 Mio...last 2 years are going to be ugly but who gives a damn these days...Even Dinwiddie getting 20+ a year...
those big deals squeeze the market for the mid-tier players, making guys take vet mins that are probably worth substantially more, too.
the duncan robinson thing confuses me because he's a specialist. he grades out as a poor defender, and he doesn't do much on offense other than hit threes. 18 million per is a lot for that. joe harris got 20, but he does more on offense (can attack on the dribble a bit, is actually a better shooter, statistically) and less of a minus on defense (though he was worse last year by some metrics).
anyway, if you just lined up last year's numbers, ellington looks a lot like those two guys, and we got him for the minimum. with those savings, you can do things like retain alex car...
wait...is ellington saying he talked to rob prior to the russ trade?
