Just like the play ground when we were kids...you learn the older kids tendency and get comfortable with their intimidating antics. I think Ingram will be a really valuable asset to the franchise. I m so glad we didn't pull the cousins trade rumor,

His offensive game is very limited: he can't shoot and isn't a creative finisher around the rim. His defense game doesn't seem good enough to impact NBA level talent (its rare to have a player good enough to do that).

Based on playing time and the eyeball test, it seems Randle has separated himself from Nance.

I wonder if a package of Lou + Nance can get us a good stretch 4. It would be a really nice compliment to Randle and Ingram in the front court, if we can get a guy with similar size to Nance, but a better shooter to help with spacing on offense and rebounding on defense.

I kinda don't agree with your assessment of Nance, here. He's only a 2nd year player. By no means is he polished, but you make it sound like he brings nothing to the table to help the team, has zero shot, and none of the freakish athletic ability that he displays when he plays. Which just simply isn't true, IMO.

Nance will be dirty for us. I think his skill set is different than Randle and both will be valuable.

Yea I'm a big Nance fan as well. He's the kind of energy, can do it all guy every good team has coming off the bench. Also, his skill set is so perfectly different from Randle it gives you a ton of flexibility at 4 when choosing different lineups.

Agree. I have no issues with him. If he can continue improving his shooting, he will be fine rotational player for us.

Maybe i was a bit harsh, he's good which is why i think we can get something of value back for him and Lou.

He's 2 years older than Randle, and many of his skills are redundant so I'd be open to trading him for a player that's more complimentary to Randle so you can play them together.
Yi gone, Anthony Brown gone. World peace makes the team. I'm good with all this.

We have a lot of long athletic players.
Is A brown just not NBA material? Really had high hopes. I dont mind keeping Metta at all, but i think he could have been hired as a coach.

Oh ya. He may avg 2-3 minutes a game, but his energy in practice and vet savvy is crucial for this team right now. Deng is the only veteran leader on the defensive side of the ball. You don't want nic young and lou williams teaching anyone rotations.

Haha nice. Still a fan of his.
Watching him in the twilight years has been fascinating. Guy has really done a 180 from his years as a Pacer. Who better to mentor the young bucks w all the things he has been thru in his career, he loves LA too.

I'm a Kings fan and the guy was always good to us as well. We traded Peja for him and he turned around our 2006 season. Last time we even made the playoffs. Yikes.
