    After Ainge’s comments the other day interesting that Semi and Grant nowhere or be found

    Yeah I know numbers often are good but he regularly looks stiff and in impactful on the floor

    That may be Kemba’s best half in a calendar year

    The Athletic: Poll on hypothetical, proposed trade for John Collins

    Yes but not the whole $28.5 mil TPE which is what you suggested was the cost of it. The nature of the player is most likely going to be 3-5 mil (as indicated by guys unnamed and their timelines) though I guess you could get higher on a second-contract guy. Anyway, characterizing that I was...

    The Athletic: Poll on hypothetical, proposed trade for John Collins

    I don't think you are interested in what I posted, and arguing against your straw-man is not very interesting (for example, I did not suggest using the TPE, and I did not argue for obtaining a player who is admittedly worse than another option). You only make such a move if you believe strongly...

    The Athletic: Poll on hypothetical, proposed trade for John Collins

    It's not unreasonable at all, though (as I said quite clearly) it is unlikely. You imagine that everyone has the same evaluation of the upside of a player---that is not how the real world works. It is certainly possible that you assess a player's upside differently than other teams do---we...

    The Athletic: Poll on hypothetical, proposed trade for John Collins

    I think the other way to think about it is that you might be able to use the TPE to acquire someone who is not today as good as Collins, but who you believe in. Imagine Jimmy Butler early in his career. That is I think the most likely way you get someone better in the end than Collins is...

    The Athletic: Poll on hypothetical, proposed trade for John Collins

    It's a hypothetical among beat writers, so not even reflecting expertise of analysts or former front office types. For me, Collins fits a strong need in a couple ways---adding a better "third" player; adding a creator; adding quality size. But he's also well away from the ideal fit, given...

    2021 NFL: QB Carousel

    One indicator of how serious Watson is about forcing the trade will be how aggressively he approaches the media going forward---is he going to continue saying he wants out, taking interviews, perhaps begin to take shots at the owner, Easterby, or others? Perhaps leak in a deniable but clear way...

    Yes, I agree Carsen's degree of difficulty in college was high. But the poor shooting in the pros does not suggest he's a better shooter who was hurt by the difficulty of his shots either. That's why I struggle with the comps---those guys pretty definitively have better track records as...

    I do not believe the Wizards announcers have any idea whatsoever what actual NBA front offices would or would not do. Nor the Celtics announcers, though Gorman has been around a long time and is pretty sharp. Fair enough that it remains possible he will be those guys. But I'm not sure how...

    I liked the Carsen pick and of course loved the concept of him after that first summer league. But the reality is that absolutely all the evidence since then is that he is not an NBA player, isn't it? He doesn't shoot well enough to have that be a calling card, and there's nothing else he does...
