    Try Fredi the pizza man in Melvindale. Portnoy was right, it’s outstanding

    That appears to be a ridiculous place. $10 guacamole is ridiculous.

    $10 Guac beats $2000 daycare

    It seems like we circling 2023 as when we start truly competing.

    Weaver's methods are a little weird for me, but he's put them in position where they're flexible with the cap to do a bunch of different things depending on the development of the young players progresses. I appreciate that.

    I don't think it's even possible for us to trade for him. At the very least, Grant and probably Okynyk would have to be in the deal.

    According to trade machine it is impossible without us adding Cade. Bey or Stewart to the trade. Everyone eligible to be traded beside those 3 (including Grant) would fall 3 mil short of a legal trade. Can't add Olynyk until after 3 months of the date he signed his contract.

    That rumor makes zero sense for so many reasons

    It's nice to be relevant enough to be included when agents and front offices leak bullshit "trade interest" stories.

    Isn’t Wall bad now? Would we trade for him to get our first back or something?

    Thats $90m on the salary cap the next two years. Would need our pick back plus another (my opinion).

    That Wall stuff is based on this tweet. I have no clue who Mitch Lawrence is, but I'm inclined to believe he's an idiot based on this. Houston is trying to move one of the worst contracts in the league, and Wall's not easy to fit just anywhere around the league. How exactly are they going to "win" that transaction? And what the hell does the Harden deal have to do with it?

    I don’t think there is any way they get rid of wall without giving up significant assets.

    And they did the harden thing specifically to tank

    And they would have to give up even more now or during the season if he's not going to play games for them.
