With Cavs about to land Korver and on the lookout for veteran backup PG wonder if Sergio's name might surface.

Now that Sixers have an open roster spot, rumors of them going after Mike Dunleavy Jr. :q: :q: :q: :q:

he's pretty talented, and would probably be our best SF but would be a road block to Dario minutes. Plus we're still basically naked at PG.

Reports that Atlanta/Cleveland need a third team which is where the Sixers rumor of getting Mike Dunleavy came from...

Cavs need to dump some salary

Windhorst said it wasn't us...

Don't get why we cut Hollis a week early if we aren't going to immediately fill the spot.
Two days later I get a text back that says I'm a basketball player and a businessman, not a Thundercat.

Not that I'm a hashtag kind of guy, but I'm kind of proud of the one I just posted to Bodner on Twitter:

#Okafornada

Get it?

I'm such a dork.

Anyway, I really want us to be a third team in a Millsap deal. Wish I could Jeltzy the heck out of that, but kids and stuff...

On offense? Absolutely. On defense we might struggle against quick guards.

Wojo says Sixers interested in Milsap, but to keep him, not as just a tool in a three-team trade..

We'll just move Ilyasova to the 3 and Dario to the 2. :)

I'm kind of shaky on Ball with his FT%. I was worried about Ingram as a shooter pre-draft because of his below average FT% (.682) and Ball is actually worse there (.646).

I just checked the top 20 3pt shooters this season based on percentages. Of the ones who played in the NCAA (17/20), Jae Crowder, Mike Conley, and Zach LaVine are the only ones who averaged under .700 from the free throw line. None of those guys were exactly drafted as shooters either. Meanwhile, only four of the 17 guys shot over .400 from 3. League leader Channing Frye shot .759 from the FT line and .261 from 3 over his collegiate career. Average FT% for them was .782 and average 3pt% was .364.

Long story short, bad free throw shooting in college is scary if you're drafting a guy as a shooter.

Apparently it was in the original article but the Sixers (and New Orleans) were removed
