    The buy-out market

    Any way we could get our hands on Greg Monroe and possibly Tony Allen (if he's bought out?).

    Moose is a big body to throw in the mix, and TA would be great in a mentor role for Tatum and Brown.

    Just throwing this out there!

    Any other bought-out players we could/should be targeting?

    Tony Allen will be bought out. I have interest. I think he has nothing left in the tank.

    I have strong interest in Greg MOnroe. DPE I have been saying for a while now.

    Not interested in TA...doesnít help out bench scoring any.

    If Joe Johnson is bought out I might be interested in him.

    I think Monroe goes to the pelicans tho

    We got Monroe for $5M. I don't think we get to use the rest of that exception though.

    Yeah, DPE it's gone. You can only use it once.
    Basketball is like war in that offensive weapons are developed first, and it always takes a while for the defense to catch up.

    Thatís correct, you canít split the DPE over multiple players. Iím surprised we got Monroe for $5M instead of the full DPE though. Good move in terms of saving real dollars.

    After monroe signing, ideal situation is to move Smart and a pick for Tyreke evans and sign tony allen as the 11th man.

    Kyrie/Rozier/Larkin
    Brown/Evans/Tony Allen
    Tatum/Morris/Ojeleye
    Horford/Theis/Yabu
    Baynes/Monroe

    Smart won't be moved for Tyreke. 0% chance that can happen even with all the drama lately.

    Tony Allen? Might have it in him, wouldn't surprise me that he doesn't

    Use Morris and/or Smart to obtain a 2/3 that can hit shots and not awful on D.

    Smart and a pick for Lou Williams? Lou isnt good on defense, but his shooting would be great for the 2nd unit.

    Celtics shopping Marcus Smart right now according to Woj on his podcast. So much for that 0% chance lol. Not saying he will get traded, but thats more because celtics want a first round pick and I doubt anyone will give up a first round pick for a marcus smart rental.

    I said 0% chance he gets traded for Tyreke. First round pick is a different story, even though i highly doubt they'll trade him for a low first rounder.

    I highly doubt anyone offers a first rounder for a guy with a .49 WS/48. Much better players out there on the market if a team is giving up a first.

    WE can NOT...one shot deal and only used on an expiring deal or FA so Monroe was a perfect fit.
