    Knox has very little value. Slow footed, inefficient, terrible defense, low motor

    Heís about as low value as a second year lottery pick can be. If he had any value, would have probably been traded away in a package already

    You think if we could have packaged him for anything decent, he wouldnít have been gone already? He shoots under average from 3. Badly from everywhere else. Doesnít pass. Doesnít rebound. Horrible defender. You actually think heís valuable?

    A team would take him, try and see if thereís anything they can do with him. But heís not getting a good return. We have a bunch of guys like that. For what they would bring back, might as well keep them and see if they improve

    Well yea if your judging him off last year when he didn't get any playing time he looked like a scrub not gonna lie

    But the problem is his rookie year he won rookie of the month and he was the youngest player to drop 28 15

    With young guys they show flashes of their potential dude barely has an nba body yet let him get bigger an develop

    Im telling you know if we do trade him even for lamelo like i want to we are going to regret it

    Even in his rookie year, his numbers were not good. And according to metrics, was among the worst players in the league

    Last year was even worse.

    Our team was the worst in the nba his rookie year
    This year he didn't get alot of playing time

    If we get conley or cp3 or better yet lamelo knox becomes more valuable when you factor in once he gets bigger he's a stretch 4 next to mitch and rj thats really good

    C'on Adam Silver. Cancel the season already so we can move on and get this draft going. And give us the dam 1st pick for once

    I don't believe in cancelling the season.

    The vast majority of people that have had serious illness or death from COVID is overwhelmingly older. Something like 80+% over 45 and a like percentage of deaths over 59. The majority of those getting seriously ill have had underlying conditions.

    I would say that there were greater risks with AIDS, than there are with COVID for players and coaches to come back and play in controlled settings where people are tested and cleared on a regular basis.

    In the initial weeks when little was known, it was prudent to be careful, but with all the data available from the world, including countries that never shut down or took extreme measures, there is no reason for them not to resume the season.

    They are going to resume, but it doesnít seem like non playoff teams will be included.

    And if we did get it, there really is no player out there who would be a big difference maker . I happen to like this kid Haliburton from Iowa State. Not going to make us a playoff team but a very good addition.

    Tell that to my friends..35 and 40. No health issues known. Or my friends brother, 28. Or my Dads wifeís co workers family, 6 of them of varying ages, no serious issues

    The only thing thatís known, is they donít know a lot yet. Itís very short-sighted to say ďthereís no reasonĒ. All it would take is one serious issue to make it a disaster. Plus, in sport, as opposed to normal life, close contact/touching is not avoidable

    I live in new York area and know a lot of people and only one person directly that had covid. They were elderly and never developed serious symptoms.

    My point is that as an individual, your experience can vary, but as a whole the data is the data. Including the fact that as much as 30% of the population has been exposed and over 75% of them completely asymptomatic.

    The other point is also that we are talking about regular life versus a controlled setting with ample resources.

    What makes you say that his shot is good?

    His shot has potential, but unless he can shoot with less arc, I donít see how he ever becomes a consistent shooter. He also got worse at the FT line this season which was very disappointing.

    The only thing that improved was his defense, but he had nowhere to go but up considering how awful he was defensively as a rookie.

    He started off the year shooting 50 % from 3 and stayed in the 40s the majority of the season

    His freethrows did suck but that part is mental our whole team was bad freethrow shooter except frank thats coaching
