    McNair hasnít really tipped his hat as to what he is trying to do. He hasnít torn the team apart for a total re-build, but he also hasnít made any big moves to make us better. Iím all for continuity, but this team needs much more than that. Iím looking forward to seeing what happens this off-season.

    I think Mcnair has his work cut out for him. What big splash can he make? We are near the salary cap and our only worthwhile tradable assets are

    Marvin Bagley- No one seems to want to give anything of value. We likely have to stick with him.

    Buddy Hield. going into next season will have 3 years left on his contract. Likely one of 2 of our most movable assets. He will be easier to move this season compared to last season.

    Harrison Barnes. Same situation as Buddy Hield. 3 more seasons.

    It seems to me that our team is not as good as the salary we have spent. Things won't get easier with either paying Holmes. or having a lesser quality team by letting him go and making Damian Jones the starter.

    I hate to say it but we are going to be draft dependent on getting better.

    I think you may be right about being draft dependent. The guys that weíre paying (Barnes, Buddy, presumably Holmes) are solid complementary pieces if you have stars. I think Fox is on his way to stardom and I have my fingers crossed for Hali, but those two arenít good enough right now to carry the other guys to be a contender. McNair may be able to surprise us with a big trade, but Iím not counting on it. My biggest hope for the team right now is that the draft gods shine on us at the lottery.

    I am with you on Fox and Haliburton. I think we have something with Fox and Haliburton. Bagley shows flashes but with all the injuries he is a poor mans version of Porzingis.

    I am thinking we are likely looking at another borderline playoff team next season. Our success next season will be dependent on Bagley being healthy and improving. Our future will be on the development of our youth and a successful 2021 draft. Our trade value will be 2022 with Barnes and Hield having only 2 seasons left on their contract and both of their salaries decline in amount.

    Also rumors that the Kings are shopping the 9th pick hard to either move into the top 5 or get an established vet. Chances are they won't be picking at 9.

    If Monte gets us into the top 5 using our pick and Bagley he gets exec of the year.

    Its tough thinking of a trade to get us top 5. The talent really drops from 6 to 9 and those teams in the top 5 seem to be rebuilding. I think Toronto might be the most interesting trade partner. Pascal Siakam could likely be moved. Not sure how Mcnair feels about Siakam. Siakam seem to have lost favor in Toronto last year.

    Landon Buford
    @LandonBuford.

    Pelicans are talking Brandon Ingram deals with 5 teams. Knicks, Heat, 76ers, Kings, and Rockets, per Source.

    This was a Twitter rumor. I donít know who Landon Buford is, but Iím all on board with this if it doesnít involve Fox or Hali.

    It would probably need to be Barnes, Buddy, #9 and future picks.
