Not surprised that Mullens has disappeared- that has always been his MO. Is he saving himself for FA.

If the Cats want to win , they must help the core of Mkg, McRoberts and Henderson . The three are all two way players w hard nose defense w agility. Kemba and Biz are liabilities.add Len or Zeller up front . W a defending pass first pt gd w your second pick in the first round to replace Kemba . Sign a big free agent . Send Kemba to the bench and let him learn to throw lobs , alley oops and to facilitate first . Pargo must go unless he stops jacking . Facilitate and play defense only. The team flows better w Pargo running the point . It does really. Watch. He moves the ball and the players move better and get excited. They know its a possibility that the pt gd may not over dribble , make bad decisions , run the shot clock down and the call his own number and jack.

Hendo is looking more like the keeper if priced fairly. Mullens can go at this point. McRoberts as shown what a scrub post guy can still do on this team.
If we have folliwng for 1st and 2nd team we could be somone:
PG: Kemba / Sessions
SG: McLemore/ Hendo
PG: Free Agent or draft/ McRoberts
Center: FA or draft/ Biz
So very obvious where we need help.
Sad thing is Blazxers pick likely won't be had this year and that range is good for picking up a post player this year who could be solid just not a star.

Mclemore will never be the first pick in the draft, the pick by the Cats over a big and will never start over Henderson . He will have problems beating Sessions , Gordon and Taylor out for minutes. The wings in the draft are overrated and should stay in school. Don't take my word . Look at the reports by professional scouts.

you just referred to mcroberts as being "core" and biz and kemba being "liabilities".
Biz will be fine, he's showing more and more flashes lately of what will eventually be. He's already an above average post defender at age 20. He isn't even fully grown yet.
we'll be fine. I prefer muhammad to mclemore, but mclemore is an upper echelon player either way. I like noel and think he's a top 5 prospect in this draft.
I would rather they get noel and curry than either mclemore or muhammad. whoever gets curry in the 2nd round or undrafted wins this draft value wise. we have the hometown advantage. it has to happen. He'll be a big improvement over ben gordon in that same role. equal shooting, smarter play, less turnovers, more effort on defense, less expensive, younger, etc.
mullens actually looked extremely good last night. maybe he's a much better fit off the bench in a low expectations role.

Yeah makes you wonder. Still seems something is off with Mullens or just compared to Mcroberts he looks lethargic.
McRoberts and Pargo wow! Biz and Mullens need to study Mcroberts on rebounding/boxing out.
I wanted that win so bad, past 2 great energy and looking like some toughness is growing with this team. Need more attitude!
