    Expiring contract will have value.

    Honestly was surprised he is still in the league.


    Interesting he went from the most underpaid player to the most overpaid player very quickly.

    This kind of just sums up Orlando over the past decade give or take. Guys who just don't fit together.

    Gordon is hard because it's just hard to see any value for him, he's a solid player, he's kind of ok at everything but not good at anything, especially modern game skills.

    Not sure who would give anything that's equal or better than him in a trade either, so we're stuck with him. Same as Vucevic and Bamba, we should trade one but neither is really going to return fair value because while I love Bamba's potential that's all he's got and we're burying him pretty deep which is the fastest way to devalue an asset and Vucevic just came 20 years too late.

    I think you gotta invent value in a way. With Gordon trade him to a contender and rack up a few late first round draft picks and hope you hit one

    Bumble is worth like 1.8 billion dollars so I can see how they offered more money then others. Still surely Clippers have some shame and dont want to embarass the shit out of themselves like that though?

    Yeah that's what I mean. Especially with their increased popularity, surely they had a more tasteful offer to put on their jersey.

    You forget that Bumble is a super SJW friendly company that is ultra feminist oriented so it's more about points scoring on that front than what their actual product is and from the Clippers' perspective it's purely about the dollars as long as they can tick the other boxes which having a company like Bumble absolutely does.

    In a place like LA or SF Bumble is pretty much the perfect sponsor.

    Just enjoying the ride.


    I do agree it is a pretty huge usage rate but who else would you give it to on that team?

    It's hard to invent the value on a guy like him though. He's the epitome of the "jack of all trades, master of none" guy and on top of that he's a total tweener positonally as well.

    Like he's probably best at PF but he doesn't defend or rebound well enough for the position which pushes him to SF where he doesn't shoot nearly well enough.

    Ultimately that's the problem, he's an average defender, average rebounder, average to even poor shooter, average ball handler and passer. He does everything at an utterly average level.

    If someone was offering a first, I think we should do that trade without hesitation but it's just hard to see who would offer that for him.

    Portland are maybe one team, they need front court help in the worst way (like willing to get cancer for it level way). Nuggets maybe in a way he could fit in there. Lakers I guess he could be an interesting fit and I guess Utah also. Miami or the Pacers maybe in the East could make some sense but I can't see any of those teams really going out of their way to do it and really is a pick in the 20s, which most of those teams are likely to be offering, really worth it, I mean he's not great or anything but he's better than 99% of 20+ draft picks.

    That's really the hard part for the Magic, I hate to say it but we've mired ourselves in absolute mediocrity and realistically Fultz is probably the only way out right now which, while I'm hopeful, seems a bit of a longshot still. I like the look of Bamba and Isaac is a nice modern 4 who can absolutely be the 3rd or 4th type on a very strong team. Our problem is that Bamba doesn't look like he'll ever be an offensive stud, he's got some skills that he can be good but not dominant which again gets back to Fultz as the only guy. Vucevic is basically good enough to remain mediocre and not good enough to go beyond that. He's the one to trade though, ultimately a season of losing hard would be good for us, especially if an elite wing prospect can pop up in the draft and Vucevic is the one we might be able to get a pick in the teens for, he can kind of fit on any team at least and add something.

    Doncic's improvement this year is actually insane. Like he's basically hit what his absolute peak seemed likely to be only now you have to wonder can he be even better right?

    He's crazy good.

    Bet on New Orleans to beat Portland at 2.20. With Lillard out and Ingram in they are now 1.62

    My pants are even happier
