Easy stretch coming up. Need to make that Dre trade now and start the tank before we rattle off a .500 record against the bottom of the league and give Gores hope or ruin our chances at a good pick.

A shame we had no way of knowing this would happen when we traded for him.

Predictable, but it's a good season for it, especially if they move Dre asap. Can't ask for a better opportunity to tank and kickstart the rebuild than this.

Or just keep giving the ball to Drummond at the top of the circle and let him run the offense. That should aid the tank nicely.

Personally, I don't care too much about the draft pick as it'll likely be in the inconsequential 7-10 range. It's all about shipping Drummond out to avoid the big overpay and developing the youngsters. Blake getting season ending surgery would be a blessing in disguise so Sekou can continue to play a big role. It's been refreshing watching this team the last few games with the young guys doing good things and moving the ball around as opposed to the bogged down Blake/Reggie offense of the last few years.

They're in the 7th spot right now with a 32% chance at the top 4. If Blake misses the season and Dre is traded, they could very easily land a much higher pick than the 7-10 range.

It depends on when/if Drummond is dealt. This is an extremely easy stretch coming up so I can see them racking up some wins. ****, they might wind up keeping him if they get back in the turtle race.

Little early to be watching the scoreboard.  But Washington is about to get a W over Boston.

Wood's contract becomes fully guaranteed on Jan. 7th.  He is a free agent at the end of the year, which could be an issue depending on how big of a deal he gets and how much cap space Detroit has.

Luka with 38-11-10 tonight.

 

The Bulls bench was smart enough to be chirping at him all night.  So Luka came down, abused Kris Dunn, made some step back threes, and was yelling at the Bulls bench all 3rd and 4th quarter.

The Bulls are not only bad, they're stupid.

Kris Dunn has stepped up to the challenge against many top-level scorers this season, but he got himself in foul trouble early and was saddled with those issues all game. He also contributed to a shaky Bulls start offensively by badly missing three wide-open treys. Dunn did pickpocket Doncic once late in the fourth quarter, but for some reason he decided to start talking trash down 10 points. The Mavs promptly scored eight points on the next three possessions to put the nail in the coffin.

I love it.  Bad AND stupid, the Bulls in three words.

So that could mean 4 weeks of Drummond trade speculation.  That should be fun.
