    The mic being held by the person next to him, makes Randy look like he's got a clowns nose. Seems appropriate.

    I don't hate the move for Beilein. The Cavs only have one legitimately bad contract on the books after next season (they'll still owe Kevin love 91 million over three years after next season) and if they land a top two pick tomorrow night in the lottery they can build around Collin Sexton and Zion or they can take Ja Morant and move on from Sexton. They owe Atlanta their 2019 or 2020 first round pick if it falls outside the top ten, so they should have their top picks for the foreseeable future. The current roster is mostly garbage but at least they'll have some flexibility to build from the ground up.

    Re Signing Love was incredibly dumb but moving on from last years first pick already may be as dumb with new coach that may be helpful.

    Not unprecedented, though. The Mavs moved on from Dennis Smith Jr after less than two seasons because it was evident he was a poor fit alongside Doncic. Kris Dunn didn't make it past his rookie contract in Minnesota.

    It sucks to give up on a draft pick early, but it also sucks to throw good money after bad or blow a chance at a potential superstar because you already have an incumbent PG who might be pretty good eventually.

    Truth there, but Sexton has had 3 coaches last 3 years as well. If they are number 2 then yes I'd say hes gone you have to take Morant. Its just a tough pill to swallow tossing away a year at a time like the Cardinals just did

    Oh yeah, I'm not saying cut bait on Sexton and draft another guard, any guard. I'm just saying that if they land the second pick they can't afford to pass on Morant just because Sexton is there, and keeping both doesn't make a whole lot of sense considering their playing style.

    Well that is assuming that Morant is Gilbert's preference, the Cav's GM may prefer RJ or another prospect at 2 over Ja especially with the uptick in Sexton had at the end of the year. I know Morant is the conscientious #2 on most boards but like we saw last year with Doncic teams don't always follow the conscientious ranks. If they got #2 they could trade Morant for a ransom like ATL did, possibly to Phoenix if they fall to 3 or 4 they are said to covet him.
    Tomorrow's lottery should be pretty fun with a couple of teams getting their dreams realized and a lot getting their's crushed.

    Don't you think the best coach in the state of Iowa would get his name mentioned so Barta could lock him up for another 10 years at $4 million a year.:)

    Takes a lot of buy out money to get Beard. Texas walked couldn't afford to pay two buyouts. With their coach walking they would only need to buyout the TT end of it.
