    If he can, then he's a solid 3-and-D guy. But he was grappling with some major stage fright last season. Did not want the ball in his hands.
    Look, we're doing sustainability.

    There’s been some chatter about extending Turner again. The fit with Jackson, who can switch out, is intriguing and I was in the minority of those who liked Turner’s fit with Sabonis.

    That said, I would count on either Turner, Theis or Goga to be moved before the season starts. The obvious questions of where and for whom.

    If so, that alone would justify the trade, regardless of the result of the included first rounder. We have to remember that Nesmith was projected to go higher in that draft but fell.

    He went #14, right? Hopefully, he gets things going in Indy and becomes a "trade" legend.

    That’d be great. Heck, lots of people were convinced the Paul George trade wouldn’t work out, at least the National press. And you’re right, Nesmith went 14, about where he was projected.

    I liked Nesmith in college and thought he had a lot of potential to be a good pro. Hopefully a change of organizations and opportunity for more minutes will help him reach his potential. Maybe he learned a few defensive skills in Boston that can give him an edge in Indy.

    Thomas Bryant signs with LA.

    He's a solid offensive performer with some real upside in that area, but he's a sieve defensively. They may be able to hide him a bit if AD and LeBron are engaged, but that's a rarity.

    More interestingly is what this might do to the lineup. Right now, they've got about five wings, none of them particularly good. THT needs clock-- but he has to earn it. His 2022 was really, really bad. Avery Bradley is 112 and does remarkably little. Austin Reaves is a shooter who wasn't particularly effective. Lonnie Walker has been a walking disappointment since being drafted. Mac McClung is an MSU alum-- and that's the best thing you can really say about him.

    Starting only one of those guys has ramifications though. LeBron would then have to take on more responsibilities as a wing than as a ball-handling big. That's a big ask of an old guy, particularly one who plays as many minutes as the King does. Moving LeBron to SF and AD to PF (with Bryant as center) should make the entire lineup better, but that'd give a 39-year-old LeBron more defensive responsibility rather than less. Too, it requires AD to chase PF instead of playing center. And it's not like they're adding Wilt in the middle. Bryant has issues protecting the rim-- they'll need solid defense all-around if they want to get back in the playoffs.

    The answer might be Kendrick Nunn. Pairing him with Westbrook-- and allowing him to take the toughtest defensive assignment-- makes all sorts of sense. He's also a shooter who can take advantage of the gravity of the gravity Westbrook/ AD/ LeBron put on opposing defenses. If they go with one wing, IMO, it should be Nunn paired with Westbrook.

    He looked really good. Just watched highlights, but he looked like way more of a shot creator than when watching him at Gonzaga. If he can do that against NBA defenses he’s going to be special.
