Solves are issues with shooting. But I'm not sure I like this move. I love Markakken but Nance + is steep.

#CrystalBasketball was higher on Markkanen last season than I thought.

92. Serge Ibaka, Los Angeles Clippers: 5.81
91. Devonte’ Graham, Charlotte Hornets: 5.81
90. Joe Harris, Brooklyn Nets: 5.88
89. Lauri Markkanen, Chicago Bulls: 5.88
T86. Davis Bertans, Washington Wizards: 5.94
T86. Evan Fournier, Orlando Magic/Boston Celtics: 5.94



RAPTOR thinks he's pretty MEH, though the only players on our team ranked higher in WAR last season were Allen, Garland & Nance (bye, sweet prince).

Signing Mobley's backup for 4 years. What the stupid shit is that? Pure fucking incompetence.

Maybe I am in the minority but I think a 3 man rotation of Mobely / Lauri / Allen is pretty damn good. Youth and interchangeability.

Lauri can play with either player and there are plenty of minutes to go around at the 4 and 5.

The contract is reasonable relative to his age and (IMO), how much better I think he can get.

I actually like this deal from the standpoint that Markkanen is a good offensive player and fits our timeline better than Nance being just 24 years old.

Kind of a weird fit given our roster, though. Markkanen, Mobley and Allen are all starters in this league. But I'm not sure how you start them together.
