JJJ had a DNP tonight in the Erie Bay Hawks only preseason game , a 141-102. Looks like he may be getting cut. Although the rest of the team sucked so bad he might actually be an improvement lol.

Pistons elect to not pick up Henry’s contract for next year. His lack of shooting skills hurt his cause. Hope they at least give Henry some junk time minutes this year to showcase himself.

At this point, the main thing HE has going for him is his age.  Since he has no hope of playing more than garbage time minutes with the Pistons, he should happily head to Grand Rapids and pray that his shots start falling.  If he can shoot the three at 35% or above in the G-league, someone might pick him up in free agency.  If not, head to Europe and live the sweet Diener life.

I have watched him in a half dozen G-league games in Grand Rapids.   The G-league forwards are quicker and more physical than he is.   And even at an average of 6'7, their quickness and physicality can disrupt his shot at the G-league level.   Plus, when he plays in GR, he is a conscience free gunner who still does the whole 'get a defensive rebound, dribble it down court, back into the mid post, then shoot a turnaround jumper with no other teammate touching the ball' thing that he does.

I said similar in the NBA thread on the Superbar.

Henry has to make 3s to play in today's NBA. He still has a chance to improve. Or maybe not.

He has solid form, he just can't hit them. Almost convinced he needs glasses or something.

DJO with a solid 27 point outing in his first game for the Iowa Wolves. Really enjoy watching him back in the US.

Henry needs minutes.    Assigned to the G-League drive.    I will see him tonight.    Kid's school's band is playing the national anthem.

Looking forward to your report.  Should be fun for the family too.

Possible Henry v Jameel McKay match-up tonight.  Spending a lot of time matched against CJ Fair.

Through one half, Henry...
Looks bigger.  Shoulders are broader, more definition to his arms.
Will still get a rebound and push it.  The other bigs will outlet to him while the guards sprint up the wings.
Can't defend.
Had his pocket picked by Tyler Ulis.
When shooting an open 3 has great form and touch.
Will still force a turnaround 3.  Or 4.
https://www.mlive.com/drive/2018/11/ellenson_leads_drive_to_first.html

Ended up with 29-15.    Matched up with CJ Fair, Kaiser Gates, and Tre'Darius McCallum most of the night.    All in the 6-7-6'8 range.
Played a really solid game for the most part, offensively.

It is interesting that the French, Italian and Spanish press pick up the news about Dwight Buycks going to China but nothing here in the US.

Jimmy Butler (general soreness) will play on Wednesday against the Lakers.


Thank you JB for gracing us with your brilliance. I know "general soreness" can be very rough. Especially after having to play 8 games already this season.

Ooops.... game is a national broadcast. Make it about you, big guy.

Good Chinese PR for Dwight Buycks

Is in China now. Apparently he is some kind of alternate foreigner on the roster.

I don't get this for the 76ers. The thing they need most is more outside shooting, and Covington and Saric shoot the second and third most threes on the team (Covington 39% this year and Saric 30% but he's a young guy who shot 39% last year).  Simmons, Butler and Embiid will be fun to watch on defense, but the chemistry risk of adding JFB to that locker room + worsening their offensive achilles heel outweigh the upside for me.

JFB will be fine in the locker room if they play hard. I know what the Wolves are trying to do but it won’t work.

Yup. As a Bucks fan, I like this. The 76ers are what the Bucks were the past 4 years. Just put as many athletic slashers as you can together and forget that shooting is what wins in basketball.

Love that the 76ers traded away 2 of their 3 competent shooters for a guy they’ll have for 5 months.

I've outed myself as a non-fan of JFB's recent behavior, but I don't think the bolded is a given even if you're a JFB fan. He and Embiid are two very wound up alpha dog type dudes who are both young and still growing into that role. It wouldn't be a huge surprise if they didn't mesh, and if they don't mesh, they aren't going to just quietly disagree.

The Sixers and Butler, 29, have every intention on formalizing a long-term agreement this summer, sources said, but nothing is allowed to be negotiated or agreed upon now. The Sixers will weigh Butler's physical condition and how he fits with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, but they didn't give up such significant assets believing that this would be a rental situation.

AHAHAHAHA. Can someone photoshop Elton Brand's face onto Charlie Brown trying to kick the football?
