Um, that's a lot of excitement for a guy who averaged like 8 and 5 last year. He'll add a bit of bench depth.

Just means they're about to trade one of Adams or Kanter.

Don't think either Adams or Kanter's going, likely Lauvergne's the third big. More likely they'll trade McGary for any help at the 3.

Bit late to that trade considering your excitement.

It wouldn't surprise me to see Kanter go, although there's also rumours of an Adams/Olidipo for Butler trade (which I'd highly doubt).

There's talk the Clips will take Kanter in a straight swap for Griffin, just so they get something for him and not lose him for nothing in free agency.
But it's all speculation.

Does this thread title deserve an exclamation point, let alone 2?

There will be enough minutes for adams, kanter and lauvergne, you need a solid 4 man rotation to be a contender. With lauvergne still young and developing it's unlikely he will dislodge the starters at this point.
