    Getting a grad transfer that can score would be huge ... particularly if Nowell leaves

    Nowell should stay ... but that doesn’t mean people always make the smart decision

    Getting McDaniels puts this team in as a legit Top 10-15 program next year

    Nowell also lost his father a few years ago and his family isn’t quite as well off as others. If he can take care of his mom now, even if it’s not at his peak value, that’s a decision his been wrestling with for a long time.

    The smartest decision is often the wrong decision when life factors comes into play.
    I'm not a Nowell family stalker but I thought I heard somewhere along the line that his mother is a teacher ... could be wrong on that.

    Regardless, I think the point/question that I would put out there would be that he's unlikely to make it rich this year. Leaving without a guaranteed NBA Contract would be a disaster IMO as he has the ability to do that with another 12 months of work and development.

    Trust me, I get the whole life isn't easy and whatnot. I probably understand it way better than most people do. But you have to be willing to put in the work and make the sacrifices to do things the right way if you want to get to where you want to get to in the end.

    This team next year gives me a boner. Naz, Bey, Green, Battle and Hardy as guards, Wright, BPJ, Roberts, Stewart and Sam Timmons up front could be a pretty good looking team that contends for the pac 12 title. If you add in the real possibility of signing McDaniels you get a rare human playing MT's position at the top of the zone and we win the Pac 12 again next year and are a top five seed in the tourney. If Nowell comes back this would be a team that could contend for a final four. We would stop being undersized and scrappy and would be long, lean and scary hard to score on. We would look like Florida State. Fuckin shit, that would be a hell of a team.

    Also I heard that Anthony Lamb averaged 22 a game on 41 3% shooting for Vermont is thinking of grad transferring to UW. 6”6 stretch four/3. He would be huge. Dude can score. Had 34 against Kansas when they were at full strength this year. Get him and Jaden they are game changers.


    Hope Timmins sees the writing on the wall and transfers.


    Lamb’s a back up plan for McDaniels. So I don’t think it happens.
    @StrongArmCobra is a 6”6 black man. Maybe we could sign him?
    I'd be an upgrade over Hameir Wright. I can tell you that much. My 5 years of YMCA pick up game playing > Hamier Wright's 2 years of college ball.
    IMA tryhard > YMCA tryhard s/o @Tequilla

    Anthony Igelisas an incoming walk-on actually trains Anthony Lamb in the off-season. He’s going to contribute a lot in the skill development program outside of practice. He’s a huge get.

    He also trains Jalen Pickett from Sienna who some think might go late round 1.



    Hop is building one of the most impressive programs up and down: four coaches with very specialized assets, using the walk-on program for additional coaching/PD, wonderkids for analytics, elevating the nutrition & medical staffs, it’s beyond impressive. Anyone who thought/still thinks he’s going anywhere isn’t looking beyond the first paragraph in his Wikipedia page.
    Fuck he looks kinda like crisp and same number. I hope he makes us forget about crisp.

    He’s a walk-on that they are going to use in player development as a skills trainer. Already worked with some big names and only 19.

    BTP, what’s our scholarship limit looking like? How many transfers would be needed for McDaniels, Nowell, and Lamb to all be here next year? That team, with Stewart and Green would be final 4 worthy, I’ll give you that.

    Duh even if we don’t get Lamb. I don’t want him taking any minutes from BPJ, Stewart, and Roberts.

    That’d be a squad. Our offense would actually have consistent options 1-5 and our defense would have length for the zone. Don’t get my hopes up for nothing.

    I’ll do it if it means Nowell stays, and Lamb/JMac both come.

    Yeah, it was asked in the comment section of that article. The writer said he didn't get the impression that supporting his mom was a large factor.
