That would be huge sort of a head scratcher for me. DDJ is here for another year, Saunders has 3 years left. MAW two, Mason 3 not that he can't be recruited over.

I mean it would be a huge get, just weird to smash these guys all in this year. Gotta do it and not worry about people's feelings, but a few peoples minutes are going doooown if he comes.

Agree about Garcia. He would allow Ody to stick to the 5 and free JD up to play some 3.

For Murray, the only thing I can think of is he played at a prep school in New Hampshire. Wes and MAW also played prep there, so maybe some kind of connection. That's quite a stretch though, probably means nothing. I think he would be a go to scorer for us on the wing though.

Looks like we are in talks with Mississippi State senior Abdul Ado has entered the transfer portal. Put up 6 ppg, and 7 rebounds this past season... basically a one year rental with Korval

Interesting. If we bring in Ado I think Koval's role is drastically reduced. Ado would start for sure, and I think Ody would get the bulk of backup minutes at the 5. We would have some serious frontcourt depth for one year, with 3-4 natural centers.

Jeff Goodman thinks we will land Ado.

This would allow us to start sliding players down. Davenport can play a lot more 3 now with Ody playing more 4. Perhaps Newman can play some 2 as well as 3.

Still hoping one more spot opens up for a perimeter scorer

Ado is exclusively an interior scorer, as is Ody. Offense could really struggle with both on the floor together.

Yah I see that. Can go Ado with Davenport and Koval with Ody
