Does anyone remember last year when it was Bojan we wanted with the ball down the stretch? Not saying that will be the case, and not saying Ingles shouldn't close sometimes, but we really, really need that back.

Yep.
Last year I would have picked him above anyone on the team to take the last shot

Don’t think it makes sense. Bogey is fringe #1 scorer material and an above average #2 scorer who is deadly from 3. Those qualities are vital to who we’ve become as an offense. No one brings anything close to what he does outside of obviously Mitchell and maybe Clarkson who has to be a bench guy.

Knowing that and how important Ingles is so far as chemistry and all, I see Royce as really the only guy who can be traded as his contract is something that could net something decent back and a team might be interested in him based on his age and 3 and d qualities. Why would we trade him if he has said qualities? Because we might be able to snag someone who is a slightly better defender, more proven, tougher (we could really use this), and a better leader which would come in handy come playoffs as Mike is really the only guy we have like that now.

No idea who would fulfill those requirements but anyone within 125% of Royce’s salary (or Royce and filler) is the dream. So maybe anyone <11.5M or so.

These guys don’t grow on trees.
