26 Jun 2016 14:15:23
No from Jazz, Hayward worth more than that.

26 Jun 2016 14:26:48
Did Rudy Gobert go back to france?

26 Jun 2016 15:19:45
Why would Utah want okafor? Gobert is considerably better than okafor.

26 Jun 2016 15:28:07
Gobert is considerably better defensively****.

26 Jun 2016 16:07:34
So, SOB, do you think Okafor is better than Gobert?

26 Jun 2016 16:22:17
Ok, redefine that: gobert has CONSIDERABLY more value than okafor and contributes more to winning than okafor ever will. So, he's a considerably better center than okafor.

An elite defensive center beats an elite scoring center (which I'm not sold that okafor is yet) .

26 Jun 2016 19:52:47
Benmiller. Spot. On.

26 Jun 2016 21:03:26
Utah needs scoring on frontline; R. Gobert, good defense, so good he lead the Jazz in block shots during playoffs;

■ Did Jazz make playoffs this season?
Who's scoring points in the paint
for Utah, outside PF-D. Favors? Utah
needs scoring down low in the West
Conference▶ Utah need to focus on
the defensive play from there
Guards and Wings; Put Gobert on
Cleveland, San Antonio, GSW, or a
Indiana team, his presence would be
valuable to a title run;▶With
a Utah team, No! They need pieces,
and I rather have a Center giving
me 17-20ppg/ 8-9rpg than a
starting Center @ 2 blocks, and
averaging 10-11 boards for a non-
playoff team in the West;

▶Utah guards always get
tough pressure up top on offense,
because there's no scoring threat
down low; Favors is the only choice
giving them 15-16ppg, along with
his 4 fouls pg

■ Amazes me how people post up about
how these Rookies and 2-Year
players will NEVER develop their
games over their careers; So if
Okafor defense is suspect now,
NBA teams/ coaches are not capable
of making him, or other young
players any better on Defense; Not
to say they'll be selected All D
Teams during their careers, but how
can anyone think a Rookie or 2nd
year player cannot become a better
outside or mid-range shooter,
better rebounder, or even a better
defensive player; Players 19,20 and
21 years old starting in the NBA
right now, will get much better at
some of their present weaknesses;

▶Take my chances/ future with Okafor
scoring 18-20ppg 10 boards and
the coaching staff
improving his defense @ 20 years
old, than Gobert @ 8-9 points, 10
rebs/ 2 blocks, 5 years older;Gobert
played about 60 games in 2015-2016;
Does that label Gobert injury prone
for the remainder of his career;
NO, Just like Ja Okafor can't be
labeled as a career non-defensive
performing center after one year

▶Guess B. Simmons/ 76ers mid-range
shot will never improve, even
though he and the coaches are
working towards his improvement

■ How many all star teams G. Hayward
been selected too, or how many times
did he make any All-NBA Teams? Is
Hayward an Olympic selection: ▶
Don't Go There thinking Hayward is
a player worthy of giving up the
house for him; Utah know's Hayward
will depart in Free Agency in 2017,
why not get a young scorer down
low to compete in the West:
■ Okafor, D. Favors, Gobert be a nice
frontline rotation; Ask the Utah
guards who they rather throw the
ball down low to, then set up for
the open look: Gobert or Okafor?

■ When your Defense can't put you
into the Playoffs each year, It's
time to add some Offense:

27 Jun 2016 00:35:04
I agree gobert is obviously more valuable, but Utah isn't winning a ton of games.

27 Jun 2016 00:53:01
Utah was decimated by injuries, is really young, and almost made the playoffs. They have a great core to build on. Also, favors is their big that can score.

27 Jun 2016 02:42:22
D. Favors Utah's main scorer; Okay, see how many playoffs the Jazz will make with Favors as their main scoring option up front;

▶Like D. Favor as a 3rd option, but he needs that young or veteran dawg with him in the trenches on offense, which helps the Jazz guards (Utah Guards-No All Star Candidates) who need as much help as possible to create open shots;

▶ Every team is young, but it's about who's willing to make that move to jump ahead of others; Top Free Agents are not running to play for Utah, and the Salary Cap makes it easier for teams to jump ahead of others; So ALMOST making the playoffs this season doesn't make guarantees for making the playoffs next year; This ain't the Eastern Conference!

20 Jun 2016 14:40:10
Dal-Clev-Bos

Dal: #3 Bender+ A Johnson+ JR Smith+ Jerebko
Bos: K Love
Clev: D Nowitzki+ W Matthews.

20 Jun 2016 15:30:22
Possibly most unrealistic trade I've ever seen. Dirk never leaves Dallas.

20 Jun 2016 18:22:12
Dirk Deserve another title.

20 Jun 2016 20:22:25
Unless Dirk wants to go out like Kobe did. This just fair for dirk.
Irving
Shumpert
Matthews
James
Thompson
Dirk sixth man.

20 Jun 2016 22:20:58
You won't get the #3 for Love after the playoff finals he had.
Maybe Jerebko and the 16.

20 Jun 2016 22:54:23
Love was solid and played great role just because he didn't score double figures. Still better then third pick for a play off team.

21 Jun 2016 01:43:00
Jerebko and 16 for Love is ridiculous.

17 Jun 2016 18:32:15
Bulls 76ers

Philly gets Jimmy butler and Taj Gibson
Bulls get lakers pick, philly 2017 pick Dario saric. Kings 2019 first round pick

Bulls-Dallas

Dallas get Mirotic #14
Bulls get Dallas 2017 First round pick Dwight Powell

Tank next year and draft Josh Jackson if they get the chance. Say lakers pick is 4th get a PG. trade Dallas and Philly pick for and the Kings pick they own for top ten pick and draft a center

1- Rose- Fultz
2- Snell- Fultz
3- Jackson- McDermott
4- Portis- Fa
5- Bolden/ Jarrett Allen- felciano.

17 Jun 2016 19:50:47
I don't think this is necessarily too much for butler, but the Sixers can't trade thier own first in 2017 because then they'd also lose the kings swap rights.

20 Jun 2016 16:42:30
Too much for Butler. 4 lottery picks.

28 Jun 2016 04:07:33
All dallas needs
Dwill jlin dleague standout
Matthews lance Stevenson d league
Parsons Crawford Anderson
Dirk mirza teletovic powell
Dwight Howard mejri McGhee.

16 Jun 2016 10:14:40
Wow, what a battle in the finals. Crazy shoots and individual moves.

Not easy to beat such a Team . but y have to try.

There are personal issues at Sac at the Players so ask for McLemore in Exchange for a 1st!

Leonard doens`t fit well at Center in the fast, athletic style of Portland. But maybe he can become a younger Dirk? And Powell could fit well in Portland!

Mavs trade:

Kings:
-2017 1st and Felton to fill the money

Mavs:
-Leonard
-McLemore

Blazers:
-Powell
-2016 2nd

Sign FA 2016: Howard and Terry

D12, Mejri, McGee
Dirk, Leonard, Lee
Parsons, Anderson, Evans
Wes, McLemore, Terry
DWil, Harris, Barea

Sign FA 2017: Rose or Teague

D12, Mejri, McGee
Dirk, Leonard, Lee
Parsons, Anderson, Evans
Wes, McLemore, Harris
Rose, DWil, Barea

Try to beat the best.

16 Jun 2016 13:52:00
Whats amazing is the team next year isn't much improved. The team in 2 years. it will be horrendous. The only non-injury prone starter is dirk, and hell be 47. Great thinking. Sure there will be lovely flow.

12 Jun 2016 23:30:57

13 Jun 2016 18:46:09
Jazz will not trade both Burks and Exum for a 1 year rental of Teage. HOWASH.

14 Jun 2016 01:42:37
Exum isn't going anywhere he is Utah's guy at PG.

12 Jun 2016 11:07:41

12 Jun 2016 21:11:49
This. Team. Sucks.

12 Jun 2016 22:22:38
Thomas Robinson and Ben Macklemore aren't the answer to anything but "name two NBA players that you could see out of the league in two years".

13 Jun 2016 01:30:59
@ben miller: I Always Love that one!

12 Jun 2016 02:14:26

Dirk not coming off the bench. Matthew not a FA. Dal will probably sign either R. Anderson or A. Horford, not both.

11 Jun 2016 06:00:29
If I were a top free agent I wouldn't want to go to Dallas. I guess I'd likely be the #1 guy but I don't see them being a contender and their core is both on the older side and often injured.

10 Jun 2016 04:18:06
Over the cap

10 Jun 2016 04:38:53
Overpay for Milsap and way over cap.

10 Jun 2016 13:21:40
I don't think you can trade swap rights.

10 Jun 2016 14:54:13
Only way you do those deals is if Durant and Whiteside have agreed to come if you do do them. Otherwise it doesn't make sense to basically turn over your entire team and two potential No. 1 overall draft picks.

09 Jun 2016 11:00:47
How do become contender and get younger? Try.

Get younger:

Trade with Kings:
-future 1st pick
Mavs:
-McLemore

Give A. Bennett a 2 year try run! Maybe he can find his moyo again. He can improve at D-League. He is still a talent!

Become competitive:

Conley is a very good player, but the game changer for Mavs?
2017 Rose is FA. He could be a great fit at Dallas! In CHI is Butler, both play similar in paint. At Mavs als the wings are shooters (Wes, Dirk, Parsons), good fit for Rose!

So resign DWil and try to land Rose next Season.

Howard will not stay in Houston, the best grid for him is neither Chicago nor Atlanta. But Dallas. He can domainate the paint and fit shooters around how give him space or scoring. Would work!

D12, Mejri, McGee
Dirk, Lee, Powell, (Bennett)
Parsons, Anderson, Evans
Wes, McLemore, Rookie
DWil, (Rose) / Barea, Harris

Having already starters in two years!

D12, Mejri, McGee
Powell/ Bennett, Dirk
Parsons, Anderson, Rookie
Wes, McLemore, Harris
Rose, DWil, Barea.

09 Jun 2016 11:32:51
I don't think Anthony Bennett ever had his mojo.

09 Jun 2016 14:14:20
I think Anthony Bennett ate his mojo.

09 Jun 2016 19:27:30
You literally get younger by replacing an injury prone older pg with a younger, more injury prone pg. and that's the championship contender? Riiiiight.

10 Jun 2016 02:40:05
Face it Mavs are in a bad place. The Rondo and Jordan situation really hurt. No guarantee they get Howard let alone retain Parsons. Mathews doesn't look like his pre-injury self and certainly not worth all that money. Can't imagine Dirk leaving but he's a free agent and there are a lot more appealing destinations out there. Taking a swing at young underachievers like Bennett and McLemore may be their best option.

08 Jun 2016 16:48:48
Chicago Bulls complete rebuild
Maybe possible but a stretch.

Chicago- Boston

Chicago gets 2016-2018 picks from nets James young
Boston gets Jimmy butler,

Chicago-Philly

Chicago gets 2017 lakers pick,2019 pick (from Sacramento), Kendall Marshall
Philly gets Derrick Rose

Chicago- San Antonio
Sign and trade

Chicago gets 2019 first round pick (protected 1-14)
Spurs get Gasol

Chicago-Minnesota
Sign and trade

Chicago gets Lavine and future second
Minnesota gets Joakim Noah

Chicago-Dallas

Chicago gets 2018 first round draft pick
Dallas gets Mirotic and Taj Gibson

A bit of a reach but each trade is not outrageous. Thoughts?

08 Jun 2016 17:08:44
The Minnesota trade is outrageous.

08 Jun 2016 17:13:53
I just think thibodeau will do a lot for Joakim so maybe the Bulls could pry Lavine away since his defensive may not be up to thibodeaus standards

08 Jun 2016 17:21:11
It would be shabazz then I think. But I heard the wolves will just sign Noah.

08 Jun 2016 17:26:42
too much for rose.

08 Jun 2016 17:31:53
wow that's a lot of moves. but all the trades seem fine.

08 Jun 2016 18:00:04
So. instead of just signing Noah, because you know. he's a free agent. Noah will agree to help the team that is basically forcing him to leave by making his new team, which he wants to go to, give up one of their top prospects and a pick?

And san Antonio the same? Maybe the butler trade, maybe the mavs trade. the rest are just nonsense.

08 Jun 2016 18:06:14
Way too much for rose as said above.

I don't think that the Minnesota trade is "Outrageous" (Lavine is an ok player), but why would Noah want his new team to give up a decent player for him when he could just sign with Minnesota instead?

08 Jun 2016 18:06:48
Why would Minnesota trade a talented young player in LaVine for a guy they can just sign as a free agent? Minnesota has more than enough cap space to do it.

08 Jun 2016 18:51:13
Okay so scratch the Timberwolves for sure. But what if then bulls add snell in the 76ers trade

08 Jun 2016 18:51:44
Okay so scratch the Timberwolves for sure. But what if then bulls add snell in the 76ers trade

08 Jun 2016 19:06:48
Why would Philly trade a almost guaranteed top 5 pick for an now often injured, last year of his contract player? And you want another 1st round pick as well?

Rose just doesn't have anywhere near the value you think he does. I don't think any team would be willing to trade anything meaningful for him right now.

08 Jun 2016 19:07:05
Snell doesn't move the needle for me personally. Like I don't think the sixers senario is close at all.

08 Jun 2016 19:38:54
Rose is as dead value as anyone in the league. Last year of his deal. worst production of career. Huge cap hit. Injury risk and to top it all off he has an attitude problem. Even if he does return to form the guys is bolting the first chance he gets.

Rose isn't even worth a top twenty pick at this point.

09 Jun 2016 17:42:37
Why would the Sixers give up two lottery picks for Rose?

05 Jun 2016 12:15:36
Mavs will try to get younger not only better, so trade for McLemore!

Kings:
-2016 2nd
-2017 1st

Mavs:
-McLemore

Ben does not fit well at Kings. But he is young talent, can shoot the three and attack the ring, is an athlet and able to defend. Would fit well at Mavs!

With McLemore and Anderson, Mavs could use Parsons at PF to go small and play fast.

Sign FA Howard if he opts out and Mavs would had upgraded well!

To Lure for Conley and or Durant would be great but it is too much of a risk.

Mavs have to keep DWil.

Sign C. Lee or Mayo but better trade for McLemore.

Resign the Team that have the good chemistrie.

Have four PG to backup DWil and keep him health and give him rest.
The same with Mejri and McGee to keep Howard health.

D12, Mejri, McGee
Dirk, D. Lee, Powell
Parsons, Anderson, Evans
Wes, McLemore, Harris
DWil, Felton, Barea.

08 Jun 2016 01:52:40
Could work

02 Jun 2016 03:28:39
Cavs - Mavs

Cavs trade: Thompson, Frye, 2018 first round pick

Mavs trade: Parsons, Harris.

Only way Atlanta can sign Durant, Horford, and Bazemore.
Renouncing everybody except Horford. Leaving cap hit at $68 million.
Have to find a trade partner for Teague and Splitter. Probably like Dallas for instance. They need a PG and C. Freeing up another $17 million. While taking back a future 1st round pick. Since Dallas can absorb the contracts with out sending anything back.
With $41 million Atl can max out Durant for 27 million. Sign Bazemore for 10 million. And a back up PG like DJ Augustine for about 2 million.
After those signings then Horford is resigned allowin Hawks to go over cap space owning his full bird rights.
Draft thon maker at 21 and resign Humphries for vet minimum.
It is a pipe dream for a fan but possible.

Schroder, Augustine
Bazemore, Korver, thj
Durant, Sefalosha
Milsap, humpries, muscala
Horford, tavares, maker,

01 Jun 2016 21:02:02
I don't see Durant wanting to play in Atlanta, and Bazemore sadly will get closer to $15M.

30 May 2016 04:53:09
If any free agents want to come to the bucks, this is what they should do.

Trade Monroe and MCW to the Mavs for Wesley Mathews and Devin Harris


Sign Horford, Deng, and Rondo
Resign Plumlee

Draft Davis, Whitehead, and Ellis

Lineup
Rondo, Ennis, Harris
Mathews, Whitehead, Vaughn
Greek Freek, Deng, Ellis
Parker, Henson, O'Bryant
Horford, Davis, Plumlee.

30 May 2016 05:59:27
What happened to Middleton?

30 May 2016 18:19:47
I wouldn't want anything to do with rondo.

31 May 2016 12:54:38
I think don't sign rondo and put Antetokounmpo at point

Starting Five

Antetokounmpo
Wesley Matthews
Middleton
Parker
Horford.

27 May 2016 14:52:26
D`Antoni in Houston confirms the Exit of Howard. Where could he sign? Washington, Chiago maybe? But this Team have Player that penetrade and Play inside.
Dallas! They will have outside shootes and Howard could dominate the paint! Perfect fit!

Mavs should trade:

Kings:
-Evans
Mavs:
-Butler

Sign FA:
-Howard 4y/ 90m starting with 23.5m
-Leuer 1+1y starting 4m
-Mayo 1+1y starting 4m
-Terry (Vetmin)

D12, Mejri, McGee
Dirk, Leuer, Powell
Parsons, Anderson, Butler
Wes, O. J. Mayo, Terry
DWil, Barea, Harris

With raising cap Mayo and/ or Leuer could ask for more money next season if it works out.

That team is so old and worn out, they will break hard. Your most "durable" players are wes. coming off achilles surgery and playing significantly subpar. and parson. constantly a knee injury.

Well played.

I think this is Dallas' best way to stay relevant. Their future isn't looking great as they have little young talent and Dirk their cornerstone is getting up their in age. Unfortunately I think these moves don't make them a contender so these moves just give them more wins and make their pick less valuable further straining their chances at landing young talent to revitalize the franchise.

Celtics two trades that must be made

Trade 1: "TRADING DOWN FOR TEAM NEEDS"

Celtics trade: #3 Brooklyn pick, 2018 Boston 1st rounder, 2019 Memphis 1st, 2020 boston 1st (top 20 protected) Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, #45 Memphis pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder, 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder, 2020 Miami 2nd rounder

Celtics receive: Willie Cauley-Stein, #6 Pelicans pick, and Alonzo Gee (cut)


Sactown trades: Willie Cauley-Stein, #8 Own pick, and Ben Mclemore

Sactown receives #3 Brooklyn pick, 2018 Boston 1st round pick, 2019 Memphis 1st, 2020 boston 1st (top 20 protected) Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder


New Orleans trades: #6 Own pick, Alonzo Gee

New Orleans receives:#8 Sactown pick, Ben Mclemore, #45 Memphis pick, 2020 Miami 2nd rounder

The Why? :

New Orleans: The Pelicans are able to trade down and pick two spots later along with a young SG with upside in Mclemore that can replace Eric Gordon. They can select Jakob Poeltl giving them a true center

Sactown: They would miss out on Kris Dunn staying at #8 but a strong move to move up to #3 gives them a player they want. They do have to give up some value WCS and Mclemore, but the Kings aren't impressed with Mclemore and were rumored to be shopping him at the deadline last year.

Boston: Boston trades down from #3 to #6 and is able to pick up WCS a defensive C which the C's need desperately, and a high potential SF in Brown.

Trade #2: "TRADING UP FOR NEEDS"

Boston trades: #16 Dallas pick and #23 Own pick, and #51 Miami pick

Utah trades:#12

The Why?
Utah: Trades down to pick up extra draft picks to continue to build team.

Boston: The C's move up to draft Denzel Valentine a need at SG.

Final draft pick #31 (3 possibilities) 1.Thon Maker 2.Zhou QI 3.Anti ZIzic Either as draft and stash or Developing big men.

Team after the draft:

PG: Thomas-Smart-Rozier
SG: Bradley-Valentine-Young
SF: Crowder-Brown
PF: Johnson-Jerebko-Mickey
C: WCS-Olynyk (#31 pick: see above)

Free agents to be
SG-Turner
C-Zeller and Sullinger.

I love WCS coming here, thought he was the perfect fit. But we still need scoring and play making with the roster you provided. For me I think there is no way we let Turner go, he is our best play maker. And then we need to get another scorer. As you probably saw in the playoffs, once Atlanta locked up on Thomas we had no one else who could score. That is the first move we need to address this offseason, then we look for a shot blocking center.

24 May 2016 20:21:55
Wait am I reading this right? (I am seriously asking)

Celtics are giving up all these assets for WCS and the possibility of drafting Valentine? Why?

24 May 2016 21:02:43
Valentine is Turner just a better shooter, but a lesser defender.

22 May 2016 18:02:14
The Celtics falling out of the top 3 hurt their chances at a superstar whether by trade or draft. Sitting at 3 the Celtics have quite a few options. In reality everyone knows Simmons and Ingram are going 1 and 2. Due to that fact the Celtics have "the number 1 pick" for the remainder of the draft. I believe in building through the draft and growing a young, yet high potential team. I propose trading down from 3 and trading up from 16 and drafting NBA ready players that can help. this team now and in the future. Here me out.

Trade 1: "TRADING DOWN FOR TEAM NEEDS"

Celtics trade: #3 Brooklyn pick, 2018 Boston 1st rounder, Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, #45 Memphis pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder, 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder, 2020 Miami 2nd rounder

Celtics receive: Willie Cauley-Stein, #6 Pelicans pick, and Alonzo Gee (cut)


Sactown trades: Willie Cauley-Stein, #8 Own pick, and Ben Mclemore

Sactown receives #3 Brooklyn pick, 2018 Boston 1st round pick, Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder


New Orleans trades: #6 Own pick, Alonzo Gee

New Orleans receives:#8 Sactown pick, Ben Mclemore, #45 Memphis pick, 2020 Miami 2nd rounder

The Why? :

New Orleans: The Pelicans are able to trade down and give up a backup SF in Gee and receive a pick two spots later along with a young SG with upside in Mclemore that can replace Eric Gordon, along with extra draft selections. They can select Jakob Poeltl giving them a true center allowing Davis to play PF. They get great value by trading down just two spots.

Sactown: They would miss out on Kris Dunn staying at #8 but a strong move to move up to #3 gives them a player they want. They do have to give up some value WCS and Mclemore, but the Kings aren't impressed with Mclemore and were rumored to be shopping him at the deadline last year. WCS is the only real value i see them pausing on before this trade. Although after Danny sweetens the pot by adding the 2018 Boston 1st rounder, Kings can't say no. They also pick up Hunter a SG project along with more draft selections. Overall they get #3 and good value in return.

Boston: Boston trades down from #3 to #6 and is able to pick up WCS a defensive C which the C's need desperately. They are able to cash in some of the numerous 2nd rounders they have. Giving up the 2018 1st sounds like a lot to give up but in two years i see the Celtics as a contender and that pick at worst will be in the 22-30 range. With the #6 pick the Celtics draft Jaylen Brown. He is perfect for our SF position behind Crowder and he has All Star potential . I project him as a taller more athletic Marcus Smart. I like to imagine Smart, Bradley, Brown, Crowder, WCS, all on the court at the same time, granted we wouldn't score but neither would the opposing team. Overall the C's get a need at both SF and the rim protecting Center they always needed without giving up the higher priced assets.


Trade #2: "TRADING UP FOR NEEDS"

Boston trades: #16 Dallas pick and #23 Own pick, and #51 Miami pick

Boson receives: #12


Utah trades:#12

Utah receives:#16 Dallas pick, #23 Own pick, and # 51 Miami pick

The Why? :

Utah: Trades down to pick up extra draft picks to continue to build team.

Boston: The C's move up to draft Denzel Valentine a need at SG. He plays almost identical to Evan Turner with the main trade off of Valentine being a better shooter but a worse defender. The Celtics option for a younger, cheaper, better shooting option, as they can now let Evan Turner go in free agency and not have to pay upwards of 10 million a year. The one variant in all of this is that Valentine could be available at #16. I just can't see that happening but it is a possibility.


Final draft pick #31 (3 possibilities) 1.Thon Maker 2.Zhou QI 3.Anti ZIzic Either as draft and stash or Developing big men.

Team after the draft:

PG: Thomas-Smart-Rozier
SG: Bradley-Valentine-Young
SF: Crowder-Brown
PF: Johnson-Jerebko-Mickey
C: WCS-Olynyk (#31 pick: see above)

Free agents to be
SG-Turner
C's Zeller and Sullinger

Celtics are in prime position to attack free agency. With no Glaring needs (maybe PF) and still with numerous assets the Celtics can do whatever Danny wants. This team is better than last year and has amazing potential for this year and definitely the future. This is the best smartest option for the Celtics this upcoming draft. Still armed with all the future Nets picks the Celtics can stay the course and develop into a powerhouse or flip any of these prospects and make a power move.

Sorry I know it's long.

23 May 2016 00:42:23
You don't really expect people to read that novel right?

23 May 2016 01:32:23
Kings say no. WCS is worth more or equal to three this year IMHO. Two would be different. Sac 8 pick is worth more than 2018 Boston 1st round pick, Rj Hunter, #35 Minny pick, 2017 Cleveland 2nd rounder 2019 Detroit 2nd rounder. McLemore is better than nothing. Sorry pass.

23 May 2016 14:47:49
Pels would pounce at that deal.
