You do realize that the Mid-Level exceptuon to the salary cap is over $5 mil? Meaning that vets like Rondo, Chandler, and Carroll will be looking for at least that amount from playoff teams like Philly, Portland, Houston, etc.


2.) 16 Feb 2019 21:22:40
So Horford will opt out of $30 million next year to sign 2 year $31 million one year guarantee. So he will leave Boston to play in LA for half the pay. Solid plan.


3.) 16 Feb 2019 23:43:02
David West did something similar.


4.) 17 Feb 2019 04:59:06
11- david west left a bad team for a contender. Not a contender for a worse team.


5.) 17 Feb 2019 05:28:48
Boston are pretenders. Bucks And raptors are contenders. warriors nuggets thunder are contenders.


6.) 17 Feb 2019 07:37:16
Warriors are champions. Other 29 teams are pretenders.


7.) 17 Feb 2019 13:52:05
Nick's Warrior pimp hand be strong.


8.) 17 Feb 2019 14:03:58
Indy was a challenger :-)


9.) 17 Feb 2019 17:47:59
Actually west was worse because the money he gave up didn't get back within the next year. If horford did that he make a million extra. But what west did it took him a few years to make up.


10.) 18 Feb 2019 01:45:45
Not really. Instead of 1 year $30 million it becomes 2 year $31million. He plays year 2 for $1 million. If he doesn't think he could get a contract from any other team in 2020 then its good move. But the MLE will probably be over $6 million to go to contender. He could get even more if he went to a worse team.


 

 

03 Feb 2019 17:37:20
The trade that makes the most sense for both the Lakers and Pelicans:


Lakers get Anthony Davis, Darius Miller, and Tim Frazier

Pelicans get Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Ivica Zubac, 2019 1st rd pick (top 3 protected) and 2021 1st rd pick (top 7 protected)

NBA

1.) 03 Feb 2019 18:12:17
Kuzma and Ingram for starters.

KCP will probably veto the move to New Orleans.


2.) 03 Feb 2019 19:16:46
Ball, Ingram, Kuzma, Hart, plus 2 1sts 2019, 2021 would be minimum NO would consider.


3.) 03 Feb 2019 21:00:56
If I were pelicans I’d ask for Kuzma also. Lakers are desperate, they are going to give away everything for AD then after one good year watch Lebron get old.


4.) 03 Feb 2019 23:21:39
Actually, I might want to wait the Celtics out. If the Kings pick ends up being #1, the Celtics have a fair chance of only having their and Philly's picks in 2019. The Lakers pick would actually be better.


5.) 04 Feb 2019 01:17:32
These young Lakers suck compared to Cs Players. Ball is a head case w a head case Dd. Kuzma and Ingram vs Tatum and Brown. Plus Pels front office pretty pissed about the tampering. Lakers better reach a lot deeper.


 

 

03 Feb 2019 14:34:49
Hornets-Grizzlies-Bulls


•Hornets get Marc Gasol, Cristiano Felicio, and Ivan Rabb


•Grizzlies get Jabari Parker, Cody Zeller, Bismack Biyombo, Bobby Portis, the right to swap 2019 1st rd picks (via Hornets), and OKC’s 2019 2nd rd pick (via Hornets)

•Bulls get Chandler Parsons, Jamychal Green, Frank Kaminsky, and Hornets’ 2020 1st rd pick (lottery protected)

NBA

 

 

02 Feb 2019 19:33:05
Rockets-Grizzlies


Rockets get Jamychal Green, Garrett Temple, and Omri Casspi

Grizzlies get Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss, and 2019 1st rd pick (lottery protected)

NBA

 

 

02 Feb 2019 06:44:44
Hornets-Grizzlies-Bulls


•Hornets get Marc Gasol, Chandler Parsons, Jamychal Green, and Ivan Rabb
-Lineup:
Pg. Walker, Parker, Graham
Sg. Lamb, Monk, Bacon
Sf. MKG, Bridges, Parsons
Pf. Williams, Green, Rabb
C. Gasol, Hernangomez

•Grizzlies get Jabari Parker, Cody Zeller, Bismack Biyombo, Frank Kaminsky, and a 2019 2nd rd pick (via Hornets) and their own 2nd rd pick returned in 2020 (via Bulls)

•Bulls get Nic Batum and Hornets’ 2019 1st rd pick (top 10 protected)

NBA

1.) 02 Feb 2019 14:13:20
So Charlotte uses their 1st rounder to unload Batum's contract but then pick up Chandler's contract? doesn't seem smart to me.

That west first round would be fun.

GS vs SA - 5 games, but the Spurs are a tough out no matter what.
Denver vs LA - Inexperienced Denver tries to bounce Lebron.
OKC vs Portland - The old NW rivalry. Westbrook vs Lillard is always fun.
Houston vs Utah - Def vs Offense. Can Utah knock off a big name in the first round two years in a row?

Great storylines, great matchups.


2.) 22 Feb 2019 23:44:14
If the Spurs end up at number 7, they have a very good chance of knocking out the Nuggets and their 2nd round opponent.

NBA

1.) 06 Jan 2019 11:47:14
Thompson hasn’t been close to an all star this year.


2.) 06 Jan 2019 12:43:25
No centers anymore so AD would start.


3.) 06 Jan 2019 14:44:56
West
Steph
Harden
Durant
James
Ad

East
Irving
Butler
Leonard
Greek freak
Embiid.


4.) 06 Jan 2019 15:35:12
Jokic has been better this season than AD.


5.) 06 Jan 2019 16:21:40
Jokic
AD
Durant
Harden
Curry.


6.) 06 Jan 2019 17:19:11
Scratch Curry, replace with LBJ, Jokic is the PG, along with LBJ.

Jokic
AD
Durant
Harden
LBJ.

NBA player rankings (NOT MVP or overall career rankings)

1. LeBron

5. Kawhi
6. AD
7. Harden
8. Paul George
9. Embiid
10. Westbrook
11. Kyrie

NBA

1 Curry
2 Lebron
3 Giannis
4 KD
5 Kawhi
6 AD
7 Harden
8 Lillard
9 Jokic

After 7 it gets very difficult, there's about 10 guys that could go anywhere in there.


2.) 31 Dec 2018 22:28:12
Whats going on with LBJ doing media hyping feel-good stories about him being better than Michael Jordan because he won a title in CLE? Jordan never referred to himself as the best to play the game. I've lost mucho respecto for LBJ. That was the worst, rotten, crusty filmed fake cheesy thing I think I've seen an elite athlete do. Pathetic. Be good in your own generation and let people who know, decide. Not a bunch of drama-crazed Oprah types or whoever tunes into that type of garbage media target audience dog poo.


3.) 31 Dec 2018 23:47:09
Jokic by numbers and missing starters with best record needs to be top 3.


4.) 01 Jan 2019 02:09:16
Btec it’s not that deep.


5.) 01 Jan 2019 02:20:12
What it’s
Lebron
KD
AD
Curry
Harden and rest is debatable.


6.) 01 Jan 2019 12:47:50
Rad. The rest is debatable but Giannis and Kawhi in the top 5 isn’t? Laughable.

Btec. Totally agree.


7.) 01 Jan 2019 15:37:21
Jokic is a top 3 MVP candidate this year, but if you said I could have someone to build a team around, he’s not one of the first 8 names that come to my mind.


8.) 01 Jan 2019 15:45:05
Thanks. It insulted what little intelligence I have left, made me feel old and ask: " what is the world coming to that someone would believe this tripe". Gets me going a little.


9.) 01 Jan 2019 17:17:19
Notdrainer who would you kick out of my top 5 for Giannis and Kawhi
Lebron
KD
AD
Curry
Harden.


10.) 01 Jan 2019 17:29:50
Curry and AD. LBJ doesn't play defense so putting he and Curry together is a liability in my opinion. Giannis is way more durable, athletic, freakish than Davis. Equal or better defender, has better ball handling skills and passing ability. I'm partial to big, long, tall, athletic, line-ups.


11.) 02 Jan 2019 12:36:40
Bmiller- why not? Young scores, rebounds and passes. Put him with scorers and he is a point/ center. His game is versatile. I see kd, lebron ( maybe) and Kawhi ahead of him. The question was efficient not building block.


12.) 02 Jan 2019 16:15:25
He and Embid are the 2 best big men in the league. If Jokic improves defensively he could challenge Embid for the crown, but I have Embid slightly ahead of Jokic.


13.) 03 Jan 2019 14:24:08
I think AD has a strong argument there as well.

Jokic needs to prove it longer than 1/ 3 of a season that he's a legit elite player before he joins that top 7 group. Even then, I think he's closer to Lillard and Paul George than the top 7. Not a knock on him, the top 7 are all Hall of Famers. Being in a group with Lillard, Westbrook, George, Kyrie, and Embiid isn't a bad group to be in.

I saw the question as building block. Player ranking to me is "What individual player do you want right now for the rest of the year, ignoring contracts, age, history, specific teammates, etc".

LA Lakers Offseason Moves


-Trade Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Ivica Zubac, 2019 1st rd pick, and 2021 1st rd pick (lottery protected) for Anthony Davis and a future 2nd rd pick
(Lakers then have $22m in cap space)

-Sign Bojan Bogdanovic 2yr 20m
-Re-Sign Rajon Rondo 1yr 4m
-Re-Sign Lance Stephenson 1yr 5m
-Sign Demarre Carroll 1yr 3m
-Re-Sign JaVale McGee 1yr 4.6m (room exception)
-Re-Sign Tyson Chandler 1yr minimum
-Sign Zach Randolph 1yr minimum
-Sign Cam Payne 1yr minimum


Lineup:
Pg. Ball, Rondo, Payne
Sg. Hart, Stephenson, Bonga
Sf. LeBron, Bogdanovic, Mykhailiuk
Pf. Davis, Carroll, Randolph
C. McGee, Chandler, Wagner.

NBA

1.) 28 Dec 2018 19:28:30
Okay, I got an even better knee slapper!

Lillard, McCollum, Nurkic
4
Davis, Holiday, Mirotic, 1st.


2.) 28 Dec 2018 20:52:13
How is that a bad trade?


3.) 28 Dec 2018 22:49:40
Davis would never stay in Portland and Mirotic expires, so he is gone too after the season. McCollum and Lillard are on long term multiple year contracts and in 1 season the Blazers have a mid pick and possibly Holiday left maybe for their 2 stars? That sounds pretty awful to me as a Portland Fan. I wouldn't support that happening to any team placed where the blazers are currently.


4.) 28 Dec 2018 23:06:08
Blazers could be the No.2 team in the west in 2 weeks with how the strength of schedule has mattered and how competitive the west is. The east is a disgrace and the top 16 teams need to be in the playoffs if multiple losing teams are going to be allowed into the post season in the east this year. When is this too much?


5.) 28 Dec 2018 23:15:50
I meant how is the trade I posted bad?


6.) 28 Dec 2018 23:46:08
You have the Lakers getting a 2nd from the Pels and Davis too, and giving up laker-homer value for Davis. Seriously, you think this is competitive or fair NBA value for the service of a 25 year-old all-star Davis? If Magic and Pelinka officially made that their final offer, Davis is all but guaranteed a Celtic this summer.


7.) 28 Dec 2018 23:51:45
Ingram and kuz aren't goid. Tye 2 pucks will be late first rounders. Lakers package is sad compared to celtics.


8.) 29 Dec 2018 15:40:37
Clippers Boston and Memphis plus the kings pick none will be top ten so not really good and by the time Boston can trade for davis those picks will be used. Kuzma is playing better then mostly all young players right know on rookie contracts. Ingram and brown are both equal now. I give edge too Ingram though because he been hurt. You don't get fair or even equal when trading a player because your afraid to lose him for nothing. Like name a team that got better after trading there superstar. Boston does have the better pieces but there so good I wouldn't trade them.


9.) 29 Dec 2018 18:57:26
I'd just love to hear a conversation where they're talking a Davis trade and the Lakers demand a 2nd to get it done. If you're the Pelicans, you know 100 percent that the Lakers aren't walking away from a Davis trade over a 2nd.


10.) 29 Dec 2018 19:37:34
Lol Lakers will be like keep the second and extend hands to shake.


11.) 29 Dec 2018 19:43:16
9955, I wish I could lay out the value difference in a straight forward fashion for the future staggered year picks the Lakers can offer V. S. Possibly 4 - '19 1sts the Celts can offer. That's four young players to build a core with in the same season. It's a huge chip for a rebuilder, like I believe to be the unfortunate fate of the Pels in a loss of Davis scenario. I don't think I'm alone on the value of that.


12.) 29 Dec 2018 21:43:39
Even if the pols traded two of the 4 four Boston pucks to get a lotto pick or 3. They get brown, 2 rookies and the other filers by celts. Laker fans seem to overvalue BI and kuz. And if it's a total rebuild pels probably get a first trading holiday too.


13.) 30 Dec 2018 00:30:37
Your lay out would mean nothing. None those picks hold star potential. They will be ten or better plus no guarantee they can package them to get a better one. But Lakers can guarantee that Ingram and kuz are above average nba players. They were like 4 games from playoffs last year without a star in the west with randle and Ingram leading scorers with 16.plus gaining experience just playing with James. Like I said I don't think Boston will include tatum. If ad wanted Boston he would want them to keep tatum and be patient. Honestly I don't believe the Lakers should trade 4 young players and picks for A. D. but the plus is they would have ad James and no overpaid and unwanted players they will have cap to add to those two players next year if traded now. Like if Boston traded for ad next year they will pray Heyward gets better or I don't think they will be that good like expected.

Irving
Heyward
Tatum
Davis
Will they get a center or start ad. They will be all the way capped out. Will horford opt out and take less or will he be traded to get A. D. best thing Boston can do is trade Heyward, smart and brown to get ad. Heyward contract reminding me of stat contract killing the team.


14.) 30 Dec 2018 01:51:23
Of course Boston will include Tatum if it's needed. I think you underestimate what a celtics lineup could look like next season. They are willing to plug in 4 new guys with Irving if needed, 3 if Davis was acquired. Ainge is a go getter, and Irving is a gamer with at least 6 more seasons left in him at a high level.


15.) 30 Dec 2018 06:39:17
So how would the trade look next year and who would Boston sign. How much cap would Boston have after your trade. I'm waiting. Plus how would the draft choices work.


16.) 30 Dec 2018 15:24:44
Since you continue to claim that the Lakers have the 4 '19 1sts covered no problem, and Tatum isn't included what would be the point in attempting to have a conversation with you? You hate the celtics obviously. I'm not into interested in hate or biased conversations. Just facts, that hopefully add up to produce proof of a concept. I am not a daydreamer that was beat out of me a long time ago.


 

 

27 Dec 2018 06:39:53
So are the Heat settled with their point guard rotation with Dragic to be out until at least the all star break?

They announced today that Winslow was the starting point guard. Seems like they could use a more true point guard if they want to make the playoffs.

NBA

1.) 29 Dec 2018 19:44:25
Winslow thriving at point guard.

I’m an OKC fan and really want Terrence Ross, but who would be our backup PF after this deal?
We have a trade exception so I’m sure we could just remove Patterson and replace him with Luwawu and it becomes more attracting fit 2nd.
