Chicago, Denver and NY will shock a few people next season.

Agree0 Disagree1

10 Aug 2018 23:49:47
Denver could and possibly Chicago, but the Knicks won’t have Porzingas for atleast a long stretch of the year. I can’t see them being competitive without him.

11 Aug 2018 01:27:27
Chicago will be improved but I don't think they'll make the playoffs. Denver could be really good or barely hanging in the west for a playoff bid. NY is going tank mode with lots of minutes for Fizdale to figure out who his core is. Big season for knox, ntilikina, hardaway, burke, mudiay, kornet, baker. Make or break time in NY. The knicks will be involved in deadline trades and draft and offseason trades is my guess and waive noah first week in Sept.

11 Aug 2018 03:31:49
Denver’s being picked as high as third in the West. Are you saying they’ll be bad and shocking? Or good and “shocking”? (I think they miss the playoffs)

Chicago is interesting. If healthy, those young guys could be really good. Could be a 40-42 or 41-41 playoff team.

Miami sending Whiteside to Cleveland for Korver and Thompson is being pretty heavily rumored.

If Miami doesn't have any they way to dump Whiteside and thinks it's to toxic a situation to keep him around, I don't think it's horrible for them. They want to play Bam any way and Thompson can eat up whatever minutes are left. I'm not sure where Korver's minutes will come from, but it wouldn't be a surprise if the Heat moved some of their wings at some point.

For the Cavs, it's not terrible as long as that is all they're giving up. I'd prefer they keep Korver, because I think he's good for their young guys, but it's not like he's on Cleveland past this year anyway. Whiteside could give them something. I just wonder if that something is worth the risk of bringing him into the locker room.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Aug 2018 01:09:40
Probably have to trade Korver unless wade retires.

10 Aug 2018 01:54:40
Just saw that Waiters and Clarkson could be involved as well.

09 Aug 2018 21:42:07
NY gets: Asik, Felicio

CHI gets: Noah.

Agree0 Disagree1

10 Aug 2018 00:41:33
Ny would waive noah before doing this.

09 Aug 2018 20:12:41
So Leonard thanked the spurs fans for supporting popovich and calling Leonard a liar? Interesting. My thank you would have been 2 weeks late too.

Agree0 Disagree2

Suns-Cavs

If the Cavs decide to shift to youth, and the Suns want to try to get booker in playoffs.

Cavs get Warren Chandler and their choice of bender or chriss

Suns get love and zizic

Agree1 Disagree2

Good deal.

09 Aug 2018 07:41:55
If you’re an NBA fan, then you should be rooting for Klay Thompson to leave the Warriors next summer if KD stays. Klay is in the middle of his prime and shouldn’t waste it being a 3rd option on a team. I think he’d make more All-NBA teams by being a 1st or high 2nd option on a team.

My top 3 teams where I think he’d be a great fit to realistically sign next offseason are the Lakers, Mavericks, and 76ers.

Agree1 Disagree3

09 Aug 2018 13:49:24
In phili he’d be a third option too. In LA Lebron is basically the first two options, so again, third option (in a way) .

And he goes to a worse team and leave multiple championships. I don’t see it happening.

Also, why do all NBA fans have to hope that the warriors dynasty breaks up? The NBA is built on dynasties. Lakers, Celtics, Bulls. None of those were “bad for the league”. Why is Golden State?

09 Aug 2018 13:50:49
I could see Durant leaving in free agency before Klay.

09 Aug 2018 15:35:56
He wouldn't be a third option in philly. he'd be a high second option. Simmons isn't a shooter, he just makes his dunks and putbacks.

As for the lebron comment, not even sure what you are talking about. So now lebron is a major ball hog? that's absolutely the first time I've ever heard someone try and claim that lebron is a major ball hog. Interesting given his love for passing, but sure!

09 Aug 2018 17:10:22
Lebron's usage rate is higher than just about anyone in the entire NBA ever. Just because he gets a lot of assists doesn't mean that he isn't dominating the ball the majority of the time.

I'd dispute that being a ballhog is a bad thing anyway. I'd rather have the ball in Lebron's hands 90% of the time than give it to JR Smith more.


And Simmons is a ball dominant PG. His usage rate was top 30 in the NBA as a rookie, and that will go up as he gets better and his shot improves. Klay's role on that team would be spot up shooter and weak side scorer, just like his role now.

09 Aug 2018 19:46:56
Lebron is 5th. Not sure how that equates to first and second option.

Simmons, according to nba. com wasn’t top 50. Regardless. He’s a point guard. So being that low would probably equate to not ball dominate.

You seem to confuse the term option with ball handler. Thompson would be the clear second option for both teams, not the ball handler.

10 Aug 2018 20:39:41
Gsw keeps the team together until they lose. Gsw should win again this season, sign Thompson next season, try for a four-peat. They could do it if curry stays healthy and or can find a young prospect to play back-up to curry on the cheap. Even a wiley vet like Beverly could be a huge help.

09 Aug 2018 00:32:36
Im so sick of the knicks management to consider cutting noah is bad bussiness move. Kepp him 1 more yr and use stretch provision next yr. Knicks have no reason create cap space this yr. They only double the amount against cap if they his final yr. Knicks need dump Kournet or Baker

Agree0 Disagree4

09 Aug 2018 15:38:07
Shizzee, you are literally the most ignorant basketball fan. The reason they are waiting til Sept 1 to stretch him is because it does stretch him for just the 1 year while having this year count for this year.

According to Wojnarowski and Begley, waiving Noah via the stretch provision after Sept. 1 would keep his $18.5 million salary on the books for next season but allow them to pay out his $19.3 million salary for the 2019-20 campaign in three installments with cap hits $6.4 million in the summers of '20 and '21.

Seriously, think before you type.

09 Aug 2018 18:31:37
Lakers may do the same with deng. But his cap hit will be a lil less. But I would keep Noah and Deng and attach a 2020 first on draft night to dump them.

09 aug 2018 22:54:22
so you feel the same way about knicks management as we all do about your knicks trades!

10 Aug 2018 20:42:14
Dolan did just write a love song for Harvey Weinstein and performed it on TV. Does it get any worse?

10 Aug 2018 21:01:36
Yeah, I don’t get the logic behind cutting him now. They’re not in the luxury and there isn’t anyone left worth giving money to in free agency. It just adds a few million in spending next year over just stretching them then plus they’ll have money tied until 21-22 rather than just 20-21. Plus, he’ll be infinitely easier to move next summer when teams have space and it’s just a one year thing for a team that won’t use their cap anyway.

11 Aug 2018 00:01:28
The thought is it allows them to go hard next free agency. Sign a couple max contracts if possible then deal with the ramifications down the line. It’s a sign that they believe they can make an impact next year as opposed to waiting.

08 Aug 2018 22:34:19
I love some of the headlines coming out of Cleveland . Cavs still open to moving J.R. Smith . Wow we are all surprised by that the Cavs would love to punt him , his Lebron helped contract ,his bowl of soup and his brain fades to where ever they could
