If Kings do have a chance at keeping AD. Remember, only if they have a chance. No reaction if they don't have a chance please. Just want to know if they can offer something competitive without giving up Fox and Hield.

NOP sends Anthony Davis, Etwann Moore

SAC sends Marvin Bagley, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Harrison Barnes (opt in) & 2 1st round picks

NOP get a pair of young studs and a veteran forward

Pg Holiday
Sg Bogdanovic
Sf Barnes
Pf Randle
Ce Bagley

SAC finally lands a superstar that will play along with their 2 young back court guys.

They still have the space.

Sign Bojan Bogdanovic 3yr/36mil

Pg Fox-Ferrel-Mason
Sg Hield-Moore
Sf Bogdanovic-Swanigan
Pf Harris-Bjelica

20 Feb 2019 10:56:37
The Kings are building a team that has been timed to contend after the Warriors begin their decline. Their youth (Fox, Giles, or Bagley) are not on the table for any trades.

Counter offer: replace Bagley with Cauley-Stein, remove Moore, Bogdanovic, and one of the future picks.

20 Feb 2019 12:58:07
First, Mr. Sluggo, can't trade WCS because he is a RFA and a S&T cannot include other Kings players.

Secondly, I don't think the Kings have the cap space Psiphon is describing. They had $50 mil in cap space before the Harrison Barnes trade. His opt in of $25 mil eats up half of that space since the Sac-NO deal is fairly even on salary.

I think the Kings would be better keeping their young talent and draft picks and use their remaining cap space to go after Vucevic.

20 Feb 2019 14:59:26
I don’t like Vucevic as a target for them unless they’re letting WCS walk and committing to making one of Bagley or Giles a PF long term. Yes, I know both are/ have played the PF position this year, but I feel like both would be better served at the 5.

20 Feb 2019 18:31:31
Triangle. Vuceviv>>WCS.

Also, I think Giles needs to run with the 2nd unit a little longer.

Fox, Hield, Barnes, Bagley, Vucevic
Yogi, Bb8,?, Bjelica, Giles.

Caleb Martin with one of the 2nd rounders?

Dallas match.

18 Feb 2019 12:49:49
They could sign T Harris for a 100M 4year deal and D Rose 14M 2 year deal, if Dallas match the offer.

18 Feb 2019 15:27:34
Kings are all over that first part. But not sure how they pull that off because the Nets will not know if Crabbe is opting in or out for the 2019-20 season on draft day. Most likely he is, but are tge Nets willing to be stuck with the Kings draft selection if Crabbe opts out?

18 Feb 2019 16:42:05
You think Dallas gave up DSJ and two future 1st to have Porzingis on their roster (not playing) for the rest of this season? He isn't going anywhere.

18 Feb 2019 17:23:31
Crabbe is making 18.5 M. next year. Why would he opt out?

18 Feb 2019 17:28:01
Crabbe opting out would be very shocking. I can't see any situation where he does that.

18 Feb 2019 19:58:13
If Crabbe opted out of 18.5 he wouldn't make that much the rest of his career.

18 Feb 2019 08:54:43

Celtics- Davis, Hill

Pelicans- Tatum, Horford, Smart, Yabusele, Grizzlies & Kings 1st round picks

18 Feb 2019 19:44:45
Pelicans counter with

Pelicans trade Davis, Hill and Moore

Boston trades Horford, Tatum, Williams, Ojeleye, Kings 1st, Memphis 1st, Boston 1st.

18 Feb 2019 21:08:25
I agree @Fredman.

17 Feb 2019 19:20:05
After Harrison Barnes opts into his final year.

Kings trade Harrison Barnes + 2020 2nd rounder (either Miami or Detroit)

Minnesota trades Georgi Dieng and Robert Covington.

17 Feb 2019 20:38:23
Why would Minnesota do that?

17 Feb 2019 21:49:33
Frees themselves out of a ton of future salary.

18 Feb 2019 03:30:44
A ton of future salary? Covington plays way better than his money. And Dieng is only making $8 million more total for 2 years over Barnes' 1 year.

13 Feb 2019 16:50:05
Celtics Offseason Moves

Re-sign Terry Rozier
Re-sign Kyrie Irving
Re-sign Marcus Morris
Re-sign Brad Wanamaker
Draft Tre Jones
Sign Tyreke Evans

Trade Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown, and 2019 1st via Grizzlies to Grizzlies for Jaren Jackson Jr and Avery Bradley

Then trade for Anthony Davis and E'twaun Moore for Jayson Tatum, Terry Rozier, Al Horford, Guerschon Yabusele 2019 via Clippers and 2019 via Kings

Opening Game roster
Jackson Jr./Theis

13 Feb 2019 17:27:33
Is this a my dream analogy throwing all rules and guidelines out of the window proposal? Red is now blue or something?

13 Feb 2019 19:36:27
Common man, jackson is not going to be traded. Grizzlies will be stuck with the 2 most overpaid whiteboys. Why would pelicans want 33 yr old (next yr) horford in rebuilding yr. For 30 mil per yr. Kyrie is gone. Celtics are better with him. But if you continue to post like this, danny Ainge might need to look over his shoulder😉.

13 Feb 2019 19:38:02
U can't trade players who resign until january.

13 Feb 2019 21:56:09
Sign and trade you can, but then that player can only be traded by himself.

Grizz are not dealing JJJ.

14 Feb 2019 00:20:20
Horford is included for salary purposes shizzee. He's a massive expiring contract and a great role player. They could easily flip him for assets.

Why would they want Rondo and McGee? They don't, it's salary cap filler.

That said, yeah, Rozier can't be included until Dec 15th if he resigns (he can't be at all if he signs a offer sheet that is matched) . Rozier being involved in any AD trade at this point is nearly impossible.

14 Feb 2019 01:58:42
Celts needto let kyrie walk.

11 Feb 2019 16:46:46
Most likely to happen? Even if some sounds stupid or delusional :) next season


1. Kings and Cousins reunion. Cousins signs a 4yrs max contract

Pg Fox
Sg Hield
Sf Barnes
Pf Bagley
Ce Cousins

this team can make noise

2. AD stays in NOLA after resigning or he became a Clipper along with Kawhi Leonard

3. Derrick Rose back in Chicago, stays healthy and leads them back to playoffs

4. Rockets made CP3 available and someone bites (who do you think?)

5. No one goes to Lakers. LeBron declines.

6. Durant goes to Lakers :)

7. Cleveland gets number one pick again

8. Suns sign Kemba & one more big time free agent

9. Spurs trade Derozan

10. Timberwolves becomes bottom dwellers again in the West

11. Mitchell & Doncic become all stars

12. Dwayne Wade comes back

13. Kobe becomes LAL coach

14. Lillard or McCollum trade

15. NYK playoffs

11 Feb 2019 18:40:17
1. I Don't see it happening

2. The Clippers seem to have the assets to pull off a trade, that wouldn't be shocking at all. No chance he resigns in NO.

3. I could see that happening.

4. I think Houston would do anything. They run things very unemotionally. Maybe Orlando makes a bid if they re-sign Vuc? Nos sure they have what Houston would want, but they're someone that would try.

5. Feels very likely.

6. 0% chance. He wouldn't join another team to be called a coward. It's a lowly team that needs him like the Knicks, or it's back to GS.

7. AGAIN! Yep, they jump the Knicks and get Zion.

8. I don't see it. Maybe a big offer sheet player, but not an established all star.

9. The Spurs could do anything. Trading Derozan is definitely on the table.

10. This already happened? They're the third worst team in the west right now.

11. If both of these guys don't make it to 4+ all star games, I'd be surprised.

12. Nah, not after the tour he's had.

13. He'd be a hoooooorible coach. Too much of a perfectionist and too much ego to coach.

14. McCollum: 33%, Lillard: 0%

15. 2025?

11 Feb 2019 19:36:40
5 is the most likely to happen. But I am looking at "no one" as being "no star player". I can see Tyreke Evans signing a short term one year deal.

11 Feb 2019 20:43:40
Right Fredman, I was assuming no one meant no star.

11 Feb 2019 22:58:55
Rise ain't st as ying healthy.

11 Feb 2019 23:26:48
2. AD stays in NOLA after resigning or he became a Clipper along with Kawhi Leonard I wish but no to staying even w extension. Clips only hyave shot if Ainge gets weak

3. Derrick Rose back in Chicago, stays healthy and leads them back to playoffs nope

4. Rockets made CP3 available and someone bites (who do you think? ) Possible

5. No one goes to Lakers. LeBron declines. I'd love to see it but unlikely

6. Durant goes to Lakers :) maybe

7. Cleveland gets number one pick again Nope 1 outta 3 shot

8. Suns sign Kemba and one more big time free agent El Paso says Kemba

9. Spurs trade Derozan Good shot

10. Timberwolves becomes bottom dwellers again in the West Or at least close

11. Mitchell and Doncic become all stars Over time yes

12. Dwayne Wade comes back Why ask?

13. Kobe becomes LAL coach Nahhh

14. Lillard or McCollum trade L= Nope M =YEPP

15. NYK playoffs Within 3 years.

07 Feb 2019 22:24:37
The T Harris trade has a great impact. Does this mean Boston loses the poleposition in having the best assets for AD?

The Clippers can fall in the lottery, so they keep their pick

Sacramento can get the eight seat, so Bonston could lose a lottery pick.

And they already lose the 2019 Memphis pick (2020 or 2021)

Who could make the best offer for him?

Boston: Sacramento pick+ 2020 Clippers and Memphis pick+ Tatum+ Hayward

LA: Ingram+ Ball+ Kuzma+ 1rnd pick

Clippers: 1rnd pick+ 1rnd pick Philly 2020+ 1rnd pick Miami 2021+SGA+ Robinson

Chicago: Markannen+ Ayton+ 1rnd pick

NY: Knox+ 1rnd pick NY+ 1rnd pick Dallas 2021 and 2023

07 Feb 2019 23:07:47
Markannen and Ayton eh? I’ll take that forsure man.

07 Feb 2019 23:22:37
Chicago doesn’t have Ayton

Imo if Knicks land No.1 it’s them. They have a ton of young assets. (Zion) Know Trier Smith Robinson plus 2 Dallas 1st.

08 Feb 2019 00:07:04
Knicks offer dsj know and 3 picks unprotected he is gone.

08 Feb 2019 00:39:26
They would never take Hayward or Horford.

08 Feb 2019 00:42:33
Ayton is Phoenix, you mean carter.

Knicks have williamson DSJ tilikina Mudiay Trier Dotson Trier Robinson and 4 1st,

Nobody comes close.

08 Feb 2019 01:05:44
What was reported today. in Boston was,
3 1st rd picks
In a deal for AD.

08 Feb 2019 05:50:01
Horford is 32, next yr 33, 30 mil in final yr. why would they take him. don't even bother mentioning Hayward

Brown Rozier can't be included bc they are not under contract. can't do sign and trade with multiple players.

Smart Tatum Yubusele Williams Ojeleye 3 1st

Knicks offer every player 23 yrs and younger

Williamson/ Barrett Knox DSJ Ntilikina Robinson Trier Dotson 4 1st.

08 Feb 2019 10:10:43
Shizzee. Boston has the best player in any trade scenario in Tatum. Knicks couldn't offer anything better, even Williamson. He he or may not be better than Tatum. We don't know.
Second, Brown doesn't come up for a contract this year. Only Rozier.
I know you're trying to rebuild your Knicks all on your own, but it's not happening.

08 Feb 2019 10:18:58
Brown is under contract next year.
Pels don't need Horford or Hayward and the Clippers pick is really bad (if they sign a star) or will get two 2nd rounders.

Celtics offer musst look like:
- Tatum
- Smart
- Brown
- Picks

Would be perfect as the Pels seem to trust in Randle and Okafor in the future. So getting them players in positions of need will get evaluated better.

If Knicks get a top 3 Pick and add Knox and DSJ or Ntilikina that might be better than my offer.

08 Feb 2019 12:00:29
If Knicks win lottery they will have best assets not even close coming from a Laker fan. Knox Williamson dotson 4 picks dsj and Robinson plus a few other okay pieces.
I don't think the pelicans are waiting Boston I think there waiting to see how the draft falls.

08 Feb 2019 12:41:15
Ranking them in order

1) Boston. Hayward out Brown Rozier in take Hill or Moore

2) Knicks If they get 1 pick, add DSJ

3) Clips with some adds

4) Chi and LA not even close.

08 Feb 2019 12:43:45
Boston may have to give up tatum for ad to secure Irving to resign. Like Irving may not resign if Boston don't get ad.

08 Feb 2019 20:59:07
Celtics fans🤦🏻‍♂️.

08 Feb 2019 23:14:36
Boston should went after zinger. Isiah Thomas smh. Listen to AD father. Irving and Davis will let you know July. Even if they choose la instead ny.

09 Feb 2019 04:31:20
Clippers are interesting especially if they can get New Orleans to take Gallinari (he would be on an expiring deal) back in an Anthony Davis deal.

Dont count out the Jerry West factor as well.

07 Feb 2019 14:03:41
The Barnes trade is still in make so let`s see if the Mavs can make the maximum move! They are for sure interested in Walker and Vucevic.

Orlando should tank. So help them. : ) and they may want CAP in the summer. And Orlando would propably lose Vucevic in 4 month for nothing.

Hornets are in the middle of nothing with less flexibility. Walker told, he want to win. So Mavs could offer them young talent instead of the risk to lose Walker in 4 month for nothing.

- Barnes
- Mozgov, Vucevic, Walker
- Mejri, Broekhoff, future 2nd Mavs
- Brunson, Jackson, Randoph, future 1st Mavs and 2nd 2019

07 Feb 2019 15:33:15
i don't think Dallas can trade another first round pick
Atlanta owns the 2019 pick, and NY owns the 2021 and 2023 picks.

07 Feb 2019 15:46:01
Dallas and Cuban are stuck with players who can't defend. Only Powell and Lee remains who can defend decently.

07 Feb 2019 16:37:06
So there is time for the Kings to back out of this? Would rather let Randolph expire and make offers to Bogdanovich (indy) / Ariza as well as Vucevic than take on Barnes and his future cap when he opts in for next year.

07 Feb 2019 16:43:34
Shizzee aren’t you forgetting your boy, Porzingis.

07 Feb 2019 18:08:45
Fredman kings did great. I think if they could got porter it would been better. I don't think the kings can sign a wing better then Barnes in free agency.

07 Feb 2019 22:37:04
Bojan/ Ariza are reported as unavailable by their teams.

07 Feb 2019 22:38:37
Zinger great shot blocker when on the floor, move him away from the basket he was done AKA manute bol.

06 Feb 2019 15:53:06
Beverly, Gallo, LRMM to Kings

ZBO, Shumpert, Skal, 1st (2021) to Clippers.

06 Feb 2019 16:57:23
The pick should be moving the other way.

06 Feb 2019 21:45:07
No want Gallo! No want Gallo!

06 Feb 2019 03:12:04
NOP receives Harris (exp), Gortat (exp), McLemore (exp), SGA, Robinson, 2 1st round picks LAC, 2nd round pick LAC

LAC receives Davis, Randolph, Hill

SAC receive Gallinari, 1st from LAC

Kings get shooter from wing

Pg Fox-Ferrell
Sg Hield-Bogdanovic

LAC form big 3 by signing Leonard & Kemba next season if they can

Pg Walker-Beverley
Sg Bradley-Williams
Sf Leonard-Thornwell
Pf Davis-Scott

06 Feb 2019 04:26:15
Gallinari can not play the SF position in Kins uptempo offense. Too slow and a defense liability.

06 Feb 2019 06:19:20
Bjelica is doing just fine in this high pace offense. Gallinari would be fine.

06 Feb 2019 14:01:46
As a PF, yes. But the Kings have a ton of PFs, but not at SF/ Wing. Pratically the same thing with Barnes. Kings don't need a combo forward, they need a true SF.

06 Feb 2019 17:00:31
In what world is Gallinari not a true SF.

05 Feb 2019 09:43:48
Let's say before the deadline Lebron tells Magic if they don't get Davis he wants to be traded ...
Lebron and Irving seem to be all buddy buddy now so why not trade James to the Celtics

Tatum , Williams ,Hayward , 2019 Celtics 1st , 2019 Kings 1st

05 Feb 2019 10:08:00
Hahsha. funniest thing I've heard. First, James won't. He made such an ordeal about going to LA for his family and business opportunities.
2nd, no way the Celtics give up so many assets for the 35 year old King.

05 Feb 2019 13:34:18
Bron is not leaving LA, period. His move there was for more than basketball, and that should be evident by watching him give up one of his few remaining prime years with this roster while preaching patience.

05 Feb 2019 13:43:18
You only say that bc he would never go. joe, Celtics are 1 yr away from loosing irving and not getting Davis all bc the Celtics live in the past . So desperate to get the next white hope, overpay hayward has ruin their cap.

05 Feb 2019 14:59:23
Shizzee, I'm sure your team has a few bad contracts. Everyone does. Secondly, July is only 5 months from now. And not only won'tbe LOSING Irving, Davis will bea Celtic.
New Orleans wants Tatum and they will get him.
Once Irving knows that Davis 8s coming to Boston, he will be resigning. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

05 Feb 2019 16:50:32
I don’t understand how Hayward was such a horrible contract at the time? He was an all star. It’s not like the payed a fringe starter max money.

Also, a Knicks fan talking about living in the past?!? The Celtics were in the conference finals last year. They’re living on current and future success. The Knicks haven’t been good in.25 years? They’re somehow the “Mecca of basketball” still when they haven’t had a championship in 46 years. How are they signing any relevant free agents with 0 talent and one of the worst owners in pro sports?

05 Feb 2019 17:10:14
Typical New York fan. His team cannot do wrong. The problem is, the Knicks can't do anything right.
The Knicks haven't done anything right since the early 70's. Unless you want to count the Bernard King era.
As far as Hayward, if he had signed with the Knicks, it would be a totally different story with them.

05 Feb 2019 18:02:39
Knicks - 10-42.

05 Feb 2019 18:43:22
Knicks have an upcoming opportunity. The problem is that the Knicks recently have made poor choices when provided oppournities. There is nothing to suggest that trend will change.

05 Feb 2019 18:57:03
Celtics were in ecf last year. But Lakers and knocks think AD is going there. Who lives in the past?

05 Feb 2019 19:34:47
Fredman, the KP trade probably signals that they’re going to make another bad decision. Rose looks worthy of a Knicks max right now and Wall is on the trade block. A big 3 of Cousins, Rose and Wall is probably coming to MSG in a few months.

05 Feb 2019 20:33:13
Rkenne lmao we ny wants kevin love.

05 Feb 2019 20:43:36
Bottomline is this as you said it knicks haven't won in 47 years. Here is the Double standard. If they win in ny, there legacy would make them legendary more so than winning on team like the celtics and Lakers who franchise already are already winners. Davis durant irving are all about there legacy. Lebron had other attention beside winning. To win in ny despite having the most hated sports owner, is ultimate fu to Dolan. These can guys will be treated like magic bird pierce.

05 Feb 2019 20:32:18
Listen to AD father, AD picked the 4 location he would resign not 1clocation was boston and he would not go accept trade without irving, Listen to Irving, Irving is 1 and done, only a championship will keep him there, Celtics have not shown they are championship team this yr. Hayward signing, knicks been there with Allen Houston 5yr 100mil. You overpaid Hayward and Horford to go there. Irving did not choose Boston. Listen to Mark Stein.

Pelicans waiting on Who wins lotto. Bulls Cavs knicks or Suns. Williamson to bulls or knicks can make a difference to land Davis. Its doesn't matter how horrible the Knicks have been. Knicks gm and Durant have a connection 10 yrs. Irving is like Marbury and Melo always choose knicks over any team if there was slight chance of winning in ny. 2nd opt lebron and Lakers. 10-42 that is right, tanking. Like what you did get brown and tatum. Only tanking doesn't matter this yr like before. as long as you finish bottom 4 you equal chance.

05 Feb 2019 21:48:46
So refresh me memory. Name the last "Quality" Free Agent signing done by NY and how long ago was that signing.

06 Feb 2019 12:32:36
First, Ainge doesn't care about what AD's father says. He probably thinks he can change his mind once he gets to Boston.
Who cares who wins the lotto. None of the teams have what it will take to land Davis.

Second, Irving is in his 2nd season in Boston. Even if they don't win a title this year, he will sign the extension if he knows that AD is coming. and he us.
Which will leave the Knicks in the basement, where they belong
Btw. the Celtics got Brown, Rozier and Tatum via the Garnet and Pierce fleecing of the Nets. Not by tanking. Wow. you don't even know that? Lmao.

05 Feb 2019 13:06:37
I was there until you said kings give up a 1st rounder for someone on an expiring contract.

05 Feb 2019 15:13:28
I believe the Bucks would decline!

05 Feb 2019 19:37:48
Torque, the Bucks turn down adding a 2nd young generational talent that says he’d resign to keep two late 1sts, 1 good starter on an expiring and the trash at the end of their bench?

05 Feb 2019 21:38:44
Hello rkenne! Hope you have been well. Now, Milwaukee just doesn't have enough to offer the Pels for Davis! Middleton, and Who? It would take at least 4,5,6 1st rd picks according to NOP. Plus, Middleton, Bledsoe, Brogdan, and Lopez will need to redo their contracts by next year. Who do you start with to keep? Latest word out of Milwaukee is their looking to move Maker, Snell, and possibly Bledsoe? They need more wing help. I would think Maker to the suns for Oubre would do it?

Just an addition to the much discussed Lakers-Pelicans deal whereby Ball gets moved to Orlando and Hill is salary dumped on the Kings.

Celtics trade Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, and four 2019 first round picks (Kings, Grizzlies, Clippers, and their own)

Celtics get Anthony Davis

Knicks trade Enes Kanter, Kevin Knox, and a top 5 protected 2019 first (unprotected in 2020)

Knicks get Kyrie Irving

Pelicans trade Anthony Davis

Pelicans get Enes Kanter, Jaylen Brown, Kevin Knox, Knicks first rounder, and 4 first rounders from Boston

The Celtics can only acquire AD this season by moving Kyrie. This would be a big gamble for Boston, but the Celtics would be guaranteed at least one postseason run with AD. If a potential finals appearance and a bright future isn't enough to get AD to commit, they can trade him for a king's ransom this summer and replenish their assets.

The Knicks traded KP for hope, but now they have something to sell KD on other than just hope. With Kyrie on board the Knicks still would have a max contract slot and would become much more attractive to suitors. The Knicks can also go over the salary cap to re-sign Irving, something they wouldn't be able to do without trading for him.

The Pelicans get a big expiring contract, two promising young talents, and a whopping five first round picks for their superstar. The Pelicans would likely move some of those picks for future firsts, thus making the long term benefits of this deal even greater. I don't see a better offer out there for the Pellies.

Davis is better than Kyrie, but he is not 4 first rounders and a young talent better than Kyrie. Less picks frim Boston, more picks from NY (AKA add those Dallas picks) .

04 Feb 2019 14:43:22
@Fredman fair enough huckleberry.

04 Feb 2019 15:00:55
Unprotected the picks for nola.

04 Feb 2019 15:20:26
Delusional C's fans know if Celtics don't make conference final they will not keep Irving or get Davis.

Tatum and Brown are over rated.

04 Feb 2019 15:24:04
You heard Davis's father, nobody wants to play for puke green.

04 Feb 2019 16:20:17
Knicks fans are adorable in their complete jealousy of Boston.

04 Feb 2019 19:11:00
Your best player is leaving a top 4 team east for the worst team in the nba. That's adorable. Hayward is the next Larry bird. Let's pay 35 mil a season 🤣.

04 Feb 2019 19:19:53
Pretty sure you should realize how stupid that sounds and understand it won’t happen. (Also, not a Boston fan, so not “my” anything)

04 Feb 2019 21:27:55
Side note: You know who's opinion wouldn't matter to me if I'm an NBA exec? Any star player's dad.

Is Anthony Davis' dad right? No. Does his opinion on that matter mean anything? Also no.

04 Feb 2019 21:53:43
NYK -- 10-42.

04 Feb 2019 22:27:16
Knicks fans may want to be quiet until the offseason because if they whiff at signing star FAs this off season, they will become the worse team in the league. by far!

Worse than even those Process 76ers.

04 Feb 2019 22:53:37
I came to his post because its a Pels trade proposal, but i stayed for the Celtics-Knicks fight. lol.

04 Feb 2019 23:47:22
Agreed Fredman. Like they have whiffed every year for what? 20 years? (oh wait! They got a broken Stat and an old Tyson Chandler! )

Holy crap, Amare Stoudemire is still only 36. That's crazy. Seems like he should be in his mid 40's.

04 Feb 2019 23:06:51
I was censored for less than shizzee, and notdrainers little rants on here! Unreal the hypocrisy!

03 Feb 2019 22:31:19
Two trades kings should offer, whichever says done faster gets it:

Sac trades Koufas, shump, zbo and skal
Wash trades porter Mahinmi
Sac also gives a 2nd round pick

Kings get wing they need, wizards take 43mm off books next year and save money this year

Sac trades zbo, shump and skal
Dal trades Barnes
Sac gives 2 nd round picks

With hardaway and lee contracts on books now, Dallas may want to shed Barnes.

As kings fan I'm ok with either. Who think wash or Dallas would do either or?

04 Feb 2019 02:18:46
As a Kings fan, I don't want any part of Barnes. Especially losing Shumpert on the deal as well.

04 Feb 2019 22:30:49
Disagree w you think Barnes solves a lot of problems, maybe they keep Shumpert as well but I’d be shocked if they can land a better small forward in free agency.
