IF MIN trades Covington, (and I doubt this happens so he can teach the kids some defense), it will be for win-later, upside talent that matches KAT’s timeline.


2.) 13 Sep 2019 15:39:33
Not sure i'm Spurs would agree to such a trade. But the lineup would not be so bad but different!

Murray
Walker IV
Wiggins
Covington
LA.


3.) 13 Sep 2019 18:17:53
Not sure Pop is interested in coaching Wiggins. Especially when he has a few young wings already on the roster who may be just as good as Wiggins is.

MIN has Towns locked in for five years. They can’t afford to deal him.


2.) 12 Sep 2019 16:12:27
Minny is tied to Towns and Wiggins as their two highest paid players for the next few years, can they afford the status quo?


3.) 13 Sep 2019 06:29:44
LOL! Linking Towns to Wiggins is bad enough, but the trade unlink them and trades Towns!


4.) 13 Sep 2019 15:20:38
Well, you have to give up assets on an already bad team to trade Wiggins. That doesn't feel successful short or long term. Find me a way to improve the team to be a solid playoff team while trading Wiggins and I'll buy into that as a possibility. I just don't see it.

By trading Towns, yes, you're admitting you're basically tanking. But isn't that better than wallowing in the mid-late lottery with a bunch of ok pieces around a second tier star?


5.) 13 Sep 2019 17:26:53
Bmiller- doing and their pg coming off books wolves can add next summer.


6.) 13 Sep 2019 18:13:33
Add what? What is Minny luring to play with Towns and Wiggins? Even if they have a full max amount open, they're not pulling Steph Curry or Harden to come and be their #1 option. Maybe they can get a guy like Aaron Gordon when his deal is up. They couldn't land Russell (who probably doesn't even cement them as a playoff team) .

I just think Minnesota's short term outlook isn't great. They're too old with too few assets and too many big contracts to be building, but they're not good enough to not build.


7.) 13 Sep 2019 19:30:41
Betcha ATL would give a treasure trove for KAT.


8.) 14 Sep 2019 03:16:36
MIN’s future is KAT. Finding a potential superstar is the hardest step towards relevance, and they have one in KAT.

I agree they need to add talent, but don’t think it’s coming from free agency. MIN is not a free agent destination, so using assets to clear Wiggins’ contract doesn’t necessarily mean they can replace that payroll with a star. They need to hold onto their young assets and picks, and hope that they can develop complimentary talent to KAT.


9.) 14 Sep 2019 03:25:45
BTW, if you think MIN is “too old, ” you need to check out MIN’s current roster.

This summer, Rosas got rid of Taj Gibson, Jerry’s Bayless, Anthony Tolliver, and Derek Rose. They still have Teague 30 (expires this season), Dieng 29 (expires next season), Napier 28 (expiring, they got him free), and they love the 28 year old Covington.

The entire rest of their roster is between the ages of 20-25. Rosas made an effort to focus on adding players that were Towns’ age. They are younger than most teams, but they are less talented and more shallow. Next season is not win-now, with questions on the bench throughout the line up.


10.) 14 Sep 2019 05:59:50
But KAT isn’t a superstar. He’s a secondary star. No way he can be the best player on a top 4 seed. You’re not looking for a compliment, you’re looking for a #1.

“Too old” was probably the wrong term. Too many guys on big contracts. Very few rookie contracts. And almost no assets.

Cavs - Sabonis and McDermott

Pacers - Henson Osman and Porter Jr

- Cavs get a much needed promising young big

- Pacers get more wing firepower while Oladipo is out and another backup big until Bitadze is ready

Trying to figure out what from Cleveland comes within the same ballpark as the value of Sabonis. You overvaluing Osman that much? Or Porter?

Favorite player at each position?

My list

PG - Kemba Walker
SG - Victor Oladipo
SF- Lebron James
PF - Lauri Markannen
C - KAT

NBA16

1.) 26 Aug 2019 13:56:15
Pg: Fox / Lillard
Sg: oladipo/ k leonard
Sf:p george/ doncic
Pf:porzingis/ giannis antetoukompo
C: m turner/ d cousins.


2.) 26 Aug 2019 16:21:16
Fox
Thompson
K. Leonard
Durant
Embiid.


3.) 26 Aug 2019 17:28:40
Lillard, virtual tie: Curry

Klay, Second: McCollum

Giannis (what position does he actually play? I'm putting him here), Second: Leonard

Blake Griffin, Second: Draymond (on the court while in control, off he seems like a douche)

Gobert, Second Robin Lopez (entertainment value, not necessarily play on the court)


4.) 27 Aug 2019 00:57:52
This is preference right?

Pg Rose tied with Westbrook
Sg Since Kobe, only Wade is my bet on SG and since he just retired i have to select one and Mitchell will be my choice
Sf Kawhi Leonard
Pf Greek Freak
Ce Joker.


5.) 27 Aug 2019 03:45:14
Irving
Klay
James
Davis
Howard.

Who would you build your team around?

Guards
Fox - Young - Morant

Forwards
Zion - Doncic- Tatum

Big Man
Ayton - Bagley - JJJ

NBA16

1.) 19 Aug 2019 16:35:33
Fox
Doncic
None? I can't have Collins or Markkanen? If I have to pick one of those 3, I guess Ayton.

Forward seems like the easiest pick unless you're completely sold on Zion. I think he'll be good, but I'd take the known quality of Doncic.


2.) 19 Aug 2019 17:47:08
FOX/ TATUM/ BAGLEY.

Like I am not going to take the 2 Kings. Hello?

I would be tempted to take JJJ over Bagley thou in order to have the best defensive combination. Ayton reminds me too much of WCS with a jumper.


3.) 19 Aug 2019 19:19:53
Ayton reminds me of Kanter. But he could end up somewhere around KAT too.

That scares me away from him, but the other two don't have the feel of anything more than a solid role player center (Steven Adams type guy) .

None make me feel great about the pick as a "building block". Not sure any can be a top 3 player on a championship team. I feel that the guards and forwards can get there.


4.) 19 Aug 2019 20:29:53
I think (praying? ) Bagley's second year will be around 18/ 8. That is Chris Bosh/ Kevin Love 3rd wheel level.


5.) 19 Aug 2019 21:16:59
That's fair. I'll admit that I didn't watch an enormous amount of Kings or Grizz games, so it's not like I watched Bagley and JJJ that much (maybe 10 games each) .

I'm definitely hoping and praying for a massive step forward by Zach Collins (and Simons) too, so I get your feelings for this year. I'm hoping for a 14/ 8 year, with 38/ 50/ 80 shooting percentages.

Nuggets should be the team to give Melo his farewell tour. He can be a reserve and a solid backup option Incase injuries start to pile up for them

NBA16

1.) 31 Jul 2019 03:10:06
They’re already ridiculously deep and they’re going to be crunched for minutes when healthy. Murray, Morris, Harris, Barton, Beasley, Grant, Craig, Millsap, Plumlee, and Jokic all need minutes. That’s 10 players and they also have MPJ, Bol, and Hernangomez, who could get/ need/ deserve minutes. They don’t need Melo at all, they don’t have minutes for him and they have title aspirations. Melo forced his way out of Denver. They have no reason to and shouldn’t be trying to give Melo some kind of send off season.


2.) 31 Jul 2019 03:17:16
Can you call it a farewell tour if the player never plays a minute in the games?

Who you waiving to create the roster spot?

1.) 27 Jul 2019 03:38:33
Klay thompson is a SG.


2.) 27 Jul 2019 03:39:15
Kawhi is the #1 SF.


3.) 27 Jul 2019 10:20:02
i have high expetations on Fox, i think he's going to be close to an all star. (Just my opinion)


4.) 27 Jul 2019 13:39:58
Simmons>Westbrook, but I’ll let time prove that one.


5.) 27 Jul 2019 15:33:53
Fredman read before you comment. When Klay is back he will start at the 3 this year and DLo at the 2. Clippers lineup will most likely look like Bev/ Shamet/ PG/ Kawhi/ Harrel or Zubac so Kawhi will most likely spend more mins at PF.


6.) 27 Jul 2019 15:34:45
Gasupo I agree, I love Fox’s game and hope he continues to improve.


7.) 27 Jul 2019 16:18:02
I’d move McCollum above Booker and Russell.


8.) 27 Jul 2019 17:56:15
NBA. Maybe with the acceptance of more positionless basketball, you should categorize more like how the All-Star balloting is done.

Guards, Forwards and Centers.

Just not seeing Kawhi guarding Anthony Davis or LAM or Horford at what you label the PF.


9.) 29 Jul 2019 19:38:41
What players "start" as and what their natural position are isn't the same. No one is classifying Leonard as a PF. They just don't start one. They play two SF/ wing.

Side note: The NBA should change their classifications to point, wing, and big. Siakim is a wing that starts at 4. Davis is a big that starts at 4. They shouldn't be in the same classification.

What about Gallo and Roberson for Ibaka Powell and OG

- Raptors add another scorer that they need in absence of Kawhi while also adding a true lockdown perimeter player. Also gets off of Powell’s contract to resign/ sign more players.

- Okc gets their PF and a nice young SF prospect to pair w SGA in the future.

Lowry/ Roberson/ Gallo/ Siakam/ Gasol
FVF/ McCaw/ Johnson/ RHJ/ Boucher

CP3/ SGA/ OG/ Ibaka/ Adams
Schroder/ Ferguson/ Powell/ Muscala/ Noel.
