Does a Harrison Barnes for Jonathan Isaac trade make any sense for both teams? Sac gets a PF playable next to Sabonis and Orl gets a veteran known for his leadership.

I can’t see any way Orlando would do that.


2.) 25 Mar 2024 06:08:02
So who is mentoring/ leading this team in the locker room?


3.) 25 Mar 2024 13:03:23
Magic should sign Bruce Brown instead. Isaac is a defensive monster.


4.) 25 Mar 2024 15:57:24
THey can get someone in the Garrett Temple/ Thad Young mold. No need to give up Isaac for a substantially worse player.


5.) 25 Mar 2024 23:35:04
I get the idea of it. But Mentoring doesn’t carry that price tag. Orlando needs to keep their core intact.


6.) 29 Mar 2024 20:37:36
Isaac was going to be a key member for the Magic before he got hurt (several times) . They decided to keep him and pay him even though he didn't play for 3 years or so. Since then, he was replaced by Banchero and Franz, but he is still a key contributor off the bench. Orlando has a good young team that is starting to come together. No need to bring in anyone in a "mentor" role.

Among players who have guarded at least 40 isolation possessions, Keegan Murray has allowed the FEWEST points per possession (0.51)

Opponents are 7/ 43 (16.3%! ) against Keegan in ISO. His vast improvement in on-ball defense, screen navigation, & physicality have been noteworthy.

Was reading a post by Marc Stein stating that the Houston Rockets were interested in Harrison Barnes. I would love to walk away with Jabari Smith Jr, but this probably makes more sense

Sacramento trades Barnes, Mitchell
Sacramento receives Andrew Wiggins + Golden State 2024 second (via Houston)

Golden State trades Andrew Wiggins
Golden State receives Mitchell (1.5 years left on rookie deal), Jeff Green (Next year non-guaranteed), & Victor Oladipo (expiring) .

Houston trades Jeff Green, Victor Olapido + Golden State 2024 Second
Houston receives Harrison Barnes

This move enables Golden States to wipe away all of Andrew Wiggins future salary off the books by not picking up Mitchell's 5th year option.

Why does Sacramento do this? Trading the best player in this trade and taking on Wiggins (who has been terrible this year) and his bad contract.


2.) 17 Jan 2024 19:39:05
@carl. betting on Coach Brown getting Wiggins back to where he was when Coach Brown was an assistant coach at Golden State.

Statistically, I think that Wiggins is actually better than Barnes.

The 7-footer from Finland (Lauri Markkanen) could cost "five-ish [first-round picks] and/ or players of comparable value, " per Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer. That's right in line with what the Jazz received for Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert a couple summers ago.

Well, the Kings are not paying that price tag.

mikefred

Way too high an asking price.


2.) 19 Dec 2023 11:57:23
Depends on the picks/ protections.

Kings trade Davion Mitchell, Harrison Barnes, 2024 second (Kings), 2025 second (Portland)
Kings get Andrew Wiggins.
(Coach Brown tries to revitalize Wiggins into a 3&D wing)

Toronto trades OG Anunoby
Toronto gets Harrison Barnes, Davion Mitchell, 2024 second (Kings), 2025 second (Portland), future 1st (Warriors)
(Toronto gets a young defense minded PG, Veteran Leader + Draft capital for OG)

Golden State trades Andew Wiggins, future 1st round pick
Golder State receives OG Anunoby.
(Golden State plans to resign OG for the money they just gave to Wiggins so they get a younger and better 3&D wing) .

The Sacramento Kings are having such a weird start to their season. They are currently the 6th seed in the West but their splits against teams ahead of them in the standings vs teams below them in the standing is what is so weird.

Against the 5 teams ahead of them (Minn, OKC, Den, Lakers & Dallas), the Kings are 6-0. Teams behind them, the Kings are 5-8 with 7 of those losses against just 3 teams (GS, Houston, & NO) .

This is a crazy season already for Sacramento. Currently 10-6 but has only lost to 3 different teams twice. GSW, Rockets (both on the road without Fox) and Pelicans (both on the road without Murray) .

Sacramento Kings are the new GS warriors. They can win a chip anytime soon, just keep on growing together.


2.) 05 Dec 2023 14:51:42
Pels now 3-0 vs Sac.

Early Season Hot Take

Pacers will be the #3 seed in the East.

Pistons going to make the playoffs.


2.) 29 Oct 2023 23:12:03
Raptors won't finish as a lottery team. I know, scorching hot take. *sobs*.

I think the Suns should get one of those firsts as Durant > inconsistent Davis.

Kings are only interested in doing this if Kuzma is willing to be a 3rd-4th option on this team. There were many reports during the last off season that Kuzma was not interested in getting less touches.

What leverage does Toronto have? Siakam says I will sign to play In Sacramento for whatever cap space or I sign and play in Sacramento at a higher price and Toronto gets Barnes + a 2025 first. So Toronto gets a little something or absolutely nothing.

Teams will keep the roster spot open and sign journeymen once the team starts suffering injuries.
