Who has the worst contract in the NBA today?

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2020 12:02:18
Gordon Hayward
Andrew Wiggins
Al Horford

Not in order.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2020 12:12:58
Wiggons.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2020 12:36:06
Curry. Oh, you mean like a price-to-performance thing? Paul? Wiggins? Harris?

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Dec 2020 13:41:35
Until he plays again and shows he’s not totally broken, it’s Wall. At least the other guys can play.

Griffin is probably second. He has had 1 season in the last 5 that he missed less than 20 games.

Horford rounds out my top 3. He’s now 33, he’s declined, and he hasn’t really been elite for years anyway.

John wall. Russell Westbrook.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Dec 2020 19:31:21
Wall there really no debate. I don’t say Wiggins cause he can at least play every game and stay healthy. He can score just can’t lead to wins and at that time minny thought he was going to be good but he looked better in Golden state.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2020 19:06:50
Excluding Harden and Westbrook, trades on hold until mid-January?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2020 20:52:42
I think you might want to add Lou Williams to that list. I think the Clips want to repair some chemistry by moving on from Lou.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2020 22:34:42
With less than a week until camp and 21 days until games, I can’t see teams making many changes now.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2020 01:42:27
not sure how the clips get anywhere near Lou will's scoring in return on Lou's $8 mil salary.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Dec 2020 03:41:14
Do they absolutely need that much scoring back? They have two stars and multiple guys that are capable 3rd options. Kennard, Morris, zubac and Jackson. They can add a lot of different kinds of players because of their versatility.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2020 07:38:57
When did having too much scoring become a bad thing?

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Nov 2020 16:26:02
This year will be the year the Raptor's show why they are coached so greatly. Everyone will have to prove they belong and deserve the contract they got.


I can see them struggle a little but ultimately playoff top 4 team. 2 or 3rd round exit. If everyone healthy.

Next season will be key.

If they play well as a young core. And if lowry takes less money one year go for it. They might be able to swing for the fences and grab Giannis or kawhi again. But I can see them getting someone like Paul George on a big contract max.

If lowry decides to leave or trade for picks and cap space.

Freddy
George
OG
Siakim
Bayne

Bmiller, would you rather have Simmons or Siakam? And would the package be centered around McCollum or Covington and Nurk?

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2020 16:22:18
I’d struggle with giving up McCollum for either. I don’t think either is good enough to be part of a big 2, they’d need that third star.

Phili wouldn’t have any interest in Nurkic, he wouldn’t fit with Embiid at all. They’d need McCollum, but Portland wouldn’t include him. Seems like that’s where the conversations end unless Phili blows it up. In that case, a consolidation trade around Hood, Jones, Collins, Little, Trent, and picks fits under the cap.

For Toronto, I can’t seem them wanting McCollum right? They have their two undersized guards already. Nurkic fits the style and need. Maybe Nurkic, Hood, and Trent? Or Nurkic and Covington works too. Obviously picks either way too.

For who I’d want, it’s probably Siakam, but it’s close. I’d take the guy that can stretch the floor though. A lineup of Lillard, McCollum, Hood/ Covington, and Siakam is 4 good to great shooters.

Agree2 Disagree2

29 Nov 2020 00:06:53
Condolences on your center position Fredman. I can’t explain how happy I am that Portland took Kanter and Giles over Whiteside.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2020 03:54:43
Yea. But at least we are paying him $20 mil less than Portland did. Whole lot easier to cut if he doesn't pan out.

Agree7 Disagree0

29 Nov 2020 05:35:27
Very true. I was happy with the Leonard and Harkless for Whiteside trade when it happened. I wish they hadn’t done it in retrospect.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 19:13:08
Who's on your most improved players list for this year?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 19:48:01
Do Curry, Durant and Kyrie qualify?

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Nov 2020 19:55:18
Williamson
Bagley
JJJ
SGA
Barrett
Ayton.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 21:08:13
Lonzo, MPJ, Bagley.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 23:21:00
Barrett, Lonzo, MPJ, Hachimura.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 23:49:14
I see Barrett Bagley SGA and Garland as a sleeper.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2020 14:12:52
Anunoby, MPJ, Herro?

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Nov 2020 16:28:17
Slight cheat, but I’ll throw another option: someone from OKC. They have two guys that averaged 10+ last year. Someone has to fill the void left by trading 3 18+ ppg scorers. Between Dort, Bazley, Leaf, Diallo, Jerome, and Jackson, one of those guys will add 5-10 or more ppg to their career high. That team could have the MIP out of necessity and opportunity.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Nov 2020 17:13:40
Agree, Bmiller.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2020 17:41:48
Was my exact reasoning for picking SGA. Figured the new leader of that group had the best chance.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Nov 2020 18:56:25
True, but how much past 19/ 6/ 3 would he have to jump to get MIP? Not sure I see him as a 25-30 ppg scorer, though maybe with the lack of scoring on that team.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2020 21:52:22
I could see him getting like the Knicks Carmelo Anthony on that talent lacking roster. Not guaranteeing it, but if that happens it would be MIP worthy. Or maybe averaging a triple-double like Westbrook?

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Nov 2020 01:45:12
I can see him hitting 25/ 7/ 7.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2020 02:00:53
I could see Bazley jump up to average 20 ppg for sure at least 15. He showed in the bubble he can score and the team will have plenty of scoring opportunities for him to take.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Dec 2020 202:48:24
Anunoby big time. I see him developing as a 3&D specialist, averaging 15 and 8 and maybe even 40% from 3.

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Dec 2020 23:47:43
Why did that last one post so late?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 16:42:44
Do y know what "ringring" means?

Simply all the five and more rings Luca and Giannis will win.

Will Giannis stay at Bucks to win nothing? Or will he join aging Warries or Lakers to become the 2nd or 3rd fiddle of a championsteam?

Neither nor never no.

He will start to win at Dallas with Luka and Porzingis, Richardson and all the gang.

CU y in two years, when you will honor our championship.

Buckets: Trade exception, 2nd pic
Mavs: Giannis

Agree2 Disagree5

28 Nov 2020 18:04:02
Why does this whole thing remind me of shizzee celebrating that the Knicks were going to sign Kyrie and Durant as free agents?

You still got work to do, "ring". At this moment, Dallas has around the necessary $39 mil (35% of $112 salary cap) to sign Giannis. However, Josh Green's guaranteed contract ($3 mil) has yet to be added against that number as well as Josh Richardson's possible opt in at $11 mil. So it is conceivable that Dallas will have to do an S&T which will cut Giannis salary for trade purposes in half ($20 mil) which Dallas has the cap space to do. But is a mid-second rounder enough of inventive for Milwaukee to agree to it? I don't think so. Probably going to have to cough up Green and Terry at a minimum.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Nov 2020 19:04:46
Going to need to get rid of Powell’s contract.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Nov 2020 19:43:30
@NBA16. That is a possibility. But it is not a walk in the park to dump 2 yrs/ $22+ ($16 guaranteed) mil with no tradeable first round pick in the foreseeable future to attach to it and not take back any salary in the trade.

Agree1 Disagree1

29 Nov 2020 14:14:51
Powell kleber and Wright plus 2025 and 2027 first for Drummond.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Nov 2020 14:16:27
They have there 2025 and 2027 first they can easily trade Powell kleber and Wright at deadline for a big expiring contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Nov 2020 17:56:14
Technically, they do not have their 2025 pick available in trade because of the trade protections on the 2023 pick which run to 2025. They do have their 2027 pick available for trade right now. But who is willing to wait 6 years to get paid off on a trade?

Also, Wright has already been traded so Detroit.

I think you would do better trying to trade Richardson and a second for a expiring deal so you don't have to worry about him opting in.

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Nov 2020 01:45:42
Can use Brunson or Terry.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Nov 2020 08:26:29
I keep Richardson and trade Powell and kiebler. Take the protection off the 2023 first and trade 2025 first to knicks along with those two for cap relief and teams will wait 6years for picks especially if they have nothing.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Nov 2020 20:54:58
You are assuming that no other teams are offering more recent picks for the same cap space. Why take a 2025 first when I can get a 2022 first from another team looking to dump salary?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2020 17:22:41

Agree4 Disagree0

27 Nov 2020 17:48:03
See? Undervaluing Raptors. I have them above Sixers and maybe Heat.

Agree0 Disagree3

27 Nov 2020 17:56:41
Bulls are more likely to be 14th in the East than Orlando is. I would switch those 2.

Agree0 Disagree2

27 Nov 2020 19:10:37
Rockets are a bit too high. So are Warriors.

Agree0 Disagree2

27 Nov 2020 21:51:57
Darry stop whining about your Raptors. That's just his opinion, post yours.

Agree1 Disagree0

27 Nov 2020 21:54:59
Utah is going to make the playoffs and Memphis could be the surprise team.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Nov 2020 22:28:24
76ers are better than Raptors this year Darry. Who’s going to guard Embiid?

If any team is being slept on it’s the Warriors, apparently no one thinks they’re a top 5 West team anymore.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 02:20:18
Magic lost no starters added a decent pair of rookies and lose 5 spots?

Agree2 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 04:42:13
I just see them being sellers at deadline.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 12:58:35
Baynes is good as Gasol at guarding bigs like Embiid. The duo of Simmons-Embiid still won't work bc neither of them can shoot well. Anunoby is the perfect defender for most 1st options like Butler and Tatum.

I have:
Bucks
Celtics
Nets
Heat/ Raptors
Raptors/ Heat
6ers
Pacers
Hawks
Magic
The rest in some order.

Agree0 Disagree3

28 Nov 2020 14:45:37
I undervalue raptors but you only have them 1/ 2 spots ahead of what I did? Don’t make sense. You really think Baynes is going to stop Embiid.

Agree3 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 18:07:31
@NBA16, you are actually the one following the "barring any injuries" guideline when it comes to Embiid (and the 6ers) .

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 19:06:32
He’s played 75%+ regular season games past 3 years.

Agree1 Disagree0

28 Nov 2020 19:46:20
got it. But I think Darry is letting in a little "injury bias" when it comes to the 6ers.

Agree0 Disagree0
