Kyrie and Simmons controversy.. One guy doesn't want to play with his team and another one who cannot play because of vax policy..

If ever these two teams decide to swap their players.. I don't think Sixers would give more pieces for Irving especially if he "possibly" retire after the trade..

Can the Sixers make an agreement if ever Kyrie decides to retire, the draft picks would return back to philly and Nets pays them with a 1st rd pick and some cash??

I wish I could sit around and not do much for 30+mil a year.

13 Oct 2021 16:10:49
@NBA16. Just ask John Wall and his $40 mil.

Orlando Magic situation

Will Magic trade or Buyout Gary Harris ? By Trade Deadline because he is expiring

Agree0 Disagree5

13 Oct 2021 02:47:15
Let him expire prolly unless they take a bad contract with a pick.

11 Oct 2021 10:02:59
BMiller, can Dame Time have an Off Night tonight?

Agree0 Disagree5

11 Oct 2021 15:28:42
He’s sitting. So are CJ and Norm. But the last time Simons started against the Kings, he went for 37. Hoping for another of those.

11 Oct 2021 17:06:54
Making chicken sounds in the background.

11 Oct 2021 17:18:36
Or are Portland sitting starters so that the Kings are not "comfortable" playing against them for Opening Night.

11 Oct 2021 20:45:53
lol, yeah, now Covington is out. Seems like it’ll be Simons, Elleby, Nance, Nurkic, and not much else. Greg Brown maybe gets big minutes? (I’m optimistic he’ll be good in a year or two) .

12 Oct 2021 13:37:59
I'll take six 3-pointers from Davion Mitchell any day of the week.

12 Oct 2021 16:14:28
Yeah, he looks really good. People always shy away from drafting the older prospects, but they come in so much better.

12 Oct 2021 16:55:16
Yea, who was the guy here saying Mitchell wasn't a top 10 pick?

12 Oct 2021 23:25:17
Might have been me? IDK.

13 Oct 2021 01:05:31
I think it started with a N and ended with a 6.

Mitchell is also 10 for 16 from 3 during the preseason. If he shoots 40% from 3, averages 15 pts per game and Kings are a playoff team because improved defense. Would that make Mitchell the fromt runner for ROY?

13 Oct 2021 02:45:25
Main competition would be Cunningham, Green and Barnes. Mitchell has a great chance of getting all rookie 1st team if he plays like this in regular season. Nobody knows, we'll see. I hope Kings contend for playoffs.

13 Oct 2021 02:49:02
I said Mitchell wouldn’t be star. Shizzee compared him to CP3 which is a horrible comparison. I think Mitchell will be a good player but I don’t think he’s a future all star (which is what you want in the top 10)

13 Oct 2021 17:33:16
Don’t forget Suggs who will start unlike Mitchell.

13 Oct 2021 19:49:09
I think starting right now Suggs is already behind Mitchell based on Summer League and Preseason. Mitchell may not start, but I don't see him getting less than 25 minutes a night (Haliburton averaged 30 minutes off the bench last season, 40% from 3 and 13pts per game) . Mitchell will mostly be against backups while Suggs has to deal with starters for a majority of his minutes. Then toss in which team is most likely to win 40 games and which team is most likely to win 20 games.

The only rookie right now I have ahead of Mitchell is Green.

13 Oct 2021 22:12:18
Suggs and Cade will have more usage than Mitchell. Cade is the primary ball handler and top 2 option on Pistons. You can argue Suggs will be the top option on magic by middle/ end of the year.

14 Oct 2021 01:57:21
You're looking at usage. I am looking at FG% during summer league and preseason. Neither Cade or Suggs is shooting "lights out" and will probably drop more facing NBA starters.

14 Oct 2021 05:16:13
Lol no one wins ROY based on fg%, mostly due to numbers. Cade will put up lots up stats, Suggs has the opportunity too as well. It’s preseason. Mitchell is the 4th guard on the Kings. Cade and Suggs are the centerpieces of their teams right out the gate.

10 Oct 2021 12:56:34
what's the most likely that could happen?

1) Cunningham is a bust
2)Duarte wins MVR
3)The Bulls become a contender
4)The Lakers miss the playoffs
5)Lonzo Ball makes the all star team
6)B Simmons makes an all NBA team
7)Toppin has a break out year
8)Indy takes the first seat in the East
9) Irving gets traded

Agree7 Disagree0

10 Oct 2021 13:25:22
Simmons, bulls, lonzo.

10 Oct 2021 13:56:26
8 and 9 are the only ones that would shock me.

Rookies being break outs or busts shouldn’t surprise anyone.

The Bulls are incredibly talented. Especially if Ball becomes an all star.

The Lakers are old and injury prone. And they almost missed the playoffs last season.

Ben’s still been an all star the last 3 years.

As y can see, the Wiz team will be not hopping over the top and stay midlevel - time to focus on their young core and get some nice additions from Texas - after that Wiz will be still a team in the mid field but Mavs will be contender:

WIZ M.Brown, THJ, Green, Brunson, 2x1st, 2x2nd
DAL Harrell (TE), Beal

Agree0 Disagree9

09 Oct 2021 12:27:43
Seams to be done before chrismas:

PHI Brogdon, THJ
IND Simmons, Aminu
DAL Turner, Beal
WIZ M.Bowen, Young, Thybulle, Green, Brunson, 2x1st Mavs
SAN Powell, Burke, Terry, 2nd Mavs

Win, win - ring, ring

Agree0 Disagree11

09 Oct 2021 14:19:10
Did you just wingwing that trade, doesn't take the stingsting out of the fact that Luka ain't ever going to winwin a ringring.

09 Oct 2021 15:33:56
Mavs could go over the luxury and hence Wiz would save 30m - maybe they do, and they could add Dragic after buyout - because they will win the thing multiple times in a row:

PHI Brogdon, THJ
IND Simmons, Young
DAL Turner, Beal, Aminu (TE)
WIZ M. Brown, Thybulle, Green, Brunson, 2x1st Mavs
SAN Powell, Burke, Terry, 2nd Mavs

Turner, WCS - Boban
KP, Maxi
DFS, Aminu - Brown
Beal, Bullock
Luca, Goran - Frank.

10 Oct 2021 02:31:42
You have one asset. Doncic. That’s it.

Philadelphia 76ers Situation

Owner need to think about firing Daryl Morey

Portland Trail-Blazers rejected offer

Daryl Morey asked for CJ McCollum three first round picks & three first round picks swap

Philly Fans going to run Daryl Morey outta Pennsylvania

These asking price is ridiculous

Fire Daryl Morey!!

Agree0 Disagree8

08 Oct 2021 20:48:39
I’ve mentioned that this situation could cost Morey and Brand their jobs and people have laughed at me. But if Simmons sits all season and Philly ends up in the play in, then either bounced in that or swept by Brooklyn or Milwaukee? Morey could be fired.

At this point, Olshey and Morey seem like they’re just posturing. Olshey wants a straight swap, Morey wants 3 picks and 3 swaps. It’ll end up with McCollum and a first for Simmons.

08 Oct 2021 22:10:14
I don't think i's fair to blame this situation on Morey. He went out and got Seth Curry (and to a lesser extent Danny Green) to spread the floor for Embiid/ Simmons. It worked wonders for them last year as they were the first seed in the east. Not really his fault that Simmons had a playoff meltdown and now wants to get traded because his coaches/ teammates were rightfully pissed. I also can't blame him for trying to get the best package possible for Simmons; it's his job to do that. Are his demands unrealistic? Sure. Is he wrong for asking for a lot? Not at all. He has dragged this thing out longer than anyone would like, but if waiting ends up getting him the best package possible then who could blame him?

09 Oct 2021 01:36:55
If he gets a better package, he’s fine. But does anyone actually see that happening? Beal or Lillard isn’t happening. It’s just not.

Fair or not, it’s Morey’s decision. And thus far, he seems to have failed the situation. If his inaction wastes a season of Embiid’s prime, the blame could hit him hard.

09 Oct 2021 04:09:17
Wasting a season of Embiid’s prime is a good point. If Morey somehow let’s the trade deadline pass without having traded Simmons and he’s still holding out, then that’s a fireable offense. I have to believe that he’ll get something done before then though. At this point it might be their best move to see what happens in the first couple months of the regular season. Maybe something goes horribly wrong in Portland or DC and Dame/ Beal become available. Or perhaps another team is better than expected and decides to make a serious push. Ben’s value can’t really drop with him not playing. It’s safe to say that a lot is riding on this trade for Morey, but I don’t think he should be the scapegoat just yet.

12 Oct 2021 15:06:32
I think Simmons for McCollum plus 1st pick is enough but Morey's price is too high. Maybe make it a 1st pick, a 2nd rd pick and a swap pick.

Orlando Magic situation

I'm disappointed as Magic

Suggs and F Wagner playing like a Bust

Ik it's pre season come on

Agree0 Disagree10

The game I saw them against Boston I thought they did fine for their first NBA action.
