If Thunder trade Westbrook to Heat do the thunder package 1 or both of the Heats 1st to get rid of Adams/Schroder or just ride it out with them? Westbrook to Heat will put them picks into the 20's. Trading Schredor and Adams could help Okc get into the top 5/10 in upcoming drafts with their own picks.

Agree16 Disagree0

10 Jul 2019 13:33:20
Only having scheider and Adam's gets them in top 10.

10 Jul 2019 15:01:55
Starting Schroder seems like a surefire way to the worst possible record. He also seems like a surefire way to undercut any improvement of youth, so they should only start him the one year.

10 Jul 2019 18:11:29
They also have SGA and Gallo alongside them.

11 Jul 2019 03:38:24
NBA they are in the west 35 wins top.

10 Jul 2019 00:17:53
Lakers starting lineup

Avery Bradley/ Rajon Rondo
Danny Green/ Caldwell Pope
LeBron James/ Jared Dudley
Anthony Davis/ Kyle Kuzma
Javale McGee/ DeMarcus Cousins.

Agree4 Disagree14

10 Jul 2019 02:33:18
I sure hope we can land Iggy.

10 Jul 2019 03:57:07
Weak guards, defense and other than kuz old.

10 Jul 2019 06:08:18
AD is young.

09 Jul 2019 20:31:35
Imo these are the two lineups the Lakes should pick between



- Kuzma shouldn't play the 3 so him or Cousins needs to come off the bench. I also would mind if they started Cook at PG w Lebron

Agree15 Disagree1

09 Jul 2019 21:34:13
Seems like Lebron, Bradley, Green, Kuzma, Davis is the best option.

I don't believe in Cousins, he's broken and not coming back, especially defensively (which he's always been suspect at best) .

09 Jul 2019 22:34:58
Bradley/ Rondo
Green/ Cook/ Daniels
Lebron/ Kcp
Kuzma/ (Iggy? ) / Dudley
Davis/ Cousins.

10 Jul 2019 03:57:51
So no rebounding and only davis guarding rim.

10 Jul 2019 06:09:36
AD can get 10-15, Bron can get 7-10, Kuz can get 5.

10 Jul 2019 15:09:33
Davis is a top 10 league rebounder, Lebron is top 30. That seems like enough rebounding. Not a top 5 rebounding team, but not bottom 10 either.

How many teams have more than one rim protector on the court at a time these days? Seems pretty standard. Starting Cousins doesn't add another rim protector, he's a horrible defender.

Also, that's two good wing defenders plus Lebron. It's not like you're starting Isaiah Thomas.

08 Jul 2019 20:29:21
Happy lakers got Bradley who I really wanted if missed out on leonard.

Agree14 Disagree2

08 Jul 2019 20:04:29
Apparently Lebron will start at PG next season. If so Lakers definitely need more forward and big man depth if they play Kuz at the 3

Agree3 Disagree12

08 Jul 2019 20:21:53
Man, I would still run that team.

08 Jul 2019 21:49:56
If Kuzma plays the 3, they’re screwed. The guy gets burnt by pfs. He can’t guard a sf.

08 Jul 2019 21:52:12
Who is the SF coming off the bench? KCP?

How are they going to keep up with young fast playing teams? McGee is their only "speedy" big.

08 Jul 2019 23:12:35
@rkenne, I actually thinks its worse. Green defending opposing PGs, Kuzma guarding SGs, and Lebron guarding SFs. That is why I am saying opponents need to run this team. Pick and roll Boogie to death.

09 Jul 2019 00:57:02
LAL is a weak team for you. I’m okay with that :-) we cannot beat the young Sacramento Kings.

09 Jul 2019 02:17:44
I think with the Bradley addition, he starts and guards pgs, Green on the best wing and then Davis on the best big.

09 Jul 2019 03:45:38
Rkeene. Green can't play 30 minutes a night.

09 Jul 2019 07:37:28
I hope i'm wrong, i would like to see a great LA rivality.
But i don't think LA is going to make te playoffs.
They can't keep up with young teams like Portland, Sacramento, Denver, Dallas and even NO.

09 Jul 2019 14:50:13
Because of the depth and youth in the West, not sure how many load management days for Davis, Cousins and Lebron are going to still be wins.

08 Jul 2019 16:29:17
Soooo. How is RJ Barrett doing in the Summer League? LOL!

Agree11 Disagree1

08 Jul 2019 16:41:24
Lonzo lit up SL and couldn't do rubbish as rookie outside 10 feet. Its early. Btw knicks don't have but 30 wins so it's ok.

08 Jul 2019 21:51:50
Shizzee is in a straight jacket some where talking about Zion and KD winning the Knicks a champ ship.

08 Jul 2019 21:53:44
Odds Barrett shoots less than 40% from the field for the season?

09 Jul 2019 03:46:24
Fredman if he shoots 43% and can't guard he is second in rookie of the year like trae.

09 Jul 2019 04:06:17
So you basically saying he can be Wiggins and get the ROY. That is a poor commentary on this rookie clss then.

09 Jul 2019 17:18:57
Fredman roy is meaningless. MCW won one did nothing else.

09 Jul 2019 21:41:24
Eh, an inefficient scoring machine is probably pretty par for the course for ROY in most years. You just hope they learn how to become efficient as they mature.

18 and 5 wins ROY most years. That's what Wiggins averaged last year. If Wiggins did what he did last year as a rookie, I'd say he has superstar potential so long as he learns some control, efficiency, and defense. After year 5, that ship has sailed.

08 Jul 2019 15:42:20
Denver gets Grant for their 2020 1st. That seems like a steal.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jul 2019 16:25:25
I like it for both. Denver is clearly win now, and making moves like it. OKC cashes in a nice role player for a future first, as a tanking team should.

This clearly send the message that Westbrook (and Gallo) are going to be moved I think.

08 Jul 2019 16:28:29
Backup/ Small ball 4 for a late 1st? I guess so. Also uses a trade exception that expires at the trade deadline. Probably a move made because of Porter Jr's injury?

08 Jul 2019 17:23:23
Thunder mainly did it to save over 30mil in luxury tax, but yea a low 1st round pick os a steal in my opinion. I feel like OKC should have gotten a 2nd out of it too.

08 Jul 2019 19:39:35
@rlc35 grant ain't all that. Be grateful someone gave you a first while saving OKC $30 mil.

08 Jul 2019 02:21:53
I just found the silver lining in the PG13 trade that most OKC fans probably missed. The odds of OKC keeping their 2020 (and 2022) first round picks just increased because its top 20 protected.

Agree10 Disagree0

08 Jul 2019 15:20:41
Yea if they pull off a good return for Russ they will have plenty of 1st round picks and some young talent to make this rebuild easier. They will have a lot of chances to strike gold in upcoming drafts. hopefully Presti does good with them.

08 Jul 2019 16:32:18
Trying to remember who told me that the Thunder were a lock for the playoffs and I was crazy for suggesting the Kings may beat the Thunder out of the 8th seed.

08 Jul 2019 16:36:43
Oh yea. It was usa, of course.

08 Jul 2019 17:46:50
Kings, dallas,

Kings aren't in for sure.

08 Jul 2019 18:43:47
Most sites have the Kings over the Spurs. Young players continue to develop and new FAs provide much needed depth at key positions. Spurs rookies will spend a majority of their time in the G-league per Coach Pop's Standard Operating Procedures. Depends how Murray and Walker perform coming off their injuries.

08 Jul 2019 20:22:30
No GS in there? Curry, Russell, and Green should be a playoff team, especially if Klay comes back with 20+ games left.

The top 6 of Shiller's list feels like the top 6. Then SA, Sac, GS, (maybe Dallas and Minny) battle for the last two. I'd bet GS gets one of those two.

08 Jul 2019 23:16:13
Lots a question marks with GS. Hsrd to get a feel for team chemistry, games missed for load management, lack of bench depth, etc.

09 Jul 2019 00:07:29
Fredman to be fair to usa no one saw the PG trade to Clippers. i'm sure he meant with Russ and PG they were a lock for playoffs. Obviously unexpected things have chamged that.

09 Jul 2019 04:14:02
I wouldn't say that its "unexpected". Everyone knew sonething had to give at OKC. Fans were just hoping that it was just Adams on the move. Presti was smart and got the most anyone could get for PG13. Accepting that package just says its time to tear it all down.

08 Jul 2019 00:17:54
Spurs need to package White and Walker for another big



Or should they move Aldridge to center and use them to trade for a combo forward?


Agree9 Disagree1

08 Jul 2019 01:33:38
I posted this before they signed Marcus Morris.

08 Jul 2019 02:18:44
And Bertains was traded for Carroll.

07 Jul 2019 20:14:33
What player has the best chance becoming the MIP next year?

1)J Winslow
2)M Bridges
3)M Monk
4)L ball
5)C Osman
6)M bagley
7)M brogon
8)Someone else...

Agree7 Disagree0

07 Jul 2019 20:27:15

07 Jul 2019 21:18:22
2nd year guys never win. It’s almost impossible. Brogdon is to good to win it probably. Monk seems like a guy closer to being out of the league than winning mip.

I’d go Winslow 1st. He seems to have found his role.

I’ll go Cedi 2nd. If he puts it all together, he can be really good.

Lonzo doesn’t seem like a guy that is going to put up the counting stats to win it.

Other is probably the best though.

07 Jul 2019 22:22:58
If Lonzo starts and can get to 15/ 10/ 5, I would say he has a punchers chance at it.

Although Tatum will get some votes if he goes 20/ 7/ 3.

Porzingis coming back from his knee injury?

Looney picks it up for GS?

Rozier in Charlotte would probably be my dark horse.

08 Jul 2019 09:26:34
Tatum and Looney have a chance indeed.

Rozier is a realy dark horse :-)

08 Jul 2019 15:38:12
Lonzo. If he shoots 45% fg, 35% from 3pt his numbers will be 15- 7- 6.

08 Jul 2019 15:43:23
Without Russ and PG i could see Adams or Grant if one of them stay at OKC and don't get traded. Adams will get several more boards without Russ last year he averaged 4.9 OR and 4.6 DR his defensive rebounding will improve without Russ. And if he could end up scoreing 20+ points without Russ and PG taking all the shots and become a 20pt 10+reb type of guy he could be in the running. If you look at Grants stats Grant has improved every year he has been with OKC. he is super athletic and 6-9 anytime you have an athletic player that is 6-9 they could develop creating their own shot or something and improve a lot. Same theory as Adams without Russ and PG Grant could step up and greatly improve.
