Here is the part of the love for Brogdon that I do not understand. If you go to ESPNs trade machine and you put in a straight up trade of Brogdon for Harrison Barnes. Hollinger's analysis projects that Indy would win total would increase by 6 games.

Now understand that projected win totals are computed by the traded player's PER over the PER of the replacement player. Barrnes PER is Brissett's PER while Brodgon's PER is about even with Fox's PER.

Another thing to note is that PER computations do not take into consideration the number of games missed. Perhaps multiplying Brogdon's PER by the 44% of games that Brogdon played would be more accurate quantification of Brogdon's "value".

I don't trust trade machine win plus/ minus. Evaluate it by your own common sense.

Also, I recommend Fanspo over ESPN's trade machine.

02 Jun 2022 20:42:38
Well according to fanspro a straight up Barnes (to IND) -Collins (to SAC) -Brogdon (to ATL) is practically a perfect match.

02 Jun 2022 23:45:16
Like I said, use your own instinct. I only prefer Fanspo to ESPN due to its ability to include picks and do some free agent stuff.

02 Jun 2022 23:46:09
I wouldn’t go off an any trade machine, Bc 1. They don’t consider age and 2. They don’t consider positions/ or fits.

How would Hawks stay the same adding another SG/ PG and having a massive hole at PF.

04 Jun 2022 17:31:40
Hole at PF? Gallinari, Hunter, Okonguw, Jalen Johnson.

What if Sixers go for a rebuild?

What are they getting for Embiid?

Agree0 Disagree0

30 May 2022 19:32:11
Ben Simmons.

30 May 2022 21:24:20

31 May 2022 00:52:17
How about all the other "Process" era players that have thrived or been important role players since leaving?

Jerami Grant
Christian Wood
Robert Covington
TJ McConnell
Javale McGee
Nerlens Noel
Mikal Bridges (traded on draft night for Zhaire Smith. Whomp whomp)

Throw in Fultz and Simmons just for kicks.

31 May 2022 22:52:46
Ayton and Bridges.

02 Jun 2022 09:35:30
philly traded away all their picks, i don't think they can trade Embiid

I like NBA16 proposal. Ayton and Bridges is a good return.

02 Jun 2022 18:40:23
Sixers get: Vucevic, (exp) Pat Williams, Coby White (exp) and Alex Caruso

Bulls get: Joel Embiid.

Boston vs Golden State

I want GS to win. But Boston's suffocating defense would be nightmare for them, i want to see how Poole and Wiggins perform. Kerr should not allow any "off night" from Klay. It's time for Steph to win a finals MVP.

Keys to the series:

-Who is the better menace, Green or Smart
-Wiggins offense is needed as Boston's defense would probably focus on the splash trio
-Tatum / Brown should limit their turnovers and must be smart in their shot selection
-Kerr must outcoach Ime
-Al Horford's desire to win a chip will be a big x-factor for sure
-Health (both sides)

Interesting series between probably the best offense and best defense in the league.

A month ago I would have picked Boston. They match up well and have given GS trouble the last few years. They're capable but I wonder what they have left in the tank. Horford may have hit the wall and Rob Williams can barely get up the court. I'm not counting them out and it should at least be an entertaining series.

30 May 2022 17:51:54
Klay will need to bring his A game on defense as well. If Rob Williams plays and C’s go big, he will have to guard Brown as well. Curry could have a hard time with Smart on him 24/ 7.

30 May 2022 03:09:28
Miami just gave up on that game

Agree0 Disagree1

Raps fans. if KD asks out would y'all consider a deal

Around Siakam and OG/Trent?


Agree1 Disagree1

28 May 2022 14:34:05
I actually might.

31 May 2022 18:08:18
KD is one of very few players I would be willing to trade Siakam for.

27 May 2022 19:37:49
In this Ayton situation I bet the Suns wish they would've kept Jalen Smith. Still can't believe they let him go for Torrey Craig lol.

With the Pacers he averaged 13.4/7.5 and a block on 53% from the floor and 37% from 3 in 24 MPG. Huge steal for Pacers and they should definitely resign him.

He was given an opportunity in Indy that he would never had gotten in Phoenix. Especially with all the injuries INndy has last season.

27 May 2022 20:22:05
The mistake wasn't trading him for Craig, it was not picking up his option. Once that happened they no longer had his rights and he was a goner. Indy has the same issue, they have no financial advantage over anyone else in signing him.

27 May 2022 20:36:10
Yep, what Nightcap said. Declining his option was a bad move and forced them to trade him for very little value. Zero bird rights and an expiring contract for him kills any value.

27 May 2022 21:42:44
Indy can't sign him for more than he would have earned on the team option if it were accepted. Something like $4.6 million. After how he played the last few months I'm sure at least a handful of teams will offer more than that to a long, young big who can rebound, finish around the rim, and step outside.

An older Khem Birch put up similar numbers (12/ 7.5/ 1.2 blocks/ 56 from the floor) after the Raptors picked him up at the end of last season, and he managed to land just under $6.5 million a year.

I can't imagine Smith passing that up unless he REALLY wants to stay in Indiana. He would have to sign short term for less and hope his play doesn't crater over the next couple of years. Not the smartest financial move if you ask me.

28 May 2022 07:41:49
I would love for my Grizz to offer even more than that. I’d take him for 8-10 mil a year. Could definitely replace Adams and be our future front court partner with JJJ.

27 May 2022 16:55:18
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Portland is hiring his colleague, NBA Draft analyst Mike Schmitz, as an assistant general manager.

"Schmitz will play a significant role with new GM Joe Cronin in leading the Blazers’ domestic and international scouting departments, " Wojnarowski tweeted Thursday night.

Guess Portland is getting ready for the draft.

Again, it's BOS over GS in 6. Mm change it to BOS in 7

Agree0 Disagree2

26 May 2022 22:10:05
I favor Warriors in the series.

26 May 2022 23:37:27
I got the Warriors in 6 assuming it’s those two in the Finals.

27 May 2022 01:41:46
Smarten up.

Just kidding.
