If he would accept a 6th man bench role and play the 5 with Zion at the 4 in small ball lineups then I pay the man. The West is going to be wide open next year. If the Pels do it right I can see us legitly making it to the WC Finals.

    Julius was pretty much Tyree Evans at PF. So much offensive game, but needed the ball in his hands to be a positive on the court and just didn't have defense as a priority. I'm not trying to be rude but he doesn't play winning basketball. I'm happy to here he is having other dope opportunities for him.

    Your not being rude.
    Why anyone would want Randle on this team after getting Zion is just head scratching to me.
    With or without Davis.

    Move Randle to different position. I believe it was done was Davis and Cousins.

    He played with Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis, and didn’t sniff the playoffs. Don’t get ahead of yourself.

    Correct!

    Holiday got injured, Davis quit in December.

    Not to mention that Griffin has said many time times that they are after high character guys, two way players and intelligent players.
    Randle only fits one of those criteria.

    You could say the same for Stephen Curry too

    High character and intelligent? Like JR Smith?

    Yep he has learn't from his mistakes.

    Randle was not that bad stats wise. Both Lakers and Magic acknowledge it was a mistake kicking Randle to the curb. It did come up on First Take the other day.

    Eric Bledsoe made 1st team defense. Yeah let that sink in.

    Incredibly disrespectful to Jrue.

    Him on the bench and in certain rotations with zion and Davis would be pretty good actually. We just would need our one and two to play defense and be able to catch and shoot in the starting lineup. He would be dominant off the bench. Weíll just see what kind of money he commands. If he doesnít go for a pay day, he could be a solid signing. He has great passing ability but never got to show it last year because he was forced to become the main scorer. Check out some highlights of him. He has the vision and ability to be a playmaker.

    Playing Devil's advocate, Jrue only played 67 games and we stank. Hell Kawhi couldn't even make first team. 2nd team isn't the worst result in the world

    Anthony Davis in 2016-17 and Jrue Holiday this year are the only two players to make an all-defensive team without also making the playoffs in the last 10 years.

    So we understand that. But it still rankles to see Holiday get ranked behind Bledsoe, who is clearly inferior to him on D.
    Zion ''The Earthquake'' Williamson

    Paying attention to the next draft too early.

    I know it's not quite a free agent, but I may as well post contract extension news in here rather than just starting a new thread for a relatively minor thing.

    Giannis gonna get paid FIFTY. SIX. MILLION. DOLLARS. For a single year.

    Edit: I don't really know what's the case in the US, but $56m is £44.2m. UK minimum wage is £8.21 per hour. Average minimum wage worker would have to work 5.383 million hours to earn that wage. Assuming a 50 hour work week, no days or weeks off, 107673 weeks. Or 2070 years. NBA money is truly absurd sometimes. Makes it even more absurd when you remember how rich the owners are.

    Also, if Rudy Gobert wins DPOY this year, he'll be eligible for a supermax contract.

    If Utah give him that, that will instantly be one of the worst contracts in the league.

    This isn't news, there have been open talks about this for a week or two, but it's confirmed. FA deadline moves forward a few hours, which for me puts it in the middle of the night rather than early morning.
