    Jesus Christ. Fire Griff into the sun if that happens.
    Fire him into the sun for trading Lonzo for Satoransky and Temple instead of Markkanen. All time fumble.

    Haha. Take a walk through that thread leading up to it. Laurie may have been more hated here than BI currently is.
    BI, Zion, and CJ had a net rating of +3 when on the court together. BI and Zion had a +13.4, BI and CJ had a +13.2, Zion and CJ was just +5.4.

    BI and Zion worked. BI and CJ worked. It was CJ and Zion and all three together that didn't work.

    I honestly think this would be a worse move in some ways.

    Markkannen had some qualities then but he had yet to break out. While some people speculated there was unlockable upside, basically nobody really expected him to explode the way he has.

    By comparison, it didn't take a genius to know that BI's value was higher with 2 years on his deal than with 1, or to know what the rules of the salary cap are. It goes up, but not by enough to overcome the problems that that kind of extension would provide.
    Basketball.

    What does Trey do good besides shooting wide open shots ?

    I'd be fine moving Trey or CJ if they can't get good value for Ingram and decide to resign him.

    Dejounte Murray very good trade but...

    What are we doing? We don't have a decent center in the team (and we need two, not even one starter) and Missi... who knows is a rookie, the centers in the FA are almost gone and we only have an option of a trade, TM3 or BI with picks.

    The thing is... we will get a decent C and be a better team in exchange of BI and TM3? I have my doubts, honestly I think that's not possible.
    Only for picks? Maybe then we could be a better team. Picks for... Kessler? WCJ? I think Utah or Orlando wouldn't accept that and maybe is too much for them.


    And we need rotation, key players with minutes like Larry, JV, Naji and Dyson were gone...

    The rookie already weigh 230 and is about 611 and very athletic I wouldn’t be surprised for him to get a lot of run because his job for the most part will be pretty simple crash the board be a deterrent on defense catch a lob here and there sit in the dunker spot

    if we want a big to space the floor for all the we need to extend Trey Murphy talk he better get his 6’10 behind out there and grab some boards and lock up it ain’t like he facing embiid jokic sabonis and ad every night

    It is early July. Season is months away.

    Season may be months away but, let's be fair, we all know things are vastly more likely to happen in the FA period than later.

    Yes, the Donovan Mitchell trade happened in September but the reason that was so shocking was that it's an outlier.

    Generally speaking, this is when things get done. There's always an outside chance of a move later in the summer but it's a pretty reasonable assumption to think that the big moves are over in the first two weeks of July.

    As expected.

    Have we tried Phoenix yet? Didn’t CJ enjoy his workout with Durant?

    Good to see Lebron killed any chance of Ingram or big Free agent next 2 years.

    How long before he has Bronny traded away? Lol

    Or better yet, who gets shown the door first? Bronny or JJ?

    Dame was traded like two weeks before training camp opened, Harden a couple weeks into the season...maybe there's a trend.
