    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    I've seen this from a few people, but I couldn't disagree more. He has almost no chance to be great, and little chance to be really good. He's an exceptionally poor offensive player, he can't shoot at all, on any level, he draws no fouls, and he can't shoot FTs, so he's someone you straight up...

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    Couple people on twitter with LA connections saying that there is a handshake deal that they will delay it if the Lakers have a deal in place for a Max free agent before 7/6. Makes sense. Basically... if you have a deal we'll wait, but we won't wait if you don't have something concrete in hand.

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    Yeah, you're right. I was looking at the questions earlier about a Kyrie/DLo swap and forgot it was both teams on that because both were getting S&T players. If the Nets sent back just draft picks it wouldn't hard cap the Celtics. Still doesn't make much sense, but the hard cap issue isn't there.

    Offseason Thread - Betty when you call me, you can call me Al

    I don't see a trade that works, but I think he's a great player. He's one of the best defenders in the league, he's a very good rim protector (20th in BLK rate last year, 3rd the year before), he's an amazing finisher at the rim as the roll man, maybe the best in the league. He doesn't stretch...

    He's a dick, but I don't know about knowing more or experiencing more. He was a World Cup star, played in Serie A, was the GM/President for multiple MLS clubs... he has a ton of varied high level experience in American and International soccer.

    For those wondering how good Chile is, they are currently ranked 2 spots behind Thailand in the rankings. they're probably a slightly better team than Thailand, but both are basically amateur teams. USWNT won't play anybody with a chance of keeping it close until Sweden (who amusingly are...

    Griffin squeezing something else out of Pelinka to move the trade back because Pelinka was dumb enough not to insist on the 7/30 date from the jump would be delicious.

    The Lakers weren't tanking 2 full seasons to sign AD. Also... PG13 was more adamant that he was going home to LA, and he changed his mind. If you sign LeBron James this is exactly what you should be doing, trying to trade for the best possible 2nd star to make one last 3 year run with the best...

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    They'd be very close, they'l be over 100 before adding whoever they get with the kyrie money, so that would mean renouncing Rozier or Morris at a minimum. Also makes it tough to use the exceptions. It also limits your ability to add players in season via trade. ALSO... it would hardcap the Nets...

    72 Suburbs in Search of a City: Anthony Davis to Los Angeles Lakers

    I think people are reading way too far into a "down" year this year, it came with a very weird team situation, and even then, it was actually a really good year for a 20 year old sophmore. If you look at guys who shoot like him on decent volume (150 3PA @ 37% or better, 100 FTA at 75% or...

    A S&T isn't happening, as it hard caps the Celtics The latter might work, but would be tough since they'd have to make all the picks, sign them, then hold them on the roster for 30 days, means basically passing on FA, sand ending up with 5 empty roster spots coming up on camp time, which would...

    https://twitter.com/KeithSmithNBA/status/1140281166873997313 So basically, since they aren't delaying the trade, it's either 23.7M or 27.7M depending on whether Davis waives his trade bonus, Some had thought they would delay the trade by signing the #4 then trading him 30 days after that date...

    Sure... which is why the picks are all 4-6 years down the line, when LeBron will be retired. Though why you say he's not Ming is weird, Yao Ming was legitimately dominant, he just destroyed his foot. Injuries happen too (KD is the best player in the league, he's going to miss next year), quite...

    Hypothetically....sure Horford could pick up his option, or he could opt out and re-sign to a longer deal Rubio.... if he's willing to take a deal that fits into the MLE he could be signed Capela... not sure where the salary match comes from, but if you can match salary sure #4- I doubt that's...

    Byerie Irving? Do you want Kyrie back?

    A S&T would hard cap the Celtics, they 100% do not want that. If Kyrie leaves, they likely re-sign Al, and other additions will be made with the MLE, LLE, draft picks and trades

    Davis is really good, but a lot can happen in even 4 years, especially to an injury prone player and particularly bigs, who often lose it fast. Just looking back, there was another dominant big, more dominant than AD, a staple in the 1st team All-NBA and often a top 5 MVP vote getter through...

    https://twitter.com/TimBontemps/status/1140085647543193601 likely 2 uprotected picks right around when LeBron is retiring with 2 unprotected swaps mixed in. That's a lot of draft upside if things go sideways

    I'm not so sure, I think some team that strikes out makes him a ridiculous offer. Ricky Rubio as the bench PG makes some sense, Beverley and Collison are other possible MLE guys at the position. Satoransky might be cheaper.
