I like this for Milwaukee, they are desperate for perimeter defense. Even hitting just 33% of his wide open 3's, he's a better fit next to Lillard than Malik Beasley hitting 45%. Less so for Philly, unless they just really love injury prone guys (Payne has played in 47/51 games this year, but has averaged just 41 games per season over his first 8 years, never playing more than 60).

Crazy that they just flat our released Killian Hayes
dumped Knox in a trade, probably couldn't get anyone to take Hayes. Not willing to fire Monty after giving him all that money, so just making roster moves to force him to play they young guys over the bust vets.

It already was, but this is now easily the best Knicks roster since the 90s. Incredible depth, no serious injuries...just a lot of tired guys at the moment. Post ASB we should see Randle back and OG continues to be day-to-day. Mitchel on his way back...just an incredible roster and as a Knicks fan I'm going to enjoy the ride, first round exit or later exit, it's a fun season.

You got one of the Bogdanovics. They are kind of dreamy as scorers and he is exactly what that team needs to become really dangerous.

I will say it - if things break right the Knicks have a legit path to the finals

If by "break right" you mean one of the key Celtics players getting hurt, sure.

around the way
The Mavs gave up a 2027 1st round pick (barely protected) to swap Grant Williams for PJ Washington...I think they can go on a run this spring, and thought so before this trade actually. This feels like an insane amount of downside for marginal upside, regardless of how bad Grant has been.
Word. I'm not 100% sure that Washington is an upgrade over Bad Grant, nevermind with a first thrown in. It's shocking that they couldn't do better.

Why was Grant a terrible signing at the time? It was pretty much universally agreed that he was a good get at that salary
1. Yes, it was no surprise that Grant got signed at that number. Doesn't mean that he's that valuable of a player though.
2. His 3pt shooting, while still good, has regressed with more volume, and his defense has tanked.

Probably most of his defense tanking is how Dallas is using him, while the rest could very well be because that team is so bad defensively that it brings everyone's numbers down. But the couple of times that I've seen him play, he looks like his second season when he put all that weight on. Slow and unathletic.


I think that P.J. gives them more defensive flexibility in that he seems more capable of covering away from the basket than Grant right now, but it's a dropoff in shooting, which you can't have too much of with dual ball-dominant guards. This move is a head-scratcher for me.

Seeing some tweets that say the Celtics are likely done making moves today.
Danuel House looking to be an early candidate for the ring-chasing bidding wars.

Does he pass through waivers? Not sure Celtics want him enough to use up the TPE that way.

Thought House acquitted himself reasonably well with the Jazz in 22 and Philly last year in the playoffs. Would be nice to get someone as a tweener wing, I might feel a bit better about him out then Brissett in certain spots (or break glass in case of emergency injury spots).

Not even the fake second round pick that most lottery picks generate when the first team gives up on them. Poor KOC, he’ll never live this one down.
As he should. Calling Hayes the best player in his class...he's dead last among the 60 players drafted that year in win shares, even behind the handful of guys (Yam!) that haven't played a minute in the NBA. He's a relatively historic bust even for a 7th pick, and someone paid to talk and write about the NBA thought he would be the best player in his entire draft class. He'll always be tied to Hayes, and to his credit, KOC is well aware of this fact.

The worst part is that the following year, after significant evidence had been gathered that he wasn’t any good, KOC doubled down by saying Cade was the perfect complement to Hayes and that it would give them one of the best young backcourts in the league.

In for a penny, in for a pound. Now he's hoping that the Spurs pick him to pair with Wembanyama. He's a perfect fit for that team, they love rostering non-NBA level guys next to Wemby.

Dude simply can’t shoot. They may do this to give Wemby a French friend but, yeah, he just isn’t good enough.

Grant has regressed badly, not just the 3s but he couldn’t defend at all either.

The last few months he had become the worst version of himself on the Celtics, can’t blame the Mavs for cutting bait.

Is PJ Tucker washed? I'm surprised the Bucks traded for PatBev instead of PJ.
