"NBA Trade Deadline: Creepin on ah Come Up"


          

It’s right around the corner. Who can you see moving? What have you heard? What does your team need? I’ve been seeing we are interested in Taurean Prince and a few others. It’s been out there for a while but just read this morning that Dallas is ready to deal DSJr. and Wes Matthews.

...cleaned up my act, made a few violent songs...but, they wack like Glen Rice with New Balance on - Sean Price

Conley and Gasol officially on the market...end of an era =(
Jan 22nd 2019

Can't imagine trades. Too much money left on their deals
Jan 22nd 2019

Some delusional GM with no chance of winning will rent Gasol

BS in the air, re: Lakers/Suns/Pelicans
Feb 04th 2019

That's an overall win for LA if true.
Feb 04th 2019
71
That'd be a HUGE win for the Lakers.
Feb 04th 2019

      I hedged because I'd need to see what the cap looks like afterward

Huh?

As a Suns fan even with terrible PG situation
Feb 04th 2019
76
      His shooting needs to improve
Feb 04th 2019
79
           He's probably closer to non-shooting Eric Snow
Feb 07th 2019
261
                Actually...
Feb 07th 2019
276
This new rumor is way too much for the Pels to say no to.
Feb 04th 2019
85
That would... definitely be a lot.
Feb 04th 2019
86
And I'm not sure what that means long term.
Feb 04th 2019
87
      Klay Thompson...maybe even Durant
Feb 04th 2019
95
So who else do we take back? No way that works roster wise
Feb 04th 2019
88
I think that's Melo's music.
Feb 04th 2019
90
This also guarantees we pickup Melo. And whoever else on the waiver wire...
Feb 04th 2019
89
Lakers should not give up all 3 of the young core
Feb 04th 2019

And word is coming in from a NOP beat writer the Pels wont take it

The "reporting" has been trash on this trade.

True. But I was f5ing all day anyway so here we are
Feb 04th 2019
98
Rich Paul started all of this by leaking to Woj. This is the result
Feb 04th 2019
101
Seems like Woj is teasing an actual deal by retweeting Lavar
Feb 04th 2019
102
Woj has been anti-Lakers throughout this process. It's strange
Feb 04th 2019
103
      It's not strange, he's always petulant when not given access
Feb 05th 2019

There's two people who are actually reporting: Turner & Ganguli
Feb 05th 2019

Demps doesn’t want to deal to us obviously. But also...

Toronto offering up Lowery to Memphis...
Feb 05th 2019
120
That's probably a lateral move at best.
Feb 05th 2019
122
      Conley is WAY better than Lowry. We’ve gone down this road before.
Feb 05th 2019

           if Lowry played out west he wouldn’t have made a single all star game

                This wasn't the baseline. This was the max.
Feb 05th 2019

                not a fucking chance the lakers come back w/ anything close to this
Feb 05th 2019

                let's use basic logic on this.
Feb 06th 2019
191
                     Yes, let's.
Feb 06th 2019
192
                          Why would they? 2020 isn't that far away and they could sign AD
Feb 06th 2019

In response to Reply # 0


          

I am wondering what the asking price for Prince is. I'd love the Sixers to make a play for him so I don't have to watch the Corpse of Wilson Chandler in the starting 5.

I'm also wondering why the Hawks have him up on the block? Is it just he and Collins don't mesh well?

I think Lin and baze were higher up the trade list earlier than Prince actually because of their age, contracts, and how theyve played this year

10. "Jeremy spent all of last year"
In response to Reply # 8


  

          

or most of it rehabbing away from the team and rebuilding his body mechanics from the ground up. I dont know Ive actually been able to observe a difference (La2philly loves this type of stuff) so he'd probably be able to make more keen observations.

Beginning of the season Jeremy looked pretty slow and bad, and he isnt as explosive as he was in his younger years, but with his experience he's learned how to use his body, balance, and positioning which makes up for it. I've been proud of his growth as an NBA player --especially this year.

I feel like he's definitely lost a step defensively with lateral movement... which may not be a great sign given Andre's strength.

>the help we so sorely need

maybe if simmons learned to shoot outside of five feet you wouldn't have to cop extremely lame pleas for the entire roster. perhaps it would open up space for a great shooter like JJ and/or a great slasher like Jimmy. perhaps the entire team would benefit from having a guard with *at least* a respectable mid-range.

and don't even start with the defensive end. it's an understatement to say that the pieces are already there.

Ok... regardless of your Ben Simmons hate, the fact remains the Sixers only have 4 guys that have any business being in a playoff rotation and that is counting JJ Redick who is being asked to do way more than he should at this point in his career. We need another rotation player or two even if Ben turned into a league average shooter overnight.

In response to Reply # 4


  

          

And what a come up for him; from a dumpster fire/tanking situation to what should be on paper a sure fire ring. And I would imagine he'd contribute decently for them as well since he provides size and good defensive rebounding presence off the bench. I vaguely remember him playing well for his role when he was on the Knicks.

I like the culture fit for the team and the fact they can run him with Fox. But they already have Bogi playing well and Yogi and Mason playing well enough. Sac is also Bay area adjacent, so it brings him "home"

Early on in the season I saw it as a good fit for him, now not as much. I dont know what else makes sense. Spurs? There were Toronto rumors when Lowry got hurt but he's ok and FVV and Delon are fine. Philly could be an option but that was kind of shot down. Pelicans? Blazers wanted him for some reason..dont see the fit there with Dame, CJ and Duck Sauce playing major minutes.

Seems pretty probable he wont be a Hawk after the deadline though

He must've hit the floor 3X in the 30seconds he was in the game vs the 6ers

I think the refs gave him 1 of those calls...out of pity

only a matter of time before he's injured again

...and he isn't that great fully healthy...

Can't imagine anybody actively pursuing him IMO

They *bought* the team less than five years ago, right? The Nerder She Wrote Back to Back podcast got a little into the ownership issues this Thursday.

Kind of a shame because the team has been consistently good for number of years, better than their market is big enough to support.

The team still draws so I guess locals will support a winner.

Here's to better ownership. That squad deserves better.

Especially Conley, since it's over the next two years. And I believe both have players options their final season. No way should they walk away from that money.

I suppose "delusional" leaves some room for a guy who thinks Gasol would turn the corner in a new environment, but I think his body is just busted, at least for this year.

Also drafting Luke Kennard over Donovan Mitchell still makes me wince

I’d be thrilled beyond belief if Conley ended up on the Pistons

that move has to be something to support kemba, otherwise we'll lose him at the end of the year, despite the fact that no one (kemba included) wants that

theres a lot of options out there, hopefully mitch can make something happen

question.

http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/25900539/boston-celtics-guard-kyrie-irving-says-focus-title-not-future

"Just do the best for me. That's what it comes down to," Irving said. "Obviously this has become an entertainment thing for everyone. ... I'm not worried about a reputation, not worried about a legacy in the league. I'm just trying to be a human being, trying to make the best decision for my family."

http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/25894543/kyrie-irving-free-agency-influencing-deadline-moves

Kyrie Irving's free agency influencing deadline moves

Brian Windhorst
ESPN Senior Writer

With the Anthony Davis and Kristaps Porzingis bombshells rocking the NBA this week, teams are cautiously turning their eye toward the Boston Celtics to see if there is any fallout that affects Kyrie Irving's future.

In recent days, teams, players and agents have been discussing the possibility that free-agent-to-be Irving might not be as committed to the Celtics as he has stated publicly, multiple sources told ESPN. And on Friday in New York, Irving was asked if his mindset has changed regarding re-signing with Boston: "Ask me July 1." He says he's going to do what's best for his career.

Davis' camp has let it be known he doesn't consider the Celtics a long-term home because he doesn't believe Irving plans to re-sign with the Celtics next season, sources said. The New York Knicks' stunning salary-dump trade that moved out Porzingis on Thursday cleared enough salary-cap space for the team to chase both Kevin Durant and Irving in free agency.

The Celtics haven't changed their feelings on Irving, and they consider him part of their long-term core; and Irving hasn't informed the team that his feelings have changed, multiple sources said. In general, the Celtics have a reputation as a measured and strategic organization.

With trade demands flying and the high pressure of trade season, it is possible this is simply a disinformation campaign. Davis, for example, is incentivized to remove the Celtics as a bidder for him so he can achieve his preference and be sent to the Los Angeles Lakers. Irving and Davis, however, are friends and communicate regularly.

Nonetheless, there is no mistaking how this information has spread throughout the league despite Irving's strong statements to the contrary. In October, Irving committed to staying with the Celtics long term in front of thousands of fans at a team event. He backed that up with a Nike commercial shot at TD Garden in which he said he wanted to have his number in the rafters.

Things have changed somewhat in Boston since October, however. Irving has quarreled with several of the Celtics' young players at times. Gordon Hayward's recovery from a broken ankle has been more sluggish than expected. And the Celtics have underperformed; they are currently fifth in the Eastern Conference standings.

Celtics general manager Danny Ainge, known as Trader Danny for his willingness to make sweeping moves at any time, has to analyze the situation and make a read on how the team should proceed. There is a delicate scenario with the Celtics juggling several high-stakes situations.

The Celtics are currently precluded from trading for Davis because they've already traded for Irving, and teams are forbidden from trading for two players with designated player contracts. That restriction will expire on July 1 when Irving is projected to become a free agent. But with that fact in the way, the Celtics reached out to the New Orleans Pelicans this week and told them they'd be willing to discuss all players on their roster in a Davis trade that could be made after the season when Irving is expected to become a free agent, sources said.

It remains the Celtics' preference to trade for Davis in June, around the draft, and then re-sign Irving in July, locking both in as their cornerstones for the future. But if Irving's commitment isn't rock solid, things get complicated.

The Celtics might feel they need to execute a Davis trade to secure Irving's commitment. But for Boston to make a massive trade offer for Davis, it might first need to have Irving's commitment to re-signing. It's a chicken-and-egg scenario.

This could be one hope for the Lakers -- that the Pelicans believe the Celtics might never get the chance to make their best offer, and at least consider what the Lakers might offer now.

As Ainge contemplates that, there's another matter that remains on the Celtics' trade board. If the Celtics were to get skittish enough to trade Irving before the trade deadline, it would free them to make a Davis trade now.

Boston is investigating the asking price of a few intriguing young players around the league, perhaps with an eye on acquiring more of New Orleans' preferred trade chips, sources tell ESPN. That could simply be due diligence or the groundwork for something big in the near future.

Currently, the Pelicans don't intend to trade Davis to the Lakers, sources told ESPN, and they rejected a Knicks offer of a package centered on Porzingis before he was traded to the Dallas Mavericks, sources told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. It seems New Orleans might be content to wait on Boston to be able to make an offer, but that offer wouldn't have to wait until summer if Irving was moved.

The Celtics have won seven of their past eight games. Irving is having, by most accounts, the best regular season of his career. Despite the record, the Celtics are starting to look like the potent contender they were predicted to be at the start of the season.

There are reasons for them to proceed as normal, stick to their plan and trust Irving's word. But the past few days have destabilized situations across the league, and the Celtics are in the center of that storm.

ESPN's Jackie MacMullan and Zach Lowe contributed to this story.

We keep Hart and BI, and get Davis without taking back dignificant long term salary.

We'd have to take back another player or two to make it work though, so yeah, that's either figazi or just the main pieces.

My understanding has been that signing an FA this summer and then trying to flip the kids for that third star was our best course.

Huge would, IMO, mean we did the deal and managed to retain that flexibility for a third star and/or decent money to fill in the gaps.

Either way, retaining BI and Hart would be, well....Magic. lkl

it'd be different if AD was open in terms of where he wanted to go - but being that he's so specific with where he'll sign (Lakers) - nobody is going to give more talent than what the Lakers can offer.

Lakers shouldn't offer the house - but shipping away Kuz, Zo, Zu and some picks should get it done. If not? I'd say stick w/ the core, call the Pels' bluff, and then offer them a lesser package next year once they realize that nobody is going to offer them the goods for one-year of AD w/ one foot already out the door.

Bron's not 100%

Do they think they're going to win a chip by adding AD to a depleted roster?

I'd wait until the offseason, with the probability of keeping some of those pieces

And making a run in 2020 when they're 100%

74. "This is the downside of getting Brawn."
In response to Reply # 73


  

          

The general lack of patience with this group is annoying. Yes, I'd have preferred to run it back with last year's squad and given them a year or two of seasoning. Build incrementally. I don't like skipping steps.

But here we are. Can't really bitch about landing Brawn.

But now that we got Brawn, patience isn't at all part of the equation.

Which means we may well make a hasty move or two.

Thing is, this is AD. All in all, I'd rather we show some patience with what we have and make our play next season at the earliest.

But he is absutely worth breaking the bank and fillin ng in the gaps later. I'd be ok with it personally.

In response to Reply # 73
Mon Feb-04-19 01:29 PM by Vex_id

  

          

This year has been about figuring out who can run w/ the wolves for the next 3 years to vie for titles w/ Bron. They are in win-now mode for the next 3 years - but this year is experimental in a sense. Come next year, there will be no time for incremental improvement and patience with slowly developing young players.

I think the reason you want to try to get AD sooner than later is to go through the initial buffering phase where chemistry is developed. It'd be nice to do that now when there is really no expectation that the Lakers will make a deep playoff run. Also- the Lakers won't be done if they acquire AD - they will be able to make a play for another prime FA as well.

The Lakers have essentially seen what they have w/ the young core - and they should be comfortable w/ letting some of those promising pieces go for a rare talent like AD. That said, I wouldn't give up everybody - because I don't think the Pels are going to be able to command the market for AD. Teams ain't gonna give away the house for a one year rental.

77. "Huh?"
In response to Reply # 73


  

          

Rondo
Hart/Born Ready
BI/Beasley
Bron/Wagner/Williams
AD/McGee/Chandler

They'd need another ball handler but the buy out market is looming after the trade deadline. There will be a few cheap bodies looming (Carmelo, possibly Kanter, etc).

They get a decent back up PG, maybe add another wing and big for depth and they could absolutely run with the warriors in 7. Rondo, Bron and AD would be very formidable.

Might not beat them but would scare them for 6-7 games. Then they should have a max slot this summer to add the final piece (Kyrie/AD/Klay/Cousins).

... Bron ain't banging in the paint or anything at the 4. He'd likely bring up the ball a lot and lead the team in assists in the playoffs. I don't think they're overly worried about that aspect.

They wouldn't beat the Warriors with that lineup, but there's a lot there to like to suggest that they could at least give the Warriors some short-term scares, especially if Bron and AD are both healthy. Plus the promise of the future.

The Warriors play... weird when Rondo is in the game. Add Bron and AD? I dunno. I think it could be a series. As long as the Lakers don't fall all the way off so they miss the playoffs before that trade happens.

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.

Especially from the line. But from the perspective of someone to set up all that young talent and push an uptempo offense, Zo would be perfect for that team.

Takes the ball out of Bookers hands and allows him to do what he's best at...score. Will feed Ayton religiously.

For a fanbase that had Jason Kidd, not sure why you'd run from Zo this early in his career.

Kidd played 7 more minutes per game and was the primary ball handler so he has more dimes. Everything else is comparable about their second yr in the league.

Lonzo shoots better than Kidd overall and their 3pt % are damn near equal. Kidd was just a better FT shooter.

So...you were saying?

AD is making 27 million.
Lebron is making 37 million.
Solomon Hill is making 13 million.
Mo Wagner at 2 million.
Josh Hart at 2 million.
Bonga at 1.6 million.
Svi at 1.6 million.

So that means something like 84.2 million. There's a cap of 118 next year. That's not a ton of money to fill out that roster at ALL.

Says that if Lonzo gets traded, he wants it to be Phoenix, not the Pelicans. Okay, guy.

Regardless of what LaVar says, Pels are still going to probably wait until this summer. It's not like the Lakers won't offer them the same core and draft picks when they actually have to compete with other teams for the best package.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Too early to if I'm just rationalizing or what. But PG showed that nothing is guaranteed. I still think Kuz/BI/Zo will all be very good players.

But AD is otherworldly. This stings because I'm emotionally invested in these kids.

But getting Brawn made a move like this all but inevitable. If a player of this magnitude can be had, may as well go all in.

Essentially it's rumor after rumor and headline-grabbing opinion instead of actual facts.

Rest are agent and FO mouthpieces. Woj in particular has zero sources within the Lakers FO and Klutch (unless he gets direct quotes from Rich Paul, in which case Rich is using him as a mouthpiece) but he will try to act like what he's saying holds weight.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

https://twitter.com/FletcherWDSU/status/1092540085445238784

Pels think they can land Tatum from Boston - but even if they could - is that better than Kuz, Zo *and* BI? Seems like a clear no.

And I actually think Ainge is trolling because he wants to stick it to Bron in any way he can - so is misleading N.O. by saying he's not concerned with the fact that AD wants nothing to do with being in Boston.

If the Pels turn down the reported trade featuring Zo, Kuz & B.I. and picks (and cap-space) - then they are just inept. They won't get a better deal (and I don't think the Lakers should give that much up).

Really not even sure what I prefer at this point.

I love this roster. I'd like to see them cook.

But it's AD.

Either choice portends a lot, and if we don't pull it off, I'm a bit concerned about a potential headache from disgruntled players. May as well sit Brawn and let the kids cook if that happens.

It's basically just freeing up an additional $8 million in salary. I think KCP has trade veto power (lol) but if we trade KCP's $12 mil for Jabari's $20 mil with a team option on next year, it means there's that much less salary.

Is his ultimate goal to put doubt into ADs mind about being a Laker because they wouldn’t give up too much for him?

LeBron is on the downside of his career and AD is injury prone. You can’t give up ALL the young players AND picks 7 years in the future. Fuck that. That’s how you become the Nets.

If they do that bullshit.

The most recent offer was already overpaying in a market with no serious active competition.

But two more picks on top of what we already offered? They can go fuck themselves.

Lowry and Conley are a wash (I'd probably give the edge to Lowry just on age and injury history) and Gasol is on the downside of his career. He's better than Jonas, but...ehhh.

Again, no one should be shocked here. The Pels were always going to wait until the Summer, unless the Lakers agreed to four picks, young talent, cap relief deal.

And shoot, they'll still have a shot to get it, depending on what other teams offer, and how much pressure Paul puts on the Laker's front office.

EDIT: It is interesting the that Lakers were down to give up the ENTIRE young core (Ball, Ingram, Hart, Zubac, and Kuzma), KCP, two first rounders, and take on Solomon Hill's salary. It was when the Pelicans asked for two more first rounders and two second rounders that they balked.

The problem is there's just no contender with an expendable player even remotely on the level of value of Anthony Davis. Not even a pair of players tbh. So it makes sense that the Pels are gonna ask for way more than a team will be willing to part with at first. They can just chill Davis out on the bench, get the tank rolling, see if they can get Zion, and work from there.

Good that they are pulling out. N.O. can drag this into the summer and beyond - only to find out that there is no offer more compelling than what the Lakers just offered. At that point, Lakers should not offer what they offered this week - and they won't.

Congrats N.O. - you just made a bad business decision.

I'm guessing the Bostons and SA's of the world are going to be putting together pretty heavy offers that will mix quality and draft picks. The Pels will have a better idea of what teams are going to offer.

Yeah, this summer they'll offer even more than the young core and two draft picks. Paul will def. put the pressure on them to.

Indeed they will. And they'll discover that nobody is going to give them all the draft picks and quality young talent that the Lakers just offered up. Nobody. You think Boston is giving up Tatum and prime talent/picks for a one-year rental? Pop? AD is not going to sign in Boston or S.A. They are trolling and they have one thing in common: an interest in not allowing players/agents to dictate. That's what this is all about.

Yeah, these teams aren't going to low-ball the Pels. What would be the point? And Boston certainly would give up Tatum and draft picks.

> You think Boston is giving up Tatum and prime talent/picks for a
>one-year rental? Pop?

People can say this as much as they want, but it all changes when the player actually joins another team. Once again, it was a forgone conclusion George was a one-year rental for OKC and was Lakers-bound, and it wasn't. If the Celts trade for AD and then get to the Finals, no one should fool themselves into thinking he'd leave just to go to the Lakers instead. Same with him going to the Spurs and going deep in the play-offs.

>They are
>trolling and they have one thing in common: an interest in not

>about.

What would be the endgame for "trolling" the Pels? They talk the Pels out of not trading AD to the Lakers this season, then offer them jack shit over the summer? For what? Risk the Pels going back to the Lakers? And even in the fantasy world where the Lakers then low ball the Pels and they "have" to settle for less, then AD is on the Lakers and not the Celtics or the Spurs or whoever.

>lol no chance the Lakers offer more than what they just
>offered.

The additional draft picks are what's going to be needed to get the deal done for the Lakers. Especially with no guarantee that the Lakers young core would even re-up for the Pels. LaVar ball is already telling anyone who'll listen that Lonzo will refuse to even play for the Pels if he gets traded.

If it takes more draft picks to make the trade happen, the Lakers will make included more draft picks. Especially when they're competing with other suitors.

...will get from the Lakers is what they just offered. That's the baseline moving forward. But it will be more, because the Lakers will offer more draft picks. Otherwise, the Pels sit on AD until next year's trade deadline, waiting for someone to get desperate.

In response to Reply # 140


  

          

I doubt we add additional picks. And if so, they would come with a concession elsewhere, and/or heavily protected.

As far as teams getting "desperate", that's not the case. NO will be in a position to either get a return or let him walk, allowing someone else sign him outright.

At that point, where is the incentive to give up the farm?

The only reason we offered as much as we did is because Boston may be able to field a competing offer this summer, in addition to whoever lands the #1 this year. We bid against ourselves to get him now, but NO is overplaying that with the impression that Ainge will offer a bigger treasure trove.

If they don't deal him now, it becomes a buyers market.

In response to Reply # 140


  

          

The Lakers offered the house *right now* because they knew that everyone else couldn't get involved or be prepared to negotiate right now - so they presented their max offer.

They will have no reason to offer this equivalence (let alone more) in the summer. No other team is going to offer what the Lakers just offered - and the Lakers will know that and then the Pels will have to make a decision as to what the best return is for AD (and perhaps their emotions will calm down by the summer).

Sucks for N.O. They almost bled out the Lakers with an absurd package - and absolutely should have done that.

Really? No reason? Even after other teams make their offers? They're not going to try to compete because NO turned them down in February? After Boston and whoever else make their offers, the Lakers are just going to offer Zubac and a sack of hair, just to just show the Pels? That would make Magic a really crappy GM.

And you keep on saying "No other team is going to offer what the Lakers are offering," like that's somehow set in stone. And like that package is somehow the best thing for the Pels moving forward.

They'll offer a competitive package - but it won't be what they just offered because they won't have as much of an incentive to get the deal done. They will be looking at other FA's in the Summer and won't be solely focused on landing AD (when they can just wait a year and sign him outright).

The Lakers incentive for signing AD *now* was to compete this year with him -- the longer this drags along, the less incentive there is for the Lakers to not just wait until he's a FA and make their pitch then.

>And you keep on saying "No other team is going to offer what
>the Lakers are offering," like that's somehow set in stone.
>And like that package is somehow the best thing for the Pels
>moving forward.

We'll see - but again - I'm just using logic. Why would a team offer anything on-par w/ what the Lakers offered when AD has made it clear he doesn't want to sign with them? You think Boston is going to offer Tatum, Rozier and tons of draft picks for AD w/ out knowing that he wants to be there? Same goes for other teams.

Again: Zo, BI, Kuz, Zubac plus multiple draft picks is a hell of an offer. It's too much. Let's see if anyone matches that and return to this discussion then.

You know who's not going to be happy about that scenario? Rich Paul and LeBron James. They wanted AD on the team right now, or failing that, this summer. So if the Pels decide not to trade AD before the deadline and then some other team trades for him during the off-season because the Lakers weren't willing to offer the Pels the same deal that they did in February, the Lakers would have a very hard time explaining to those two, "Hey, we can always sign him in 2020!" By then LeBron is 36. And none of the free agents that the Lakers are going to have a shot at signing this summer are going to be as good as AD.

I'm using logic as well. If the Celtics make that offer, trade for AD, then go to or win the Finals, you think that he's definitively going to say, "Nah, man, I'm not staying here. It's off to the Lakers I go"? Inertia in these situations is extremely important, which is why the Lakers and Rich Paul are desperate to get this done as soon as possible.

and like CC said below I also think the Clippers are in the running as being part of the 4 teams AD has given the go ahead for a long term deal and the draft pick assets that are better than LAL's picks and probably better than Boston's too

https://www.si.com/nba/2019/02/05/nba-trade-rumors-mike-conley-kyle-lowry-marc-gasol-grizzlies-raptors

The Memphis Grizzlies have continued trade discussions on both franchise cornerstones Mike Conley and Marc Gasol in lead up to Thursday’s trade deadline. As has been widely reported, the Utah Jazz have initiated negotiations centered around Ricky Rubio involving a young player such as Dante Exum and Grayson Allen while the Detroit Pistons have called building packages around point guard Reggie Jackson.

Perhaps of greatest intrigue, the Toronto Raptors have called Memphis offering Jonas Valanciunas and Kyle Lowry for both of Conley and Gasol, league sources told Sports Illustrated. Memphis, sources said, would prefer to receive younger players such as OG Anunoby or draft assets in any exchange with Toronto that would send Conley north. The Grizzlies of course rejected Toronto’s initial offer.

Lowry has been made aware of Toronto’s negotiations involving him, according to once source close to the All-Star point guard.

whoever that GM is needs to be canned this offseason if they dont get a better offer than what the Lakers did

that being said i cant blame this current group of young guys for feeling betrayed/undermined, but the nba is business and they'll soon learn.

what a mess all around though, i cant imagine AD is very popular among his teammates

In response to Reply # 153


  

          

basically with bron, brow and another max FA they can't afford to pay any of these dudes their market salary after their rookie deals anyway. so why should this be a surprise? it's not a "fair" deal to trade your whole team apart from bron for one guy, but it's a practical deal looking at all angles.

as for dell demps, he is not going to win any GM of the year awards in this lifetime. but he is not in a hurry here and i get the feeling like the ownership has instructed him to avoid dealing AD to the lakers if possible. they seem pretty touched by this whole klutch koup.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

232. "eh i am still in that they were never that good/promising camp"
In response to Reply # 147


  

          

a hot streak with absolutely nothing on the line never sold me. other than BI i am not hype on any one player and much less on how they fit together. and obviously getting bron and then losing him for a quarter of the season hasn't helped matters. if i were them i would probably give in to bron's whim and be a super team. a lotta talk about are they going to be a vehicle like the cavs were or a real organization like the heat were, although i dunno about that dichotomy. but you look at it, hey, riley was in miami a long time and so was wade. the lakers have no figured like riles in the FO or like wade on the court. they are a vehicle; history has nothing to do with it. this season is pretty much in the trash. i would give in and let bron and klutch do their thing here.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Pistons might be looking to add heavy salary (Conley) and won't resign Bullock this off-season anyways but get a potential shooter replacement. We get a pretty damn good shooter (39% on catch and shoot 3's from all over the floor) who fits into our 1-year deal cap space.

http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/25935274/clippers-agree-trade-tobias-harris-76ers-deal-involving-6-players

Sources: Clippers agree to trade Tobias Harris to 76ers in deal involving 6 players
2:35 AM ET
Adrian Wojnarowski
ESPN

print
The LA Clippers have agreed to trade forward Tobias Harris, center Boban Marjanovic and forward Mike Scott to the Philadelphia 76ers for guard Landry Shamet, forwards Wilson Chandler and Mike Muscala, its 2020 first-round pick, an unprotected 2021 unprotected first-round pick via Miami and a 2021 and 2023 second-round pick, league sources told ESPN.

Harris could be moving toward a maximum-level contract in free agency this summer, something that would've been difficult for Clippers to do with their own free agency aspirations.

Harris could be moving toward a maximum-level contract in free agency this summer, something that would've been difficult for the Clippers to give with their own free-agency aspirations.

Philadelphia has long-term plans for Harris, Jimmy Butler, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons together, budgeting to re-sign and keep a new big four, league sources told ESPN. In addition to Harris, Butler will be a free agent this summer.

Harris leads the Clippers in scoring this season, averaging a career-best 20.7 points in 54 games.

They got quite a few picks and some not bad pieces for a guy that was leaving anyway, and they could be an underrated free agent destination this summer.

I don't see how anyone beats Philly in the East.

Who is your favorite Kyrie type?

That Sixers trade felt desperate - gave up way too much for an expiring FA. And throwing Shamet in the deal was just weird. But fundamentally... their crunch-time 5 is flawed now. No lineup flexibility, nobody to defend the Kyrie types. Why not make same offer for Jrue Holiday?

230. "Good trade for Sixers, very good trade for Clippers"
In response to Reply # 165


  

          

For the people saying ZOMG WHY DID THEY GIVE SO MUCH FOR A PENDING UFA, they will get him re-signed yet they were unlikely to have the cap space to sign him outright on July 1, and further he wasn't going to get that point as there were other interested teams (who wanted to acquire and extend him). He is a good fit for this five offensively, a very good fit, a shooter who isn't a specialist. I mean his percentages are the same as Korver's from 3 and solid from inside the arc, yet he can also play. They also get a real backup center here and probably a better fit as a backup 4 with Scott in place of Muscala. Giving up Shamet hurts but you gotta figure that put it over the top. The first this year is no big deal and while the Miami first may hurt, it was acquired exactly for this kind of trade.

The Clippers make out very well here. They need real max players, not supporting big-money players like Harris. They also don't want to forfeit their first this year so it behooves them to miss the playoffs (confers if they make it). They get two firsts, a decent young guard, a contract that they can flip in Chandler, etc. I think they will do more dealing before July 1, possibly even at the deadline. Clean house and position themselves to make a run at AD in a trade and Kawhi as a UFA. In fact I will go out on a limb and say they land AD. Think about it, they have a lot of assets, savvy management and if all things are equal or near equal, the Pelicans would love to stick it to the Lakers and send him to the same building to wear a different jersey. I don't think Boston will land him and I am not sure Toronto has the futures to do it unless they open up their bag pretty wide. I dunno if the Clippers are being discussed as a possibility but of all the team-up scenarios I could see and would like a Brow/Claw tandem more than any other.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

The Clips getting that valuable Miami pick and others to stockpile is what the Pels wanted in a trade. I am assuming SGA goes with them too and a few pieces to make the deal work moneywise.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          


Again, what was the rush for the Pelicans? There was one credible (desperate) suitor, of course they should ask for as much as they can. And if there's no real urgency on their part, and Davis/Paul(Bron) have already showed their hands, why rush? Rich Paul and AD thought they could just will this into existence, never considering that in the end they don't really have power like that, don't really have the most leverage. Worse yet, the Lakers are now going to be forced to offer up even MORE than they offered this time around, because all it will take next time is one more suitor to crank up the heat in Staples Center (presumably Boston.)

Man I come away from this thinking, like I've thought many times before, that Danny Ainge is the most gangster GM there is. He spoiled the Lakers plans, hinted at making Tatum available, then probably won't make Tatum available and will still offer the nicest rebuilding package this Summer.

anyway, I feel like the Lakers should be more focused on 2019 free agents.

AD has all but come out and said that he's not interested in Boston. So in the end Ainge might be playing himself as well by alienating Tatum.

If their priority is to get as much return value as possible for AD - then no - they've made a horrible business decision tainted by emotions.

How does that help Ainge or the Pels? Also - AD does not want to go to Boston precisely because of how disloyal Ainge is (citing the IT situation). So sure - you can praise Ainge for being a GOP fanboy and a bitter GM, but his mindset in seeing players as expendable human capital is not serving the organization as they try to land AD.

this is dumb. AD wants a trade now and LA is ready to give up all their young talent aka treating them as "expendable human capital". how else is this supposed to work?
the only reason they say this is because he wants to got to LA and nowhere else. the other teams they named are just to pretend he is not set on one team.

big difference between trading young assets for a rare superstar big-man in Anthony Davis and riding IT until the wheels come off - knowing that he's seriously injured in a contract year (yet you keep playing him) while he's dealing with the death of his sister - and then you just throw him off the ship like damaged cargo and say "it's just business."

That's fine - but don't be surprised when AD and his family want nothing to do with him going to Boston after that.

sure, i was also empathetic towards IT but it really is no different from any other player getting traded without wanting out.
we usually don't know other players personal stories and affiliations within the org, city etc.
you are getting traded in this league if your org thinks they are better without you. same happens the other way around, see AD.
same happens much quicker to coaches. COY? fine, lose a couple of games to start the season and you're out.
i woulnd't have wanted to make that decision but if it's about feelings not being hurt most trades won't happen.
celtics had a chance to get a rare super star and shot at a chip that they didn't have with IT.
did IT say that he didn't want to play because of the terrible accident or injury?
and he did get send to a team that just competed in the finals with arguably the best player in the league...who probably had no problem to pass IT along either because it apparently didn't work out.

again, if loyalty is so important they would not want the lakers to trade their young future to a team that will go nowhere.

LA has been bidding against themselves this whole time lol and apparently NY was the #1 team on his list, not LA

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

They don’t know what Boston’s offer will be, it’s all hypotheticals. Regardless, the mistake our FO made is not walking away earlier and actually getting a counter offer before continuing to offer more. It’s also made more difficult by other GMs and organizations telling Demps not to give in.

I mean shit man, if these players can just collude out in the open, why can't the GMs talk to Demps? If the Pelicans just trade him and not seek optimum value, then in a way they're just kowtowing to Rich PAul, Anthony Davis, and Lebron James. I completely get them digging their heels in.

Will Ainge actually offer Tatum or not? No one knows that.

As for the GM's talking, I wasn't inferring that they shouldn't. GM's talk all the time, far more than players do. I have no problems with either yet organizations only problems when the players want to take their fortunes into their own hands even though the organization has proven inept.

In response to Reply # 188


  

          

Their options are much broader in the summer than at the deadline and taking a bad team's whole roster doesn't sound like a slam dunk to me either. I'd have handled this a little differently than they have, but I'd definitely have let this roll over into the offseason when teams have more options and there will be more suitors.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

proved themselves to be inept. They will have destroyed the morale and spirit of this team. The young boys will be ready to just get this season over with. Might as well just sit Lebron for the rest of the season so these young dudes can cook more.

Damned shame how they played themselves. Mitch may have struck out too much in his last few years but he damned sure didn't look as bad as these dudes will if AD ain't wearing the Purple & Gold before the All-Star break.

as part of a deal involving BK Berder (Brandon "Hammer Shoes" Knight).

though the Thunder also has interest. Acquired him from the Jazz earlier in the season. I think I like that Rockets deal, if only because it helps them (Burks is a pretty good rotational guard on an expiring)

how Leonsis runs the Caps so well, and with the Wiz basically does the exact opposite of everything that worked.

new GM: wins championship by tweaking previous team

Ernie Grunfeld: below mediocre forever, never fired.

In response to Reply # 241


          

I think Wall's popped achilles finally made it clear that this team is going to be, at best, a borderline playoff team for the foreseeable future.

No point paying the luxury tax for a team with limited potential.

This feels like a mini-reboot... I assume they're going to keep Brad and a couple of the young guys and try to re-orient the team for when Wall returns in a season and a half.

And they still want to push for the playoffs for some horrible reason.

Good thing is they get away from Otto's contract before that 15% trade kicker kick in at the offseason.

portis is good, but redundant. plays the same position as lauri legend and WCJ.

parker's a guy they never should've signed in the first place.

and both were out the door this summer.

to turn that into a good player at a position of need? nice.

porter has 2 more years left. those were years when the club wasn't going to be a player in free agency anyway. so yes he's overpaid but the contract is really a moot point.

this is a win.

Checked out a couple months ago and life has been good. But it’s been weird not caring/watching. I expect them to be somewhat watchable after the break.

I understand the tank and all but our core needs to prove something in the second half. Otto could be the perfect glue guy.

235. "They opened up $30M in cap space tonight"
In response to Reply # 226


  

          

And would get another $10m if Dwight Powell opts out. They want to go big game hunting this summer with their new, young star core in place and see if they get any traction. If not, they can try and trade someone into that space next year.

I feel like this is all pretty damn appealing for them. And Barnes honestly isn't an amazing fit next to Doncic. When you have a player that good, makes sense to try and lose anything that doesn't look perfect next to him (which is partly why I think they were so game to cut bait with DSJ, even though I still think he could be really damn good).

I'm not surprised beat writers haven't driven that potential story line into the ground since Durant did get Porzingis that Unicorn nickname.
