"NBA Offseason Moves Post"


  

          

Since we're getting started already.

Ilyasova traded to DET for Butler, Williams
Ersan Ilyasova has been traded to the Pistons in exchange for Caron Butler and Shawne Williams, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski.
This is an interesting move, and it may mean that Detroit doesn't like their chances of retaining Greg Monroe as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. If Monroe does indeed leave the Pistons this offseason, Ersan would slot into the starting power forward spot, and he could be a nice fit in Stan Van Gundy's system. Health is the biggest concern for Ilyasova, as he's been missed an average of 25.5 games over the past two seasons, but he did have a nice run to close out the 2014-15 season, posting averages of 14.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.9 three-pointers per game on 47.3 percent shooting after the break.

Good move for both squads
Jun 11th 2015
1
monroe is still the best player out of all of them tho
Jun 11th 2015

Even if they keep Monroe, he will be useful to them
Jun 15th 2015

The Bucks get...
Jun 11th 2015

Yeah monroe is gone. Heading to the knicks
Jun 11th 2015

Fascinating.

Celtics have their pick for Doc.
Jun 15th 2015
15
      They need a combo guard and/or swingman, he's kinda both
Jun 15th 2015
19
           if he's 14 lance and not 15 lance, it's a perfect fit imo.
Jun 15th 2015
20
           I think he's best with the ball in his hands.
Jun 15th 2015
21
                He can play, three positions and can spell Chris for 5-10 minutes a game
Jun 15th 2015
26
                IMO when Crawford and Redick are healthy, they just need a D guy
Jun 16th 2015

How are teams allowed to trade now?
Jun 15th 2015
13
Trade deadline ends on team's last game
Jun 15th 2015
17
Didn't know that. Seems unfair for teams still playing no?
Jun 15th 2015
27
      I think they can still talk trade.
Jun 15th 2015
29
           yeah but imagine if a player caught wind of that..
Jun 18th 2015
50
Your guy just isn't making any trades. Tweet him the rules.
Jun 15th 2015
25
      No thank you...only trade chip we got is our pick
Jun 15th 2015

Inspired move from a risk/reward perspectivep
Jun 15th 2015
23
yup.
Jun 15th 2015
24
Yeah, I'm not even sure the risk is *that* big for them
Jun 16th 2015
32
      I really think this is an ideal situation for him, starting with Doc.
Jun 16th 2015
33
      The risk is minuscule, it's the stakes that are high
Jun 16th 2015

Vince Staples had a hilarious tweet to Austin Rivers about this:

I love the wording of this. It would be unfair!
Jun 17th 2015
41
Two firsts and I think Hinkie would take it
Jun 17th 2015
44
      Oh for sure he would. But GS owes 2017 to Utah for the Iggy thing.
Jun 17th 2015

           Ah forget it then, not interested in one first

I dunno...Faried, Lawson and #7 is good ass haul man.
Jun 18th 2015
53
      Oh, they would get the 7 too? Ehh.
Jun 18th 2015
54
      Well I just assume they would need to throw in #7.
Jun 18th 2015
55
      Good point. He's never had a Boogie type of player.
Jun 18th 2015
56
      The move is great for the Kings, awful for Denver
Jun 18th 2015

If true I guess that takes the Lakers out of the Boogie sweepstakes
Jun 18th 2015
63
      True. Can't help but wonder what the hell Denver is thinking though.
Jun 18th 2015
65
           Their thinking, presumably, would be that stars are harder to find
Jun 18th 2015

           Lawson and Faried are unhappy in Denver.

Gives the Bucks some cap room. Pistons get a possible replacement for Monroe and also may be a better fit too.

per woj:

In a high-risk, high-reward move, the Los Angeles Clippers have acquired guard Lance Stephenson from the Charlotte Hornets, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The Clippers are sending forwards Spencer Hawes and Matt Barnes to the Hornets, sources said. The teams were having a trade call with the NBA office to finalize the deal on Monday evening, sources said.

For the Clippers, this is a fascinating acquisition. Stephenson, 24, is a talented but temperamental player who turned out to be a free-agent bust for the Hornets. Charlotte has been desperate to unload Stephenson since early in the 2014-15 season.

Nevertheless, the Clippers needed athletic, talented wing players to compete in the Western Conference, and there’s hope Stephenson will fit better into a more talented, veteran-laden Clippers team that more closely resembles the Indiana Pacers than the Charlotte Hornets did. The Clippers are strapped under the salary cap and need to find creative ways to improve their roster.

Stephenson has two years left on his contract, but the 2016-17 season is a team option of $9.4 million. So, the Clippers will be committed to paying him the $9 million owed this season – and could then let him go if things don’t work out. For Clippers president and coach Doc Rivers, he’s counting on Stephenson to recapture the production of his four seasons in Indiana, where he developed into an important player on a two-time Eastern Conference finalist.

The Clippers are considering the idea of using Stephenson as the primary ballhandler when All-Star Chris Paul is out of the game, league sources said. Stephenson struggled with the way Charlotte point guard Kemba Walker dominated the ball on offense, and will assuredly find a similar situation with Paul in Los Angeles.

Hawes has three years and $17 million-plus left on a free-agent deal that he signed in summer 2014. He struggled for the Clippers and was unable to consistently crack the rotation. The Hornets are desperate for perimeter shooting, and he gives them a stretch-4 man with good 3-point range and passing skills. Barnes has one year at $3.4 million left on his deal, and will bring Charlotte wing defense and toughness.

On one hand, wow, I mean I guess it might be better than nothing at all but an aging, average 3-and-D 3 and a shitty contract was all they could get? This is an ongoing disaster for the Hornets. Even if Hawes regains some of his form, he won't help them the way he could have helped the Clippers. Barnes is just a stopgap guy who might help them momentarily, I mean I remember meeting Barnes at UCLA when I was still in high school. He is not young.

From the Clippers' perspective they dump a buyer's remorse contact and a guy they'd have had to replace soon if not already (wasn't exactly clutch for them in them 'offs). What do they get back? Potentially an $18M albatross or potentially the answer to most of their problems. He can back up three positions and provide some of the toughness that Barnes did. They still need another big desperately and I don't think they have a first-round pick.

I had heard a rumor about Stephenson to the Clippers during the year but I can't say I saw this coming. I think it will turn out to be a wheel-spinning move but given the situation they were in, I definitely get why they did it. They had to take a risk to get what they needed and that risk is mitigated by the fact that they lamented signing Hawes almost as much the Hornets regretting signing Stephenson.

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

I'm just not seeing the fit for Lance here. Especially since the Clippers needed depth, not a roll of the dice in Lance. I was hoping Stephenson would go someplace like Dallas where might be a better fit but I'm not really sure how this can work out for either side.

Which he won't have with CP3 around.

The Clippers needed to upgrade their 3 & D guy and actually got a worse shooter in Lance. On top of that, they lost their backup to DeAndre who I believe is a free agent this offseason.

I hope Lance fits in but I just don't see the Clippers as the place to utilize him the right way. Doc is also quick with the doghouse so things could go south fast.

They don't need a 3D "guy" necessarily. A utility guy like Lance is a stronger asset to this team IMO. Reddick can still stroke it and Lance will get far better looks on a team with Blake and Paul.

Maybe Lance can be that. Obviously they need Rivers to continue improving. To me upgrading Barnes was less a concern than upgrading Hawes, something they really need to do now. Maybe they can buy a draft pick and grab a big, that seems like the best course of action unless a serviceable old guy at the vet minimum appears.

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

They just can't finalize the deals. I don't think there's anything preventing the Warriors from talking about dealing David Lee.

It's kind of like the July Moratorium for signings. Teams can start talking to free agents on July 1st but the signings aren't official until a week or so later when the Moratorium is up.

Not sure why there isn't a moratorium on deals till the season ends for everyone

-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.

It could payoff huge. He's another cog in the wheel here and he'll find a role similar to what he had in Indy. They're strapped for cash, in need of a young, dynamic wing who can defend with few assets outside of their core, so why nor roll the dice here on a guy with massive upside relative to their need?

A+ move in my book.

They actually came out AHEAD contract-wise here, because if Stephenson continues his transformation from Born Ready to Stillborn, they can just cut his ass after the season. Pretty sure year 3 is a team option, which boggles the mind considering the deal he turned down from Indy.

Meanwhile Hawes' deal had two guaranteed years left at least, maybe three, I don't recall how that final year was structured.

So from a gamble standpoint, it's a house-money type of bet.

That said, they can't afford to be asset managers, they want to win a title NOW. Furthermore, if he came that cheaply and no other team would take him (including the Clips during last season with essentially this same offer), how good can he be?

This is just such an odd situation, I can't remember a player this young who was relatively accomplished who found himself on the scrap heap like this without a major injury or drug problem.

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

I'm dying.

His no-defense playing ass is making $15 million, GS woulda traded him for nothing a year ago if anyone had been dumb enough to take him on.

Now he is an expiring so the odds are better. But they still have to either:


A. Find someone with an equally unappealing contract(s) to match

or

B. Attach assets to to make it palatable to the 76ers of the world (teams with cap space). But they already did this with Iggy, and the 30th pick aint worth 15 mil so who knows.

$15M or whatever for one year, that's fine, I mean every year we don't hit the floor we have to pay the differential in fines anyway. So the money gets spent on a guy who can come in and show these kids how to act like a pro, and then maybe we flip him at the deadline for another asset, too.

It would probably be worth it for GS because giving Green a big new contract will really puts the screws to them luxury tax wise.

Aka shit on a wall...but still, no doubt these 2 teams are talking based on the trading of their coach/GM. A few different possibilities because they have the #6 and #7 picks too.

Per Joe Kotoch of @sheridanhoops, #Nuggets & #Kings have engaged in trade talks involving Boogie Cousins for Ty Lawson & Kenneth Faried.

Maybe throw in Nurkic and Sac adds Collison.

Karl wants to run, he won 57 games with an offense built around Ty and Manimal. There is enough in Denver to get a deal done I think, if Sac is really serious about moving Boog.

Yeah Karl has struggled in the offs, but a team built around Boogie hasn't even come close to getting there. Yes he's a beast, but definitely not a Karl type centerpiece.

Karl's style is his style, not going to change. Might as well bring in the personnel that fits it.

Faried, Lawson, and 7 straight up for Boogie?

The 6 and 7 could be flipped for another veteran or simply drafted. That's an awful lot to build around.

Conversely, Denver gets stripped bare and Cuz wastes the next three years of his career.

Although, I guess if you get Boogie, you can then deal Nurkic for a PG or whichever hole they fill they need to fill.

I guess the key is the former players heading back to coaches they liked playing for. Not sure either team really gets any better. Reshuffling deck chairs on the Titanic kind of deal.

In response to Reply # 49


  

          

That is better than anything they could offer. Above average point guard, bamma of extraordinary bamma-ness and a pick that isn't too too far from what L.A. has.

I like that deal for Sac, it gives them a team rather than a guy. That said, you *should* get a lot for an all-NBA entering his prime and under contract. Think about the haul above average point guard Jrue got, two lotto picks, largely because of a favorable contract/age situation.

There has to be an immediate follow up plan. That's not a move you make in a vacuum.

Boogie's a monster but if that's all they have they're in trouble. They're no better off than they were before and probably worse, they're not a FA destination town, and the end game here is a disgruntled superstar who they'll have to unload in 2.5 years for pennies on not only his value, but the price they paid to get him to begin with.

So it's not like Boogie being unhappy would be any different. And he might be happy because he's reteamed with Malone, who he liked as the Kings' coach.

Four-time NBA All-Star Shawn Marion told ESPN.com via text message Thursday that he intends to go through with his plans to retire after completing his 16th season.

"Hell yeah," Marion said.

The 37-year-old went unused by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the just-completed NBA Finals in his only season with the Cavs but assembled an outstanding career highlighted by a championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011.

Marion, though, is probably best known for his 8½ seasons with the Phoenix Suns, who drafted him No. 9 overall in 1999 with a draft pick they ironically acquired from Dallas in the 1998 trade that made Steve Nash a Maverick. He initially revealed his intention to retire in a January interview with the Arizona Republic.

He told the newspaper at the time that he believed he could play another two or three seasons but that being away from his first child, infant son Shawn, convinced him it was time to walk away.

"I wanted to go out on my terms," Marion told the newspaper. "The biggest thing is having a son. I got attached to him. Seeing him periodically is hard. Watching him grow up on pictures and videos is hard."

One of the league's foremost two-way players at his peak, Marion weighed retiring after leaving the Mavericks last summer but opted in the end to sign with Cleveland in hopes of winning a second ring and because of the proximity to his son, who lives in Chicago.

All four of his All-Star seasons came in Phoenix, three of them after the Suns reacquired Nash and flanked him with Marion and Amar'e Stoudemire in a revolutionary offense under coach Mike D'Antoni.

Marion's time in the desert came to an end when he was the centerpiece of a trade with Miami in 2008 that brought Shaquille O'Neal to the Suns, with a brief stint in Toronto to follow before he spent five seasons in Dallas. Marion also earned a trip to the Olympics in 2004 as a member of Team USA's bronze-medal team in Greece.

-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.

He does not deserve a max contract. Near max is honestly too much IMHO. $14 mill a year for Tristan is pushing it. Let him test the quarters, come back, and take what we offer.

obvious what he wanted and he will get it or damn close.

for a long time i thought the same thing re: thompson and love returning but i think it depends on the potential return and, of course, what lebron wants. i think if they could get a great deal for love, they'd take it, but nothing short of that.

of course the great irony would be if they traded him for like the No. 2 pick. i would STILL defend the deal, because bennett is ass juice and you move wiggins and get another stud in this year's draft instead.

and at best 96 minutes, because you can't play more than
2 of them together. and that's w/o allotting a handful of those 96
to bron, their best lineups feature him @ 4.

i mean, they do have to spend on the perimeter too. shumpert
and delly entering RFA, jr smh already says he's opting out,
they'll have to resign those guys or find replacements. i just
can't see, from a practical RoI standpoint, tying up all that guapery
up front. you could always move andy but who's taking that contract
w/o some serious sweeteners? and they're already short #1s from the moz deal.

In response to Reply # 73


  

          

My friend in Cleveland keeps insisting that "they'll find a way." He talks about Bron taking a massive paycut or some other completely impossible scenario resulting in them figuring out how to keep them a big happy family. It's delusional.

Doesn't work. Love is gone. Sign-and-trade him if possible, but it probably won't be. Keep Tristan, keep Moz, keep Shump. Let JR walk, let Delly walk.

I just can't envision a scenario in which Cleveland decides to keep Love and abandon Tristan. That's the only way it can happen.

Unless some NBA team decides to INSANELY BAIL THEM OUT by trading for Andy. That's the *only* way they can keep Love and Tristan. And I can't imagine it happening unless Gilbert has nude photos of some GM somewhere.

In response to Reply # 73


  

          

we will see what they are willing to spend but yes their situation is unwieldy. the minutes are no big deal because you can and will have injuries. If there were no cap and/or no luxury tax, I would definitely not worry about it.

Their putting Love in play is interesting, I guess they'd be looking for a serviceable perimeter player and a good pick. I would not break the bank for any of their pending FAs, as veteran minimum guys will flock to them.

77. "pierce deciding btwn wiz and clipps"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Veteran forward Paul Pierce will opt out of his $5.54 million contract, but he’s “definitely” playing next season, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post says Pierce will likely decide between the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers.

Pierce had been unsure about his return after the Wizards were eliminated by the Atlanta Hawks in the second round of the playoffs. However, it was clear the 37-year-old still had something left in the tank, and now it appears he’ll be back.

Pierce enjoyed a solid season in Washington, averaging 11.9 points and 4.0 rebounds while shooting 44.7 percent overall and 38.9 percent from three. He really shined in the postseason, hitting numerous big shots during the Wizards’ run. The veteran averaged 14.6 points while shooting 48.5 percent overall and 52.4 percent from three in the playoffs.

Washington can offer Pierce more money this offseason, as the Clippers will only be able to offer him the mini mid-level exception of about $3.38 million. However, the money might not be a big deal at this point in his career, and the allure of playing in California (where he grew up) for his former coach in Doc Rivers might be too great. Not to mention the fact the Clippers are a better team.

If Los Angeles is able to get Pierce at that price, it would be an absolute steal.

clips shoulda signed him last year but oh well, could end up being better for it having him now and also having stephenson. or the pierce we saw in these playoffs could be dead and the stephenson we saw this year could be very much alive. oh, this is the clippers we're talking about? yeah, they're fucked.

78. ""mutual interest" between wade, lakers"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

lulz

The Los Angeles Lakers might not pose much of a threat to contend for a championship (or even a playoff berth in the Western Conference) next year. The two guys on their roster with real talent – Kobe Bryant and Julius Randle – are both recovering from major injuries, and one of them will be 37 years old and taking up almost 40 percent of the salary cap.

But the Lakers, with their sunshine, 16 championships and as much as $27.8 million in cap space, offer leverage for any potential free agents looking to get a raise from their own team or a lucrative offer elsewhere.

Dwyane Wade could be one of those free agents. Wade has a player option this summer and there’s already been some scuttlebutt about Wade and the Miami Heat not seeing eye to eye about the size of a new contract.

Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix linked Wade and the Lakers with a pair of tweets on Sunday …

While many execs still see Wade/Heat as contract saber rattling, a Wade option will be the Lakers. Mutual interest, per league sources.

— Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) June 21, 2015

Hard to see LA offering Wade a better chance to win than Miami, especially in the West. But it is LA, and they do have money to burn.

— Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) June 21, 2015

At 33, Wade wouldn’t take the Lakers much beyond the Kobe era, which is set to end next April. But he would make things a little more interesting in L.A. and help the Lakers regain their status as a national TV draw.

The Heat could be one of the league’s most improved teams next season if they can bring back Wade, Luol Deng and Goran Dragic, who all have player options. But new and pricey contracts for all three would erase most of their 2016 cap space.

Maybe they floated this out there to keep Wade's price up and maybe make it too costly to keep Wade and Dragic.

They knew what it was going to take to sign him. Seems like a good fit for both sides. But by all means saddle the Lakers with what figures to be a superstar's contract for an above average player.

In response to Reply # 83


          

The thing is, I think Wade wants to get paid too. And paying Dragic makes more sense than Wade. Although, you're right, neither might be the best answer at the given rate.

Honestly, I really hope they sign Rondo and then get a film crew to follow the team all season.

Mostly, I just want the owners to pay attention to the ridiculous contracts they hand out so when the next CBA comes, they don't whine about how much money the players are making.

Wade don't like his very fair salary? PEACE with two fingers. It's not like Miami is the kind of sports town that would even notice when an icon not named Marino or LeBron leaves. They can just distribute FAN UP pamphlets with someone else's face on the cover and keep it movin.

It was pretty well-known he would not come this year. The only way Philly is taking a big (not just a big player, like DAT ZINGIS!) is if the Wolves or Lakers do something weird. Otherwise, if they are picking third, I can't see them going for Lyles, Cauley-Stein, et al.

Embiid's not going to play this year, and AB only has one guaranteed year left on his contract anyway. Do it.

What does this mean for Okafor (nothing, probably.)

http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/story/_/id/13131159/los-angeles-lakers-actively-trying-acquire-demarcus-cousins-trade-sacramento-kings

The Los Angeles Lakers have emerged as one of the most determined trade suitors for Sacramento Kings All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins, according to league sources.

Sources told ESPN that the Lakers have been actively pursuing trade scenarios in recent weeks in attempt to construct a deal that would convince the Kings to part with Cousins.

The Kings, though, continue to insist that Cousins is not available. The team's new lead decision-maker, Vlade Divac, told the Sacramento Bee in Sunday's editions that dealing away his best player "is not happening."

Sources say that the Lakers, Kings and Orlando Magic have had exploratory dialogue on a three-way Cousins trade that would land the 24-year-old in Los Angeles. All three teams hold top-6 picks in Thursday's NBA draft, and Orlando has a young top-flight center of its own in Nikola Vucevic, who could theoretically fill the Cousins void.

Yet since assuming control of the Kings' front office in April, Divac repeatedly has downplayed the idea of parting with Cousins, who has three seasons left on an extension he signed during the summer of 2013.

The Lakers would appear to have limited assets to get into the trade sweepstakes for Cousins -- in the event that Sacramento's stance changes -- beyond surrendering prized young big man Julius Randle, young guard Jordan Clarkson and the No. 2 overall pick in Thursday's draft. The Lakers, furthermore, could not legally trade the No. 2 pick until after making the selection and introducing that player as a Laker, since teams as precluded from trading first-round picks in consecutive drafts and the Lakers' 2016 first-rounder is already owed to Philadelphia.

Orlando holds the fifth pick in Thursday's proceedings but would presumably expect a lot to be willing to part with Vucevic, who signed an extension of his own last October and has become the most consistently productive player from the four-team blockbuster trade in August 2012 that sent Dwight Howard from the Magic to the Lakers.

Divac, though, told the Bee in the recent interview that his preference is to "do something, a small move, before the draft."

"We have a lot of changes to make," said Divac, whose Kings hold the sixth overall pick Thursday night. "The league is much more up-tempo now and we need more 3-point shooting. If we don't get that in the draft, we'll be active in free agency and see about making trades later in the offseason."

ESPN reported in May after the Boston Celtics' first-round elimination that the Celtics planned to be at the front of the line in terms of trying to trade for Cousins this offseason.

The Denver Nuggets have also been increasingly mentioned as a likely trade suitor for him since the hiring of former Kings coach and Cousins favorite Mike Malone as their new coach. But Denver wouldn't appear to have the sort of trade assets to rival Boston's cache of future first-round picks, which tend to become especially handy when trying to assemble multi-team trades.

I'm pretty sure we'll hear the Lakers being linked to every single free agent and any big name on the trade block.

There's zero accountability when it comes to reporting in the NBA offseason. Pre-draft especially is basically write whatever you hear anywhere.

107. "Woj says Karl wants Cuz gone"
In response to Reply # 106


          

So maybe there was more to that story than I first thought. Although the Lakers still seem like a long shot, at best.

And I love that Vivek is already annoyed with another coach.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/sources--george-karl-pushing-for-kings-to-trade-demarcus-cousins-051748948.html

Ranadive has remained the biggest Kings advocate for holding onto Cousins, and several sources indicate he has become irritated with Karl's insistence that the coach doesn't believe he can manage the supremely skilled and strong-minded star. Cousins has held a firm loyalty to former Kings coach Michael Malone, whom Ranadive fired shortly into last season. Under Karl, that relationship couldn't begin to be duplicated in the final weeks of the season.

Karl and members of the Kings front office have made it clear to opposing team executives and coaches that they hope to soon have a formal ownership authorization to actively shop Cousins, sources said. Kings officials, including Karl, have discussed potential deals informally with other teams, but no other front office has felt comfortable that any deal can happen until Ranadive is fully on board.

For now, the Kings are pursuing trade scenarios for everyone on the roster, including talented forward Rudy Gay, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Sacramento officials believe it will be difficult to find a trade partner that can give the Kings the value it wants for Cousins – and has a better chance to find a deal for Gay, sources said.

The Los Angeles Lakers have had significant interest with Cousins, but their No. 2 overall pick isn't as appealing to the Kings as finding a deal that includes established, veteran players. Ranadive doesn't want to rebuild with a move into a new arena on the horizon, and Karl is chasing Don Nelson's all-time NBA career victories record. Karl's interest isn't in cultivating long-term assets, but rather compiling as many victories as possible in the near future.

In response to Reply # 106


  

          

I once had a GM tell me a trade was not happening that ALREADY HAPPENED. During practice, I got a text from the player's agent saying he had been traded, this was probably 10:20 or 10:30. Just before the practice ended at 11, I saw the GM and asked him to confirm. He said there had been no trade and he couldn't comment on negotiations. If you think he dogged me out, he told the same thing to the writer for the team's website and even yelled at him about it (uncharacteristic given their relationship). Maybe an hour later, he was on national radio talking about the trade lol.

But yeah this deal is not happening! The only way it would be if Sac could get the two picks and Vuc and then what the hell does Orlando get? As reported it is a laughably stupid trade where the Lakers give it to both teams up the dook shoot. Of course that happened in the Howard trade, but there was at least some lube involved there.

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

that the Kings are willing to give up Demarcus Cousins? The front office had to know Karl wanted to get rid of him when they hired him. Pretty wild to want to part ways with a young dominant big man, but perhaps the Kings know something I don't.

But the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing there. Divac is openly saying no trade, karl is BTS taking trade offers while trying to sell mgmt, and vivek wants a 4 on 5 circus. Aye aye aye...

No time soon, but I think he ends up in denver w malone.

you think Karl went in there telling them everything he was gonna change? He went in there telling them exactly what they wanted to hear so he could get a job. Now he's got it he's trying to pull a power move.

213. "WOJ - Boogie Talks: Vlade wants everything and more"
In response to Reply # 104


          

"Kings vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac has pursued a possible deal that would include a bevvy of assets, including the Lakers' No. 2 pick in Thursday's NBA draft, rookies Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson and other draft assets, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Sacramento also would want to unload the remainder of forward Carl Landry's two years, $13.5 million contract, league sources said."

"Minimally, the Lakers have no intention of including Randle in a deal for Cousins, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Randle, a power forward, was the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft and missed most of his rookie season after leg surgery. The Lakers are reluctant to part with Clarkson too, sources said."


And Vivek coming off as bitter about the guy he screwed over to cause this whole mess.

"Sacramento owner Vivek Ranadive has been unwilling to discuss a deal to send Cousins to Denver, where Sacramento's former coach, Michael Malone, and former general manager, Pete D'Alessandro, have been recently hired, sources said. Denver has had interest in a three-way deal that would land Cousins with the Lakers and possibly deliver the Kings several players – including point guard Ty Lawson – who Karl has expressed a desire to be reunited with in Sacramento, sources said."

-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.

Surprised to see Smart being offered since all reports are that AInge loves him but the ridiculousness of the offer seems about what it would take for them to move him.

Ha!...True....But lets be real...Apart, Boogie and Connect Four are quite volatile but can do work in certain situations...But those guys together on the same team in the NBA? Nah...that's a shit show waiting to happen....

On the real though, Cousins just needs to go to a team without any head cases...I hope he gets to a place where he can truly flourish...That kid is too good to be stamped as a knucklehead....

I'll take B-Mac and Nik...WCS hustles hard....But don't know if I want Rondo on my team...Way too selfish for my taste....He's poison at this point....

But regardless, Cousins needs to get away from Sacramento quick fast...Karl is too big of an asshole to make anything work at this point....Everybody seems to hate that dude...lol

I mean Rose didn't defiantly shit on a coach that also has a ring, stormed off on some MY BALL silliness and had his own teammates freeze him out of that playoff loot, did he?

U keep thinking I'm taking cheap shots at Rondo when basically EVERYBODY not named the Lakers and Sac Town r leery of dude....

Rose doesn't have a history of being a first grade selfish asshole....His only sin is he's tragically injury prone with horrible knees...Because of Rose's injury history I would be willing to to see what the Bulls could get for Pooh coming off of a good post season when all the wheeling and dealing starts....

One player is not bigger than my team.....

Oh and he's won a championship as well. So there's that.

Nobody cares about your bum ass 30 game playing shoot first locked down by Delly sitting out 4 quarters for impromptu spin class session still doesn't know how to make players better while losing his athleticism staring at Age 30 with the same fright he stares at multi-syllabic words point guard.

>Doesn't mean he's selfish.


I'm going to stop u here ^^^^ because u not being real about a player u clearly have a bias for, my dude...

To me the bar isn't whether or not a player gets along with his coach...Bron is one of the most respected players in the league and dude basically treated his first year coach like the help...Jordan got Doug Collins fired...Magic? The same....A lot of players don't get along with their coach...

The issue with Rondo is he had a negative impact on a team that was pretty much on an offensive tear....He pouted because he didn't get his way. And he literally quit on his team. When your own teammates vote to not give u playoff loot because u quit on your squad that's not the same as simply having issues with your coach...

And a ring doesn't help when your shooting has gotten significantly worse in a league in which PG's r now asked to play perimeter oriented...

Rondo is far from being washed up. He can def. find himself again. But he has to turn down that my-way-or-the-highway attitude he has. That doesn't look good when u r struggling to shoot foul shots as a PG...

As for your Rose hit doggin' I don't get it....See, THAT'S a cheap shot....If Rondo was coming off of three knee surgeries trust me....I wouldn't be going at it like that...lol....That was some taking a gun to a pillow fight type shit u just pulled.....

GOAT of his era......long live Prince.....God is alive....

I mean, this shit is all moot now.....There's no way Cousins will stay in Sacramento...He's out with all this Karl madness happening...If Rondo goes to the Kings he will be passing the ball to himself....

Yeah, if we wind up getting next year's pick back out of this I say to hell with Boogie. I'd talk to Orlando about Vucevic and 5 for the 2, 27, next year's pick plus anyone but Julius and take whoever remains between Mudiay and Porzingus.

nope.

-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.

I don't think a story like that gets out unless the front office wanted it and wanted to send a message to Monta.

Also, it makes sense for Monta. He's got one big contract left and at his age, I don't think he can wait for the cap to make the bigger leap.

That being said, it's a shame that it didn't work in Dallas because that still seems like the best fit for him.

Not sure what Cleveland will have after they pay Tristan (I'm betting they let Love walk) but they could certainly use a dynamic scoring 2 guard. If SA misses out on Aldridge Monte would be a nice piece for them.

288. "He would fit well in San Antonio. "
In response to Reply # 170


  

          

He could play alongside Parker or be a strong contributor while Parker rests.

He's great at some aspects of the game that Parker is (can get to the rim and finish, decent mid-range game). Monta isn't the passer Parker is, but he seems to try more on defense if the word around is right about him.

I couldn't see Monta in Cleveland, if only because there wouldn't be enough shots for LeBron, Kyrie, Tristan, AND Monta. If Love decides to return than he would be the odd man out.

Dallas was / is the best fit for him. He's able to lead their offense and free up space for Dirk and everyone else because of his ability to get by his defender. He was viewed as a leader in the locker room and his liabilities were actually an asset to them.

Ironically he'd be great in Oakland if he'd be willing to be their heat-check guy off the bench. Maybe also in Atlanta too, since they need a player who can get his own shot, something that would have helped against the Cavs in the playoffs.

236. "I guess he won't help them (traded to Charlotte)"
In response to Reply # 176


  

          

The Memphis Grizzlies are in the process of completing a trade with the Charlotte Hornets for Matt Barnes, according to league sources.

The Grizzlies will acquire Barnes from Charlotte for veteran point guard Luke Ridnour, whom Memphis acquired Tuesday from Orlando, sources said.

Furthermore, the Grizzlies intend to keep Barnes, sources said. Only $1 million of Barnes' $3.5 million salary is guaranteed if he's waived before Wednesday, but Memphis wants Barnes for perimeter depth.

The Hornets have been busy this offseason.

They acquired Barnes earlier this month in the trade that sent Lance Stephenson to the Los Angeles Clippers. Charlotte also acquired Nicolas Batum from the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

Barnes, 35, is in the final year of his contract. He averaged 10.1 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists while starting 74 games for the Clippers in 2014-15.

Barnes, however, wore out his welcome in Los Angeles, as his on-court temper and penchant for getting fined constantly irked head coach and president of basketball operations Doc Rivers, who had been looking to deal him for about two years.

The 34-year-old Ridnour, meanwhile, averaged 4.0 points and 2.0 assists while playing 47 games for the Magic last season.

The 14th overall pick in the 2003 draft, Ridnour is now joining his seventh NBA team. He has career averages of 9.3 points, 4.5 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game.

Sadly Barnes may actually *improve* their perimeter shooting, that's how wack they were from outside last year, hell for years running now. Mike Miller and Shane Battier ain't walking through that door.

254. "And now Ridnour's on the move AGAIN"
In response to Reply # 248


  

          

He was on the last Sonics team and was traded after they announced the move to OKC. Now he's finally going to play for them, unless he's traded again.

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/13146622/memphis-grizzlies-acquire-matt-barnes-charlotte-hornets-luke-ridnour

Ridnour didn't stay in Charlotte long, as the Hornets traded him and a conditional 2016 second-round draft pick Thursday to the Thunder for guard Jeremy Lamb. That deal comes just a day after Ridnour was traded by the Orlando Magic to the Grizzlies.

I also think in his mind he legitimately thinks he could be the #1 on a contender.

This is actually great for the Cavs. It sucks that they traded away Wiggins to borrow Love for a season (and 4 playoff games), but Love isn't what they need. They have scoring, they need more defensive-minded bigs, and this frees up cap space to give Tristan what he wants.

If the Cavs r smart they talk Love into a sign & trade....They can get a nice bounty for him...Right now they just need bodies that can make an open shot and add some depth. Call up Ainge and get it poppin'. As a Bulls fan though I hope they keep Love. Because it will def. hold them back on the cap end of things...

With the imminent return of OKC to the play-off picture and teams like the Suns and the Jazz possibly on the come-up, maybe they figure they're better off doing a rebuild.

Like you said, makes no sense unless it's part of a new re-build. Gonna be real, real hard to watch Blazers next year if there's no LaMarcus or Nic. Neither of those guys incoming are going to fill the swiss army knife sized gap Nic will leave behind him.

boo.

Did Vonleh come alive at the end of the year? He seemed like a bust when I saw him. Don't get this deal at all for PDX. Stunner.

In response to Reply # 202


  

          

Jorn collecting him some wing players this summer.

So far I like what the Hornets have done. Addition by subtraction exiling Stillborn and now they get a very good, very versatile player for a lesser wing and an iffy big prospect.

That said, I am sure they will turn around and draft some hot ass garbage like always now. How will they blow it? Maybe drafting Dekker ninth? That seems like their style.

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

In response to Reply # 204


          

They still need shooting. Need a guard even more now that Hendo is gone.

Although I wonder if this move makes them more likely to deal the pick and try to win now. Booker or Myles/Lyle make sense but none of them seem ready to help from Day 1.

210. "After the initial shock, it makes more sense."
In response to Reply # 204
Wed Jun-24-15 09:47 PM by SoulHonky

          

I've always overvalued Nic so the initial shock kind of shaded my take on it.

Charlotte rolls the dice on giving up a lotto pick after one year for potentially one year of Batum.

And I'm guessing that Portland sees the writing on the wall, doesn't expect LaMarcus back and rolled the dice on Vonleh who might be all that Nic on an expiring deal could fetch.

Could be a tank year in Portland. Let everyone else overspend this offseason and make moves next year.

221. "think I'm being perfectly fair saying Nic's an approximation of Iguodola"
In response to Reply # 210


  

          

who just won Finals MVP. He's a ball-mover on offense, (last season aside) he's a floor-spacer with his shot, and he can be the lynchpin of defensive schemes, guarding 1-3. He can guard Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker in the same game, Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis, Kevin Love, LeBron, or Kyrie Irving. AND he's still young.

I get that he's not as strong as Iguodola and he's more inconsistent than Iguodola, but the Blazers starting five has been one of the best five-man units in the NBA over the last two years and that's been with Nic playing 36+ minutes a night. There are very few teams in the NBA that couldn't find a use for a player like him.

Which makes me really wonder about LaMarcus, because why break up a five man unit you know is strong in order to get a middling rotation guy and a project pick? You just unloaded Thomas Robinson for nothing, now you're dying to repeat the experience? Maybe they need the cap space, maybe they just wanted to move the expiring deal sooner rather than later? I dunno, I'm considerably less interested in Blazers basketball next year with this one roster move alone...

That having been said, I really liked what I saw at Indiana. Won't know for at least another two years what he'll be. IMO, a good get from a long-term rebuild potential standpoint.

209. "Pacers' David West turns down money for new fit (swipe)"
In response to Reply # 0

Insider: Pacers' David West turns down money for new fit
Candace Buckner
9:08 p.m. EDT June 24, 2015

The Indiana Pacers are losing their rock.

David West has decided not to exercise the $12.6 million option of his contract for the 2015-16 season, league sources informed The Indianapolis Star on Wednesday. West, who turns 35 in August, will become a free agent this summer for the first time since 2011, when he made the surprising choice to join the young and rising Pacers over the Big Three in Boston.

And from that first snarl, that first swished jumper from the elbow, that very first 'He's a 'baaaaaad man!' bellowed throughout Bankers Life Fieldhouse during player introductions, West has been the cornerstone of the team.

"He's our rock," was how coach Frank Vogel described West after his 24-point performance shepherded the Pacers through a first-round elimination game against the Atlanta Hawks in 2014.

"There's no other way to put it."

West produced his lowest scoring average in nearly a decade (11.7 points per game) but remained the most respected player and voice in the Pacers' locker room. That leader will now search for a new home.

"He has the passion for (basketball)," a source responded when asked about West's wish list for his next destination. "He wants to play. … It's going to be an intellectual decision."

West made up his mind Tuesday, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. With the tread of 12 seasons in the league on his body, West will not command the same salary that would've been waiting for him next season with the Pacers. The choice appears to be more about finding a new fit. West did not want to simply "stay for the money," a source revealed.

During the Pacers' injury-decimated 2014-15 season, the unfamiliar sting of constant defeat often weighed on West. The Pacers advanced to the Eastern Conference finals in two (2013, 2014) of his four seasons with the team. However, the team played nearly all of last entire season without its star, Paul George, players combined to miss 219 games and the team employed 14 different starting lineups. West missed the first 15 games of the year with a sprained right ankle.

No surprise that this instability led to an up-and-mostly-down season.

As the team languished through a December losing streak, West – the Pacer who pulled no punches – answered as honest as possible when asked how he felt about dropping eight straight games at this stage in his career.

"It's (lousy). It's not fun, but you've got to be professional and you've got to keep preparing," West said then. "It's just not something we've been accustomed to doing since I've been here. We've had that mantra of … going in every night, expecting to win the ball game and knowing that we're the better team. I think just that attitude forces you to prepare a certain way, forces you to get on the floor, you take the floor differently and we're trying to find that."

Nevertheless, West's decision strikes two ways. Counting West, seven players from last year's roster will become free agents and his decision gives the Pacers more spare change to try to lure veterans to the heartland.

Furthermore, starting center Roy Hibbert also has a player option for next season, though he has yet to make his intentions public. Hibbert has until Monday to inform the Pacers. If Hibbert declines the option, his departure combined with West's, would free up more than $27 million in salary.

So after the July 1 start of free agency, the Pacers can look very different. This, however, may not be a reason to celebrate.

When West came to Indiana four years ago, he was then, as he is now, an iron-willed veteran. More than the money and the market in Boston, West picked Indiana unlike other big-name free agents because he wanted to help build something special.

Last year, Pacers assistant coach Dan Burke shared a story with The Star about West's first year in the league. It was Nov. 21, 2003, Rick Carlisle was still the coach and the Pacers played a game in New Orleans. West barely got off the bench that year, playing only 13 minutes a night, but the Hornets trailed by one point and needed to execute a last-second play. So, the rookie walked onto the court.

"They put this kid in. 'Who the hell is this guy?'" Burke said, recalling his memory. "They put him in and they ran a back screen for him for a lob. He caught it kinda low and he got it up to the rim and it came out. I remember sitting there watching him and you could tell he was devastated he let his teammates down but he had tightness in his jaw and got up and got off the floor. I'm thinking, 'This kid has some composure, some quiet confidence.'

"That play didn't make it and most guys would be – " said Burke, as he imitated someone overly pretended to be disappointed. "We all know you missed it, you don't have to do all that but (West) just got up and walked off. I know he was devastated. …To think of that kid who they're running a lob play for and look at the rock of our team now, what a difference."

if he left the Pacers before Hibbert. I like David West to an extent, but he's up there in age and has been banged up in recent times.


Good luck getting that paper, Mr. West.

but he's always throwing random shit out there and seeing reactions. this is what he does.

plus, i think the point was not that those would be the big three (LMAO at that idea) but that it'd be a Love centric team. Pierce and Lopez are good compliments to what Love brings, plus what the celtics have. (that's horseshit. but i'm trying).

but i'd rather stick to youth than that.

Kings vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac has pursued a possible deal that would include a bevvy of assets, including the Lakers' No. 2 pick in Thursday's NBA draft, rookies Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson and other draft assets, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Sacramento also would want to unload the remainder of forward Carl Landry's two years, $13.5 million contract, league sources said.

That's the only way I do that deal if I'm Sacramento...Call the Lakers' bluff....Because there's no way I would want to see Cousins in LA as a Kings representative...But if it has to be done u might as well try to bleed the Lakers for everything they got...

... I don't see why they'd give up two talented pieces on rookie contracts.

I'd rather have Randle, Clarkson, Jah/D'Angelo, and Aldridge than Cousins and three bums.

No fool at all....Lakers got loot and r a legendary franchise....We can clown Kobe's delusional ass all we want because it's fun and much of it true....But that has NOTHING to do with the Lakers being the Lakers....They seem to always find a way to retool.....

GOAT of his era......long live Prince.....God is alive....

226. "99.9% chance Aldridge leaves Portland (SWIPE)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Lakers are the only team here that doesn't really make sense to me.

http://espn.go.com/losangeles/nba/story/_/id/13145694/portland-trail-blazers-growing-belief-forward-lamarcus-aldridge-leave-team-free-agency

LaMarcus Aldridge is not expected to re-sign with the Portland Trail Blazers, several people close to the All-Star forward told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

And Wednesday's trade of forward Nicolas Batum was an indication, league sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein, of Portland's growing belief that Aldridge is poised to leave in free agency.

"He's gone," a source close to Aldridge said. "There's a 99.9 percent chance that he's out of Portland."

The sources listed several reasons Aldridge is expected to leave the Blazers, for whom he has played since entering the league in 2006. They said he doesn't believe the Blazers can attract top free agents to improve the team, that he feels somewhat underappreciated by the organization and that he simply is looking for a new environment to live in.

Sources told Stein that the Blazers have been pressing for more concrete signals from Aldridge's camp about his plans before the July 1 start of free agency and are ‎increasingly fearful they have little chance of retaining the All-Star big man once he hits the open market.

On the list of teams Aldridge will consider signing with are the San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks, sources said. Aldridge is actually thinking more and more about a free-agent jump to the Lakers, sources told Stein this week.

The Lakers, sources added to Stein, firmly believe they now will be in the Aldridge hunt. As ESPN.com first reported ‎Monday, Lakers officials also continue to try to press the Sacramento Kings to trade them All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins.

The Spurs, sources say, continue to be Aldridge's most likely destination.

"He has tons of respect for coach Popovich," one source told Broussard. "And he thinks highly of their organization and front office."

The Spurs will have to be creative with their salary structure to offer Aldridge a max deal beginning at $18.8 million while retaining stars Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili.

Sources also say there is a rising sentiment the Lakers have edged past the Mavericks on Aldridge's wish list despite the fact that he was a high school star in Dallas.

San Antonio is likewise familiar ground to Aldridge after he played collegiately at Texas in nearby Austin.

The Lakers' and Knicks' hopes of landing Aldridge likely will depend on who they select in Thursday's draft, trade for or sign in free agency. Aldridge lives near Los Angeles in the offseason and has been there this week, sources told Broussard.

A long-shot candidate for Aldridge would be the Cleveland Cavaliers, who likely would have to execute a sign-and-trade with Kevin Love. Love opted out of his Cavaliers contract Wednesday and is from Oregon.

As ESPN.com reported earlier Wednesday, Portland is expected to make its own hard push in free agency for Love, should Aldridge leave town.

The Blazers created an additional $4 million of potential ‎salary-cap space by ‎shipping Batum to Charlotte for Gerald Henderson and Noah Vonleh and have been well set up by general manager Neil Olshey to have the flexibility to go in a variety of directions if they need to respond to an Aldridge defection.

Atlanta also is on Aldridge's list, as he believes he could potentially form a strong frontcourt tandem with Hawks center Al Horford.

Sources told Stein that Portland plans to be very aggressive in July in trying to convince star guard Damian Lillard to commit to a five-year max extension in the $120 million range.

229. "San Antonio has always been the team that makes the most sense"
In response to Reply # 226


  

          

LaMarcus often cites Tim Duncan as the player he looked up to most when he was younger, LaMarcus has often spoke of free agency in terms of "I don't know, but I do think I can be part of a contender," the pairing with Kawhi Leonard is basically as good (or better) as any other organization (DAL, HOU, LA) can offer, Tim Duncan gets to assume the David Robinson role as they introduce LA into the Spurs fold, Patty Mills is an ex-teammate, supposedly LaMarcus has two kids in Texas, one being in San Antonio. Totally anecdotal, but for whatever reason LaMarcus has played some of his best games of his career against the Spurs (postseason aside). He just seems like a guy who's motivated by things besides just money and being able to be in the hottest VIP clubs. I've never put much stock into any of the rumors except for San Antonio, who I thought, honestly, LaMarcus would be crazy to turn down...

smh

-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.

246. "Soft is a bit much "
In response to Reply # 240


  

          

because he's capable of grabbing rebounds from what I've seen, but I think his suspect defense would give Five Ring General Poppavich umbrage, at least from the limited action I've seen from him.

I personally don't like him because like you said he mainly shoots jumpers and I prefer a big man operate in the paint on the offensive end, but you have to bang somewhat to grab rebounds as well as he does.

a free flowing offense would get lma much easier looks as well.

Percentage would be above 50% easy

And opponents FG% at the rim against LA is one of the lowest marks in the league.

You don't watch him play, it's okay to admit it.

In response to Reply # 226


  

          

The Portland front office has to hold the other teams feet to the fire and demand everything but the kitchen sink just off GP, no? Crazy that both Aldridge and Cousins are both in flux. I hope Cousins comes to the East so I can see him play more.

Portland has no say unless a team with no cap space wants him in a sign-and-trade.

especially since they are out West. At least they still have Lillard, but that team is going to stink terribly assuming Aldridge leaves, and even worse they'll get nothing in return.
