Hayward didn’t do much for them.

Teague and Thompson are aging and declining.

Neutral moves for Celts IMO. Ainge will swing for a trade at the deadline.


Tristan Thompson is only 29 years old and should be able to help with the Celtics rebounding.

Jeff Teague will be a backup and I bet he'll be okay in that role.

Ah it was a joke. I do know plenty who moved back, generally cause of cost of living. And true, Pau and Corie Blount - lol.

But alas, I do think LAL gambled on Davis with the big trade, he gambled on Lebron’s age, it worked out, and from here on out, i just don’t see a reason for him to leave until he’s on the decline, at which point I don’t care to see him in red.

Thats idea. Nobody is coming to Chicago actually good


And that is why the previous regime had to go. GarPax was said to have a negative reputation among the players around the league. That's the battle AKME has to fight right now, the changing of the perception of the Bulls organization.

I don't see a star coming to Chicago right now but who knows what will happen in two years. A lot of things can and will change.

Maybe eventually. But for that we still need to build ourselves good team without FA help. They are not the core and they will never be the core. Even if superstar one day signs for Bulls. Please guys remember. They didnt come here because we necessarily needed help. We still build a team through draft worthy of them to consider join. They come here because THEY needed help.

That's why I dont appreciate much bandwagoners and all those star players who follow Lebron's footsteps. Regardless what result and success together we accomplish. That's why Durant will never be great Golden State Warriors player and Curry, Klay, Draymond, even Iggy will always be ahead of him. Same goes for Raptors. Kawhi is maybe greatest player who wore their jersey, but that Lowry and guys will be ahead of him.

Harrell was garbage when it counted most, elite fake tough guy tho


Also, many of the Clipper fans believe he was behind the leaks around the team. He had to go.

It's something about players when they join Klutch Sports. They turn into divas, they begin giving their current teams a hard time, the team's dirt suddenly gets spread out into the open, and they start cheerleading for Bron. Draymond Green has been acting the same way. He probably would have joined the Lakers if AD didn't get poisoned too.

Pippen came back for the last year. Grant, Kukoc and Pax worked or the org after their careers.

Looks like Hawks are trying to sign Bogdanovic as well. They’re not signing the greatest players but they are at least getting deeper and trying to make a playoff push for Trae’s 3rd season. Also gives them flexibility to package some of these signings with one of their young pieces to bring in a legitimate star maybe next offseason. I like it for them.

Bucks adding versatile defender Torrey Craig and good guard Bryn Forbes, along with starter Jrue Holiday, and two more bench players in DJ Augustin,former Bull Bobby Portis -- soo I think they have solid team now for EC win and spot in the finals! But I will be rooting for HEAT once Bulls are out...

Holiday, Di Vincenzo, Middleton, Giannis, Lopez
Augustin, Forbes, Korver?, Connaughton, Craig, DJ Wilson, Portis

Vs Heat :
Dragic, Butler, Robinson, Olynyk, Adebayo
Nunn, Herro, A.Bradley, Igoudala?, Harkless, Achiowa, Haslem, M.Leonard

Bogdan Bogdanovic has signed an offer sheet from the Hawks on a contract worth $72 million over four seasons according to Marc Stein of the New York Times. Wow...that's a bargain. Kings should match. That contract could net them a good player via trade if they don't keep him.

Just 72/4???

The Kings are INSANE if they don't match. With all the crazy deals flying around, I'm shocked that someone didn't give Bogey at least 20 mil per.

I mean... even Joe Harris got 75/4. He's a great shooter, but Bogdanovic can run your team too.

I think making a push for the playoffs is the right move for the Hawks, but I'm not sold on Rondo and I question Gallinari's health. Bogdanovic would be a good signing for them.

Jontay Porter got 3 years 6 mill. Why didn't we get him?

3 years. Bulls arent shelling long term deals to a guy with zero NBA minutes. And with injury history like his we stayed away for a reason.

Long term deals are desirable when the money per year is that low.

Worst case scenario you cut a player and eat $2 million. Best case you have an actual valuable asset on a dirt cheap deal.

Forgot to mention we are still really young team. We have too many players waiting in line to develop and focus on. Adding another player with zero experience does not do much for us. Bulls will likely look to add vet big man on one year deal similar to Temple if they need big.

Jontay is a better young prospect than at least Kornet and Felicio. Possibly Gafford too.

And there's not a limit on the number of players you can develop anyway.

And if we are going with the "2 max slots next summer" thing, I'm on board. But then why haven't we traded Thad and Sato for expiring bags of Doritos yet?
