1 year vet min? To go play 12 MPG.


And likely even less playoff minutes since he's an utter disaster in high(er) stakes situations

Sounds exactly like a vet min type of guy honestly

For the 2021 season, Reggie Jackson will make more than twice the combined salaries of Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond.

And Luke Kennard is making more than any of them.

The Clippers extending Kennard before he played a regular season game for them was one of dumbest front office moves I’ve ever heard of.
Stay low for Paolo!

I remember posting, or at least thinking, “Luke for 4 years at $15 million per us to good to pass up”

Thank god that dark time is over

And there it is. Rose getting paid more than Reggie. That's fairly ridiculous at every angle

I’m pretty sure he’s an owner. (Just googled) they are called the “Gold” now and yes he’s the owner

GR Gold? That's not a name that I would've took. Seems...tacky?

They are affiliated with the nuggets now. Gold and Nuggets, get it. Still seems lazy

Makes a ton of sense. Still strange with how far away they are from Denver

Pistons and Cruise are in the same neighborhood, those two are time zones away. You figure they’ll eventually move them to Colorado at some point.

I was cruising the Cavs board just to see what reactions were to news Love wasn't interested in being bought out.

I tripped upon talk of the guard combo of Darius Garland and Colin Sexton being referred to as 'Sexland'. The third grader in me couldn't stop giggling.

This is why we can't have nice things :) .

The Bulls have signed Stanley Johnson and Tyler Cook to contracts. I realize both are probably camp deals, but if I was a Bulls fan….well I’m glad I’m not. I kind of would like to see their experiment work. But the more I look at what Chicago is doing, the more I see a 4th-6th seed who gets taken out in the first round.

You and me both, although I would think that 4-6th seed is generous.

That team is the definition of Frankensteins monster.

They remind me of the Pistons the year they made the playoffs with Andre, KCP, e.t.c.

Absolutely no hope of actually doing anything of note.

Just checking in to see if Wall to the Pistons trade has been proposed yet on this board. I give it an over/under of 2.5 hours since the 'news' was posted at here:

Oh for the love of God no...

Not sure what king's ransom of picks I'd want to take that guy on, but doubtless it's more than Houston would expect to give up. And we don't even really have filler- it's not like we can trade Griffin's dead cap or anything like that.

Anyone else slightly concerned we might be the mystery small market team who put in a bid on Ben Simmons?
