just some food for thought since previously, it looked like he was assuredly playing his way into a contract after Blake’s buyout.


Once they announced that, I felt they’d keep him a two way for the rest of the season.

Basically they would have to open up more roster spots and/or find someone they really wanted to add on a two way contract.

Someone needs to let the Rockets know that it’s still possible and at least occasionally advisable to score more points than the other team.

Wood and wall are coming back soon, but look at their lineups of late. They are basically fielding a summer league team.

That and Oladipo pretty transparently wants to be anywhere but there and his play of late has reflected that.

It’ll be interesting to see what they field post deadline, you almost feel bad for wall and Wood

Rockets got a late first for PJ Tucker.

Is it really that big a sellers market? PJ Tucker has been awful this year.

The way I see it it's even worse value to Houston. The deal was really good for Milwaukee.

They eat Augustine terrible deal and gave up an early 2nd + PJ Tucker for a late 1st.

To make the deal work they had to swap Milwaukee's 22 1st for a 23.

The only scary part for Milwaukee is that the 23 1st is unprotected, and they're terrible without Giannis (that could possibly be the #1 pick if Giannis misses thhe entire 2023 season, which is unlikely but you never know)

Bucks are nowhere near the worst team in the league without Giannis, vege. Middleton, DDV, Jrue, Lopez, Portis... heck, if they knew Giannis would miss a year and had time to change their approach, that roster could probably finish .500 in the east.

DDV is bad and Lopez declined badly. Middleton and Jrue are good.

The Bucks are gonna have to retain Jrue this off-season no matter what though.

That's a Max or close to it deal on their books in addition to Giannis and Middleton

If I'm a Bucks fan I look at the roster and wonder how they can upgrade from here.

It's a tax paying team for sure, spending exceptions only and hunting the bargain bin.

Throw in the coaching issue they obviously have and you gotta wonder how long it'll last.

LeBron and Davis out for some time.
Lakers have 30 games left, they can quickly go 10-20 in that stretch to finish 38-34 (52,78%). They would currently be 8th in the West with that victory pourcentage.

What's your opinion on them, will they stay in the top 6, play the play-in (7th to 10th) or completely fall out of the playoffs?

He played 15 minutes, had 2 points, 2 boards and a block, and still looks slow as molasses.

But...he dunked!

Surely this is proof that he's secretly still been an all star the whole time and was dogging it the whole time with us.

Got to defend Beal one on one and got a block. I’m not impressed, I’m embarrassed for Beal.

Orlando is staking claim on the EC cellar with these trades. Their tank is tankier than our tank.
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

lou williams got traded for rondo, maybe that opens minutes up for kennard? he's only playing 19 MPG this season (14 MPG in march) but he is shooting 48% from 3.

Chicago won the day, acquiring Vuc. They are now suddenly a formidable eastern conference contender.

And LAC takes silver in acquiring Rondo. They finally have not only a floor general, but the floor general. They are a true threat to take the west now.
