How about giving up KCP, Shroder, Caruso, and THT for Kyrie?

Lol. Sure, but only if we can include AD, LBJ and Kuzma to shed even more talent for that no-D ball hog.

So if Houston is in rebuild mode, are they willing to part ways with Tucker? I see him as a good fit for us.

Nets don't currently scare me. I'll need to see how their defense plays out and how their isoball works in the playoffs.

I am not concerned at all about the Nets. That team is a recipe for disaster. That Big 3 is toxic, ball-dominant, plays no defense and is aging and showing health concerns. Their depth is also depleted, I don't see anyone playing defense on that roster except maybe veteran DeAndre Jordan. I just can't see them beating the Sixers, Celtics or Bucks in a 7-game series.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Unless he gets signed by another team and then released again..Which aint gonna happen.

What about Drummond? He seems to be a cheap pick up. Assuming he plays within his role which he has been having trouble.

Nah, he was used at center for the rockets but can defend multiple spots and shoot the three. Sure we need a tall backup center but we also need a guy that is similar to what DG was for us last year. Who are we gonna have defending against the Kahwi’s, the KDs, and the Jimmy Butlers of the league?

We're a better Defensive and Offensive team because Dwight & McGee left by every measure now. Why would we wanna go back to that the 90s again?

We need more 3&D wings to defend the modern 1-4 . Tucker & Justin Holiday still my favourite trade targets for Kuz + salary fillers.

I read something that meant that we won't have the cap space to be able to resign Caruso(12m) / THT(18m) next year, after the Kuz extension kicks in, which just isn't happening. Those two are #3 & #4 most important players on this roster after Bron & AD.

I Read game threads on other boards at times for comedic relief. And I read a comment we can all enjoy...
I Love how Brook Lopez makes Zero attempt to get rebounds.....Lol
