they wont be able to resign Morris IMO so gota find replacement for him too

They can pay $18 million next year, he is the perfect fit at PF, I dont see why they dont bring him back.

The easy answers is fire Doc. It's been a constant issue with his teams and clearly will not change.

Other than that, they're kind of stuck in a lot of ways. They should be looking to buy as many picks as they can with Ballmer's money to add some depth instead of handing guys like Morris big deals.

No thanks.

Think the value is there and fair but don't see the Dubs/Clips helping each other as divisional foes.

Why do the Wiz want PG if they’re rebuilding?

I think GSW would def do it and LAC would as long as Kawhi is cool w it. I think theyd be confident enough in their own improvement that they wouldnt be worried about how theyre helping the other. The wet blanket thrower in this case is WAS. I think this is fair value for Beal but shaking him loose from WAS this offseason will be nigh on impossible IMO. They seem to be clinging to Wall-Beal fantasies

For all the talk about how centres are getting devalued in the modern game: if you don't have someone who can match up with Jokic or AD, you're going to have a hard time getting out of the West.

Today was just a bricklaying competition (PG and Kawhi combined for 10-for-38...ewwww) and I wouldn't necessarily overreact to that. But they do need help at the point and they do need upgrades in the power rotation.

I keep coming back to something like this:

Clippers S&T Morris to Philadelphia (say $17M/per), S&T Harrell (say $14M/per) to some team preferably that has capspace (someone can toss in a 2nd for the favour), in exhange for Horford and Rose
Sixers trade Horford and future protected 1st for S&T Morris, ~$10M TPE. They would have to worry about the hard cap but they do reduce salary too.
Team X gets Harrell for free, maybe sends small expirings back if they have to, or can get tipped a 2nd if they use all capspace.
Pistons trade Rose, get capspace or expirings from Team X, plus the pick from Philly.

The amount each guy gets paid in the S&T could vary; as long as the total is over $30.2M in year 1, the matching works.

Would it put Wizards over the edge to say yes if they didn’t have to eat Wiggins contract, so got huge draft value and massive savings? The math works in which Clippers take on Wiggins. With that in mind, do Rockets join in Western conference foes being trading partners...

Warriors Give: #2 + Wiggins + Looney + Poole + Wolves 2021 + 2022 1st
Warriors Get: George + Zubac + Gordon (via Iggy TPE)

Rockets Give: Harden + Gordon + Tucker
Rockets Get: Lou Williams + Poole + Looney + #2 + 2021 Wolves 1st + 2022 Warriors 1st
Rockets Reasoning: rebuild package for Harden with about 49MM in instant salary savings. One could say George to Rockets makes more sense, but he would be flight risk in Houston and paired with Westbrook would just kick the can down the road for needed rebuild with non-championship roster.

Clippers Give: George + Lou Williams + Zubac
Clippers Get: Harden + Wiggins + Tucker
Clippers Reasoning: Kawhi gets Harden. Wiggins becomes Clippers new scoring 6th man.

Kawhi should've stayed in Toronto. That team is so much more well built than the Clippers. Rockets and Clippers are over their heads into star chasing and now they're a mess. Nobody does star chasing like LeBron.

Well said. I seriously can't understand why PG always fails in the playoffs.

Beverly and Green to Atlanta for Dedmon, Atl plays the field for a back up center to Cappela, -Noel, Kanter, Len, Thompsun etc. Atlanta needs a Def guard next to Tre and a banger to back up Collins at the 4. Green's range up to 3PT, will be appreciated. The clippers get a 5, that has shown some range.

This pretty much guarantees the Warriors a 2nd dynasty. Clippers would not do this as it guarantees their ceiling is WCF in a best case scenario.
