So if Ariza had a trade kicker he'd be up to the max now? :D

Thunder have already made deals involving 12 other teams this off-season. LOL

Green to Denver is a pretty nice salvage of the Grant loss. Assuming they also bring back Milsap and Porter gets a bunch of PF minutes they will be fine.

Yeah, I like Jamychal Green in Denver. Solid pick up for them.

Dallas is certainly operating like they believe there is a Giannis chance. Yes I am just talking to myself at this point, but don't care. Was basically asleep--checked twitter one last time and now am wide awake.

Smitty getting giddy about how complicated OKC can make some of these deals and Stein telling him to knock it off amused me more than it should have.

Losing Trez and Green and giving Morris $64M. Yikes, rough day for Clips

Obviously you have to hold out hope until he actually signs the super max. But even if Giannis is no longer an option, it’s still a deep FA class. Even if you swing and miss on the big fish there are still some really good 2nd-3rd tier free agents that would improve this team. The Mavs could add 2-3 of those guys if they split up that max slot cap space.

Immediately after the Clippers series the word leaking all over the Mavs organization is we need more toughness and they didn't like that KP had to be the guy to go step up for Luka and ended up getting tossed.

So he does fill a need for a meaner streak and he can still play enough to get some minutes--he's not just Greg Kite.

Or maybe he's a placeholder salary matching for Bogdan. :wink:

This won't happen, but I would love a Conley for Porter swap. This would put the Jazz far enough under the cap to use the BAE and sign a backup PG.

General thought is that damn how overpayed many got today. Thought teams would hold back at these times, specially since 21 is such a nice draft. But feels like eveyone dxcepg okc and knicks swinging for the title

Do Denver have any exceptions left? Doesn’t look like they have anyone on the roster who can guard the SF spot atm. Mo Harkless?
