Harden deal DONE - your take? (You can select multiple options)

Harden My Heart - Nets win. You get a chance at a transformative player, you take it. Any real damage is years off, if ever, and in the meantime you are a legit contender.

22%
Home Dipo - Rockets win. The love affair was over, and in exchange they got a *good* win-now player in Oladipo (albeit expiring), plus 4 picks and 4 swaps. That's a plenty good salvage under the circumstances.
19
15%
Allen Key - Cavaliers win. They picked up their C of the future for taking one extra year of Taurean Prince and giving up a lame pick.
45
35%
LeVerting to the Mean - Pacers win. Oladipo is talented, but they got a good younger (and *cheaper*) player to keep growing with their core.
28
22%
Driving a Harden Bargain - Nobody wins. Harden won't help the Nets win anything, both Houston and Cleveland screwed up by giving up value for players they will still have to sign, and a rising Pacers team just got worse.

Getting Oladipo is so odd lol

Tilman doesn’t want to lose, instead we will gift OKC a mid lotto pick

Did Cleveland swoop in and get Allen on the cheap?

So where does this leave Drummonds status with Cavs?. Might as well put him on the block.

Sneaky but I like it for HOU.

Guess IND wanted some more stability?

I knew no one would take Simmons as a main piece.

The Island of Misfit Toys now has Wall, VO, and Boogie. Surround them with Gordon, Tucker, and Woods and it'll be interesting to see what this teams looks like on the court moving forward. Trying to stay somewhat competitive now while getting 4 picks and 4 swaps.

Only having Kyrie and Harden as teammates can make KD the "likeable one" :lol:

I've been calling LeVert for Oladipo for months now. Didn't see it as a three teamer though.

Yet another example of how offering the max amount of unprotected picks/swaps actually does hold quite a bit of value and as such, the number of teams who have enough to offer for whichever star player is always much higher than is generally assumed.

Given Charlotte's desire for a young big, I wonder if they tried to get in on the Allen portion of the deal or not. Think that it was a great deal for Cleveland.

NBA twitter liking this for the Pacers is beyond bizarre. I've been pretty clear that I'm not a Dipo guy, but LeVert just isn't that good. Only benefit is he is under contract, but ugh. Feels like Houston sniped value here.
