Oh, no doubt. but question is are we ever going to see that KP again.

I mean, I'd take version from the beginning of the last season over his current self - he was great defensively, not that efficient offensively, but still stretched floor for Luka; this year his defense fell off the cliff, and even though he had fine offensive numbers, he had much bigger impact last year (speaking only of regular season) than this.


Thats what the Mavs athletic staff has to evaluate. If his wacky season is the result of the bubble injury or was it just because of the crazy season in general. surgery, missing first month etc.

Isn’t he now rumored to be unhappy also? And it’s not like his injuries were a one year deal, it’s really starting to add up.

If they dont think that the injury wrecked him longterm, then they arent move him in best case marginal deals or even clear downgrades like i saw with Markkanen or freaking Horford deals.

Then they are going to do their best to help him getting back to his bubble play

And what if it did, what if his game doesn't return to that level or close to it? There also seems to be a kind of a constant tension with him. I'd really be surprised if he is not moved this summer. It will really be interesting to see what happens.

Dallas: I love Kennard in Dallas. Zubac is doable and the pick could be a nice one.

Boston: Beverly and KP in Boston is a big risky move. But man if it pans out.

Clippers: If the Clippers fail to get out of the 2nd round, scoring looks to be the need.

This to me is the if. Kennard should be looked at as 1st round value. Then you are also sending 16 for KP. I don't see him holding that kind of value. If anything, I'd want 16 if I was Boston.

Kennard holding no 1st value on that contract

He is one year removed from almost 16 points a game and a .589 TS%. Despite Lue not having a clue how to use him, he still has a .608 TS% this season.

And how many 1sts with that logic is kp worth? Can stick to this regular season

Nothing easier than scoring a lot of points on a crappy team.

Not scoring a lot of points on a crappy team is even easier.

This why I see Kennard and 16 as a good deal for the Mavericks. Its like they are getting their two picks back for KP and saving face...

Wth, Kennard has negative value on that deal, and I don't think it is really that debatable.
He was an option in the "Worst contract in the league" on this very board.
He most certainly isn't worth a 1st round pick. Where did that come at all?
Citing his TS% without mentioning his total numbers is clearly a misleading argument, and serves no purpose.

Dallas getting too good a deal.

Porzingas is a malchontent
Has been a terrible fit
Has SERIOUS health concerns
Has the worst contract of everything being traded.

No way they break that down into far cheaper contracts, add a very promising young player AND a low mid first rounder.

Interesting pattern developing. Multiple Celtics posters really aggressively anti-KP. Similarly Dallas fans the same towards Kemba. This could be coincidence or this could be all the both Boston and Dallas originated speculation of a swap and both sides being scared to death.

If I'm Boston I could be talked into a future lotto protected pick, but not the 16th this year, and I would not offer Nesmith, but would offer Tristan Thompson so Dallas would have another big, but that throws the money out of whack. How about Grant Williams instead. Add yes Robert Williams is off the board. I mean Boston would be taking on another year at 36 mill, and until he actually opts out of it, it's still on the books.

EDIT: My bad, Kemba does have one year less than KP.

Nevertheless, Tristan Thompson can't be an incentive for Dallas doing this deal, since he is a negative value himself.
