Okay, this is beyond ridiculous.
It is highly unlikely that the Cavs will agree with your Kevin Love evaluation for the purpose of a trade.

Uh wtf?

But to me Simmons+Maxey is what goes back to Minny for Edwards


Although I don't agree with your evaluation, it would be interesting and amusing to me given Edwards is a Klutch cleint as well.

Seem like slowly leaking a deal that's already done.

To be fair, Jason Dumas traded Simmons on draft night to the Warriors. He seems to have the sort of breaking info that few others receive, even afterwards.

Fall

July 21, 2019: Signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Boston Celtics




Danny Ainge announced today that he is retiring from his role as President of Basketball Operations. Brad Stevens has been promoted to the team’s President of Basketball Operations. Boston Celtics (@celtics) June 2, 2021



In less than two years after signing Fall, Ainge was out in Boston.


Koby Altman might have have started his own Countdown Clock.

Altman should already be on a short clock, but Tacko Fall is the least of his problems.

Fall was on a Two-Way contract with Boston, so the harm done was wasting two seasons on him when maybe they could have developed somebody that would have eventually made a regular NBA roster.

I have the Fall signing as more of a symbol of problems in Cleveland rather than The Problem in Cleveland. So we do agree on that.

Yeah, we should be talking about something new like Simmons.

I genuinely believe Dan Gilbert said to David Griffin "I'll pick the first guy outside my office and make him my GM" during his contract negotiations and that guy turned out to be Koby Altman.

I really like Tacko Fall. I've met him a few times. Great young man. Even if he were not tall he would be a giant. Go Knights!

I remember Tacko being the only guy at the college level to slow Zion down a bit in the paint. While this isn't a league for big stiffs anymore, I'm still surprised he hasn't worked his way into a role somewhere.

Good luck as his agent trying to sell him as a Zion stopper lol.

I purposely avoided saying that he "stopped" Zion, only that Zion's college moves didn't totally work the first time going straight into a 7'5" guy playing in the middle of a zone defense. Zion did adapt as the game went along, though.

I choose to believe the first report and not the second. Because Rich Paul is bad for the league and you can't tell me otherwise.
