Quantity? Yes.

Quality? — wash. WeHam are on my naughty list right now but nothing listed above interests me.


Curry alone is nasty for a 76er team who lacked shooting. Dude shot 45% from 3 on 5 attempts last year. They also got out of that terrible Horford deal quickly. Quality is nowhere near a wash IMO.

Wow, didn't see that coming. Good on him for choosing to control his own destiny over taking big money.

Wow. I'd heard he was unhappy with his role in Boston, but that is a lot of money to give up. He must feel confident that someone (Atlanta?) is going to throw a huge offer at him.

Oubre on his way to GS. Funny. He's good enough for them, but not for the Magic.

Because our front office is too concered about "winning" trade than making sense of roster they are building...

And Morey is simply one of the best out there.


I think that’s a really solid observation- Moreyis moving forward with his team vision...taking hits along the way (Horford) but proceeding with his path, not obsessing over relative value of each transaction

Wow. Oubre traded for TPE.

What is OKC planning for? Just collecting picks and cap space ...

They will be ahead of us in no time.

Get rid of big contracts, collect picks, move up where possible, draft young stars, and have cap space to add big names FAs who want to play with them.

They have to have a deal lined up to offload Wiggins, right? They can’t sit on that tax bill ...

Who would absorb that contract without getting back Wiseman?

Wiggins is still owed a guaranteed $122 million :o

Or that 2021 Minny pick. But that isn’t something you give away as a cash dump.

I just don’t get it. Maybe $$ doesn’t matter to them?

imo something changed in front office of Warriors since Durant left. That team is now easly one of worst runned organisations out there. They just can't stop making money- burning bizzare trades and moves that do nothing for them.

It's so obvious that with Klay injury and hope of compeating with Curry is gone. Instad of selling high and kickstarting rebuild they are adding this disaster players like Oubre, Russell, Wiggins.. Their new trade will probably be Hezonja and Westbrook.
Marqueese Chriss is out there , probably in rotation :rofl:

G league + Curry

Let's see where they end up, but if they fielded that team more or less as is, I think they can still make the playoffs in the 5-8 range. What's hurting them most is Draymond's decline, as they just don't have any defensive intensity anymore. If they can get Wiseman, Wiggins and Oubre to play hard on that end then they should be able to compete.

Though, I think they now become a very real contender for Harden. Wiggins + Wiseman + picks for Harden? Gets GSW back into contention standard talent levels at least. And they're already paying a ton in luxury tax anyway.

$148M commmited in books before Oubre :crazy:
Starting lineup of : Curry- Wiggins- Oubre- Green and Wiseman
No bench depth whatsoever ( Paschall, Samjlagić, Poole, Lee, Chriss ? ) :cry:

That team can score, but man, they can't defend 4 out of 5 positions :crazy:
Green has been disaster last 2 years. Nothing shorter than disaster. He was their by far worst player in nba playoffs of 2019. He got even worst since. I don't think he can any longer be nba starter on any playoff team. He is out of shape, injury prone and flat out doesn't contribute in any way or fashion. Guy turned into terrible version of Tucker, who is alraedy fringe starter.

Before Klay injury there was some hope they can make a trade or play for Giannis. Giannis ain't going to play with 34 years old Curry and Klay who will be learning how to walk again at age of 32.

Might as well burn a pile of money. They aren’t winning a championship with that lineup.

Lakers, Clippers, Nuggets, Mavs, Blazers, Suns, Jazz... Only one objective spot open.
They might miss playoffs with them.

Joe Lacob is "only" worth 1.2 billion. The hundred million per year tax will be felt by him. I guess the goal is to make this up in marketing, advertisement and memorabilia sales.

Hezonja on the move again, as the smaller part of a trade.
