One guy I want the Kings to throw some of the MLE at is Bruce Brown.

This summer is about defense right? I know hes not a great shooter, but hes had his moments and the kid can play defense.

He seems like an easy get.

I have Talen Horton-Tucker, Kelly Oubre Jr., and Terrance Davis as the best (realistic) wing options

I'd like THT as well. Just feels like Lakers are going to pay him.

I certainly hope so. Buddy/Bagley need to go asap.

S&T for Buddy. They give up the prospect to go all out on Lebron's timeline

That would mean he’d have to sign for $20M no? Unless Schroeder is somehow worked in a 3 team but that gets extremely complicated I’d think.

This was an idea I had awhile ago. Asked if it was even legal.

Problem at this point is who needs Schroder?

Washington - Dinwiddie
Chicago - Lonzo
Pelicans - Graham
Miami - Lowry

That puts us down to 3 teams that could potentially use a point guard.

Knicks - Signed Rose have IQ, does Thibs want another pg? He uses IQ more as a combo guard, but they also have Burks, Barrett, Fournier to play the 2/3 is there still room for Dennis?

Mavericks - Rumored to want another ball handler. Problem is they would probably require someone to take on Powell. Is it worth trading Hield for Powell/THT? I don't think so.

Celtics - Only really have Pritchard and reports they are frustrated with Smart. Tough to make the salaries work, Tristan/Langford/Grant Williams likely have to be outgoing. So that means we trade Hield for Tristan/Langford/THT. Lots of roster spots, slim chance these 3 teams work together. I mean id do it and just cut James/Jones. Stick Queta on a 2 way for now

Holmes/Tristan/Len/Metu
Barnes/Harkless/Bagley
THT/Wright/Woodard
Haliburton/Langford/Ramsey
Fox/Mitchell

Weird roster but I wouldn't mind it. Call OKC to take Bagley for free. Move Wright to the Spurs/Knicks for a 2nd or something.

Well Bruce Brown back to Nets for very cheap QO.

What do you guys think about throwing part of the MLE at Hart?

Hes played a lot of SF for the Pelicans the last 2 years, not the best shooter but you can't leave him open and he can play defense.

I've always liked his game and hes still only 26 years old.

Only fir minimum and only if we have everything lose either settled or definitely not happening til deadline (or - the offered deals aren’t worth it).

No way we should be giving away either Buddy or Barnes at this point - no matter how any of us personally feel. That’s more bad management and we are seeing that is not what we have anymore. Bagley is a problem but could also (since there’s no clutter at his position) okay his value up by simply staying healthy through the first half of the season. This can be helped by NOT PLAYING HIM AT CENTER!

Something I mentioned almost 2 weeks ago that Sam Amick is now reporting Kinga have interest in Sikiam from Tor .

Could we be shipping Buddy , Marvin etc. ?

I actually re confirmed this with my source again & Kings may be in a blockbuster ?

You guys hearing this crap about Holmes? He deleted his tweet, people speculating he was blindsided by the real number (4/46) and that hes now fielding other offers.

How in the hell have we not made a trade yet to open up some money!!!!

I doubt that’s the actual case. Be shocked tbh. Probably a tampering announcement type thing

is it because how he said it?

Lowry posted: Miami Heat X Kyle Lowry.. Lets gooo!!

Melo posted MELO with the L being a Lakers symbol.

Hope you are right. But just seems weird that would be the case when lots of others guys have done similar things.

Not sure, and you make a good point, but not going to trip about it yet. Let’s see what happens.

Now I'm seeing some theories of people saying

We agreed to trade Buddy/Bagley in a deal that will open up space but cant be completed until the 6th

So technically that 4/55 is accurate, but it can't be reported yet until that trade is.

Idk.. I tend to assume this worst with this team at this point. But we will see

I really like Bruce Brown. Watched him a bit after Andrew Bogut spoke highly of him. He is just a very good glue guy and makes things happen on the court. He would have been a good addition.

I could get behind adding Hart. I think in the scenario that Buddy is gone.
One thing I didn't realize about him was how good a rebounder he is, averaged 8rpg last season and a tick over 7rpg in his time at the Pelicans.
We know he is a plus defender and with his ability to play the 3 it would allow some good small ball lineups. Dare I say it, potentially line ups with Mitchell/Fox/Hali/Hart/Barnes against some other small ball line ups.

The weird thing I instantly thought about yesterday when hearing the 2 different numbers, the larger being his number if traded. I thought well what if Holmes is S&T? I know that it wouldn't be this, but it did make me think.

I'm not even kidding when I say why not. We going to go small, let's commit to it. I've seen some other teams do this in stretches. I think gs had Wiggins player a little small ball center at one pt. And lots of pf. If mitchell is the defender they say he is, well I'm optimistic
