Lonzo staying with the Pels.

Looks like Redick is going to the Mavs. Solid for them.

Miami's getting Oladipo a half season earlier than expected.

They're very strong now.

The Magic trade away all their best players. Do I feel sorry for Coach Clifford? No, I do not.

How many teams has J.J. Redick been on now? I lose track. It seems like he changes teams twice a year.

Aaron Gordon seems like a nice pickup for Denver. Hes not that great, but hes solid and seems like a great fit next to Jokic. He gives them an athletic defensive PF to replace Jarami Grant.

The Clippers giving up two 2nd round picks and a more productive player in Lou Will for Rondo seems a bit off. I get what they are trying to do, but I think Rondo's playoff run last year was a bit fluky and I don't think they should count on that happening again, but oh well.

Bjelica is a nice pickup for the Heat. Oladipo could make them pretty dangerous.

Lou Williams is washed. So is Rondo but at least he can do more things without the ball.

Vuc in Chicago is wild

Orlando absolutely choose the right path. I’m surprised Chicago gave up what they did for Vuc to be honest and I’m glad we didn’t do anything like that. Will Orlando have all kinds of cap space now?

not exactly, they already handed out their extensions. they've definitely solved quite a few issues and got their flexibility back though

around 50+ cleared up for next year i think. probably need to double check tho

Seems redundant to me with Porter Jr already there?

Gordon is a good versatile defender who can guard Bron, AD, Kawhi, PG... Porter Jr. is one of the worst defenders in the league.

Denver really improved also upgraded backup center with McGee. Much needed size for when they play Lakers.

Yikes.

Brutal loss for Houston tonight after being up by so much so late in the game, only to go ice cold and lose.

Terry and Gorgui Dieng (recently cut by Memphis) both went to Louisville. Overreact accordingly.

Nets are going to go from a terrible team to champions in just a couple seasons. Mostly because they are in a desirable market.

Return to Charlotte Hornets
