They are playing "keep Giannis happy". They have to take a gamble with the hope that Giannis thinks the effort is being made.

Oh, no doubt. But paying that much for a pending FA PG who can't shoot -- seems like they'll be feeling the pain in the years to come.

From my understanding Giannis had to approve the trade.

^that sounds terrible. I could see them winning a title in 2022 and then immediately reverting to an aging, capped out mess with no draft picks.

Would be hilarious if Giannis still bolts or if Jrue decides not to resign.

Anything that causes Bud misery. If Giannis dips I bet Bud would be out as well.

LOL....John Wall



Sources tell NBC Sports Washington that Wall was surprised recently to hear general manager Tommy Sheppard say the team is now building around Bradley Beal, but understood the thinking considering Beal has emerged as an All-NBA talent since Wall’s absence.

Alex Kennedy: Dwight Howard on FA: “I would love to come back and play for the Lakers again. Hopefully, this year, they give me a contract; that’s the biggest thing. I don’t want to play for free anymore. This year, it was like, ‘OK, I’ll do whatever.’ But I think I’ve earned… a contract.”

Zach Harper: Danny Ainge was throwing Kemba at everybody trying to get the picks for Jrue. Instead… it won’t be happy Holidays for him

@KevinOConnorNBA on #Celtics and trades heading into the draft: The talk yesterday was Gordon Hayward + 1st to Pelicans for Jrue Holiday. Didn’t materialize KOC: “I heard Chicago asked about Kemba”

TIL that $2.5 million is considered "playing for free".

If that is the case, I will play for free.

Per the ringer:


The Chicago Bulls have reportedly discussed a trade that would send center Wendell Carter Jr. and the No. 4 overall pick to the Golden State Warriors for the No. 2 selection in the 2020 NBA draft Wednesday night.

The Warriors are finalizing a trade to send OKC a protected 2021 first-round pick in exchange for Kelly Oubre, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal isn't official quite yet but it should be greenlit as long as Oubre passes his physical -- in March he had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Oubre's acquisition helps Golden State patch up the hole in their roster caused by Klay Thompson's season-ending Achilles injury, and he should be a great complement to Steph Curry and Andrew Wiggins offensively. Oubre and Wiggins both have the size and versatility to play multiple positions, which should ease any concerns about playing them together, and Oubre's arrival is bad news for Damion Lee's fantasy outlook.

Chris Haynes: Yahoo Sources: The Houston Rockets and Orlando Magic had discussed a trade featuring Russell Westbrook for a package centered around Aaron Gordon, but talks never progressed.

I’ve been working from home for most of the year and my 18-month old sometimes sneaks on my computer and just types a bunch of random letters and numbers. Is that what’s happening with Pistons GM tonight? Very interested to see what they end up with when this is over.
