1. I like that acquisition for Boston.

2. I can’t help but wonder if This move precipitates a Jaylen Brown trade.

I think it's maybe more Boston won't resign Fournier

Dallas is poorly ran but we'll see what the franchise does going forward with a new GM. They give away draft picks (second round) as if they have no value. They don't retain or add any talent worth mentioning. They never have free agency success but are always me tioned among the teams in any rumors that are pursuing star talent. Cuban took notes from Jerry Jones.

Keep in mind they traded Seth Curry for James Johnson. They traded for JJ Reddick before the deadline only to waste draft pick(s) for him.

I just hope it's talk and he doesn't sign with Miami.

Zach Collins is going to make a very solid if underwhelming backup Center very soon. His profile as a shot blocker and 3-pt shooter could make him a valuable modern big in the mold of new-Brook Lopez.

Milwaukee, Toronto and New Orleans would each be wise to consider him for a bench role.

He keeps getting injured. Refractured the same foot that kept him out all of this season.

According to veteran NBA reporter Marc Stein, Stephen Curry and the Warriors will come to an agreement on a 4-year, $215M extension this summer. 

Curry is entering the final year of his deal in 2021-22 but there won't be any drama here. Curry is entering his age-34 season but isn't showing signs of slowing down, ranking 2nd in standard fantasy leagues last season with 32.0 points, 5.8 assists and 5.3 triples.

Congrats to the kid for getting paid. That’s generational wealth right there. But it seems like he’ll have a hard time living up to this contract. No way the dude is anywhere the offensive talent of Trae or Luka.

If we can afford another cheap, young backup and project to invest in, I’d love to get Malik Monk into our development program.

Which explains why he’s trending on Twitter.

Assuming he’s on a low cost deal, LA may have gotten a serious bargain for a floor spacing young guard.
Though, I’m unconvinced he’s ready for the bright lights of a premier team in a title quest.

Return to Atlanta Hawks
