Wizards realize they need a full-time gm to execute a Beal trade to Boston. If Tatum got Kemba and also gets beal, he's on a recruiting level of Draymond green or spencer dinwiddie.

Good, I hope he did! Serves them right for all the leaks and media hype that Kawhi to the Lakers was a lock. :lol:

Clippers are going to be awfully good.

Recruiting FAs is better than recruiting guys you'll have to trade half the team for.

Kind of glad he made a dumb decision. The clippers would be stronger with Mook. Love the parity in the league right now.

Korver not signing with the Lakers? Is that allowed per the CBA?

Milwaukee predictably cornering the market on one dimensional retread scrubs again.

So why the pack the paint strategy leaving these guys wide open? I wouldn't do it. Take my chances at throwing several different guys at Giannis.

None of them have gone to the Conference Finals. True story.

Krover to the Bucks is a good deal. Mildly annoyed we do not pick up a few veterans like this. It could be quite telling in the playoffs where experience can matter. Only time will tell though.

Out of the 4 Embiid and Simmons are the best. Brown and Tatum tho..

Still B And E are horrid match together for Philly especially in the playoffs where 2 years in a riw Ben has been pretty useless.
Good assessment:

What? like Lakers tried to do with Mook?

Clips sniffed that out and moved on, Lakers, fresh off tampering for Davis,
sat on their laurels

Couldn't get three oddest NBA players to support Manny Pacquiao -- Jordan Clarkson, Paul Pierce, and Enes Kanter.

I give the Bucks more respect as a matchup for the C's than you do.

I’m more salty because Horford left us for them ;-) I just dislike them much more than I dislike the Bucks.
