If they can come out with a Vaccine at the beginning of 2021, that could change things.
From what I'm hearing, you need 2 shots and it's only 90% effective, at the moment.

MGRADS on twitter, who's buddies with a few NBA players, is saying that Simmons is going to wind up on the Warriors. That means Harden to Philly, with Wiggins, filler and #2 going to the Rockets.

Atlantic division is going to be tough.

Tbh he's a kind of a weak source. He was convinced that Kawhi was going to the Lakers for starters, that KD/Kyrie were going to the NYK, etc.

He's not bad, but he blows a lot of smoke that doesn't happen, from my experience.

Would this take them out for Hayward, if they trade him into cap space?

Not really. They have $51m cap space not counting the cap holds. They can also dump Dedmon for more cap space.

Looks like the rockets are in shambles. Players aren’t happy, and I’ve read somewhere Harden hasn’t been answering calls from ownership, front office, and coach Silas for weeks now. :lol:

He's now saying Harden to the Nets. Lol. If that happens....it will be very funny watching Kyrie play the 3rd banana while Harden and KD fight over who's first banana. I'm actually hoping that it happens. Would prefer to see that implosion vs having to go up against a Harden/Embiid combo.

Ibaka would have to take a lot less money to go to BKN.

As for Harden to BKN, yeah that feels like Grads just trying to get a reaction. Literally an hour before, you can see his tweets said Harden to Philly so the dude is blowing smoke per usual. The Nets have a decent amount to offer, but if Philly offers Simmons, the Nets have no shot of getting him.

That being said, I'm sticking with my prediction that both Harden and Russ are Rockets next year. Why you ask? Who the hell is gonna take Westbrook's deal? I honestly believe zero teams in the league want him, he has three years left on the worst deal in basketball.

I honestly think unless you give the Knicks or Hornets multiple firsts (and Houston has already given up a ton of their picks), WB has no leverage here.

I disagree about Westbrook. Someone will absolutely take him. Not saying they should but someone will. For a team like Charlotte (whose owner loves him) or Orlando it’s legitimately their only shot at getting a superstar (although a fading and flawed one). If he legit wants out there will be takers.

I don’t pay much attention to mgrads. Dude just throws **** out there. If hardens available he’s philly’s to lose imo
