This is pretty ironic with him being a lead recruiter for Uncle Drew.

1st How many BB Balls do they play with. Picture Kyrie, KD and Harden sharing that ball.

NOW imagine the 1st scenario in crunch time :o

We already had a version of Kyrie-KD-Harden on the roster but we screwed it up and let them go.

Philly offers Simmons and that offer is dead so I don't buy this. BKN will try though

It all depends on what terms Morey and the owner left under. The owner could just say screw it and not want to send him to Phillie.

Hopefully that trade does not happen because we would be screwed out fo making any finals appearances unless KD and Kyrie break down.

I'm probably biased but Smart-Brown-Tatum vs. Harden-Kyrie-KD is a wash. :D Advantage Cs since we also have Kemba.

Are the Rockets really gonna trade a top-5 player for a couple chuckers and Jarret Allen?

Not if they blow out every team they face.
I hope this doesn’t happen, or it would be pretty hard for us moving forward.

I could buy it if it saved him some money or something, but Harden is only owed ~83 million over the next two years and then he will opt out and seek another max deal. The cavalcade of garbage the Nets are sending is owed ~96 million spread out over the next three. Nets would have to send every pick they are legally allowed to and also like 25 teams can beat that offer.

Probably right. I don't think it would even logically be considered unless you started looking at that package plus something like unprotected 2023,2025, 2027, with a swap in 2026. Then, it might make you pause. Would they do something like that again?

I also think their ability to trade for a 3rd high level player (not necessarily Harden level) depends on what people think of Levert. There are some smart people who really like him. I don't quite get it at this point, but I'm not going to act like I have watched the Nets enough to truly know. It feels like he is 22. If that was the case, the love would be much easier to understand.
