So, is the Juancho trade going to become official today?

Yeah. I think it's just the reality. The NBA is just loaded with talent right now. IMO these past 2 or 3 years, we've seen more talent in the NBA than ever before.

Which is why guys like Anthony Brown and Nigel Hayes. Even Jalen Adams and Zach Auguste. These guys are doing really well overseas but couldn't make it in the NBA.

No NBA team wants IT so he goes overseas. Mike James is a damn good player. He showed some really good flashes for the nets last year. But they brought in Patty Mills, they drafted Cam Thomas and they brought back Bruce Brown, so James - as good as he is, is headed back to Europe.

Local guys like Wenyen Gabriel and Noah Vonleh. So much talent, size, upside. But haven't been able to make it in the NBA. It's a tough league, it's loaded with talent.

No disrespect to Smitty the man, but he's gotta find better sources. He gets burned a lot and I think is starting to grow a rep for it

Really? I think this is the first time I see him getting burned. In fact, I think he's very well connected and always spot on.

Al Horford, Jabari Parker and Romeo Langford for John Wall and Usman Garuba.

Now you know that has little chance of happening, for various reasons.

But then, I’m still holding a candle for Garuba, too. :brokenheart:

Ok, one more trade by Brad before training camp or do you think we are set?

I think Jabari Parker will be waived and someone will sign a 2-way.

Do you think we´ll leave an open roster spot for the season then? Interesting.

No. I think someone like Anthony Brown will be signed for the vet minimum to replace Parker. Players like Taj Gibson, with many years of service, would be too expensive. If it's not Anthony Brown, then some other guy from Europe or someone cut from training camp.

If we had traded Smart/Nesmith/1st/TPE for Gordon/Fournier, we would've had to pay them a combined $170 mil

Had no problem paying Fournier less than $80 million for 4 seasons -lets hope the result is Beal or LaVine. I can't see Gordon for over $90 million in any situation

Mike James would've been a good pick up. As Hal said he looked good with the Nets. Strong, good shooter, good ball handler. As for Fournier, was never a fan. That $80 million is better spent elsewhere on the roster no matter if we get Beal or whomever.

Loss of credibility for Keith Smith. I learned a long time ago as a local sports reporter, you check your sources. If you're posting something about Isaiah Thomas, you check with Isaiah Thomas to confirm it before posting. That's journalism 101.

He said there was a lot of buzz, and there was indeed. So he didn´t lie...but yes, he should have verified with someone in Thomas´camp.

Why should he verify? Both statements could be 100% true. CSKA cut ties with Mike James and has no point guard. Alexy Shved and Daniel Hackett are both shooting guards. I wonder if Tremont Waters would enjoy playing in Russia.

Waters is not good enough for CSKA, that team is top 4 in Euroleague if not top 2, hence the interest in picking IT.
