I think the league is trending towards smarter GMs who aren't being forced into garbage win now situations by their owners. So less pressure to mortgage futures.

Mmm but on the other hand owners will stay greedy and demanding forever and there will always be someone whose job is on the line and needs to trade ANYBODY and TODAY to show their worth

They probably prefer someone more fleet footed. Teletovic is the lowest bball iq euro ever now that Mario Hezonja has sort of learned what basketball is. Mirza Teletovic is Gerald Green if Gerald Green was a tough guy. He just shoots the ball no matter what.

I wonder if there's some kind of REASON that Kawhi didn't join EVERY OTHER NBA PLAYER in letting his hair out! The Spurs know stanley just needs some braids or some clippers. drat it! You can only get players to subscribe to hair theory if there's a team dinner every night with obscure wine lists.

Yeah I was looking for the worst contract on the Bucks and that was it. Figured Lopez would be a big upgrade but probably not enough for a 1st (even in the late future). I was trying to find a way to get Holiday in the deal too but the Bucks just don't have bad contracts to give up.

Mills and Green make $20m combined, so Detroit would have to throw in about $17m in addition to Johnson to make the salaries match. So Leuer and Ish Smith or Galloway. Don't see the benefit for the Spurs especially since Green is pretty important for the defense.

More likely would be Kyle Anderson and a 1st for Johnson. We have this Bryn Forbes that may interest you.

It feels like they've been trying to get Stanley Johnson for years now. The spurs also desperately need a backup center because Joffrey Lauvergne is not good. I feel like Mills, Gay, and Green should all be on the block at this point.

I don't like Stan but he is not that stupid. Danny Green cannot shoot anymore and Patty Mills is a less good Ish Smith. They'd have to trade kawhi + something for andre drummond and reggie jackson and johnson for it to come out. Never going to happen.

The next CBA has an amnesty is a guarantee. They gave themselves an amnesty before and they'll do it again.

The Pistons will need it for the last 2 years of blake griffin and will be paying out 70m over 7 years

Next CBA opt-out is after the 2022-23 season, that means the entirety of Blake's contract is Guaranteed with a big G.

Or you could stretch it, but that would mean multiple years with 10+ million in dead money.

Yeah, my use of team success for saying Dragic was not a bad all-star pick (though note I said it should be Kemba) is not aging very well.
