Getting Monroe for free is great for the Pelicans. He can replicate the passing of cousins, rebound a little, and score in the post a little. Mirotic lets them do more. I like that they're not surrendering the season

The Twin Towers line-up worked in spite of the era of small-ball because Cousins and Davis are some of the best basketball players on the planet. Monroe is significantly less so

Stupid Knicks stole Scott Perry from us and now we can't offer to take on Noah's terrible deal in exchange for a first round pick because of collusion rules

He would still be taking minutes that would otherwise be going to Dante Cunningham and Chieck Diallo.

He'd be a solid pickup for a team just devastated by an injury and short on talent but I don't think it'll be a "80% of Cousins, so plug-and-play for 80% the production". They are going to have to get a little more creative in their lineups since you can't play him for 40 minutes and expect him to drop 3 point bombs to cover defensive deficiencies.

Capella is a good roll guy and finisher. Asik and Hibbert both have stone hands and no post game. You can't really compare them as the same type of player

  else:
    # this knee doesn't work, try again with another one

I'm assuming it's because the Celtics offered the most money.

For all the talk of using the regular season with the Pelicans to drum up his free agent value, having a good playoff run is loving catnip to bad GMs. He could play himself into some Troy Hudson money

And Brad Stevens will unlock even more of that earning potential

This makes up for the time ownership said they couldn't afford to pay for a parade (even though the parade costed ~a few courtside tickets to a GSW playoff game).

On one hand, the cost of the estimated clean-up kept going up so they have a right to be suspicious. On the other hand, it's not exactly an unheard of thing for rich douchebags to have their cake and eat it too by making benevolent sounding promises to adoring crowds and then flipping direction later on when they actually have to pay

I'm lolling at the idea of Marcus Smart or Mudiay being traded for Tyreke. The Grand Daddy of can't shoot but maybe we can turn him into a PG prospects being traded for one of his younger copies

Tyreke is also shooting well (or at least did to start the season) and therefore the bizarro Danny Ainge is right timeline continues on

I don't get Cleveland's hangup over Hill's contract next season. Yeah, paying him $20M next year if LeBron leaves sucks. But it's just that year and the season after he has a super cheap buyout. And he can do a bunch of things now to help you. If you're convinced LeBron is so mad he's walking out the door anyway, then why even be involved with these other trade offers
