    Time to get this started for all the non-playoffs news, rumours, speculation, etc that will come up. The NBA offseason is usually great and everyone seems to think it's going to be even more insane this year with potential trades because of the lack of cap space around the league.

    Doesn't surprise me. Thibs seems intent on making the Wolves his old Bulls.

    Joel Embiid’s off-season training program seems to involve touring the playgrounds of Philadelphia and dunking on little people.

    Joel Embiid is a national treasure.

    Big offseason coming up for the Rockets.

    They have a tough decision to make on CP3's next contract. They obviously need him back but I don't think you can give a max contract to a 33 year old injury prone guard so it'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Maybe they could get him on a Lowry type of deal?

    Capela's a RFA and there was already a report a few weeks ago that said teams could make near max contract offers to him. One of the teams mentioned was the Suns but then they won the lottery so they're likely out unless they pass on Ayton. The Rockets might get lucky because of the lack of cap space around the league but either way, they'll have to pay up to keep him.

    Both Ariza and Mbah a Moute are UFAs. Not a great finish for either one of them but they're pretty important wing players.

    Oh and Anderson is still under contract for $20M/yr for the next two years.

    If the Clippers do move on from DeAndre then I think they could be in the running for Capela.

    Do they though? I thought the assumption was there was already a "handshake" deal in place when he agreed to get traded in the 1st place.

    That was the assumption but Morey seems too smart for that. 5 years, $200M+ would be a disaster.

    Paul is 33 years old. I sure as hell wouldn't want to go long term with him at this point.

    He cant be counted on for a nba finsls run. Morey is very smart but him signing Anderson probably has/will cost them a championship. I would bring back Capela. Very good player

    Its possible but he could also tell them where to put their head and just get the max, or close to it, from a middling team like Sac or ATL. He could easily say hes worth more than K-Low, unless he really likes playing with Harden that much.

    I think that with CP3 not winning a championship yet, he might take a discount if HOU could sign Lebron or some other high profile FA.

    Can absolutely see CP taking a discount to remain in Houston. Capela too.

    Idk if Paul has a choice in terms of taking a discount to stay with the Rockets. Given his age and injury concerns, there's no way I see the Rockets offering him max money or even close to max money.

    Yeah, Paul's a great player and all but that injury history really hurts his cause for a max contract. I can see him getting 2 or 3 yrs. at 20-25 milion per.

    Looks like they're doing a third game in Jo'burg, with DeRozan representing Team World.

    I found it interesting that TSN wrote the article centering on DeRo, while failing to even mention the two OTHER Raptors who are also taking part while playing for the African side, Ibaka and Siakam.

    I guess they're not as important. :laugh:

    If that is case the Rockets must simply move on

    Paul is president of the players association. He isn't taking a discount.

    Yeah, can't see Paul getting a max deal. He may be head of the player's association but he's still in his 30's and has a injury history. He'll get paid a good contract but I doubt he gets a max contract.
