Something bigger coming for the Raps, I hope.
Yeah I've noticed in past deadlines. I never really paid too close of attention but always kind of read the headlines but when I started watching, it was the early Blake Griffin years and really got into it during Lob City. So basically during that time, the Clippers didn't have any cap space (or assets) and so the biggest trade was Bledsoe for Dudley and Redick or Bullock for Rivers. Now with the Clippers having both cap space and assets, I've been paying attention more and more. It just seems like an excessive amount of players. Is it because of the FA class coming up?
Could be. Kawhi, Kyrie, KD, Klay, Boogie, Khris Middleton... that's an interesting group of names up for free agency.
Edit: And Tobias Harris and Jimmy Butler of course. Hopefully the Sixers hang on to at least one of those two.
I'd say it's the new normal. Every year seems to be a bit more crazy than the previous one. Players hold so much power in the NBA compared to other sports.
Barnes was playing tonight when the trade happened.
I agree with Aldridge. It doesn't make sense to keep and re-sign an older player like Ariza when he's probably the one guy (other than Beal) they can get something decent for.
Plus Ariza probably won't be there when the Wizards are actually good again. He'll be 35 years old by the time John Wall gets healthy.
yeah the wizards keeping ariza makes zero sense
if the lakers can somehow swap KCP for ariza it would be very nice
The Jazz seem like a team to watch and I think they need to do something. They need an upgrade at PG to take some pressure off Mitchell and have been linked to Conley, Lowry, and Dragic.
Also will be waiving Teodosic hopefully Beasley too.
Might as well keep this for the buyout market
Skal deserves a shot elsewhere. Don't think he's great, but he shouldn't be rotting on the bench.
Good add for them.
Separate names with a comma.
