    carry on. Though perhaps this thread represents a good chance to put the Kawhi rehashing behind us and move on to the next chapter.

    Ujiri kinda knew he was leaving... Wonder if Uncle Dennis got under his skin. Lol!

    Another Summer League note: Dewan Hernandez looked solid. CB is a weird player but he is a scorer.

    So Kawhi is signing a 3 year deal with the Clips, but the 3rd year is a player option. A 2+1. So much for the "no interest in a short term deal". This whole thing really exposed how these supposed insiders don't know all that much.

    After 2 years, he'll be eligible for the 10 year supermax. It also lines up with George's deal expiring, and when the Clips will have trouble re-stocking the team with their no draft picks. If things go south, he can bolt.

    Summer of 2021 will be fun, and it looks like the Clipper got played. All those assets for 2 seasons of Kawhi + George in a stacked conference. Ruthless. Clippers better hope they go 2 for 2 with what they gave up.

    There's a pretty big chance he leaves the Clippers for the Lakers in 2021, when Lebron decides to focus on his media empire. He's had the Lakers on his mind since 2017, and it looks like he's pretty determined to eventually be the guy there. Clips are another pit stop.

    Not right now. Really no good argument for it.

    Those expirings though at the deadline. Profoundly valuable.

    Clearly he's positioning himself for a Giannis-Kawhi team up in Toronto! (One can only dream)

    Yeah it's best to play the first half of the season to see what this team can do/see what value our vets have and then make moves accordingly at the deadline.

    Does anyone think that this is the Bucks conference to lose? No Kawhi, no Durant this season. If Giannis and the gang can't go all the way, then something is wrong.

    Depends on the 76ers.

    Embiid can be as dominant as Giannis, but will he put in the work?
    Will Simmons develop a jumper?

    I also like the Horford add.

    I see it as a two-horse race right now.

    I'm not gonna say he brought it on himself, but damn, Danny. Maybe you should figure out that your place is next to the sketchiest neighborhood in western Canada before you book it.

    No reason to say they're gonna do it right now. Keep the fans engaged, keep the leverage, keep the players focused. Masai doesn't need to tip his hand before he's ready to actually do something.

    How do we know what’s true and what’s not anymore? Why should I believe anything these articles talk about?

    Not really. They lost Brogdan who huge for them and Mirotic who was serviceable.

    It depends what happens with 76ers and Celtics.

    Also I’m not sleeping on the Pacers once Dipo comes back.

    I wonder if we could get DLO for OG + probably don’t have the assets to pick him up but would welcome him in a heart beat.

    Who are we talking about? The only dlo I know is d'angelo Russell, but he's headed to golden state.

    Unless d-lo brown has a secret second career as a basketball player.

    You better recognize. :sarcasm:
