The Nets will trade Dzanan Musa and a 2021 second-round pick to acquire Bruce Brown from Detroit.

Jrue Holiday is heading to Milwaukee for Bledsoe, George Hill, 3 first round picks and the rights to two pick swaps. I like Jrue but that seems like a lot...

Also sounds like Trevor Ariza is going back to Houston with the Blazers getting Robert Covington in exchange

Those are all gonna be late firsts so it sounds like more than it is. Bledsoe is a bum and George Hill can be replaced easily in free agency. I wouldn’t call it a *great* deal but it could well help keep Giannis in town in the long run

Jrue's a really good #2 to get for Milwaukee but that is a pretty steep price to pay, even if they end up being late 1st Round picks. I think Bledsoe will benefit from feeding it to Zion a lot and Hill's carved out a role as a 3 point specialist. If Bledsoe even plays up to his potential and New Orleans gets a star out of any of their 1st Round picks...

More on Kevin Porter Jr

Cleveland Cavaliers swingman Kevin Porter Jr., who was arrested Sunday in Mahoning County on suspicion of possessing a gun and marijuana, was accused of punching a woman in the face and ripping off her weave during an August fight in downtown Cleveland, according to police reports.

Cleveland police told the two women involved in the fight that they would need to follow up with the city prosecutor’s office if they wanted to press charges against Porter and his sister. Porter has not been charged as of Tuesday.

Rodney Hood and James Ennis Jr. have declined their player options while Jabari Parker and Andre Drummond picked theirs up.

Rockets also picked up the 16th Pick & a future 1st Round pick in the Ariza/Covington deal.

Now I am hearing rumors of a Kemba Walker and Gordon Heyward for James Harden trade. Idk how I feel about that one.

I'd actually be okay with that. I'm not a big fan of Harden but we'd still be keeping Brown & Tatum, which is what I prefer out of any potential trade scenarios.

Sign me up for Harden NOW. Heyward is a nice player but can't seem to stay healthy at all, and as much as I am a Kemba Walker fan, he's not good enough when it matters and can't defend ANYONE.

Yeah, the Harden rumor was shot down before it got any momentum. The latest I’m hearing is the Hawks making a play for Hayward. I know the Celtics were looking at their draft pick so I’d keep my eye on that.

There’s also some rumors of a deal between the Rockets and the Wizards involving Westbrook and John Wall.

If I'm the Rockets, I'm trying to get the Wolves or Warriors to get involved as a third team to try to get one of the top two picks tomorrow.


Even if the Rockets get LaVert, Dinwiddie, Allen and 5-7 Nets 1st Round picks/swaps, they are a non playoff team for the next two years and owe OKC their pick or swaps. One of the swaps in the next two years is Top 4 protected, so they would benefit from burning it all down.

And Woj is reporting that Klay Thompson will be out for the season with an Achilles injury.

I guess Steph Curry will have to #TrustTheProcess now...

Agreed that it is a massive, massive bummer especially since it seems unlikely that Klay will ever be the same player when he returns. Those types of long term injuries are as psychologically damaging as they are physically damaging as we've seen last few years with Heyward.

I liked Klay a lot. Not only as a player, he seemed like a good dude off the court too, which makes stuff like this worse.

The Knicks solve some of their PF logjam by declining Bobby Portis' nearly 16 MILLION option and waiving Taj Gibson. They also waived Elfrid Payton who I'd actually be fine with the Bulls pursuing if they want a veteran pg on the roster.

This sentence just made me realize how fast time flies in the NBA. I was like "veteran? isn't he only on his 3rd season?" but he's on Season 7 (and Team #5).

His career just kind of runs together though after he cut his hair.
