Melo was officially waived by the Bulls today.  Cue the Melo-to-Lakers rumors.

The Jazz have offered Ricky Rubio and their first-round pick to Memphis for Mike Conley.  Pistons are also interested in Conley

D'Angelo Russell is in the All-Star game for Oladipo.  At least the East coaches got their team right

Glad DLO made it

Interesting on the Jazz offer because I heard they had tried to get Jrue Holiday but were turned down

Are Bats so prevalent in the AT&T Center that the mascot has a Batman costume at the ready whenever he needs to chase and catch one? Manu caught one too back in the day.

Also I think Pops had more fun watching the Coyote catch that bat than he did during any of the Spurs' title wins.

I have watched from afar as the New York Knicks have made all of their moves, and it is obvious that they are setting up one thing.  It is time for the New York Knicks to make good with one of their legends, Carmelo Anthony.  People often forget that just six short years ago, he led them to a 50+-win season, and had them looking like perennial contenders, before the ill-advised hiring of Phil Jackson destroyed everything they had going.  Now, with Phil Jackson out of the way, I hope that this one proud franchise can start anew.  The New York Knicks need a savior.  Melo has something to prove.  Make it happen.

I have no idea what to think about any Rodney Hood trades as a Jazz fan. I really do think that Donovan Mitchell somehow stole his soul when he was on the Jazz. That said trading Stauskas, Baldwin & some 2nds isn't too bad of a trade for the Blazers even if it is a rental.

KCP, Kuzma, Ball, Ingram, Mykhailuk, and Bonga + 2 1sts for Anthony Davis and all the 1 year contracts they can get off of the Pelicans. Being Payton, Miller, Frazier and Diallo. Due to trade exceptions, they could actually just pull that off in exchange straight up for Davis, but I'm thinking that they'll take back as many expiring contracts as they can from the Pelicans to go after that third player. Or so I'd guess.

Reportedly the current offer on the table is Lonzo, Kuzma, Ingram, Rondo, Lance, Beasley and two firsts for Davis and Solomon Hill, who would be stretched in the summer.

If the Bucks somehow get Davis, fucking hell.

Can't believe I wasn't too far off with that trade assumption about the Lakers are offering to the Pelicans. I just didn't think they would only want Davis + 1 back.

KCP for Jabari isn't a bad idea.

The Bucks have no first rounders or anything that they could trade for Davis. That list was a "send me here and I'll list teams that can't possibly deal for me" list.

Eh to me the Jabari train has left the station. He never wanted to defend on top of the multiple ACL tears (which sucks) and the questionable conditioning. It's pretty telling that a team that is one of the five worst in the league are ready to get off of a dude on a 2 year deal.

That said if I am the Lakers, why the hell not?

They would need him instead of KCP to fill spots after an AD trade. Even without an AD trade they have way too many guards.

John Wall fell in his home and tore his Achilles. The incision from his previous surgery on his foot had an infection which contributed to the tearing.

He's now out until 2021 and his super max starts next year. Wizards are fucked now.

Lakers are gonna get him in the 2020 Free Agency anyways and will get a big free agent in the offseason. I think it works better in the long run since maybe one of Lonzo, Ingram, or Kuzma jump up to be a top 10-20 player and maybe Davis keeps getting hurt and it turns out they lucked out not giving up that much.

If they're holding out for four first rounders, they're going to lose him for nothing; nobody's offering that, not even Boston.

Boston ain't offering shit compared to the Lakers anyway. The proof is right here:


Like who the fuck are they really offering? This might turn out to be a blessing in disguise in some ways, this group with a Kawhi, Klay, Vucevic, or Kyrie would be really good.

The problem is that Magic is too thirsty for a star. The last reported offer with all five young players was the goddamn stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Is that serious?

Of course Kuzma is going to have higher point totals than Tatum and/or Brown, he takes more shots (and hits a lower percentage, especially on 3's). Boston has far more talent than the Lakers which makes it far more difficult for one player's stats to stand out with exception of Kyrie Irving, because he's a top 10 talent in the entire league. Tatum is also only 20.

I'd take Tatum over both Ingram and Kuzma.  Most wanted to least wanted:

1. Tatum
2. Lonzo
3. Ingram
4. Kuzma
5. Brown
6. Hart
7. Rozier

Come on, 909.  You and me, we are crew so I’ll look the other way on Kuzma, who often doesn’t have to share or sacrifice as much as Tatum does but saying Ingram is greater than Tatum at this point is a total homer call.

Tatum is the best individual player in either offer.  I haven’t scoped the draft picks but Boston still has some surprising good ones like the Memphis pick two years from now.

Ingram shoots at a higher percentage, so nah. I don't see it. Ingram needs to get better at shooting free throws though, then there will be a huge increase in his counting stats.

Ingram also shoots nearly the exact same amount of shots a game as Tatum and has a higher PPG.

Tatum is better than Ingram and Kuzma. But Kuzma is better than the rest of the Celtic prospects. Ingram and Jaylen are around the same level.

I think the difference either way with Kuzma-Ingram-Tatum is also negligible to the point where someone would be a moron to take the Celtics prospects. Terry Rozier is a bum.

If this leads to another idiot GM getting fleeced by Danny Ainge after the market dries up and has moved on in the summer I won't know what to think besides the fact they will deserve it kinda since their owner will have let some bullshit that happened to his NFL team against the Rams effect his bullshit NBA franchise. Starting to see why actual talent from the front offices to the players wanna avoid these situations as much as possible.

He's only played more than 68 games twice in his career. And injuries with big men usually don't get better as they age. 4 first rounders plus the three best young players on a team is a ludicrous offer.

Time will definitely prove me right on the Ingram one. Shoots a better percentage with the same amount of shots per game and scores more. Also a good defender and passer. Still needs to gain more weight to become a better rebounder though.

And I watch the Celtics very often because I love to watch Kyrie, so this isn’t a case of not having watched the player in question.

On the Wall injury, he should be back "healthy" for the start of 2020-21 season. Probably as a shell of himself. He has already started to look diminished to me the past few years. Washington will then have three more years of that mega contract to deal with. Basically Washington should be in tank out mode for the next 3 years, hope Wall comes back and looks usable to a contending team.

I can see a big that doesn't need to use speed and explosion be able to comeback from that injury like Boogie has better than a ball dominant point guard.  Wizards are fucked.

He has a 35% FG allowed against elite scorers.

Everyone has someone they can’t guard and Fox is his guy, but look at Westbrook’s numbers against him this season. It’s incredible. His defense isn’t much worse than Jrue Holiday’s, now he just has to start scoring like him.
