Re: Prosportsdaily: wiggins/saric/#43 to Houston for Chris paul/nene

This would be dumb. CP isn't going to play here. Why would he? No hope for a ring. He is already going to get paid by someone. He's chasing rings if he leaves. Rosas will be booed if he does this. No chance this happens.

Re: **Official NBA Offseason Transactions/Rumors Thread**

Probably would give 11 for Ball think you could get a 2nd back. Yes he is hated. Yes he needs to get better as a shooter, but yes he is a magical distributor. Yep. You have his rights for awhile too. He could still be a star. He's better than any PG in this draft after Morant and we need one desper...

Re: NBA Playoffs

Remember Draymond is one technical away from suspension... He could get T'd up anytime he commits a foul, which in his mind he's never actually done before. It'd take a full meltdown for him to get a T at this point because they aren't going to cut the Warriors down another guy for game 7. I disagr...

Re: Wolves in on D'Angelo Rusell?

I don't believe they can do all three of those .. Butler/Kyrie/sign and trade Russell for pieces. I could be wrong though... Assuming Kyrie and Butler get north of 30 a year... They don't have to S&T DLo right? Another team makes an offer, and they can refuse to match right? Not sure they want to l...

Re: Wolves in on D'Angelo Rusell?

Those were two god awful acquisitions, and we'd have been better just eating the cap space, starting Jones and Dieng and praying that they developed. And that's the best we can do unless we're on the brink of a title, which doesn't appear likely in the Town's era. What are the realistic avenues for...

Re: Wolves in on D'Angelo Rusell?

I think it'd be a mistake to get him on a max. Pretty good player, but really not that big of a difference maker. Would be nice to get KATs buddy on the team tho. This is what I think too. Not sure why we would break the bank for him. Yeah, he and KAT are friends, but so was KG and T Hud. But then ...

Re: Wolves in on D'Angelo Rusell?

Yeah I don't think they'd make this move without knowing for sure one guy is coming. Good news for Russell suitors I think it may be the opposite. Could allow them to spend on 2 and still match an offer to Russell. I think they'd do a sign and trade in that spot. I think they know Kyrie is coming a...

NBA mock draft @nbadraft.net has Kabengele going 10 overall to Atlanta.

Yeah, but that's just one draft site. Some have him a lot lower.

Re: Wolves in on D'Angelo Rusell?

Anybody wonder why they are shopping him around?

Also I find it kind of odd that Towns is the only one of the top 4 picks still with the team that drafted him.

Re: Mfiondu Kabengele

He's a little less athletic than Doumboya but a little bigger. He doesn't have the off the bounce and passing but has better post game. Both good shooters. They really are quite similar as all around players. Both on the raw side but I'd take either and be happy . Question is, do you take him at #1...

Re: Vanterpool hired as associate head coach

Saunders was "key" in the process.

Sounds like he is actually in on the hiring of assistants and not just given his staff as some have suggested.

Re: Wolves in on D'Angelo Rusell?

There's a lot of rumors connecting Kyrie Irving to Brooklyn right now which could force Russel out. I guess we'll see if Rosas can get creative. Ideally the Nets renounce rights to all free agents, then sign Kyrie and Butler. Not if we want him. Then we need to move salary in a deal to be able to p...

Re: Post Your Andrew Wiggins Apologies Here

We are in such bad shape with Wigs, I mean, he's got talent, and if we DO find a way to trade him, who hopes that he fails just so we can be relieved?

I would hate to see a trade to another team and Wiggins actually did improve over the summer. :shock:
