i'm gonna take the over on 10 games with russ on the lakers but not there for the season

to be the catalog catalyst i need russ in the starting line up with me

expecting the mavs to overachieve just got that feeling

jeff van gundy, appearing on zach lowe’s podcast, came out of absolutely nowhere with a take that the lakers should trade for willy hernangomez. he had an entire argument for it ready to go. and he repeatedly called him “billy.”

inside the nba has adam silver on and shaq is telling everyone how he punched many teammates over the years "as a leader"

they moved on without acknowledging it lol

lag∞n, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 22:51 (one year ago) link

3 firsts doesn't make sense to me either. if that team exists it seems like it would stand out a mile as the obvious partner in that deal.

more difficult than I look (Aimless), Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:02 (one year ago) link

the hawks just traded 3 first for dejounte murray last year

― lag∞n, Tuesday, April 11, 2023 1:54 PM (eight minutes ago)

he was also on an insanely cheap contract & coming off the best year of his career

to be clear my argument is not that trae isn't worth three firsts if you strip away context and measure him up against guys like mitchell, murray, gobert etc. but like i said yesterday if you start going thru the teams to find candidates to trade a huge haul of assets to turn the keys of their franchise over to trae... i just don't see many options, personally. but maybe there's secret huge trae fans out there amongst the GM community

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:05 (one year ago) link

obvs finding a match for big trades is always a chore but i feel like getting 3 first for trae is pretty normal

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:07 (one year ago) link

i agree that this would be selling low on trae, however i swear i won't cry if they do. my kid on the other hand...

Heez, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:10 (one year ago) link

small point guard is just a tough fit bcuz you really only need one of those guys on the floor. if you already have one (most teams) idk if you're trading all your assets for another one. at least w/ dame you know ppl actually like the guy

more difficult than I look (Aimless), Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:10 (one year ago) link

many teams dont have that guy tho and they do want him

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:11 (one year ago) link

tho it does rule out the funniest possible landing spot for trae the new york knicks

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:12 (one year ago) link

the new york nets tho...

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:13 (one year ago) link

lol, the Knicks were my first thought - they could play the "Fuck Trae Young" video on the jumbotron to welcome him

also just feel like teams are gonna have to take stock of these recent assets for stars deals & notice that the acquiring teams have almost uniformly ended up w/ the short end of the stick. the market is gonna have to correct itself at some point. i doubt the hawks would be the ones willing to bite the bullet and do the trade that shifts the market back, but i do have to imagine the recent history of those deals would make teams hesitant to do one for a player like trae

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:26 (one year ago) link

the more i think about trae for brad beal the more i feel like that's the move if the hawks are serious about this

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:27 (one year ago) link

bad teams will always want to trade millions of draft picks for star players its just who they are, some owner will always want james harden, the only reason it wasnt happening more in the past is because stars werent available as much

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:30 (one year ago) link

brad beal and 3 firsts maybe, but i wouldnt even do that if i were the hawks. trae isnt even in his prime yet and he was just an all nba player one season ago. beal is 30 and not nearly as good as trae imo. the only way they get rid of him is if he's asked for it or the whole org secretly hates him.

four square ups... no punches thrown (Spottie), Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:33 (one year ago) link

seems like theres a good chance the org does hate him

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:37 (one year ago) link

id get what i could for trae now personally im not a believer

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:37 (one year ago) link

there was an interview with huerter a while ago where he was hinting at something like that

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:39 (one year ago) link

backing up the truck for quin snyder and then not even seeing what he could do with trae would be an interesting series of decisions

call all destroyer, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:47 (one year ago) link

unless snyder has already decided he doesnt like trae

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:49 (one year ago) link

personally i would want my highly-compensated coach to at least give it a season with my difficult superstar before making that call but i'm not the son of an nba owner

Yeah the only way I see this happening is if Quinn already decided they’d be better off without him

Heez, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:54 (one year ago) link

"his day-to-day habits on and off the court"

call all destroyer, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 18:56 (one year ago) link

he's openly clashed w/ two straight coaches & is a ball hog who takes crazy shots while never playing defense. don't think it takes a ton of decoding to come to the conclusion that ppl there prob don't like him

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:02 (one year ago) link

brad beal and 3 firsts maybe

if i'm trading brad beal and 3 first for trae young tony ressler better be wiring me like $50 million to an untraceable offshore account on the side

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:04 (one year ago) link

he's also led the league in assist the last two years and has barely been injured

Heez, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:11 (one year ago) link

jordan very low on trae!

four square ups... no punches thrown (Spottie), Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:14 (one year ago) link

i also do not like trae but it doesnt matter what we think

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:18 (one year ago) link

brad beal is a negative contract tho

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:29 (one year ago) link

i’m taking my opinion of trae out of it & just looking at the situation rationally

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:36 (one year ago) link

heh

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:36 (one year ago) link

no but really if anyone can point out the team that’s gonna trade 3 first round picks for trae young i’m all ears

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:44 (one year ago) link

also analytics would tell you that trae young is a positive value contract but i’m not sure the results out in the real world exactly back that up

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:45 (one year ago) link

nets wizards lakers rockets all seem like reasonable trae targets those were just the first four i thought of

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:51 (one year ago) link

pelicans

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:51 (one year ago) link

the nets are a good one i should've had them in there. that would be a pretty ideal situation for him & if the hawks could pry DFS or cam johnson loose it could be a good one for them too

the rockets maybe out of pure desperation i could see it but trae young-josh green is a backcourt pairing directly from the mind of satan

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:55 (one year ago) link

*jalen green, the rockets are satanic like that tho

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:56 (one year ago) link

if this harden reunion doesn't come to fruition i could def see them doing something crazy/reckless

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 11 April 2023 19:57 (one year ago) link

getting harden back would be even crazier

lag∞n, Tuesday, 11 April 2023 20:10 (one year ago) link

Trae in Houston is too good I need it

four square ups... no punches thrown (Spottie), Tuesday, 11 April 2023 20:13 (one year ago) link

hmm klutch trae is klutch too were through the looking glass here people

Sources: Atlanta is promoting its G League College Park GM Tori Miller to a Vice President position with the Hawks; she becomes one of NBA's highest-ranking women in a front office. The agreement was completed by Klutch Sports, marking its first woman basketball executive deal.
