dame/adams p-n-r would be p rowdy

hollow your fart (m bison), Wednesday, 19 June 2019 21:06 (nine months ago) link

not sure he fits w/ nurk but also not sure nurk is playing this year. all pdx has to give up is a buncha awful expiring deals which no one cares about that anymore

Clay, Wednesday, 19 June 2019 21:10 (nine months ago) link

aw yeah forgot about nurk

hollow your fart (m bison), Wednesday, 19 June 2019 21:25 (nine months ago) link

Problem with Adams is he’s overpaid, 22nd highest salary in the league next year as of right now. Obviously he’ll fall in those rankings after free agency but honestly he shouldn’t be in the top 50 probably

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Thursday, 20 June 2019 02:10 (nine months ago) link

i dunno he's pretty good

ciderpress, Thursday, 20 June 2019 02:13 (nine months ago) link

i'd be wary if the thunder are really open to moving him. he already seems like someone who is going to have a short career.

call all destroyer, Thursday, 20 June 2019 02:24 (nine months ago) link

why? he's been v v healthy (he's only missed 25 games in SIX YEARS) and he's only 25! he's a stout defender who inhales rebounds (his numbers are artificially low since he's deferring so many to russ) and is a crazy efficient scorer. that contract is def rich, but it's only two years left on it then you've got his bird rights at age 27. celtics were gonna pay more than that for al horford who is similarly productive and is 33.

hollow your fart (m bison), Thursday, 20 June 2019 02:32 (nine months ago) link

yeah

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 02:57 (nine months ago) link

thunder r just trying to get under the cap

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 02:57 (nine months ago) link

I think Horford is way way better than Adams but point taken about their ages

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:05 (nine months ago) link

yeah

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:05 (nine months ago) link

i think adams will be better over their respective next contracts

ciderpress, Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:06 (nine months ago) link

possible

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:06 (nine months ago) link

or the rest of his contract vs horford's next i mean

ciderpress, Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:07 (nine months ago) link

yeah, thats what i was getting at. horf is a more versatile defender, but will he be at age 36 or 37?

hollow your fart (m bison), Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:31 (nine months ago) link

The lakers just keep delivering the goods

The Lakers reportedly didn’t fully understand the cap ramifications of the Anthony Davis trade until after their initial talks with the Pelicans. https://t.co/4Kiykq1yrL pic.twitter.com/IZaEDatnLN

Also I’m just posting any and all juice don’t even care who’s reporting it this point

Brooklyn might have doubts about signing Kyrie Irving if he isn't bringing KD with him, per @NYPost_Lewis pic.twitter.com/NWzQfZbdeZ

i just have a feeling about adams. he makes me nervous.

call all destroyer, Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:48 (nine months ago) link

and xp it was extremely obvious that the lakers didn't understand the cap when they agreed to the reported version of the davis trade. rob pelinka is an idiot.

call all destroyer, Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:51 (nine months ago) link

How has he kept his job idgi

big city slam (Spottie), Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:57 (nine months ago) link

amazing there are like 50 million amateur cap experts online and yet the gm of the nbas most famous franchise has no idea

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 03:58 (nine months ago) link

Seriously just drop like 10k for one of those twitter nerds to consult with you for a few weeks lol

big city slam (Spottie), Thursday, 20 June 2019 04:01 (nine months ago) link

i forget what pod i was listening to but it was saying that the lakers have cap experts on staff and pelinka probably just never checked with them.

call all destroyer, Thursday, 20 June 2019 10:37 (nine months ago) link

as y'all were discussing above, really interested to see what NOP does with the #4. I think this draft is a crapshoot after Zion and maybe Morant so I'd rather have just about any really good established player assuming he doesn't cost a ton. I really don't understand why everyone is suddenly excited about this Darius Garland kid. maybe he'll be great but he played like four games in college and he was the #16 recruit in his class coming out of high school:

http://www.espn.com/college-sports/basketball/recruiting/playerrankings/_/class/2018/order/true

I've heard people point out that Kyrie only played a handful of college games too, but he was a much more highly touted recruit. not sure what I'm missing here, I guess he crushed the combine or something.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Thursday, 20 June 2019 12:50 (nine months ago) link

haha this shit doesn't surprise me in the least! Palinka is a disaster

(•̪●) (carne asada), Thursday, 20 June 2019 13:04 (nine months ago) link

garland was a five-star recruit, number 2 PG in his class (behind Tre Jones). Kyrie was the #1 overall player, but still, Garland was a hugely hyped recruit.

old cloud yells at man (voodoo chili), Thursday, 20 June 2019 14:47 (nine months ago) link

my point was that he was #16 in his class, played 4-5 games of competitive basketball, and now he seems to be trending towards being the consensus #4. like, Coby White made a similar leap, but at least he balled out for an entire season.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Thursday, 20 June 2019 14:51 (nine months ago) link

it's a combination of a weak-ish class past #3 and lots of teams needing PG help. i'd take white over him personally, but i'm not an nba scout.

old cloud yells at man (voodoo chili), Thursday, 20 June 2019 14:52 (nine months ago) link

whether youre the 3 or 15 rated guy on rivals isnt that relevant to the nba really, nbas gonna make its own judgements

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 15:00 (nine months ago) link

i dont understand what the celtics are up to

Boston has offered center Aron Baynes -- $5.4M expiring contract -- into salary cap space elsewhere, league sources tell ESPN. Without Kyrie Irving and Al Horford on the books, moving Baynes without taking back salary could get the Celtics to $23M in space.

im reading twitter replies to boston sports writers to lean all the best information now

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 15:15 (nine months ago) link

There must be somebody in play for something near that salary they could trade a few picks for. Maybe Steven Adams?

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 20 June 2019 15:15 (nine months ago) link

woj thinks there will be trades

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 15:16 (nine months ago) link

horf for capela is rumored

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 15:17 (nine months ago) link

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 15:17 (nine months ago) link

#Celtics have picks 14/20/22 in first-round of tonight's #NBADraft,@GwashburnGlobe reports Boston's trying to trade up to take Vanderbilt PG Darius Garland (compared to #Blazers' Damian Lillard).

C's also targeting "major draft night deal" for #NBA vet. https://t.co/NPQ65uGziv

lag∞n, Thursday, 20 June 2019 15:22 (nine months ago) link

New Orleans boss David Griffin trying to get another first-rounder and also a player on a good contract for the No. 4 pick. Told there have been discussions between Pels No. 4 pick and Minnesota involving No. 11 and Robert Covington.
