taylor seems great, could be a really fun frontcourt in utah

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:04 (ten months ago) link

does simons actually have value across the league this question has never been adequately answered in my estimation

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:05 (ten months ago) link

simons is young enough that teams could talk themselves into unlocking something from him in the right situation

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:06 (ten months ago) link

so the mavs just traded back to salary dump bertans?

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:07 (ten months ago) link

damn it’s gotta be tough to be 3 inches shorter than your twin brother

dallas asset management never is trustworthy (d.a.m.n.i.t.)

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:07 (ten months ago) link

simons avg'd 21-4-3 on 45-38-90 splits last year playing next to dame, he's gonna be a scorer for someone but b/w dame and scoot and sharpe he's the odd man out

hahahah well done

Mavs just traded their pick that they tanked for lol.

Cashews Everything Around Me (Leee), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:08 (ten months ago) link

lol at the fans booing silver then cheering when announced a trade

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:09 (ten months ago) link

okc getting cason is good, though i guess they are planning for him to be a backup for a while

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:09 (ten months ago) link

seems like a very okc guy

The Mavericks are trading No. 10 and Davis Bertans to the Thunder for No. 10, sources tell ESPN.

picturing woj blind typing this as he’s on the air

k3vin k., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:10 (ten months ago) link

seems like a pretty fair trade

lag∞n, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:11 (ten months ago) link

woj was on russillo's pod and said he was going to try to lay off tweeting except for trade stuff. that's how quick the muscles can atrophy.

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:12 (ten months ago) link

tbh dumping bertans’ deal to move down from 10 to 12 is a pretty good move, the difference in expected value between picks 10 and 12 is basically nil

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:12 (ten months ago) link

the fashion stuff is tough too a bunch of kids with the same stylist and different favorite colors

k3vin k., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:12 (ten months ago) link

maybe cason wallace will be amazing but okc’s “guys” in the draft often suck lol

yeah particularly if they’re targeting someone they figure will still be there

k3vin k., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:13 (ten months ago) link

tbf theyve drafted like 20 guys in the last 5 years, a bunch of them will suck

xp

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:13 (ten months ago) link

wow hollinger had jett howard ranked in like the 50s lol

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:14 (ten months ago) link

lmao orlando!!!

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:14 (ten months ago) link

orlando going for the nepo baby backcourt with cole anthony

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:14 (ten months ago) link

reaches are almost as cool as trades

nah but even going back to like mitch mcgary, terrance ferguson… i mean presti had made a lot of good picks but they’re a team that really targets guys and is wrong on those a lot

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:15 (ten months ago) link

it’s crazy gradey dick is falling this far teams never learn

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:16 (ten months ago) link

vecenie had him 25, yikes

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:16 (ten months ago) link

it took him forever to get to the stage bc he was way in the back lol

Clay, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:16 (ten months ago) link

rough scene when your hype tape is narrated with "your dad was in the nba and was good so thats gotta rub off on him right?"

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:17 (ten months ago) link

*his dad, whatever

did something bad come out in his medicals or something? this is weird.

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:19 (ten months ago) link

probably medicals yeah

ciderpress, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:19 (ten months ago) link

allegedly hes not great in interviews (shy boi), and also he never passed in college (averaged 0.7 apg last year lol)

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:20 (ten months ago) link

Cason Wallace can take criticism

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:21 (ten months ago) link

yeah whitmore apparently has a weird game too

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:21 (ten months ago) link

By shedding Davis Bertans, the Mavericks now project to be able to use the non-taxpayer mid-level exception and bi-annual exception.

did presti owe nico harrison a favor

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:22 (ten months ago) link

okc probably gotta hit the salary floore

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:23 (ten months ago) link

i like lively he’s obv going to be a complete menace on the defensive end. but my god the mavs are absolutely obsessed with centers what is their deal

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:23 (ten months ago) link

hollinger was a big fan of lively's defense both as a rim protector and switch guy

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:24 (ten months ago) link

cubes is an alpha and respects the height-based status hierarchy

slai gorgeous-alexander (m bison), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:24 (ten months ago) link

sometimes i think about how the mavs made the west finals by essentially playing small forwards at center & then think about everything they’ve done after and wonder if i was part of some sort of mass public hallucination

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:25 (ten months ago) link

i mean when you can get a center that can't score or rebound you gotta do it

Clay, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:25 (ten months ago) link

do the celtics have a late 1st now i forget

ciderpress, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:25 (ten months ago) link

they have #25

call all destroyer, Friday, 23 June 2023 01:25 (ten months ago) link

howard can shoot but that’s it, really an atrocious rebounder for his side, incredibly slow and non-focused on defense

ludicrously capacious bag (voodoo chili), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:26 (ten months ago) link

duke is one of the only teams i saw like 5+ times this year, i came away really impressed by lively. he seems like a much better athlete than a lot of the bigs that have come out of there lately

J0rdan S., Friday, 23 June 2023 01:26 (ten months ago) link

Jett thanks all the people who doubted him!

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Friday, 23 June 2023 01:27 (ten months ago) link

did cuban write presti a $2 million personal check under the table

Mavs will now have the full midlevel exception, as well as a $17M trade exception. Full MLE should be particularly useful in adding a rotation player.
