    I selfishly want to see Kyrie traded for Russ. We could see OKC 2.0 up in Brooklyn and see how good those 3 could be together in their primes and also it would be Kyrie and LeBron for one last run.

    ESPN doesn't even make a strong case for the Lakers finishing that high, mentioning how 9 players are over 32 so durability is a big issue there, and mentioning Davis' health and durability issues as well. It basically says if everything goes well, that's their ceiling. I don't argue with that...

    Lakers will struggle to hit 50 wins. I also think Denver will struggle depending on when/if Jamal Murray returns. I also think the Clippers will be better than that, likely are biggest competitor for the division.

    Roster ideas and rumors for Suns

    Yeah you can do a sign and trade but they have to wait until December 15 to trade them elsewhere. Sign and trades are viewed as one sort of transaction but resigning a FA is viewed as keeping them so that's why there is the waiting period.

    Yeah that doesn't add up. I like Mikal a lot but I don't think many teams would take him ahead of JJJ either.

    Roster ideas and rumors for Suns

    Nader can't be traded for a while, I believe not until December 15. You can't resign your own free agents and trade them later in the offseason. It would need to be one of our core guys, if another player is involved.

    Roster ideas and rumors for Suns

    That is the only league rule I could think of, that SA wants to dump someone with Thad and are waiting because they can't include Thad in a trade with another outgoing player right now. I think they need to wait 60 days to be able to make a trade with another player going out in a package with...

    You said he'd ask out after our 8-8 start last season. You have no clue what it will take to get him to ask out. Predicting he'll ask out every week isn't actually predicting anything, it's projecting your own negativity onto others.

    Booked is eligible to sign a max extension this offseason. I don't think it'll even be discussed but I don't think we'll hear anything for a while about him resigning. I believe we have 3 full seasons with him locked in going forward, so it kind of mirrors what we have Paul signed for.

    Roster ideas and rumors for Suns

    Maybe a 3 team where Ayton goes elsewhere but Philly has no need for him, at all, with Embiid at Center. Still don't like it. I think CP3 might murder Simmons if he passed up lay ups in an important game.

    Faried hasn't played in the NBA since the 2018-19 season. There's a reason for that. He's no longer a PF because of his lack of range and he's no longer capable of out hustling his opponents. No loss.

    2021-22 Around the NBA Thread

    I doubt it's the Thunder. I can't see them seriously engaging in talks and not getting it done because they have enough picks to make any deal work, if they're so inclined. Orlando makes some sense. They're not who i think of when discussing small market teams though. I'd say more medium sized...

    Roster ideas and rumors for Suns

    You put a lot more faith in rumors than I do. What rumors have proven legit during the James Jones era? I can't think of any. There were no rumors suggesting we'd sign McGee, trade for Shamet, trade for Craig (who we also learned almost signed last offseason), etc. Rumors in today's NBA or...

    Roster ideas and rumors for Suns

    How do you think the Suns don't believe Cam is a satisfactory PF? He started at PF in the bubble, started at PF during the season, and was the primary sub for Jae the rest of the year. They also haven't rushed out to add someone to take his role, which points towards them viewing Cam as...

    OT: Cedric Ceballos in ICU with Covid

    I've hoped for a positive update on Ced since this happened. Every time I opened this thread I'd get a knot in my stomach and prepare myself for bad news. I'm so glad he's passed the worst of it. Here's to hoping for a full recovery in time.
