    Doesn’t matter. IT won’t sign if Cam Payne is on the team, let alone how do you fit him into the lineup.

    Either J.J. Barea or Isaiah Thomas would be a soilid addition.

    The James Harden trade is now complete with additional compensation to Pacers.

    It's starting to look like they are more interested in managing and spreading out the impact of the virus rather than preventing it, almost the Scott Atlas approach. Given that they are dealing mostly with a young and healthy population, I could see it working but then it inevitably spreads through family and friends into a much more vulnerable population. The league is trying to prevent the outward spread but a lot of players are apparently resisting.

    The number of NBA players testing positive was really low for awhile. Now it seems to be more widespread.

    I think it would be smart to preemptively postpone some games, like the Suns last game with the Wizards, rather than risk the virus spreading.

    The management approach to the virus does seem to be winning right now where it is anticipated teams will have players on health and safety protocol.

    Kyrie Irving's return to Nets is likely Wednesday and Friday games against Cleveland.

    The Heat vs Pistons game today will be delayed or postponed.

    No idea how valid but apparently there's a rumor the Bulls are offering Zach LaVine to the Warriors in exchange for Jordan Poole, Kelly Oubre, Erich Paschall, the Twolves #1 pick and the Warriors top 10 protected pick.

    Personally as a Warrior and UCLA fan I think that's too much. Zach can really score but he doesn't play any defense at all, it's worked with Wiggins, they got him to buy in, so maybe they think they can get Zach to buy in too but I would NOT want Paschall in the trade. Oubre, Poole and the picks absolutely ok with it, but Paschall is arguably the key to the Warriors 2nd unit success, moving him would be a bad idea IMO.

    That's a lot for someone like Lavine. That sounds more like a package for Harden or a legit All-Star.
