They both re-signed… and left, Harden left because the owner is a cheapskate.
I wasn’t even counting George, he forced his way out in no time.
Superstars don’t get traded in the NBA unless they want to get traded.
I think it’s more likely that SGA forces his way out of there in the next 2 years than seeing anyone force their way in.
Again, it's not always about the city for some players, it's forcing their way to a team with a good chance at titles - and I can see that with Giannis.I don’t see any star player forcing their way to OKC.
It’s the least appealing destination in the league.

Not to mention even if OKC isn't the first choice the team doing the trading is likely to very much prefer them for the amount of assets they have that no one else can compete with, so the player just may have to settle.
Some crazy crap in the water. Gambo says Lillard happens in 24 hours
My Geoff my lawn post of the day is…why are giving random nba players hot mics to talk into? I don’t really care what the Austin River, Myles turner’s, etc have to say.lol
He seems to also think Ayton may be a part of the deal... with Nurkic coming our way.
Yuck. Ayton, even as frustrating as he can be, is significantly better than Nurkic.
Nurkic is a hair above JAG status and has zero potential to improve. He also misses a lot of games with injury.
Yeah, this one would make no sense to me even if it included 4 firsts and three swaps. For his career he's averaged just over 50 games per season and there isn't much to like about his game other than some stats.Nurkic is not good and hasn’t played 60+ games since 2019
That’s a big downgrade. I wonder if picks would be coming back to the Suns to kind of restock the cabinet
I don’t think he was fine in Charlotte. They made zero effort to retain him.
I’m not saying he’s a cancer, but I don’t think guys like playing with him. I expect him to drive dudes like Embiid and PJ Tucker nuts with his terrible decision making.
George was fine in OKC. Kawhi made the Clippers trade for him but prior to that there were no demands by PG-13 that he wanted out. That's part of the reason the Clippers had to pay so much for him, OKC were competing at the time. They then elected to trade Russ and blow it up completely but they would have kept course with Russ and George if Kawhi didn't throw a wrench in their plans.
Marcus Bagley signs with the 76ers.
Given the recent talk about Oubre, I was amused to be hit by this pop-up ad just now.

That confused the hell out of me. I was like "When did Marcus Bagley play for ASU? Dude went to Duke." and then was surprised he was a free agent that drew essentially no Interest. I would have kicked the tires on a minimum deal for sure. Then I realized that's is Marvin Bagley's brother. The Bagley's parents are cruel for giving them such similar names.
While true, "parts of 3 seasons" is a pretty generous description. Didn't he play like 15 games in total? I remember how excited I was when Bobby Hurley landed both Bagley and Josh Christopher...Marcus Bagley signs with the 76ers.
