Don't see any other big deals happening today- just waiting to see where Marc gasol ends up (they've cleared out his locker), last I read was they were trying to work out a deal with the Hornets- could have implications on wither Kemba stays or not (for those that want him as a backup plan).

Also whether Conley gets dealt to the Jazz, or whether he and Gasol get sent to the Raptors (Hahn said Lowry's back is shot and won't last through the playoffs).

Don't think AD gets dealt, though maybe the Pelicans complete their perfect vengeance and deal him to the Clips (after getting the Lakers to implode)- that would be cold blooded!

Don't see us making any deals as we can't take on any extra salary.

Pelicans have truly counter-screwed the lakers. After leaking all the players the Lakers offered (which basically included the whole team) then refusing to deal, they've destroyed the Lakers team chemistry and left Lebron looking really bad (in addition to alienating all his team mates he's also been campaigning to get rid of the coach). Not sure how he turns this one around, especially with no big FA's lined up to go to the lakers in the offseason. They need to pray the Pelicans are bluffing.

Good point. Pels win either the revenge game, get an even better offer, or get a better offer and still make LBJ look like a back stabber

About time

Martin: Hezonja will be in the NBA next year.

For real. Sounds like hyperbole but this makes them jump up a level

If Dray Green can't stop Giannis one on one, Bucks can give GS a run for its money (ok a little hyrperbole)

Hornets miss out, could increase chances of kemba leaving? (Assuming they would have been better with gasol

I’m really looking forward to this years playoffs. Still think sixers should have targeted mirotic instead of tobias

Think about Toronto. With all of their success: they trade their coach (after he wins coach of the year); trade their best player for Kawhi (coming off an injury an expressed desire for sun, not ice); now trading for an old center -- and who knows perhaps ready to trade Lowry too (if someone willing to take his bad back)

Worse for them is lowry’s Back injury- Hahn said it’s basically shot and he might not make it through the playoffs.

Here’s the trade, not sure who most of the players are so can’t say if it’s good or bad:

Jonas at least could play in the past. It looked like they moved him to the bench in favor of Ibaka. Not sure why exactly

Toronto will have two very tough minded competitors in Kawhi and Gasol

I’m finding this hilarious/tragic to watch- he’s been absolutely thrashed by wow today, so it just looks kind of sad watching him sit in his empty office, playing on his phone

Shams has been good up to today though

I would take Delon Wright

Surprised at that haul for the sixers. I hope Fultz is able to turn things around, he needed a fresh start

Looks like Frank is safe! Thought the magic might make an offer for him, but now they’ve landed Fultz it’s not going to happen

The Clippers have quickly become a summer obstacle.

Wes Matthews getting bought out too, per Shams.

I approve of this approach or anything else that makes LeBron look bad.
