Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

I like it, Detroit needs a decent proven coach that commands respect and is adaptable. Casey gets a nice long deal with a team that isn't terrible

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Feels like Casey and the Crapstons are doubling down on being Casey and the Crapstons. They should both gamble. I hate it more for Casey since Detroit is a bottom 5 job as presently constructed, but I guess he didn’t want to risk taking a year or two off

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Detroit’s probably a bottom 1 job in the league. Props to Casey for getting 5 years.

Not sure what the Jazz do with Exum or anyone else. They have a bunch of meh team options that they should probably decline, but none would be terrible then have Favors and Exum on massive cap holds. Could free up 19 million potentially but it would mean renouncing those 2 plus Thabo, Udoh, Neto and Jerebko. Exums gonna be good though. It wouldnt shocked me to see him get the 4/36 MLE from a team or to see him take a 1 year deal at less than his qualifying offer. Still so young and unknown that it’ll be interesting to see how he’s valued.

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

why would James rather play for the Sixers than the Celtics?

Tatum looks like he is a perennial all star and he has shown that high performance in high stress situations. He just seems like he has it.

James + another all star + Tatum GOAT on the Celts would be epic.

They just need to dump Kyrie and GH fast since they will turn into a ball and chain if they end up sucking post injury.

Yea Mario still has potential. My Pacers should know all about players possibly being way better than they looked at Orlando, and the 3 is their biggest need. Have a go at it Pritchard!

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

The son to LA area school thing was something Gary Payton said in an interview with black sports online.

Sounds kinda madeup tbh, like he was just shooting the ****, but who knows.

Indiana, Portland, NO, Washington would be the best fits I think.
Would LOVE to hear your 4 trade ideas

Thad+Bog+Jefferson for Love, Korver, Clarkson

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

For Love? he can't have much value with only 1yr left on his deal. Teams will have more cap room next summer and he should be a top 5 UFA on the market, I'd think he can get a 3-4yr close to max deal at worst. Similar to what Lowry/Millsap got last summer. So he has to be a big fav to opt out after '18-19 season.

If LeBron is gone then Cavs should be tanking so picks/cap filler for Love seems logical for all teams.

None of those teams have much to offer in the way of picks really, but a team that has a little more to offer then Love probably isn't going to want to re-sign with (although maybe he just takes a 5yr max if he can get it, as it will be his last big payday in the NBA since he turns 31 at the start of his next deal, assuming opt out)

Whoa Thad. On the one hand that opens up funner options this offseason, like chasing Gordon hard or trading for Love or something, but I think Thad was value at that price and probs median outcome from him declining is Pacers get worse

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Thad's been stuck on some of the ****tiest teams for so long now it's hard for me to picture him opting out to leave a playoff team. He went from 2 years with Hinkie to the worst team in the league tankWolves to the friggin Nets.

Maybe he suspects they're gonna trade him to the no-Lebron Cavs

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

Kanter said he was mulling an opt out too. And I can't imagine that happens.

My guess is Thad doesn't opt out once his agent explains what FA is likely to bring.

Re: 2018 NBA Offseason

I think Philly says no pretty fast. Love is gonna need to be paid a big extension in a year and signing him would likely mean Saric is gone.

Redick/Love on the same team seems like a bad fit defensively as well. Saric is younger than him and more of a 2way player.



In other news, seems like SA/Kawhi are on their way to patching things up. Amazing what 5 years/219 million can do for a relationship.
