Good thing you hoarded those assets Danny! Saw Butler and George get traded for peanuts and does this for a worse player. Absolutely incredible.

With Crowder and Osman Lue might even be convinced to play Lebron less than 38 minutes in blowouts.

This might be the worst trade in NBA history all things considered.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Any chance they put protections on the previously unprotected Nets pick? I believe the 76ers trade didn't have the protections on the unprotected Kings pick released until later.

If pick is ~top 5 protected, & has some other pick as backup, it becomes a lot less horrible.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

I mean, you could legitimately make the argument that all 3 of expiring IT, Crowder on his deal, and BKN unprotected #1 are more valuable than Kyrie on a max. Holy God.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

When your only competition in the East is imploding and you can make them better in the short term and wayyy better in the long term while making your team worse immediately and wayyy worse in a few years while all but guaranteeing the rival team stays together YOU JUST GOTTA DO IT

Kyrie makes 3/$60m (although he can opt out after 2 years, so it's basically a 2/$40m), so calling it a max when IT2 is eligible for a humongous deal after this year is a bit misleading.

I've already talked myself into IT2 & Crowder being products of BRAD & Kyrie never having played for a decent coach & it might be super exciting & a big upgrade...

...& if there is unreported protection on the Nets pick, then I've convinced myself to be excited, but if there's not...still kind of shocked at how bad of an idea that is.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

Thomas hasn't been medically cleared for training camp yet. Is it a bad trade if IT is diminished to the point that Marcus Smart should be starting over him?

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2017

trading crowder sucks but its not the end of the world if you project one of our 4 young wings to be able to fill the role.
