Last night really showed that the Simmons-Embiid pairing is holding both players back.

Would Philly move Embiid?

Kings send Barnes, Hield and protected future 1st rounder?


1.) 19 Apr 2019 21:53:27
I think Philly riots if Embiid gets traded. The only way I could see it is if it is like a Brandon Roy situation where they know Embiid only has a few years left or something.

2.) 19 Apr 2019 22:05:23
If I was running phili, I’d strongly consider it. I don’t think his body is going to last more than maybe a few more years.

3.) 19 Apr 2019 22:37:04
Portland trainers rehabbed B. Roy incorrectly, so that wasn't as telegraphed as it seems. Embid needs a surgery of some kind, weight loss maybe in the off season. Top center in the league when healthy, so hield, Barnes, protected 1st.

4.) 19 Apr 2019 23:37:20
Jorga- he has missed more games than he has played. got to sell before next major injury.

5.) 20 Apr 2019 14:36:50
Regardless as to whether they would move him or not, Kings ain’t getting him for that package.



15 Apr 2019 01:02:02
Crazy scenario for Boston.

Imagine Boston gets the #2 pick vua Sacramento. This jump in the lottery make the Grizzlies pick convey this year as well.

With their 4 picks, Boston drafts Ja Morant, Bol Bol, Edwards from Purdue and Williams from Tennessee.

Let Irving walk this year and Horford next year. Resign Rozier at the same number as Smart. Tell New Orleans to pound sand about trading for AD.


1.) 15 Apr 2019 10:09:10
Yup, that's crazy. Problem is, Ainge isn't crazy. He's pretty damned smart and he wants AD. He will probably get AD.
The other issue I have with this, is they are a championship driven team. They could or would not have 4 rookies on that team. If they were a lottery team, I might see This, but they are not.
Why would they rebuild now, when they could be close to winning #18?

2.) 15 Apr 2019 15:01:05
I don't think Ainge would draft Bol, unless it was too good to pass up. Proven players are still worth more than draft picks. ZW is garnering hype, and maybe he is the next James, but that's at least a few seasons away, AD is gift wrapped, ready to go.

3.) 15 Apr 2019 15:02:09
it wouldn't be so much a rebuild as a retool, and I've thought about this as well. I like AD a lot, but it really depends on how much they want for him and if they think he will actually stick around.

Either way, the trade for AD and the decision on Kyrie can't happen until after the draft, and I really doubt that NO would want anyone other than Morant at #2, so you have time to think. Ja could easily be the best player to come out of this draft, and with him already in tow, they have a lot of bargaining power on what else goes to NO. If Griffin is stubborn on wanting too much, DA should feel comfortable moving forward.

The ideal would be if Memphis' pick wound up at 4. That would give them someone worthwhile, but probably not an immediate impact like the top two or three guys should have. I don't think I would take Bol at 9 anyway. I'm looking at him with that Clippers pick being a good gamble, but 9 is a bit too high for my taste.

4.) 15 Apr 2019 15:03:13
Many reasons why JoeB, including that they do not look like a serious Championship contender right now, don’t have any control whether Kyrie comes back or not, and understand that with no Kyrie, AD is unlikely to re-sign there after next season.

I will give Ainge something, he is smart. If he goes into this offseason with the feeling that Kyrie could walk, and can’t close an AD deal that possibly will convince Irving to stay, I could see a mini reset.

5.) 15 Apr 2019 18:24:05
The best part is that they have the assets to keep retooling as is. They've actually played very well when Kyrie sits, despite him being their most talented player. That could just be an anomaly, but it does go to show the talent on the rest of the roster. If they have the opportunity to bring in a Morant, they might see that as being just as good, and then they don't have to deal with the Kyrie headaches that seem to follow him around.

Even if they don't bring in that top pick, they might decide they feel fine moving forward with Rozier and paying the man. Either way, Kyrie/ AD or the rest of the young pieces they currently have, they should have a pretty lengthy championship window. It'll be very interesting to see what direction Danny goes.

6.) 15 Apr 2019 19:37:56
I was also thinking a "retooled" Celtics roster will still be competitve against a Raptors team minus Kwahi, a 76ers team minus one of their FAs and a limited Embiid, and a Milwaukee team that has its own FAs to resign and limited financial market.

7.) 15 Apr 2019 21:18:13
Bledsoe opted for the most friendly contract possible. The Bucks are sitting pretty going into next season. Even if they lose 2 players they would like to keep.



12 Apr 2019 03:50:18
Orlando long-term salary sump?

Orlando trades A. Gordon + 2019 1st rounder

Sacramento trades H. Barnes.


1.) 14 Apr 2019 01:34:25
Why would the Kings do this?

They have a backlog of bigs with Bagley III and Giles needing more minutes. Adding Gordon to the mix would only stunt their growth and his contract would make resigning their players who are still on their rookie contracts that much more difficult.



31 Mar 2019 22:41:21
Sac: S&T Willie Cauley Stein (3yr/ $35 mil)

Miami: Whiteide + 2019 1st rounder.

Saves Miami over $30 mil in luxury tax for next year.


1.) 01 Apr 2019 03:31:09
If you were lucky to have the Heat bite on salary savings this could happen without the pick

Kanter is a better player than WCS. I wouldn't pay Kanter 8M, or more than anyway. Why would the Heat want WCS when they have Olynyk, and Adebayo?

2.) 01 Apr 2019 12:52:50
I take defense over offense at center any day of week. Kanter misses post scoring opportunities consistently.

3.) 01 Apr 2019 14:30:20
Shizzee are saying WCS is a defender, or better at defense than Kanter? Use your words!

4.) 01 Apr 2019 15:11:59
Would say Kanter and WCS are on the same talent level. However, with the Nurkic injury, I don't think the Blazers are going to let Kanter go without offering a one-year deal in the $12 mil range.

5.) 01 Apr 2019 15:49:34
I highly doubt it, the blazers, or anyone else. Kanter is junk.

6.) 01 Apr 2019 17:05:34
Kanter is a great backup center or a disappointing starting center. Definitely not junk, just not a starter.

Portland can’t offer Kanter anything above MLE. They’re over the cap and don’t have any bird rights. Same with Hood and Curry. I think they’ll let Kanter walk and try to hold onto the other two.

Hopefully Collins takes a step forward this offseason and he can start at center to start next season until nurkic comes back. That has to be Portland’s plan. Then have Leonard back him up. The biggest problem would be if Aminu leaves and they can’t fill the hole at PF. Do you go small and start two of Layman/ Harkless/ Hood? Do you dare play Leonard and Collins together in the starting lineup?

7.) 01 Apr 2019 18:29:47
Bmiller, draft a Grant Williams, PJ Washington or Jontay Porter in thr 1st round?

Try to purchase the Kings second 2nd roubder to dradt Tillie?

8.) 01 Apr 2019 19:23:38
I don't like anything about Kanters game other than he is good for the blazers now as a substitute. All other options are better for future plans. Blazers don't have a full MLE, they signed Trent using it, and also Seth Curry. Kanter, M. Leonard is a wash. One plays post, one plays perimeter, both stink on defense. At least Leonard has some freakish size/ athleticism going for him.

9.) 01 Apr 2019 21:21:07
Kanter has one elite thing (rebounding) going for him. Most great bench players are one trick ponies, but elite at that one thing.

Yeah, I never really wanted Kanter in Portland. His defense isn’t just bad, it’s statistically the worst in the NBA of any center of the last few years (maybe second behind okafor) .

I think Collins is by far the best option starting center moving forward without Nurkic. He’s got the raw skills of a top tier defender, and has a lot of offensive moves that make me feel like he can be great if he figures it all out. Might as well give him all the minutes at the start of next year and those him into the deep end.

10.) 02 Apr 2019 02:08:26
Kanter can rebound.



24 Feb 2019 05:31:13
1 July salary dump trade

Clippers trade Gallinari + 2019 1st round draft pick (assuming that they are not top 3 after the lottery) .

Kings trade Bjelica + 2019 2nd rounder (Orlando)

Saves Clips around $15 mil for second max FA while Kings would have a shot at drafting DeAndre Hunter.


1.) 24 Feb 2019 05:40:18
For Bjelica? This is a Joke right?

If the Kings offer Oubre 4 years/ $60 mil, does Phoenix match?

Matching this offer + salary cap hold for 1st round pick pretty much ties up most of Phoenix's available cap space (assuming Johnson opts in and Ferdette+Spalding are waived)

Phoenix prepared to go over the cap for a team that hasn't been close to the playoffs?


1.) 18 Apr 2019 06:32:03
I like that for kings. What if barnes opts out.



13 Apr 2019 00:51:30
I know I am a total homer with this, but.

If Durant opts out, Does Sacramento get at least a meeting with Durant? Please consider the extremely nice things Durant has said about the organization this season, playing for a coach that you already know and like (assuming Luke Walton is hired), being the MAN of his own team and the "favorable" coverage he will get from the local press.

I know the obvious downsides.


1.) 13 Apr 2019 01:31:37
The Kings can offer a supermax?

2.) 13 Apr 2019 02:07:15
If the Kings waive all their cap holds and not offer WCS a QO, the can create around $35 mil in cap space. If they offer WCS a QO, then Kings will be short about $2 mil for a max offer. Can always S&T someone back to the Warriors like Swanigan (prefer Barnes) .

3.) 14 Apr 2019 01:44:56
I doubt it. There are just to many big market teams with cap space.

4.) 14 Apr 2019 14:00:06
Durant go's to NY
I never thougt about sacramento as destination for Durant, but i would like to watch that team.



08 Apr 2019 14:15:28
Worse team (situation) to win the lottery and draft Zion?

Lakers? Pairing him with Lebron seems like a poor fit.


1.) 08 Apr 2019 14:37:29
I'd trade Kuzma immediately probably, but BOS is doing a similar experiment now with Multiple talents at the 3/ 4, and I think it's a log jam, but come playoffs they have match-ups, and injury protection.

2.) 08 Apr 2019 16:12:03
Bulls. No guard that passes and other young bigs to share minutes.

3.) 08 Apr 2019 18:28:13
Carter, jr

And then sign Irving.

4.) 08 Apr 2019 19:43:26
Fredman who in that lineup plays defense?

5.) 08 Apr 2019 21:47:48
Saying “And sign [insert all star]” is easy. Actually doing it is not.



01 Apr 2019 22:48:23
Does Zion stay at Duke if the Knicks win the lottery?


1.) 02 Apr 2019 01:32:03
No, too much shoe money as a pro.

2.) 02 Apr 2019 21:56:54
Yeah, no chance. Maybe he tries to force his way out of NY, but I’d guess he just plays wherever.

3.) 04 Apr 2019 02:03:37
He is more likely to stay if the Sacremento Queens drafted him.

4.) 05 Apr 2019 02:00:33
Look at the two teams. I’d take playing for the Kings over the Knicks by a lot. The Kings have some serious talent.

I kind of hope the Suns get him. Booker deserves an elite running mate and a playoff appearance at some point.

5.) 06 Apr 2019 21:55:12
HAHA yeah, because clearly every rookie hasn't said for years they'd love to play in madison square garden.

thats just utter nonsense. seriously.

6.) 07 Apr 2019 17:28:45
They say that because there’s a really good chance at being drafted by the Knicks, cause they’ve been bad for forever. Players also say that about just about any team.

7.) 08 Apr 2019 17:25:01
Also, “I’d love to play at MSG” and “I’d love to play for the Knicks” isn’t exactly the same. MSG is classic. The Knicks are a dumpster fire.

8.) 13 Apr 2019 01:18:12
Hamburger/ Notdrainer/? Why do you even bother? You are so much better than everyone with the hate filled ciriticisms. If coming on here to sow seeds of malcontent is your mission then why not just use Facebook, Reddit, or Twiiter. I'd recommend VOAT but they would eat you alive. Maybe that's a challenge for you. Good, go play now.



01 Apr 2019 01:24:40
Can Dallas get the KP trade voided with the whole "Knicks told us it was just extortion, not rape charges" complaint? If so, how does that impact both teams?


1.) 01 Apr 2019 03:27:26
They’ve already played games and half the players would be free agents anyway. I could see something with the salaries/ cap happening or maybe picks going back. The players union would probably lose it, if you tried to send players back.

I doubt anything would happen unless he’s convicted or at least KP going to trial, but what if the NBA gave the Mavs the picks back and KP, make the Knicks take on the players salaries that they dump since the Mavs wouldn’t have taken them on if they had known, left the players because it wouldn’t be fair to send them back, and KP doesn’t even get charged.

Also, if it’s true, the Knicks committed fraud. The Knicks front office and/ or Dolan getting arrested would be the most Knickish thing of all time. This could be crazy.

2.) 01 Apr 2019 03:49:12
They could if they can prove that, and don't want KP now. Not to augment the trade though. All or nothing.

3.) 01 Apr 2019 04:55:52
There’s no way the trade would get voided, it’s far too late for that. Maybe compensation of a first round pick.

4.) 01 Apr 2019 05:52:24
What if KP loses his visa over the result of this investigation and trial? Dallas would be out a ton. Worse case Dallas's picks are returned and the Knicks 2019 pick goes to Dallas for compensation for taking on Hardaway and Lee's deals?

Does this become enough for the NBA to force Dolan to sell the team?

5.) 01 Apr 2019 05:59:39
All picks should be returned and all players paid and contracts voided.

6.) 01 Apr 2019 13:03:16
What are you talking about? Did anyone possibly think this even slightly through.

Knicks go hey. KP is being extorted. And the mavs go ok. We want to trade. You don’t think they investigate in the slightest? If they don’t that’s the mavs fault. I mean why is he being extorted? A woman claims he raped her. End of story.

This is just the mavs and Cuban trying to backpedal. Again. He acts like a champion for women, but if it means he could win, screw it. Let’s just do it.

7.) 01 Apr 2019 15:29:35
I don't know about that notdrainer. The speed in which that trade went down may not have given the Mavs much time to "investigate". And NBA players get extorted a lot more often than the common fan hears about. But that doesn't "excuse" the Mavs from doing there homework.

However, this does explain why he was speding all his rehab time in Latvia instead of in NY.

II, I think picks should be returned, but I don't think the Knicks should benefit from a "free" salary dump of Hardaway and Lee. Since they are still under contract, they should be returned to the Knicks if the Knicks if the NBA find that the Knicks were deceptive in their sharing of information (kind of like sending altered medical information) .

Although, I am beginning to wonder if this information was released now to the public/ rest of the league to drive down interest in KP as he enters RFA.

8.) 01 Apr 2019 15:46:08
Nobody said squat to Dallas. They would have run away. I don't know what rules it violates with NBA BOG, but not one owner would want this to happen to them. Even if they don't like the easily dis-likable Cuban.

9.) 01 Apr 2019 16:10:39
Fredman that would be a slick move by Cuban, but I don't think he would throw those picks knowing beforehand. It's crazy because it's the Mavs of all teams that needed distance from sexual anything involving the press. Otherwise its a cheap deal on a good player going into a contract summer for a little bad PR, no biggie. There is enough there to know he basically had sex with a woman for an autograph, $68,000, and so far some bad publicity, and possibly rescinding an NBA trade. She knew what she was doing, but the Knicks have obligations to disclose, and I find it hard to believe they, and KP were forthcoming.

10.) 04 Apr 2019 02:15:23
You guys should get together and direct a movie. So many duplicate movies, we need more original ideas. Your plots are pretty interesting. 🤣🤣🤣.

11.) 06 Apr 2019 21:59:53
False jorga. The mavs have come out and stated clearly, they discussed extorsion. There is no investigation needed. You simply ask 1 quesiton, which if you fail to ask, you are an idiot. That question is. wait for it. extorted for what?

This is a non-story. It is just Cuban and the mavs trying to once again backpedal from their hypocrasy.

12.) 06 Apr 2019 21:56:00
They don’t have any obligation to reveal a thing. The onus is on the mavs to do their due diligence and ask questions. They make a rash foolish decision, it’s absurd that you blame the team accepting the offer.

As a Kings homer, I would want the Oubre signing done before trading Barnes and I would want a little bit more from Miami for Whiteside (maybe their 2022 2nd rounder or a 2020 1st round draft pick swap) .

As the resident Kings homer, no way are the Kings giving up anything close to that. OKC would be lucky to get 2 of those 4 pieces from the Kings.

Sorry. Accidently deleted portion of previous post. Reberson has no value and Schroeder has 2 years left on his deal.

Plus Schumpert was NEVER a playmaker when he was with the Kings. He was purely a "3 and D" wing type playing the 3. I didn't say anything previously because it was obvious you didn't know what you were talking about.
