76ers / Harrison Barnes 6'8" 3F GSW

■ Several weeks ago, I had the 76ers
signing Harrison Barnes @ 4-Years $80M;

■ I was hammered with post replies
saying the 76ers would never do that;
Someone posted that GM Colangelo would
be FIRED for even considering Barnes @
4-Years $80M; FIRED!

■ Look, my trades maybe off most of the
time, but I know the concepts of
salaries; NBA will be just like MLB
salaries when it comes to over paying
players, because of a need!

■ Barnes is 24 years old; 6'8 defensive
forward, who's offensive skills were
put on hold within the GSW offensive
system: Curry, Thompson, Green,
Livingston→ Get Real

■ Barnes performance in the NBA Finals
didn't kill GSW chances; The 2-Time
NBA MVP should have Steph'Up and
performed at his MVP level, so that
Barnes performance would have been
irrelevant; Barnes has NBA
Championship experience, an NBA Title
Ring, battle playoff tested, good &
bad, something the young 76ers roster
need; Watch how his game expands after
playing and practicing with the GSW

■ Well, I was wrong with posting the
76ers should sign Barnes @ 4-Years
$80M; Word now around the NBA circles,
is that the 76ers are going to offer
H. Barnes the MAX/ 4-Years $90M

■ Guess GM Colangelo is on the HOT SEAT
already; or does it mean, before you
criticize my salary offers from teams
to FA's, THINK, before you hit Reply!

■ Is Harrison Barnes inside the USA
Olympic Team ballin' right now;
■ Is Jerry Colangelo the head of the
USA Olympic Basketball Team Committee;
■ YES! Clap your hands, everybody, It's
Philadelphia→ ☆☆☆ Seventy Sixers

Starting lineup as of right now


solid bench that consists of newly acquired meeks, gordon, and dedmon.

Those are 8 servicable players.

Who should we go after? We need a back up PG and some depth on the wing. We're good on bigs. We have $37 million to spend.

Batum would fit nice... I think we should sign him for 3 years $45 million.

Buy low on Ty Lawson. Maybe a comeback season can be in store for him.

Throw all the money left at DeRozan. Vogel can turn him into a superstar.

Lakers 2016

Draft Ingram

Clarkson 4y 54m

Whiteside 4y 80m

Russell Williams
Clarkson Young
Ingram Brown
Randle Nance Jr
Whiteside Zubac Black.

Will Zubac come over this year?

30 Jun 2016 01:41:28
Zubac is coming over. Teams wanted to draft and stash him by he wouldn't accept so that's why he fell.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 01:53:36
I think if lakes get Whiteside, and they would have the cap think derozan joins too. Nice solid line up would love to upgrade at pf too.

I honestly think Durant stays, but just like Harden and Ibaka I think Westbrook will want out. He's a top 10 talent in the league and wants to go somewhere like LA.

LA may not have everything in terms of assets in a trade. And we don't need a rebuild. But there may be a team that could use one: Indiana Pacers. Hang with me.

Pacers were elite in the East not too far back. They suffered through George's injury and in theory could have contended in the east and fell flat. They made a few good moves this offseason but look very different with hill gone and young in. Say they have another rough start this season. The piece with the most value is George. Affordable contract for several more years.

Pacers need a fresh start and some excitement. Maybe a player like Oladipo could supply that? Lock him in and build around a guy that once upon a time brought some magic and excitement to Indy.

A three team deal built around oladipo + assets to Indy, George to OKC, and Westbrook to LA could be a big win for everyone.

LA gets their big star to open the new era after Kobe with Russ (assuming they resign him after) . Indy brings in a great controllable piece plus young assets to rebuild. OKC gives up Westbrook and Oladipo but get somehow scarier with George and Durant both on the wings. This also gives OKC cap room next offseason to retain Adams and Roberson without sacrificing talent with George on such a good deal.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 23:31:02
Doesn't make sense why OKC has to give up Westbrook and Oladipo. What do Lakers give up?

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 01:49:18
I agree I'm bullish on the Durant and Westbrook tandem. Although both are top 5 players making them most talented pair in the NBA I think they're almost fighting each other for dominance (and the ball) more than playing together. Earlier in their tenure I though Durant was clearly the better player and Westbrook needed to realize that and fall into his lane but now the difference in talent is much more blurred. If they got George, George would clearly be going to Durant's team and I think it could work.

My issue is after Pacer's moves this offseason (and them still having a considerable amount of cap space) I don't see them dealing George anytime soon as he is probably a top 5 player in the league as well. Their moves for Young and Teague gave them the fresh start and excitement (they aren't going to blow it up after one year) . A more likely scenario would be Butler instead of George.

Ultimately however I'm not sure why Lakers give up assets to get Westbrook this season (they'd likely have to give up considerable pieces) then hope to resign him with a depleted team post trade. Makes more sense to just wait and try and sign him for nothing next summer (they could always swing a similar deal with sign and trade if need be) .

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 18:09:53
I think a good scenario would be for New York to sign Joakim Noah, Jamal Crawford, and Ramon Sessions
Rose/ Sessions
Galloway/ Crawford/ Baker
Anthony/ Thomas
Porzingis/ Seraphin
Noah/ OQuinn/ Plumlee.

29 Jun 2016 18:18:34
I would resign afflalo too.

29 Jun 2016 17:45:15
My prediction is spurs keep same team and make tweaks like signing a center who can play defense block shots. I think ducan stays and ginobli go to new team. Next year stretch Parker and sign cp3.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Jun 2016 18:52:20
Ginobili will never go to a new team. Its either he plays another year or retires.

I don't understand why Duncan opted into his contract. That limits their cap space.

With the Nets looking to trade Jarrett Jack or waive him if no trade is found before the deadline and his contract becomes guarenteed, I feel he could have many suitors as a veteran backup point guard:
-Atlanta Hawks
-Charlotte Hornets
-Detroit Pistons
-Cleveland Cavs
-Miami Heat
-Milwaukee Bucks
-New York Knicks
-Houston Rockets
-LA Clippers
-Portland Trail Blazers.

What ya think about the knicks signing D. Wade? Then probably signing a decent big for cheap like a Noah or Gasol?

Agree0 Disagree3

29 Jun 2016 07:50:00
If Durant had to join either Lakers or Knicks, which team do you think he would join?

Would he join the Lakers and team up with a bunch of young players.

Or would he join the Knicks and their team full of players ready to compete for the 2011 Championship?

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 08:00:55
This is all hypothetical btw. I know there is a 0.0% chance KD signs with Lakers or Knicks.

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 14:10:34
LOL. i love how you make a post simply to bash the knicks. And the lakers, with their supreme young talent has equated to the second worst team in the league. Well done daniel.

But hey, at least you came to terms that james, durant and michael jordan aren't signing with the lakers because of their sunshine this offseason. Baby steps.

29 Jun 2016 16:02:42
So is Hamburger mikerockwell's new name this time around?

@Larrylegend33 exactly why I posted this. I knew he couldn't resist coming at me for talking about his Knicks LOL.

29 Jun 2016 17:32:11
I think Durant would only sign with Lakers is if my dream scenario happened with signing james, Durant, rondo, and Whiteside. Plus stretching young and dumping Williams and randle. Gives lakers 78 mil in cap. Or just something with teaming up with James. So Durant stays in okc because james staying in Cleveland. I think with that trade Durant tries to Beat them instead of join em.
Did read about Lakers taking on bogut and warriors agree to let Lakers sign barnes.
Lakes could still sign another player and upgrade at pf. resign clarkson. Make play offs or come close and give Philly pick 12 or higher. But i think lakes would make a trade to upgrade at point guard. I like Russell but lakes only need Ingram and Nance out there young players. Maybe pick 32 also. By trade deadline give up Russell, clarkson, Williams and randle for a great player.

Agree5 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 19:59:03
Same deal as Winston darkwing. I said this last week.

And your dream scenerio is so goofy. Ok. So they sign 3-4 Max players. Al because they have pretty sunshine? Lakers can't even get a meeting. Not even a meeting with durant. Say something?

Agree0 Disagree4

29 Jun 2016 20:58:01
True, there are many many issues with that scenerio. We all read the many times you were saying this. That durant and james and whiteside and rondo all were coming. The problem is, the lakers are essentially the worst team situation in the league behind the nets. This is clear in that durant flat out rejected meeting with anyone associated with the organization.

Your plan is to basically give up all the youth for a great player. It just doesn't make sense. Just as you want to give up the youth, other teams aren't going to give up a stud for that mixed bag. Additionally, the line up you have, with simply adding barnes and bogut will NOT be fighting for a playoff spot.

At this point, Bogut is merely an average bench player. He will give you 20 minutes a game. The warriors are so down on him, they are trying to get someone to eat his contract.

Basically, you are planning that the addition of barnes and ingram will give you a 23 win increase to put you near the 12 spot?

Barnes is not going to be the path for the lakers. In order to get barnes, the lakers will likely need to max him because other teams, sixers, are interested.

Its just so haphazard. I get it, my tone on here tends to be a tad harsh. But my points are grounded in reason.

The lakers will be terrible next year. Its just the case. Ingram is a couple years away at best. he is terribly thin and will need to gain weight to compete in this league. don't point to durant, durant has 30lbs on him and they are not the same type of player.

I think at this point, the best bet for the lakers is to try and get a younger veteran team, ride the terrible wave over the next year or two and hope things improve.

Its just a sad state that the lakers have become. They have no veterans on the team (which is essential to attracting top flight free agents) and the youth is entirely unestablished. I really can't see the lakers being better than a 25 win team next year.

All in all, they are a few years away from being even decent. You can mock the knicks if you want, but they have a solid core and it appears like they may add one or two upper level free agents. If they snag say noah and bazemore, a line up of:


is highly competative. Thus, free agents such as durant see the potential. Got it?

Agree0 Disagree3

29 Jun 2016 22:19:32
I've constantly stated TrueGM is the most dillusional person on this website.

@Hamburger btw why don't you question all the Knicks fans stating you guys are signing Durant cause you guys traded for, wait for it, DERRICK ROSE!

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 23:36:53
This is a friendly site. Not about being delusional or anything. It's about posting what you wanna see teams do. If any team had 70 mill in cap you can make up Tons of scenarios that you would like to see. If Knicks had 70 mil in cap with just Melo and prozingis they would get more hype. If Lakers didn't have cap they have they wouldn't even be talked about as much. I just seen a team won lottery 3 of four years then in finals next two. So your previous record don't count. That's why you rebuild and use cap to sign free accents and can turn anything around. You just look to nit pick any way but your really just a Lil boy. Your just a laker hater because new York can't and never did create a dynasty like the Lakers did. you think with rose Knicks are better. Why you think bulls traded him because no one wants to play with a hurt player who not half the player he was.

Let me see the Knicks win 10 banners in 30 years then you can talk knicks and Lakers talk.

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 23:39:24
LOLOLOL Rose, Melo, and Noah were all great players 4-5 years ago. Porzingis is overrated af. You guys are extremely happy with him, cause he was booed on draft night and everybody thought he would be a bust. He averaged 14 and 7 nothing special. But hey maybe you can also attract Howard as he seems to fit the 2011 championship squad as well.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 23:46:36
Durant would see the potential of a declining Melo, and Noah. Always hurt Rose. Guy I like in Bazemore, but will be overpaid. Durant much better option (GS, OKC, SA, BOS) . Btw Knicks haven't scheduled a meeting with him yet either so there's that. Worst rebuilding situation behind the Nets is laughable. The Durant Comparisons are dumb, but I wouldn't be mad when they're comparing him to a less athletic Paul George. But as I've seen and read by many sites/ videos, they all say Ingram still hasn't reached his athletic potential. Not to mention he can still grow into his body like Greek Freak as he's only 18. And you're acting like he's not going to gain weight and he's going to do drugs like he looks like and be a bum on the street. He was drafted 6 days ago. Give him a break.

Bogut is severely underrated by people. The disrespect he gets is real. I don't like him as a player but I recognize his game which is perfect for the Warriors.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 23:50:39
Lakers are in great situation to me. Two future stars, two good role players in randle and clarkson, cap space, if fail to upgrade have great chance to get another future star in draft next year. Good coach.

Agree2 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 05:29:30
I know this is far from realistic but what if the wolves can sign KD and Horford

*trade peck*

Rubio - Dunn
Wiggins - Lavine
KD - Shabazz
Horford - Garnett
Towns - Dieng

This team could become a dynasty easily with great defense (wiggins Dunn Dieng towns) and shooting (KD Lavine Horford)

Agree3 Disagree1

29 Jun 2016 12:38:43
I don't think they'd have cap for both of them, especially if Garnett is still around.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 14:12:15
If they trade pekovic, they end up with only about 40 million in salary. They can sign those two with that.

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Jun 2016 15:09:19
Oh true, I forgot about the trading of Peck, but who wants his contract? It would likely require salary back or giving up assets to dump his contract.

Agree1 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 17:09:52
Future first.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 22:32:35
NBA, definitely possible. There are teams willing to take on the salary for a future first. To be totally honest, I could imagine the lakers taking it on for a first next year. 1st, they need a center and if Pek is healthy, he's definitely respectable. and 2nd, they need picks.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Jun 2016 02:01:57
That would certainly be a scary team. I think its possible (especially if they move Rubio in addition to Pekovic) . I'm curious what is stopping free agents from seriously considering the Twolves since they are good young team with a good coach with no big name superstar you'd have to compete with and fair amount of cap space. I guess it may be a year or two early still and players aren't flocking to go to Minnesota however I think the league has taken notice that Twolves have one of the best future outlooks of any team in the nba. If they make a big step this season and make playoffs I'm curious if they become a player for a top free agent next summer.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jun 2016 02:04:38
I can see Knicks taking on pek who need a center for a future pick with experience like pek. Maybe he can help melo and rose shake off that rust from last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

29 Jun 2016 01:12:37
Chicago Bulls:

I'm curious to know what the Bulls have planned for the rest of the Offseason. I think they can still have a solid team. Maybe .

28 Jun 2016 23:17:43
If the Bulls wanna contend

Sign Dwight Howard to max
Sign Jeremy Lin to 2yr deal
Throw max contracts at Batum/ Barnes

Lin - Calderon - Grant
Butler - Dunleavy
Batum/ Barnes - McDermott
Portis - Mirotic
Howard - Gibson.
