Orlando Magic situation

Peoples !!

I'm not interested in Chet Holmgren I don't want him on my team

I'm okay with Paolo Banchero

I mostly want Jabari Smith Jr on the magic

I'm very high on Jabari Smith Jr

I'm not high on Chet Holmgren @ all

I don't care Chet Holmgren is Jalen Suggs best friend

This dude skinny asf & he is overrated

If Magic drafted Chet over Jabari & Pablo imma be very upset

Agree0 Disagree0

You didn’t want Wagner either.

11 Jan 2022 15:58:11
I’m incredibly excited to see what Chet can do in the NBA. He’s got a chance to be amazing. But I totally agree with “I don’t want my team to take that gamble”.

He seems like he’s going to be Bol Bol, or he’ll be Giannis. And there’s no middle ground.

11 Jan 2022 16:24:55
Talent wise him and Bol are pretty similar. Chet has the advantage with IQ and motor and understand the game a lot better.

11 Jan 2022 19:27:06
Maybe a Bargnani floor instead?

11 Jan 2022 23:01:34
I wouldn’t put the floor that high. I think he could be a really terrible player. Thon Maker is my floor for him.

No I don’t want Chet on my team I want Pablo or Smith Jr

Magic should trade down for Smith Jr.

11 Jan 2022 13:13:18
If Keegan Murray is still on the board @ #23, then Kings are trading up.

Early prediction NBA Allstar 2022 game roster

West: CURRY, Doncic, George, LeBron, and Jokic

East: DURANT, Young, DeRozan, Giannis and Embiid

East: Harden, LaVine, Butler, Tatum, Beal, Ball and Allen

West: Paul, Booker, Mitchell, Davis, Gobert, Towns and Morant

Coaches: Monty Williams and Billy Donovan

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jan 2022 17:32:45
I don't see Allen making the ASG tbh. Garland if at all.
I think Siakam gets in for the last frontcourt spot.
Maybe FVV>Ball, though IDK the rest of the league's take on that.

10 Jan 2022 01:01:25
Take Anthony Davis out please.

10 Jan 2022 02:45:59
When you say Ball, do you mean Lamelo or Lonzo?

10 Jan 2022 02:50:34
I think Herro should get some consideration for that last spot on the East.

10 Jan 2022 08:11:44
Agreed with Fredman, Herro has been phenomenal all season long, i would argue that he deserves it better than Butler because of the games played.

10 Jan 2022 15:19:00
I think it's rather obvious that Ball means LaMelo in this case.

12 Jan 2022 16:46:28
Cmon, who disagreed with Casual. Lonzo isn't making the all star.

08 Jan 2022 16:53:34
According to Bleacher Report (Yea, I know)

Some executives around the league view McCollum as a negative trade asset, one the Blazers would need to send with compensation to get him off the team’s books.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jan 2022 21:35:07
Seeeesh. Blazers won't ever attach an asset. They would rather keep the guy.

09 Jan 2022 05:44:30
Lillard will be joining him soon.

09 Jan 2022 16:52:36
There were rumors that a team was willing to give up a top 10 pick for him this last summer. There’s no way his value has fallen off that much.

He’s a guy that doesn’t fit everywhere, but I don’t think Portland would find it hard to move him when to do it.

And no, Lillard won’t join that club. No possible way. In a world where Westbrook had value up to this last summer, Dame will have value for years to come. An injury doesn’t instantly make him valueless.

09 Jan 2022 19:25:52
I'm not saying it's the case right now but it could be just around the corner for both of them. Portland should act quickly because their value is on the decline.

09 Jan 2022 20:14:57
Seems like nightcap doesn't really like the Blazers especially Lillard.

09 Jan 2022 22:30:46
I have nothing against the Blazers or Lillard, but we all know he's on the wrong side of 30 and what his future earnings look like right? Paying a guy for what he's already done is bad business.

10 Jan 2022 01:03:05
I’d pay that much for the 2nd best PG in the league.

10 Jan 2022 02:52:21
I think Ja is seriously coming for that 2nd best PG title.

10 Jan 2022 04:46:56
With the way he’s leading us to a top 4 spot in west so far I can definitely see it.

07 Jan 2022 17:04:57
What deal would put Chicago over the top (currently 1st in the East)?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2022 18:04:23
Making a youth (some combination of Williams/ White/ Picks) for Jerami Grant move could do it. I think they’re already solidly a contender though, but another above average starter would make them that much more dangerous.

07 Jan 2022 18:08:14
Also, I think Chicago should have taken Nance instead of Jones and a first. Nance would be a great role player for them.

07 Jan 2022 21:09:51
I think the guard depth is pretty good to shop White

Maybe for Hachimura or Toppin?

Wizs have ton of forward youth already. White can be insurance for Beal

Knicks can use a young PG with good potential and shooting. Could strive off ball with Randle/ RJ handling play making.

07 Jan 2022 21:10:38
Could you also imagine how much more fun and electric Bulls would be with Toppin catches lops with Lavine?

05 Jan 2022 00:23:46
Orlando Magic situation

Would Magic trade Fultz & Issac next season?

Once they play this season get their value up

I'm Magic fan but I don't trust Issac to stay healthy

If he can imma be shocked always be injured

Magic has so many good guards

Is it Fultz odd man out ?

Peoples give me y'all opinion

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2022 14:03:57
Give it a while. You have Fultz, Suggs, Hampton, and Anthony. You can wait and see.

05 Jan 2022 18:45:41
I think the move is to hold off and first see what they can do in free agency. If they could swipe someone like Deandre Ayton, they could then put Fultz, Issac, and their picks together and trade for anyone who became available. They are really in a great position.

04 Jan 2022 16:07:44
Curious what anyone thinks the value of Mo Bamba, Jalen Smith, or Jaxson Hayes would be as Raptors targets. Does some combination of Boucher, Flynn, and/ or picks get something done?

Bamba is an RFA this offseason. With Carter Jr. locked in for longer term on a lower salary, does it make sense for the Magic to try and retain Bamba? Do the Raptors take a chance in free agency or try and lock him up now?

Jalen Smith and Jaxson Hayes are both young and raw in their own ways, but could fit the Raptors long term plans if given the opportunity to develop more in their system. Both are also stuck behind stud starting C's and veteran backups currently.

Boucher offers value as an expiring contract with flashes of his old self. He's not going to move the needle that much for any team, but could be a valuable short term insurance policy for a contending team like the Suns going into the playoffs.

Besides being buried on this team, Flynn doesn't seem to offer much value to this system or roster as currently constructed. Would he hold more value to a team like the Pels (maybe more minutes? ) or the Suns (under Chris Paul's wing? ) .

They have all of their future picks and have proven how adept they are at developing players from any point of the draft (for the most part), so giving up a pick or two in the right deal wouldn't hurt their long game that much, at least in theory.

So what are your thoughts? Do any of these guys make sense and what do you think gets a deal done?

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Jan 2022 17:04:32
How much are you planning on paying Bamba as a RFA? Are you willing to trade assets to get Bamba and then watch him walk if offered a big payday?

I don't see Phoenix trading Smith with their current lack of bigs with Ayton and McGee out.

I have not seen anything in Hayes to make him worth trading for.

04 Jan 2022 17:13:14
I think you're missing the real void in the Raptors roster. Toronto should likely prioritize the backup combo guard position to upgrade the playoff 8 man rotation. They have an empty roster spot and could sign DJ Wilson to a rest of year deal for a development big. He showed real potential to play within the Raptors system. I agree with you that Flynn should be on the block. he obviously hasn't impressed the coaching staff enough to earn minutes. Banton has shown potential but he's far from ready for regular rotation minutes. Boucher still has nights where he makes a significant contribution, so I'd rather not move him if possible. What kind of combo guard could be had for Dragic, Flynn and maybe a pick or two?

04 Jan 2022 21:11:36
If I'm Orlando and I can get an expiring and a couple of 2nds for Bamba, I'd jump at it. He would drive me bananas if he were playing for my team. He's good if you only want rim protection, but focus on the word only because otherwise he's a poor defender. Don't really know much about Flynn but if he's cheap and can shoot, why not.

Haven't seen much of Hayes.

Jalen Smith is an interesting case but no point of trading for him if you don't get any matching rights when he becomes unrestricted after the season. A very head scratching move by Phoenix by not picking up his option after not giving him a chance.

If you can get anything of value for Boucher then count your blessings, but according to this post you're not aiming that high.

04 Jan 2022 23:49:58
I think what I'm looking at is what/ who the Raptors could bring in as a developmental piece that fits the timeline of their core a little better. I don't see them making any major moves (even at the deadline), particularly since they've only had their whole team together for a handful of games so far, unless they completely fall off a cliff. Barnes with more reps at the point with a fully healthy lineup could be scary.

I agree that a combo guard upgrade is needed. Not sure who's out there that might fit the bill for what they would be willing to part with. Josh Hart is interesting to me, but not sure if the Pelicans would give him up or if they would even value what the Raptors would be willing to offer. Maybe add a third team like the Mavericks to reroute Dragic to? Do the Mavs have anything NO might value?

Boucher has had nights, but generally needs a lot of minutes to make any kind of difference. Even then he's been wildly inconsistent. With Birch and Precious back and the way he's generally performed over the course of the season, I don't see him getting on the floor very much down the stretch unless one of those guys goes down again. But in that scenario, does he move the needle for this team more than a younger, cheaper guy with a potentially higher ceiling?

I don't think Flynn is a bad player. He showed flashes last season. I just don't think he fits this system and could benefit from a change of scenery.

I agree about DJ Wilson. I'd love to see him playing with this team fulltime. I could be wrong but my understanding (what I've read) is that signing him would put them into luxury tax territory. So barring another move to clear more cap space, they're more likely to stay the course to avoid the tax.

05 Jan 2022 00:01:36
I don't think Toronto gets anything for Dragic and Boucher. I think they should trade Siakam.

05 Jan 2022 00:32:21
Dragic is definitely a tough one. Tbh I only see him going anywhere via trade if it were part of a multi-team deal for a bigger star to make the salaries work.

As for Siakam, I'll go back to the "they've only played a handful of games together" argument. If this team can stay healthy and show they can win together with Siakam returning to form (i. e. make the playoffs), then let's see what they can do in the offseason to make some peripheral improvements. If they stay healthy and go nowhere and/ or if keeping him looks like it's going to take reps away from Barnes and hamper his development, then take a serious look at moving him in the offseason.

I like Siakam, but if you can plug some big holes and score a pick or two that might be more of what this team needs in the long run.

03 Jan 2022 18:12:34
I think there is an interesting message to be found within the Lakers-Cavs-Knicks trade involving Rondo.

The Cavs were sending the Lakers a partially-guaranteed ($500K) . However, if the Lakers waived Valentine they would be stuck with the $500K + $1.25 mil in luxury tax. So they sent Valentine to a team under the luxury tax with the cash to pay for his $500K and a little extra for NY's cap space (lets say $250K) .

This message? Lakers are starting to count pennies when it comes to this current roster and may not be open to adding additional salary at the trade deadline.

Agree2 Disagree2

04 Jan 2022 15:08:55
I didn’t see that as counting pennies. They simply made a prudent financial decision considering they didn’t want Valentine. It left them an open roster spot and didn’t hit their cap.

Smart? Yeah. Signs of them not spending in the future? I don’t think so.

If the move was there, why wouldn’t they save the money? They didn’t even have to give up any draft compensation to do it.
