what team could trade for B Simmons and what is his value?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2022 00:26:21
value is always in the eye of the beholder, but all anyone can see right now is a former DPOY candidate and All-Defense regular coming off a year off and then back surgery. a hugely risky proposition to give up anything of value and pay that salary for a dice roll. For Indy to take that risk at this moment could make sense. I think Detroit is too far in to their rebuild to risk it. Maybe the Rockets or Spurs could make it make sense and hope to cash in if he turns out healthy and better than ever. And Brooklyn can't afford to be wrong on this. they can't trade him for nothing to see him then become an AllStar again. They pretty much have to keep him and let him prove his value on the floor.

I think you have to factor in mental toughness pretty heavily as well, which makes me think he'd be better off in a "smaller" market like Sac, Indiana, Portland, OKC, Minnesota, Utah, etc, just to name a few examples.

Next you have to consider which of those teams has the assets to trade for him, along with who would have the personnel left over after a trade to best insulate his weaknesses, and finally which of those teams has assets that actually interest the Nets.

Utah has the draft capital after dealing Gobert. Maybe Simmons heads there as part of a larger Mitchell trade (if it happens, to the Knicks for example) .

Spurs? Grizzlies? Hornets?

26 Jul 2022 17:47:26
There has been local rumors of Simmons for Barnes+Holmes+pick to SAC if the Nets need to move Simmons to accommodate another Nets trade.

It's kinda feeling like the Kuzma/ Harrell for Hield trade from last off season.

22 Jul 2022 16:47:15
Of all the remaining free agents, who are you the most surprised hasn't found a home yet?

At a quick glance it seems like most of them are vets probably waiting for the dust to settle before picking a contender to ring-chase with.

Collin Sexton?

22 Jul 2022 17:53:37
Yeah I thought he would have been locked up sooner. Wonder what the hold up is.

22 Jul 2022 20:42:02
The only thing I can think is that he is not recovering for his knee surgery as well as he would like.

I find it interesting that Cleveland resigned Rubio before Sexton.

22 Jul 2022 22:03:21
Schroeder? Whiteside? Surely someone has to make an offer to Udonis Haslem, no?

24 Jul 2022 20:35:28
Whiteside to me falls into the "waiting and assessing contenders" category. I wouldn't be surprised if Haslem just retires and takes a front office or coaching job with the Heat or whoever their G League affiliate is. Sioux Falls?

22 Jul 2022 00:45:34
Would calling Sabonis a non-3pt shooting Nikola Jokić be fair?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2022 14:57:45
I believe the term is a Poor Man’s Joker and even that is quite a stretch.

20 Jul 2022 17:03:48
So should Miles Bridges just take the $7,9 mil qualifying offer for next year that Charlotte still has on the table or take a chance that it gets pulled by Charlotte?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jul 2022 20:45:36
I'm guessing that is he accepted it the league would suspend him immediately so he wouldn't see any money before his legal situation is resolved anyways. He may be better off to wait until his situation is clear (jail time maybe? ) and hope he's viewed in a better light once all the facts are out. If he ends up in jail I think he's probably seen his last NBA cheque regardless of whether he accepts the offer or not.

20 Jul 2022 21:48:36
Trying to remember if Ron Artest still got paid once he was suspended for going into the stands playing in Detroit?

22 Jul 2022 22:07:40
Apparently the league can't suspend him until he either pleads guilty, is found guilty at trial, or charges are dropped. Until the legal system is done with him the league can't suspend him. I remember Silver using executive powers to suspend Donald Sterling, but I don't think he can use that power with a player; CBA presides. So yeah, I guess he should take the offer. Might be the last paycheque he gets from the NBA.

"NBA says #Kings forward Keegan Murray has been named the Most Valuable Player of NBA 2K23 Summer League 2022. Murray averaged 23.3 points, 7.3 rebounds and 40.0% from three-point range in four games in Las Vegas. Read more about Murray in"

Easiest money I have won in a while.

Agree0 Disagree1

Guess who just make over $300 on Keegan Murray winning MVP of the Summer League? Don't tell the IRS thou.

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Jul 2022 15:39:22
Hmm. So, the Kings finished last season with a record of 30-52. Vegas just released betting projection for total win for next season being 31.5 wins for the Kings.

Does a full season of Sabonis and the additions of Murray, Monk & Huerter make betting the over seem like a no-brainer?

Agree0 Disagree1

18 Jul 2022 17:04:22
Possibly since injuries always happen, but as much as Kings improved other teams have as well and gotten healthy. Clippers get Kawhi PG and Wall this year plus full season of Powell. Twolves added Gobert and solid bench pieces. Pels get Zion Daniels and full season of CJ. Lakers will be healthy and have better/ younger bench, plus they’ll always have good odds even with a not so good past 2 years, Nuggets will have more projected wins with Murray/ MPJ back and adding Kcp/ Brown/ Braun on the wings. I still think it’s fair to have them over their win odds and be projected around 36-38.

18 Jul 2022 19:23:00
Warriors Nuggets Grizzlies Pelicans Mavericks Blazers Wolves Suns Lakers Clippers top 10 not in order.

18 Jul 2022 20:52:27
Betting on teams trying to "rest" stars when they play the Kings. There is a history on this.

18 Jul 2022 22:02:15
Seems like most of the teams in the West hovering around .500 winning percentage instead of a dominate 60+ wins team like inth past.

Also, seems like 1 season-ending injury can take a top contending team in the West all the way the lottery.

A huge steal in the draft.. JD Davison

"Davison, the 53rd pick in the draft, finished summer league with averages of 13 ppg, 4.8 rpg, and a summer league leading 8.2 assists per game. He also chipped in 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks per game.

Perhaps most impressive was his 3pt shooting (46.7%) and his assist to turnover ratio of 2.7 to 1. Turnovers were a weakness of his during college, but some people including Davison himself believed he would fare better in the NBA thanks to better spacing"

He still needs a lot of work but I like him. A year or two before being a contributor, but a possible Smart replacement in 3 or 4 years. A good pick for late 2nd round.

I'm actually even higher on Juhann Begarin, last year's 2nd rounder.
