Orlando Magic Situation

Chuma Okeke is better than Aaron Gordon

I don't missed Aaron Gordon

I missed Nikola Vucevic 🤦🏾‍♂️

Okeke/Issac going to be problem for Orlando Magic

Chuma Okeke going to be the next Scottie Pippins

Agree0 Disagree4

27 Mar 2021 04:12:22
Okeke will never see an nba all star appearance.

27 Mar 2021 14:23:38
Nba16 you can't say that.

27 Mar 2021 15:27:00
I can just like Horton won’t either.

27 Mar 2021 18:10:44
Isaac is the next Chandler Parsons good luck.

27 Mar 2021 21:43:19
I figure DLo was an allstar anybody can be one.

28 Mar 2021 06:38:08
3 straight seasons of over 21 ppg and 6 assists idk what you mean by that comment.

26 Mar 2021 21:30:10
With davis and james hurt I wanna see tucker get more touches and see his value.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2021 22:35:57
Sure. So he can gwt an offer as a RFA that the Lakers can't really match because Kuzma's extension also kicks in next season as well.

27 Mar 2021 03:55:41
Most tucker can get like 9 mil for the first two years so Lakers are ready to match anything. Lakers can afford to max out tucker 9 mil pay Caruso and Dennis plus everyone else it’s not like they have three or 4 max contracts like other teams.

27 Mar 2021 06:29:38
Lebron max
AD max
KCP+Kuzma+Deng max slot
Harrell opt in remaoning cap space

Resign Caruso, THT and Shroeder puts Lakets in Luxury tax.

Still have 7 other slots to fill.

27 Mar 2021 14:40:22
The Lakers no this already and they didn't want to trade tucker so there ready to pay. just like the warriors clippers and nets are paying the lakers will too and your super delusional if you think lakers wouldn't pay anything to win. This the lakers not them cheap ass kings.

26 Mar 2021 21:20:08
Can someone be kind enough and explain the difference between a player being "bought out" and a player being waived in regards to the ability of another team to sign the player? I saw Gorgui Dieng was waived today, and I think he would be a quality 3rd center now that the sixers have an open roster spot. Are they able to negotiate with him the same way as they are players who have been bought out? Thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2021 22:46:13
There really isn't much of a difference big picture. The only difference is if their slary is guarenteed for the season or not.

Bought out players agree to leave with only a portion of their salary, but the full salary is counted againsy the salary cap anyways.

26 Mar 2021 23:35:53
A buyout is when the player and team agree to lower the amount of guaranteed salary the player is owed. . Waiving means the player gets the full guaranteed amount of the salary but they are on waivers for 48 hours where teams with cap space can sign the player and split the salary with the team who waived him.

27 Mar 2021 01:43:46
bought out means the player returned a portion of the salary due in order to facilitate the release. Most often its just the vet min they give back, because that's all the releasing team can remove from the cap. But it does allow the releasing team a small amount of cap relief, and a good organizational reputation.
waived players just get their remaining guaranteed salary and all of that goes against the cap
either way player is a free agent and can sign with any team with room and roster spot (other than the team he was released by or the team that traded him to the team he's released by)

27 Mar 2021 03:46:50
Bought out players are waived at the end as well. It’s just agreeing to a lesser settlement if your remaining contracted salary before you are waived.

27 Mar 2021 12:08:04
Correction to my last post. in a buyout the releasing team can reduce their cap by the amount they get back from the released player. Aldridge and Griffin both gave more than the minumum back to give the releasing team cap relief, and in the Spurs case dropped them below the tax line.
Once the player is released though, the releasing team can't claim back anything the player gets in a new contract as cash or as salary relief.

26 Mar 2021 15:14:52
Are the Clippers going to get the Boston/LALakers Rondo or the Dallas/Atlanta Rondo?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2021 16:36:53
check out stats of regular season Rondo vs. playoff Rondo.

I think "Playoff P" needs to pass off his nickname.

27 Mar 2021 01:46:33
@Fredman - If I were a Clipper fan I'd sure be hoping Playoff Rondo isn't the one from his Dallas playoff performance.

27 Mar 2021 05:11:06
Wind- thought they sat him and he didn’t play in playoffs.

27 Mar 2021 12:17:21
he basically quit on them in game 2 of the series, and Dallas decided they'd had enough
Rondo can be great or he can be horrible depending on his attitude and comfort in his situation. LeBron's leadership made the question moot for the Lakers, but I don't see Kawhi or PG as the kind of leader who can correct things if Rondo's attitude isn't right.

26 Mar 2021 14:40:38
Any chance the Kings can get into the buyout market with the $5 mil in cap space that they have after the trade deadline moves?

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Mar 2021 15:28:41
I was going to ask the same question about the Raptors. When Ellenson's 10 day expires they will have 2 spots, but can only spend the vet minumum because they're over the cap.
Lots of teams looking as the buyout market begins. Warriors, Nets, Lakers, Clippers, Wolves, Heat, Bucks, Pelicans, Blazers, Pacers, Spurs, Raptors all have roster spots. The Knicks have some easily waivable contracts and actually have room under the cap to offer something more than the minimum.
@Fredman, who are you waiving to make room? Raptors are all over it if its Holmes lol.
Is Cousins looking for a ring (LAL, LAC, Nets, Bucks) or next year's contract (Toronto, NYK, Miami, Spurs)? Same may apply to someone like Aldridge.
How many guys traded yesterday as salary matches are going to be bought out over the next week?

26 Mar 2021 15:38:28
Why would they do that?
Can't they better tank for an extra year?

26 Mar 2021 16:42:18
Gasupo. Kings are currently only 2 games out of the Play-In round. I could see them trying to sign someone in the hopes of making it.

Fox's 44 points last night definitely suggest that the Kings are not trying to tank. Also, why send out second round picks in trades at the deadline if the plan is to just tank? That 8-game losing streak when Kings players were injured really hurt this season.

26 Mar 2021 16:49:44
Windrapsfan, Justin James is probably the next guy to be waived if necessary.

Because of Bagley's injury, I do not see any big (Silva, Whiteside or Holmes) being waived. And Harkless allows the Kings to move Barnes to PF so I do not see him getting waived either.

27 Mar 2021 08:23:18
Don't get me wrong i want the Kings in the playoffs.
But they have 2 good young pieces in Fox and Haliburton
I hope they can trade Bagley with a lottery pick for another good big, so they can reform the 2000 kings Webber-Stojakovic-Williams (Bibby)

25 Mar 2021 20:35:35
Some people kept saying that teams couldn't send out players when using a TPE, but it looks like Boston sent out Teague along with the picks for Fournier. Is there something more to it?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Mar 2021 12:37:45
I had put it out that no contract could be sent back using the TPE, news outlets put it out as such so I just put out what I had heard. I also heard that Boston gave Orlando cash to pay for his salary along with the two picks. So it just goes to show that ALL meadia outlets put out BS equally.

26 Mar 2021 12:46:15
Also I heard 2.3 mil was sent along with Theis for them to get under the cap.

Any information from anyone here?

26 Mar 2021 13:55:49
I think it is actually TWO separate trades reported as one because the TPE rule is quite clear in the CBA.

Orlando trades Fournier into Boston's TPE and creates a $17 mil TPE for Orlando.

Boston trades Teague and picks into Orlando's new (or another if Orlando has it) TPE.

So it is more a loophole than anything else.

26 Mar 2021 15:11:48
I haven't seen the details of how the trades were structured yet, but Teague could go to Orlando as a separate transaction because he is vet minimum and can be traded without anything coming back. Every team is allowed something around 5-6 M per year to send out in trades, and also can take that much back in trades. Money and picks can be used in a TPE.

26 Mar 2021 16:56:11
AP has the Magic deal as 2 second rounders and TPE for Fournier.

Does this deal really help Boston? My opinion is No! Ainge should have done nothing and used that TPE during the summer.

26 Mar 2021 19:55:05
What I've read in Boston is-

Teague plus 2 2nds for Fournier.

1.3 mil going to Chicago but no cash to Orlando.

Using Poirier TPE to acquire Kornet and Kanter TPE to acquire Wagner, while creating a new TPE by dealing Theis.

The way I read it in the CBA is that you can't add salary to a TPE, meaning if you have a TPE of 17 mil, and you trade a player making 2 mil, you still can only acquire a player making 17 mil, rather than one making 19 mil. But who knows.

25 Mar 2021 16:01:59
MD might get to see Bamba start finally

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Mar 2021 21:46:06
The sad part of no longer having to see thousands of lopsided Gordon Fournier and Vucevic trade ideas is now we will see a new set of equally lame trade ideas.

25 Mar 2021 16:01:18
With Gordon going to Denver, is Boston going to overpay for Barnes now?
