5.5 a year for 3 (or something like that) is a pretty good deal imo. Might be the best Euro since Dirk.

I do get the feeling the more i read about him the more i disrespected him coz Euro.

One things for sure, we are going to see a heavy diet of P&R with the Bulls this year. Laughing

Didnt think that was done.

I thought it was on hold and Suns only making that move if Bledsoe isnt coming back.

Could be wrong.

All 3 of Dragic, him and Bled seems like too much to me.

Intresting.

Strange blend of players.

Dragic and Bled already on the small side for a backcourt, Thomas obviously makes them smaller.

Dragic and Bled going to play about 35mins a game each so we looking at 24 minutes a game at best for Thomas. And you never going to play Thomas with Dragic together against bigger post up 2's like Johnson, Kobe, Matthews...

Has Bledsoe even re-signed with the Suns? Thought he was looking to be overpayed?

Rockets have had a stupid free agency period imo, but at least Lin is gone.

Nah he hasn't, they want to keep him though and said they'd match any offer.

Just wanted to say good on LeBron for going back to the Cavs. Dude could have just stayed in sunny Miami but I think for his legacy (and for himself on the court as well) he made the right choice. He handled the whole thing perfectly imo.

Also I want to express how much a pos GM Morey is Laughing. Advanced stat nerd who will never know what it takes to win a title. I mean ffs Harden is the Rockets' most senior player now rofl

With Monroe, and also Bledsoe to an extent, teams are wary of having their cap room tied up for 3 days only for Detroit/Phoenix to match.

There's also speculation that Monroe and his agent aren't signing anything on purpose to force a trade out of Detroit.

Thomas got S&T'd to Phoenix I believe.

Klay would fit better than Harden. Better defender, shooter, and slasher. You don't need that many ballhandlers on the floor when you've got Curry and Durant.

He'll need to get better help, the current team is nowhere near good enough.

Harden is making the team no matter what, but his playstyle is why I had Beal starting

I agree. The roster as it stands all depends on what Andrew Wiggins becomes. A Tristan Thompson/Varejao frontcourt would get raped by the Spurs(and Bulls, Indiana and arguably the Heat).

From watching what I have of Wiggins, I think from day 1 we will see a stellar defender on the perimeter but vulnerable in the post.

Someone who can hit jumpers from deep and has a unstoppable 1 dribble step back but has consistency problems on his shot. Think he will be very dangerous on the offensive glass (obviously in transition also).

But his handle is too high and I dont see him blowing by defenders, so that will hold him back for the time being.

Something like Andre Igoudala in his 2nd year perhaps is a fair comparison, minus the passing skills and with a better jumper.

14 points, 6 boards, 35% from deep.

I see 12 pts, 6 boards, 42% shooting 33% from 3

not only is handle not that great, but he's a straight line driver. Not shifty at all for the athleticism he has. His first step is great however, so once he improves his handle he will be able to blow by his man more consistently.

You could be right, but I think with Lebron and his offensive rebounding abilities he will get more shots around the rim.

KD shot 40% his rookie year? Because too many jumpers. I think Wiggins will get alot more easy looks close in at the basket to shot 42%. 33% from deep and the points/boards I could indeed see.

Agree about the straight line driver thing, im not sure how much I believe in those guys...Paul George is the same. Need a bit more creativity.

With all that in mind, do you trade him for Love?

For me, no.

I know they want to win now, and Love is obviously an all star and one of the best bigs in the game and the roster is full of scrub bigs.

But they gotta to think about defence and Lebron. Lebron is 30, he cant run forever and defend all the wing guys forever, he will need help. Love's defence is poor and they already have scoring with Lebron and Irving.

Plus, imagine trading Wiggins for Love. Lebron leaves isnt happy and opts out after 1 and then Love doesnt resign Laughing

Yeah that last part is the killer lol and is probably the main reason I wouldn't do it.

But I'll tell you what though if the Cavs go for the home run and get Love without letting Wiggins go (either by trade or FA) then that could be scary.

Kyrie/Wiggins/LeBron/Love/Jao

damn

Minny refused Barnes, Klay and Lee for Love. Not a chance in hell they accept a package which Wiggins isn't part of lol.
