If Aldridge wants to come here, and Portland doesn't want to do a S&T, then you trade DD to Cleveland for Haywood and some draft picks. Than sign Aldridge.
If Masai can do better then that, then...
I heard they are interested in Rondo and are planning to meet with him. That's all I've read though.
We'll have their bird rights.. so we can extend them all.. just can't get any more free agents unless we do S&T's.. but it's not like KD is coming here anytime soon.
Yup.. Paul George did a pretty good job as well a couple of years ago.
Carroll can't slow down Lebron.. that was already proven in the playoffs.
Cavs spending money today:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Iman Shumpert has agreed to a four-year, $40M contract to remain with the Cavaliers, league source...
I get what you're saying.. but Ross and JJ are bad assets.. and one protected pick will not be enough (besides LAC's pick is already protected). Faried is only 25 years old and on a great contract....
I also read that he's still planning to see the Knicks tomorrow.. so who knows if its true or not.
Faried has lots of value around the league and at a great value (considering what we've been seeing today). Denver is probably tanking so will want picks. If Masai can get him for less that would...
I'm totally on board for a Faried deal.
Ross+JJ+two first rounders should do it (Toronto '16 and LAC '17).
Or playing in the East vs the West.. I love that the Raptors are really the only team in the East pining for him (NY doesn't count).
Does it move the dial enough to get the Raptors into the 2nd or 3rd rounds though? That's what really matters.
Splitter was traded to the Hawks for cap relief.
That incentive could be a disadvantage.. not everyone wants to play for their home city/state. Could create more pressure/demands from his family/friends.
Carroll does not blow me away.. he's not a star. He's a really good player but is more of a system player in my opinion. Good size.. like his effort, but doesn't automatically turn the Raptors...
Would love to see Carmelo and Lou together.. will be a riot.
That post just made the 2016 draft pick jump 5 spots in the draft.
Forgetting Houston.. and he liked what they had to offer apparently.
EDIT - NM - you mentioned the Rockets.. can't read today apparently.
If Aldridge cares about the actual bball.. then hopefully Casey's not in the room.
Lakers are out of the running per Spears
Would have to do S&T just like Raptors.. long shots for both. Spurs are still the favorites.
GSW can match any offer.
Amir was awesome.. gonna miss him. But he needs his ankles fixed. $12M for bum ankles was too much.
