This has been madness.

Woj, Golden State is trading Andre Iguodala to the Memphis Grizzlies, league source tells ESPN. Warriors are sending a 2024 protected first-round pick in the 2024 (protected 1-4), 2025 (protected 1) and 2026 unprotected.

Nice for Grizz here.


Thinking off the top of my head, the Grizzlies shouldn’t be too bad next year.

He was always getting the max. Just like Harris was.


God knows MJ has had his issues as a GM/owner/whatever he is, but honestly I think he did the right thing letting Kemba walk. Some players are not worth a quarter-plus of your cap space. (Of course Kemba would have taken up more, but same principle applies) Let some other team make that mistake and take a chance on someone young like Oubre IMO. Or even a mediocre 3rd/4th option type like Harrison Barnes.


Yeah, splashing $200m on a player to get 10th in the East would have been a big misake.

If MJ was never going to give Kemba the max, then why did he not trade him for assets when he had the chance?!

He then signs Rozier to the worst contract of the day. :lol:

Kemba said he'd take a discount as well.

The Hornets weren't willing to give him 170m.

I know these are crazy numbers, but that's today's market for a top player.

Check out Dame's contract... :shock:

EDIT: Dame gonna get 54m in his final year. And he'll be OLD.

It's not all good for the Warriors, with the trade they get a hard cap and they've only got $18m to fill NINE roster spots....

Again, I actually agree with the decision not to sign Kemba - but they had to get something back for him!

They then use up cap space on a trash PG?! Crazy.

They can't sign Looney now.

Boston will be after him, you'd imagine.

Well, I didn’t say he was the best GM :lol:

Maybe he thought he could get Kemba to stay for a discount. Apparently he was willing but MJ lowballed him below even that :lol:

Still, he was the first (AFAIK) to decline to offer a supermax to an eligible player. On that count, fair dues.

He may have been hoping to get a discount on the regular max rather than the super-max.

Hornets are a mess... :lol:

I feel for their fans, tho.

And now we have another massive PG contract. Again a big overpay - but Denver can't attract shit in free agency, so they have to do this.

Murray at 5/170m! :shock:

Sure, my original point was just that if he ain’t worth a max, don’t give one to him, whoever it may be. :thumbup:

The Knicks are a dumpster fire.

It boggles the mind how badly Dolan runs that ship.

They are the biggest market in the NBA FFS - but players are openly not wanting to go there. :lol:

Ha! Just dug up this quote from the day of the Porzingis trade, it’s nice to be right every once in a while:

The other thing is some Pacers fans need to look at how some other superstars walk out the door before they boo PG for telling management well in advance he wasn't gonna resign.

Very true. And he didn’t tank his trade value by blasting it all over the media.

Not that I haven’t enjoyed him getting bounced in the first round of the playoffs two years in a row, mind...(sorry MB!)

Beverly to stay with the Clippers.

With this frenzy going on, there's not that much left for the Lakers if they don't get Kawhi and it's not like they can trade for anyone.

Need to hunt down a "who is left?" free agency list...

Yep, he'd be a good get.

Here's the free agent tracker on the nba.com https://www.nba.com/freeagents/2019/tracker

Patrick McCaw is available, he's a guaranteed championship.

Per Shams, Free agent Reggie Bullock has agreed two-year, $21M deal to sign with the New York Knicks, agent David Bauman of ISE Basketball tells @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.

Man... these Knicks.

One less shooter off the market for the Lakers to acquire, but.

Regardless of what you think of him as a talking head, Knicks fan Stephen A Smith's reaction to the Knicks missing out on everyone and being trumped by Brooklyn is classic comedy:

Almost as good as his reaction to the draft :lol:

Looking at the Knicks roster, it's not as bad as it could be. Randle is the only above average guy they've signed and even that deal isn't as bad as it could be. So they get a team of average pros on short term contracts, look to build around their young core and reset next year. It's about as good as they could have hoped for after whiffing on free agency, I guess.

Hassan Whiteside to Portland. He's a decent physical big to tide them over till Nurk is fit again. Can block shots (but an over-rated defender), catch lobs & rebound. Overpaid, but only one year contract I think.

Wait, so is Deangelo Russell going to play for the Warriors or not? I had thought not but Woj is talking about a trade with Minnesota but not including DLo...

Maybe they’ll take on Wiggins to become Harrison Barnes 2.0? Would be good for a laugh, anyway.

It's just the Warriors shipping a couple of contracts, I think. They're hard capped so they really need to create some room.

I'm thinking they're gambling on Russell upping his rep even further in the Warriors system & looking at moving him next year.

Edit - which has allowed them to resign Looney.

Kawhi watch has been fun.

Latest is that he's leaning towards staying. Ibaka may have given it away - but these NBA guys love a good troll, so...

My guess is that Kawhi stays with the Raptors. Who knows what he'll decide though. He's NBA's enigma. He rarely gives interviews and shies away from the limelight.

Probably helps that the modern NBA media is obsessed with gossip and obviously uses gossip to encourage the relevance of big markets (it's been a decade of small-medium market domination really) that they desperately want to be the most relevant teams (but not Canada though).

Kawhi to the Clippers... where he'll be joined by PG!

Presti blowing it up!

Gutsy call, but the right one.

I'm stunned. :lol:

EDIT: Per Woj, After Leonard pushed George to find a way to get to the Clippers, Paul George approached the team and requested a trade, league sources tell ESPN. OKC was left with no choice and made the best out of a difficult situation, per sources.

Holy shit. :lol:

Can't blame him for wanting out... but man. Stunned.
