    We only signed him because Fatty Spellman was injured to end the season. Not surprised or unexpected.

    AD is just pissed because he wasn't dealt to Lakers before the trade deadline.
     
    Lebron will be 35(with probably more mileage than any other NBA player in history at his age) next season and the Lakers will have to try to build a team around them because they will have more than likely ship all of their young assets to the Pelicans(and maybe a third team). They will also have to hope to find a third star to join them.
     
    In other words, Lakers signing Lebron has the potential to be one of the biggest backfires in NBA history.

    Agreed. But still.
    Completely burning it down by way of your agent cant be motivated by winning. Its all about money. Or eyeballs. 
    I dont think AD is just some innocent 3rd party in all of this. KG wanted out so he could win and handled it with class. AD is acting like a scorned ex. Which unless hes just a little ***** that allows Lebron and Rich Paul to railroad him(not any better), hes willingly participating in all of this. Everything hes been doing recently does absolutely nothing but hurt the Pelicans. Thats incredibly ****** up.

    They are looking to take on a longer term contract or higher contract and get a pick for his expiring contract of $15 mil where the team getting JR can release him for $3 mil.

    It's weird and definitely early but we only had the guy for two 10-day contract stints!

    All the trades are the best part though! 
    Can you imagine how stale it'd be if teams actually had to trade exact picks lol. 
    I think there's a grand total of one unprotected pick floating around(Miamis 2021) and it's treated like gold

    He's not, but the ability to just wave 13 million is. 
    The problem is the Cavs would have to take money back, like The TP/Crabbe deal for it to make sense to another team. Like in theory trading something like Baze for JR, and then waving Smith would make sense for a team. Just say you're the Knicks. You'd Crest another 16 million in cap room. But you'd have to compensate the Cavs heavily, because of the salary cap ramifications. 
    Like say, KD goes to NY and the Knicks wanna dump Hardaway Jr to make a move for Tobias or something. That's where JR makes sense. But would that all be worth giving up like Mitchell Robinson and a pick?

    But is all of that worth 30 million? I still think having Vuc do exclusively that is limiting his overall abilities, but I do get where yall are coming from. Ive always thought itd work, but at what cost? 
    Dedmon for half price, or say another Brook Lopez for 3 million could do all the same things. Or shoot, Omari Spellman wouldnt be terrible in this either/or role with Collins.

    Cavs are looking to trade JR for value. Even if they cut him for his $3 mil guaranteed, they will still be over the salary cap. That's why their preference is to trade his $15 mil contract for value and let the team who gets him cut him at $3 mil.

    I would hope he develops a jump shot, because those were pretty much dunk highlights with a few passes sprinkled in. As seen with Giannis, a player with no consistent jumper that relies on his slashing ability can easily be taken out of a game.

    Smith is only $3.87M of dead cap space, though.
    The Cavs are $26M over the cap and $3M into the Lux penalty.
    They cut him and they're still $14.9M over the cap and are about to add $10M in rookie contracts.  Will put them right back into Lux penalty.
    They still have to unload someone.

    OKC is in luxury tax **** as repeat tax payers. They are looking to decrease a $70 mil luxury tax bill. For every $1 over the luxury tax it cost $5.50 in penalties. So if they trade Roberson who has a  $10 mil salary it'll be $55 million in penalty savings. That still however won't get them under the cap to sign FAs. It just reduces the amount they pay in 'fines'.
    If they just want to dump salary for LT savings it'll be Roberson and 2019 #21 to Atlanta for a 2nd or 2.
    If OKC is also looking to upgrade their roster, my proposed trade is:
    OKC trades - Steven Adams (25x2), Roberson, (10) Patterson (5),  OKC 2019 1st, OKC reduces the protection to top 8 on the  2021 1st owed to the Hawks.
    Hawks trade - Kent Bazemore ($19), Alex Len ($5), picks #41 and #44.
    The deals saves OKC $14 mil and provide them with defense at the wing and 3pt shooting and 3 point shooting at C.
    Hawks get a C (his offensive fit is not ideal but we get defense), another 2019 1st and better porotection on the future pick and we finally get rid of Baze.

    I don't think that's true regarding #17.
    If the Hawks trade #17, then Brooklyn will be selecting for that team that #17 was traded to. 
    The reason the trade cannot be announced and completed is that Atlanta currently doesn't have capspace to take Crabbe until the new NBA season starts July 1 and the moratorium lifts July 6th.
    The deal has been agreed to in principal.

    I don't know if all facts, but they are juicy rumours.
    Info from a guy who says he knows a guy or two or three in the know. 
    Some of the info does not always happen since with the draft and trades things change and are fluid and deals sometimes fall through.

    More juicy bits.....
    Hawks want two additional 1st rounders which we got one (TP Deal). The OKC deal might be draft night or any day.  It'll be Roberson and #21 into our capspace.
    8 is not available.  10 is available for moving down and a future asset. Teams aren't interested at this time but he confirmed my other three guys are right, they are telling player agents that they could move up to get them, just to get them for workouts with no intent of moving up. Teams don't want to trade a 2020 pick. Especially top 10 protected with descending protections. 
     Cleveland is looking to add more 1st with Atlanta and take on additional years and Gilbert is willing to pay LT for 2019-20 for better players. (Hayward and Gallo).  If Atlanta is trading picks with Cavs, Hawks will be looking for them to reduce the protection on the 2020 1st they owe us.
    PHX talking to the Hawks about potentially moving down trade. It seems like it's still on the table. It's seemed to be based around Tyler Johnson and #6 for #10. Not sure if there is more. Seems like there is interest. I been waiting for feedback about this one for awhile. Confirmed that the Suns are interested and have recently asked the Hawks again depending on if their guy is at #6. I am guessing PHX guy is Darius Garland. From what I was told, they aren't too happy about the options at #6.
